“Quiet Room with Comfortable Bed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Only a one night stay, but we were thankful for a quiet spot to hang our hat. The king size bed and pillows were perfect. Slam dunk right there. The jacuzzi was impressive in size and worked well. Check-in and check-out were easy and took about five minutes each.

Underground parking is free. Only note that breakfast isn't free and closed at 10 on a weekend morning.

In my humble opinion, the most important aspect of staying at a hotel is having a great night's sleep - so I'm really pleased to learn that was the case! Not only do we have an 8-person hot tub in our Health Club, our 2-person Jacuzzi's in select suites are a very rare feature for Banff hotels; and extremely popular with our guests!

In order to accommodate those wanting a lie-in at the weekends (usually myself included when I stay in hotels!), our in-house restaurant, Bumper's the Beef House opens until 11:00am on Saturday and Sunday mornings. We are currently working on 'breakfast inclusive' pricing, so watch this space! (Currently, breakfast menu items range from $6-$12 when dining-in!).

We look forward to welcoming you back at some point in the future!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

I'll start the review by saying I checked out early from the Banff Fairmont to move to the Rundlestone and wished I had moved days earlier. I reviewed the Fairmont elsewhere, so won't linger, but will say that the Rundlestone was a breath of fresh air of courteous and accommodating staff, a convenient in welcoming in and out location, and a high quality spacious room (which the Fairmont was none of these).
Entering town from the highway, the Rundlestone is one of the first properties in downtown proper. I like this because there wasn't as much congestion, if you're looking to step right out onto the restaurants and shops it might not be what you want. we found it just right.
The room was great. We got a loft unit that had a kitchen upon entering with a nice living room with a wood burning fireplace and then an upstairs bedroom with a very comfortable bed. The decoration was comfortable. There were no views, but then again neither did my room at the Fairmont for twice the price.
We had dinner one night at the restaurant on site and it was very good, very nicely appointed, and with great service.

Room Tip: Go for a loft room, the one bedroom has the bed upstair and the living area downstairs.

We stayed here on a weekend hiking trip and enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms were comfortable and the staff was very nice. The lobby area was a nice hangout for our group of friends, and we enjoyed seeing the mule deer walking down the street.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Spent a week here and the Rundlestone is a stellar place to stay. It was quiet, very comfortable and the hospitality of the staff was unsurpassed.

The underground parking was great! It snowed a few days during our stay and is was very nice to get in the elevator and go straight to the garage. This is especially nice when you arrive or depart with your luggage. No icy windshield to scrape. Parking is free!!!

The hotel dinning facilities are excellent. If you are in a hurry to go skiing in the morning just run down to the restaurant for breakfast.

The Rundlestone is close to downtown Banff (about a 3 minute drive) so you are close but just far enough away to avoid the confusion.

Room Tip: Try a fireplace...

The room was very well equipped and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in when away from home. It was extremely clean and kept that way during the week's stay. All the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The front desk staff have excellent local knowledge and helped with ideas on how to make the most of a week in Banff. The food in the restaurant was delicious and helpings very generous. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi were nice to relax in after a busy day sightseeing. I didn't try the gym as we got enough exercise hiking!
All in all a friendly, welcoming hotel with rustic charm and lovely staff.
