This was our 5th year running in Melissa's and the first time we have stayed at the Ptarmigan Inn! It was a wonderful experience and will definitely book again next time we are in Banff. The staff was very helpful and the complimentary breakfast included was wonderful!! The rooms were clean and the hot tub and sitting area was well...

We stayed for four nights and enjoyed the hotel immensely. There is plenty of choice for accommodation in Banff but this ticked all the boxes for us. The room was of a reasonable size and we had asked for one at the back of the hotel away from the noise of the busy street. The bed was very comfortable too....

We had a clean, comfortable room. Staff were friendly. Breakfast is served in a pleasant area near the lobby. Buffet items are available, and cooked-to-order omelets were just right. I enjoyed the whirlpool.

We stayed overnight on September 20th and had a great stay overall. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a room on the third floor, which was more than adequate. Check-in and check-out was smooth; underground parking was available. Breakfast with the omelette station was great. There was an assortment of cold and hot foods available. I enjoyed a...

We arrived in Banff a day earlier than what we had booked on a beautiful weekend in September. Unfortunately with a busy weekend there weren't any availabilities however the staff were more than happy to ring the local hostel to arrange accommodation. When we did book I asked for a new room (wasn't happy with a view of the parking...

There are two hotels close by, one owned by the same chain, the other is the Torquin. Choose either of those. There is an air of chaos about the Ptarmigan, breakfast is mayhem. Lines over thirty feet at eight in the morning. The food is very average, the rooms the same. I would not stay there again.

Good hotel, sure they have small rooms but who stays in their room in Banff. The walls are thin and you can hear the pipe rattling but once everyone settles down it's a quiet place. The free breakfast is great, (hot and cold rations complete with an egg and omlette station). The location couldn't be better as it's only a...

Just an average hotel. Room was a good size, We had dirty tissues on the floor beside the nightstand. GROSS! Breakfast was included, was fine. Waitress seemed to be understaffed, They offered coffee/tea, but got side tracked and we had to ask. Great location, able to walk to shops.

This hotel was an excellent value for the price paid. Location was right on the main strip, just a block or two from where all the shops/restaurants started. Property and decorations are a little dated, but the rooms were just what was needed - beds and a good shower. The room had a small balcony, which was nice. My only...
