  • “This hotel has extremely friendly staff who are are the definition of accommodating. My wife and I threw a few curve balls at them during our stay and they batted everything out of the park.”

  • “This was the second time I have stayed here, the rooms are clean and the beds are comfy. The shower is great and all the amenities are as well. Very fair pricing and an unbeatable view. Great to stay at if you're in Fernie for a ski trip as it is 5 minutes to the hill by car.”

  • “We planned to stay here one night while we were traveling through the area, but we ended up staying two nights, because we loved it so much! The location is great (by the river and close to town and Fernie Alpine). The room was clean and with more than enough space for the two of us. Nice breakfast and very friendly staff. We would love to come back some day!”

  • “This was our second visit in this hotel and we loved it again! It's very close to the ski hill and beautifully located at the river. Breathtaking scenery with all that snow! Last time we were here it was summer and we had an amazing vacation! This time in winter was even better. Some decorative changes has been made and Wow, does it look good! And bonus: There is a lovely spa! Good beds, spacious rooms and a very friendly staff! So helpful and they made our stay once again fantastic! Thanks guys, we'll be back again!”

  • “A friend of mine and his son visiting from Australia stayed in one of the Family Suites, which was perfect. We were on a snowboarding road trip around the Kootenays, so easy access to the ski area was great. My friends son loved the waterslide (bonus) and all of us the hot tub. As British expats, we really appreciated the superb Indian restaurant. Staff and management were outstanding, too. Would love to go back there and fly-fish - right outside the hotel. Highly recommended.”

  • “A very good experience! The ski hill is very close by and the hotel catered to our every need. The room was clean, large and comfortable, the breakfast very good and make sure you try the restaurant for dinner! My wife tried the Spa and was very pleased. We will come back in the future!”
