“Don't rent unit 209”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

My son and I travelled to Big White on the weekend of January 5/6, 2013. We were very excited as this was our first time at the resort. I booked through the central reservations line. The Chateau Big White is nice. It has free parking and the staff are very friendly. We put in unit 209 right beside the door of the ski in/out door. We didn't know this until we went to our room. There is also a lounge and a restaurant to the right of the unit as well as a bar right across the alley of the room. Needless to say we did not get any sleep between the people leaving the bar all through the night, yelling from the one across the alley and in the hotel itself. Very very loud. When checking out I mentioned this to the staff and they have heard those complaints before. I was very disappointed. My son was there for a snowboard competition and needed sleep. We will go back to Big White for sure but we will definitely not stay at the Chateau Big White.

Room Tip: Don't rent unit 209!

BWCR, Manager at Chateau Big White, responded to this review, January 24, 2014
Dear Lissa A,

Thank you for providing your feedback and comments about your stay with us at Chateau Big White. I am sorry that you were unaware of the noise that can occur around this area of the hotel. We do post alerts about this issue on all of our descriptions of this unit and others with similar concerns. However, at the time, your options may have been limited by availability as the reservation was made one week prior to arrival.

I hope your son is still competing and that your family returns to Big White to bring home fonder memories -- and possibly a podium finish!
