“Great place to stay”
Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

El Toro Restaurant is excellent, many amenities but laundry is expensive (cost me 10,25$ for one complete wash and dry), hot tub is nice and clean, although it's located in the reception. (!) Service was more than perfect, nice staff, felt really welcoming. Do highly recommend.

I recently spent four nights at Irwin's, and found the staff to be very friendly, and the room to be very clean and comfortable. My room had a mini fridge, sink, and coffee maker also, which were nice to have, as I could make my own breakfast and lunch instead of dining out. The beds are newer and good quality also, with nice duvets. There was also a nice, clean hot tub on the main floor to soak your sore muscles after a good hike! (They have a sauna as well, but I didn't use it.) Also, the restaurant attached to the hotel won an award for the best breakfast in Banff, so if you don't want to eat in your room, that would be a good option. Overall, I would say this hotel is an excellent value, with helpful staff, and clean, comfortable rooms. I would stay there again without any question and recommend it to others.

We recently stayed four nights at the Irwin Mountain Inn. We had a great stay there. The staff is very friendly and considerate. They were quick to help with any of our needs. We have a daughter who is in a wheel chair and they were very helpful in making our stay an enjoyable one. The rooms were clean and spacious. We stayed in a family suite. The fridge and microwave in the room help make the stay a little less expensive. The Inn is ideally located with just a short walk to Banff's shopping area. We also enjoyed supper at the El Toro restaurant which is conveniently located in the hotel. We highly recommend this hotel!

We stayed 3 nights in a family suite, which slept six and saved us from having to book two rooms! The suites have a separated bedroom (for mom and dad), two large flatscreen t.v.'s, microwave, nicely sized fridge, two sinks and table and chairs!
There was a little balcony for ours looking out onto one of the picturesque mountains too!
This Inn has a nice large hot tub and sauna room, a good excercise/equipment area, and offers the use of the Rundlestone Lodge's swimming pool too! We were quite impressed with the capable desk staff informing us of these ammenities, taking and giving messages, and giving us directions.
Even the cleaning staff offered usa friendly greeting each time encountered in the hallways. They never knocked if we hung out our sign either.
The El Toro restaurant had delicious and affordable food, with our room card giving us an additional 10% discount.
The two most important aspects of accomodations to me are location and comfort, and this Inn satisfied both. It was an easy walk to the shopping strip of Banff, and even to the river and creek trails. The beds were uber comfortable, and even had a nice heavy down duvet for when it cooled off!
The one issue that some guests were complaining about was the excessive warmth of the rooms (espec. on the third floor). Personally, that was remedied easily enough with either the air conditioning unit, or opening the windows to enjoy the cool of the evening. I even heard management say they were in the processes of intstalli

We recently stayed at the Irwin Mountain Inn, and had a great time. The rooms were clean and well put together, the bathroom was good and the mountain view was excellent. We had a balcony! And best of all, this hotel is dog friendly. I would highly recommend.

We stayed here in a family suite for 5 days. The cleaning services daily were excellent. Our room was well appointed, and while there aren't bedside tables, we discovered that the top of the headboards are great for keeping phones out of baby hands! The staff were consistently friendly and offered great recommendations for ordering in dinners. Would stay here again for sure!! There is wifi in the rooms- not the strongest but got the job done. Reminded us to quit checking email and get outside into nature!! Location is excellent, three minute walk to downtown

Stayed here for 3 nights in September 2012 . The room was basic but very clean and the beds were really comfortable. The reception staff were always friendly and very helpful. We had breakfast in the restaurant good value for money we also ate a steak there one evening it was cooked to perfection.
