BML is a very cozy lodge with excellent service, great view and facilities. Will recommend it to others and wish to come back later. The only concern is that the location is a bit far from everything if you don't have a car.

Would stay again for the rooms, however, the food quality and service time was very long. The area is very beautiful and enjoyed walking around, the rooms have no fridges of which is frustrating, however the fireplace is really nice!

This is the 2nd stop of our holiday where we spent 3 nights in an upper floor premiere room with king bed and large bathroom with a fantastic claw foot bath which is heaven after all the walking. The vaulted ceiling and fire place are nice and the balcony where you can sit and watch elk or listen to the...

We have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed! Staff is over the top, the second floor rooms are my favourite as they have the open ceilings and claw foot tubes. If you get a chance go out for their thanks giving weekend as the food is amazing. Thank you for such amazing memories Regards Christine

We stayed two nights in a lovely cabin-esque room, which had open wooden beams with vaulted ceiling, a giant bathroom with lovely claw-foot tub, private covered balcony at the rear of the property, and a fireplace. The only drawbacks were the thin walls - we heard our neighbors fight, and then make up... neither was particularly enjoyable, and the bed...

The fireplace in each room is such a sweet bonus for the alpine location. The rooms are however, getting a bit tired, especially the bathrooms. The rooms can be nosy, as far as hearing neighbours plumbing. That's annoying. Great dinner and brunch options. Lovely setting. Very convenient pick up and drop off in town, as the resort is located up...

Our first impression of the hotel wasn't particularly good, as we found the room to be gloomy and a little cramped, with two queen size beds dominating it. However, there was ample storage space, the bathroom was large and clean(though some of the fittings, eg washbasin taps)needed upgrading. We were too tired to eat in the restaurant on our first...

Nice little spot on the mountain but could use updating and thorough cleaning. Probably better for ski season, dusty room had dingy smell to it. Not bad value for money, staff were friendly. It can get noisy old building has little sound barrier and some sort of generator running early and late.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a peaceful retreat on Tunnel Mountain in Banff, AB. The lodge is surrounded by 9 acres of towering fir, pine, and spruce trees, yet just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the shopping, nightlife and restaurants that are on offer in downtown Banff. A favourite visitor pastime is to observe the deer and elk who frequently nibble on the lawn, right outside the lodge's windows. The lodge has 108 guest rooms, an outdoor hot tub, and several options for dining, making it the ideal location for a weekend getaway, wedding, or corporate retreat. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts' family of companies. Rooms at the lodge have fieldstone wood-burning fireplaces, cozy duvets, LCD televisions and Blu-ray players. Many feature patios or balconies. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect the mountain lifestyle in Banff-the accommodation is anything but 'cookie cutter.' The outdoor stainless steel hot tub is best enjoyed after an invigorating hike, bike or ski on one of the nearby trails-or perhaps to aid digestion after a sumptuous meal in the lodge's highly acclaimed restaurant, Sleeping Buffalo. ... more   less
