Well..... having read some of the reviews we were a little aprehensive, there was no need to be, the staff on the front desk were very friendly and helpful and the lodge was well run and we never had a problem during our stay.
The lobby is rather plain, but when you are in there, you are usually getting help and info from the front desk staff, so don't really notice the decor. You get free safe deposit boxes and there is a purpose built ski storage room so you don't have to cram your boots and ski's into a wet smelly locker after a hard days skiing. By the way, the ski shuttle buses are run with military precision and are always on time and stop only a short distance from the lodge,
The rooms are very clean spacious and have a TV,fridge and tea/coffe making facilities. We asked for a quite, high floor room with a sea view!!!! but actually got a quite, high floor room with a fabulous Canadian Rockies veiw to the right of our balcony......... 2 out of 3 ain't bad !!!!
The bed deserves special note, it was the most comfortable that we have ever had on holiday and provided a good nights sleep.
The breakfast was more than we expected, with a selection of cereals, wonderful muslei, fresh fruit salad, yogut, warm freshly baked muffins and danish pastries, toast and a choice of fruit juices, tea and freshly brewed coffee.
A nice touch was that the lodges huge Fir tree still had it's Christmas lights on, as did the other lodges, hotels and shops on Banff Ave which gave a great atmosphere to the place. There was also an array of shops, restaurants and bars within just a few minutes walk of the lodge.
All in all, the Banfff Aspen Lodge and it's staff played a big part in one of the best skiing holidays my wife and I have ever had.
When we visit Banff again we will not hesitate in returning to this great value well run lodge
Thanks to all the team
