We didn't know what to suspect when we booked. Location was an easy walk to the center of town. Parking was available and free. Breakfast good. The room was very spacious and clean. The staff was okay, not super friendly. They have tourist information readily available.

Room was very small but clean. Suitable for just the 2 of you, however I wouldn't stay with our kids. A short walk to the main street area, which was nice. Breakfast was disappointing. There was nowhere to sit so we shared with another couple. It would have been nice to have some waffles or pancakes as an option. Not... More

Thank goodness we had a second day in Banff and another chance to make up for our first night. This cute little hotel, had everything the Banff Park Lodge didn't....parking, internet service and Continental Breakfast INCLUDED. I still don't understand why this can't be at every destination spot. We had fresh fruit, bagels, toast and cereal offered to us. We... More

For what they charge, you think you'll be serenaded by dancing girls with bottles of champagne. Not so much. Very basic room. Clean and quiet but bare. Continental breakfast was a joke. Raisin Bran, bagels and the world's crappiest coffee. Free WiFi, walking distance to town center. This area is expensive and if you're looking to save a few $$,... More

The room was so bad...very old and dated. So obvious that the owners have never reinvested in the property. Stayed there only because they had A/C but that barely worked. The only good thing was the location; it is a short walk to downtown Banff. THE CLINCHER WAS THAT THE MAID LEFT OUR DOOR OPEN. Thank goodness nothing was stolen... More

We originally chose this hotel for a holiday last year as it is opposite our son's house share and really convenient for visiting. We came back this year because we had such a lovely stay last year. The facilities are all that you could need - large comfy beds, fridge, aircon, free wifi, safe, large TV, tea and filter coffee... More

Positives: friendly and courteous staff, great location, mostly clean room, comfortable bed but squeeky Negatives: How much time and effort would it take to glue down the peeling wallpaper in bathroom? Also, to put in 4 light bulbs on the bathroom light bar that match? (one was burned out) Sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference. Breakfast... More

Stopped over night and enjoyed an awesome stay in Banff shopping, visiting and just enjoying the scenery. Parking is a condition that is hard to come by, but manageable with the aid of the night manager!! Walking distance to downtown and shops. Banff Ave. Brew pub was awesome and we met friends of ours there that we vacationed with in... More

Rooms are well maintained, staff are friendly, and it is only a five minute walk to centre of town. Have stayed twice and plan to return again. A good base for winter and summer holidays in Banff. Excellent!

A group of ladies and myself had a FANTASTIC time at this hotel in Banff. The very efficient, knowledgeable and courteous front desk staff set the standard. The room was very clean and modern with a coffee maker and a balcony with a gorgeous view of the mountains. The continental breakfast was exactly what we had hoped. We did not... More
