Like many I was back after having had such a terrific time here about 4 years ago. We were disappointed. The service was sufficiently friendly but insufficient in terms of competence and conveying a sense of welcome and being attuned to client's needs. We were billed for things we did not consume, most of the wine by the glass was unavailable (as the lodge was soon to be closing down for Winter -- but people its $300 a night or so!); and many of the bottles of wine were not available all. Unsurprisingly we were pressed by the staff to drink beer! I also found the room to be a bit cold at this time of year.
On the bright side we found the food, although highly priced, to be excellent. And of course its the most spectacular setting and the lodge itself is a beautiful design. I hope that it get backs the wonderful vibe it had a few years ago.
