We have just returned from our stay at the Banff International. This is the third time we have stayed here and we find it ideally situated for all the amenities Banff has to offer. As usual all the staff were really helpful and really friendly, they will try to help with any issues you have. The room we had was very spacious with an enormous bathroom and very comfortable beds the only real problem we had with the room was that even with the heating turned right down the room was stiflingly hot at times and the WIFI was very hit and miss which we found very frustrating. We ate at the attached restaurant Rickys a couple of times and found the food satisfactory we would definitely recommend the chocolate brownie.
Overall we had a really good stay but i was wondering if someone could explain something to me. One evening my wife went to the bar for some drinks to take to our room but was told that we could not have a draft beer in a glass or a glass of wine but they could let us have a bottle of beer. I find this strange as they seemed quite ok with us going to the liquor store to buy wine and beer to take to our room. I would have thought they would have preferred to keep the trade within the hotel.
