I stayed at this hotel a few years ago and really enjoyed the room and free buffet breakfast. I also liked the location is right on the edge of downtown Banff so you can walk everywhere. The weekend, my friend and I had small suite on the third floor. Not sure I would call it a suite as it seemed...

I have stayed in 10+ different hotels in town but find myself always coming back to the Ptarmigan. Nothing matches it in terms of value for money, location and the friendliness of the staff who work there. The rooms are well kept, the beds are AMAZING and the workers there can't do enough to help you. For people who are...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a week and had an incredible time! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They were eager to help us get our room ready before regular check in time, friendly at the buffet and restaurant/bar, and helped us plan our Johnston canyon ice walk. We also loved the location of our...

I booked this hotel without reading the reviews...it was in need of an update! The rooms are just ok as the beds were old and had lumpy padding under the sheets, the bathroom was very old and tire, the toilet seat was broken (yet the staff fixed it quickly), the "Health Center" was pitiful (just eliminate it as it's that...

Friendly reception staff, very dated room but clean. Lumpy bed and very 'tired' bathroom. Would imagine could be very noisy when full. Definitely not above 2 star standard felt very budget type standard. Probably suited to younger clientele. Restaurant food surprisingly good quality and very good value for money. Good central position. Nearby train track whistles provided an interesting lullaby....

We had such a beautiful stay at this hotel, my girlfriend and I. They couldn't be more helpful. We were advised about a wonderful restaurant and many things to do in Banff. As well as good advise on the shops of the town as we were looking for specialized items. A wonderful breakfast, with many options. We had arranged a...

We booked to stay at the Ptarmigan through Canadian Affair. We were given a warm and friendly welcome on arrival and our standard room had comfy beds, a good sized en-suite and a good range of free TV channels. The housekeeping staff were great and the room was always spotless when we came back at the end of the day....

We were put up in The Ptarmigan by Canadian affair for our family Christmas holiday ski trip to Canada. The Hotel is in a great position close to the main town, shops and restaurants. There is also a safeway supermarket round the corner. The ski bus stops right outside. Bar and restaurant is really good for families, and reasonably priced,...

Everyone we dealt with was great. Called for availability on Christmas day and just showed up without a prior reservation. Great location if you want to walk around. Quiet and clean. Will go back again. Only small thing was that service in lounge was a little slow. She was very up-beat and funny so made up for the wait. An...
