After carefully reviewing their website and finding all the information I needed, I was able to book a log cabin. The website showed a map of the grounds and showed train tracks. Trains are expected along the Trans Canada Highway as there is no other place for them to go. At least they did not whistle like in Lake Louise, that was everytime a train passed by I heard a loud, long whistle. Not at the Hot Sprngs though, they just pass by. The staff seemed very accomodating and friendly. When I was booking over the telephone the receptionist was very informative as to how much it would cost and what is included with the cabin etc... There was a No cancellation policy and I was asked if this was the date that I would be able to come and to make sure before booking, I said it was okay as I have my holidays then. Upon arrival I was greeted by a friendly face who checked me in and showed me on a map where everything was located. The times of the Hot Springs, which were included with my cabin, and the times in which breakfast would be served. I enjoyed the cabin, it was exactly as they described to me. I wasn't able to have a campfire as there was a fire ban on but it did not ruin my stay.
The cabin was amongst some trees so it kept it quite cool. The atmosphere was definitely mountainesk. The nice fresh air and the peace at the scenery made this a nice treat away from the hustle and bustle of regular life. The breakfast was hot, bacon, eggs, toast, hashbrowns. It was a great start to another busy day.
The resort is located between two National Parks but I was only able to experience one as my time there was short.
Nice friendly people, clean facility and you could see the workers trying to keep up their cleaning with the amount of people who visited there.
The water was great to drink, refreshing as it came from a well (natural water).
My overall experience was as great. Not like a hotel room by far, it was rustic as expected.
I would return for another visit in the future.
