We stayed here three nights in August 2014 in a king size bedroom suite. The room was not ready on time and we were asked to come back in an hour. Not impressed and not even an offer of another room that was ready or complimentary tea or coffee. So we went down to Banff, had a coffee and returned on the hour. Our room was ready with the usual apologies. We were left to lift our own heavy luggage up two flights of stairs from the car park 200 plus meters away. So far a very bad experience. However,the room was very nice as was the bathroom so that made me feel a bit better. The breakfast the next morning was very good and the overall appearance of the hotel was very good. Free wi fi available and a nice outdoor spa was another two nice touches. Overall a nice experience after the first very poor performance. Take note hotel and step up in these areas.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a peaceful retreat on Tunnel Mountain in Banff, AB. The lodge is surrounded by 9 acres of towering fir, pine, and spruce trees, yet just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the shopping, nightlife and restaurants that are on offer in downtown Banff. A favourite visitor pastime is to observe the deer and elk who frequently nibble on the lawn, right outside the lodge's windows. The lodge has 108 guest rooms, an outdoor hot tub, and several options for dining, making it the ideal location for a weekend getaway, wedding, or corporate retreat. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts' family of companies. Rooms at the lodge have fieldstone wood-burning fireplaces, cozy duvets, LCD televisions and Blu-ray players. Many feature patios or balconies. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect the mountain lifestyle in Banff-the accommodation is anything but 'cookie cutter.' The outdoor stainless steel hot tub is best enjoyed after an invigorating hike, bike or ski on one of the nearby trails-or perhaps to aid digestion after a sumptuous meal in the lodge's highly acclaimed restaurant, Sleeping Buffalo. ... more less
