“staff that go above and beyond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I want to say thanks to the Charlton management team for the quality staff they have on board. Two deserve especial mention: Harley at the front desk is a mature balance between professional and approachable. The other was the red haired lady in the breakfast area. Compassion, capability and personality simply oozed from her! This will most certainly be a return choice for us whenever we are in Banff!!

We booked the hotel on-line based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. We selected a romance package with several upgrades and add-ons and everything was as advertised. The rooms were clean and well-appointed and the location was nice, not too close to downtown to be noisy but within walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Excellent value!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in September. This is a Motel that outrageously has the temerity to call itself a Hotel - never in a month of Sundays is this a hotel and not what I'd call value for money. The first room allocated to us was situated next to the air conditioning plant, the noise from which was persistently intrusive. However, when I mentioned it to reception the next morning they did move us to a quieter location - so thank goodness for common sense. The hotel is a fairly old timber framed building with very little by way of sound proofing and therefore noise transmission is a problem between rooms and external walkways only exacerbate the situation. Upon booking we were given to understand that breakfast was provided in the price. This turned out to be one of those "help yourself" to a most unimaginative assortment of cereals, yogurts, toast, and boiled eggs in a characterless room were the guests were uncommunicative, and to cap it all the coffee was self service in paper cups. If the hotel's plan was to achieve a swift throughput it certainly met its objective as nobody hung about for long. The so called swimming pool was a bit on the small side and generally the changing facilities were dated. Now for the good points, the car parking is on site and free, and for the spritely it's only a 15/20 minute walk to downtown Banff. Banff is an absolutely wonderful place - shame about this place.

Room Tip: Have look somewhere else first.

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.
