Well situated in the centre of Yellowstone National Park and in pleasant surroundings next to Lake Yellowstone so convenient for exploring the Park.The lodge is made up of 6 chalet-style blocks (A-F) each containing 50 rooms arranged on 2 storeys. The blocks are well spaced out and surrounded by trees. There's also adequate car parking space alongside each block. Accommodation is fairly basic, though it's peaceful and comfortable. As stated elsewhere there's no TV and no free WiFi but the surroundings more than make up for that.
The eating options are the cafeteria-style Lake House and a more formal restaurant which are on separate sites some distance from the accommodation blocks. I only used the Lake House, which is very pleasantly situated overlooking the lake. It's signposted and is a fairly easy walk to get there but it involves steps and I would recommend finding your way around in daylight as all the blocks look the same and there's very little lighting, so a torch might be useful at night. There's an emphasis on eco-friendliness throughout the site. I believe advance bookings are necessary if you want to use the restaurant. The menu choice at the Lake House was quite limited (including bison burger and fish and chips) and service was slow. Last orders for evening meals are at 8pm. Breakfast starts at 7am. The doors to the building weren't opened until then by which time a queue had formed outside. It wasn't clear what options were available for breakfast but it was necessary to pay at the counter before proceeding to the buffet area, which led to some confusion and delay.
It's at altitude and the temperature drops considerably overnight so be prepared for cold mornings in summer. There isn't much option for buying provisions on site but there are adequate facilities at the main Park sites such as Old Faithful.
