This is the second year we’ve based ourselves at the Ptarmigan for a week’s skiing at Lake Louise and Sunshine. Once again it was really enjoyable and the breakfast was something to look forward to each morning, especially the omelettes cooked to order. Our room (324) was lovely with a vaulted ceiling, balcony and mountain view. The bed was really comfortable and everything in the room was spotlessly clean. It wasn't too hot either which we found with our room on the ground floor last year. The bar area was buzzing each night and all the staff were extremely helpful. Hugo was very welcoming and remembered us from last year.
The hotel’s location is very handy for Safeway and the downtown area of Banff. You can get a ROAM pass from the desk which entitles you to free travel on the town’s buses. The ski bus stops right outside the door, another bonus. It takes a while to get used to the padlocks on the ski lockers though - allow extra time on your first day.
The area around the guest computer could do with a clean - especially the computer itself.
We really enjoyed our stay and hope to go back again next April.
