“Over rated and over priced”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Resort is in desperate need of refurbishing. Rooms and furnishings are dated. Prices are higher than at many neighboring resorts, and breakfast is not included. When a place charges over 150.00 a room, you would at least expect internet capability; here you have to go to the lounge or the rec room to connect. The place is relying upon past reputation. Much is tacky. For the prices charged, one would expect so much more.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the garden and the lake. They at least have something pretty to look at.

Went to 3 valley gap in 2007 and this August (2013) . Love that this is a family owned attraction & although it isn't the most modern of places, it is run with smiles, from the man who welcomes you into the ghost town, to the waitress in the restaurant, everyone is cheerful & greets you like you are family. We enjoyed the ghost town... my teens loved the trains, and had a simple but tasty & filling meal at the restaurant. They even had gluten free options. In 2007 we had a spectacular helicopter ride & stayed in the antique room, which was beautifully decorated with gorgeous antiques. While the rooms were not air conditioned, a cool breeze from the open patio doors cooled the room off quickly.

Room Tip: Room 400 ( the antique room) has a gorgeous view & beautiful furnishings !

We were travelling from Kamloops to Emerald Lake. Three Valley was a perfect lunch time stop. Nothing special about the food - but the view was great - with gentle activity all the time.

The heritage collection was interesting too - again, nothing extraordinary, but pleasant.

And good photo opportunities too.

What a great place to break a journey from Lake Louise to Kelowna. The hotel enjoys a brilliant location and has real character. Although our room was dated, it was clean and tidy with a great view over the lake. All of the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The gardens are beautifully kept and the lakeside beach was an added bonus. After staying in some very upmarket hotels, the unpretentious dining room was a welcome relief. We ate well both at dinner and at breakfast. And the coin-operated laundry - a snip at 50c each for the washing machine and dryer, was a godsend to us, as visitors from the United Kingdon, at more or less the mid-point on a three week road trip. We were pleased that we took the time to visit the Ghost Town which was both entertaining and educational.

We had a great stay at 3 Valley Gap. we were there on the Aug long weekend and they were booked full but the staff handled it well. We were happy to find out they were having a open BBQ in the Ghost Town the night we arrived. It was perfect timing for us as the price charged for diner included the admission to the ghost town & museum. We had a great deal of fun walking through the Museum & Ghost town. The BBQ diner was very well put on the and food was good home cooking. They opened the Ghost town saloon for the guest to sit and eat. Over all a great night. The hotel itself is very charming and well maintained. The room we had was on the 3 floor center and gave us a beautiful lake view. We sat on the balcony and shared a glass a wine while watching the sun go down. The room was an old school standard 80's style but was very clean and had all the room we needed. This is a great stop for families to spend a day and night. The Collection of stuff in the museum & Ghost town is quite amazing you can spend hours looking through this place and never see it all.

Room Tip: Center of the U shape and higher floors for the view

This a charming little resort. The grounds were beautiful with a pretty sandy beach! Although the rooms were not brand new, it didn't matter since we spent our time enjoying all the fun things to do. Ping Pong, Pool, Swimming pool based around the Titanic, and much more outdoors too. Don't expect a brand new hotel but do expect lots to do. The highlight of our trip was the resorts helicopter ride over the area.

First off, I've read many reviews on this hotel that run the gamut from great to terrible. Anyone who rates this place as terrible simply did not do their homework before booking. Three Valley is not a boutique hotel, but it certainly IS a character hotel. The hotel is family run, staff are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. We stayed for two nights and there was plenty to do around the hotel. Pricing for a stay at this hotel is also very reasonable.

Swimming was enjoyable inside and out (though the indoor pool can get crowded). The hotel grounds are beautiful and inspirational to wake up to each morning, sitting on the patio with a coffee. The food at the restaurant was decent as well.

This was leg seven of our 5,000 km + road trip with two children in tow (3 & 11 yrs old).
We booked a two level room and it certainly provided enough space for everyone to relax. TV stations are limited and wireless is only available in the lobby, but we didn't book here to watch TV and sit in the room. The hotel is not air conditioned, but it cools off quite nicely at night (pretty remarkable, as one of the staff mentioned to us that it hadn't rained in the area for over 30 days).
Additional activities around the hotel include helicopter tours (great, but expensive), a ghost town and rail museum. The ghost town was fun and the trains within the roundhouse were definitely great to explore.
We had fun- lots of it! The hotel is quirky, but that simply adds to its charm. We'd stay again and certainly will recommend the place to friends.

Thank you for your extensive review. We are glad you did your homework prior to booking – our hotel definitely has “character” and is not your average hotel. It sounds like your family kept very busy during your 2 day stay with us! Thanks for recommending us to your friends and we hope to see you again soon.
