Travelled from the UK as a family of 4 plus father in law and niece(16) for a ski hol. Had a one bed loft condo, was ok, clean, beds were comfortable altho found it slightly strange that double bed in loft area had a duvet but all other beds had sheets and blankets. My father in law was a bit cold with one blanket but found another. Heating controlled by air vents in the floor/wall which you can adjust temp of but it was quite noisy when on. Bathrooms clean and ok, good to have 2 for the 6 of us.
Main issue we had was not really designed for self catering very well. Yes had fridge, kettle, microwave, dishwasher (old but functional) - the cooker was very old, rings worked fine but main oven had heating elements top and bottom, no metal trays to cook things on so garlic bread and pizza got a bit burnt. Resorted to cooking on pieces of cardboard. Only one decent sized saucepan and no scissors (thankfully had my nail scissors to open packets!)...
We had aimed to mainly self cater due to fussy nature of children's eating but this did prove a challenge with the equipment provided - think you are expected to self cater by heating ready meals in microwave or heat soup? Also not helped by 3 of the 6 of us being unwell during the holiday.
Looked for the hotel gift shop - shut for refurbishment, girl on desk said 'I dont really know when its going to open again'.... Tried the pool one night - was freezing! Hot tub packed with lots of children...
As for the ski resort, the hourly shuttle bus from the hotel only took about 7-8 minutes to get to the resort - the lessons were good and lots of choice of runs for varying abilities. The Lake Louise ski resort itself could do with more food variety (mainly fried things with chips) - and why, during the week, they closed one of the 2 hot food serving areas - so everyone forced to queue in the one area - then they kept running out of, say hot dogs and you would have to wait 10-15 minutes for the next load. We routinely had to wait 25-35 minutes in a queue for food, which when you only have an hour between am and pm lessons is not really acceptable! Will be commenting on their page.
On the whole a reasonable place to stay compared with the cost of this hotel versus others; room was serviced and cleaned well (they arranged my daughters cuddly toys on her bed which was sweet) - but not great for hoping to self cater!
