“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

The hotel is about a mile walk from downtown Banff but so worth the stay. The room, with a queen bed, was quite large. We had a gas fireplace in our room (although we did not use it), refrigerator, safe box and a steam shower! The hotel is clean and the front desk staff were quite helpful. The fitness room is very basic - one treadmill, one bicycle and one stairmaster but at least they have a fitness room. There were two hikes within walking distance from the hotel.

We only had a basic room here with a tiny fridge and microwave. Rooms was a little dark but have been because it rained the whole time we were here. There was a balcony, but too cold and wet to sit out.

The overall impression of the Tunnel Mountain Resort is quite appealing. It is situated close both to nice hikes and Banff Downtown (not so difficult in a town like Banff). But there are some details that diminsh our assessment. First the room was spacious but extremely gloomy. This may be beneficial in midsummer conditions but it was annoying in the cooler conditions we found there in June. Second the bathroom contains only shower, tub and toilet. The washbowl was outside as a part of the kichenette. We don't appreciate the mingling of food preparation and personal hygiene. On the other hand the facilities in Tunnel Mountain Resort are convincing, e. g. they have a good fitness room.

My wife and I stayed here last week based on Burnabyboy's review. I highly recommend this hotel for those looking for a decent room for a reasonable price. The room was clean and spacious, and the bed comfortable. My wife thought is was a great find.

We booked a cabin for four adults for three nights and were very pleased with the accommodation. Our cabin had a kitchen and dining area with a fireplace, living room,, one bedroom and a loft with two double beds as well as a lovely deck which was accessible through some sliding doors. We were able to watch a young buck whitetail deer just below our deck for quite a while the first evening which was certainly not something you can do just anywhere. The cabin is not huge, but was clean and fully equipped and certainly served our purposes well. We used the community Barbeque one night to cook steaks while the rest of the dinner was prepared in the kitchen. Very pleasant. Loved the fireplace which we used every night and wood was very reasonable to buy. Didn't use the pool and hot tub, but they looked very inviting. Very pleased with our choice.

It was just what we wanted- up on a mountain away from the crowded downtown, nice little complete kitchen with dishes, silverware and a couple of pots, sliding glass doors onto a little patio, updated but not too new (very important for us), very friendly and helpful staff, reasonable price. Could use some ovenware.

Room Tip: If you're looking for a spot for someone who is sensitive to new carpets, new paint, car exhaust...

To our valued guests,

Thank you for your review of our hotel, it is encouraging to see what you experienced while staying in the rockies.
Having a full kitchen can help when you are on holiday in so many ways and with our rooms gives that wee home away from home feel.
We have made a note of the suggestion for ovenware, thank you again.


Your sincerely
The team at Tunnel Mountain Resort
