Tucked into a beautiful valley in Banff National Park, this resort set against a postcard-perfect backdrop of craggy mountain peaks comprises a historical chalet and a batch of red-roof log cabins beside the Pipestone River. Décor includes pine furniture and a pile of logs to keep the wood-burning fireplace crackling all night long. The hotel’s Temple Mountain spa is a true sanctuary, while the on-site, award-winning restaurant pairs fresh produce and local game with 25,500 bottles and more than 2,200 labels from one of Canada’s largest wine cellars.
In the Area
This stretch of the Canadian Rockies is known for superior powder, and three top-notch resorts are located within Banff National Park: Mt. Norquay, Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village. Between the three resorts there’s almost 8,000 acres of skiable terrain and mountain peaks that are so epic the United Nations has declared the area a World Heritage site. Best of all, this northern latitude rocks one of the longest ski seasons in North America, from mid-November until late May. Come summer, the resort puts you within striking distance of a handful of great golf courses, including Stewart Creek Golf & Country Club, Silvertip Golf Resort, Canmore Golf and Curling Club and Banff Springs Golf Club.
How to Get There
Everything about this property is exceptional. The high point is the restaurant with great service, delicious food and a wide selection. Our room was large and very comfortable with a rock fireplace. Bathing products were high-end. The owner was on site and making sure all your needs are taken care of promptly and professionally. Book your vacation here. You will not regret it.
Cannot imagine an amenity not provided in this world-class hotel. Rooms and beds extremely comfortable. We had a fireplace that they cleaned and re-stocked daily. AM coffee stations on each floor. Breakfast room inviting, with world-wide staff eager to be of assistance. Delicious choices presented in a quiet environment. On-site pub for casual dining was fun and relaxed. Met several guests that have visited regularly for years, since they cannot find a nicer hotel. I can understand their returning.
My wife and I stayed at the Post Hotel in Lake Louise. As soon as we arrived, we were treated like royalty, a feeling that never left us during our entire stay. Our room was very comfortable and the bathroom was luxurious. Chocolates were left on the bed every night! The Post offers excellent fare served by an attentive and knowledgeable staff. On our first day, we had the Swiss fondue as the main course and chocolate fondue as dessert. To die for! ALL our other meals (including breakfasts) were just as delicious. In our opinion, the Post's cuisine (and wine list) is unrivaled in Lake Louise. All in all, a truly lovely stay and a definite place to return to.
