Have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Banff staying at the Caribou Lodge & Spa. I would recommend this hotel to anyone for the first class service and facilities including the Keg restaurant. The steaks here are without doubt the best I've ever eaten! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff in all areas. It was a little... More

This was my first time skiing in Canada and although the flight from UK took 8.5 hours with a 2 hour bus transfer the whole experience was fantastic. All three ski resorts in Banff were in a league of there own, beating Europe hands down for snow conditions and staff welcoming, if you can’t ski in Canada you'll never will.... More

The staff was very welcoming and the hotel was in a perfect location. We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms which was very nice as well. The bed was comfortable and had great pillows and the shower was great too! The food at The Keg was amazing. We were really hungry when we arrived and our food was... More

We’ve skied Banff region for the first time now, and we are going back! It’s taken me three weeks to surface after our holiday there. The Caribou lodge was more than adequate. We were worried about the distance out of town, it was no problem. There is a sophisticated free bus service that takes you the 5 minute trip every... More

We just loved it here! They were doing renovations during our stay but made us aware of it so it was no problem at all. I can't want to go back and see the updated rooms! Gorgeous lobby.

the food... the service...the decor....friendliness....the spa! everything about Caribou Lodge is a cut above what we've seen at most hotels. i wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when I go to Banff.

Pros: The hotel was great - walking distance into town (although it is one of the furthest away). The staff were always very helpful. Breakfast was good - the option for the buffet if you were in rush to get out to catch the ski buses. Bathroom/room very clean, plenty of amenities and towels. Nearby to local restaurants- you must... More

My family and i have just returned from a weeks stay at the Caribou lodge. This is the third time my wife and have stayed, and the first for my 12yr old daughter. The lobby area is cosy and welcoming, the large fire is a joy having stepped in from the cold. The front desk staff were friendly. We stayed... More
