We just got back from a stay at the Resort, and only stayed there because it's the nearest hotel to where my mother lives, and we were in town for her birthday. I have to say that the views are AMAZING, the grounds are beautiful and well kept, and the golf course is spectacular. Beyond that, it just sort of goes a bit downhill, if only because the hotel is so old it is in dire need of renovations all around. The rooms are large, as in long, and equipped with a fridge and sink, but were very musty and not very clean. The coffee bar was nice, and had hot chocolate mix for the kids, but no stir sticks were provided on either day of our stay, which we could have used. Minor detail. Anyway, on one morning we went to breakfast in the Tartans coffee shop at the golf course, and the food was decent, and the view of the mountains, trees, and first tee were awesome. It was a little hike to get there, since part of the hotel itself is situated about 1/3 of a mile from the restaurants and other 1/2 of the hotel, but it was a nice walk. Would not have wanted to do it in the rain though. After breakfast we took our 3 year old daughter to the playground, which was obviously built with the original hotel way back when. The play equipment was ancient, and not at all fun for her to play on. Definitely needs to be updated for safety. The only real problem came after we got home. They need to get it together in the billing department. My mother was paying for our hotel, and had physicall stopped there and they ran her credit card. When we checked in they required our credit card too, for incidentals they said. When we checked our statement, they had charged us for the room, and a call to my mom confirmed that they had charged her as well. Talk about a double whammy! They did fix it with a quick phone call, but it never should have happened, since they already had a card on file they didn't need a second one. So to wrap up, beautiful property, average rooms (at least in the section where we stayed), needs updating badly, spectacular views to distract from the rest, and check your credit card bill. The end.
