The hotel

There's a definite Western feel to this amiable family lodge in the heart of Banff. A truly authentic Rocky Mountain getaway, with many adventures and activities to enjoy including horseback riding, hiking, skiing and golf. The complimentary breakfast is sure to set you up refuelled and refreshed for another day out exploring, and upon returning back to your homely lodge accommodation, relax in the sauna. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with handcrafted log furniture, large windows, bright fabrics and historic photographs, a serene retreat after a day in the mountains.

We actually stayed for ten nights January and 8 February from the UK too… we returned because it is fabulously situated in the heart of Banff.

We actually stayed for ten nights January and 8 February from the UK too… we returned because it is fabulously situated in the heart of Banff. Our room was large and the beds are the most comfortable we have ever had in a hotel! Yes the decor is a bit dated but it has warm and cosy feel. The staff were lovely and on our second stay in the same room, which we requested, we had a lovely handwritten note and little bear chocolates. We are already booked again for January 2023😊 Read less

This hotel is charming. The rooms are dated but it kind of adds to the quaintness of the property. Check in was easy and the front desk staff were lovely. We arrived early and were pleasantly surprised to find our room ready. The parking situation is tight as others have noted. Guests blocking the ramp to drop skis doesn’t help. We did not order the included breakfast because it had to be ordered the evening prior and scheduled for a specific time. Our style of travel is to get up and go so that didn’t work for us. The room was very clean. Good water pressure in the shower. We did not hear any noise from any other guest rooms. The location is perfect! Easy walk to restaurants, pubs and shopping. It was a little chilly during our stay but the balcony would be fabulous for a summer visit. We would stay here again. Read less

Well located excellent hotel with nice decor. Close to free bus pick-up to various ski hills (2 minutes walk). Right downtown; close to restaurants and shops. Nice clean room with comfortable bed. Recycle box in each room. Very good breakfast delivered to the room (due to covid-19) - food still warm. Excellent service from staff: always ready to help. Sarah and Benjamin reacted quickly to each of our requests. It shows that management care about customer service. Everyone wants to make their customers a satisfied customer. Towel racks could be added to help dry towels, mainly with the limited service due to covid-19. Electrical outlets not positioned to fit coffee maker machine easily; but workable. Could add choice of cereals to the breakfast menu Read less

Last minute stay that costed way more than it was worth. Prices are high right now but $232 per night for a motel like stay is absurd. No fridge, temp control didn’t work in the room, shower head was terrible, very loud all night AND you have to pay to park your car in the hotel parkade. I have stayed at much nicer hotels and even the more… Read more
Last minute stay that costed way more than it was worth. Prices are high right now but $232 per night for a motel like stay is absurd. No fridge, temp control didn’t work in the room, shower head was terrible, very loud all night AND you have to pay to park your car in the hotel parkade. I have stayed at much nicer hotels and even the more expensive ones don’t make you pay for parking. No hot tub is disappointing and the “hot sauna” was not even ready for us when we wanted to use it. This hotel is worth $120 a night max for what it offers, if going to banff spend your money elsewhere and get your moneys worth. Also a tip for those staying here or the staff - check the alarm clocks so that there isn’t an alarm set for 530am from the previous person to wake you up on your vacation. Come on. Read less

This is a lovely hotel, perfectly located in central Banff. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful as you would expect from Canadians. My only disappointment was the breakfast, being vegan I could only choose apple or juice, it wouldn’t have taken much to add porridge or similar. Whilst I understand with Covid it’s… Read more
This is a lovely hotel, perfectly located in central Banff. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful as you would expect from Canadians. My only disappointment was the breakfast, being vegan I could only choose apple or juice, it wouldn’t have taken much to add porridge or similar. Whilst I understand with Covid it’s not possible to have breakfast in shared area the rules were lifted shortly after arrival but the room delivery system carried on. Anyway I would still come back to this hotel. Read less
