“In Banff - stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We have stayed here many times in the past ten years. We always enjoy the nice rooms, excellent food and great service.

1) Away from bustle and noise of Banff itself, but 3 minutes to town by car.
2) Great views from north facing rooms on 7th, 8th and 9th floors.
3) Primrose - good food
4) Eden - ate there once. Spectacular food - but very expensive
5) Very friendly staff
6) Met a nice young lady from Ireland on last trip in June. She offered us her table in the Lounge area and we chatted - so meet nice people too.

Room Tip: More expensive but stay in rooms with "Bow Valley View". We do and the view is unbelievabl...

Thank you for writing about your most recent stay with us on Tripadvisor! We are glad that you had the chance to enjoy the our Italian-themed Primrose as well as the five-diamond Eden dining room. It's also great that you were able to enjoy the view from your room facing north at the Bow Valley. We look forward to your next visit to the area.

Perhaps a step down from the Banff Springs Hotel, but a very nice up-scale hotel. Out of the hustle & bustle of Banff but right on the convenient bus stop into town (the hotel provides free passes).

Breakfasts were very good. Dinner was just OK and slightly overpriced for what you got. My wife's cod and pasta was totally tasteless.

great aussie staff.

Great bars and staff.

Room Tip: rooms facing the mountains.try the breakfast but skip dinner (go into town).

You just couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The rooms are plush and the restaurant and other amenities are wonderful. The hotel is out of town but there is a bus that has a regular stop at the hotel for a short ride into town.

This hotel whilst being a little out of the main drag is everything a high end hotel is trying to achieve. We have been travelling in the west coast of USA for three weeks and have now entered Banff,
Refreshing in all aspects with service delivery from staff throughout the hotel.
A very eclectic staff where staff training has been paramount. An honest style of delivery which we appreciated.
Room proportions excellent and cleanliness and hygiene to match.
We dined in the mid level restaurant ' Primrose Room ' we would not normally choose to eat in the same room two consecutive nights but our first night experience was so good that we returned.
You do not need to eat two courses. I did however have two entrees ( or starters ) and they were excellent.
We did not have dessert on the first night.
Next night my wife wanted to try one of the offerings......it was so good .....so much better than anywhere that we had eaten in our travels across USA States. If you elect not to stay at Rimrock then do yourself a favour and eat at the Primrose restaurant.

Room Tip: Room 859 or similiar

Thank you for taking the opportunity to share your experience after your recent stay at The Rimrock.

Thank you for the kind words regarding our staff, and it is my pleasure to share your feedback with the rest of our service staff. We are delighted that you had the opportunity to enjoy the Primrose so much that you had to go back a second night! We hope that, should you have the opportunity to visit again, you have to chance to enjoy our five-diamond dining room, Eden.

Food! Don't go elsewhere - order room service or visit one of the hotel restaurants. Favourites = scallops and risotto, angel hair pasta with shrimp, the squash ravioli! Great eggs Benny as well! Great stay.

This hotel is one of my favourites. Nestled high in the mountains with stunning views and a lovely balcony to enjoy it from. It is a quiet and serene place. The best part was the friendly service. The entire staff from those in the dinning room to those in the pool area and cleaning staff were all helpful. The in room breakfast service choices were so good and so abundant. Loved it, and we are planning to stay here again on our next Banff vacation.

We have recently spent two days at Rimrock Hotel Banff. The hotel location is fantastic, but we had three ordinary dining experiences. We began at Larkspur for lunch . The morrocan chicken wraps were dry and uninspiring. Dinner at the renowned Eden restaurant was a laborious affair with entrees (main course) being served at 10 pm with a 7.30pm booking. The pheasant was tough but lamb and beef were good. The servings were minute but delicate. After paying $150 for two course with matching wine, I felt hungry after the event.

All was redeemed with the concierge , Jenny Botha, working above and beyond. I was trying to buy tickets to Calgary stampede. There were difficulties, jenny spent two hours assisting me.
Donna at reception was also above average.

My final hour was spent gazing longingly at a family of elks across the road.

Room Tip: The south side rooms have a better aspect.
