Our room was cozy & quiet, bed comfortable and lots of choices for continental breakfast. This is a three story structure with no elevator, BUT the staff offered multiple times to help us with our bags. A cozy fire was going every night and morning, with lots of seating surrounding it. It 's located about 10 minutes outside town at the base of the ski hill. We would definitely stay here again when we visit Whitefish.

We ended up with a room on the 3rd floor, please note, there is no elevator. My husband carried our suitcases up, staff had offered to help, but hubby was too proud to accept help. Not only were we on the 3rd floor, but you have to walk up many steps to get to the 1st floor of rooms. Enough said. The building is beautiful. There is a large lounge area with a huge fireplace, which we were lucky to enjoy. There is a small bar, the "Snug Bar", I think it literally had 3 small tables in it. They could offer a small selection of food, but not on a Monday, which is when we were there. There is a restaurant in the lodge, limited selections and they were too funky for us to enjoy. Note that the lodge is located outside of Whitefish, about 10 minutes or so, and it's up a steep and winding road. There is very limited parking outside the lodge - if you don't get a space, you will park across the road in a gravel parking area. Management, it would be nice if there was a bit of lighting there to help navigate the area, or a set or 2 of steps so you don't have to walk all the way around the lot to get to your car. I"m sure there is a concern about light pollution, but surely something could be figured out - gets pretty dark out there at night. The bed was very comfortable and there were a couple of leather chairs in our room to sit and chat in. There is an outdoor hot tub which was nice to use. The breakfast was continental, but included cheeses and luncheon meats, which my husband appreciated. The breakfast was very good. I'm only giving a rating of 4 stars for the rooms/value because of the lack of an elevator.

Loved staying here, super peaceful. The staff was very kind and I was able to check in early. The lobby was a really great spot to hangout after dinner. The only downside is it’s away from all the shops and restaurants but regardless I would stay again.

Excellent location and terrific staff

My wife and I loved our 8 day stay at Kandahar, Restaurant was booked but same menu was available on the outside patio which was no sacrifice. Excellent chef. Loved the location and hope to return in the future.

Our first interface was with the receptionist who said he was unable to book us dinner in the restaurant, saying it was separately owned. It was 15 paces from the desk and so presumably he could have walked in, via the common door. Our phone was dead but fortunately, one of the staff (delightful Juan) came past and sorted it out. Not very impressive for a hotel! Dinner was extremely good. The Cafe Kandahar chef is very talented and charges accordingly. We didn't mind. The rest of our stay was marked by good service, especially Jim in the bar. A nice guy. The food was all produced by the Cafe Kandahar, supposedly run separately. Honestly, this was mind boggling. I would suggest they (management) knocked their heads together and came up with a more joined up service. Again the food was lovely. The room was good. The location, just down from the ski life is excellent, with a stunning approach road up the mountain.
