Facilities were much more run-down in appearance than we remembered when we stayed for our honeymoon...even had a couple maintenance issues with our deck and bathroom doors. There was also a noise issue the last night that didn't help. That said, the staff were friendly, attentive and did their best to address our concerns. Still a nice place to stay... More

It was our 50th wedding anniversary and when we checked in, we had fruit and cheese plate waiting in the room. We loved the bed, the heated floor in the bathroom and the fireplace. It was our 2nd stay and hopefully, it will not be our last. Staff was so accommodating and if we needed anything at all, they responded... More

Housekeeping did a great job maintaining the order of the rooms. No complaints! Staff at the desk were cordial, too. Next time I stay, I am walking downtown. Wish I stayed for breakfast. It looked and smelled amazing!

Apart from a bit of noise from the road and from running water in other rooms, the weekend at Buffalo Mountain Lodge was lovely! Service was great, food was good and we enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel and its placement.

We have visited this lodge on multiple occasions. For the most part, we are extremely pleased and would consider it one of the best places to stay for the best “Banff Experience" The setting is beautiful and it is secluded but still close enough to town to walk to for the active types. The rooms are not large in size... More

We loved our stay. The wood burning fire place, large bathroom and deck with a view made our stay very enjoyable. The restuarant attached to the lodge was well run and cosy. It maed it easy to have a nice meal without travelling into town.

We stayed at the lodge last night in a premier room with a lovely mountain view. Our room was private and we couldn't hear our neighbour's as mentioned in other reviews. The room was very clean and in good shape, although a little small. The wood burning fire place was a very nice touch, with plenty of wood stocked just... More

We had a truly memorable experience last September. The room seemed small and dark at first but when the fire was lit and the snow fell it was a cosy retreat. The warm bathroom and slate tiled floor was a treat. Good parking too right outside the lodge. Choose one on the upper floors if you can. Take advantage of... More

Good value for money. Very expensive breakfast. Room needed abit of an upgrade and short of a dressing mirror. Could be noises as walls thin, we had a baby next door who cried a lot! Setting is good, you need a vehicle to get to Banff town. Hot tub good. Parking accessible and always available. Get what you pay for!
