HI-Nordegg Shunda Creek Hostel: Discover David Thompson Country!

We spent an evening at this hostel in Nordegg in July 2005 when we explored David Thompson Country for a couple of days.

The hostel has dorms, a campfire pit, a BBQ, common room, libaray, a self catering kitchen and a hot tub (which wasn't working when we stayed!). There are opportunties for participating in activites nearby such as hiking trails and, in winter, Cross-country skiing.

I do recommend this hostel but it's essential to have a car to explore this part of the Rockies and not many tour groups do visit this area. There is no public transport services to Nordegg and the nearest gateway is Rocky Mountain House, which is over 100 kms away! I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to visit David Thompson Country with True North Tours in 2005.

The hostel is situated in a forest and surround by mountain scenery. It was nice to go off the beaten track in the Canadian Rockies and was refreshing to relax in the mountains in high summer without the crowds!

Tarry-a-While: Historic B&B

This historic B&B is located in a quiet street, close to the main street in Banff. The accommodation and breakfast are of a very high quality and lots of added extras are provided to make guests comfortable.
The whole house has polished wooden floors or white carpets, so guests are required to take their shoes off at the door.
It is owned by the Peter and Catharine Whyte Foundation, which operates Banff's famous Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies; and managed by Alysen (correct spelling I hope) who works really hard as a host, just as if she was the owner.

Lots of history makes this a really interesting place to stay.

Radium Springs B&B: Home comforts

This B&B is located in a quiet neighbourhood close to the main street/crossroads in Radium Hot Springs. It is not quite in walking distance of the Hot Springs unless you're felling energetic.
The accommodation is of very good quality and the owner. Margaret, produces an excellent breakfast.

We watched a number of deer grazing in the garden.

The Crossing Resort: Saskatchewan Crossing

A good place to stay on a road trip. The rooms are pleasant although a bit 'motel' like, and set out in blocks like a motel. They have a choice of places to eat as well as a well stocked shop and petrol (gas) pumps. There is a parking place outside each room.

This hotel has wonderful views from the restaurant and from some of the rooms. They have a good value dinner buffet available every day.

Deer Lodge: Very close to Lake Louise

This hotel is ideal if you want a slightly cheaper option to staying at the Fairmont Chateau which is actually on the Lake. Deer Lodge is quieter and only a few minutes walk away. They have some relatively cheap rooms, although if you go for this option, be prepared for the room to be very small. (No room for suitcases on the floor).
The hotel has a real 'lodge' feel, decorated with dark wood and antlers.

There is a very good, very expensive restaurant. If this prooves to be too much, they do bar meals too.

Park Place Inn: Jasper accommodation

Park Place Inn is located right in the centre of Jasper, an excellent location for shops and restuarants. The accommodation was fantastic, everything was very luxurious, particularly the bathrooms. The hotel also has secure underground parking.
What we found strange about this hotel is that it isn't really a hotel! There is a small lobby, but no restaurant, bar or any other public areas. It really consists of 14 rooms, 12 of which are on the first floor with the lobby. The other 2 rooms are accessible through a small shop on the ground floor!
Having said this, it makes an ideal, very comfortable place to lay your head.

Blue Sage B&B: Ashcroft - A great stop on route

The Blue Sage is a lovely guest house in the small town of Ashcroft BC. The accomodation was lovely and we were made very welcome by our hosts Gloria & Jim Duncan, There are only 4 rooms, all beautifully decorated. Breakfast is served on the balcony as long as it's warm enough.

There is a visitors lounge where guests can relax and watch DVDs or chat. Ashcroft doesn't have a lot to offer visitors, bit we managed to find a 'Greek' restaurant that served nice food.

Mount Robson Wilderness Campground: Wilderness Camping in the Rockies!

There are seven fantastic wilderness camgrounds in Mount Robson (Kinney Lake, Whitehorn, Emperor Falls, Maromot, Berg Lake, Rearguard and Robson Pass Campgrounds). These camgrounds are approachable for hikers only and the rest offers great views especially the Marmot and Berg Lake Campgrounds. Booking in advance is recommended during the summer months. One night costs $5 per tentplace (2006).

The views are really amazing!

Many different locations: Suprisingly good prices!

The hotel we stayed in cost $200 Canadian for 4 people! It was a beautiful wooden building with very nice views of the surrounding mountains. The accomodation in Banff varies from cheap to outrageously expensive. The Banff Springs Hotel, while beautiful cost $800 for the cheapest room. For one night only!!!!

The difference with North American hotels and Australian hotels is that in Australia, we have kettles in the rooms with the option of coffee or tea. In North America the have coffee machines and kettle are optional!

Everywhere you turn the views just get better than the last!
