Not a peaceful place. We had the unfortunate experience of staying over New Year's. Our room was tiny and noisy. The buzz and exhaust of engine fumes were pervasive. the trail out to the Queen Charlotte was damaged due to rain, so no access to waterfall or the track.
the staff were pleasant, but it was a great disappointment. they suggested we hike to the hammocks for some quiet, but the weather was cool and we were resting our legs from previous hikes.
