The Bow View Lodge is situated in a corner of Banff, next to the river. It’s location is the major plus as it’s quiet at night but still close enough to Banff Avenue to join the crowd in just a couple of minutes. The hotel is easily reachable from the highway and parking is free of charge which is also a big advantage.
Compared with the outside look of the hotel, the inside is a bit disappointing. It could use a make-over. Rooms are spacious and equipped with everything you would need. There’s a balcony to sit on but as said, the overall look of the room is a little bit outdated.
And during such a renovation, I would move the reception to a more central place in the hotel. It’s now a bit ‘of the beaten track’, just next to the entrance. Nevertheless, staff is very helpful and friendly.
It’s a pity you cannot have breakfast in the hotel. Many places in Banff do fill in that gap however.
In summary, this hotel is a very good choice when staying in Banff.
