I stayed at the Caribou lodge at the beginning of August, a busy time in Banff but it didn't feel that way in the beautiful sanctuary that is the Caribou lodge. The hotel has a warm, authentic Alpine feel and is homely and inviting.. my suite was impeccably clean and I really enjoyed the spa bath in my room. The... More

The Banff Caribou Lodge & spa was a place I'll never forget. Entering our room it was very cosy and home like. Cleanliness was great and a nice view out to the mountains. The spa was a sight to see with gym facilities in the next room as well for the fitness lover. Ample parking spaces and very friendly staff... More

Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the hot pool was also quiet and nice. The hotel is on the quiet stretch of Banff. My wife and I were very pleased with the hotel. It's about a 15 minute walk from downtown but they do provide bus passes for those who don't want the walk.

Hot tub was huge and great. The rooms were cute (a few design flaws but cute) and rustic. Parking was easy, and the location was a walk with sensible shoes or a quick bus ride. Breakfast was good. The bar staff was nice. Overall I really enjoyed it. We had a Living Social coupon so it was a good value,... More

We were really looking forward to staying in a typical wood cabin, and the Caribou Lodge delivered on this. Benefits are: slightly quieter end of town, free underground car parking, short walk to shops, in-house Steak restaurant, clean room, balcony, good size bathroom. Negatives: Fairly small room, with nowhere to really store suitcases unless you unpacked all your clothes and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and found this a good base for exploring Banff. The hotel is a little tired and the gym facilities were absolutely rubbish! The on site restaurant was great. We had breakfast every morning and it was really good plus a great evening meal one night. The walk into town takes about 15-20 mins but... More

Underwhelming for sure. The pillows could use replacing, gross blood stains etc...no proper fitted sheet on the mattress. The room was surprisingly small. The people at the desk were very nice though. Would stay somewhere else next time.

This is a lovely hotel with a fabulous spa. I had a fantastic massage and the hot pool is great. You also get a card to use the buses which is a bonus. Sadly the hotel is let down by the restaurant which is a total rip off. Had a very expensive tiny plate of nothing and then felt pretty... More

We were there in Jun, it was the last night stay of the Rocky Mountaineer's 5 day tour. Usually, the hotel reception advises us all the transportation arrangement of the following day. However, this hotel's reception could not help anything. The hotel has 2 lifts but it is small and move very slow. There were always too much people waiting... More
