“Only used the Gym facilities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I was looking for place to work out while spending time in Banff. The Banff Centre sits just above the town with awsome views. The gym was excellant, olympic size pool, steams rooms, rock climbing room(even across the ceiling) and all very, very clean. $10.00 a day for a drop in!

“What a location! What a cultural centre!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

There are year-round cultural events taking place here. In late October/early November, there is the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. In 2011, there were many, many great films, usually with the director in attendance. There are good places to eat, and the hotel, while far from luxurious, is clean and comfortable, and guests can use the excellent fitness centre.

“Outstanding facility.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

The Banff Centre has so much to see and do. Many excellent facilities. A wonderful complex, a very peaceful place to stay and an exceptional restaurant in The 3 Ravens all set amidst beautiful grounds. The many buildings are very interesting in their own right.
