We stay for a night so we could walk around the park and enjoy its all. Have supper after the park was closed was vary good and the food was great. The night staff will help you be comfortable and get you anything that may have bin miss.

A reproduction of the original Selkirk which burnt down in 1962, so the plaque says, and a good job has been made of it. The 20's theme is superb, however it lacks!

No TV in rooms, why? Because there was no TV in the 20's, neither was there wifi, aircon, central heating, and probably not hot running water, lame excuse!

The restaurant is average at best, but the bar atmosphere is great, so OK overall.

We arrived at the hotel coming in the back road to Fort Edmonton. It felt like we were breaking in it was such a weird feeling to be there after hours.

Most of the cars in the parking lot were gone and we just scooted past everyone and drove to the hotel via a service entrance. The staff were very very friendly and very informative. We went to dinner at the hotel restaurant then decided to walk around the Fort. I asked if we could and was told "go ahead, you have the whole place to yourselves". So we did. We took full advantage of the setting sun to walk the Fort, look in all the windows, meet the horses, see the chickens, follow the train track, and generally view the Fort as though some kind of apocalypse had occurred. It was WONDERFUL. We got back to the hotel, went to the bar and had a couple of very good import beers for very cheap.

There were so few people there and it was so quiet. We had a king sized room with ensuite. No tv, no distractions. We talked and enjoyed our time together. In the morning there was a continental breakfast which I would not recommend although the coffee was European strong and very good.

I would definitely go back again. We truly enjoyed the experience. It felt like we had left the city when we indeed had not. It was a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle. No traffic sounds and no sirens. Peace and quiet.

Room Tip: Both floors seemed quiet because of the brick build.

We booked out the park for my birthday and the management team was excellent while the event took place. However, prior to the event no one would return our calls, one person would say one thing and another person the complete opposite. we also tried to book the brunch, which they said was sold out - but it only had 20 people. Everyone at the hotel was very nice, just find everyone lazy. I do love this place, wish they had better management.

Room Tip: Great place - just be on top of them so they call you back!

I read the reviews with my kids and we had a little laugh; people were complaining about the sheets and not having TV. My kids pointed out there wasn't TV during that time period. Perhaps, management has replaced the sheets since the previous reviews but no complaints from us.

The service has been really good. Everyone is friendly, accommodating and efficient. The rooms are clean and frankly it's nice to enjoy some much needed quiet time with my family.

Another bonus is that the park admission is free with the room. I'd definitely recommend this experience to friends and family. It's something different to do and it's affordable.
