“Tired apartment but lovely bed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The Rundle Apartments offer accomodation which looks like a bedsit. However, although the whole place could do woith a splash of TLC, the bed was LOVELY and the bathroom very good. Not sure it was worth the $145 a night (plus tax), but the location was good and everyone else is charging the same, if not more!
And the laundorama is just down the road ($4 for a medium wash and $0.25 for 3 mins dry).

Avoid Sat night if you can, as it gets noisy in Banff

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

we had a below ground apartment which was really spacious and had a great kitchenette. The apartment was really close to centre of town (less then 3 mins walk) so a great location. we stayed for a week and had a great time - the apartment block did get a little rowdy at the weekend but wasn't a massive problem for us. Check in at the hotel down the street - staff very friendly.

You get what you pay for with these simple apartments but the space in these are amazing.
Everything was clean on our arrival and we were able to check in early. The room smelt a little like smoke but opening the window fixed that quickly, this wasn't much of a concern as was never in the room. Location is amazing. Central on Banff Ave. would stay here again.

In Banff, the hotel rooms are $300+ for one room. We needed 2 beds in two separate rooms, so from that perspective, we were way ahead. ($200 per night versus $600). Plus we got a kitchen to save bucks on breakfast. The decor is dated, and student grade, but it's not awful. I would say it's basic, decent, and clean. The location is fantastic, half a block from Banff ave and walking distance to all stores and restaurants. The internet is slow. It is a wood frame building, so you can hear your neighbours upstairs walking around, or between walls. We were lucky everyone in the building went to bed around 10, and woke up early when we stayed there. Lots of families when we were there. (Sept long weekend).
And you can use the facilities at the Ptarmigan.
If you want to save money, go for it. It's not scary, just basic!

Room Tip: If you can get the top floor, it will help with any foot noise.

Seriously, you can't book one of the cheapest private rooms in Banff, with a kitchenette no less, and expect luxury!

My suite had brand new kitchen, bathroom, paint and bedding (as far as I can tell). The bed and linen is the same you get in the Ptarmigan Inn... very comfortable.

The building... the hallways looked abused, the doors to the rooms and inside the rooms looked original and in need of replacing. The walls are fairly thin, you can hear a lot of movement and conversation from the fellow guests.
Unfortunately as well, there were two rooms of rowdy idiots having a party weekend on the floor below us. A call to the front desk quieted things down, but getting any sleep before 11 (the start of quiet time) was impossible.

I liked the convenient location, and the price, but will likely spend some extra money next time in Banff to stay at the Hidden Ridge Chalets, which are owned by the same company I believe. Much more quiet!

If you are young, budget conscious, and/or don't mind a bit of noise... Rundle Manor is perfectly fine.

I stayed there for Banff Bike Fest and there seemed to be quite a few other cyclists staying there as well. Put all the cyclists in one building next time and the partiers in the other!

, General Manager at Rundle Manor Apartment Hotel, responded to this review, June 27, 2012
Thank you so much for your review. You are correct we have just finished replacing all the flooring and redoing the bathrooms and kitchens, currently we are in the process of painting or replacing all the doors. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed these improvements.

Although we do our best to try and allocate guest to the appropriate areas, it is difficult for us to predetermine those here to party and those that are here to rest or better yet complete in our Bikefest, prior to check in and even then it is challenging. However we will take this into consideration and do our best improve these situations. Again thank you for your review, and we hope to see you again soon, whether at our sister Hidden Ridge property or any of our lovely hotels
