“Very clean room excellent for family of four”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

We stayed in a one-bed room suite on Aug 1st for two nights. The room is very clean including the sofa bed for kids. Bathroom has bath hub and separate shower. Full kitchen is very useful for making breakfast and quick meal, which is good for a family. Quiet, quiet, quiet! It's right next to the Lost Lake where I jog early in the morning for both days. The location is in the Upper Village but it only took us (with my little 5-yr old) 10 minutes to walk to the Blackcomb Base where the Kids Adventure Zone and Gondola is. From there it takes you to the Peak-to-Peak. It takes about 15-20 minutes to walk back to the hotel from the Whistler Gondola which is on the far end of the Whistler Village. You would prefer to walk around when you are in Whistler anyway. On the second morning I ran from the hotel to the Whistler Village, through the entire village and back to the Lost Lake, then ran around the lake before going back to the hotel - I was jogging slowly but it took me only 40 minutes. Whistler is so amazing - I will never forget that morning run.
The hotel has a small outdoor heated swimming pool and a hot tub. My kids love it after long play days. Before bed, they played iPad because the hotel has free Wi-Fi. Parking is free and underground.
Next to the lake, walking distance to the "downtown" Whistler, quiet and clean room, full kitchen and bathroom, outdoor hot tub, free parking and wi-fi. What else do you need?
Best of all, it is cheap - we paid CAD 120 per night. Booked online Whistlerblackcomb.com.

Room Tip: Ask for the room on the 3rd or 4th floor. The pool is on the 2nd Fl. The room on the 1st FL is dark.

I've tried other hotels in Whistler and by far, this is my favorite! It's right across the road from Lost Lake, there's a bus stop right in front of it, a 15 minute walk to the village, a 5 minute drive to the village, great and spacious underground parking, great rooms, great pool and hot tub, and great wi-fi!

But there's no pets aloud.

Happy Traveling!

Steve

We booked an anonymous room on the Whistler Blackcomb website as a last minute deal and were given a one bedroom room at Horstman House at a significant discount. It turned out to be a perfect home away from home for my wife and I for our 5 day stay at Whistler.

The location is as good as pretty much anywhere in Whistler given the convenience of the free shuttles. The full kitchen and TV of Horstman House was a great way to spend the evening while we recovered from days of skiing.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Everything was easy to use. There are bus stops right in front of the building and it is a 5 minute trip to the chairlifts and/or village.

This is our second stay at the Horstman House, and the first time in winter. We will definitely make this our repeat lodging in Whistler. It is in the upper village, comfortably away from the crowds, yet convenient to town with a free bus stop right outside. In terms of ski access, the Blackcomb day lodge was just 3 stops away, and you can supposedly ski back to it (although we didn't try this).
Accomodations were cozy, and pretty standard for this class of condo. Kitchen could have been stocked with a fry pan, but otherwise had everything we needed. There is a gas fireplace, and 2 small flat screen TV's. Although the one in the bedroom was hooked up to a VCR, which probably no one uses anymore. The outdoor hot tub and pool is a nice feature of the property, and it was not overly crowded when we went to use it. Other amenities include locked storage for skis, pool table in the lobby.
This is a small property, low key, but very comfortable, and convenient.

Perfect location. Close enough to the village but just far enough away. We were there during Crankworx and it was great. The pool area was fantastic. The 2 bdrm was over 900 sq ft; huge.

Been there for the second time last January (from the 23rd to the 31st), now with my wife, kid, sister, brother in law & 2 nieces in a 2 bedroom unit. Everything just the same: quiet place in the upper village, good neighborhood & 3 minutes drive from Blackcomb`s base. Room still clean and in good shape. Honest residence-like service. Just perfect for the rate we've paid. Recommend again!

Wow, the apartment we had at Horstman House was just fantastic! Really spacious, big comfy bed, wonderful bathroom and all the mod-cons, and all this for a fraction of the cost of staying in the very centre of Whistler. The down-side? A 5-minute drive into the village. Big deal, eh? You also get a great view of Blackcomb mountain, and are just minutes away from some great bike trails.

Staff were accommodating enough, but overall this place has the feel of a 4-star hotel. Added to this the gorgeous swimming pool, hot tub and BBQ facilities, as well as the free pool table and games room next to the lobby - it all added up to a really rewarding stay. Would DEFINITELY recommend!
