    This is a huge hotel but service was good. We had a pleasant room with a view of the lake. It was very warm while we were there and the room didn't have air conditioning so it did feel rather stuffy i...  more »

    Service is amazing! Rooms are very well sized! All the staff working here are so warm and approachable, which makes this a very friendly hotel! The food is also really good. Got a chance to try two of the restaurants and the food was up to the mark! Would definitely come back when here again .

    Great views although many rooms have carpark views. Staff try hard but need more experience and training. Restaurant however very poor, food served cold, undercooked, despite being sent back. Service very slow. This is a hotel valued for its history and fantastic location, hardly a world class 5 star though. While there a car accident damaged the power supply, guests advised to use the surrounding forest as no bathrooms were functional

    This Fairmont Chateau is great. The rooms are very nice with a variety of sizes, and they clean the rooms daily. There is a beautiful view of the mountain range and the lake. There are many different hikes, long and short; it is perfect for outdoorsy people. The only issue is that most of the year some of the hikes are restricted because of snow and ice. There are about three restaurants that are a little pricy but good. The hotel has a gym, pool, hot tub and other amenities.

    Beautiful location. Pictures really don't do the lake justice. The hotel itself is nice. Staff is very friendly and courteous. We had to eat inside, as there were no more patio tables with umbrellas available, which means the view was somewhat obstructed. Food was very delicious.

    With only one night of staying here, my boyfriend and I were blown away by the outstanding service we received upon entry to exit. All staff members were kind and willing to help anyway they could, and our room was upgraded without us even asking! We ended up with a stunning view overlooking the lake, and were blown away by the view. Our room was clean and comfortable, and we were a big fan of the robes! We hope to find our way back to Alberta one day, and if so, we will definitely be returning to the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Thank you!
