“Park lodge, spectacular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Banff is a superb place to visit. I have been twice. The first time we stayed in Banff Park lodge. The hotel is excellent. Rooms large and comfortable, and the facilities in the hotel are also great. I suppose one thing was the train that ran through the town in the early hours of the morning and beeped its horn for what seemed like an eternity. Despite the lack of sleep, Banff has a magic about it that is hard to quantify by mere words. If you love skiing, go. If you love spectacular scenery and friendly people, go. In fact, just go. Summer or winter....it is superb!

Just returned from a mother-daughter weekend in Banff and really enjoyed the excellent location just a block from the river pathway and an easy walk to the heart of town. The rooms have been nicely upgraded and our request for a quiet room was granted (although some obnoxious guests decided to yell through the hallways at 3:30am). My only beef was that my request for a softer pillow as advertised by their "pillow menu" (supposedly delivered "within 15 minutes") never did arrive. Oh well...a great stay nonetheless and I will return!

Every time I spend the weekend in Banff I stay here. Reasonable rates, clean rooms, great location. Every staff member that I have dealt with has been freindly and professional. I will continue to stay here every time I go to Banff

What can I say ... We had a fantastic time here! We wanted a couples night away and we sure found it. I think was did it for us was the all you can eat seafood buffet (well priced and excellent quality), as well as the late night cocktails at the small bar they have. The pool was great, the hottub was great, the service was great, and the price was great. We will be back!

We were visiting our daughter who was on a Gap year and working in Banff. Hotel had all the facilities we wanted - very well placed, great bar area, wonderful steam room for easing yourself back to normality after a good days skiing, lovely large rooms and beds, great heated car park, so ski boots stayed in the car. The bar did some delicious cocktails and bar food which we used a few times instead of eating out, although in Banff there are so many great places to dine out. For this reason we never used the restaurant but looked wonderful. When visiting Banff again would definitely choose BPL.

Just spent 14 wonderful nights at the BPL, staying in one of their fantastic lodge suites. Huge room, with plenty of space for my wife and I and our three kids. So great to find a hotel able to cope with a "large" family!

The pool area was used every day by us, got a little noisy and crowded but still great to soak in the jacuzzi after skiing.

Best thing about the hotel is the location if you are going skiing. The ski bus stops right outside the lobby, 10 yards from the ski store. The BPL is also the last pickup, and first drop off so a nice short transfer time. They always ensure there is a bus there with enough space, regardless of how bush it gets. Also being only two blocks from the centre of banff, you are in a great place for restaurants shops and bars.

The staff at the hotel were all lovely and helpful, from Lorna at reception to Robin the concierge. Only minor negative would be that service isn't great in the bar.

All in all we had a fantastic stay there with some brilliant skiing. Would love to get back there again.

Just had two nights at thus resort and would recommend it to anyone. Lovely and warm throughout, even the basement carpark was heated. Beds very comfy, rooms clean and serviced evrry day. No complaints at all with this accommodation.
