This hotel was very nice at first glance. The feel walking in was amazing. They have a big fireplace when you walk into the lobby. Our room seemed to be newly renovated which was nice. It was nice to have a balcony too. It wasn't until the morning that I noticed that the room could have been more carefully cleaned....

Booked on a bed and breakfast rate for two. Best deal in town. Very good breakfast buffet and the room was great. Opted for the standard room, as a room with a view is of no value... unless you go to Banff to stay in your room!

Had a really great stay and can't wait to come back again. The service was phenomenal, particularly James at the front desk. He was able to answer all of our questions and was supremely helpful and did so in a really happy manner. Thanks again.

I travelled with my husband and my 9 year old son to Banff in February, and we stayed at the Banff Caribou Lodge for 2 weeks. This was my first time in Canada, and my experience there has just made me more determined to go back! The Caribou is lovely. The staff are wonderful, and the facilities are excellent. I...

Nothing bad about this hotel, all positive. Only thing I can think of that was below standard is the fact that the underground parking stalls were very narrow, I mean VERY narrow and tight especially if you're driving a SUV or mini van. The breakfast buffet inside the Keg restaurant was excellent. It may or may not come with your...

Stayed here with my husband and daughter for 3 nights for a ski trip. Pros: Keg restaurant -nice hot tub - beautiful foyer with nice fireplace - nicely renovated bathrooms since my last stay in 2005 Cons: rooms are super small - no fitted sheet on beds- the sheet kept slipping off, revealing a nasty plastic mattress topper under... Icky....

Had a great stay this weekend at Caribou Lodge. Very nice hotel and excellent service. James was the best, whether it was where to eat, places to go out or activities for the day he was there to help. Definitely recommend staying here!

My wife and I are just back from a 10 day ski trip and had an excellent stay in this hotel. Check in was quick and efficient and staff were friendly and helpful throughout. We were booked in to a standard room but ended up in room 349 overlooking Banff Avenue with a personal balcony. Much better than I expected..!...

What a lovely hotel. It was a 10 minute walk from the centre of town, a walk we enjoyed on a daily basis. After a hearty breakfast we were picked up to go skiing. At the end of the day we went to the spa. The staff were very helpful and very obliging. I think we will come back to...
