In Banff again, this time for a family christening, we happily returned to the Fife Lodge. The weather was awful but the hotel is welcoming, warm and cosy with a charming old world country house feel. Good food, varied menu and very friendly staff and also dog friendly - a great bonus. Sadly the family connection is soon to be... More

We stayed at The Fife Lodge hotel at the end of February. Our daughter and baby were surprising her hubby who is currently working nearby. We opted not to stay in the same hotel so that we all had a weekend away. The Fife Lodge is a fabulous hotel. Warm, welcoming and just so relaxing and peaceful! The staff are... More

The food was decent, the service reasonable and overall the stay not bad. My only gripe would be with the water pressure. I like a decent hot power shower and this room... More

Looking for some lunch, we came upon this hotel by chance when visiting Banff. It was a jewel. Apart from the dining room being beautifully furnished and decorated, the food was excellent with a good choice of dishes and separate vegetarian and children's menus. The service was friendly and efficient and our 10 year old guest was treated with kindness... More
