Bernadette from Prince George, BC CA rated Pemberton Valley Lodge 10 out of 10 on September 09, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"It was one of the best hotels our family has stayed at. We loved all the conveniences of the washer, dryer, pool and really enjoyed the fireplace with the option of the no heat setting and still looking like a real fire. I hope you can offer these low special rates in the future so that we can efford to come back."

Diana from Bellingham, WA US rated Pemberton Valley Lodge 9 out of 10 on July 19, 2005 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"This is in a very small village north of the hustle of Whisler. It is very quiet. There is a good restaurant in the village. The swimming pool is wonderfully heated with steep mountain views all around. All the rooms have complete kitchens. We were there in the summer and spent our time hiking."
