My husband and I stay here for 2 nights last weekend (June 27-29th) We were able to book one of the cabins with a beautiful view of this gorgeous lake. We arrived at about 2 pm - I had asked for an early check-in but our room was not available. No problem - we decided to go for a paddle on the lake. Just fantastic! By the time we finished about an hour later our room was ready. It was very nice (Cabin 7) but actually smaller than I thought and for $625/night it was a bit of a disappointment. The Wifi is very sporadic which we knew would happen - you are in the wilderness. Anyhow we sat on the deck and had some bubbly that the hotel had left for us in the room which was very thoughtful as we were there to celebrate a special occasion. We had made reservations for dinner. The dining room is lovely with a great view of the lake but our food was not great at all. Both of us were very disappointed with the food both nights. No taste, tough pheasant and bison. I had the Sable fish the second night - it was cooked very well but there was no taste. The wine list is fairly good.... Breakfasts were better.
So - a fabulous location but they need to work on the food aspect in our opinion and again for the price you pay we expect more.
The staff was very friendly and we met some lovely people from all over the world.
Our hike to Consolation Lake with the staff naturalist was really fun. We also did the lake trail and the rock pile.

If you have a lot of time on your hands and need to get away from city life or the just a nice weekend getaway. This is the best ever for peace, quiet, scenery and for making any serious life decisions you may be contemplating.The restaraunt has a wonderful menu and the staff are awesome! There is a gift store with a lot to offer.

Room Tip: We went on Canada Day and it was still not too busy. I suppose that is because it was on a weekday...

We had an amazing time, were able to unwind to the fullest, had beautiful scenery and exceptional staff. The breakfast (complementary) were out of this world. Every once in a while, we wish we had Wi-Fi that worked more effectively along with some of the creature features we've come to appreciate back home…but the point of the place is to be low-tech I suppose so just know what you're getting into and embrace it :-)

Well we did see some bears but as yet no moose or Mountie .
The location here is simply out of this world with views of the lake and surrounded by mountains .
We are not what you would call out door types but we loved everything about this place , Easy walks or hikes if you wanted . Lake Louis is near by and Banff an easy drive .
Staff were great and the restaurant although a little pricey was pretty good value taking the location into account .
We stayed in one of the lodges in the grounds , fabulous ! Loved lighting the fire every night ( haven't done that for years )
Smashing place to stay .

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabins are architecturally well designed and very comfortable. We loved the low corner with its fire place and comfortable seating in front of such a dramatic view of lake and mountains in Cabin 18. It was very cold and misty while we were there but we could enjoy the view and watch the birds and wildlife in comfort. The restaurant meals were good. The staff were extremely helpful. A highlight was the "Birdbrain" talk.

Firstly many thanks to all for a special stay, from the moment we arrived, we felt the warmth of the employees here, not like your average large hotel experience, every visitor is made to feel special here. This property may not have the luxuries that the bigger Fairmont has, but if you want preferential service, world class cuisine, views that make lake Louise look shabby, visit the lodge and all it has to offer.
Best reason to stay at this hotel is because it's home from home with log fires in each guest cabins. Try the delicious Elk currently on the menu. Many thanks for a great stay:)

Room Tip: Go for the lower tier lodges 10-13 better view of lake.

From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed by the friendly staff once we stepped out of our car and checking in was a breeze. We were transported right to our cabin door steps and given an orientation of the room and lodge facilities. The king cabin had everything to keep us comfortable, right by lake as requested, incredibly cosy and had magical views of Moraine Lake. We had snow fall that evening and we lit the wood fireplace which was already set for us, the room ambience is simply extraordinary. The experience of sitting at our private balcony in the quiet evening facing the lake and mountain peaks to experience the tranquil and peace here is indescribable. You have got to experience this yourself. We booked a few months in advance and the Manager Michael Clark handled all our reservation queries and requests efficiently and gave us all the information and assurance needed for this stay, the staff we encountered here were all extremely warm and welcoming, simply commendable. Do yourself a favor if you are visiting Moraine Lake or Lake Louise area, stay here to experience this magical place.

Room Tip: Go for the King cabin
