We were here only one night but it was a very pleasant and comfortable night at this hotel. The room had a balcony and a nice view of Kootenay Lake. A continental breakfast in the morning was a nice way to end our stay there. We would definitely go back here for another stay.

Mid week and just before schools let out made for a very peaceful and quiet stay. We were the only guests. Very comfortable large rooms. Rooms had a television with regional stations. No phones however but most people don't use them much anyhow. Wish we had more time to stay.
