The location is nested amongst the mountains so the view and the air quality was pristine! We were provided with a Day Tour pamphlet that guided us to fantastically beautiful sites such as Athabasca Falls, Mt. Edith Cavell and Maligne Lake and Canyon. We are so glad that we saw all the sites that were suggested as we were filled with awe at the power and beauty!!
The cabins are a bit rustic, but well-maintained. Our room contained a frig and a working wood fireplace but the Wi Fi did not work well at all. As it was not why we went, we were less concerned. Since other inhabitants had better success with Wi Fi, we thought it might be that our room (5A) was at the edge of the forest and out of range of the boosters. Rooms were clean, the king bed was quite comfortable and shower was quite good.
On the day that it was wet, there was a slight sewer smell as we walked through the grounds to our cabin, but there was no evidence the next dry day.
The young, international staff were friendly, chatty as you would like and eager to please. The food was outstanding and we enjoyed eating in the dining room for our breakfasts and dinners. The chef certainly knows what he/she is doing!!
