We have been travelling to Banff to ski for about 12 years and have stayed at the Caribou 3 times previously. We have tried other hotels in Banff (all are mainly good) but the Caribou seems to have that little bit extra. Reception area is fantastic with a large fire, comfortable seats and a good supply of newspapers and information... More

Second trip to Banff and just as beautiful as i remember! I actually wanted to stay at The Fox, but they were booked out (6 months in advance!!!!! So if you're coming during the summer you may want to consider 8 - 9 months in advance!) so i chose this place as my second preference. After a shuttle ride from... More

Have stayed here twice, both times travelling from the UK for a ski / snowboarding trip. Both experiences have been wonderful. On arrival, we went for a drink and some food in the attached Keg bar and restaurant, and the waiter (same guy as the year before) suggested a tall glass of water to rehydrate following the 8.5 hour flight...

On our first trip to Canada we risked a budget hotel and we couldn't have been more pleased with it. The staff were so friendly and approachable and anything you asked them for they couldn't wait to provide. The Hotel was always spotlessly clean yet we never actually saw anyone cleaning - even better and the beds are the comfiest... More

We stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights and we loved every minute of it. Heated underground parking is free, free wireless internet and we also loved the free Bus pass. It is a 10 minute walk to downtown Banff or you can take the bus ( you get a free bus pass during your stay). We would often walk... More

It was a treat to get a real room key, rather than the unpredictable pass cards. The room was clean and nice, even for a generic hotel room. The beds were glorious pillow tops - very soft and comfy. Loads of pillows. Shower was awesome as well...worked great. I didn't realize that anyone could use the pool...I thought it was... More

Just returned from 3 nights at Caribou in Banff. The rooms are modestly furnished, but the beds are very comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. The spa and steam room are wonderful and we found the staff to be friendly and helpful in finding certain attractions in the area. Will absolutely stay here on next visit. Thanks again to... More
