We actually just left the hotel today and am now in Kelowna. We stayed 2 nights at the Douglas For and thought it was a little dated. It's definitely clean and the rooms have everything we need, but I actually wanted to stay in the chalets but got a room instead. However, the rooms have a really good view of... More

First, it is located in beautiful Banff, so any location in Banff is good. I had a nice view (mountains and pine trees) from the balcony in my room. With regard to check-in at the reception building for this property, I do have some suggestions: stop with handing-out various slips of paper with information that one might need during their...

My wife and I stayed at Douglas Fir in late june 2015. With the price we had to pay, we expected the accommodation to be top notch...not so much! When we arrived, my wife wanted to go out on the patio to take a picture of the mountain view from the room. We had a terrible time getting the patio... More

I love that you can fit a large group in one room. But the sofas and dinette need to be renovated badly. Kitchenette is great and I love the make your breakfast option. You get so much for $7. It's not within a walking distance to downtown but they do have a shuttle service. And lots of parking. Outdoor hot... More

We stayed here on the way home from our vacation in Seattle and was exhausted when we arrived. The Staff was super friendly and were quick to help us check in and provide many helpful recommendations for restaurants. there is a bus service that runs from the hotel to Banff to help with not worrying about parking! Pool and hot... More

My kids loved it. Rooms and buildings are dated, mainly clean though and quite comfortable. We stayed in a one bedroom condo (sleeps 4). No coffee filters. But there is coffee. Water slides were enjoyed very much by the kids as was the activity area. So weird the play zone is located in the basement/parking garage. Dingy for sure. But... More

My husband, 7 year old and myself stayed the at Douglas Fir Resort the weekend of July 17th. We stayed in one of the condos (1 bedroom, full kitchen, bath and fold down California bed in the living room, wood burning fireplace, balcony). For the weekend, it was just over $500 so very reasonable for Banff. The condo was nice,... More

As per other reviewers there were both good and not so good aspects here. On a plus note the rooms were spacious, immaculate and we had a great mountain view. Our kids loved the waterpark. On the negative side the rooms were dated, expensive due to this and some but not all of the staff really couldn't be bothered to... More

While this resort has great facilities it is in need of a face lift. The space was great in our loft apartment and the breakfast items provided were good. Our teenage boys enjoyed the pool and waterslide. The room was clean and neat, but the tired old décor is not appealing.

This was a below-average condo with above-average (young) kid activities, so I'll call it average. Had a three-bedroom condo that was comfortable for a group of 10. Banff is amazing so that made up for the dated property and spotty wifi. Kids LOVED the water slides and I loved that it was included in the price of the stay. Grocery... More
