Lovely clean rooms - the bathrooms seemed to be recently redone. Great stuff for kids - waterslides, pool, play equipment. Only downside is that beds were a little uncomfortable and can't walk to town.

We recently stayed in this unit with 5 children and 5 adults. There was ample room and we all enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was surprisingly well equipped (right down to a cheese grater). The unit was also very clean which was much appreciated. We used the outdoor BBQ's, which was very handy. The kids really enjoyed the water slides and the playcentre. The only inconvenience was that it is a bit tricky getting to the waterslides. It was very quiet and I would definitely reccommend it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review of our new Family Suites. These rooms were completed in December 2009 and they have been very popular ever since. Perfect for a large family or multiple families traveling together. Glad you enjoyed your stay and maybe we'll see you back!

The location was great. The property was not far from town. The unit was clean and well stocked. It was very handy having a full kitchen so we did not have to eat out all of the time. The kids loved the water slide.

The nicest, most family resort we have visited. The indoor play area and pool with the two water slides really made our 6 year old happy. The location is wonderful and I can’t say enough about how great this place is—enjoy.

We just came back from our second trip to the Douglas Fir. For people who keep kosher, this is a wonderful option. Having a full kitchen and a staff that is willing to help with sabbath issues works great for us. We had a pleasant stay

We recently went to Banff for two days with relatives from Germany. They absolutely loved it! The one bedroom condo (725 sq.ft.) was at the higher top of our price range, but we found coupons in the Travel Alberta magazine that gave us $100.00 off! Still the price was steep, especially when we had trouble starting the fire in the fireplace and the second toilet became plugged, but the service was great, they came and fixed the problems right a way and even gave us a free log to help with the fireplace.
