The room was small and a bit dated but was clean. The bathroom was large and clean.The reception area was nice. There is no swimming pool just a giant hot tub. We were woken in the early hours by tour groups leaving, they insisted on talking at the top of their voices. Then the cleaning staff made a lot of... More

We stayed there early in August for a couple of nights as part of our drive through Western Canada. Easy to find on Banff avenue, very helpful reception staff, easy underground parking and pleasant ambience. A real bonus having a Keg restaurant on site which also does very good breakfast. It may not be the cheapest but it does serve... More

My family and I arrived in Banff and found the Caribou Lodge and Spa and were checked in efficiently. We went up to our room and immediately found that it was not air conditioned, but had a fan. We went out to dinner and when we returned, I tried the fan. It was unidirectional and I thought we would need... More

Our superior room was rather dark, the rooms seem to be long and narrow with quite small windows. We had requested mountain view but they did not acknowledge this and initially gave us a road facing room which was quite noisy. Complained and were moved to side room which was a bit quieter. Hotel has a lovely lobby with open... More

Stayed here on the first night of our trip - the entrance to the hotel is very welcoming and has a good feel about it. The reception staff were very attentive and had time to interact with us, providing very good information on the surrounding area and how to access it - good first impression is very important to me!!...

We stayed here for two nights before boarding the Rocky Mountaineer Railway. The hotel is situated just outside the town centre. About a 15 minute slow walk. There is a regular bus service with a stop very near the hotel. The hotel has a small but well appointed pool, sauna and fitness centre. Our room was opposite the spa that... More
