This luxury hotel with a view was on my bucket list. It really is a big castle. Pretty from the waterside. Our room was fine but the rooms and bathrooms are smaller than you might expect. Friends room was on a higher floor an evidently...More
You approach a massive baronial manor that's like nothing else you will see in Canada (well not as a hotel). Room 987 provided us with stunning views across Bow River and at a height to leave the noise of arriving coaches and cars way below...More
Worth treating your family to the castle in the mountains. The views, service, location and amenities were fantastic. In between hiking in Lake Louise and kayaking Moraine Lake, we spent time at the hotel. We saw elk herds on the golf course, walked into the...More

You can take the shuttle bus to go skiing, or if you want, walk into town and relax and enjoy your time there.
As for the outdoors, Suflur Mountain Provides a great 1 day hike, from the bottom to the top, and then to different peaks all along the ridge. You can hike up and avoid the lift fee and bring some lunch and snacks and just explore around. At the end of the day, you can take the lift down, since it is free during the winter season.
I would recommend this is you Do decide to stay at Banff instead of LL.
