The buildings look nice and inviting and the staff was friendly, but the rooms are quite small... very small actually and the carpets and fixtures are all old and worn out. I felt like I should be wearing my shoes inside to keep my socks clean. On top of that, there was no A/C to keep the room cool on... More

Our stay here was nice. Our room was nice however with a few suitcases it fell a bit crammed. The service on the patio was slow. The front desk staff were quite friendly. Our key was "old school" and was an actual key (rather large in size in awkward). The fire place was nice and sitting area seemed cozy. It... More

I had a very nice stay. The room was quiet and real fireplace was a nice touch. It was a little pricey compared to the competitors in my opinion and I didn't feel I got anything better or extra for the extra cost. I would stay there again in a crunch but would definetly pick a number of other places... More

vaulted ceiling, fireplace, clawfoot tub makes it tough to leave the room. the only negative is that we could hear people talking in the next room. we stayed in four places on this trip and we found this to be the best of the bunch.

Quite expensive but it was a nice room and we had a good time. The wedding venue was very well put together and the staff were great. The food was fantastic at the wedding. Drinks we good but over priced.

Booked through trailfinders, and got to say that the staff were very pleasant. When booking remember most places have a 4pm check in, so if you plan the day, make sure you can go out and about, while you wait to check in. Most hotels don't have refrigerators in the rooms, however, if you request it, they usually can accommodate... More

We had a premier room, beautiful bathroom, but for the price of the room we expected a fridge, and at least a better coffee maker to have a great cup of coffee to go with the wonderful porch. We would still stay there again.

Upon arriving the staff took care of us immediately. Front staff full of smiles and very helpful. They set us up in one of their best rooms (most of the premium king rooms are the same, but ours had the best view) The room was set up ready for the fire, it was beautiful. Heated floors in the bathroom and... More

Stayed at Buffalo Mountain Lodge with my family of 4 (kids aged 14 & 12) in August 2015 for 2 nights. Banff is very very busy in the summer and it was nice to have a hotel not on the main strip. Room was lovely with the wood fireplace being a nice touch but the weather was too warm for... More

A great time at Buffalo Mountain Lodge, sad to leave. Felt cared for by the helpful, friendly professional staff. Huge room with plenty of nice touches. Particularly enjoyed the breakfasts, with plenty of choice. Couldn't fault the whole experience. Definitely recommended.
