“Basic but comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here between Christmas and New Year for a skiing break. It's basic, clean and comfortable. If you're on a budget, a great place to stay. The in house pizza is also a life save r if you can't be bothered to go out. Breakfast is bagels. Muffins, cereals and fruit so don't expect a huge buffet. Plenty of it though!

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This hotel was reasonably priced and well appointed. There is free underground parking at the hotel and the complimentary breakfast is okay. We enjoyed a quick dip in the indoor hot tub and steam room (however visiting in the summer months it was very quiet in there and we needed to heat up the stream room and sauna prior to entering – tip would be to get them turned on and then take a dip in the hot tub first whilst you wait).

The hotel is located a little out of the main part of town (as are most of the other large hotels) but we did not find this an issue as it was a pleasant short walk to the shops and restaurants.

I stayed here last week on a trip to Banff. An easy 10 min walk to Banff's main action, really clean room and big comfy beds.

My room even had a little patio for those smokers out there.

Solid wi-fi connection and a great pizza place within the hotel.

Looking forward to the upgraded pool and hot tub area that's coming just in time for ski season.

I'd stay here again and recommend it to any of my colleagues/friends.

Stayed here last January and now again.
This hotel is good, rooms are spacious, and clean.
Furniture is a bit outdated , big old tv , remote didn't work well , and could hear the neighbours doing It . All and all not bad place to stay.

I stayed here for one night, i wouldnt mind staying there next time again. The room is clean, the staffs are friendly, bed and blankets are comfortable. There's underground parking. I would definitely come back to this hotel. But only one thing they dont have a refrigerator.

Nice breakfast, 10min walk to town centre, good view from our window, well appointed bathroom. Really clean and private and good value for the money we paid. Staff were friendly too. It had a hot tub which looked pretty inviting! We'd definately stay again without hesitation!

This hotel was a good deal price wise. However once there we realized why the price was so good. It did not have a clean feel to it. And you can actually get a better price with other hotels that include tickets to the Hot springs. The rooftop pool was not enticing. We paid the extra and went to the Hot springs. However the worst part was the tour buses that arrived in the middle of the night and then the travelers all took showers. The water ran "loudly" in our room for a good 1.5 hours from 11pm-12:30 am. and we had a morning flight to catch I cannot recommend this hotel. EC from WA
