“Would highly recommend NLL with one caveat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed here for 4 nights in July. All the reviews are right. This is a beautiful location and the Lodge itself is magnificent. We have had the opportunity to stay twice in Whistler during the summertime = once in the main village at a really nice hotel and now once outside the village at Nita Lake Lodge. It really is a very different experience and I am not sure which is better.

The staff at Nita Lake were all great, without exception. They were all very professional and beyond courteous but not overwhelming or in your face fake. I give high marks to the person in charge of customer service and employee training/morale. The bikes and kayaks/stuff they had to use are a great option. The walking/bike paths that are mostly paved and run around all 3 of the lakes are wonderful.

I really have only one recommendation and one financial comment about Nita Lake Lodge. The recommendation is to be even more specific about the room and the view. We thought we were getting a full lake view room and come to find out our room was on the right corner of the lodge and the view was partially blocked by the room to the right of us (our balcony was placed back at least 10 feet from the room to the right so we could see the outside wall of the building which blocked half the view). We paid even more for this suite since it is larger and has two stories. Now we ended up liking this room and in fact if we ever returned to stay at the Lodge would ask for this room but at this price point comes serious expectations and this led to an initial bad impression about the Lodge and its clever way of describing (or not fully describing I should say) the rooms. The other is the cost. I guess there comes a point in any cost/value determination where you have to wonder is something worth it or not. I guess with 3-4 years of positive reviews the Nita Lake Lodge has been able to slowly raise there pricing to the levels of the highest 5 star rated properties. I would just caution that there might come a point where there cliental consists of only the ultra rich and wealthy and that would be a shame since this property screams relaxed and refined and not only rich and snotty.

With the above said I would recommend this place to anyone because the location is awesome, the lodge is beautiful and the management has gone the extra mile in terms of customer service! Thanks to Nita Lake Lodge for giving us a travel memory that will last a very long time!

Wonderful hotel! They've thought of everything from large soaker tubs to TVs that swivel to watch in bed to blankets and heaters for lovely evening meals overlooking the lake!

Top notch and I would definitely return.
Keep your eye for discounts and promotions

Room Tip: All the rooms are great

Booked 2 nights at Nita Lake Lodge through Expedia. Arrived to record setting heat and air conditioner out of order. Maintenance came right away when we checked in and said that previous guest had left all windows open, but it would cool down. We went to lunch and walked around for about 3 hours and it was still super hot. Maintenance brought a fan, but we had to prop the door to the hallway open to get any cool air coming in. No other rooms available, completely booked. We decided to tough it out for the night because we couldn't get a room elsewhere, but booked another place for the next night. The evening manager, Stephanie, was very apologetic and truly seemed to care. Upon going to check out the next morning the day manager, Nancy, approached us to see if we would reconsider staying if we got a new room, now available. Long story short, we could not have been more pleased with the outcome of our stay. The view is inspiring, the lake refreshing, food really great and staff completely awesome (except maint guy). Glen, the Canadian Cowboy, our shuttle driver to/from Whistler, was very helpful and entertaining, best ever! We highly recommend this unique and beautiful property to anyone heading Whistler way. Thanks, Nita Lake Lodge!!!

Room Tip: South facing rooms can get very warm in the summer. Obviously, rooms with a view of the lake are awe...

Nita Lake Lodge provided a fantastic sanctuary for us to return to after active days in Whistler and beyond. Staff here were engaging, friendly and really helpful in providing advice about where to go trekking. FYI - the answer is Joffre Lakes, if you're in Whistler in the summer months you absolutely must!

The rooms are big and comfortable, although disappointingly ours didn't have a view of the lake. However, it's the public areas that make Nita Lake Lodge. The bar area has a good vibe and is a relaxed setting for coffee in the afternoon, or drinks and snacks in the evening. You can definitely picture it buzzing during the high ski season.

An unexpected treat was the main restaurant. We eat really well, and certainly did on our BC trip, but the meal here was the highlight. Unexpected combinations that were packed full of flavour. We weren't sure about eating there as it wasn't particularly busy, but we are delighted we did.

Dear Andrew,
Thank you so much for your review. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the lodge. It sounds like you had a fantastic time in Whistler - Joffre Lakes are definitely a 'must do' in the summer time!
We would love to welcome you back to the lodge in the future; perhaps to experience on of our stunning lake view suites or the excitement of the winter season!
Kind Regards,
Nancy Steward - Guest Relations Manager - nancy@nitalakelodge.com

We picked this place b/c of previous TA reviews and a good rate, and from the start it exceeded our expectations. Wonderfully responsive & friendly staff, beautiful location, relaxing environment. We felt very well taken care of. Especially loved the free bikes & boats!

We have just completed a two week holiday to BC and our last four nights were at NLL in Whislter. Delighted this hotel is just outside the town itself so you have more peace and quite but just 10 min drive to the centre. Lovely lake - recommend a lake view too it's lovely. Great hotel, perfectly geared up for summer or winter sports. Excellent food too. Rented bikes, kayaks and a canoe. We shall be back!

Room Tip: Go for lake view room if you can

Recently stayed in Nita Lake Lodge as part of our Honeymoon trip around BC. Stayed for two nights here and it was excellent. The location on the Lake was perfect for us and the hotel provided complimentary shuttle service into the Whistler village when we wanted to eat out on one of the nights. The staff could not have been more helpful and the meals at breakfast and dinner were fantastic!! Thanks again Samantha for all your help after we had stayed and hope you all have a great rest of summer!! Thanks.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel overlooking the lake have fantastic views.
