“Great place to stay in Banff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

My family recently stayed here and had a great experience. The front desk staff were very friendly and answered all our questions about places to eat,etc. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was completely full during our stay,but we didn`t hear any noise at all. We also liked the fact that we were close enough to downtown Banff that we were in walking distance,but far enough that we were away from the hustle and bustle. The hotel has a hot tub and restaurant. We didn`t use either but they both seemed to be very clean. They are also pet friendly which was a bonus for us as we had our small dog with us. Will definatly stay here again on our next trip to Banff.

Had a family room, which comfortably slept 4 people, with a separate bedroom from the living area. Rooms are basic and could do with updating, big plus is that the room had a fridge and microwave which was very useful. Reception staff were friendly

We stayed here for 3 nights in early May as part of a short tour of Canada. This hotel was chosen for us by our tour company - and they did well!

We found the bed very comfortable - I have a bad back and that is a really important fact for me! The hotel was very clean, well equiped and with friendly, helpful staff! The hotel is superbly located for the town of Banff being only a few minutes walk away. Our room overlooked the car park with the mountains in the back ground. It was very quiet and restful - a good nights sleep.

The hotel is well equiped with a mini gym, hot tub and laundrette. The restaurant attached but not part of the hotel is to be recommended. Don't look any further for breakfast - reasonably priced and excellent.

There are many hotels in Banff - but if I go there again (and I hope to) I would stay here again, no point in changing something when the one you have is more than good enough!

Room Tip: I believe the ones near the hostel may be noisier if the patrons there are in party mood! But that...
