It was nice to thank Johnston Canyon for their help and great service and kindness to us. As we had a long trip to recover from we were glad the cabin was colourful and nicely maintained. The food in the restaurant was fine too. They also had a fall special on in the gift shop that gave us at least... More

Lovely option. Great beds for comfort. The sliding windows are classic and interesting. The check in procedures were efficient and thorough. It was interesting to observe the change in weather as it appears it can change quickly.. but the weather was pretty good and the surroundings are a nice getaway if you want to get into the nature. They have... More

There was firewood that did not cost us anything so that was good. The front desk staff were prompt and friendly, no complaints ,, The restaurant and giftshop are... More

The service was very pleasant and the prices reasonable for the area. The  cabin we had was very nicely located. It was the Classic Pilot Bungalow with vaulted ceilings. It would be lovely to have an extra set of pillows and blankets. Other than that it was all very nice and cool to see the Pilot mountain. It looks a bit... More

Lovely lighting not the usual dim stuff. The location is very central and allowed us easy access to Banff and Lake Louise and all the staff.... very friendly. I could have used an extra pillow and we may suggest instructions on getting the refrigeration to get cooler. Our cabin was also in a good location in the resort. Quiet and... More

It was a lovely stay. Less rain would be the only thing that would have made it better but we were not there very long. The weather we understand is generally very good and sunny. It is nice to have so much daylight too. Our cabin location was very convenient to all the major sights in the area. Would like... More

We had a wonderful time and loved our cabin. The staff were friendly. We are not coffee drinkers but when we asked for a kettle it was provided promptly. We could have used an extra table in the bathroom other than that it was great. Thanks

Overall it was very lovely and friendly staff. Beautiful cabin and location Could have used some more pillows and some more direction of where to go for points of interest. The location of the resort is great and offers some spectacular views during the daylight hours. Wildlife was also in the vicinity. Nice change.

Everything was provided and was simply wonderful. Good food and good value. The staff were very helpful and friendly with our inquiries. We did not know the area very well. We did not have any complaints and plan to come back in the spring. The reception was also excellent and very welcoming as they offered good directions and advice what... More
