On our honeymoon my husband and stayed in Lodge\Room 314 from 12\6\2012 - 14\6\2012 The staff was amazing and really helpful. The lodge was lovely, it was so comfortable and clean. The bathroom was a wow. The hotel left us a lovely card and tasty presents. The only negative was that the bedroom was a bit dark and the table\standing... More

My boyfriend and I live in Calgary, but are from Ontario and stayed at Buffalo Mountain Lodge for Christmas! It was wonderful! The lobby was decorated and the cabins were amazing with their wood buring fireplaces, complimentary wood and wood interriors! The outdoor hot tub, open year round is salt water and very clean! This lodge allows pets which is... More

We stayed two evenings at the lodge during Canada Day 2012 and the town was very busy and difficult to get from one side of town to another side. We rode the bus downtown to eat. The lodge staff was very friendly. Our rooms were OK, clean but small. Our room had a small deck to sit on in the... More

This is an attractively designed lodge hotel situated on the edge of Banff half way up Tunnel Mountain. There are good mountain views from parts of the hotel (though not our room), and the hotel is right next Banff Meadows which offers fantastic views. The rooms are in pleasant 2 and 3 storey blocks which are rather close together but... More

Lovely property with the outdoors brought in......I've stayed in two different rooms at this establishment.....the lodge room and the premiere room......the premiere rooms are, in my opinion, superior to the lodge rooms......I found the lodge room in need of an upgrade.....they were ok, but not what we were expecting, having initially stayed in a premiere room.....but I must say, the...

When we walked into the room we were pleasantly surprised. Rustic wood, fireplace, claw footed bath tub, shower, balcony with an ok view. This was going to be great! The only problems we encumbered were a toilet that splashed water from the tank onto the floorevery time you flush, and a bathroom sink that doesn't hold water when the drain... More

We stayed in Buffalo Mountain Lodge for 6 nights as part of a 3 and a half week trip to Canada and to get married in Banff. Initially we had booked a queen room through our travel agent. When we got to the hotel we were a little dissappointed with the room although the room wasn't bad it just didn't... More

This was our last hotel on the biking trip. The rooms were nice but carpets showed some wear. There was much more spacious room here than at Moraine Lake or Cathedral Mountain which was appreciated. Rooms at the top of the mountain appear to be quieter and also close to some spectacular views. Excellent staff and the food at the... More

We found this resort through a Living Social Deal and upgraded to a superior room for $50 extra per night because we wanted a king-sized bed. Our room was huge and so was the bathroom. The bedroom had wood-burning fireplace which was restocked daily. The bath had a shower and a claw-footed bathtub with a heated tile floor - it... More

Very disappointed. They stuck us in a room that smelt like it had been on fire. I think the fireplace was used and the damper left closed. We were coughing within an hour. The bed was a queen fold-down from the wall. Miserable mattress barely off the floor. Window would not fully lock. Wedding party went on with loud drunks... More
