Although our stay at Elephant Lake was a short one we enjoyed the Hotel very much. We had a problem with the room A/C but the Manager sorted it out very quickly and efficiently. The Hotel location is wonderful it being a great base to explore the local wetlands and parks. Would return without hesitation.
