We stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom unit at the BRMR for 2 week at the start of April 2013.
The resort is the only timeshare within Banff National park and is located close to the highway and a 5 minute drive to town. There is a free shuttle to Banff town every hour on the hour from 11 am till 11 pm.
Our 2 bedroom unit was located on the top two floors of a three story building. The living area, dinning table, kitchen and bathroom (shower only) were on the 1st floor with both bedrooms (two doubles) and full bathroom on the 2nd.
The unit was very clean on our arrival and was well equipped (Dishwasher, Microwave, Full cooker, Large fridge/freezer, etc) with lots of storage areas. No washer/dryer but these are available in the main building.
The resort had a full programme of activities for all ages. One of the organised activities is a camp fire on Saturday evening, it’s free and our kids loved roasting marshmallows over the fire.
The resort is part of the Banff Lodging Company which allows restaurant and spa charges from a number of hotels in town to be charged back to your unit. We’d highly recommend the The Keg Steakhouse at the Caribou and Chili’s Grill at the Fox Hotel.
Overall we felt that this was a very good resort in a fantastic ski location. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Especially the shuttle driver who accommodated our request to be dropped off at a stop other than the regular stop on a couple of occasions.
