A spacious hotel with the basic amenities that you would expect. If you are after a dry warm clean bed, then you will be well served. If you are looking for a quality, pampered luxury experience, this hotel is not for you. The hotel is built on a steep hill so orienteering skills are desirable to find you room although well signposted hallways show you the way.
The staff are friendly and helpful and eager to assist you. The view from each room, all of which have a balcony, is amazing. The outside pools are good, one very hot. The indoor pool is good for a swim or relax and also has a hot tub.
Safety is an issue. The light fittings were held together with black tape, one of the switches fell off. You are advised that valuables should be left in the main safe at reception, which is free, and, judging by some earlier attempts to forced our doors ( damaged locks), seemed the sensible precaution to take. The owners must rake it in and should spend some of their profit refurbishing this otherwise good hotel to bring it up to date.
The hotel is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Banff but you do get a free bus pass for the duration of your stay to hop on and off the frequent ROAM bus as you wish, a helpful touch to rid you of driving/parking worries.
Overall, a no frills hotel which does what it says on the tin, somewhat overpriced for the quality of the room.
