Sunshine Mountain Lodge
Dirty transfer
The hotel was great, the big problem is that there is a transfer from the car park to the hotel of about 20 minutes up a very bumpy road, as much as a pain that is was, it is made considerably worse by the fact that the vehicles used to transfer you are old a very dirty vans. Ours not only rattled like it was about to fall apart but one of the windows was cracked and steadly got worse the whole time we are there. All they had to do was give the van a clean

It was amazing. One of the best customer service we have had. They couldn't be any mor accommodating. Only request it would be 5 stars if it had a small fridge and microwave. You are in the middle of nowhere.

Only ski-in ski-out in Banff
The convenience can’t be beat for skiers and snowboarders. Note that going into town is about an hour trip by gondola and bus, and the gondola doesn’t always run past 6pm. So lucky you, you take a hot tub, have a drink by the fire, eat a gourmet meal, and sleep by the lifts.

only go for the hot pool
While I am quite sure I'll stay there again, there were a few hiccups. No heat in my room. Drinks and meals were slow to be served. Two raw burgers served with cold fries. But the hot pool was lovely and the room very comfortable. My advice, if you like truly good food, is to lower your expectations. We had four meals in the dining room and one of them was good. I see from other reviews that most people seem to like the food. Perhaps we had bad luck. Maybe our expectations were too high. My guess is that if you like food from chain restaurants like Earl's, you'll find the food just fine.
