We attended a wedding here and stayed overnight. Overall the wedding experience was quite nice. Service was excellent. Rooms were quite nice and somewhat rustic however bathrooms could use a update. Due to all the structures being of wood construction the soundproofing was not that great however we were there for a wedding so did not really notice the room... More

About 1km out of town but worth the trip. A very pleasant welcome and free upgrade to a nicer cabin with Balcony & huge bathroom ! Amazed to see a real fireplace in the room - would be great if not 31 degrees outside! View to mountains. Bed was very comfortable albeit kapok pillows way too soft (should have at... More

We stayed 3 nights at this lodge and had a large, wonderful room with king size bed that was very comfy. A claw foot bath tub was spacious and great for an evening soak. The shower and bathroom was also spacious with all the essentials you need, except the lighting could have been better above the mirror. The restaurant and... More

Buffalo Lodge in Banff Alberta gives the rustic country feel to a beautiful mountain view. The rooms are very well laid out with a country fireplace , claw foot tub and even a balcony looking at the Rookies. The rates are predictable for the area , a little steep but perfect for a visit.

Stayed here for a wedding. Very lovely stay. Staff are friendly and attentive. The rooms were clean and the king room was very spacious. Although a bit dated, it has a lodge feeling rather than a resort feel. The food on site was delicious - you don't even need to go into Banff to eat if you don't want to... More

Not a bad hotel... A little way out of town.. Would be a hard 20 minute walk .. We had a ground floor cabin style room with 2 double beds and a huge fireplace... Plenty of firewood available if the weather permits.. A little noisy when you have guests upstairs. Nice large hot tub outside. A bit expensive for a... More

Our en suite ground floor room had parking a few strides away two big beds, two big fireside chairs and, if it was cold and we wanted it, a log fire. The staff light it for you and set you right if you ask. Staff were really helpful and responsive. Restaurant looked nice but we were in 'on the road'... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend last winter. We thought their rooms were very nice and romantic (loved the fireplace!). They are a decent size and give you that "mountain lodge" charm. Location is up out of main area of town a little bit (not bad at all), so if you are looking for a little more peace and quiet this... More

A real fire... Thats only one of the many unique features of this resort. I loved being able to have a real wood burning fire at night, and read stories to my kids before bed, while being able to see a magnificent mountain view out the window beside the fireplace. The rooms are well appointed, super comfortable and with all... More
