Peaceful getaway

Calgary, Canada

This resort is a treat for everyone. The castle is beautiful and I was lucky enough to be there for a weekend when it snowed. Friday view was green, Sunday, a winter wonderland. The swimming pool and outdoor hot spring is a must. There is something very peaceful about being immersed in a hot spring with snowflakes landing on your face.

Couples anniversary getaway

Had excellent service and thoughtful touches like champagne provided to our room. Afternoon tea service was also enjoyable. The location is ideal and the views are unforgettable. The room itself was nice and comfortable with the hotel having a truly luxurious resort feel.
