Quite a novel experience. Not luxury but did the job. It had a kettle but you had to limbo dance to plug it in anywhere - quite dangerous. The hotel was like a labyrinth, finding the breakfast room was tricky and getting a table was a struggle. Breakfast wasn't fab. Funnily enough none of this mattered as staying in Banff was so delightful.

Central location, very helpful staff, buffet breakfast included. We were at the front of the building but weren’t bothered by any noise. No aircon, ceiling fan was adequate but maybe not in the summer. Bed comfortable, shower fine. Confusing layout, we got lost quite a few times. Enjoyable stay

Our stay at this hotel was overall very pleasant. The room was well-sized, clean and comfy. It seems rustic, but not dated. The only features we were missing were a decent aircon and a fridge. The view from the room was out to a construction site, but also to the mountains. The hotel is conveniently located downtown and just a short walk from bus… Read more
Our stay at this hotel was overall very pleasant. The room was well-sized, clean and comfy. It seems rustic, but not dated. The only features we were missing were a decent aircon and a fridge. The view from the room was out to a construction site, but also to the mountains. The hotel is conveniently located downtown and just a short walk from bus stations, restaurants, supermarkets or the ATM. With this unfortunately comes a lot of noise, especially at night. The bar across the street doesn't seem to have a noise policy and keeps playing loud music well into the night. After that you can still hear the patrons roaming the streets, yelling and hollering. You can't really close the window for lack of an aircon. If you have a room close to reception (i.e. 214-216), you will also get a lot of noise from that as well. I feel like the reception staff could do a better job keeping the noise down after 10pm. Other than that staff was always friendly and helpful. Breakfast was basic, but sufficient. Breakfast staff was friendly, especially Shania who was not only lovely, but very diligent. Apart from the noise level, there isn' t really anything that would keep me from returning here, as we were satisfied with the room, the breakfast, the location and the service overall. Read less

A very characterful hotel full of features and very close to the main downtown area. Had the feel of a frontier hotel.Rooms were very comfortable and clean ours had a balcony with views of the mountains.
