Stayed in Rundlestone and although on Banff Avenye it's quite a walk into the centre of Banff , not that this was an issue for my wife and i as we enjoy walking. We didn't use it, but there is a local bus service for those who may struggle with the walk, and there are complimentary cycles available from the front desk staff. There is good car parking under the hotel and in terms of driving it is well placed for access to the highway
Generally speaking i would say that the hotel is "tired" and in need of a redecor but having said that the rooms are large enough and no issues with cleanliness. The wash hand basin is located in the bedroom outside the bathroom as is the hairdryer, this may not be problematic for everyone but something that we were unaware of. Pool and hot tub as pictured and a welcome place to relax if required. Our bed tended to roll into the middle this may be reflective of our room but again suggests that some upgrading and replacement programme of fitments needs to be considered.
The front desk staff are very helpful and good at making local recommendations for dining etc, we didn't eat in the Rundleston so can't comment on the dining expereince but there were a number of advertised specials which looked good but didn't tie in with our stay. All the staff were very friendly.
This was our 8th accommodation in Canada, varying from small B&B's to larger hotels and ones of similar scale to the Rundleton and our biggest bug bearer with our stay at the Rundleston was their internet access - it is very poor and as i am writing this after an earler review that also slated it i can confirm that during our stay there has been no improvements to it. In this day and age access to the internet when away from home is critical and hotels advertising this should dleiver - the Rundlestone doesn't.
Because of the above i would be wary of recommending the Rundlestone as there are a large number of hotels along Banff Avenue and if returning to Banff would consider using others before the Rundlestone. It provides good value for money and if not concerned about internet access it could be for you.
