We stayed here three nights in August 2014 in a king size bedroom suite. The room was not ready on time and we were asked to come back in an hour. Not impressed and not even an offer of another room that was ready or complimentary tea or coffee. So we went down to Banff, had a coffee and returned... More

This was a lovely resort with great staff and amazing food! We had the whole building to ourselves, which made it feel that much more intimate. The food service staff were pleasant and personable with all of the guests. They even made sure that the young children had drinks during the cocktail hour. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

We stayed here 20 years ago on our honeymoon and returned this summer. It was great to be back! The hotel is up away from the bustle and traffic of the town with wonderful views of the mountains. We had a one bed room with fireplace which was spacious and clean. The carpet was stained tho and the entertainment center... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our wonderful Canadian holiday mostly booked through Kuoni Travel UK. I have to admit that, in spite of the excellent welcome we received at reception, the initial impression of our ground floor room was dark and a little daunting. The day was dull which didn't help and the lovely trees outside... More

I loved this place! The room was wonderful, ask for a premier room, the bed nice, the bathroom was great, it was huge with a heated floor!! The room had a fireplace, which we didn't get to use because they were having a heat wave while we were there!! We had a balcony with the greatest view of a meadow... More

We stayed at the Buffalo Mountain lodge in August for 2 nights in a room on the upper floor of the 900 block. It was a great spacious room with a high wooden lodge ceiling, comfy bed and a big bathroom with a full-size bath and separate shower. There isn't any air conditioning, but the high ceiling and fan in... More

Due to the reviews of others, when we arrived, we requested an upgraded room in the 1100 block... the extra $25/night was well spent... and gets you the type of room pictured on the hotel's website. Room was large and comfortable, with great views of the forest. Only real complaint was that we could've used screens on the windows, or... More

We have stayed in banff about 8 times and this is our favorite hotel. The staff is amazing and the location is great. They allow pets in some rooms which is perfect for us. We ended up having our wedding here and it was perfect! I would recommend this place 100%

This is a lovely hotel and we had a superior room right at the back of the complex which overlooked the gathering of trees, with fantastic views of the mountains to the right and left. We were greeted by Roe Deer just outside our balcony on arrival in to our room - beautiful. The room was comfortable, with a real... More
