While not walking distance from downtown, there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel. Kitchens in each room.

The staff were great, the suite was clean and comfortable and the owner made us very welcome after a long journey to Banff. This was a perfect place for our Houston based family of five (three kids under 8yrs old - indoor play area and water slides a hit) and grandparents (visiting from Australia) to stay and explore the spectacular...

Thank you for staying with us, it looks like everyone had a great time on our waterslides and in our Playzone. Enough to keep everyone amused! We love the photo from your room also. Mt. Rundle looking great, as always. Come stay with us again! More

We had a great time here - it was impossible to get my five year old son off the softplay or the water slides. The rooms look out at the forest surrounding the resort - you can just make out the mountains behind them! Friendly and efficient staff and the real fires in the room are great.

Our family had an awesome time at Douglas Fir Resort! The loft condo was very cute and cozy. Kids had a variety of fun activities to choose from and mom and dad enjoyed wine in front of the wood burning fireplace. Would recommend for both families and couples ;-) We will definetly be returning in the very near future!

This was our first time at this hotel but not our first time in banff. This hotel is fantastic for families with young kids. The indoor playzone is just as good as some I have taken my kids to in Calgary and is included in your stay. The waterslides were a tonne of fun and my one year old really... More

Our family has stayed here on numerous occasions. We bring our pet bulldog as well thanks to their pet friendly condos. During this most recent stay, we had one of the loft condos which gave us a bit of extra room for us, two young kids and the dog. Plus, we had the breakfast-in-bed package which allowed us to escape... More

It’s lovely to hear you and your family had such a great time with us. The One Bedroom Loft Condos have lots of room and privacy for families staying at the Douglas Fir Resort and Chalets! We’re glad the breakfast kit worked out well for you, it just takes the hassle out of getting groceries yourself. Come back and stay... More

If you are traveling with kids or a group, this is by far the best value in Banff. All of the units have a nicely outfitted kitchen, there are a wide variety of packages, and it is super easy to book through their website. Our family loves the waterpark, underground parking (if you stay in the main lodge), and the... More

Booked the A frame chalet months in advance. Decided to add a day onto the end so my family didn't have to live out of the vehicle for a day. Upon calling the hotel I was told that it wouldn't be a problem. I also updated all my information at the same time. Pulled in at 10:30pm and guess what,... More
