“Always look forward to returning to Tunnel Mountain!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2011

My husband and I have stayed at Tunnel Mountain Resort at least 10 times over the past few years and we have always had wonderful experiences here. We visit Banff at least 3 - 4 times a year and have stayed at several hotels in Banff in the past and by far this is your best deal. We stay in the Executive suite as it is only the two of us, and it is perfect. My husband loves the shower/steam and I love the jetted bathtub. The hotel is located away from the hussel of dowtown Banff but it is close enough to be right downtown in minutes.
I have recommended Tunnel Mountain to friend & family who have always been very pleased with their experience also.

I have stayed at many hotels in the banff area, including the Fairmont 3 times. This resort is tremendous value and more than meets our needs for a ski holiday. We paid $79 a night, the best value I have ever had for the room we got. The only draw back was the room was hot.

This was our fifth visit to this resort which is part way up Tunnel Mountain and has stunning views of Mount Rundle. We like being a short walk or 5 minute ride away from the busy downtown area. There is a Banff shuttle bus that runs often to and from the town. The rooms are clean and the service was great. We are a retired couple but this resort would be very good value for families too. We hope to return soon.

Just wanted to write a positive review about my stay at Tunnel Mountain.
The room my friends and I frequented were beautiful.
Heated floors, glass shower and jacuzzi tub.
There was a nice living room area for my friends and I to hang and enjoy the beautiful views this hotel has to offer.
We enjoyed the 2 hot tubs as well.
The walk to town from the hotel is also gorgeous... if you would like to cab they include vouchers:)
We will be coming back next time we are in the Rockies!!!!

The location of the resort was really close to the downtown area, which was nice, and there is always an amazing view of the mountains wherever you go. Great location, and the front desk was very helpful in giving tips where to eat, and what sites to see during our stay. Rooms are large with a nice cabin feel, and reasonable prices!

Stayed for 3 nights with my mother on a trip to Banff. We got a two bedroom chalet, that had a kitchenette, fireplace and balcony. There was plenty of room for just the two of us and the beds were comfortable and clean. The hotel is located pretty far from the townsite - a very good hike down the mountain. However there is a Bus that stops directly outside the lobby and is well worth the daily cost for the pass. Banff can be expensive for hotels and I felt this hotel was well worth the money for the size of the rooms.

I just love the executive suite! The steam shower and separate jetted tub are wonderfully relaxing and luxurious. The heated tiles in the bathroom area is a excellent addition to an already impressive bathroom section. The king sized bed offered a comfortable restful sleep and the fireplace offered a warm peaceful ambience to the room. Draw backs: sedament from pipes in the tub were a bit of a turn off, and cover from fireplace was ascue showing an unattractive view of the motor/etc. Otherwise the view from the patio of the mountains and the amazing bathroom amenitites sell me on this hotel every time - this is my second visit to the executive suite. I almost dont want to tell anyone about this great room for risk of increasing demand and therefore increasing the price.
