6/10 Good

It’s old but I sensed that the hotel tries to supplement it. Amenities were okay and clean but considering its price I’m not sure whether it’s enough. I don’t remember any particularly kind or hospitable staff. The place for breakfast was dirty with bread crumbles and the like. Menu was very limited and didn’t filled up fast enough. AND there was no tongs for bread and saucers for tongs and spoons at the buffet table (I absolutely hated using any utencils placed on some cloth or wood things). Lastly I booked for dinner at the restaurant but gave me an uncomfortable table even though the restaurant was mostly empty. I asked another table but still not a good seat.

The room was nice and had a balcony. I ate at the resturaunt and the bison steak was great. The breakfast the next morning was fantastic too. I didn't expect it to be as great as it was. If I go back to Lake Louise I'll be staying there again.

Deer Lodge was a great find in Banff National Park. Peaceful and comfortable accommodation close to but away from the crowds of people at the Fairmont and Lake Louise. Great restaurant and staff. Would definitely stay again.

A very charming old hotel. It was very comfortable and an easy walk to the Lake Agnes Trail. Great breakfast. A little quirky in the room but loved the charm.
