“Superb town, average but friendly hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Arrival 4 - located on the Main Street through Banff and easy to find off Hwy 1. Plenty of free parking. Very friendly and efficient check in. The man on reception was very helpful with ideas of the priorities to see in Banff.

Room 3.5 - a duplex apartment -

Downstairs 3 - gas fire, aircon, tea/coffee maker, fridge. Sofa and wardrobe. Iron plus board, hair dryer, small fridge. Good size tv. All fine, but rather dark and there was a musty of odour.

Upstairs 4 - access is via a spiral staircase. Light and spacious. King bed with very comfy mattress and nice pillows. Another good size tv. We slept well.

Having no balcony was a downside for us, as the views of the mountains surrounding the town are excellent.

Bathroom 3 - ok with good size shower. You had to have very long arms to reach the loo paper when on the loo!!

Breakfast 3 - fair selection of cereals, fruit and bread. Nice coffee. Quite basic, but enough to get you started for the day and it is complementary.

Overall 3 - perhaps 3.5. Nothing wrong with the hotel. We loved Banff. The views are stunning.

My husband and I stayed at Charlton's Cedar Court September 7-10, 2013. It was a great place to stay. It was very clean and up-to-date. The front desk personnel were extremely friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was very good every morning. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a reasonable place to stay in Banff.

We were very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. We had a standard king room, but it was a great size and had an excellent bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate bath. You don't often get that in a standard room. Bed was very comfortable. We had a room on the ground floor at the back, which was nice and quiet away from the hustle & bustle of Banff Ave. Very passable continental breakfast. Would definitely stay here again next time we're in Banff.

Room Tip: Nice and quiet at the back.

I would have given this hotel a 4 star rating if it were not for those paper thin walls! It was like we were right there in the room with the people next door, made it impossible to sleep (oh p.s., we stayed in a King size loft suite.) The hotel room was clean though the carpets were badly, badly stained. The bathroom was decent, no tub, but for us that was okay. Liked the spiral stair case, but be careful at night because the bed is upstairs and the bathroom is down! Fireplace was nice, air conditioning worked great. I would personally not want to stay at this hotel in the winter season because you have to walk through outside corridors to get anywhere. Free parking.

We were greeted on a late evening arrival by friendly hotel personnel willing to help us not only check in but also get a sense of the area, answer our questions regarding food and drink and also describe activities available to us. That is a lot to provide after 11PM. No worries! We found the room to be clean and comfortable, and the reservations as requested. We think we got the last room in the establishment, since the car port was full (we found the last parking space). The hotel is located a few blocks from the downtown and so quieter but near enough for an evening stroll to the activity center. We had a wonderful time in Banff, and the hotel staff contributed to it in no small way. Our car battery ran down, and we got a jump, no problem. We needed to get a package delivered, no problem. Etc. Decor is sort of "faded" English/Canadian and comfortable. Nice without being luxurious. A great big bathroom with both tub and shower. We liked the refrigerator in the room. When we return, we'll look to stay here again.

We rented a king loft room and were very pleased. The bed was comfortable. He bathroom is good sized and the shower is large. Nice assortment of toiletries. The couch is right in front of the air conditioning unit. You need to run on high to cool the loft so run on high while out to dinner. The continental breakfast is decent. The staff was courteous and helpful. Restaurants we ate at and enjoyed were Earl's, Tooloulous, and Carlitos. Ask for extra adduce on pizza. It is any easy walk to downtown Banff

We stayed here for a night in July. Good price, good location. Nothing fancy, but clean, good staff and rooms are a good size. The rooms need some updating. Short walk into the shops on main street in Banff. We would definitely stay here again.
