We stayed at the Juniper for one night on May 31. The location is excellent - it is a short distance from downtown Banff by car so it is very peaceful. You could still walk into town if you wanted. Every room has a mountain view although the south-facing rooms have the best view. Will at the front desk was very good - he was friendly, fast and accommodating.
The room was quaint and updated, although the bed was somewhat uncomfortable. We had breakfast the next morning at the bistro. Service was slow, but the eggs bennies were delicious. There is a patio at the restaurant which was a great spot to drink coffee and enjoy the view.
We were lucky enough to wake up to a grizzly bear outside our window in the parking lot. We watched from inside, but too many patrons rushed outside to get as close as possible to take pictures.
We will definitely stay at The Juniper again!
