One of the best (two) nights' sleep I've ever had...the beds are so comfy with thick mattress toppers and great pillows. The room and ensuite were great, really quiet, well equipped with a lovely balcony and a superb view of the glacier. I also like being able to park right outside especially if its raining (which it does a lot of on the west coast). There are friendly, helpful staff There's a lively bar with a good atmosphere, the Landing, almost next door, and lots of restaurants very close. The heli field for glacier trips is right opposite.
