We stayed at the Lobstick over the Christmas break 2019 for a two night family ski trip. Overall we gave it 4 out of 5. Not the Ritz but quite serviceable for our needs. Price was $ 130 plus taxes which is OK, not a bargain but this is high season Location is a little far from the main part of downtown, about a 20 minute walk (1.5 km). Check-In… Read more
We stayed at the Lobstick over the Christmas break 2019 for a two night family ski trip. Overall we gave it 4 out of 5. Not the Ritz but quite serviceable for our needs. Price was $ 130 plus taxes which is OK, not a bargain but this is high season Location is a little far from the main part of downtown, about a 20 minute walk (1.5 km). Check-In took quite a while (20 minutes). They were slam dunked: maximum staff (two) on duty but were hampered by number of work stations. Service was great. No problem with leaving our bags at the hotel while we skied our last day. The lady in the breakfast buffet remembered my preference for decaf' coffee after only one morning! Halls / public spaces in the building are in good shape, no "stale hotel" smell. Our room #148 was more than adequate size for its two Queen beds. All services worked although like most hotels, there are nowhere near enough plugs in the walls. Carpet, paint etc looked like it had received some love. The bed was good, about normal for a good hotel. Bathroom was very good. Obviously a complete renovation, and recently done. No dust bunnies noted. Noise wasn't the concern for us it was for other reviewers. Especially considering the very full state of the hotel. There is no big loud rockin' bar. Internet (Shaw Open) worked quite well. Coffee maker thankfully was stocked with decaf'. Fridge was quiet. Breakfast was really good. They have two buffet options, $14 for "cold" and $17.25 "hot". "Cold" is good with nice fresh porridge in addition to the usual dry cereals; however little protein (yoghurt but no cold meats, hard boiled eggs etc) One issue was the hot tubs in the pool area. There are two, one in and one outside, small and probably adequate sized 99% of the time, but too full to get in our first night. Also the aerated jets in the indoor pool were kaput. Really could have used that extra massage effect after a day skiing! Room tips: Note that floor #1 at the Lobstick is actually a half basement. Rooms in the hall with the rooms numbered in the 100-teens are noisier: that is the main route to the pool. Read less

We had 2 rooms booked as we are traveling with our 3 children from Australia. The kettle was filthy when we went to use it. The tv in the bedroom had no channels set on it and the staff didn’t bother to fix it even though we asked several times. The toilet blocked up and it took the staff 9 hours to clear it, after asking twice. The rooms were on… Read more
We had 2 rooms booked as we are traveling with our 3 children from Australia. The kettle was filthy when we went to use it. The tv in the bedroom had no channels set on it and the staff didn’t bother to fix it even though we asked several times. The toilet blocked up and it took the staff 9 hours to clear it, after asking twice. The rooms were on level 1, with children in the room above us running and jumping until 11pm, we did ask staff to do something but the running continued. Our door stuck and was difficult to get open. The rooms were old and very dated. When we were checking in the rooms were not ready, so I had to line up 3x until they were finally ready after 5pm. I asked to speak to the manager and Fabian said he (Mr Woo) would contact me the next day, that was 2 days ago and we are still waiting ! Our rooms were booked through a travel company in Australia and I will be providing them with advice to never book here again. Unfortunately our rooms have been prepaid or we would be moving. We have been in Canada for 2 weeks traveling and these are the worst rooms and service to date. Very disappointing. Read less

The hotel was close to downtown and easy to walk to. The free breakfast was good and they had someone to cook your omelets They also offered a nice whirlpool and sauna. The staff was nice and very helpful .
