Stayed here for 3 nights whilst travelling through Rockies. Hotel smelt lovely and welcoming with wood fire. Rooms very small with 2 beds. Not much hanging space at all and no real room for cases to be kept and accessed for clothes. We had a room to front which was quite light but our friends were at the back and... More

Reception staff (from Scotland) very helpful indeed - solved all our problems with a smile. Room was not spacious but adequate. Sheets crisp and clean. Loads of really hot water in the bathroom; thick towels. Massive air conditioning vent blew noisily into the corridor all night, luckily we were further away. Visited in May, and it snowed. great log fire... More

Banff is probably the greatest place that Alberta has to offer. Pubs, restaurants and the people are a breathe of fresh mountain air. Stay in the downtown area, go to the Grizzly House and eat some delicious fudge.

After pulling back the covers to crawl into bed I noticed tiny black specks on our sheets. I called the front desk and the sent room service to take care of it. He came and looked then left and came back with gloves on and changed the sheets. I didn't sleep well because I was wondering what it was. Also... More

Whilst this hotel is 15 minutes walk from centre of downtown it is a pleasant walk but a bonus ball is hotels at this end of the Main Street issue free bus passes for guests so you save the $2 each way trip ($1 for over 65's). Quiet with good sleep quality it has pleasant (caribou) related decor which is... More

The room was very clean and very comfortable, the decor was tasteful with a few whimsical touches with the caribou theme evident in nearly every space. The huge beautiful relaxing hot pool is a must for every visitor and the spa and their well trained staff made our mini vacation much more enjoyable and relaxing. From the front desk to... More

My partner and I looked forward to a two day getaway after many weeks of long working days. We poked around internet hotel sites and came up with this one which claims to be four star. Even with the internet rate it was not cheap (king standard) and considering it is the shoulder season here, we expected a nicer room.... More

After a horrible hotel in Lake Luoise we arrived at Banff Caribou Lodge & Spa with no reservation at 8 pm. The australian young lady in the front desk find us a room, at a great price. Eventhough the hotel was full it was quiet, clean and comfortable. I wish I could remember the name of the lady on the... More

Have you ever stayed in a hotel that had a caribou head in the bathroom? The caribou theme is everywhere and it's actually quite charming. Our room was small but not cramped and the bathroom had modern features. The hotel amenities included a beautiful jetted pool and an on-site Keg Restaurant. Hotel staff gave us a free pass for the...
