Bishop's Lodge Resort and Spa Review

Although this historic resort and tranquil SháNah Spa is just a 10-minute drive from the Plaza, its setting in a bucolic valley at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains makes it feel worlds apart. Outdoor activities abound including hiking, horseback riding, skeet shooting, tennis (professional lessons available) and trapshooting. History runs deep here with the nearly 150-year-old chapel built by Archbishop Jean Baptiste Lamy—a figure lionized by writer Willa Cather—at the resort's center. Rooms have antique and reproduction Southwestern furnishings, and many offer balconies or patios with spectacular mountain vistas. The Las Fuentes Restaurant & Bar specializes in inventive Nuevo Latino fare made from the produce and herbs from the property's heritage garden. Locals often descend on the excellent Sunday brunch.

    Twilight Zone

    Just got back from a long weekend with my daughter. Several people told me Bishops Lodge was wonderful! Don't know what year they went but it was awful.... The rooms are stinky and need a real update. I have seen better rooms for a lot less money...MOTEL 6 as an example - not worth the money! Forget the restaurant and the bar. The bartender couldn't work the computer so he was making everyone pay in cash!

    Purgatory.

    Awful, retrofitted 1915-1920 rooms (unless you are willing to pay over $450 per night for a one room suite). Their $200 room would be a $39 room in a third class motel. Terrible food. Surly, inexperienced service staff (when you can find them). Hot water either off or at a minimum. Billing mistakes. Inconvenient parking. This place stinks (literally...our room smelled of mildew and must). Avoid this hotel at your peril. And by all means, do not book far in advance...they might be out of business by the time you arrive. If we weren't there with a wedding group, we would have checked out.
