“Beautiful View!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Our family stayed at the Rimrock for two nights in June 2013 while visiting Banff. We loved the location away from the strip which is tourist central. I thought the location would be great as it was close to the hot springs. I would pass on the hot springs. We walked over and turned around as the pool was packed, smelled horribly, and really just looked like your local public pool. We opted for a swim at the nice pool at the hotel. Despite that we really liked the Rimrock. We had dinner at the hotel both nights out on the little deck off of the main lobby. The food was good and the view was better than anything you could get in the village. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. We did not have a spectacular view from the room as we looked over the parking lot but that is probably available for a few extra dollars. If we returned to Banff we would stay here again as it was a nice respite from the hordes in the village and the Fairmont!

Room Tip: stay away from the up hill end of the hotel which overlooks the parking structure

We are delighted that you enjoyed your experience with us, and that you were able to take in the exquisite views from the lobby lounge. We recommend on your next stay, book a premium guestroom, with views of the surrounding valley and mountains ~ you will have a difficult time choosing between room service to stay in with the view and joining us in the lounge for the expansive view with the grand fireplace.

We look forward to your next visit!

Yours In Hospitality,

Rimrock Resort Hotel Management

If you've never been to the Rimrock Hotel, you need to try it! The facilities are fantastic, the view is spectacular. I've been coming here every year for 18 years and really love it. Once you've sat in the Larkspur lounge with the two sided fireplace, you'll never want to leave!

This is a great hotel. Relaxing and great spa. Nice friendly staff beautiful location. Free bus to get into the city. Good activities easily organized through the hotel. Hot springs and gondola a 5 minute walk away. Restaurant has a beautiful view and relaxed atmosphere. A little pricey though.

Even though there is a pool and that helps for having kids stay it had a lot of chemicals and wouldn't recommend it for young kids. It's still one our favourite hotels and when it comes to comfortable beds there is none better

We stay at the Rimrock because it is the best hotel in Banff, we have stayed many times at the so called Castle in the Rockies. I can tell you first hand look at the prices for one thing, the staff for another, you do not have to put a mortgage on you house to stay at the Rimrock. The Rimrock is neat, clean and the staff are very, very good, the restaurants are great and Eden is out of this world good. The rooms are clean a nice size and comfortable with outstanding views of the valley below. The spa and fitness area is large neat, clean and tidy and above all, a very good size, the hot tub is simply great, not a cubby hole in the wall. I will say it again " if you want a great stay in Banff at the best for less go to the Rimrock"

Room Tip: Book early on a higher floor

This was our second winter stay at the Rimrock Resort. Our premium room lived up to the title and made us feel like we received good value for the price we paid. The view is simply unbeatable and, for the most part, the service is too. Valet and front desk staff are friendly and responsive and contribute to a very pleasant guest experience.


The hot springs are a 5 minute walk up the road and are not to be missed.

It had just snowed so that the tress decked in new frosting and in the morning sun on the mountains declared the splendor of a matchless Creator. Aw and wonder leave me bankrupt for words but the priviledge of that moment in that time was more than I deserved and I'm thankful.Great staff and good food overall good value.
