“Luxury in the Mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

We went for a wedding last weekend and had a great time. Spectacular setting nestled in the mountains right on crystal clear lake. The staff were great, food excellent and also some free canoes/kayaks/peddleboats for a relaxing drift on the lake. Rooms were well appointed and very comfortable though I found they were a little bit hot and even stuffy overnight. We took a floatplane up to Spruce Lake for an epic 30km mountain bike ride...highlight of my summer.

Awesome giant circular hot-tub with lake and mountain view.. Would love to come up in the winter for skiing.

Room Tip: lake view.

The road access to Tyax may leave a bit of a dusty taste but its well worth it.Best approach is through Lilleoet especially with a car, but with a 4x4/ SUV then over the 'Hurley' is an interesting approach but the unmade road contains boulders!
All worth it when you see the impressive Lodge, a room overlooking the lake makes it all worth while. Staff very helpful and pleasant, rooms large with very deep matresses. Resturant provides varied menu, food good - well priced. Breakfasts good especially liked the omelette.
Hotel provides canoes, pedalloes and lifejackets for use of guests and an outdoor hot tub,seaplane trips can be had from the lakeside infront of the Hotel. Also available is a lakeside Interpretive Walk to a Beaver Lodge at the end of the lake.
Draught Ales available in bar with outdoor balcony seating and what a view!

Room Tip: Ask for Lake view room

We spent two nights at the resort and found the location to be amazing. The room on ground level was very nice and the service was very good. There are lots of activities for the family, especially the canoes and pedal boats on the lake, the kids loved them. The food was very good and overall the vacation was relaxing.

Room Tip: The road to the resort was scary at points, please note that it does have logging trucks traveling i...

after reading other reviews we expected mediocre service and expensive food - which is weird because the service was exceptional as was the food- each employee treated us like honoured guests and each meal we had at the restaurant was wonderful- we took advantage of the float planes for access to mountain biking trails as well as went on a trail ride- we were there on Labour Day weekend which turned out to be their busiest ever so resort was full- only complaint was that a few of the other guests were up late and a bit noisy in the halls- nothing that a pair of ear plugs could not deal with though- as far as the access roads the recommended route from Pemberton is a rough road best done with a 4 x 4 and not that much shorter- consider instead the route through Lillooet- takes about an hour longer but scenery great and very few gravel sections

Room Tip: there is a suite with king bed + 2 singles for families

Last month my partner and I stayed at Tyax for two nights. When we arrived we were greeted by an lovely and helpful young lady at the desk. The room was nice, the weather was decent however it was overcast one of the days so we decided to stick around the lodge. We very much enjoyed the spa, it was relaxing and the spa staff were very friendly giving us a tour upon arrival. We especially enjoyed sitting in the hot tub with such an amazing view. It was when we were finished we decided to head to the restaurant which is where the problems lie. We loved the food, hated the service. It took several minutes for us to get any service at all even though there were only two other tables sat in the restaurant. We strangely had the General Manager serving us- maybe due to being understaffed? He came up to us and asked "what you like". We seem to be more of an inconvenience than anything else. As he came up to the table we found him to be very rude. When asking for clarification on some of the menu items we were cut off several times throughout the conversation with the unhelpful response of we would enjoy everything on the menu, we found him to be very condescending. We also witnessed him shouting at the bar staff which definitely put a damper on the atmosphere. However the next night we had a different server who was lovely although we did notice that there was no music playing which we found rather strange for a restaurant. Overall we enjoyed the facilities and had a good experience minus our encounter with the manager on duty.

Have been vacationing in the Goldbridge area for years and make a trip to tyax at least once a year. It's under new management which seems to be working as the rooms have been renovated and the food is much better. The area is unreal and the lodge is something to see. Would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Make sure you have good tires and 4x4 to travel over the Hurley road from Pemberton. Route 40 is a l...

We drove up to Tyax from Ladner and took as many of the backroads (Hurley Pass included) as we could. A bit hairy at times! This is a four x four SUV dream trip! The prize at the end is worth it!

The resort was friendly and clean. Our room opened out to the lake on the ground floor and we couldn't ask for a better spot! Sunset and breakfast with spectacular views with incredible peacefulness. This is a great location for rest & relaxation. Canoeing, hiking, cycling, horseback riding. There are also campsites on the grounds for those looking to "rough it" a bit - with amenities close by.

We stayed for 2 nights. I would describe the service laid back but attentive and have no complaints. All of our meals were absolutely delicious and I can say I am a bit of a foodie with a fussy palate. It was a pleasure to sit on the deck with a glass of wine and hear almost nothing.

My only regret was that we were unable to take the plane up to the glacier as it was having mechanical problems. Another time. You just can't beat it for BC wilderness with a bit of refinement.

Room Tip: Of course you should ask to be on lakeside. We liked being on the ground floor and sitting on the la...
