We had been tossing up between here and the chalets and so happy we chose the Wilderness Village. We loved the wet room entry to our cabin and used it for muddy boots and raincoats. We were grateful for an upgrade on arrival to the spa cabin. I don't normally enjoy a spa but after a day hiking on the mountain, my cold achy bones appreciated the soak!
The cabin was great, roomy, had a comfy bed and set in amongst the bush. It was surprisingly private and we had a lot of wildlife right at our doorstep. We ate in the restaurant both nights where servings were generous and quite tasty. Our waitress was young and it was her first week so while a little inexperienced, she was efficient and friendly.
We had a drive around looking at other accommodation and to us, the Wilderness lodge was a clear winner for location and rooms. This is definitely where we would stay o our next visit.
