My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It was amazing! We were only here one night but we made the best of it and had a very cozy and romantic room with a vaulted ceiling in the fireplace. The staff were very friendly. We went back for our 10 year anniversary just recently and had an amazing time... More

The room was clean and nice. The front desk staff on the other hand was not friendly or helpful at all, that put me in a bad mood right, when we checked in! The location wasn't the Greatest. There are many choices in Banff, I would explore other hotels.

Wedding - be sure to consider the weather changes on the ridge. Flowers blew over and were damaged. Had to gather rocks to hold them down and rearrange them. Elderly - transportation around the resort was difficult for our elderly grandmother until we realized that a shuttle was available at request. Congestion - the lower level was quite congested with... More

Beautiful setting and cozy rooms! I bet this place would be ideal in the winter with the fire-places. We had our best meal during our trip, in the restaurant at the Buffalo Lodge. Delicious food and good service.

My wife was ecstatic with this resort. The only down side for this stay it was the warm summer night prevented us from using the fireplace. I have visited Banff over the past 40 plus years, admittedly I was not aware of this resort. The cost per night plus $300.00. The evening checkin staff very pleasant but due to their... More

Booked two rooms at once. Buffalo Mountain put rooms next to each other without even requesting it, very much appreciated!!! Had 1009 & 1011 which were ground floor and we could share patios between the two rooms. Awesome for two families travelling together !!!

We stayed here for two nights. The room we had #707 was OK. Cleanliness was good however the carpet was full of spots and impossible to clean. Further we had a openfire place in our room. First impression was positive however the room had also a bad smell of smoke. The Restaurant experience was acceptable, however the Salmon and Lobster... More

We just live in Calgary and like to stay at a new place in Banff every month or so, we have tried the Fairmont as well as several other hotels and lodges this year so far and the Buffalo Mountain Lodge gave us the most consistent, excellent service so far. We arrived very late to check in as we were... More

Recommended by our Travel Consultants, Trailfinders (London) (***** five stars!) - who suggested staying at the Buffalo (rather than a place we had chosen). Their local knowledge proved perfect for our needs. Just out of Banff town - but no problem with our hire car (or with inexpensive taxis), the Buffalo has beautiful pine/cedar clad bedrooms, beautiful slate/stone bathrooms, wooden... More

Disappointed on arrival to find it a bit further out of Banff than is ideal. Couldn't walk in without a hilly climb back. We had a hire car, though, so in less than five minutes we'd parked in central Banff for free. It proved no problem at all. The hotel reception staff were efficient and welcoming, we had a fantastic... More
