We stayed here on a recent staff trip to Fernie.

Check-in went very smoothly, they had all our keys and room allocations ready for us upon arrival. We were a group of 55 so having everything run so smoothly after a 5 hour coach journey was greatly appreciated.

Just beyond the reception is a large pool and a hot tub! All our staff loved it! The pools were open til 10.30pm so it's a great place to socialise before hitting the pub!

The rooms were great, fast wifi and planty of amentities...and the best thing...a bath! After 4 months of showers, it was great to kick back and relax in a big bath tub! Beds were very comfy and there was extra linen in the closet if you needed it.

The staff were fantastic. They gave me loads of tips of good places to eat and drink and also offered me a late check-out if needed. Very friendly and helpful to people who don't know the area very well.

We had a breakfast buffet organised, food was fab, especially the eggs benedict. Great start to the morning.

This would be my first choice if we were to stay in Fernie again! A great hotel :D

Dear Hays37,
Thank you for taking the time to review our property and for your kind words. We do our very best to ensure a seamless check in, especially with large groups, as everyone is usually pretty anxious to get to their rooms after a long bus ride. We are pleased your group enjoyed all of our amenities and that the Eggs Benedict were a hit! We have shared your praise with our staff and look forward to your next visit.

Convenient hotel with very spacious rooms and a clean, sizeable pool and a hot tub located next to the lobby. Very helpful and friendly reception staff. The hotel is located across the street from good restaurants and a short walk from the town center.

This hotel was centrally located and right where you need to be in Fernie if you are not on the mountain skiing. It was clean and nice. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. We received discounted lift tickets at the counter when we arrived just by asking. The pub that is connected to the hotel was a good place for a beer and pub food. Short walk to the downtown and right across the street from a fabulous sushi restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the ski mountain. King Suite has microwave and refridgerator.

We spent two weeks here in January and couldn't find any faults. The rooms were massive the TV was a good size and the beds comfortable. If i return to Fernie i will be staying here without a doubt. If you are used to Europe this really will feel like luxury.

I always stay here when I come do town. Inside pool and hot tub in atrium, great restaurant and pub. The rooms that were added on to the top are the best ones, ask for them. Balconies and great views, beautiful decor and yet the prices are really reasonable. Walking distance to second avenue where all the quaint buildings and stores are. Fernie is the best ski town in Canada and this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: The rooms that were added on to the top are the best ones, ask for them.

I love this hotel, its staff and location. Some think it is a bit far away from the Hill but the bus service is excellent so you don't lose out and you can get around a night time for somewhere different to go.

Breakfast is excellent and the locals seem to enjoy it there too. The staff were all friendly and attentive. I have visited in 2007 and 2008 and am hoping to come back for next years ski season, now I have finished my studies.

My daughter took a liking to the 'lifesaver' sweets so much so that the staff even gave her a big bag to come home with.

I can't wait to come back xx

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and for your kind words. We are pleased you enjoyed the amenities we offer, our central downtown location and the ease of using the ski hill shuttle service.

We're here on our honeymoon and after staying here 2 years ago knew exactly where we wanted to stay again! Great location! Close to the village and bus stops right outside for the hill which is a 15 min bus ride!?
Hotels great! We're in the same bedroom as last time which has a big balcony, kitchenette, big bed, fire etc!
It is looking slightly tired tho with a few burn marks?? On the carpet which were here last time and some of the towels have had hole in!
Service has been great! Especially James who checked us in and has been extra helpful with everything but all the staff have been lovely!
Hot tubs great and pool. We ate at the max restaurant last time and weren't keen but The Pub is our fav! Good food, atmosphere! Dave is our fav member of staff there but again everyone is fab!

We'll be coming here for many years to come and requesting our special room!

Well done park place!

Dear Nicola L,
What wonderful comments, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay again at the Park Place Lodge. When we describe our property we pride ourselves on being able to say we are in the heart of downtown, close to all of the amenities, shops and the shuttle stops right outside our door to take you to the hill. We like to think our staff is wonderful too, it is nice to see you got to know some of them by name! Sorry to hear we were not able to make scheduled improvements to the room before your return visit, we would like to let you know we do have carpet replacement slotted for the spring when the busy winter season is behind us.
