5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Great Hotel on main road to Banff. Staff were very helpful on arrival. Had a really great evening meal in the Keg Restaurant though prices quite high compared to what we are used to in UK, Staff attentive. Buffet breakfast was very good and staff very attentive. Room very comfortable with two double beds. Had bag of dirty washing cleaned and returned to our room by 6.00 o'clock, must be down by 9.00 oclock. Great having underground carpark which was included in price.

Room Tip: Room overlooking side street quiet

Stayed one night during our Ruby wedding tour. Hotel surprised us with a card and a bottle of champagne. We had 2 lovely lunches and the staff were all very efficient and friendly. Free bus passes and discount vouchers to lots of the shops also came in handy. 2 double beds in our room!

Lovely Hotel on the main road into Banff , the lobby had a huge log fire to welcome you, on this cold day, the staff where most welcoming and as l arrived early graciously found me a room
straight away. The room was very comfortable, and included a set of antlers in the bathroom!
The restaurant/bar was also very relaxing with more open fires, and attentive staff.

Room Tip: Just enjoy!

We arrived late in the evening without a reservation. The front desk staff was very accommodating and got us a room. The room was well appointed, clean and quiet. We received a package of coupons for activities and retail stores in the area. Underground parking was included in the room rate. The buffet breakfast in the Keg restaurant was excellent.

Stayed here while on a skiing holiday. Room was very big, comfy and clean. Bathroom spacious and clean also. Shuttle bus arrives at hotel so no need to walk to get the bus to Lake Louise. Staff are very friendly and a short 15 minute walk into downtown Banff is a variety of shops and restaurants. A very enjoyable stay.

Had 2 nights here. It is a little further from downtown than some others but close enough to walk. Rooms were spacious and clean. Bed was not the most comfortable. Reception staff were helpful and efficient.

Situated 15 minutes walk from downtown with integral parking. Disappointing basic room, only one bedside table and dirt at the corner of the bed from shoddy drilling. Toilet flush broke first night (fixed quickly) kettle did not work but we could not be bothered to get it done on the lasts night. Dining expensive and small portions. If you stay in the rear rooms take ear plugs because the railway through Banff level crossing means the trains hoot their way through!
