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...

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room was a good size with a fantastic bathroom. Great views overlooking the mountains. The resort is about 25 minutes walk out of town and is on the no 2 bus route. During the summer season a complementary shuttle runs from the hotel. They have a hot tub. We...

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.

Stayed here over the last few days and it was comfortable and welcoming. We got a twin bed ground floor room with a cosy open fireplace, even though it was cold outside the room was warm enough without a fire, but we just had to light it. The fire was already set and a load of wood was available just...

After being on the go since 10am, flying from San Francisco to Calgary and another 1.5 hour drive we were checked in at 8.30pm with a 4 yo and we were excited to find that our accommodation had what looked like a decent restaurant attached. There were vacant tables. However the manager decided in his wisdom we could order room...

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
