“Banff Caribou Lodge New Year 2012/13”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

This will be the 4th or 5th time we have visited the Caribou Lodge and cannot say enough about the hotel. The staff are most helpful and really go out of there way to assist. The general environment of the hotel, the Keg and the Spa facilities is excellent, giving you a real feeling of warmth and home.

We travel a lot to banff in the winter for skiing. The banff caribou lodge most certainly is the best place to stay, super comfortable beds and nice clean rooms. Our last stay was just myself and 2 kids, walked into town for dinner and came back and watched a movie. We will be back for sure!
Only downside was we were close to the pool, and was quite loud but not the hotels fault, next time I will ask for a room away from the pool area. Front desk staff we nice and friendly. Went to the keg for breakfast had a good meal before skiing for the day. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We were in room 108, busy hallway if you want quiet.

We stayed for several days over the holidays including New Years. I can not think of a complaint we had. Stayed in a loft suite with jetted tub and it added to the experience. The keg was a perfect breakfast idea. Thanks caribou !!!

Best Holiday ever!
Hotel was amazing, food downstairs was really good, the sauna and steam room was always empty so we lived in there every night.
If you ask for the Cegg cocktail they come in this massive glass and their soooo good.
Services was brilliant, we checked in smoothly,had flowers and champagne when we arrived.
It takes like a five minitue walk into town, but if you ask at reception they will give you bus passes and time scheduals and packed lunch if your going out for the day.
The sushi bars in town are amazing, there is loads of wifi cafe's around to use also.
Will I return? Hell YES!!

Room Tip: Free Bus passes at reception Ask for a room facing the front, the moutain views are amazing.

we had the mountain view, fire place, loft room with the double tub. Ordered room service from the Keg (cheese cake) Yum! No extra cost was a bonus. They charged it right to our room bill, that was nice. only downer, the room was in the front right off the main road and we could hear all the buses and plows working away. The room was fabulous, but I did not sleep well.

Had a really great stay here . Good service and clean rooms. We would go back here for sure. The spa was really great, massages were wonderful. Dinner at the keg was also very good. Stayed in a superior king room with balcony - seen mule deers right outside our room.
