Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with a hot tub on the balcony. The room was spacious, had everything you needed, but run down. Unfortunately, there's no A/C so it did get quite warm. One fan was broken too. The hot tub turned my dark green swimsuit to a sage colour. The balcony was quite dirty (food spilt from a previous guest). Underground parking was nice. Overall, I don't think we'd stay again, more cons than pros.

This place was fantastic. Stayed 2 nights since it was the low season. Nothing else was open on the mountain until late May, so be prepared to bring your own food, or drive 13 kms down the mountain. This place was so spacious. Lots of storage, washer and dryer, dishwasher and heated floors in the bathroom. No air-conditioning but did have a fan. Beautiful views from our balcony. Will come again next year.

Palliser Lodge, Kicking Horse: The lodge itself is away from the other buildings in the resort, and so you check in at Glacier Lodge in the main part of the resort and then drive up to Palliser. Check-in was friendly and reasonably efficient, if not very proactive. And those on the desk seemed to have little idea about the timings of the resort. When asked when the rental shop shut, we were first told that it had already shut (at 15:30). Another member of staff overheard this and said that it shut at 17:00. Actually, it shuts at 16:30. I would have thought that the questions that people most commonly ask at check-in in a small winter resort involve the opening times and locations of the lift pass office, the rental shop and the lifts. Having got key cards and gone up to Palliser Lodge, we found that the key cards would not open the ski locker. So we had to walk back down to Glacier Lodge to get those changed. Having then finally got into the ski locker, it was apparent that the locking slots on the ski racks did not take two pairs of skis as we had been told at reception, just one pair. So, that involved another trip down to Glacier Lodge to get another ski lock. For me, as a Brit, the condo-style room had the same problems that I have with pretty much all Canadian properties. The beds are too soft, and the lighting is too low. Apart from not being able to see anything, the absence of master light switches at the door and by the bed is a mystery. Instead, there is always a vast array of scattered light switches and lamps that need to be turned on/off individually, with the result that leaving the room or going to bed ends up being a long, complex mission to turn off a plethora of different switches. Oh, and there are never any USB sockets. There was no housekeeping until day 4 of your stay. Since we were only there for three nights this didn’t happen. The amenities in the bathroom were basic but sufficient, and the room had a washing machine and dryer. The rental shop in the resort is not a place I ever need to go back to. Surly staff, who had zero interest in customer service, and who shoved out knackered old equipment that had not been serviced. Excuses about being too busy were pathetic – I want what I have pre-paid for and this was mid-January, without much snow and the resort was pretty empty. I had also signed waivers online, but that whole process needed to be repeated in the shop in ink. The systems in place for collecting pre-booked ski passes were also archaic. I turned up with a spreadsheet for the journey with the booking reference for my ski pass, and my ID etc. etc. But they could not help me without the original email. Quite bizarre, since as far as I could tell the email had no more information on it than I had already given (including the booking reference at the top). We stayed at this property as part of a trip along the ‘Powder Highway’ in January 2023 (although only 50% of that name was correct at the time). The cost of this property per night was CAD $279 (1 bedroom suite). See my other reviews for our stays in the Sutton Place Hotel in Revelstoke CAD $379 (Studio Premium Suite) and Taynton Lodge in Panorama CAD $345 (Premium 1 Bedroom).

There’s enough bad reviews here that we don’t have much to add that hasn’t already been said. Dirty sheets that don’t fit the bed. Broken front entrance and a ridiculous check in. Expensive dirty rooms. Broken toilet….ugh, the list goes on. What a complete embarrassing resort. Too bad

The beginning of my stay here was a bit of a disaster, going from one room to the next without either of them being housekept. After finding the first one to be better After all, the younger maintenance guy on duty fixed the place up and we were all set. Management made it right the next day and the room itself, a generous suite was well appointed and convenient. A huge deck with a stunning view over the valley made it worth enduring. Had the potential to be an amazing stay if the housekeeping staff had decided to show up some day. Hope that side of things improves

We had a relaxing few nights stay just before the Summer Season Opening of Kicking Horse. We just missed the re-opening of the Gondola and an opportunity to visit Boo the famous Grizzly by a couple of days but the Complex was otherwise fully functioning and quiet. Bliss. Rode that Gondola in Winter a few years ago and it was so enjoyable we hope to experience it in Summer one day. Our spacious 1 Bedroom apartment was comfortable with large bedroom, bathroom, Lounge/Dining and an excellent kitchen. The scenic drive down to Golden should be about 20 minutes but the Black Bears were thick on the ground and were impossible to ignore. Respectfully. They were a highlight of our Kicking Horse visit. We’ve never seen so many Cubs. Often Three cubs with a surprisingly calm Mom. Apparently the Bears are no deterrent to Walkers and Cyclists either. An adrenalin hit. Golden has several big Grocery Stores so we bought groceries and happily ate in after busy days of sightseeing. Also a wealth of Restaurants and Fast Food Chains too. Twilight made sitting out on the wide rear deck the perfect lazy end to amazing but long days. The safe basement carpark with Elevator access to all levels was excellent too.

Stayed in 2 bed suite with a tub on balcony. Lots of safe and very comfortable. Excellent kitchen. A little tired with a few bits of damage. Also not great check in down hill at glacier. Overall good value for a ply of room but it is a ski resort so you are 15l out of Golden. There is a small store and a bar restaurant and a great gondola ride and bike trails

Great experience. Check-in was slightly cumbersome, but otherwise a great stay. Heated bathroom floor was a very nice touch 😊. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen large, and all amenities excellent. Very clean building, and very quiet at night. Loved the ski storage room, and boot-up area was very convenient.

We are currently staying at the Palliser Lodge at KickingHorse Resort and I can’t even wait to leave to write a review. We are staying in a two bedroom suite with a hot tub in room 307. I don’t usually write reviews but when you spend this much money I can’t help but stop someone else from being this disappointed. The only amazing thing about this room is the view of the mountain while sitting in the hot tub. Absolutely breathtaking. It all ends there. From the kitchen pans being unusable because they are disgusting, stained mugs, broken toaster, utensils falling apart while using them to sink drains clogged, it’s all around terrible. I’m not topically a picky person but too much grossness is enough to write a review. Badly stained couches (we fit for the two single, cleaner couches to sit), huge cracks in lamp shade, holes in blankets that smell like they haven’t been washed in months. The list goes on…Also don’t walk barefoot in this suite you’ll have black feet by the end of the day. Lots needs to be updated in this suite to reflect the price. Pictures online don’t reflect what you will encounter. Also the ice maker in the garage was out of order (fridges in suite don’t make ice), and bike storage was not available for whatever reason. For the beauty of this resort setting the rental suites should reflect the same. The prices should also reflect the quality of the room.

The quality of the hotel was very poor.  The room was not well maintained and not particularly clean.  The room was dusty, the glasses/plates etc were not clean, there was a screen door lying on the balcony floor, a missing window blind, a shower door that wouldn't close leading to water ending up on the floor, a fireplace that wouldn't turn on, Christmas lights on the balcony that were hanging down broken.  The room key cards were deactivated a couple of times during our stay which wasn't ideal considering that the reception wasn't open and we needed to go to the Glacier Lodge to have them reactivated.  There was also supposed to be a 10pm quiet time rule but there was a loud party with people playing drums and singing on the Saturday night until the early hours of the morning which kept waking our kids up and nobody did anything to enforce the quiet time rule. For the amount we paid to stay here I would have expected a similar quality to the other Bellstar hotels that we've stayed at (Solara, Grand Rockies, Royal Kelowna).  Quiet honestly we could have stayed in any number of the chain hotels in Golden for less than half the price, which also wouldn't have had a resort fee and would have been better quality and value. I will say that the staff were very friendly and a pleasure to deal with but all of the negatives that we experienced made it difficult to enjoy our stay and ruined the end of our family vacation. We were offered 40% off a future trip specifically to the two Kicking Horse Resort Bellstar hotels but there's no way I would stay there again.
