Great if you plan ahead

We knew we were coming for the weekend so made reservations for Sunday Brunch - they have such an amazing selection - there is definitely something for everyone. The staff is friendly and they don't rush you out. Another must do, if you plan ahead!

We ate breakfast several mornings as we were staying here for a conference. The Chinook breakfast is very good and the omelets are very good. Some of the servers are very nice and friendly and some just are not. Coffee was not very good, tasted a bit burned. The views are very nice with a whole wall of windows on... More

We were there for the Oktoberfest Special, which was a good deal at $25. Excellent food and good dessert too. Beer prices were also very reasonable for a hotel.

Your typical bacon, hash browns etc in warming trays. Made to order omelets. Then you come to the center table and find smoked salmon, crab legs, steamed salmon, breads, cheeses. THEN you have Chocolate Fondu! Yes, this is the best brunch in town.

They put out a nice spread for Sunday brunch. Extensive selection of cheeses, fruit, salads, smoked fish, omelet bar. So, why the low rating? I sat forever waiting for wait staff to bring over coffee. Finally I gave up and just went to get food. I ate and piled up dishes to return for 2nd course. The dishes were still... More

My mother and father in-law organized a rehersal dinner in the room at the Chinook restaurant. The communicaiton before the evening was excellent. We had a menu with two or three items for each course of our meal. We had about 25 of us and were expecting to have the large table so we could share stories and have great... More

This is the first time that I have visited Banff, but now let be known that every time I comeback to this city, I must stop at this place. We showed up for Sunday brunch without a reservation, and the place was packed, thankfully the brunch manager had us seated in no less than 5 minutes. On top of all... More

The food was high quality and service was speedy. We were able to lookout the window and had fabulous light during a Sunday supper en route home from Golden. Banff Park Lodge has some of the best food in the Bow Valley.

Whenever we visit Banff we always like to make the Chinook part of our family experience. The kids enjoy the Sunday Brunch because they can sample so many delectable items as well as the standard fare. We adults always find the choices very much to our liking. The many hot items, carving bar, seafood choices and amazing desserts are pleasing... More
