After a fantastic afternoon tea at Fairmont on Vancouver island myself and a friend thought we would have another afternoon tea whilst the husband's played golf. We booked three days in advance and requested one gluten free tea. We were informed this would not be a problem. On arrival it became clear that the gluten free message had not for... More

If you want to eat perfectly prepared food and have a fantastic view of the Canadian Rockies, you must visit the Rundle lounge for lunch or dinner. We ate a fish sandwich($18 and pricy but delivicious), baby green salad($14), and one of the best fish chowders I have ever tasted($12). We also had a fantastic(small portion but presented beautifully and... More

The fairmont hotels in the Canadian Rockies are landmarks. But most of us canny afford them for accommodations. All the travel books and blogs recommend going to the fairmonts for afternoon tea, but even that seems formal. (we are a family with 2 sons aged 5 and 9). But the best kept secret is LUNCH at their action restaurants -... More

We had lunch here one day and it was special. We ate outside and had a great table with a wonderful view. All of the tables have a wonderful view. The staff is friendly and very efficient. Our server, Davis, was so agreeable and took photos of our group (with multiple cameras)! The food was good. We split burgers and... More

After walking Banff we returned to The Banff Springs hotel hot and thirsty. We found the Rundle Lounge. The furniture was very and our drinks were great.

We visited twice, the room is spacious with a fantastic view to the river and the Rockies. Our waiter on the second visit was a bit 'over the top'! He seemed insincere. Food average to good.

We ate here several times. The pub food was delicious. We had their homemade ginger ale. It was amazing. It was a relaxed atmosphere with no pressure to hurry up.

The view from the lounge (especially the patio) is untouchable! And Fairmont's signature cocktails are delicious. The food was excellent, but the menu could stand to offer more selection (I believe there were approximate 5-7 items on the food menu). If you are in Banff you need to go here even if it is only for 1 drink!

We dined in the patio on a noon for lunch. The menu options was only burger for a vegetarian. It was alright, nothing great but the view compensated it. We walked to the bow falls from inside the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the walk.
