This resort is made for families with children, particularly pre-teens. Good pool area with two water slides and a large play structure for younger children. The rooms are dated but very clean, with full kitchens. It is a pit pricey but then again this is Banff after all. It is a few minutes drive to downtown Banff so nice and... More

My family was in Banff for my sons wedding and we stayed in one of the family suites. It easily accommodated 10 people with out feeling like you are on top of each other! I recommend it for anyone for a weekend get away so you can all stay together! The staff is great and very accommodating.

To start off this review, this hotel is a great place for families with kids... We were not a family with kids, we rented an "A" frame chalet, it was quite expensive but a neat experience and lots of room. The hot tub in the evening was too full of children to enjoy as a group of young adults but... More

Like many of the lodges in Jasper, this place is dated. The decor, and especially the kitchen, were a blast from the past. That being said, WHO CARES! We stayed in a studio condo. Even though there is some sort of store on the campus, these people actually stocked the kitchen with breakfast staple foods! The room was huuuge, and... More

Having the little Kitchenette was nice because or daughter likes to wake up slowly and the usual trick of cooking bacon to get everybody's taste buds going worked like a charm. Much better than getting ready to head to a resaurant for breakfast. We also had a small herd of caribou right outside our balcony one day eating grass which... More

We stayed in bachelor's suite in August 2014. It is one big room which is comfortable for a couple. It comes with a fully-furnished kitchen which was very convenient to use and a private bathroom. We had everything we needed and a helpful staff. The room was clean and the furnishing were basic. The bed was OK and the linens... More

Perfect place if you're staying with small children. We stay here every time we go to Banff for our Snowboarding trips and recently a stagette! Rooms are a bit dated but it suits the rustic/cabin-like feel for the presence of the hotel. Inside the lodge, we've stayed in the loft rooms where all the action is downstairs and the sleeping...

We (spouse and 2 kids and family) stayed at DFR for 6 nights in early August. We stayed in the executive suite in the older main building. As some have noted furnishings are older and scraped a bit, but we quickly accepted this as the spaces and recreational facilities (which grandkids loved!) met so well our needs. The dining area...

The resort was nice. Te waterslides were conveniently located by the cabins. They had lots of firewood and were never low. The pool was great. I loved how they had a waterslide and hot tub, and a seperate pool and hot tub. The place was quiet, and the kitchens were nice. It was very cozy. I would reccomend this hotel... More
