We stayed for 3 nights early July. The hotel is ideally located for wandering around the town without being in the centre. Reception was efficient and the lobby area was inviting. The room was plenty big enough for 2 of us, with a double bed each. We were on the side of the hotel so didn't have a nice view,... More

Recently stayed there. A few hours after I checked out, I found I forgot to pack my headphone and hair towel into my suitcase when I left. I called the front desk, and they said they didn't have anything in their lost & found. I left them my phone number and email, and asked them to contact me if they... More

We stayed one night. Across from Safeway and if you like Busy this is the place, The whole room is smaller than my master bedroom at home. The beds are comfortable. But it was sooo hot. No air conditioning. One fan that went crackle, squeak. Right on the main drag, had to have the window open so very noisy with... More

We stayed 2 nights. This hotel was convenient to town, shops etc. and also a Safeway practically next door. Staff was friendly and helpful as needed. Lobby decor was warm and inviting with sitting area around a fireplace. Rooms were clean, well stocked and beds were quite comfy. As to the comments about no air conditioning there was a good...

It's location is perfect for access to everything in Banff, but we found the hotel of average quality. It was certainly over priced. Rooms were just standard, cleaning staff didn't do much more the change our towels. If we are in Banff again we will definately look for some place else. We were there on a 90 degree day with...

The hotel is conveniently located in the main street in Banff. All the shops are within walking distance and it makes it real nice. It's also close to Safeway and easy for us to get grocery. Yet the rooms are without air conditioning - it could get really warm. The ceiling fan helps, but it took a while for the... More
