    The food was good, the service was very slow. It wasn't as special as I thought it would be, everyone seemed rushed. Very dismayed at having to pay 10.50 CAD to park in hotel lot. I thought I was a guest.

    Scenery and atmosphere were absolutely stunning, food not so much for the price paid. I had trout which was good but portions were very small, hubby had steak frites and the steak was a bit tough, just thought for a high class restaurant, food could have been to a higher standard. Dessert was good but the pears were not ripe used on the cheesecake.

    We loved closing our holiday with a lovely dinner The atmosphere was great! My dish ,the elk ragout,however, was way too salty and was surprised to have to pay extra when asked for a second piece of bread with the mussels( at that price it should not have been charged) The waitresses all did their best but did seem to be overwhelmed at times! Still short staffed?

    The food was a disappointment. The biscuits were dry and there was no butter. The scones were good, but the amount of jam and cream you supplied was enough for about 1/2 of a scone. The cucumber sandwiches were good, but the egg salad was bland. Very expensive for what the food was.

    The service was lovely could not fault the girls who served and helped us. The room temperature was oppressive a fan system or air con would be a great addition. The tea cup system was odd. The cakes and sandwiches fair but could be a little more varied, very dry and rather bland. The opportunity to make the experience something to really enjoy or cherish has I felt been been missed. Overall I would say a little revamp could make this experience extraordinary as the view and building are amazing. Just being honest but I still managed to enjoyed it just not love it. Just written from a High/Afternoon tea lover from England’s perspective.

    I had never experienced high tea before,it was a first for me.Looking out the window was beautiful scenery and there was light back ground music playing..but the room was very hot no air-conditioning..tough drinking hot tea( of which were great choices) with sweat pouring off our faces.The food was ok overall..but the scones were very tough to eat..with jam and cream it was tolerable..would have liked choices of sandwiches.. but it seemed highly regulated of what you got..service was good considering the power was flickering on and off..

    Service was good and young staff are charming! The view is beautiful but the weeds, bare ground and random hoses were distracting. Windows were streaked and dirty, especially in the lounge. A shame the outside terrace was not available to guests for drinks/dining. Unfortunately the food is not very tasty or up to the standards expected for this hotel and price. There was a dead fly in my champagne glass when brought to the table. Limited menu selection and not well prepared… blue cheese sauce was ranch?, potatoes hard, chimichuri not fresh or tasty, salad wilted and almost non-existent, eggs cold at buffet and hardly any left, pastries hard/stale. I could go on and on! Very disappointed. Entire hotel run down and in need of tlc. Had much higher expectations and thought this restaurant would be the quality of a CP hotel, given expensive room rates and magnificent location.

    Amazingly gorgeous setting, attentive staff, but ho-hum dry scones and biscuits, heavy, clunky tea cups, only three non-caffeinated tea choices, and generally pricey for what you received.

    My husband's trout was great. I had the flank steak. Very tough and chewy. Suggest a more tender cut of steak. Orfered dessert after about 20 minute Wait. We cancelled dessert and asked for check.

    Food was good overall, $44 bison steak was not worth it. The cheaper elk pasta was a far better entree. Most disappointing thing was our table location. Instead of getting the view that you go for and pay for, we were put between two windows to stare at a wall. After we asked if we could be moved to an empty table nearby an actual window, the waitress said yes, once it was cleared off. She then disappeared for about 30minutes, in the meantime a different waitress moved a different couple to that empty table with a view. Overall very unimpressed, the experience of eating our dinner facing a wall was not worth the cost. Poor value. Better value to eat at the lakeside chophouse in the townsite.

    Laura was our server and she was so pleasant and friendly. The view were really something to see and the food was excellent. I had the chicken delux and my husband the lamb shank special. Both were great. Lots of room in parking lot. I thinks it’s a bit cheesy they charge 10:50 to park for supper.

    We booked high tea for my fathers 80th birthday. We had high hopes for a wonderful experience. While the dining room and view were wonderful, we were disappointed with some food items. The bread in the sandwiches were slightly dried out on one side and soggy on the other. The scones were the highlight, but came with one tiny jar of cream and one of jam. We had to get up to find our waitress a few times to request more. The little chocolate tart was superb….other desserts were mediocre. It was worth the experience but was underwhelming and not something that is worth the cost to do again.
