We had a superior twin room with a balcony and a view of the mountains. Absolutely wonderful. Drank in the view as we had coffee on the balcony. The grounds are very well kept as are all the buildings . Wish I could remember the block we were in to recommend our room, but it was immediately across from the main building and reception. A large room with two ! easy chairs - hard to find sometimes. Lots of counter space and lots of room for the suitcases on a permanent bench. Nice thick carpet instead of an industrial type carpet. A very large shower with thick fluffy towels. It was a very quiet, relaxing place to stay. We were here for two nights to visit the glaciers. Did not eat at the hotel, but picked up breakfast at the grocery store a short walk away.
