“Great place for a fun lunch”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We stopped in for lunch with our friends and got sampler trays to share along with a afternoon cocktail. Incredible view of the lake and the staff was both attentive and very friendly. I would highly recommend it if you don't want a full sit down meal.

“Sublime view, exellent staff”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

What a treat after a day of hiking! Beautiful hotel, tasty cocktails, premier service. On the pricey side, certainly, but worth it.

“Worst excuse for afternoon tea ever!!!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Today we visited Lakeview Lounge overlooking the beautiful Lake Louise for afternoon tea.

It was the worst afternoon tea I have ever had the misfortune to have!

-The scones were under baked
-The sandwiches were not sandwiches and were dry
-The clotted cream was not clotted cream
-The cakes were bland and could have been from a packet
-The tea was poor

I am English and have taken afternoon tea at the savoy and the ritz, the rubbish I had today was an insult to everything afternoon tea should be

This venue is also sold as a heritage site, in my opinion it is a blot on the landscape and the decor resembles a poorly maintained theame park

PLEASE DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS POOR IMITATION

“Lounge closed?”

We visited after dinner one evening only to find lounge closed at 8pm in May 2014 and it was hotel policy at this time of year?
It was such a let down not to be able to use an expensive hotels facilitiesM,

“Still Excellent”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

My husband suggested a Mother's Day lunch at Lake Louise. We chose to go on Monday to avoid the weekend traffic. We missed the bus tour rush and were seated in the Lounge at the large picture window. Of course the scenery is awesome. There is still lots of snow on the lake and glacier. The atmosphere is hard to beat.
The service was great as usual and our meal was excellent. We both chose the Rigatoni Puttanesca. The flavours were well balanced and the dish not too spicy. A robust Chilean Red complemented the pasta. We skipped dessert but had espresso and cappuccino. Both served with small biscotti, the best ever. We try to visit the Lakeview Lounge every month or so. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service. Parking is also validated.
