The blurb on the Banff Springs hotel website claims that the hotel changed hands 4 years ago and has gone through a massive refurbishment since then. I never knew the old Banff Springs - other than this rather industrial looking edifice on the very outskirts of Banff - so can't comment on what it was like before. Some things haven't... More

The staff are a credit to the hotel. We had a lovely room, it was excellent value for a dinner, bed and breakfast, and the dinner is well worth staying onside for. wifi speeds were well above average, which is an asset.

Just back from a lovely meal here with friends. Really nice decor and the food was excellent. We had the platter so share for dessert which was just amazing too. Staff all lovely and friendly. Would definitely recommend this for lovely surroundings and great views too.

We have stayed at the Banff Springs on numerous occasions over the past 40 years as my husband has relatives in the area. It is certainly the best hotel in the area, although we have also been pleased with guest house accommodation. This visit, we were pleased to see that it had been refurbished. It had looked tired and old... More

We stayed for one night and were delighted to find our favorite hotel firmly back on form after the disaster that was McIver Hotels a few years ago. The rooms are very clean, modern and comfortable, and it's clear there has been a big investment by the new owners in the last couple of years. As always, the staff were... More

Stayed here recently with my wife on a combined business / jolly trip for one night. Modern hotel , very clean and warm. Hotel is situated on a slight hill meaning the front rooms have very good sea views, so worthwhile booking a sea view, although the road noise is a consideration. On arrival the smell of gloss paint upstairs... More

My niece booked my wife and I in for my wife's 60th birthday meal treat. Stunning! We didn't stay in the hotel but everything about it spoke of high customer care levels. Food was outstanding and matched the venue.

Booked in to stay over for a function in the hotel. Welcome was very good and a swift check in. Room was spacious and clean even though we looked over houses view of the sea could still be seen which was nice even though it was a wild day. Breakfast was well presented and staff pleasant. I would stay here... More

We usually stay here on Christmas night whilst visiting friends for Dinner and have done so for the past few years, and every time it gets better. This year we noted that they have added a new Dining room which is lovely, along with a patio area at the front for the summer months. We did not eat here apart... More

Had to stay for a few nights on business. Rooms are spotlessly clean with nice decor. Beds were comfy. I'd recommend a sea view room as the view is truly lovely. Free wifi as well. The restaurant is of a really good standard too. It has an extensive menu, which usually puts me off, but there really was something for... More
