Moraine Lake Lodge was fantastic – definitely our favourite place on the holiday! We recently spent two nights there and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We had a King Cabin which, though not enormous, was cosy, beautifully decorated, and had great views of the lake. The fire each evening was very welcome and it was a nice way to relax after dinner with a book. It was also really great to be able to enjoy the natural wilderness without the lure of tvs, laptops and mobiles which no-one seems to be able to travel without these days!
True, two nights here did amount to about a third of our overall accommodation budget, but it was well worth it. Beautiful surroundings, excellent walks with the naturalist (we saw lots of wildlife and learnt loads from Liesel), entertaining presentations in the evenings, and lovely luxury touches like the complimentary canoeing and afternoon tea in the library. When we arrived the room wasn’t quite ready, so the receptionist gave us the tour, then we settled down with the paper in front of the roaring library fire, just as tea and scones were being delivered – perfect timing!
We ate in the restaurant on the first night and it was so good, we booked again for the following night. Expensive but definitely the best meals we had on our entire trip. Wine was excellent and the staff attentive and knowledgeable. In fact, all the staff we encountered were polite, friendly and professional, and we felt completely pampered.
I would thoroughly recommend a stay here if your budget allows – we made economies elsewhere and were very glad we did. It was a great place to stay between our other bases in Jasper and Banff and we were very sorry to leave. Only a walk to the Lake Agnes tea house shook off our glum feelings!
