Beautiful old property which, with some creative investment, could be a true mountain gem. Built in the 1929s, this hotel has the persona of a once semi-grade dame whose lack of care and maintenance has become somewhat embarrassing. We arrived at 6:00pm. After a day of hiking, we eagerly anticipated our dinner reservations, which the host had indicated were 'limited'...

Thank you very much for reviewing your recent stay.

We stayed here for one night and the room was ok. It was quite small and the lodge itself is a little dated in the rooms but the lodge in general was fitting for its environment and definitely has personality. It's good for a night stay stopover. Has a hot tub too! That wasn't too bad!

I absolutely loved this hotel It is old for sure but has such interesting history and charm. It doesn't matter at all that you can't see the lake as it is only a gentle short stroll away. There are lots of lovely cosy lounge rooms to sit in with friends to chat or play cards or you could choose to...

After triumphantly completing the Plain of 6 Glaciers hike in the snow, we felt we deserved a warming cognac and a sit by a fire. The Chateau had no such thing and was full of tourists hustling and bustling around. We decided to head back to Banff when the Deer Lodge caught our eye, and are we glad we stopped!...

My daughter and I had been hiking the Plain of Six Glaciers at Lake Louise. It was raining and then snowing most of the way. We were looking forward to a warming drink by a welcoming roaring fire by the time we got back, but discovered that the Fairmont at Lake Louise didn't have any open fires anywhere and it...
