We stayed here in early February 2009, we were a little apprehensive after reading other reviews, but we needn't have worried. Everything is fine at the Inns Of Banff. The rooms are BIG (two queen beds)....and very comfortable ones at that. We were on a room only basis & ate out (or in our room) so we can't comment on the breakfast or the restaurant. The pool & jacuzzi inside the hotel were lovely after a day on the slopes. The staff are very helpful, free local bus pass (ideal for the Banff Gondola.....which is a MUST do!!).
The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from central Banff but that is really not a problem....just wrap up!! ....and due to its location it's really quiet in the rooms....a good nights sleep every night. People have commented on the 'rabbit warren' design & we have to agree, but again it's not a problem.....you soon get used to the fact that floor 4 in block A takes you to floor 2 in block B ?!!? The ski storage area is fine & secure.
The courtesy buses were very prompt, they call & drop off at Inns of Banff first which is useful.
Banff is a beautiful place, the scenery is simply stunning, Sunshine Village is great for snowboarding....lots of wide open spaces....weekends are busier, but that's a good time to go on the Gondola. There was a good choice of restaurants......Earls was our favourite.....and Evelyn's coffee house :))
Go and see for yourself it's lovely!! (and very cold!!)
