The location is breathtaking but the rooms were really disappointing - dark, dingy and cramped. We felt that this was a hotel that catered to winter rather than summer guests, summed up by the fact that there's an open log fire in the room but no air conditioning. We spent the most uncomfortable 2 nights of our 2 week holiday here; apart from the fact that we literally found it difficult to breathe the walls were thin: on the first night we could here a dog barking and on the second someone coughing in adjoining rooms. Bathroom very cramped. Hotel is somewhat redeemed by food: I enjoyed perfectly cooked halibut and caribou (separate occasions...) and a fabulous bowl of granola, berries and yoghurt for breakfast. Service in the evening was excellent: our first encounter with a somewhat unhelpful barman was rapidly remedied by our waitress, Hannah, who was knowledgeable and pleasant. Great apple mojitos. Breakfast service a bit more haphazard. I wouldn't return here. We drove into Field and I'd be tempted to explore b&b options in this lovely little place and just come to Emerald Lake to walk and eat. Spend the money you've saved by booking into the Fairmont in Banff...
