One of the loveliest view room we ever had! Great view of Bow View River... If you want a great room and view, the beautiful king room with view is the best room in the lodge. We loved this place. I don't think you can find a better view in Banff. We loved all of Banff and would definitely go...

Pleasant stay here for the most part. The location is pretty good just along the Bow River on the outer edge of town making it very quiet at night time. Staff was friendly and helpful with check in even though we were a little early. The rooms are definitely dated and of average size (esp. the bathroom). Screen doors were...

This hotel is by no means fancy, but in a beautiful setting and good breakfast at sister hotel. We had a room facing the river and mountains, which was extremely relaxing. I do believe dogs are allowed, although we did not have ours with us. Cxxxxxxxxcxxxxx

Clean and basically ok, but needed updating. Couldn't have windows open as the fly nets had holes in or didn't cover all the window. We didn't use any of the facilities as we were only staying briefly and had a busy itinerary.

Our room overlooked parking lot. Balconies were separated by a single bar which would make it quite easy to go onto other balconies. Not the most secure set up. Room a bit dated but it was very clean. I have stayed in a room that overlooked the river and the path that the carriages and horses take. That was very...

The hotel is ideal for the town and the river. The room was spacious and clean but the decor and tv a little dated. The bonus was the balcony which allowed us to enjoy the fresh air and river view. From here we saw a mother and baby elk in the trees just opposite our room which was an unexpected...

Big clean room with a balcony that had a beautiful view of the river and mountains. This place was clean, nice, and a great price for Banff. I totally recommend it and would stay here again in a heart beat! Photos are the view from the room.

Went to Banff for a wedding and this place was awesome. Very clean and all the staff was so friendly. Had a great time and will stay there again. There was beautiful views from any room, it's wonderful to drink my morning coffee on a balcony with a mountain view!
