Overall - This should be a must see for every traveler visiting Banff. Good - The sight of this hotel is breathtaking. It is strategically built that the back of the hotel overlooks the lake and the Rockies, take pictures in the balcony if it is open (it was closed when we went). We enjoyed a brunch in the Rundle...

This is the second time I've been to Rundle for tea, and it was another great experience. The food and tea were delicious and the setting could not have more stunning. As far as tea services go, I thought the value was just right (especially when considering similar services in London go for $80/person and a much worse service at... More

I would have loved to spend more time here. The atmosphere was perfect. The views of the mountains are amazing. At $16 - $18 for a drink though, we only stayed for one.

We had drinks and appetizers here for dinner two nights. The service is great. You must try the rootbeer glazed beef tenderloins. They were delicious! A bonus was watching it snow while we relaxed in this beautiful lounge.

$31 for a 7oz glass of a Beringer Cab Sav doesn't make up for the outstanding views...... perhaps the Fairmont chain will figure out some new pricing options to make this more palatable for the customers.
