Very original site with access by gondola. Service was very good and fast. Food and room quality was excellent. Luggage transport from de bottom of the hill to the hotel should be improved. Too much waiting time for our luggages to be available at the lobby of the hotel.

Loved our stay. Only downfall was a very loud group beside us but we didn't even bother complaining. Would definitely stay again, a great experience. Rooms are small but well taken care of. Views were amazing. Staff was great. Food delicious. Will definitely come back.

My wife and I stayed in one of the Assiniboine suites as a treat for Valentines Day. We always go to the best snow in the Rockies at Sunshine to ski and this is the first time we stayed at the Inn and definitely won't be our last. A very nice hotel with outstanding staff. Restaurants are very good also.

This was the third time here for our annual family & friends ski & stay weekend and it was another success. It's nice to stay on the hill & ski from your door. Great food & service at the lodge & at Trappers.

The hotel itself was quite nice, nothing over the top but it had pretty much all we needed. All of the staff were fairly helpful and tried to meet our needs as a family. We were 4 adults and 2 children. The rooms were not very big but cozy. 2 things I wish the rooms had were laundry and a...

Fabulous location with world class facility on top of a mountain. Great service and great value. Awesome to ski right from your front door. Great for families or go alone you won't be disappointed. Get more skiing in and park right at the gondola.

Our extended family (13ppl) stayed at the Sunshine Lodge in Feb 2017. The hotel has improved so much from our experience in the preceding years. The rooms are thoroughly cleaned and linens are crisp and fresh. The restaurant is tidy and neat (no more food bits under the tables), clean napkins and cutlery galore! And most of all, the staff...

Once again, we spent the night at the Sunshine Inn and skied two days at the resort. The staff were all friendly and helpful and our room was very comfortable. The weather was perfect with warm and sunny days and conditions were very good after 50 cm of new snow last week. We enjoyed the huge hot tub after a...

Amazing value - beautiful setting, very convenient for skiing, unique experience all round. In particular, the service of getting luggage and equipment up and down the gondola and delivered directly to room and ski lockers is great. Restaurant has great food and friendly service, but painfully slow.

I have been going to Sunshine now for 30 years, and the food has always been sketchy. However, in the last number of years they seem to be on a constant program to increase the quality and service. I was there just last week and the food was great; flavourful, fresh, attractive, ample portions and reasonably priced. Gabby was my...
