This is our 3rd visit and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit again...definately not a cheap place to stay but worth every cent. Be aware the castle is old and bathrooms are small but the grandeur of the place is awesome. We were treated with a snow storm yesterday but loved the huge change in the scenery...A Christmas look in June!

Slightly mixed feelings about this hotel. On the one hand the service was excellent - especially given we were travelling with my wife in a wheelchair and nothing was too much trouble. The views from the room were wonderful but the room itself was not. For what it cost ( far and away the most expensive we stayed in in...

We stayed at the hotel this past May long weekend and were wowed by the luxury and relaxing atmosphere of the location. We stayed on the fifth floor which is the Fairmont Gold Experience and this included guest lounges, open fridges with cold drinks, coffee machines and breakfast, appetizers and dessert. We took in as many of the amenities as...

This hotel seriously has it all - incredible mountain views with hiking trails, fishing, golf, and elk sightings on the property, plus fantastic restaurants with a luxurious vibe. Be sure to check out the Waldhaus Restaurant down the hillside, it's a hidden gem of a beer garden that simply cannot be missed!

Think Scottish baronial castle in Canadian Rockies, with a dash of Disney thrown in for good measure. We were a bit unfortunate because our room was in the Stanley Thompson Wing, which is a real hike to get to from reception; slightly quicker route was available by walking outside but as we were in the middle of the snowstorm that...

This is a great old, historic hotel set in an incredible place. My wife and I were traveling through the area so stopped for lunch. Although we were not hotel guests, we were treated exceptionally well by all of the staff members we came in contact with. Lunch was very nice and we enjoyed a nice time touring the facility....

Wonderful historic hotel that is well maintained. Staff are fairly new as it is the beginning of the busy season but all were very friendly and helpful. My family does not consider other places to stay when we go to Banff. Lots of things to do inside the hotel. You can even walk the hotel dog who is called Bear...
