Again we return to Banff post surgery, the hotel found us in easy walking distance to the hospital. Always nice to see the staff at Bow View Lodge and their smiling faces. It is nice to be recognized when you return and they are accomedating to your needs whether advice where to eat or by calling a cab. The hotel... More

Just spent the last 4 nights at the Bow View and while it's not fancy I was very happy with my stay. I booked this Lodge about 6 months ago due to reasonable reviews and cost. Banff is an expensive town to stay and you need to book early or go in the low season. The Lodge is old and... More

Most expensive hotel we stayed in on our trip and was the only one without free WiFi and the room looked dated and was drafty. The whole hotel could do with a facelift but because it is in banff they can over charge and under deliver

A small hotel with great view over the Bow River and mountains and right in the centre of town !! Reception a bit unfriendly , relatively large room, clean, quiet, good size balcony. Hotel parking the biggest problem, not always available after 5 PM. Banff is expensive so this was a bargain at $150 Can per. Huge numbers of Asian... More

If you looking for a decent and average accommodation this is the place. We stayed for 2 nights with a river view room. If you really want to save some money, just book the rooms with no view (car park) because there really isn't much of a view or difference in room, or service. You here just to sleep! All... More

Hotel was great. Other than our bathroom had someone else's hair stuck to the side of the shower wall. But other than that was great. Locatton was close to downtown and the view from the room was awesome.

Location, free parking and views were the only positive points. The only friendly staff was the young man who was at the reception the day we left. The girl who was at the reception when we arrived was rude. The nigth porter never responded our good nigth wishes nor even looked at us when we asked for umbrellas. Internet was... More

It isn't fancy, but is it clean and friendly and has everything you need in a hotel room. Plus, the location next to the river can't be beat! Away from the traffic and partying hordes on Banff Ave, meaning it is quiet and old-school.
