Reviewed 29 July 2012

Very nice hotel, charming, elegant and cousy. In my opinion much better than the famous Fairmont. The Fairmont is worth the visit but too crouded the hole day.
Best restaurant in the region.
Nice, clean and confortable rooms.
Agreable setting with River view.

The Post Hotel was a charming and very comfortable hotel that we stayed at while we were in Lake Louise. It is located by a river which was very full at the time and the more expensive rooms face that. We had room facing the noisier front which has a train track running very close to the property. However the Hotel is so comfortable and serviceable in terms of friendlyness and charm that it makes up for that small inconvenience. It has a Relais and Chateaux title which tells you that it is more than just a regular hotel and is quite a gastronomic delight. While we as a family only ate at the Outpost Pub we did have a lovely breakfast at the main restaurant of the hotel which was great. They also did an afternoon tea service which was very nice. The rooms were comfortable and the evening turndown service a real charm in this era of dwindling service. The pool and hot tub as well as the gym were great and I would highly recommend this hotel as a must if one wants to be away from the grandeur and the crowds of Chateau Lake Louise.

This was by far our favourite hotel in Canada during our trip. As soon as we entered the lobby it felt very cosy and welcoming and the staff certainly were welcoming. Our superior room was cosy and beautifully decorated. There are 2 comfy chairs in the room - a rarity in all hotels we have ever stayed in all over the world! The bathroom was superb, lovely fluffy towels and bathrobes, spa bath and so clean you didn't need a mirror - you could see yourself in the wall tiles! We had a balcony and we were on the railway side with the trains going past during the night. I didn't mind at all but my husband wasn't so keen. The plus to being on that side was it was the sunny side. The river was really fast and so would be quite noisy too. There is free tea and coffee in reception between 2-5pm every day and free coffee on all floors 7 -11 in the morning.
We used both restaurants. The english style pub was very informal and quite small with a good choice and good value. We waited ages for our food and had to ask many times where was it - I think they never passed on our order to the kitchen, not very good service. The main restaurant in the hotel was very nice and very formal. We had a lovely meal but feel it was overpriced and a bit too pretentious.
The cottages next to the river were so cute, they looked like gingerbread houses! The hotel is in a good position near the few shops in Lake Louise and 4 kms to the lake. We loved Lake Louise and Moraine Lake was even better as the view from the top of the rocks is breathtaking - worth the climb. didn't use pool or spa but looked lovely.

The Post Hotel reminds you of those lovely old properties where magic happens. Beautiful settings, fine dining, cozy rooms. When we were dining tonight, we got the sense that we could be in a luxury New York hotel in the 1940's. Seriously, this is a nice property. There are downsides for the critics... it's got a railroad track just beyond the hotel (although we only noticed one train during the night... and frankly, I find the sound soothing) and some rooms face the parking lot (ours did and an awning blocked us from view or we had the choice of rolling it up and seeing the mountain view). Other rooms have a river view, and what a river it is! We checked out the spa and fitness center today since it was a rainy day... and liked them both. My wife had a hot rocks massage while I worked out with the equipment, treadmills and free weights. She came back singing high praises for the massage... and she's picky.

As for the dining room, it was superb. The wine list is overpriced (and it is going to be up here in an isolated setting) and has a remarkable range of wines. The food is extraordinarily done and matches the reputation of the place that we heard from our well traveled friends. I should add that when we crossed into the park, the gate guard asked us where we were going and how long we were staying. When we told him, he rolled his eyes and said, "You might want to park your car here and walk up there, so that you can start wearing off all of the luscious food you are going to eat." He was right.

Room Tip: One side has the trains (and mountain views); the other the river. We stayed on the "train&quo...

We stayed at the Post for two nights in the Temple Cabin located by the river. It was amazing to listen to the river anytime we were sitting outside or falling asleep with that relaxing noise… The cabin was well appointed with a king size bed, fine linen, nice tile shower, fireplace, wet bar, coffee maker, etc. I enjoyed my morning coffee sitting on the balcony just a couple meters away from the river. Coffee is also available on each floor of the main building in the morning, which is great for a refill before heading out.

At arrival, great service was available for luggage handling. The same was available when we left, with fresh bottles of water for the road.

We had dinner twice at the main restaurant. For foodies, I would recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing. We enjoyed every single meal so much that we went back the second night, à la carte, which was another great dinner. I however found unfortunate that the wine is not poured in the glasses at the table so that we can see the bottle of what the sommelier proposes. A pub also offers another eating option at the hotel. However, I did not have a chance to explore that alternative.

Overall, the service was impeccable. The food was amazing. The views are spectacular.

High quality in all details, the property really deserve its ‘relais & chateaux’ designation. If you want a high quality accommodation in Lake Louise without the volume of the Fairmont, the Post is your best option. Looking forward to going back either in winter or summer!

Room Tip: A cabin by the river is the way to go :)
