We booked 10 nights at the Mount Royal Hotel from 13th February until 23rd February 2013 and had read all of the reviews prior to booking. It was our first time staying at this hotel.
This was our 6th trip to Banff so we are very familiar with the area and knew the hotel was in a fantastic location for the town centre. We always book a car to get us to the mountains for skiing so parking was essential for us and there was plenty of parking to the rear of the hotel.
The room we were given was fully refurbished and was more than adequate for us as a family given the price we had paid. My only complaint about the room is that we were on the 2nd floor and right above the entrance to the Paddock Bar. Whilst this in itself wasn't an issue as there was no noise from the bar at all, the door way was very busy with smokers! From around 11pm there was noise from people coming to and from the bar but this escalated after 2am at closing time. Each evening had different levels of noise! I would request a room to the rear of the hotel even though the view might not be as nice.
The staff in the hotel were very helpful when we had any issues and although our room could be noisy at night, I would still recommend this hotel on the basis of its location, the staff, good car parking and the room quality.
We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel as we were up and out before breakfast started at 7am, so we had breakfast on the mountain or in McDonalds next door which is 24hours, so I'm unable to comment on the breakfast. We did eat dinner at Tony Romas on a number of occasions and the food was always plentiful and excellent.
