Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a peaceful retreat on Tunnel Mountain in Banff, AB. The lodge is surrounded by 9 acres of towering fir, pine, and spruce trees, yet just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the shopping, nightlife and restaurants that are on offer in downtown Banff. A favourite visitor pastime is to observe the deer and elk who frequently nibble on the lawn, right outside the lodge's windows. The lodge has 108 guest rooms, an outdoor hot tub, and several options for dining, making it the ideal location for a weekend getaway, wedding, or corporate retreat. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts' family of companies. Rooms at the lodge have fieldstone wood-burning fireplaces, cozy duvets, LCD televisions and Blu-ray players. Many feature patios or balconies. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect the mountain lifestyle in Banff-the accommodation is anything but 'cookie cutter.' The outdoor stainless steel hot tub is best enjoyed after an invigorating hike, bike or ski on one of the nearby trails-or perhaps to aid digestion after a sumptuous meal in the lodge's highly acclaimed restaurant, Sleeping Buffalo. You can also enjoy quick bites at our Buffalo Mountain Cafe.

Wow! My stay was absolutely incredible. My room was so cozy, the wood fireplace inside was an amazing added feature. I loved the balcony and the view. Due to covid, the restaurant was not open for dine-in but they were prompt with pre ordered meals and my meals came on time every time. I'm so pleased with how friendly the staff was and how clean the room was. Definitely recommend visiting Buffalo mountain lodge and I will be returning!

Me and my wife went there for our 1st anniversary. I could not ask for more, quiet, beauty, clean, room well prepared, bathroom and towels well set, nice coffee and so on... I could write two pages about all good things about it. It was the best place that I ever been in Banff so far. For sure it is my best recommendation for anyone that goes there.
