This is a time share resort that has fallen into bankruptcy twice since 1989 and appears that it may be there again. Our unit has no functioning screen on the walkout deck therefore, we can't open the door and let fresh mountain air in because the bugs (mostly mosquitoes) are numerous. There is a thermostat on the wall but there... More

Everything about this place is wrong. The customer service isn't very good, management is near to nothing and the resort is also very low grade. I don't mind rustic and retro. But old, warn down and dirty is not my cup of tea and that is all this place is. Don't go here expecting much.

The location is spectacular the cabins lovely, guest services terrible. My family booked two cabins for a week about two months in advance. We are five adults and five kids two of whom are toddlers. A week before we were to arrive we were notified that due to a problem with water damage in some of the cabins we would... More

With the exception of the one front desk staff the checked us in, our experience with the 3 others left little to be desired. I had to go into the office to ask a question. The young man was playing on his cell phone. He looked up (barely), to answer me. He was not helpful at all, and quickly went... More

The timeshare has been through alot of changes & problems. It has taken alot of work on the part of the management & executive to get it back up to par as original executive (back in 1998) had let it go & cheated the timeshare. I have to applaud the present management & executive in all the work they have... More

Even though this resort sits all alone, a bit off the beaten track just outside of town, that may be an advantage rather than a detriment. It's quiet, serene, and peaceful, and being up on the hillside provides great views of the mountains. It takes only ten or fifteen minutes to drive into town (Canmore) and there is a lot... More

We come to this place with our family between Christmas and New Year regularly. We had 3 units for our family and enjoyed our stay. The front desk service was friendly and helpful, maintenance was prompt in taking care of an issue in one of the chalets. We were very disappointed that the hot tub was not operational as that...

Banff Gate Mountain Resort is an excellent vacation spot. Just 10 minutes from Banff National Park, one can enjoy the beauty of the mountain setting. You are close to Canmore where you can enjoy the Nordic Center or enter the National Park and enjoy skiing at Lake Louise. The chalets at the resort are comfortable and offer a spacious home... More

Just spent two nights there - there were 9 of us sharing two cabins. The 150.00 per night per unit was a bargain, given that we were a ten minute drive from Canmore and 25 from Banff. Never felt crowded. Our unit had new carpet and curtains, and newer furnishings. Kitchen had all the basics. Fixtures are dated, but clean... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Banff Gate Mountain Resort is an outdoor playground for all ages where mountain activities and rustic amenities meet. It is nestled in the majestic pines of Pigeon Mountain at the foot of the Lougheed and Windtower Mountains. Our 46 fully appointed chalets are surrounded by Lake Louise and the adventures of the Banff National Park. Activities include water rafting, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, dog sledding, golf and more. For those preferring more peace and quiet, the picturesque grounds of the resort provide the perfect retreat. Children’s play areas are intertwined by hiking trails that sprawl throughout the resort connecting to the surrounding wilderness. Local wildlife often wanders unhindered throughout the area and across the property. An indoor heated pool, hot tubs and a family clubhouse provide a well-rounded travel destination for families and adventurers alike. ... more   less
