We stayed in this hotel last week for 3 nights. Let me first say that their location is really quite perfect. From the hotel ;you can walk to restaurants and shopping. Their staff is fine (nothing outstanding, but no problems). The breakfasts could use a bit more variety, but i thought the made to order omelets were very good. Now... More

Easy to find, good underground parking. Rooms not as spacious as some, but had a super amount of power sockets- a group of 4 travelling with mobile phones/ipads/cameras to get charged etc- it was a great help. Self service buffet for breakfast- good variety available. Wi-fi kept dropping out- not a great problem. I'd certainly stay there again

This hotel is in a great area and walking distance to many restaurants and bars etc. The fact that parking is included is also an added bonus. Sadly the decor and general surrounds are very dated and desperately need sprucing up; in fact, it almost looks a bit grubby. The room itself was very big but the bathroom was tiny;... More

Stayed for 2 nights. This was part of a one week Canadian train trip, where we stayed at several other hotels, throughout the trip. I'll mention the good things first; friendly staff and nice location. On the other side, some of the room features fell short of what we would expect. No A/C (use the window to regulate things when... More

Stayed 5 nights in July. Enjoyed our stay, we booked late and were lucky to get a room anywhere in Banff. Room was spacious and quiet at the side of the hotel. Good coffee machine. Bed comfortable. Bathroom with shower and bath was clean and had all usual facilities. Vending machine and ice maker on our floor. We booked room... More

We were booked here for 1 night. Rooms are old and tired, staff were friendly , breakfast good but the decor really needs bringing up to date I didn't want to sit on the bed cover and wore my socks on the carpet, the bathroom is old, location is good but wouldn't go again.

Being in the vicinity of downtown Banff is helpful, most accomodation along the main drag is the same but this place was pretty good for us. We had a double queen bed room with a small balcony which was nice in the sun when we were actually in the room. The hotels plumbing is a little loud in that you... More

Stayed 2 nights. Location brilliant as Banff centre is couple minutes walk away. Toilet in room blocked frequently and we were not that impressed with food. Breakfast was included but had to keep asking staff for Buffett to be topped up as they ran out frequently and were not replenished quickly. Ate at the restaurant for dinner and was disappointed...

We booked last minute and was probably the o my place on Banff under $500 a night that coul accommodate us. We stayed at the caribou lodge in December and being from the same company we expected something similar. The rooms are good size and the breakfast buffet included in the price was awesome, the service from the front desk... More

Only a 1 night stay for us here. Check in was pretty easy and our room was sufficient. It was just a typical hotel/motel room with the regular amenities. Bathroom was a bit dated, but everything worked fine. Was a bit disappointed with the customer service. I had two large suitcases in the lobby which were supposed to already have... More
