“Very nice breakfast buffet”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is the hotel cafe (Banff Park Lodge) and the breakfast buffet was one of the nicest I've seen. Lots of variety from fruit and cereals to eggs, pancakes and french toast.

Constantly re-stocked and good quality food.

“Perfection”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I stayed at the Banff Park Lodge toward the end of August. It was perfect right in downtown but beside the river. It was great to be near the nightlife but away from it if you choose. Room was quite and very very clean. The staff at the front desk were awesome. I don't remember his name but he had a shaved head and he was amazing... Great customer service. The bar there was great and bartender was awesome. I loved that the pool/hot tub area was restricted to kids after hours! Also they really make the effort to be environmentally friendly by allowing people to reuse their towels and sheets if they choose. I thought the idea was a great touch. Overall all I can't say enough about this hotel. There is no negatives to this hotel at all.

“Cold Breakfast, Over Priced”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

I normally enjoy the Sunday Brunches here, but last weekend I had a different experience when I came in for breakfast. I ordered the french toast, which was dry and cold. My Mom ordered two eggs with salmon and toast. The waiter forgot to ask how she would like her eggs done so they came out extra runny. Her eggs were cold and her toast was so under toasted that it just appeared to be dried bread. The prices were also considerably high for what was being served. The waiter only came around once to check on our drinks as well.

“Average Food”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Public buffet style for group. Average food, pastry chef is wonderful. The food could have been much better. They did not provide any variety day to day.
