Stayed here on a whim to surprise my wife for our anniversary. It was a mini retreat, for a break and some peace and quiet. The Rundle suite is stunning. Upper level with open master room and jacuzzi tub for two :). fireplace and living area on the lower level add a romantic touch. Excellent room, and very friendly front... More

This hotel is a good spot to see banff from. It's a bit away from the main downtown, but only a 10 miniute walk. The rooms were modern, and free parking is a plus. The parking area fits a Ford F-150, which saved a ton of hassle trying to park on the street. The place could pay attention to some... More

This was a really nice place to stay, nothing special apart from the most awesome pool/spa that we have ever seen ,the kids loved it. A good walk to the town, and the keg restaurant on site is handy all in all a really nice hotel.

Stayed two nights in late September as part of a Rockies tour. Very comfortable room on the second floor - all usual (and comfortable) facilities. Felt immediately at home; staff friendly - indeed several seemed to be from UK - and relaxed atmosphere. Bar served very good mid-day lunches, whilst restaurant food was excellent, and reasonably priced. Latter very popular... More

Stayed here recently for two nights. The room was clean, bed comfortable and bathroom well-equipped (locally produced soap provided). My only complaint would be the room was a little on the small and dark side. The lodge has a coin-operated laundry facility which we utilised. It also has a free car-park for guests. It was nice to park the car... More

Would have given it a 5/5 however a piece of chewing gum was stuck on the comforter near the foot of the bed, and the shower head is far to low for a 6 foot tall man to shower. Bed was comfortable, clean otherwise. Pool was nice, clean, and surprisingly empty. The attached restaurant (The Keg) was great - food... More

I made my reservation a few month's in advance. The reservation staff was helpful when I made my reservation and again when I called a few weeks before my visit to confirm. I arrived on a busy Saturday afternoon and was told my room wasn't ready. I took the time to ride the Banff Gondola which was great. When I... More

We arrived in Banff early one evening and drove down Banff Avenue looking for accommodation. We were impressed by the appearance of the Caribou Lodge and inquired about availability. The price was right for three of us so we booked in. When we told the desk staff that my wife and I were accompanied by a German exchange student, we... More
