we actually went to dinner at the three ravens restaurant which is located in the Banff Centre. the centre itself is a "continuation" school for people who want to further their training or teaching of the various arts (voice, instruments, etc..)

If you like to be in city centres this is a good one, with the biggest difference that are the mountains all around the city that makes it a perfect place to enjoy and walk.

The center is always fun and exciting to visit. Art exhibitions , open air concerts in a breathtaking scenery or a lone coyote walking across your path , the place is full of surprises.

Lovely setting down by the Bow River, in a log cabin. Didn't realise how big some of the animals were until I saw them in this situation. Nicely laid out, well worth a visit.

Some staff were rude and not at all helpful. The rooms are old. The bistro service was slow and the food was expensive with small portions. Its a neat location with great views around the campus but lacks customer service.

Banff is a small tourist town, about 150 miles from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The city is cozy and the surroundings are beautiful. Lake Louise, nearby, is a breathtaking spot.

We feel so fortunate to have found the indoor climbing walls at the Banff Centre. Just 4$ to drop in and a mere 3$ for harness and shoe rental. Highly, highly recommended !!

Although it is the highest town in Canada with an elevation of 1.383 metres it certainly doesn't feel like it as it nestles below the towering Rundle Mountain. Banff is a town worth exploring.
