Stayed in the honeymoon suite - well worth the very small additional cost. The room was quite simply amazing, the views are incredible and the spa is a fantastic added extra. It would be nice if the hotel offered in-house dining, but they were extremely helpful in getting us a booking at a brilliant local restaurant, so certainly cannot fault...

Great lodge on the outskirts of wilderness. Location directly at Island lake with a great view over the lake. The German management couple was very friendly and helpful with everything. We enjoyed our stay (although it was only for 1 day) and we would have loved to stay longer.
