We stayed overnight during a road trip. The room was very comfortable and the setting is beautiful. The trip up the gondola and the views from the top are breathtaking. A few more meal options would be nice, but was okay for a night stay. We will definitely be back.

We loved our stay here, however we arrived to our room only to find that it hadn't been cleaned properly, beds weren't made etc. We spoke to reception who then moved us into a room that was available and cleaned. This room was much nicer with everything you would need for one night or seven. We were only there for...

We stayed in a king guest room. The room has a mini fridge, coffee maker, microwave, small sink and a few dishes and cutlery, very handy. The views are beautiful. The gondola ride and subsequent hike at the top was one of the best. The resort is small with limited food options, which worked out just fine. We would like...

We stayed here for one night on a road trip through Alberta & BC. When we arrived there was nobody at the reception desk and no sign, turns out you have to go to the Glacier Lodge to check in (I've read this in multiple reviews, GET A SIGN ALREADY!) Both key cards they gave us didn't work to open...

My Husband and I recently returned from a 2 week road trip through BC. We chose to do a quick jaunt out of the city after work and stay in Golden for our first night. We chose The Palliser Lodge as it was on a "resort" and we wanted a comfortable first night stay and to enjoy some scenery on...

First time we stayed at the resort. The check in is at the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort Lodge where they give you the door code and the parkade cards. The staff was very friendly and also printed us some maps we needed later on. We were upgraded from a one-bedroom suite to a two-bedroom suite for no additional charge. The...

We drove to the lodge where our gps brought us. No sign on the outside of the building. Went inside, again no indication of name of the lodge. No staff or guests around. Went to a nearby "pub". Waitress said she never heard of the Palliser, but let me use her phone to call. I told the person on the...

Good Day Heidi5723, Thank you for your review of the Palliser Lodge, I do apologize about the interactions with our Guest Services Team during check in. In no way is this our normal standard and I have already addressed this with the front line management team. We do run one central check in location at Glacier Lodge which is communicated...

The Palliser is very nice and comfortable, friendly staff as well. There is no front desk in the actual lodge though, you have to check-in at the Kicking Horse resort lodge and then drive over. Only a 7 minute walk to the gondola. Beautiful setting.

We had a great weekend stay in the Palliser Lodge. The room was very neat and the kitchen had everything we needed to be able to enjoy breakfast in our room on the balcony. The Adventure Pass is well worth the cost and the visit to see "Boo" the grizzly bear was a highlight of our trip. Ensure you go...
