We stayed at the Douglas Fir for 3 nights in December 2013. We enjoyed our stay. Very peaceful and quiet. Loved the fireplace. We sat in front of the fire every evening. The resort supplies all the firewood you need. The rooms are somewhat dated but too badly. Its nice to have a kitchen to make some of our own... More

Last saturday we had a break in into our room from a staff member. He treat us very bad and threat us with the police. I called today to complain, but the lady wasn't very nice either. She just protect her staff and she believed in his version. Don't go there, for that price you can get a lot better.

Fit 7 people comfortably, had wifi and cable, a little shop, water slide, fitness centre, barbecue . Furniture was quite outdated and wasn't in the best shape. Otherwise didn't matter too much since we were in town most of the time.

I have had two stays at the Douglas Fir chalets and the second time round in winter with young under fives. I think that the indoor playpen is great, a brilliant facility that the kids enjoy. The pools are good too. Tunnel mountain is a wonderful location and the huge side wall of Mt Rundle is incredible. the downside to... More

Waterpark: The Resort has an indoor waterpark with two giant waterslides, a hot tub and kiddie pool. The waterpark is free for registered guests and at $20 per person to drop in for the day, you definitely want to be a hotel guest! There's also a separate swimming pool for those staying at the hotel that is not open to... More

We had a very enjoyable stay in Banff last week. We booked chalet #116 and it was awesome! Very small, but cozy, warm and fun with the deer coming right up to the door. It's not a 4 Star resort and I guess it's all a result of your expectations. The cleanliness of the chalet depends on your level of... More

My family and I have been coming here for a couple of years. When we went in the beginning of December the temperature was -45*C . That didn't matter much. We had all kinds of activities to keep our 4 and 6 year old happy and burning energy all day long. Indoors was the place to be and that is... More

Kids had fun at the water slides and indoor playground. Free bus passes were convenient. Front staff was friendly However, does not make up for how dirty and run down the place is. Outlets were loose, thought the lamp was unplugged and when I went to plug it in behind the bed was met by a large amount of nasty... More

Have stayed here previously, however this particular time, the room was outdated. Mattress and sofa was very old. Am a fit, healthy 30 something and left with a sore back. Would NOT recommend or consider going back unless it was remodelled and refurnished top to bottom. Kitchen was also outdated. No decent cooking utensils. Dish soap was watered down. Mouthwash...

We stayed November 2013 in a 2 bedroom chalet. Lovely view of Mount Rundle, free parking, quiet chalet. Fireplace was a nice touch. Only one water slide was working and they need to enforce that parents needs to take their shoes off on deck. We ended up trying to avoid the dirt and mud people were tracking. Overall we would...
