Nice property! Feels like you are in your own secluded area, yet so close to the main town. Very friendly staff and they were helpful in making suggestions for things to see and do in Banff. We had a mountain view room - spectacular views (yes, you do hear the cars on the hwy but no big deal). Room is... More

Really enjoyed the FANTASTIC view. Be sure to reserve a table by the window. Outside may be too loud (freeway noise). Our waiter was real nice; very friendly. The hand cut fries are wonderful. Burger is ok; BIG, but a bit dry for me. Salads are large enough to share, and VERY tasty.

The Juniper Hotel is only about 45 seconds off the Trans Canada Highway but offers privacy, panoramic views and quality accommodation and dining. The hotel is the home to a wonderful collection of aboriginal and western art and artifacts. The neutral colours and natural wood detailing in public areas allow the art to shine. Rooms are large and comfortable. No... More

The Juniper was located at the bottom of Norquay and right by the entrance to the Transcanada hwy and 5 minutes into downtown Banff. Our room was easily accessible and just down the hall from The Bistro. Excellent service in the latter whether it was drinks in the bar or for breakfast. The breakfast was delicious!

Stayed at this hotel as part of wedding celebrations. It has a beautiful patio overlooking the mountains with Banff Springs in the distance. Easy to access from the highway and would definitely visit again.

We travelled here the other year, and stayed in the mountain view room. First thoughts were that the room was a bit old, quite grey in colour but you got what you pay for. It was a hot day, so we took advantage of the A/C, however the noise that came from it was unreal, and we didn't get much... More

Hi James, Thanks for reviewing us! We have actually gone through quite a few changes since your stay last year! The AC units had an installation issue that has now been fixed and they all now run much quieter. We also have re-painted a lot of the hotel, including the 3 bedroom suite that you stayed in on your last... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for reviewing us. You did get it right, it is Mt. Rundle you can see from the south side of the hotel! I’m glad to hear you enjoyed your stay overall. Each room does have it’s own thermostat that works, however we suggest guests ask for assistance if they’re unsure of how to use our system. I’m... More

We have stayed at the Juniper several times and absolutely love it. It is well-appointed and has a luxury feel without the luxury prices. The hotel is tucked up on the ridge across Highway 1 from Banff, and offers amazing views of Banff, Mount Rundle, and Tunnel Mountain. The rooms are clean, spacious, and inviting, and the Juniper staff are... More

I booked a double panoramic view room for two nights at the beginning of July based on some recent rave reviews on tripadvisor. We arrived to a outdated room with a sour stench. We opened the doors and thought that fresh air might solve the problem. The room was clean but the furniture was really scratched up. The view was... More

Dear Guest, Thanks for taking the time to review us. I’m sorry your room was less than satisfactory. We were aware of the odor issue and had thought it was resolved until now.

I booked the Rundle Cabin at The Juniper as it offered a full kitchen, a private bedroom on the main floor and two queen sized beds in the loft. It also had a wood burning fireplace stocked with paper, kindling and an ample supply of dry wood. The cabin was beautiful, peacefully quiet and perfect for my father, my sister... More
