This was a well maintained, newly renovated hotel on the strip. However, (probably to maintain the quietness of the hotel, though greatly appreciated to be away from the extreme club noise in the wee hours unlike the downtown centre) it's missing something. Everything closed by 11pm, a little longer walk into town (10 min, still as close as 1/2 the... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your comments. I'm sorry we didn't meet your needs later into the evening! The Keg will be open with a limited menu between 10:30 and midnight but we're always happy to recommend delivered service (maybe not fine dining!) right to your door. We also have a downtown nightclub, Wild Bill's, which allows for... More

Beautiful, location appropriate interior. Rooms quite small but if you get one on the front side, the view is pretty. Rooms look like they've been recently renovated & had very comfortable beds. We had 3 rooms in different locations on the same floor and they all varied in light, warmth and space beware. Restaurant is average. Very select food types.... More

Rooms were large comfortable and clean. Continental breakfast was poor with very poor baked goods. Hotel staff seemed unwilling to accept feedback about breakfast and insisted I spoke to Restaurant manager who was defensive. It is a good ten mimute walk to town which might be a drawback for some. The spa was excellent. Internet was good and free. Our... More

3 night stay. enjoyed the room & could just see Cascade mountain through the window. Very quiet and slept well in very comfy beds. Room big enough because we did not spend that much time in it. The only downside was that our window looked over the back of the hotel and the flue of the fire in the lobby,... More

Our stay at the Bnaff Cariboue Lodge was a very pleasant experience. We would have liked to stayed longer but our itinerary would not permit us doing that. The entrance is very inviting and pleasant. Friendly personal. Our room was just nice and clean as it could be!!! It was in the mountain theme with beautiful fall tree paintings on... More

We stayed in Banff for a few days before taking the "Rocky Mountaineer" train to Vancouver - which was breathtaking. Caribou Lodge is quite a large establishment (190 rooms) but the staff are friendly and helpful. They have tried to create an atmosphere of a log cabin, and so the decor tends to be brown and darkish, and the rooms... More

My sister and I really enjoyed our four nights here. Very comfortable and the level of service is superb, something we rarely get in this UK. Great soak on the hot pool, rooms very well appointed, restaurant serves good food. The Concierge service most helpful with booking tours and supplying information. Banff has the best location of anywhere I have... More

We stayed for 2 nights then went back to stay for another 3 nights after going to Jasper and back. The hotel was good but not excellent which is what I thought it would be. The staff are great at reception and were very informative about the area. The hotel was only a 10 minute walk into town which was... More

The lobby is lovely, fireplace perfect, friendly staff and all. After a long day flying to Calgary and then the bus ride to Banff the Lodge and Keg restaurant were a real welcoming sight. Prices at the Keg were quite reasonable and there were many options available. Just a fifteen minute walk to the down town area, lots to see... More
