We spent 3 nights here and were very satisfied with our accommodations. The desk staff were very helpful and friendly and housekeeping was excellent. Excellent location, very pleasant stroll to main town area just a couple of blocks away. Quiet and we slept well in the comfortable bed. Our room was quite spacious and comfortable. Could have used a bit... More

The hotels location is a 5 minute walk from the heart of Banff from where you can rent bikes, canoes and arrange a multitude of trips. For those with a car there is a small car park at the hotel (free of charge). The rooms were a good size, the beds were comfortable and the rooms had air conditioning. The... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the end of June. The staff were very friendly and helpful from the off. The room was not most modernly decorated I've seen but very comfy and worth the money. Not kettle but we just asked and they brought one immediately. No more than a 5 minutes walk to centre of town so handy for... More

This hotel is on the main road in Banff which makes walking into town centre very convenient. The double bed room we stayed in was small and a bit crowded. However, it had a small table for coffee or breakfast and a view of the ground parking lot. The bathroom was a bit old but functional. The hotel lobby is... More

I recently stayed here for two nights in the family suite and it was everything we could ask for. The room was clean, large and quiet. The sink counter was separate from the shower and loo, which really helped to speed things up when we were all getting ready. There was another sink for washing up all the cups and... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Irwin's Mountain Inn for two nights and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is somewhat dated but it was clean and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

A clean room with comfortable beds and friendly staff. The price for our 2 night stay was reasonable but our sleep was disturbed each night by late night drinkers at the neighbouring bar.
