I loved this place! We stayed here during November 2015 for a week. You get a lovely cabin with a fireplace, central heating, a kitchen, a bathroom and a bedroom. The room we had was well kept, clean and very cosy. Some of the reviews on here say the rooms are dated. I didn't think that at all. I thought... More

We stayed here for three nights in a self contained unit; kitchen, lounge and bedroom. The rooms were cleaned and serviced each day including doing our dishes. The place is walking distance to the town of Banff, but there is also a bus service and the hotel provides free bus passes for the length of your stay. There is a... More

We stayed for the weekend in January in a studio suite in the main building. The room had everything we needed and we loved the wood burning fireplace. The deck is massive, would be great in summer for sitting out and lots of room for kids to play. Although we were quite pleased with all the amenities in the room... More

Douglas Fir is located up and out of the way of Main Street Banff, so it's really nicely secluded and quiet. On your way there, if your timing is right, you will see wildlife eating. The chalets are nice. We rented a one bedroom loft and it was way more than enough for the two of us. The water park... More

First: Banff is incredible. I feel guilty reviewing it as good. It's just the Douglas fir that is only "good" - the setting is breathtaking. Room: pros -There were 10 of us. 4 kids under 5 and 6 adults. We had a room in the main lodge and everyone had their own bedroom. 2 families of 4 and 1 set... More

Great place for kids - slides and play area (for little kids) are great fun: The hot tubs inside and outside are great for kids and adults What could be improved is the internet connection was really non existent even though we were told that during peak times the internet would be slow it was really not accessible. Additionally, there... More

We have visited DF several times when we lived in Canada and decided to come back for Christmas. We hired an A frame chalet which was small but comfortable. Internet connection was abysmal, it would have been good to be able to contact relatives over Christmas but wasn't meant to be, the info here stated it might be slow but... More

After reading many of the reviews of the hotel, we were very happy with our stay and it was better than we expected. The staff from checkin to the cleaners were all very pleasant and more than helpful and accomodating. The rooms are a bit dated, but it did not matter to us. We were a large family group with...

Probably our 5th stay since 1991. Our Loft unit with separate downstairs bedroom has always worked for us. We really liked the free transit passes for guests. We parked the Van when we got there and didn't touch it until we left. They have upgraded the TV systems. Wifi was very slow, almost unusable at times. The dishwasher front was... More

We stayed one night in a condo with our ten year old daughter and our 4 month old puppy. We loved the condo with fireplace, separate bedroom with TV and the full kitchen with breakfast items waiting for us when we arrived. The bathroom was great. Water slides and outdoor hot tub were excellent. Lots of forest around the grounds... More
