    Amazing Experience!

    We ended up booking our ceremony at Maligne Lake as an alternative to our large reception space when we needed to downsize due to covid. The team was wonderful - flexible, accommodating and everything turned out perfectly. Trina was there every step along the way, always fielding my questions. When it came to the wedding day she ensured everything went off without a hitch!
    We also booked the private cruise to Spirit Island and the staff were UNREAL - we had the best experience!! Would 100% recommend them to everyone I know!

    Winter Wedding

    I can't say enough good things about the Sawridge. The staff was very accommodating and helpful, especially Pat and Nick. If any issues did come up they were quick to fix them. We rented the ballroom for the ceremony and reception and it was perfect. They set up all the tables for us and let us go in the night before to decorate and have rehearsal. One of the best parts was the staff did all of the takedown for us so we didn't have to worry about that after the wedding. We just went down in the morning to box up all of our decorations. We decided on having a plated dinner and the meals we chose were delicious. Definitely reccomend the prime rib. All in all our wedding was nothing short of perfect!!

    May Wedding at Sawridge Inn

    I loved having my wedding reception at Sawridge Inn. Ken, Pat, Sam, Bree, Nick and Maggie were all very helpful and accommodating. We booked 16 months in advance and planning was great with them. The hotel is very lovely, our executive room was wonderful. Upon arrival, their was a beautiful fruit platter and bottle of wine in our room that we enjoyed very much. Unfortunately this hotel does not do towel folding or rose petal decorating but their were complimentary robes, two TVs, a microwave, wine cooler, fridge, coffee machine and a sink in the room. Ken and Pat were very quick in assisting me with my questions and concerns in email and over the phone. Pat helped set up our ballroom and was their to help with anything including when we came in through the front doors and were unpacking! The first day we arrived we met with Nick, Bree and Sam and went over the night of our wedding thoroughly which made me feel confident and less stressed. I especially liked the little details that I requested and were executed perfectly like having two chocolate fountains, one white chocolate and one dark chocolate and red napkins on the table individually folded into roses as per my request and theme. Overall the whole night went very smoothly. The banquet staff was great. One thing I did not like, was the breakfast is not complimentary, I felt for the price per night of our room it should have been included. However their is a coffee station in the lobby with tea and decaf for everyone to enjoy. Lastly, the front desk was very trickey to book through our block. Every time I called they had difficulties looking it up or finding out information, and for one of our guests it was booked under my name instead of their name with their credit card info so it almost got booked with someone else. Also checking out our last day took over 10 minutes bc the staff member was new and not fully trained as were some of the other staff members I had talked to over the phone prior. Overall I rate this hotel 4/5 and I recommend anyone who is looking at booking here for their reception, wonderful service and a worry free time!

    Amazing experience and services

    I couldn't be happier with choosing Sawridge Inn for my wedding reception location. Pat and Maggie were an absolute dream working with. Each and every single question was addressed and although we were unable to make it to Jasper to look at venue beforehand, Pat and Maggie did everything to make my dream a reality. We had countless emails and everything was taken care of without question.
    Usually after a wedding, everyone raves about the food. This was absolutely the case but in addition, people ALSO raved about the quality of service they received from the staff at Sawridge. Our menu was unique in that we asked for butter chicken and other Indian dishes to be included. The food turned out delicious!! The team went above and beyond to ensure the night went flawless. The set up was absolutely beautiful.
    My honeymoon suite was spacious and extremely clean, and that includes the bathroom! There was a cute fruit platter and wine to welcome us when we arrived to our room.
    We were able to have access to the ballroom the night before for set up, and takedown/cleanup was taken care by them. They even offered to set up our centerpieces but we got help from our family.
    Sawridge amazed me with everything they had to offer for our wedding reception. The team truly went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly.
    I would recommend them a million times!

    All the best,

    Fantastic from beginning to end!

    We celebrated our wedding reception at the Sawridge Saturday, June 1, 2019 with 131 guests and it was absolutely perfect. The planning process with Pat McLeod was efficient and easy to do from out of town (we live in Edmonton). He was very helpful and accommodated many changes. Upon arriving at the hotel the day before our wedding, everything was set up exactly as requested and we were able to quickly set up our additional decorations and it was good to go! Such a quick and easy set up process. Fast forward to our reception the next day and everything went swimmingly. I had numerous guests comment on (1) how much they enjoyed the food (we went with the plated dinner) and (2) how good the service was, including the bartenders. We had the best night and we didn't have to do any take down. The staff cleaned up the room and put all of our decorations in a safe place for pick up. If you're thinking about the Sawridge for your wedding, I would definitely recommend it! They go above and beyond to accommodate the bride and groom and they make the planning process a breeze! We had the best time!!

    Wonderful Experience

    We had our wedding reception here in September and it was a wonderful experience. Pat and Nicholas were a great help and were super friendly to talk to. They were both accommodating and helpful throughout the process. Pat took the time to go through all the details with me to ensure the day would go by smoothly and had someone to meet me on various occasions to look at the venue. Nicholas was able to lend us a small table and chair with covers for our outdoor ceremony, which was extremely appreciated, and coordinated the day so there were no hiccups. Overall, our wedding day was wonderful and Sawridge Inn Jasper went above and beyond our expectations.

    Amazing Service and Experience

    The Sawridge brought all our wedding wishes to life and was a pleasure to work with. Pat, our rep, made note of every detail and was there every step of the way making sure it was done. The kitchen and wait staff was equally amazing, the dinner for our guests was perfection. Our wedding reception at the sawridge was perfect. I am forever grateful for Pat at the sawridge making it a truly memorable day.
    If you want a venue that puts customers first and provides 5-star service in one of the most beautiful places on earth... you cant go wrong with the Sawridge Jasper!
