“Another great stay at the Bowview”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Once again I stayed at the Bowview lodge and as always I had a great stay. Everything from the location , the staff , the room , the cleanliness the views exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely be back to stay again.

After the mix up on my room rate on arrival, all was very well for the rest of my stay.

Comfortable, clean, warm and spacious room. (The old TVs could be replaced).

Front desk could be more client focussed rather than hiding behind their desk.

I look forward to staying in my "home from home" in 2017

Room was basic, a bit dated but not terribly so. We had a room on the second floor facing the river, and what a view! Not only that but it is a 2 block short walk to the main strip. Very convenient. Quick drive up the road and you're at Mt. Norquay! Will definitely stay here again especially because of the price. The front desk and housekeeping staff were so friendly, nice and helpful. We had a room with one queen sized bed and a single.

Room Tip: Ask for something facing the river

Location is great in Banff. Close to everything in walking distance. Rooms are dated and a bit small. Good price for the location. Amenities available at sister property next door. Nice pools, steam room and excellent restaurants. Excellent staff and very clean rooms.

Booked a king bed room for my wifes and mine anniversary only to be told we booked wrong (but I had the email saying I had a king bed room) and got stuck with 2 double beds like 12 year olds, didn't refill shampoos or conditioners, didn't vacuum the floors, you have to walk to another building to use the pool, hot tub, steamroom, gym, and restaurant, decent location, and friendly staff. 3/10 would recommend

My husband needed emergency surgery. My two children and I desperately needed an affordable place to stay. We were so happy we were directed to the Bow View Lodge! Tucked away in a beautiful, quiet end of town we were in walking distance of many attractions and restaurants. The staff was excellent, the room was wonderfully clean and we really enjoyed the pool and steam room! We would definitely stay again for a mountain getaway.
