Vivienne from West Vancouver, BC CA rated Prestige Lakeside Resort 8 out of 10 on July 31, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"We booked in one of the back units, not realizing that there was no balcony and no area on the lakeside for guests to sit out. Unfortunately the hotel was fully booked and we couldn't be ungraded to the lakeside. The patio for outdoor dining and the bar are very nice, but the hotel definitely lacks a common area for sitting out. Can you not build one off the waterfront, down by the marina? Otherwise, a very nice place to stay. Vivienne"
