The High Country Inn is one of a group of moderately-priced hotels along Banff Avenue in this popular tourist town of 8000 in Alberta's Rocky Mountains. Built about 30 years ago, this inn is close to the shopping, dining/drinking, and entertainment areas of Banff without being right in the centre of the "action". The rooms in the High Country are...

I stayed at this hotel for three days earlier this month. The hotel is in a great location in central Banff, short walk to shops and restaurants. The room was a tad dated, but the beds and television appeared to be new. There was a balcony and the wifi signal was great. We had a hire car, so the underground... More

High Country is a nice clean hotel in a good location on Banff Avenue. It is an easy walk to restaurants and shopping which is a convenient option as parking downtown can be challenging. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

We arrived to stay for a week, from a friend's recommendation, but ended up staying 3 weeks. Why move from such a great location - a short walk to the shops, tourist attractions, bus out the front & tour pick ups at the front door. All staff were so friendly, welcoming, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Loved the... More

We have stayed at High Country on several occasions and will continue to do so. It is a comfortable, very clean, well maintained, family run business. The staff is extra helpful and friendly. The breakfast room is always clean and is perfect for a little breakfast before heading out skiing for the day. Not fancy, but has everything you need.... More

Keeping it short and to the point: -The staff were awesome -The room was great, especially for the price -Having hot tubs so accessible is great -Included breakfast is decent, but having cold boiled eggs and a sign that says 'No eggs in the microwave' kind of sucks -The wifi in our room was bad, but good in the lobby

Well situated hotel ( 5 min walk from central Banff ). Friendly staff and decent size rooms. You get what you pay for and this hotel represents good value for money in a town that capitalises on tourism. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise.. Decent variety and plenty of tables.. Good fruit, cereals and hot dishes.. The absolute bonus here was... More
