My wife and stayed here for three nights in late-September as part of our reward for weathering hectic summer full of home selling and buying and packing, packing, packing...and then unpacking!
We have stayed at the Mission on three other occasions and have visited the Casino there five times, inclusing its opening 10 years ago. Our room was upgraded to a gorgeous mountain-view end unit with cathedral ceilings and a good sized patio. We love the smallish casiono whose staff are uniformly pleasant and we even found some "friendly" machines - no so friendly though as the one on which I won $10,000 a few years ago!
We took meals in the golf club (great menu-great food) and in the main restaurant, the Purcell Grill, whose menu, service, food and presentation were all first-class.
If you don't play golf, there's not too much to see and do other than the exercise room (well-appointed) with outside pool/hot tub and walks up and down from the Mission.
As the Kootenays are one of our favourite travel destinations in B.C., we make a point to visit and stay at the Mission whose peaceful surroundings are most relaxing.
Over the years though, we have found that grounds and hotel maintenance seems to be slipping with marks on public and room walls and furniture noted. A number of the public area chairs are also in need of cleaning or replacement.More
