Thank You - Whistler Peak Lodge family holiday

Rated 5 out of 5
September 17, 2018

Just quick note to say Whistler Peak Lodge was great. Clean, not particularly noisy (It’s a busy party resort after all) and very well located. It is obviously 3* accomodation, I guess built in the 90’s but our room bathroom had been refurbed since then. The general decor was a little tired outside the room, the lifts a bit old, but they had touch card access to doors and lifts, and a spa which was great.
They gave us early access to the room and were very helpful.
We had a great time, decent snow given the late date and everything, from flights to resort connections ran to plan. Great job to your team, thanks. (I’m still battling the bank about my Visa rip off, which I think I’ll lose, but I’m a bit wiser on that score now).
We’d use you guys again and we’d definately go to Whistler again.
Thanks for your help
