Home away from home.
We recently stayed at the BW, as part of a business trip. A large group of us lived there for a month and the staff made it feel like home. Upon first glance the BW may not feel as fancy as the Copper Point, but staff and location make up the difference.
Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff, from the hotel desk operators to cleaning staff, to bar staff and maintenance workers. The owners Margaret and husband Bryce along with their daughter who manages the hotel will do their best to make you feel comfortable in your stay.
The rooms were clean and came with a microwave, mini fridge, and cable tv. I was sad I couldn't order the on demand movies but these days with everyone travelling with tablets and laptops I didn't need it. The beds were comfortable and the staff was accommodating in my request for a lower density pillow. They even had toothpaste for me which I forgot.
Living there for a month it was great we had access to laundry that was a reasonable $4 to wash and dry. We also had a good breakfast of scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage ham and beans. Perfectly acceptable and accessible for early mornings. We also had the pub for great meals, drinks, pool and the friendly town hall atmosphere. Perfect for a drink or two and charging the bill to your room! The kitchen was also kind to adjust the menu or make something upon request due to personal or dietary accommodations.
The little town on Invermere is so sweet and staying downtown; a short walk to the beach or shops is perfect! Most places close early during the week and some are closed Sundays but staying right in town is a must! Leave the car parked and enjoy this little town for all it has to offer! We will definitely be back to stay in the summer, and did I mention how much they love dogs!! Bring your furry friends because this hotel is really more like a family!
