Rooms were very chic and clean. Location is also very good. The reception staff, Brogan, Robbie, Lloyd and the lovely Aussie girl too (apologies I can't quite remember her name) were exceptional and some of the finest employees in hospitality we have had the pleasure of coming across . All were very attentive and eager to help, all great assets to the hotel. Would highly recommend.
Stayed four nights at the end of our holiday in Seattle, Vancouver Island and Vancouver. Summit Lodge is a lovely, spotlessly clean, super efficient and friendly hotel. Our room overlooking the pool was quiet, and had a very comfortable bed. A small kitchen area which was great for breakfasts and I even made a meal of spaghetti Bolognese one evening without any problems.
Reception staff were very efficient, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them, even offering an umbrella, on the one morning it rained.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this boutique hotel and the resort of Whistler. Both just fabulous.
