5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Five of us really enjoyed dinner with a bottle of wine. The food was excellent, the service was superb. Salads were enjoyable, the fish dishes and bison steak were great. It would be nice if they took reservation for fewer than six people, but everyone tried very hard to accommodate. One of our party was getting on the west bound... More

The Belton Chalet is located across the street from the Amtrak station in West Glacier. It was extremely convenient to get to and close to the entrance of Glacier National Park. The chalet is very old and historic. You can hear the creaks in the floorboards and see much of the original structure throughout. The chalet staff was very friendly... More

After yesterday's excellent meal and review on Trip Advisor. Tonight we were placed in an adjunct room next to a table of 7 noisy diners. The acoustics in this small room were such that we could barely hear the server tell us about the specials!!! One bread plate and salads were very good as the night before but the mouse... More

We took the Amtrak out to glacier national park. The Amtrak dropped us off right across the street from the Belton Chalet. Great location for the train and it was 2 min. Drive to the park entrance. The Belton was refurbished beautifully! Everything was spotless! The staff was eager to help and was very friendly. They had complimentary coffee and... More

We stayed 4 nights in this historically renovated hotel (one of the first built in Glacier NP) that makes you feel like you are back in the turn of the last century. The train-line does create noise at night, but since the hotel was built because of the line, it is hard to complain. If you are wanting to explore... More

We stayed for three nights recently and really loved the place. We recommend asking for a balcony room - ours faced west. Yes the train goes by at night but seriously it's not that loud and in our opinion it added to the charm: it's definitely an authentic old fashioned mountain chalet. It is in great shape and well-appointed. The... More

We spent two nights at the Belton Chalet. Our standard room was small, but had all the basics. The weather was moderate, maybe close to 80 during the day, leaving the room exceptionally warm. Housekeeping could have been more attentive - soap and drinking glasses weren't replaced after our first night; and the ground level window was left wide open... More

A 1910 Hotel with only simple upgrades. No TV and slow wifi. Not complaining as the change of pace was great. Actually had an opportunity to talk and laugh with my wife of 46 years. She's a nice lady. Location was excellent and the park gorgeous.

Park accommodations are difficult at Glacier National park due to the limited facilities and short season. Belton Chalet is just outside the park boundary on the west side. It is just a truly wonderful hotel! Built in 1910 by the Great Northern Railway it is historic and has been renovated to preserve the character yet is comfortable and convenient. The... More

We spent one night in the Belton. Rooms were small but quite adequate. We loved the history of the hotel. Coffee and cinnamon rolls in the morning. Dinner at the restaurant was just OK. Menu quite intriguing but execution not that great.
