We spent three nights there during a recent trip to the national park(s). When booking we paid an extra because we wanted to have a room with a view. Well that´s what we got - the downside was that it was a tiny window (the only one in the room) and overlooked a nearby park. Not exactly what we expected... More

We stayed at the Caribou Lodge from 15th to 17th July and perhaps our only regret is that we didnt stay longer. The Hotel has a very traditional and warm, welcoming feel. Unfortunately the Bar Tender had a bit of an attitude however, which prevented me from leaving the traditional 10-15% tip, but other than this gripe, if you have... More

Beautiful lobby, and building exterior. Spa is very nice as well. Rooms are not comfortable. The bathroom has more living space then the bedroom. Bed totally uncomfortable. Looks liked the renovated everything, but the rooms.

I sepnt 11 nights here with my family for a skiing vacation. The Hotel has a great location on the main road about 10 minutes walk to Banff Centre, great to walk back after a meal downtown. It is also well situated for the ski bus, as the Caribou is the second stop after it leaves the Inns of Bannf.... More

It's a nice hotel about 15 min walk from the busiest part of downtown Banff. Room decoration is simple, but rooms are comfortable. Service is efficient but not exactly welcoming: you're just another tourist for them. At least that was my impression during my check-in. Computers with internet access are available but you have to pay (you pay directly in... More

We travelled to Canada in April 09 to get married in a Heli-Wedding just outside Canmore. Having stayed at the Caribou Lodge on a few occassions before I really couldn't think of a better, more relaxed hotel to stay at in the area. In fact it was Jim, the Front of House Manager, that originally gave me the idea of... More

The Caribou Lodge is grouped with the other main tourist hotels about a 10 min walk from central Banff, or use the complimentary pass provided by the hotel on the frequent bus service. If you have a car, there is complimentary parking in the underground garage, and free parking all over the town. The lobby at the Caribou is huge,... More

We had travelled to Canada to meet up with out daughter who lives there and had mixed results with other hotels in Jasper and Lake Louise - my daughters reaction when entering the Hotel was - well this is more like it! And it only got better, very pleasant young man offered to upgrade our room for 25$ a night,... More

It is located in the main street of Banff but in a quiet position. The hotel is very comfortable, especially the room and the wide bathroom. The breakfast is very good; with a wide choose of fresh salads, fruits as well as warm dishes. The staff is very kind, giving also suggestions how to spend time in Banff. To notice... More

The Caribou lodge is a great hotel in almost all ways. We stayed in a very nice twin room with two very comfortable queen size beds, but be warned there is not a great deal of storage space especially if skiing with a family. Only two drawers and a small area with hangers ! Dont let that put you off... More
