I was lucky enough to spend a few days at the stunning Fairmont Chateau Whistler in April and needless to say when my time was up, I didn’t want to leave… Without a shadow of a doubt, this hotel deserves it reputation, it's Whistler’s flagship property but it's more than just another luxury hotel. It really does have a great slope side location - I don’t think I’ve ever actually stayed somewhere and been able to ski right back to the door, but you can here. I stayed in a Mountain View Suite which was huge and had great view of the mountains and Blackcomb slopes. I had a sitting room, 2 bathrooms and an amazing bed, it’s well worth the upgrade!

Three plates later and about a stone heavier, I waddled off to the ski lifts. The service throughout the hotel is great and all the staff there were lovely – but what really stands out is the incredibly warm laid back atmosphere which is something you don’t always find, it's totally fine to wander through reception in your dressing gown to the swimming pool! As I relaxed in the Mallard bar on my final evening with a nice glass of wine I vowed to come back …but be warned, the sofas are so comfortable you might just doze off and never leave!
