Lodge style hotel located on Tunnel Mountain Road a short drive from the town centre. Several separate lodge style blocks. We were on the first floor i.e. one flight up an external staircase. The room was a reasonable size with a nice layout and fireplace. Very comfortable bed and overall a cosy and good quality feel. Staff were helpful and... More

This is our 5th time we have stayed here. Just located outside of the town core it offers a peaceful retreat and lovely mountain views. The suite is spacious with a fireplace and kitchenette though it would be nice if there was an oven available. The complex has a large heated outdoor tub, great for soaking in after a hard... More

Being in Banff for the busy season in the summer is always a challenge. Hotels are grossly over priced and not very easy to book. I had heard some good things about this hotel and decided to try it. Like some other reviewers, we were told that 4pm is check in and nothing was ready early. No call, offer to... More

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
