Our room was nicely appointed on first appearance, however many items were lacking. The bathroom sink did not drain, even after maintenance came to service it. The housekeeping staff built a fire in the fireplace, on a grate that was in pieces- should we have had to call maintenance to replace it or should the staff have already taken care... More

the room was cramped, the walls are chipped and in need of paint and a very good cleaning. The mirror frame and other bent willow furnishings were very dusty. For the price of the room one would expect a bar fridge. Booking online was very miss leading sending me through an American web site but not fully disclosing pricing was... More

Friendly staff, good meals, well equipped room with fireplace and wood supplied and close proximity to downtown and hiking trails. Easy walk to see Hoodoos. The walk back up the hill after a diner in town was very comfortable.

Recently stayed for a wedding this past weekend, while the location was beautiful. I felt paying the almost $400/night average is a high compared to other resorts within the Banff area. While I enjoyed the outdoor Hot Tub, the temperature wasn't hot enough. The one detail that I thoroughly enjoyed is the fireplace in each room. Parking is a little... More

Very helpful staff for the wedding. Meal was very good. Sleeping was a little more difficult as you could hear the train but the hotel provided earplugs. The bathroom floor had grit and dirt on it when we checked in.

Room was very tired and needed to be properly cleaned. We found underwear behind the tv and place was dusty. Walls needed to wiped down and were badly chipped in places. Room was noisy at night with people above us and the train going by.

Used to stop in for dinner and breakfast when in Banff and always was a treat, last time in Nov 2014. This time though was different. For Breakfast we opted for the buffet because the exiting menu items of 2 years ago had all vanished. The buffet was basic, nothing to write home about. Then we went back for dinner,... More

Staff and cleanliness were very good. Our room was well appointed but the suite rented by the parents of the groom didn't have much cachet and appeal. The service at the wedding was very good although it was somewhat awkward to have the bar and bathrooms on a different level than the reception.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
