Lovely surroundings. Reception staff warm and friendly. Waitresses could be more pleasant, a few sour faces. Pretty chilly in the restaurant. However, have been before and it was friendlier and warmer. Food has always been excellent and I have had different dishes each time. Three cheers for the chefs.

Booked one night when visiting family. There is no lift and all the ground floor rooms were being renovated so had to either climb around 20 stirs from reception or drive round to the rear and enter by the fire escape. Not ideal as the fire escape can only be opened from the inside! Room had been renovated and was...

Stayed at the Banff Springs Hotel for one night, Sunday. The dining room was very busy with locals, which is always a good sign. Booking in was no problems. Room was fine although the bathroom shower was a bit short on the length of hose, so had to bend a little although there was plenty room for more height. Other...

We went to the Banff Springs Hotel based on the internet description. The 'must have' was wi-fi on that night. We chose a sea view room but the view was only if you were standing up. We ate dinner in the dining room. My wife and I both ordered beef which only came cooked well done, no medium or rare....
