We stayed for 2 nights in The Lodge, which is situated next to the main hotel. The main public rooms are traditional and beautiful. Our guest room was very small but comfortable.
I booked The Lodge to avoid the crowds of day trippers looking round the hotel. It was certainly very peaceful during the day but was not so restful at night as everything creaks! The bed creaked every time you moved and the people in the room above were up before 6 each morning and the floor boards creaked terribly! Also on the Friday night there was a film being shown in the public room next to our guest room, it was loud and didn't finish until after 1am. I would have mentioned this on checking out but we weren't asked if we had enjoyed our stay.
Breakfast is included in the Lodge prices and was excellent. Delicious fruit and wonderful blueberry scones! We ate this with fantastic views of the Rockies.
The main restaurant was very busy on both evenings. The first night the food and service were very good, unfortunately it was not so good the second night, when we waited almost an hour for our first course.
Overall we enjoyed our stay but there are factors to be aware of when booking!
