A 12 room post and beam hotel/lodge in the heart of Yoho National Park, Field BC. Home of Truffle Pigs Bistro and Lounge: award winning and nationally and internationally acclaimed eclectic bistro. This is a unique family run property in the thick of the rocky mountains that is unpretentious, comfortable, welcoming and human. The staff is likewise : energetic, passionate and professional. This property is a fantastic family hotel, romantic outdoor couples mecca, a hikers hang out and a skier friendly lodge that is minutes from some of Canada's most prestigious ski hills and mountain destinations. Winter is cozy and tranquil & summer is relaxing and chaotic: an atmosphere unlike any other in the Canadian Rockies and not to be missed. Rooms are clean and spacious, freshly renovated and affordable. The property has free parking, WiFi, coin laundry, games room, manicured gardens and immediate access to mountain terrain. Cell service is now available in Field.

Decent, clean room. The train did go directly by the hotel but it just became white noise after awhile. The close proximity to Emerald Lake was a big plus. Dinner at the restaurant at the lodge was above average. One negative is no breakfast options at the lodge or elsewhere in Field right now.

Perhaps this place has changed hands as the reviews of late show a bit of a trend. When we booked this it looked ok and the location is good - Yoho national park has so much to offer, Emerald lake & Takakkaw falls are within 15mins. Don’t be fooled by the new website and the fancy dinner menu (so expensive) - the lodge is dated. Take a look at a few photos attached. It was mostly clean but we found hairs in the bed, something others have stated in reviews also. Please bear in mind the railway is right by the lodge and will have freight trains periodically in the night going past. Twice we had emails from the lodge that distributed everyone’s email addresses to everyone - not very data protected. We did highlight this on email and asked questions about the menu only for our emails to be ignored - again something others have mentioned. The room wasn’t cheap either, they seem to be solely relying on location here. We would have raised these issues on check out but there was no one to talk to at the time & as we were just there for the night we wanted to get on to see emerald lake (which is well worth a visit). All in all, not great and poor value for money

We stayed in Field after a 5-day hiking trip in Yoho. The grounds are nice, with outdoor patio seating where we had a glass of (our own) wine .We were disappointed to find that they do not allow reservations at the restaurant, nor do they cater to hotel guests (for example, offering to text when your table is ready). Unfortunately, during our stay, they had a staffing issue and advised by email that they could not offer breakfast. Upon check-in, they said coffee, muffins, etc would be available, but at 8:00am. Many travellers are gone by then, would be nice if offered earlier. Rooms were nice, lovely wooden beds, nice bathroom/toiletries (shampoo but no conditioner).

Stayed 2 nights in the appropriately named Room 101. First impressions of room was dust on all the surfaces, bed frame, light fittings, bedside table etc. Room was incredibly hot despite it not being a particularly hot day. The heat seemed to come from the bathroom floor. There was an air con unit in the room which was effective but very noisy, so at night we had to switch it off and leave the windows open. It was Saturday so there was music from the bar? which did not stop until midnight. Unfortunately the lodge is right next to the railway line so you also get a lot of noise from trains stopping and starting all night especially if you are forced to leave windows open. Room seemed to be equipped for one person, one bedside table, one chair. Hairs between duvet and sheet, toothpaste splashes on the bathroom walls which remained there despite the room being cleaned during our stay,and some stained towels give the impression that no one is checking on the cleaning. We ask if the heating could be turned off to be told there was no heating on it was residual heat. Whole room needed a refurb as furniture was shabby, bits of skirting missing, crack from ceiling to floor in one wall. Would not stay there again.

We stayed at the Truffles Pig Lodge (Queen with Kitchenette) Room B4 for 2 nights. Firstly, it's in a good location with decent amenities. You had shampoo, soap, body lotion, towels, and a cupboard of kitchen appliances and cutlery etc. That said however, no matter how old an establishment is, the most basic requirement of any lodging/hotel/hostel should really be about cleanliness. This, was most definitely missing during our stay at Truffle Pigs. Which is disappointing for me, since I was looking forward to staying at a cute sounding lodge... There were strands of gold AND dark hair folded and stuck in between the allegedly "clean" towels. And speaking of towels, a sticker on the bathroom mirror stated that should towels be placed in the tub, they will be changed. We placed 2 towels in the tub after one night, but upon our return on that very day, both towels remained sitting in the tub despite room service. Also, many random strands of hair underneath the quilt and under the pillows... (Made us question if the sheets were cleaned out to begin with) An utter disappointment. Lastly, we were not sure if breakfast was included in our room rate or not. There was no clear explanation given to us during our check-in process. Sadly, on the last day upon check-out, we realized that some muffins, fruits, coffee, tea, and juice were served to patrons. At the end of the day, one can provide benefit of doubt regarding the lackluster service rendered by Truffle Pigs' employees... (maybe they're not paid enough / having a bad day / whatever) However, the most disconcerting event remains - cleanliness issue, and poor hygiene.
