Stayed here for a work conference. Rooms were big and very clean. Looked quite modern. Staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions. Food in restaurant was decent but could have been better. Close to downtown. Would stay again.

Wow, thank you for a wonderful stay at the Banff Centre. We loved the rooms, the views, spent time in the pool, my son loved it and a great workout room. The staff are amazing and soo accomodating. Thank you June and Bernie Hills, we will come back and hope to dabble in the performing arts : )

We were privileged to be given a personal tour by one of our friends who works here. If you visit Banff look out for their performance schedule. Music, drama, art from world-renowned practitioners. This is a college in a remarkable location and with conference facilities that make it accessible to people who aren't able to get there for study, performance,... More

What a nice theatre to see well set up and great viewing options. It is lovely to see the Eric Harvie as it holds a lot of great memories of fabulous performances.

what is there not to like about this tremendous facility in such a terrific setting. Incredible performances by world class performers, great food at their restaurants and interesting exhibitions. All in one location in a terrific place.

The facilities are amazing! Very few people realize the extent of opportunity available besides the educational programs. Our accommodation was every bit as nice as the four star resorts and hotels in the township. Amenities in the rooms were above average and rooms were effectively decorated--good lighting. Dining rooms and room service delivered excellent food and service overall was very... More

A classic theatre. It is so nice to see a well maintained theatre as they have maintained it so well and kept the theme of the Banff centre so well and preserved. Thank you!!

took in two performances: Spike Lee talks; Bruce McCulloch in Young Drunk Punk. Great to occupy the evening before the night life heats up. Beautiful theatres, close to even the furthest hotel and affordable.

I stayed at this hotel for an offsite at the Kinnear Centre and really liked the wooden lodge style feel to the place. The room was a good size with a large comfortable bed with each room enjoying a balcony with great views. Furnishings were adequate, if a little dated and there was a scurry of activity (rubbish collection?) outside... More

Don't understand how this is in this section since it not an attraction. It's an center of arts, Gym and hotel. It is more a community center than anything else.
