“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We arrived to stay for a week, from a friend's recommendation, but ended up staying 3 weeks. Why move from such a great location - a short walk to the shops, tourist attractions, bus out the front & tour pick ups at the front door.
All staff were so friendly, welcoming, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Loved the large room, comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom, stunning views and great service.
Made good use of the pool, hot tubs, laundry & parking facilities. So good to have a lovely breakfast included from early to late morning.
Best accommodation we used in all of Canada especially at such a good price. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone planning a trip to Banff.

We have stayed at High Country on several occasions and will continue to do so. It is a comfortable, very clean, well maintained, family run business. The staff is extra helpful and friendly. The breakfast room is always clean and is perfect for a little breakfast before heading out skiing for the day. Not fancy, but has everything you need.
The hot tub area is especially clean and never busy. There are always towels available, unlike some of the other hotels in the area. The beds are very comfy. Our room had a little fridge, microwave, kettle, and coffee, perfect for our 10 day ski get away!

Keeping it short and to the point:

-The staff were awesome
-The room was great, especially for the price
-Having hot tubs so accessible is great
-Included breakfast is decent, but having cold boiled eggs and a sign that says 'No eggs in the microwave' kind of sucks
-The wifi in our room was bad, but good in the lobby

Well situated hotel ( 5 min walk from central Banff ). Friendly staff and decent size rooms. You get what you pay for and this hotel represents good value for money in a town that capitalises on tourism. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise.. Decent variety and plenty of tables.. Good fruit, cereals and hot dishes.. The absolute bonus here was FREE PARKING! Believe it or not this not common in Banff Hotels. The hotel also has a Sauna and pool.. As we said, good value in Banff!

We spent two nights here for a mini family get away. The hotel yes is older, but the room we had was nice. we had a great view of the mountains. We slept well, didn't hear too much noise. The pool was great, clean and well maintained. The kids loved it. It is a bit on the cool side but that fine. The boys loved that there were two hot tubs to sit in. The front desk people were top notch. Friendly and helpful, one of the best check ins I have even done. I had one small issue with our room and it was taken care of in a timely fashion. The breakfast isn't the greatest, but it was free so cant complain too much. The hotel is close to downtown, we could walk there for suppers and shopping. For the price we paid it was good value for our money. We didn't spend too much time in our room as there is so much to see and do in Banff, it is a good base for your Banff adventures.

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor at the back of the hotel. We found it quiet as it was far from the...

Stayed for 2 nights with my parents, had a great experience. The rooms were very clean and had modern decor, the breakfast could have been better, it lacked hot food. The pool and 2 hot tubs were very clean and well maintained. The day we checked out they allowed us to stay in the room until 1pm with not extra charges and then allowed my father to do some laundry after checking out while my mother and I did some shopping. Staff was very friendly and helpful, I would love to stay here again
