Perfect location on banff ave, minutes walk into town. Rooms are well furnished and maintained and the staff hold a high level pride in their work. Overall it was a pleasant stay. The front desk staff were exceptionally helpful, with the blonde girl upfront going above and beyond! The cleaning staff were always attentive for your needs whether it be... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting this hotel and LOVED it! The room was very clean! It looked to be newly renovated and was tastefully decorated. The staff were very friendly and helpful! We were able to relax and unwind and will definitely be going back! I highly recommend this hotel.

The room was spacious but the bathroom was not very clean. Staff was extremely friendly. Breakfast was very basic, plenty but a bit boring. We liked the location of the hotel and the underground parking is very handy in winter time.

Good location as could walk into Banff. Underground parking so very secure. Rooms were a little dark in decor for my taste but were comfortable and clean. Bathroom sink was not in the actual bathroom but in a vanity unit in the room which was a bit of a nuisance. Rooms on the back are quiet. Hotel has a nice... More

Drove through Banff looking for accommodation and settled on High Country Inn and so pleased we did. Rates were great, staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Great stopover in Banff. Would definitely stay here again.

Although the rooms appear a bit dated, the hotel itself was good and clean. Hotel was a 2-3 minute mall from the beginning of the strip, the free continental breakfast was simple, but was very filling. We went during the week, so there was nobody in the swimming pool so it was nice to have the entire area to ourselves.

The good news: great location, clean, very nice pool and hot tubs(two with different temps) overlooking Banff Ave., connected to Ticino restaurant(excellent food) and only a door down from El Toro restaurant(see review). pleasant staff, good price. Bad news: the... More

Spent 4 days here in October, good location just 2 blocks from the centre of the town and good size rooms. However, it appears to be run by a wide range of part time staff/students and nobody appears to be in charge. Breakfast nice but basic, cereal, bagels, cinnamon toast, fruit the biggest down side is the breakfast staff have... More

Our kitchen staff work very hard to... More
