First time to PH and took an internet chance on this hotel. We’re we ever happy! Almost brand new, clean, modern, great rooms and really good in room coffee all built, managed and stocked by First Nation Tribe. The staff are wonderful and most accommodating! Food in the in the pub was also great! Highly recommended!!!

I had a great visit at Kwa'lilas hotel. It is decorated so beautifully with Aboriginal art in many forms and the decoration is consistent throughout.
