“Spectacular view! Away from the busy part of town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

It had a spectacular view rundle stone and two other mountains! The restaurant is excellent! And they have a hot tub. It's right on the edge of town away from the touristy busy town centre. They also have a mice nature walk area, the rooms are very clean but small it's simplistic yet luxurious. My only complaint is that they DID NOT CARE that we were on our honey moon my husband even called in advance to let them know and they did and said nothing! He told them again when we got there and NOTHING! We would stay there again though but don't expect them to go out of their way for you. There was one girl that worked at the front desk that was very helpful about restaurants and stuff to do.

This hotel, has a great location, away from the busy town centre but still 5 min drive or 15 min walk if you are up to it.
The view outside and from the restaurant are one of a kind, for sure one of the best restaurants in Banff. I visited with my family and our dog, great rooms, clean and nice rustic feel. And we have come back two times al ready. Just perfect!

Our stay was a highlight of our two week road trip. we slept beautifully. Clean rooms with a great feel...Really enjoyed the food. Great vegetarian options.. View and setting was very relaxing. Nice staff. We booked one night and decided to stay an extra one to recharge further. Black Bear almost joined us for lunch, Pic uploaded as proof.!!

Stayed in one of their mt. view room on the second floor. It is a renovated hotel but keep in mind that it is an old building. Thus squeaky floor throughout (literally every step in the room), really squeaky bed (couldn't sleep well as every toss and turn resulted sounds that kept us awake), topped off with a horribly noisy room heater. Also the sound of cars whipping by on Hwy. 1 was quite loud and bad! Will definitely need ear plugs if a sensitive person. Bathroom has no fan and the room smelled somewhat unpleasant so had to leave the balcony door open for a while for fresh air. We checked in early but had the front desk calling on my cell at 10:30 pm (!!) asking why I was not checking in. It was not our first time at this hotel but don't think we will come back in the future.

I highly recommend this Hotel The rooms were large and the beds comfortable. The place including the bathroom was updated and clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room faced Highway 1, however when the door was closed you could not hear the highway traffic. We left the window open on our second night instead of having the air conditioning running and the traffic noise was minimal after dark. The air conditioner was a little loud. I loved having a balcony off the room. The hotel is not in the town of Banff but do not let that deter you as it is quite, and a short walk to downtown.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side do not face Highway 1, and would not get the highway traffic noise, however...

The Juniper hotel has by far the best panoramic view we've ever experienced! They had an apres ski event going on, a 7 course meal and the price on that was great! around 50$ I believe. The hotel is very close to one of banff ski resorts which was really nice as well. The hotel has an outdoor fire pit that stands right outside the restaurant which was awesome. We definitely recommend that place for couples and friends.

Service is ok. The girls a the front are look in bad mood most of the time.
Rooms are ok. They look like a construction camp.
It is clean though ana a little overprice
