“Terrific place”

what is there not to like about this tremendous facility in such a terrific setting. Incredible performances by world class performers, great food at their restaurants and interesting exhibitions. All in one location in a terrific place.

“Delightful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

The facilities are amazing! Very few people realize
the extent of opportunity available besides the
educational programs.
Our accommodation was every bit as nice as the
four star resorts and hotels in the township.
Amenities in the rooms were above average
and rooms were effectively decorated--good
lighting.
Dining rooms and room service delivered excellent
food and service overall was very friendly and
helpful.
We would suggest this facility as a consideration
with your next visit to Banff!

A classic theatre. It is so nice to see a well maintained theatre as
they have maintained it so well and kept the theme of the Banff centre so well and preserved. Thank you!!

“LOL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

took in two performances: Spike Lee talks; Bruce McCulloch in Young Drunk Punk. Great to occupy the evening before the night life heats up. Beautiful theatres, close to even the furthest hotel and affordable.

“Lodge style fit for purpose and blending perfectly with the environment.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

I stayed at this hotel for an offsite at the Kinnear Centre and really liked the wooden lodge style feel to the place. The room was a good size with a large comfortable bed with each room enjoying a balcony with great views. Furnishings were adequate, if a little dated and there was a scurry of activity (rubbish collection?) outside making it noisy early in the mornings. Breakfast was taken on the top floor of a building a short walk from the hotel with spectacular views of the mountains. I would definitely recommend this hotel for the purpose it served (ie for attending a function).
