We had a really lovely time at Moraine lodge to celebrate my birthday The rooms, although on the small side are spotlessly clean and well equipped. The complementary/included breakfast was a little disappointing, rather cold and dry by 9.45 and the eggs quite inedible! Otherwise it was a good selection of foods.
We would also prefer to tip generally at the end of our stay, rather than a bill on the breakfast table!
Is this a Canadian custom? We like to include all staff, those behind the scenes too.
Unfortunately our dinner experience was spoiled by misunderstanding the waitress who described the daily specials to us rather quickly. My husband ordered something that turned out to be something else! Happily, the cost of this was taken off the bill It was no fault of the waitress but I do feel that the specials should be In written form so that we could take more care in choosing. Some of the ingredients were new to us and I’m sure it would be wonderful to try them as it seems the standard of cooking was very high. If using too much paper is an issue it need only be one or two copies when your guests are deliberating over the choice of dishes. For us, it’s quite an expensive dinner, a real treat, and I just didn’t feel you were doing it justice by such a poor introduction.
On a happier note, we really enjoyed the canoeing where the staff were enormously helpful and patient, and the presentation given by Nadine Fletcher in the library one evening was excellent, very informative and entertaining.
Sorry this looks like a bit of a rant. We really loved most things at the lodge with the log fire in our room, the fabulous hikes and trails, excellent staff everywhere there including the gorgeous shop. I would highly recommend a stay here for any special occasion.
