Close to town and very close to the river which is great. Lovely views of bow river from our room. Perfect place to stay. The rooms were clean and staff are great, they helped us book troys and recommenced restaurants in town. Quiet at night.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Bow View Lodge. The major plus about this hotel is its proximity to everything and free parking. It is about 100m away from the banks of the Bow River which is such a gorgeous walk at any time of day. Especially at sunset. Also, it is within a few minutes walk to everywhere...

I took a trip to Banff with two friends only staying one night at Bow View Lodge. Next time we will spend more time there as It is so convenient to the main town and only a short drive away from all the sightseeing spots. The Walk along the Bow river just across from the Lodge is splendid, what views,...

The hotel is perfectly situated alongside the river, sitting out on our patio was heaven. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful.Of particular note was the young lady at the reception desk who made use feel so welcome. My companion was a lady from Britain and she LOVED everything about our stay at Bow...

Good clean room. Located great for walking around. Our room with wonderfull view to the Bow river. Our room had a balcony with two chairs but it was too cold to seat outside. So, it is a good place to stay.

Very well places and quiet. Good proximity to transport and walkways, great view of Bow River and the Rockies. Accessible to all services in the area and walking distance to all of these. Enjoyed our stay very much.

We stayed two nights on a tour. Rooms are a good size. In comparison with other hotels, picnic cups and glasses are not good enough. One coffee bag and 2 flavoured tea bags do not improve things. Staff were approachable.

Was good except Internet connection which was paid but very slow. We didn't use restaurant. Pool, hot tub, gym,etc was tied with another hotel, I guess of the same group.Overall experience was good. Thanks.

We love balconies in hotel rooms! We opened the sliders and let in the breezes. This is not a posh resort for such a posh town, but the location is fantastic and within walking distance to the shops and restaurants and a walk along the river. It was nice to have a "square" room instead of a long rectangle, so...

Not a fancy place, but had all the basics at a more modest price! Parking is included so very important. Front desk staff & housekeepers couldn't have been more helpful! Rooms overlooking River are nicer, but others are just fine. Easy walk to town for restaurants
