I have to say that Deer Lodge was an ideal retreat to stay in for a few nights, away from all the hustle and bustle of Banff. I am shocked by other reviews as we found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. As we were on our honeymoon, chocolates and a card were left in the room by the staff for us which was a lovely touch. We had a lovely, cosy room with a balcony overlooking the road . This road was not very busy, but we came in April which was quiet season for Canada.The room did not have a TV or stereo and this was a welcome change and peaceful. We had bath salts and the bath was great and deep, perfect for lounging in after a long walk in the snow around the lake.
This hotel is not ideal for all as it is quiet and authentically rustic. It provides a quiet retreat from the chateaux which looked so busy and hectic when we were up by the lake we did not even bother to look around!!!
The food in the restaurant was expensive, but of very high quality and very different combinations of flavours. I recommend the game platter. I do agree with another reviewer that when busy, service does suffer and after complaining we were given free shots of ice wine-that warms your cockles!!!
