Nita Lake Lodge

We stayed at Nita Lake for a week long skiing break. Our room was a one bedroom suite with a non-lake view. First piece of advice would be to pay the extra for a lake view room as whilst you do get a mountain view, primarily it is a residential view. The room however was lovely. A genuine first rate standard which was great to come back to after a day’s skiing. It has a spacious seating area as well as a hall type area which contains a wardrobe as well as a very small kitchen type set up. This includes a sink, small fridge, basic utensils and kettle/toaster/microwave/cafetière. This proves really handy for some basic breakfasts and drinks, although it is not sufficient to consider anything more. The bathroom was stunning however and includes heated natural stone floor, a large shower enclosure, a very large bath and a separate toilet. Definitely the highlight of the room. The bedroom is a good size, but a point of note is that it is not actually a separate bedroom and is a walk through from the lounge area. The bed was really comfy, but it is low for those that consider those issues. All the rooms have a spacious balcony area with table and chairs.
Wifi comes included free of charge, but it is somewhat intermittent and the speeds will not allow any sort of streaming and face timing etc was a bit hit and miss. There are a couple of cupboards for clothes but there are no drawers in the room which is a bit of a downside.
There is also lots of literature in the room about the local area, what to do and where to eat etc.
The only downside to the room during our stay was the standard of the daily housekeeping. Quite often the hoovering wasn’t done and the bathroom sink and countertops were not cleaned. A minor issue granted and whilst it did not affect our stay in anyway I would expect better from a hotel of this standard.

With regards to other facilities there is a casual bar area downstairs which serves a limited range of food and snacks. The staff are always very helpful and friendly and a nice place for a drink. There is a large tv in the barwhich also shows sports etc. Aura, the hotel restaurant is also next to the bar. We didn’t eat in here other than a bit of breakfast so can’t comment on the evening food. It’s nice inside however and not pretentious or over priced. There is a cafe on site called fix and this serves sandwiches and snacks until around 4.30 pm. It’s a good size and gives a good option for lunch and a quick breakfast.

There are a couple of outdoor hot tubs and robes provided in the rooms to venture down. There is a spa onsite with a good range of treatments at a reasonable price. Nice spa with a lovely lounge to relax in before or after treatments. Definitely recommend the Swedish massage!

The biggest negative for me during the stay was the hotel gym. Whilst the description does say that it is shared with a local fitness company I was surprised at the quality of the gym in comparison to the rest of the hotel and other hotels of a similar standard. It is small and the quality of the equipment is really poor and old. I tried to use the gym twice and on both occasions there was a trainer in there doing some sort of class for three people. Given the size of the place this meant that I couldn’t get on the majority of things and was limited to a small area of the gym. On both occasions I walked out after a short amount of time.

There are laundry facilities down on the car park level with both washers and dryers. A wash is 2.50 and dryer 2 dollars. It takes dollar coins and quarters only and sells detergent too at reception. Car parking is underground at the hotel.

From a skiing perspective Nita lake is a good ten minute walk to creek side where the gondola is located. However, on the hour and every half hour the hotel put a minibus service on that drops u at creek side and a couple of minutes from the gondola. The hotel also provide you with a ski locker in a secure room at creek side so there is no need to lug your skis and boots back to the hotel daily. You can also purchase lift passes etc at creek side. Skis are not allowed in the room but the hotel do provide a storage area downstairs near to reception for this.

Creekside has a small centre which contains a good sized supermarket, ski shop including rentals and other little shops, bank etc. creekbread restaurant is also well worth a visit for a good value pizza.

The minibus mentioned continues from creek side up to whistler village and then back again in a loop. It does drop at blackcomb too during the daytime. Of an evening it will also drop at the rim rock cafe, which is a nice restaurant just up the road from creekside. The bus is always punctual and the drivers friendly. It provides a really convenient aspect to the hotel being that little bit further out.

The setting of Nita lake is stunning, particularly out the back of the hotel and we found it absolutely lovely being able to return here after a days skiing or a trip to whistler village area which is about 10 minute drive away. It is incredibly peaceful and a lovely hotel to relax in. There were a few little bits and pieces as I’ve mentioned that could be improved upon but overall we loved the location being a Little outside whistler village and would definitely return here and recommend it to others.

Nita Lake Lodge

We love Nita Lake! It’s always an amazing experience, wonderful atmosphere, we plan on many more trips in the future. Clean, friendly, and plenty of accommodations, highly recommend this hotel. The staff is always friendly and go above and beyond and the rooms are beautiful. The spa was also fantastic and well worth it for us. We have taken our daughter there as well and we all had an amazing trip.

This place is fantastic! The service is impeccable – the staff is all trained to attend to any need a guest might have. Everyone we dealt with, from the front desk, shuttle drivers, to the maintenance staff, were polite, and extremely helpful.
The decoration of the suite are in a true lodge style with earth tones and comfortable seating. The upper floor rooms are amazing with had vaulted ceilings, a balcony, a fireplace, and a huge bathroom with heated floors. There is a large living room, which is furnished with a leather armchair plus a deep sofa facing a large flat screen, and a small table. The high loft ceilings made the room seem much bigger. The fireplace was perfect to keep the room both cozy and romantic.
French doors separate the large 4-piece bathroom with heated floors. The bathroom had granite counter top, a soaker tub, separate glass/slate tile shower with built-in bench, two mirrors (plus a make-up mirror), ample towels, L’Occitane products (including a bath bomb), Q-tips, cotton balls, hairdryer, Kleenex, and plenty of storage space! The radiant programmable heated floors were the essence of how far they go to provide ultimate comfort.
Self-parking was a breeze and is located under the Lodge. Simply park and ride the elevator up to the lobby. Super clean and convenient.
The Lodge offers free shuttle service to Whistler. The drivers took time to chat about local attractions and what was happening in the village during our stay. The free shuttle service to and from Whistler village was very convenient, and the walk from the hotel around the lake and through the forest to Whistler should not be missed.

Love this hotel! It’s in a great location (away from village) for a quick business retreat. However, if you need to get into the village they have a shuttle that will take you there. We were set up in the Library room for our day long meeting and it was an excellent venue to get creative.

After the work we retired to our rooms (which for us provided an amazing view of the lake in front of the property). A great tip is to make use of the walking/cycling trail just outside the hotel. It provides a great walk/hike along the lake and onwards.

We spent our last 3 days of vacation at Nita Lake Lodge. The suite overlooking the lake was perfect, spacious living room, the separate bedroom with a deck overlooking the lake was a great place for morning coffee. Also loved the double size soaker tub after a day of walking. We ate at both restaurant and lounge, food was very good. Great gym for my workout and then massage and hot tub. We took the shuttle to Whistler for a walk around, a phone call when we were ready to go back and the shuttle was there. All the staff where very friendly, courteous and efficient. Thanks you all. We will be back.

This place is fantastic! The service is impeccable – the staff is all trained to attend to any need a guest might present. We loved the free use of mountain bikes, canoes, kayaks; you just say the word and a bike helmet, life vest or canoe paddle is brought forth and off you go. Our room was a two-bedroom lake view suite, with a beautiful balcony overlooking Nita Lake, and a huge picture window with a gas fireplace that kept us warm throughout our stay. Our room package came with breakfast included each morning in the Aura dining room, which was terrific. A small plunge pool and hot tub came in handy after a day of long walks or rowing a canoe. Upstairs in the spa, there are two more hot tubs (which are designated children-free). Even the smallest details were included, like L’Occitane bath products by the sink, and heated floors in the bathrooms (radiant heat). Just lovely. We adored this hotel and will definitely be back!

Room was nice and spacious but bed was too low and a bit uncomfortable. Pillows were also too full. Liked the property. Good if you don’t mind staying away from downtown. We also stayed at the four seasons. We liked it better even though the room was slightly smaller because the tour seasons is walking distance to shops and restaurants. But if you want a more isolated feel.this is it.

A lovely hotel just outside Whistler village (you still would need a car), the free bus service to and from Whistler village was exceptional. The food is also good at the hotel. Very relaxing although there could be another person helping on the front desk when it gets busy as only 2 ladies were checking us all in (a very large queue) and although efficient they were also helping with restaurant bookings, showing maps etc which is very personal when checking in but waiting to check in was a little frustrating !.

A lovely clean and large room, lovely clean bathroom. Will be back

We booked the studio with bathtub and shower and a chimney in the bedroom. It was exiting. The bedroom and the bathroom were very big, clean and comfortable. The service was very friendly, we received a good instruction about the hotel services and the leisure facilities in Whistler. A shuttle from the hotel to Whistler is available every thirty minutes. An underground parking is available

We were in a 2 bedroom lake view room. The view was terrific. The hotel was a lovely place to relax after a day of skiing and walking distance to the two best restaurants in Whistler, The Red Door and Rimrock ( for which the hotel made recommendations and reservations for us prior to arrival). The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The few extremely small snags we ran into were immediately remedied by the most helpful front desk. We were away from the village bustle but only their shuttle away when we chose to go there. We will definitely return.

We went up to the Nita Lake Lodge for a birthday celebration in November after reading numerous reviews which gave the hotel top marks. We were certainly not disappointed – the Nita Lake Lodge was one of the best hotels we’ve ever stayed in and we’ll definitely be coming back.

The room was spacious and gorgeously decorated with a large, comfortable bed, a beautiful gas fireplace and a large sitting area. Everything was tastefully done with dark wood and stone accents, and it was one of the few places I’ve been where the room actually met (in this case, exceeded) the expectations set by the photographs on the website. The bathroom was amazing – heated floors, beautiful stone work, an enormous shower and separate soaker tub.

Although the main restaurant in the Hotel, Aura, was closed for a private function the night we were there, their lounge, Cure, was open and carried a substantial portion of the Aura menu – the food was excellent and the serving staff were friendly and knowledgable.

The rest of the hotel staff were also amazing. Johannah in particular was able to accommodate a very last minute (1/2 hour notice) request for a romance amenity to be placed in our room while we were at dinner. I made the request knowing it was probably not doable, but she pulled it off with flying colours and was in full communication via email the entire time to ensure I was informed, which in itself is impressive. All of the rest of the staff were wonderful as well – we can’t wait to come back.
