“Excellent Location, Good Value and Good Facilities”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

2 weeks skiing trip to Sun Peaks. The hotel is made up of privately owned units, some for residence and others leased as holiday apartments through various accommodation companies. We booked through Bear Country and found the process very good.

We stayed in room 202 which was very good. The rooms are clean and well set-up. The rooms are not serviced, but linen and towel service is available every other day, this may not suit everybody but we were happy with the arrangement. If you want full hotel service, look elsewhere on the mountain. The room decot is not the most modern but everyything functions.

The location is great, true ski-in/ski-out and very good is you have a little one as it is close to village platter so when they get tired it is not far away.

Also, unlike other apartment accomodation, it has a full kitchen with a oven, some other apartments only have a stove. While we do eat out a couple of nights each week, we generally cook our own meals and an oven is so handy.

The only down-side to the room was that it was facing the road (Mt Morrisey) and early in the morning the snow clearing trucks could be heard.

We would recommend these apartments for their great location and value.

Room Tip: Choose MT TODD facing if possible.

Hotel is in a good location however Unit 105 needs work.
Fridge makes a strange bang every time it shuts down, Kitchen is not well equipped: not enough cups, cutlery and cooking trays and pots and pans, no mugs etc. Oven was dirty. Dishwasher does not clean the dishes.

Vertical blinds for the patio are damaged. Closet door was broken . Dirty walls, no remote for dvd player. no wireless internet. No dresser in the bedroom and had to put clothes on the floor. Cannot have TV/ Internet and DVD plugged in at the same time as there are not enough plugs.

Bear country(property manager) was very inflexible in dealing with payment. They did not want to split the bill without incurring additional costs.

Think twice before renting this unit it is dated and needs work.

For a nicer hotel go to Cahilty Hotel across the street. Much nicer hotel like night and day.

The location of these apartments is fantastic: the last property on the main “pedestrian-street”. True ski in/out it takes 4 minutes to slowly ski down to the chair lifts in the morning (past all of the shops, cafes and restaurants). At night time the entire village is within a 10-minute walk: most of which is under cover. The supermarket is only a 3 minute walk.

We had a two bedroom apartment and it was a good size and the kitchen had all of the facilities you would require. The quality is slightly ‘basic’ and slightly worn, but still good. The pool in the complex is smallish (would seat 10 comfortably) and was a lovely heat. The two times we used it, no one else was in it. Heating in the apartment was good although the gas fireplace takes a while to warm up.

Staff of the complex are excellent to deal with and very flexible (although surprisingly there is no bag storage). The TV had approx 40 channels plus there was free DVD hire. We were also lent locks to secure our skis in the ski room.

This was the first time we've stayed in the actual village. There aren't enough cross country trails at Sun Peaks to keep us there for more than a day or two, so the thee night minimum of most rentals don't work for us. We were able to stay in unit 220 at the Fireside for just two nights (rental through Top of the Mountain Accommodations). It was clean, comfortable and had the best equipped kitchen I've seen in a vacation rental in a while. the king sized bed was very comfy and the bathroom has a nice, deep soaker tub, This unit was considerably less expensive than others in the building. It's quite small, but very cozy. Best for couples, I think. And there's no private hot tub, which isn't an issue for us, but there is one in the building for general use. Perfect location right in the village, and extremely convenient to the cross country trailhead - a 3 minute walk. Our two nights cost us less than a hotel room alone would have at most other places in the village.

We (my husband and I) spent 4 days at #421 at the Fireside and found a much improved resort and hotel. Dinner at Powder Hounds was excellent, the shops and cafes in the Village were little gems. The September weather just perfect but the lift closed the day before we arrived, too bad since we wanted to go hiking "up there". For a quiet spot to relax between the golfing season and the skiing/winter sports season Sun Peaks is the place to come and the Fireside Lodge is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: 421 and 321 nice uninterrupted view of the slopes, great balcony for relaxing.
