“Oct 23rd one night stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

We, too stayed here as part of the Grizzly Bear Ranch deal. I was very pleasantly surprised by the room. It was very nice with a wonderful lake view. Also very quiet. We hope to go back next year and we would stay for more than one night here.

Room Tip: Lake view for sure

We stayed here as part of the package with Grizzly Bear Ranch. The staff were polite and helpful throughout our stay and provision can be made to store luggage if, like us, you are off adventuring for a few days. Kaslo is a wonderful small town in the middle of some of the best scenery in eastern BC, but is little known to the international tourist as it is ‘off the beaten track’ – this should not put people off as access is very easy.

The room came as a real surprise, second floor lake view (rear of hotel) – that is an understatement of reality, the rooms are cleaner, larger and better equipped than many mid to high range hotel chains offer with very comfortable beds guaranteeing a good nights sleep. If the almost picture window isn’t enough for you to while away time looking at the lake and mountains the room also has a balcony and furniture to sit out and dream! If you have to keep in touch with the outside world the hotel complimentary wireless worked faultlessly and if you don’t have your own ‘wireless device’ there is a guest use computer near the elevator.

We ate in the restaurant and the food was good and well presented, although the best desserts can run out on the night very quickly! It is a pity however that as the hotel is so close to the best kept wine secret (BC wines are extremely good) the wine list consisted of the usual international offerings rather than local products – this was made up for to a degree by some very nice local beers. It is a pity that breakfast isn’t available at the hotel (this would add value) but there are good cafes within a very short distance that provide this service.

As we didn’t pay directly it is hard to say much about value for money (we do not know the price for the room we had), it does seem to be priced quite high, but the rooms (of which there are very few for a building of this size), service and location do work in its favour. We would certainly choose to stay here again. 

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel offer spectacular views, but if you are constrained by budget all roo...

Stayed in the hotel prior to visiting the Grizzly bear ranch as part of the deal. The room was spacious and clean with a great view over Kootenay Lake. Ate in the restaurant and enjoyed a perfectly cooked steak. Staff helpful and service excellent. Would use again if in the region.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake

Although I didn't stay as a guest at the hotel, I enjoyed a couple of great meals in the restaurant. The decor and the view are both beautiful, the food was very good and the service was even better. I was fortunate to be served by Pat G., as I had enjoyed his hospitality a few years ago when I made a trip through the Kootenays. I even bought the T-shirt - again!

We had recently chosen Kaslo as a stop-over on our early September travels in southeastern BC. The Kaslo Hotel, as well as the Town of Kaslo itself, turned out to be truly pleasant surprises on our first time visit. We were fortunate to be given the choice of a lakeside room - what a spectacular view of Kootenay Lake! A real treat was a visit to the nearby Ainsworth Hot Springs, followed by good food and local beers in the Hotel pub. Not a single complaint about our stay (with the exception of leaving my $3 knockoff baseball cap from New York City behind...). We will definitely stay here again on an upcoming re-visit of the Hills Garlic Festival in New Denver - another great surprise! Do check it out at http://www.hillsgarlicfest.ca/

Room Tip: Try and get the handicap accessible room if it is available.

We were at a garlic festival near Kaslo and decided to treat ourselves to a stay on the lake. The rooms are a little expensive until you get to your room and see the great view. The service was ok and when the rate lowered from our reserved rate, they emailed and gave us the lower rate.

The main feature here is the view of the lake. We had a nice balcony with a great view. There is a road and parking between you and the lake but you still have a wonderful view.

The room had period furniture but modernized. The bed was very comfortable and there was room for sitting and chatting.

I don't think you could get a room with this view for less anywhere.
