We stayed at Banff Avenue Inn in February 2008.
During the winter season the hotel is taken over and run by Crystal Ski and what a great job they make of it.
The hotel is very clean, the rooms are massive and the Jacuzzi is great after a days skiing.
Breakfast is a buffet of cold meat, pastries and breads and each day a hot breakfast is offered.
Afternoon tea is a selection of cheese, olives and cold meat with a choice of at least two cakes with as much tea and coffee as you can drink.
The evening meal is two sittings 18:30 or 20.00hrs. You choose at breakfast which sitting you would like. You also have a choice of two starters and two main courses each day. These are not run of the mill meals but fresh fish, quality meats and something different each day. They are happy to cater for vegetarians and others with particular requirements.
The staff are great and bend over backwards to help.
Ski lockers are very handy in the underground car park and the ski bus stops nearly outside.
The main shopping, eating and drinking places are 5 min stroll down the road.
We will be going back soon.
