Read all the reviews and was a little concerned..... Nothing could have been more incorrect than the negative things I read. We were given an upgraded room with mountain view without asking for one! The room was, spacious, clean and with an excellent bathroom. Both Queen size beds were very comfortable. The lobby, reastaurant and bar were bright and friendly with an excellent apri ski happy 4 hours in the bar.
When out Canadian friends arrived to spend 3 days with us they were immediately given the room next to ours.
All the reception staff (particularly Barry) were helpful as were the restaurant and bar staff and the maintenance man who fixed our faulty light within the hour. PLUS the ski bus stops right outside the Ptarmigan, we could only look on as people from other hotel lugged all their ski kit up and down the road to our bus stop.
The hotel says that it is 5 mins. from "downtown" Banff - this is an exageration as the longest it took us to reach the shops was 3 mins. Wonderful hotel well worth its 3 stars in a really good location. We have been to Banff before and stayed elsewhere but after our stay at the Ptarmigan will go back there every time and may never ski in Europe again.
