Tamarack Club
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Ellicottville
Reviewed 15 October 2010

I have been to Ellicottville many times and was delighted to find that Holiday Valley has opened up a new Hotel! The Tamarack Club was absolutely beautiful! We had room overlooking the mountain/golf course. The room was new, clean and the staff was very accomodating. The room came with a full kitchen, (stove, microwave, coffee maker, sink) kitchen supplies which is great for families so you don't have to eat out for every meal. We were provided a crib for my 16 month old son upon arrival. The amentites were great. The new pool area was fun for the entire family. My son played in the kiddie pool all day. There is also a play area next to the pool that kids can go to as well. My husband and family members enjoyed golfing and on the Black Diamond Course and the restaurant in the Hotel was very good as well. We also went to the spa at the hotel and it was wonderful. We have decided to go back again next year!

Stayed at Tamarack recently on a weekday night. Got a deluxe single. Was a bit larger than a good hotel room. Had a little kitchenette with dishes. Nice, large bathroom. Couch. LCD TV. Limited channel selection, though. Wonderfully comfortable bed - slept great. No radio reception on the first floor (I like waking up to the radio in the morning). Fantastic location. Workout room seemed nice, but didn't have the time to enjoy that. For the price paid, definitely a great deal. My fiancee enjoyed the garage parking. Two small complaints: 1) Their reservation website is horrible and 2) it could be difficult to find someone at the front desk in the evening. But it's a comfortable and beautiful new hotel.

My boyfriend and I are both snowboarders and loved everything about the Tamarack Club and Ellicottville.

First, Holiday Valley: We could not believe the convenience of the resort to the slopes, which were well groomed, especially considering the two feet of lake effect snow that came down while we were there. We were pleasantly surprised by the number and variety of trails, especially having many experiences with typical East coast ski resorts that were not nearly has impressive. We loved the various resting places around the mountain trails including warming huts, fire pits, and even a couple of different places to stop and have lunch or a snack, a warm drink or, if you're like us, a nice frosty beer. Then, at the end of the day, there was nothing better than being able to drop off our gear and go straight to the hotel room, where after a quick turnaround into bathing suits, we walked 15 feet outside and jumped in the hot tub to unwind. There is nothing more relaxing then being toasty and warm in an outdoor hot tub while snow is whirling above your head and in a view of the mountain in the distance.

Now, Ellicottville: A quaint town with several block of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as a conveniently located supermarket. The Gin Mill is an excellent place for all-you-can-eat spaghetti and meatballs on Monday nights- - but get there early. The local microbrew Ellicottville Blueberry Beer is a must have at the Gin Mill or anywhere.

Finally: There is truly something for everyone who needs a relaxing weekend (or week) away in this winter hot spot. If you do not ski, relax and enjoy a book in front of the fireplace in your room, work out in the hotel gym, enjoy the indoor or outdoor heated pool and warm up in the sauna. However, as snowboard enthusiasts, we highly recommend that you try it. Lessons are available on site.

On our recent trip to Holiday Valley we stayed at the Tamarack Club at it was truly amazing! The resort was first class and the staff was great. There is nothing better than walking out of you room onto the slopes. When we were done for the day, we easily checked our skis (in the clubs ski check) and were soon in the two slope side outdoor hot tubs/pool. The tubs were a little small, but we never had any trouble finding a spot- a perfect day to end a hard day on the slopes.

John Harvard’s Brewery is inside the Tamarack Club and has great food and great drinks (24 drafts on tap). I have stayed at other resorts in the area such as the Inn at Holiday Valley and the Wingate Inn and for the money; I would pick Tamarack every time.

They are in the process of building two additional outdoor pools (I am told they will be open by summer) which I am looking forward to trying out this golf season.

My wife and I stayed at the Tamarack Club in Ellicottville over the weekend of January 22nd. We stayed in one of the Studio rooms and found it to be all we could ask for. Besides having a full kitchen and a balcony, it had a FIREPLACE!! The hotel also has a really nice indoor-outdoor pool and two hot tubs (outdoor). They have a small fitness room and a sauna as well. We didn’t use the sauna, but we did get a good work out in and we used the hot tub a lot.

Check in was smooth and only took a few minutes. We were told that there was underground parking, but since the valet took our car, we didn’t use it. We did take advantage of the Ski Check, and it worked out great. A bell hop took our skis and we picked them up right next to the ski out door on the second floor.

The room was clean and, as expected, brand new. We were on the valley side of the hotel and couldn’t see the slopes, but the view was still fantastic. The hotel as a whole was very clean and, as I said, brand new. The staff was very friendly and helpful. In fact, even the other guests were friendly.

Holiday Mountain itself was good as always. We have been skiing here for a few years and always have a good time. I would recommend both the Tamarack Club and Holiday Valley.

We stayed here the Friday night of the Martin Luther King long weekend on Jan. 15. We paid over 300 for the night. Yes, it's convenient, but at a cost. Everything was really clean and new, well because the place was new. The ribbon cutting ceremony I understand it was 4 days prior. They have a small exercise room, small (enough for only a few people) indoor pool, an outdoor pool (can accomodate ~15 people) and 2 small hot tubs. The hot tubs were occupied most of the time and same with the pool. My one gripe is the change rooms at the pool were tiny, there was only 1 bathroom (1 shower and 1 toilet) plus some small lockers, the change room could probably only hold 2-3 people at a time.

The lady that checked us in on Fri. night was really helpful and friendly, she gave us an extra key so we could use the showers/hot tub on Sat afternoon, even though we checked were suppose to have checked out by that time.

You can buy lift tickets at the front desk at a discount, an all day pass good until 4pm was only 42 bux (vs 55 normally) and the all day all night pass was 51 (vs 58), although the lady at front desk the next morning didn't want to give us the $42 deal until I pushed for it.

We got a "Deluxe" room but the room was very small, probably about 150 sq ft. It had a fridge and a microwave and a small TV, but that was it. The bed was suppose to be Queen but it was one of those "California" queen beds, so it was really the size of an oversized double...

They have underground parking, but it was very small, we did find a spot on the Fri night, but by Sat., it was packed, and I don't know where anyone else would park. My suggestion is to try to find parking in here as soon as you arrive and just leave your car in here.

They have a ski check which was convenient so we didn't have to carry our skis into our rooms or bang into people trying to lug their skis around the hallways.

Our 300 did not include breakfast, but a short walk to the cafe/chalet there was 3.99 daily breakfast which included a large portion of home fries, bread, scrambled eggs and sausage.

Overall, the place was nice, although smaller than what I expected. The cost was quite a bit on the high side. I think next time we will probably stay elsewhere and drive into Ellicotville, but the convenience cannot be beat.
