Stayed here with y family for two nights. The price was around 70€ per night from Hotwire, but normal price wouldn't have been much higher. On arrival, service was good, out of the few people working in the reception most were helpful and professional, the rest pretty laid back. Ok for a hotel like this I guess :) Room was... More

This hotel looked a bit used but it was very clean, the beds were comfortable. It is close to downtown to walk (5-10min) and to other activities and things to see in the area. We had some difficulties with the shower-- we always had to wait a view minutes (3-5min) until the water had heaten up. We didn´t try the... More

I stayed for a weekend in March and found it a very nice affordable accommodation in Banff. The beds are very clean and comfortable. The rooms are a decent size as well and all had fridges which is always a plus. The one problem with the room was it was close to the stairwell in the middle of the hallway... More

This place was perfect for a weekend getaway! Clean rooms and hospitable service combined with a great continental breakfast provided a wonderful experience for us while in Banff. Walking distance to everything downtown as well!

Stayed here over the St. Paddy's day weekend (March 16-17th, 2013). It's an older hotel, but the rooms were clean and the beds were nice. The room had all expected amenities (big TV, fridge, microwave, coffee maker). The hotel pool was nice and warm, and the double hot tubs meant there was always room to warm up! The free continental... More

We stayed at the High Country Inn on March 30, 2013 in Banff. The lobby was plain but it had some comfortable leather furniture. The hallways were dated but clean. Our hotel room was very clean with a large flat screen tv, mini fridge and coffee maker. The beds were extremely comfortable with duvets. The bathroom looked like it had... More

I will start off by saying the only positive thing we experienced, was the location of the room. I had bought a team buy deal for 79 dollars for the night, thought it was a good deal and why not try it out. I called in January to book our night in March. In February I called again to see... More

We had a terrible stay at the High Country Inn, in Banff Alberta in October 2012 from Oct 25-28, 2012. First to start with our arrival, we checked in and the front desk clerk Jeff took a look at our vehicle and said to pull around to the right of the hotel to pull into there underground parking. So we... More

Thank you for your review. It was unfortunate that your SUV roof rack was damaged in our underground parking, we expressed our sympathy in regards to this; but the decision of the claim was that of the insurance company (there was no police report filled out, only the exchange of insurance information). The judgement of a vehicles height should not... More

When we first saw the hotel were we a little worried but as I say do not judge a book by its cover. The front desk were great. The room we had was large clean and very well prepared and decorated. The pool larger than most and with views up to the mountains. Two great hot pools and plentiful basic... More
