Superb selection with every taste imaginable. Need to have a reservation in order to eat. I would highly recommend this to everyone as the town of Banff attends this brunch

“Very nice breakfast buffet”
4 of 5 stars 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”
5 of 5 stars 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.
