Just returned from a wonderful week at Hidden Ridge. We rented a one bed with loft for a family of four which was very spacious (three double beds, two bathrooms), well appointed, rustic but comfortable. Loved the log burning fire and the view of the woods from the front door (regular sightings of mule dear from the doorstep).
Resort is about 1km from town and better for it as your really feel you are in the wilderness; hotel offers free bus tickets to downtown (service every 40 mins), so no issues there.
We were there over a public holiday weekend, so resorts was very busy but no real issues; yes, outdoor parking can be tricky, but we always found ample parking in the underground heated garage.
Hot tubs were always busy, but well worth a visit. No real noise problems in spite of the many groups of teenage guests; horns of passing trains were the only disturbances at night, but to be honest. this just adds to the atomosphere).
Staff friendly and helpful, Banff has plenty going on in the evenings and the skiing was spectacular in Sunshine and particularly Lake Louise. Recommend taking the Bow Valley parkway to Lale Louise rather than Highway 1 as scenery is worth the slower pace.
Highly recommended and would definitely go back.More
