We received a very warm welcome from the reception staff, late on cold -19c January night, Our one bedroom condo was warm but very small and very tired, it was in a serious need of updating, it was very basic indeed and everything was very worn, The bed and pillows were very lumpy, the sheets although clean were ripped and had holes. Beware of staying in a ground floor condo as children tap dancing in ski boots above you is very irritating.
The location is good about 10mins from Bannf, we had a car so cannot comment on the bus service. Although near to the road and Trans Canada highway it was quiet, just the occasional train horn.
The staff at the resort were all very friendly and the cleaners made a fair job every day, in fact changing the laundry more often than we expected.
There was plenty to do at the resort, but we did not use the facilities, we did go on the free organised walks and saw some great scenery and wildlife. We had elk grazing nearby.
We came to Bannf to be at a wedding, If you ski there is plenty of choice, if you are non skiers like us the a week is about enough.
Bring plenty of money everything is expensive, (except petrol).
It is a very beautiful area in the winter, and I sure equally as much in the other seasons, and we are glad we came, when it snowed it was all cleared quickly by the resort staff,
As you will gather we have no complaints about the staff, just the very small tatty condo. (we even kept our cases in the car).
The car parking is free here, on our one night staying at another resort we paid 35dollars to park over night.
Good places to eat, Bison Bistro, Tony Romas, Bumpers, avoid the Old Spagetti Factory, cheap but awful.
