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.

Dirty/old and extremely overpriced. I should have listened to the previous reviews I saw online. Waste of money. I think that they should be charging one third of what they do now until they get their rooms in better condition

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed at BML mid week to catch some quiet skiing. Great hotel with a good price. Things were quiet as expected and having a real wood fireplace is a treat. Rooms are a bit dated but otherwise a great place to stay. Nice and clean and warm.

Lovely location and with the courtesy shuttle the hotel doesn’t seem remote. Fires in the rooms are great and the restaurant food is good. Service was excellent. Would return, especially for a mid week winter break as it was so quiet.

Nice stay in a cozy room with wood burning fireplace. Our room was a little dated but still comfortable. Upon arrival, there was hair in the bathtub and blueberries on the floor in the room that wasn't cleaned up. A little more attention was needed b Ly housekeeping. Restaurant was very good, food was tasty and staff were great. Front desk staff were great too. Some sort of gathering was happening, probably a wedding party at the same time, until about 1 am. A little loud at times. Not the best experience if you want the quiet mountain escape but wasn't the worst neither. They had earplugs waiting in the room. Yikes!! Overall, not bad.

This is a lovely place to stay nestled in the quiet forest a 20 minute walk, 3 min drive, from the centre of Banff. The staff are top notch and the rooms are rustic and elegant. Another great CRMR property.
