The hotel presented well, was clean and had friendly staff. What didn't work was the night we stayed, there was a hockey convention. The hotel assured us they had staff working overnight to keep the noise down...and it wasn't super noisy, but noisy enough to keep us up all night. Doors opening and closing, voices now and then. In addition,... More

What most impressed me with the hotel was their attention to little things. The hotel is pet-friendly, and we told then we were planning to bring our dog. When we arrived there was a large pillow on the floor for her, along with a dog bone and chew toy. The breakfast is above average for a complimentary breakfast. A chef... More

Wonderful location and very friendly staff. Breakfasts were excellent! Room was spacious and very clean. The layout was a bit confusing until day 2, but I enjoyed the Banff Ptarmigan and would return for another visit.

I was a little hesitant at first to try their breakfast. I am so glad I did. Probably one of the best meals while visiting Banff. They had a friendly staff and it was in close proximity to everything. Safeway was around the corner so that helped with the basics, such as water. Of course just going to Banff in... More

We booked a split room for 4 of us during Easter weekend. The room was small, but that would have been OK if the rest of the experience had been good. It was so hot in the room, and the thermostat had already been turned all the way down. There were not enough towels and other amenities in the room... More

We chose this hotel for a skiing vacation because it advertises as 'locally owned and operated', because it offered 'free internet', and 'free hot breakfast'. We were disappointed in all three areas. 1)All staff we encountered in the hotel are from Australia, and while there's nothing wrong with friendly and enthusiastic 20-something year old Australian staff, they were mostly brand...

My wife and I are frequent visitors to Banff, as it is only an hours drive away, but this is the first time we've stayed here. It is a very nice place, close to town and has underground parking available. However, BE AWARE!!! next to this hotel there is a major construction project and whilst it didn't disturb our stay...

The reception, bar and restaurant staff are all amazing, such a fun and helpful group. The management staff are less helpful. Rooms are very comfortable and the food is good. If you're hoping to use the Internet whilst at the hotel then choose your room carefully as some rooms it's excellent but unfortunately in the room I was in it... More

Our stay in Banff was fabulous. The hotel staff are amazing!!!! Cant say enough about how nice everyone was. My only complaint (if you can call it that) was wifi was very weak or non-existent in the rooms. The lobby it worked fine 90% of the time. So if you have work to do, it makes it a bit difficult,...

While not the newest hotel, it's a great value. Free hot breakfast, decent wi-fi, great steam room and hot tubs, and comfortable beds. We have stayed here before and it's consistently a good choice for snowshoeing/hiking weekends.
