When you enter this hotel, you step back into time, finding a cozy sitting room with a fireplace, tables for playing cards and games, a life-sized stuffed bear, and lots of people drinking tea. The recently upgraded rooms have comfortable beds, high back chairs, a writing desk, and a nice bathroom at a minimum. Some rooms have views of the lake or pool, and some have decks. Many guests wander the building dressed in bathrobes, because with three large outdoor pools including an Olympic-sized lap pool, an indoor pool, and a hot tub suitable for 30 people, they find themselves in the pools frequently. The pools are heated by natural hot springs so range from 104F to 85F in the Olymp...Read More

We arrived at the restaurants at opening time and we were quickly seated and our orders taken.While we waited, I sampled the warmed saki--very tasty while my husband sample a Japanese beer. Before long, our food arrived.The sushi was freshly prepared and tasty, inagi, ahi, and other rolls were delivered on a board with supplies. The teriyaki and tempura was good, the prawns very tasty.Our waitress checked with us frequently and resupplied our drinks, added to our meal, and delivered our bill in a timely manner. We were very pleased.The decor was plain, tables and chairs, with some bamboo touches on the doors. Most of the diners were couples and small groups. Overall, w...Read More

The Black Forest Restaurant is our favorite place to order German food and we usually make it a priority to visit when we're in Harrison Hot Springs. Although reservations are recommended because the restaurant can be quite busy, they are not required.The main courses offered are thin portions of pork prepared as various schnitzel dishes, a pork hock that is incredibly tender, chicken, and seafood featuring Northwest specialties: trout, salmon, prawns. With your meal are served, spaetzle (a type of pasta), red cabbage, carrots and bread. German beers and wines are available although the Canadian taxes are quite hefty. Desserts are scrumptious and include Black Forest cake and apple strudel....Read More

The Falls is a beautiful, challenging golf course near to Harrison Hot Springs. The locations is a little bit hard to find because the directions seem a little counter-intuitive. You take exit 129 off of the Trans-Canada highway 1 for Annis Road, and then you immediately follow the on ramp to I-1. The trick is there's a road that leaves from the entrance ramp that runs up the side of the mountain to the housing community and golf course.The club house is quite nice, with a restaurant with food priced in the $10 range and featuring salads, soups, sandwiches, steaks, and more. The service has been variable sometimes quick sometimes not so quick and not very good about leaving off items such as d...Read More
