Cozy sport for a meal and drinks

This was our go to spot during our stay in the Banff Springs Hotel. It has a lot of cozy nooks and cranny's and some good views, if you can score one of the seats. We are not into big formal meals, and ate lunch and dinner here several times during our stay. The food was very good, not... read more

We came to this place since this was only place still serving food when we checked into the hotel late. We loved the cocktails. My husband ordered Black Diamond and I had Raspberry Mojito. Food was good. We ordered Indian chicken flat bread and french onion soup. Staff was very attentive and friendly, he gave us some recommendation where to... More

We came to the Rundle Lounge 3 times in a row. The setting is very nice. The service is very poor, no attention to detail whatsoever. Staff overwhelmed. The food and drinks were good.

Every table, chairs is different. Elegant place to have a drink at night, they close late. The menu is not that big, but it offers everything you need to be satisfied and is good food. Either you get a window view or not, the place is fantastic. High ceilings, elegant, but you can go as if you were going to... More

We weren't terribly hungry as we had had lunch the day we went. We each ordered the grilled cheese. and that is pretty much all we received - no garnish, no chips, no nothing. and this sandwich was not cheap, which in and of itself, doesn't bother me - it's a first class hotel and you know going in that...

We experienced the Rundle Lounge twice on our stay. After checking in we couldn't resist to find an intimate spot in this beautifully designed lounge. This lounge is perfect for large gathering or an intimate one. We felt relaxed from the moment we walked in and greeted at our table. There is something for everyone's pallet in the Rundle Lounge...

We had drinks and a meal in the Rundle Lounge after our 9 hour flight from the UK and found it a very comfortable and cosy place to be. Alcohol is a bit expensive but the pound/Canadian exchange rate helps. Good selection of beer and wine by the glass and the burger and club sandwich were great. The fries too... More

A wonderful lounge area, where you can grab a very reasonably priced cocktail, and a meal, or bar snack to go along with it. Children are permitted until 2100. Service is excellent, especially at the bar. Visited here a number of nights. You can bring your own board-game and settle into the comfortable lounges and enjoy the atmosphere.
