... 16.95 for a day - cheap!
Seattle to Vancouver, felt like we went up into the air then back down, just over an hour flight, however by the time we passed through immigration and customs, because we were now back in Canada, we didn't get to our hotel until 9.30pm.
It was a long travel day, but it was quite a good one with an unexpected scenic flight and Wi-Fi to top it off!!
... so much fun. What was even better was cycling in the rain to the pool. As the weather conditions had clearly put a lot of people off so it was like having an Olympic sized pool all to myself. A special mention should also go to Deborah at this point who also braved it out in the rain despite one to many vinos the night before :)
Which then reminds me - I have purchased an annual pass for grouse mountain so am all set for some skiing after work when the time ...
... said the night before, he loves coming on these cruises to ask anyone looking lost where are they going, and often their response is I don’t know!! It’s so easy to get lost on these big ships.

Managed to sleep a little bit though and didn't have anyone ...
Microbrewing has taken off in a big way in Canada, as far as I can tell every town has at least one brewpub (usually a pub at the front with a small brewery behind). Obviously they brew lager, but there have been some interesting variations, including a black pilsner that was rather aggressive and something almost like a British ale. They even managed to make a beer that Ali would drink, a major achievement, even if it came served with a wedge of lime floating in it.
How has this hotel rated in the past?
My stay was with my family of four and it was slightly cramped. The service was good and I enjoyed my room greatly, but the bathroom needed remodeling because the ceiling was damaged and so was the walls. The food was delicious and the fact that they separated the bar from the family dining area was considerate and the service was fabulous. I say that if it was a traveling couple who wanted to get away, Help yourself!! But as a family of four, it wasn't quite as comfortable as I would have like.
