We took advantage of the Lakeview's excellent wintertime "Sweet deal" package which includes a room and two meals at an extremely competitive price. Because the prices were so good, we decided to upgrade to a vacation suite in the new wing of the hotel. The room was spacious, attractive and well-appointed, so it was definitely worth it.
The hotel restaurant was a treat, and can be best described as "country upscale". Certainly not a suit-and-tie kind of place, but classy just the same with good food and great service.
The hotel offers some nice amenities like free DVD rentals with a good selection of recent movies. There is also a pool, sauna and hot tub, but since it was a long weekend the area was filled with kids so we didn't spend a lot of time in there. Families were also using the games room equipped with a pool table and a basic selection of video games and pinball machines.
As I said, the room itself was excellent and the suite had a very handy kitchenette. The bathroom was very well designed and impeccably clean. The room had a nice big balcony off the living room although it was much too cold to use it.
While Gimli is a hub of activity in the summer, be warned that it gets much quieter in the winter. There are museums, shops and restaurants nearby, but it probably won't hold your attention for more than one day. But with rooms as nice as these, you might not want to go outside in the first place!
