Swopped a timeshare week for a 2 bedroom condo here. Initially was disappointed with the resort as a whole and the size of the unit. However the place grew on us. The staff are marvellous, particularly the Australian guy on the reception desk (sorry have forgotten your name) and Michelle , another Australian, who took us on some spectacular walks as part of the free activities organised by the resort.
The units are small by American standards but are clean, have everything you need and the beds are very comfy.
We used the shuttle bus a few times when we wanted to sample the very nice local beers and found it to be well organised and reliable.
Location couldn't be faulted , an easy drive to Lake Louise, lake Minnewanka etc , all fantastic. Michelle recommended we hired cleats from a local store in Bear Street to hike Johnson Canyon which was amazing.
The Australian guy recommended Tooloulou's in Banff for breakfast and dinner , which is a great place to eat in. We have never seen such an extensive breakfast menu, loved it.
We could hear our neighbours sometimes but they were a pretty quiet bunch. We would definitely stay here again .
