A Place to Gather Since 1937

In 1955, before the ranchers settled, Picture Butte was home to a booming sugar industry and a brand new hotel. Built to attain a liquor licence, the Picture Butte Hotel was the tavern to travel to for a cold beer after a hard day’s work – and still is. But today, there’s so much more on the menu than just beer and pretzels.

With a choice selection of European beers and a globally-inspired menu, The Picture Butte Hotel offers an experience as grand and diverse as the prairies. Whether you’re celebrating 10 years of marriage, or just looking for a reason to go for a drive, we’re here to create an experience you’ll remember.


A History of

Shared Stories

With over 50 years of continuous operation, the Picture Butte Hotel is filled with memories from the floorboards to the roof! Over the years, our customers have been generous enough to share their memories with us. From the engineer who stayed here in the fifties, to the truck driver who rented a room in the eighties, we’ve heard stories from every decade of the hotel’s operation.

We’re so honoured to continue the tradition of creating lasting memories. That’s why we’re committed to creating a great atmosphere, delicious food, and drinks you can’t find west of the Telegraph. Here’s to another decade of making more memories!
