Stayed here for four nights during a tour of the Rockies. Our room was clean and comfortable but was on the lower ground floor so we had an eye level view of the street - no mountain views here! Also was opposite the Spa so was quite noisy. Location of the hotel is reasonable but it is one of the... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Reception area was very inviting and spacious, with a big log fire to welcome you. Most Reception staff were helpful and friendly. Room was OK, but didn't feel particularly special for a Superior room. (Was it just bigger?). For a 4*, we feel there should have been a safe in the room instead of having to... More

This is a lovely hotel. I found the staff to be very helpful and nice. The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk outside of Banff on the main road. The town has alot of road works at the moment so its good to be outside a bit. The hotel has a lovely restaurant which is very nice for Breakfast... More

Together with my family (total of four people, including 2 teenage children) we spent a total of three nights at the Banff Caribou Lodge, in August 2007. The hotel building is pleasant. In particular the lobby is nice (with lots of wood),. The room, even though not new and not particulalrly spacious, was always well maintained and clean and thus... More

This was the most disappointing hotel of our trip. After reading the reviews I was expecting a very good hotel. I was greeted at the front desk by the most unfriendliest of young ladies. She could barely manage a smile and checked us in without a single word. She simply gave me a key and told me the room number,... More

We were booked here by our travel agent. We had a very nice room with big comfortable beds....but with only a table top fan to cool the air it was very warm. The location is good as it is just a short walk into the centre. We found a couple of the reception staff rather off-hand though there was a... More

This is the second visit my wife and I have had to the Caribou Lodge. This time we stayed for two weeks. We were not disappointed! There were many staff there who remembered us from our first visit in July 2006. They could not have been more helpful in advising us on places to visit and what to see. Because... More
