I stayed at Hidden Ridge for 4 nights in Jan 2013 with my husband and 17 year old daughter in a 2 bedroom loft room. My daughter was happy to take over the loft room with it's two double beds and own bathroom. The bedroom downstairs was small but comfortable. We had a lovely view from our balcony of the trees with mountains in the background. Each evening we had Elk walking past our balcony often lying down or just standing while we watched and photographed them.
The fireplace makes the room very cozy. Firewood is freely available to collect yourselves or if you call reception they would bring some to you.
When I made the booking I ordered some breakfast item's and ingredients for "smores" to be available in the room. This was a good idea as, not having a car, it was not very convenient to go out for breakfast.
We used the Roam bus to travel to and from town. It is free to guests and passes every 20 minutes so it was very convenient. There are two routes but is is easy to connect routes so that you can access the Gondola & spa's and Banff Springs Hotel. We did not feel the need for a car.
Some night we did not feel like going out. There is a booklet in the room which list dozens of restaurants and their menu's (including a bottle shop). You simply rang the service ordered whatever you want and they collect it and bring it to your door. All for about a $5 fee plus about $2 for every additional stop. Great service and great value.
The staff on reception could not have been more accommodating, especially the young girl from Perth (sorry can't remember her name).
Hidden Ridge is out of town so it may not suite everyone but we loved it for it's peace and solitude.
I would highly recommend it and would happily stay there again.
