“Skier's Delight”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

Wonderful change of pace. After a hard day skiing and the usual grab and go food, what a delightful surprise. Did not stay in B&B but had two dinners in their dining room. Chef's 3 course with a glass of wine, reasonably priced and delicious - different every night - boneless chicken leg and risotto, steak with small roasted potatoes and veggies, creme brule, homemade apple pie. Choice of environment - main large room rustic with warming fire and great for families and larger groups, smaller floor to ceiling window room with more romantic lighting and intimate dining. Family owned and operated by welcoming couple and their enchanting daughter. A must while at Panorama.

The owner/hosts and staff have captured the spirit of these mountains and offer it to their guests in a wonderful, engaging and special way. Wow. The sense of place and authenticity is wonderful - it complements the mountain resort and experience without overpowering it. As wonderful as the food and hospitality is, you still feel like you've become a part of the great community at Panorama. We'll be going back soon.

I took my wife and 4yr old daughter to this B&B on a whim, and I have absolutely no regrets. We arrived later Friday night, and stayed until Sunday. Phil & Clare did a great job of making us feel more than at home. Our daughter took great delight in Phil with pirate costume, and told us in great details that she really liked that "Silly Mr Phil".

The rooms were a nice size, and the decor was gorgeous. Having a private bathroom off our room was a very nice feature. Water pressure and temperature were also great. No dribbling showers here. There is a very nice guest sitting room outfitted with some nice toys for the kids, and you can relax and sip on some wine while enjoying the scenery, or watching some TV and chatting.

The breakfast in the morning was far more than I expected, and my 4 year old daughter is now spoiled by the scrambled eggs. "They're way better than yours Daddy!" There was some gourmet bread, and the usual cereals available as well. We chose to stay for dinner after reading some reviews, and it was excellent. We had an wonderful bottle of red wine recommended by Clare. My wife had the beef tenderloin and I had the Seafood Hot Pot, and we both agreed it was some of the best food we'd ever tasted. Portion sizes were generous, and the quality was far above par. The chef has real talent.

The stay included access to the facilities at Panorama, and we took advantage of that as well by spending the afternoon swimming and playing with our daughter. Its a short hop to the Hot Springs at both Fairmont and Radium, and there's a ton of activities available in the area to keep you occupied on your stay.

If I had 3 thumbs, I would give it 3 thumbs up.

Room Tip: Reserve in advance!

We chose to stay at Earl Grey Lodge and Panorama for the first time this year. We had planned 3 weeks skiing, a wedding and honeymoon all-in-one, together with our 3 year old. We were sure we wouldn't find somewhere that ticked all the boxes, but Earl Grey did that and more...

We spoke to Phil prior to confirming our booking. He answered all our questions about suitability both of the resort and of the lodge itself for our mammoth family trip. Not only that, he went way beyond in terms of gathering details on childcare, skischool and also putting us in touch with a wedding commissioner (all of which worked out perfectly - Panorama certainly does great customer service with a smile). From arrival and every single day, Phil & Clare couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.

The lodge is beautifully maintained, elegant and clean. The breakfast area views are lovely and the entrance hall and covered porch with heated boot lockers provide excellent skiing facilities. The guest kitchen and lounge also provide fantastic facilities for guests in providing chillout areas away from the bar upstairs. We spent many a lovely evening relaxing in the lounge with wine watching the falling snow.

I also have to recommend the restaurant extremely highly. Over 3 weeks, we tried out most restaurants in Panorama and Invermere, the local town in the valley. Early Grey is the best of the lot by far for food quality.

We have fallen in love with Panorama as a family resort and a large part of that is down to Phil, Clare, their family and the staff at EGL. We will definitely be back, hopefully for 2012/13 season.

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast. The beds are comfortable and the food is delicious. The owners Phil and Claire are welcoming and helpful. They have a wonderful little patio for guests to enjoy the fresh air and the company of other guests. I would recommend this place highly.

This was our 2nd stay at Earl Grey Lodge, we are almost afraid to "rave" about it for fear of not being able to get in. We rode up on our motorcycle with friends who have never stayed in a bed & breakfast. They loved it! The princess on the back of my bike wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Invemere area. The food, beds, view, well...frankly everything is top notch. Flat out...this place rocks...in a good way...Women with Vision Opticians, Edmonton

Don't be distracted by the fact that theEarl Grey is only 1st out of 2, it would still be top if there were 30 others. 
We stayed for three nights in February and ate in the restaurant on two. If you are  used to European chalet style accomadation the you'll love the Earl Grey, they have distilled all the best bits to create a top quality experience. The rooms are very comfortable with fine linens and very comfy beds. There is an excellent guest lounge and kitchen. The restaurant is superb, we were lucky enough to  be there on a fine dining evening and it was a truly memorable experience..... the meal was outstanding!
What made our stay memorable above all was the warm and friendly welcome from the owners Phil and Claire, they were perfect hosts. 
To top the above Panorama is a hidden gem of resort often overlooked in favour of resorts nearer Banff, but for no good reason. Panorama has terrain for every ability it was our favourite resort of the five we visited. 
We liked it here!!
