“Very quiet resort for golf and skiing”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

We've been coming here for over 20 years. This time we stayed in unit H1 which I wouldn't recommend since its right beside the main driveway and you hear all the traffic early in the morning. Its a well kept older resort, lots of wood finishes everywhere. Handy to have a pool, hot tubs, steam room, exercise room, squash and raquetball courts right in the main rec center. No dining on premises. I highly recommend the Hoodoos Grill 2km just south on the highway, or Strand's restaurant in Invermere which is 20km north. There is a large natural hot springs pool just uphill from the villas, its a must do. Lots of nearby golf, Coy's 9 hole for us hackers and Windermere 18 for intermediates, both inexpensive. Kitchens in the units are very well equipped for cooking, and the units are roomy.

My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary in Fairmont and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The villa was very quaint and we loved the loft and fireplace. Bed was comfy but the pillows were a little high for me. We were impressed with all of the kitchen tools, there was even a salad spinner. I have stayed at some places where the only things were plates, cups and a toaster so this was very nice. There are a lot of villas but it was still very quiet. The recreation center has a lot to offer in both summer and winter, and there are all sort of events/activities throughout the day. Fairmont ski hills is 10 minutes away and Panorama is 40 minutes. All of the staff was very friendly and always willing to help with anything you needed. We had the perfect weekend away and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Ask for one close to the rec center if you plan on using it, otherwise its a short walk.

We had two units on this vacation. My daughter and her family stayed in the two bedroom suite while my husband and I had a one bedroom suite. Overall the stay was good.

The units themselves are in need of updating. Everything is old and musty. Our unit smelled really bad and I had to buy Febreeze and candles to try to eat up the nasty old stink… The kitchen utensils are basic and very cheap… like all dollar store stuff. We brought our own frying pan which I would highly recommend as theirs is not a no-stick one. Also our baseboard electric heater made horrible noises all night long on our first night (we got no sleep at all) but they were very quick to come and replace it the next day.

We loved the fact that we had our own wood burning fireplace which we lit nightly… so nice to snuggle with a warm fire. We also made good use of the BBQ.

The Rec centre was great as it had an indoor pool with hot tub as well as two outdoor hot tubs which we used daily.

We also made use of the Hot Springs pools up the road. Loved soaking in that water best. We usually went in the evening as the price drops for the last two hours… and realistically, how long are you going to soak in such hot water? Our average stay was just about an hour each day.

If you are wanting to go shopping, I highly recommend the 20 minute drive to Invermere. Such a warm welcoming town with the nicest people. We also got all our groceries there as the food shop that is closest to Fairmont is about triple the price for anything.

Room Tip: I would advise you take a look at the map of the resort so you can see the proximity of your buildin...

I like this cute loft resort very much, although I'm not playing golf at all but still enjoy to watch others to play in front of my window. The only poor thing is the heavy rain make the roof leaking, but good thing is as soon as the rain stop, problem will be gone.

We spent the week of June 29 at the beautiful Fairmont Mountainside! This is our second time here. We loved our stay again at FM resort. It is in a nice location, amongst the mountains and trees. Before we ever found this gem, when I think of a mountain resort, the FM resort is exactly what I pictured! It isn't new, but so well cared fo and upgrades are continuous . It is so perfect with its wood fireplace, lovely terrace with a scenic view, no matter where you are situated in this resort. The staff are friendly and accommodating. I asked for a blender, as one was not in the unit and no problem they got me one. The golf course looks very nice, but we didn't golf. The indoor pool is so nice it's high ceilings, cedar walls, and nice big windows facing the mountains!
You cannot go wrong staying here!

Fairmont Hot Springs Resort is a magical place located in British Columbia. Here it mixes the nice home feeling of nice cabins and lovely forests, and several recreation activities. By bringing these together, it creates an unforgettable experience that will make you want to return to its vibrant cabin style life. It creates the perfect environment for all ages, providing activities of all sorts.
Here you can see some of the better sides of British Columbia. There is golfing, swimming, and several organized activities that the whole family can get into. Any of these activities mix the great outdoors with the fun things you can do in the city. This way you can do the things you love such as swimming, golfing, and several exercise classes, into a completely new environment that changes your experience into an entirely new one.
As my vacation came to an end here, I knew that I was going to miss this amazing place. I guarantee that it will make you want to return again and again. If you're looking for a great location to go and indulge yourself in a well blended mix of outdoors and modern pleasures, than this place is what you're looking for

As part of our 3-1/2 week trip to Alaska and Western Canada we stayed for almost a week at this resort and found it to be VERY nice! The condo was in very good condition and the resort had a nice variety of activities and options. Desk personnel were always helpful and friendly and the area offered places to go and things to see and do. The Canadian Rockies are AWESOME!!! We would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.
