The resort provides a beautiful view of the Kootenay lake and is right next door to the Balfour golf course. Our room was clean and always well stocked. The three staff members were exceptional in making us feel very comfortable and welcome. Very friendly and accommodating. Ginu was very helpful in getting us checked in as there was a problem...

The resort is located in the sleepy town of Balfour at the beginning or ending of a ferry trip across Kootney Lake. Your alarm clock is the call of the resident woodpecker against the warbling and chirps of the early rising bird life. You catch my drift, very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The rooms/beds are clean and comfortable and staff...

Hotel is advertised as a Lodge and Spa, with a restaurant. First, there is no "spa" - there is a hot tub, that's it. Second, there is no restaurant on site, so have to drive to eat. The rooms are nice and clean and comfortable, but a microwave would be nice. Staff is helpful and very nice. Just isn't a...

Spent three days in Feb around Valentine's Day. We were the only guests so had entire lodge to ourselves. Needless to say very quiet and peaceful. View is awesome. Staff friendly and courteous. Looking forward to returning in the spring for some golf.

I stayed at the Kootenay Lakeview Resort for one night, while making my way east. I am pretty sure I was the only guest staying at the resort when I went there (right after a big snowstorm) which was pretty cool. In fact, I had had to change my travel plans because of the storm, and the resort staff went...

Hi, Thank you for completing the survey regarding your recent stay at our property. You came at the right time. I would recommend to anyone coming out during the winter to bring some snowshoes to take advantage of the landscape we have here.
