I have recently returned from a wonderful two week trip to the Canadian Rockies with my husband and two adult daughters. We spent 3 nights at Paradise Lodge and were so delighted with our choice. We loved it! First of all, in my opinion, it has probably the best location in Lake Louise, situated on the road which leads from the village to the Lake itself and almost opposite the road up to Moraine Lake. Secondly, the accommodation itself is so welcoming and attractive, made up of a collection traditional log cabins and lodges in a woodland setting. Much nicer, in my opinion, than the world famous concrete monstrosity situated on the lake shore! Finally, there are so many lovely touches provided by the management: all day complimentary coffee in reception; complimentary porridge and muesli bars along with the tea and coffee in your accommodation and a bbq area which is set up and cleared away for you when you have finished eating. The only negative is its position right next to the unavoidably busy road up to the lake. But this is a small price to pay. All in all, highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin away from the road

Great service ,lovely cabins ,great views I highly recommend it. Lake Louie’s hotel is very expensive and the parking is terrible there. This Lodge is about a mile from Lake Louise and give you a sticker that get you up and down the road. We stayed in the cabin is the back which is great views and is quiet.

We had two nights in a Standard Fairview Suite. We picked Paradise Lodge because of it's location, and it certainly proved worthwhile. We got up at 6am and were at Moraine Lake 15 minutes later, ahead of the crowds. We then drove up to Lake Louise and were still early enough (7.30am) to have no trouble getting a park. When you read the horror stories about people having to wait hours for the shuttle we thought the significant outlay (CAN$413/night) worthwhile.

However, at the price they are asking the facilities are fairly basic. The cutlery (only four of everything) is the next step up from plastic. The internet is slow. We knew about the proximity to the road and it didn't really bother us, as the bedroom was at the back (you need to keep the curtain closed for privacy as it looks out onto the shared corridor). Fortunately there is a small screen which allows the loungeroom window to be open, as it would otherwise get quite stuffy in summer. We didn't sit out on the balcony as there were too many mosquitoes about. We were glad we hadn't opted for one of the cabins, which looked to be situated in the middle of the parking lot.

Overall we were happy with our stay. With the place being booked solid months in advance, and only open for part of the year, you can understand why the owners are not fussed about trying harder.

This place truly is paradise. I stayed in a Cooper Cabin. There’s a deck on the back which looks out on to the mountains and the forest. I spent plenty of time reading, drinking wine and staring off into the landscape. The first night, I walked to Lake Louise. You do have to walk alongside the road for a bit but then can connect to the Great Divide Trail across the road from the overflow parking lot. I think it took about 20 minutes to walk. The next morning, it was easy enough to drive down the road to park and then do the Lake Agnes trail to the Teahouse. Tons of people do that trail so get there early. I got there at 8:30am, which was before the major crowds arrived. There was also a grizzly bear and her cubs at the start of the trail. Note there is a stairway a bit down the lake that allows you to access the trail if the trailhead is closed for bears.
You have to drive to the village for meals as there are no restaurants on the property although they do offer coffee, oatmeal and granola bars in your room for breakfast.

We stayed in a Wilson cabin for a few nights this June and loved it. Very cute room with fireplace (gas) and small kitchen (no stove).
The cabins are right by the road which leads to Lake Louise, therefore a lot of traffic but we didn’t mind hearing the cars a little bit and just used earplugs. We wanted to be near the lake to be able to walk there from the hotel (15-20min walk > bring bearspray, we had a grizzly in the area while we were there).
They claim to have very clean rooms and very clean it was indeed.
The heating works through the fireplace (meaning the fire is on 24/7 if needed) and we were never cold, even though only 6 Celcius outside one night. I don’t know for colder months.
They provide coffee, tea, oatmeal and bars in the room and fill those every day. So a little snack for breakfast. You can buy some more things at the reception but they don‘t have a restaurant. There is a little supermarket with everything you need in Lake Louise Village.
Parking was right next to the cabin (they have different room types so I don‘t know for other rooms).

Two things they should really rethink:
- There are no phones in the room and they also won‘t let you use their phone for a local call.
- They only provide one wifi code per person and that code only works on one device.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We would like to clarify that we absolutely allow guests to use the phone in the office for local calls. We are more than happy to make dinner reservations or book day trips, such as guided hikes or white water rafting for all guests.
