We attended a reunion here. The desk staff were very helpful. The Keg restaurant offered a very good breakfast for us. The room was fine but the bathroom had some peculiar features around which we worked. We slept with an open window which provided a nice clean smell and feel.

Nicely presented hotel on the edge of Banff. Good parking and a nice touch is the free pass for the local bus. If you want to be be within easy walking distance of central Banff you might want to try one of the numerous alternatives that are closer.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Banff Caribou Lodge & Spa. We didn't get to try out the spa, but the restaurant was quite good, although the service could be spotty (slow at times). We rode our motorcycles over 2,000 miles to get to the Lodge and were greeted warmly upon our arrival. Our room was a... More

The hotel is very nice and clean. The staff was great. My only complaint is that there is no A/C. Normally, it wouldn't be needed, but we happened to be there during an unseasonably warm weekend. Thankfully, we were able to sleep with the window open, which was quite nice.

I went to Calgary for business and decided to go to Banff for a day of skiing. The ride up to Banff is breathtaking. I advise to drive down before sunset to catch an even better glimpse of the Rockies and the background as the sun sets. I stayed at the Caribou Lodge (recommended from a friend) which was on...

Inspired by reviews I read here, we booked this hotel for September 7 and 8, 2011, paying a supplement for a "superior" room. We were assigned to room 418, which was tiny--the size room usually reserved for tour guides or tour group members who book a single room. I asked to be moved to a larger room, and was promptly...

It's never easy to read a review from a guest who we let down. In this circumstance, I have the opportunity to communicate with the guest directly and my response is directed to readers considering future stays. I was able to confirm many of the issues reported in this room and have repaired them - the room should not have... More

The Banff Lodge is a beautiful place to spend the night at. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was nice, but a lack of AC made for a very hot night. The Keg is an amazing restaurant and would recommend that everyone try their steaks.

We stayed in December for 6 nights and after a 10 hr flight from London and 2 hour drive from Calgary it was worth it arriving in the snow lit caribou lodge. The staff were so friendly and the keg is a great bar to grab a steak. Love the town of Banff and will definitely return.
