I made several mistakes this ski season. One was to book late. The other was to not look at Trip Adviser (as that would have meant I would have avoided the third mistake). Third, I booked a "family" room at the Denman. It was clealry designed as a one-bedroom arrangement with a small living area. They have converted it to a "family" size by simply cramming in 3 single beds into the already small living area. There were 2 chairs in the entire place for 5 of us! Note: this place cost us approximately $1,000 per night.
One of the family was not skiing so she basically had to lie on a bed (or go into the lobby area) to read a book. It was so dispiriting to have to come back to the room each day. Oh, hot water also ran out (lovely when in the snow) and the cleaners skipped our room one day.
Look, the front desk area, restuarant and bar are all fine but the rooms are too small and neglected. They need to upgrade the rooms. Spend some money! They need to be realistic about their rates.
This was a truly budget accomodation experience (for which I happen to have paid a lot of money).
