Delicious tea with a GREAT view!

We were looking forward to our tea in Banff our entire trip and it didn't disappoint. That said, the service was a little slow because there was only one server - although there were other servers around who did some clearing and simple prep tasks. We had put money in the meter for 2 hours and my... read more

After an adventurous walk to find this dining room (is it upstairs or downstairs; is it part of the other restaurant adjacent to it, since there is no wall or demarcation?). Self seating, there was only one table left in what seemed like a converted hallway. Great view of the two pillars that contain a standard hallway. But, got great... More

The Rundle Lounge is located in the Banff Springs Hotel and offers lovely views of the valley from both the lounge and the attached terraces. It was too cold whilst we were there to spend long on the terrace, so we ate inside. There are a range of seating options for those wanting to eat or just relax with a... More

Love the different areas and types of seating throughout the lounge. Service was great, but I would have expected my $20 turkey club sandwich to have fresh turkey, not sandwich meat, and real cheese not the processed crap they slap in cheap burgers. My yam fries were limp and without the usual chipotle sauce or equivalent that you usually have... More

This is the main cocktail lounge for the hotel. It is 2 stories, has live music on weekends (acoustic), serves very nice drinks and also has wonderful views of the mountians.

we went for a drink and added simple sandwich for lunch. The sandwiches were a great success as we shared a 'Turkey club' between two and it was good and plentiful. We all agreed however that to serve 9 oz glass of wine by simply pouring into glass with no measure was not good system. Non of us were clear... More

This is a nice little lounge with a variety of chairs and tables. Some have a nice view of the mountains. Service is very good: friendly young waitstaff, typically trained by Fairmont. Portions were good and the price not ridiculous. We tried a number of appetizers and found them all good. In particular, their french onion soup was amazing and... More

After traveling for six hours to get to Banff, I was ready for a beer. The excellent front door staff recommended Rundles. We were fortunate to get a seat close to the back windows. Even though the place had every table filled and many, many tourists meandering through, the wait staff completed their tasks easily.
