They weren't kidding when they describe this as a wilderness resort. The nearest large town, Lillooet, is 2 hours away on gravel roads. The closet "town" is Gold Bridge with a population of just 27. The hotel is situated on a lake and literally surrounded by mountains. It is a beautiful setting with many trails to hike and bike from...

We visited this hotel with a group of 20 people. When we arrived, some rooms did not have the power, and there was a general problem with hot water. The management argued that there was a technical problem. One day later, we learn that they forgot to order fuel. The owner was friendly and allowed to take shower in her...

I've never had a bad time here! Such an absolutely beautiful setting with endless amount of things to do! My favourite place to adventure! There's nothing like a spa and hot tub after a big bike ride. The plane drops into the wilderness are second to none. And the food is yummy at the restaurant!

Tyax lodge is sort of an oasis in the middle of nowhere. And it really is in the middle of nowhere. The hotel is nice, but not over the top extravagant. Service is very good, although in summer the restaurant/bar staff was stretched a bit thin, making for slower service. The biggest issue for me is the lack of depth...
