The first room we checked in to had a weird gurgling sound from the heater. They couldn't fix it so we were upgraded to a different room. The room was great. The room was spacious with a great fireplace. The bathroom was also quote spacious and featured a beautiful claw foot bath. On our second night, the power went out... More

We stayed here after 4 days in a cute cabin in Lake Louise, so I could be a little biased. The lobby and main areas of the hotel are GORGEOUS - plus there were Christmas decorations, so it was even more festive. The lounge was cozy with AMAZING food - we had bison and caribou; both were cooked SO well... More

Thank you for your kind comments; I’m glad our holiday décor got you in the festive spirit! I’m also pleased to hear that you enjoyed our Rocky Mountain Cuisine and received a warm welcome from our staff. I’m sorry that the Buffalo room type wasn’t quite what you were hoping for. We will bear your observations in mind when considering... More

This place looks great on pictures however that's where it ends. Our room (804) looked nothing like we thought it would. No claw foot tub, no balcony... Just an old,run down, dirty washroom with a rusty tub. The fireplace was nice but the logs they provided were too wet to burn. It took forever to get any kind of fire... More

The room was average, but clean... housekeeping was really bad the next day though. They did the bare minimum which isn't actually what we were paying for, I don't think... But the kicker was the restaurant/lounge. The service was so bad that people were tossing the money they figured they owed on the tables and walking out. If you can... More

Beautiful, cozy room in the fabulous mountains. We stayed in a upper level room and there was nothing to complain about. The room was clean, fireplace was nice, bathroom with heated flooring was to die for. We will be back!

We stayed in Buffalo Mountain Lodge in November 2014. We stayed on the first floor of the building, and our room was facing the road - I didn't like it, but at the end it was OK, road was not so busy. The interior was quite dated, but having a real wood fireplace in the room compensated for everything! We... More

We had a great stay in Banff. The room was super clean! I am very picky about cleanliness and the layout of the room and the Lodge was perfect. We travelled with our two dogs and they loved it! The fireplace in the unit makes it very cozy and comfortable to hang out in the room as well. Would definitely... More

This was an awesome experience. We were there only one night, Nov 2014, wished we could have had more. We were in the top area of the resort, newer section. Rooms were "upscale rustic" if that makes sense. Lots of stone and wood. Entry and bathroom floors were slate tile and heated. Bathroom had large clawed tub, large corner shower.... More

My husband and I chose this resort for our wedding in January 2014. The staff were so helpful, and helped us to create the winter wedding of our dreams. We only had 10 guests, and we had a very intimate and romantic wedding. The dinner they prepared for us was spectacular, and the service was second to none! We had... More

We love this resort and have stayed numerous times. Near town in a quiet area with easy bus transportation. Several easy trails nearby. Elk and deer frequent the area. Rooms have large stone wood burning fireplaces and some have claw foot bathtubs. Decor is tastefully done like a mountain ski lodge. This hotel has a nice restaurant the Sleeping Buffalo... More
