“Nice stay, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

We stayed at the hotel April 2 and enjoyed our stay. The location is wonderful. It is in the middle of the shops on Banff Ave, but also the tour busses for skiing and other events is located behind hotel. Rooms were nice. Bathroom could use some upgrades / lighting/ maintenance but was a clean, spacious room. Good front staff at check in and departure. Nice overall stay.

Great place to stay in Banff. A little pricey but worth it. It is in the centre of town close to everything and is clean and very comfortable. Tea and coffee in the room.....but no fridge That would be great ! I would defiantly stay there again. Beds were very comfortable too.

Room Tip: We chose a room at the back incase there was a lot of street noise. I don't think there would ha...

We arrived March 17th only to find our reservation cancelled. Front desk informed us that our reservation was cancelled, and they were full, but, put us in a suite for same rate! It was beautiful! Couldn't ask for better service or better room! Absolutely wonderful! Would definately recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Banff! It's on the same street as the candy store (yum), we went across the street to The Keg for dinner, which was very good, you can park and walk to your heart's content throughout town. Perfect place to stay!

Room Tip: Great room, great value, good service. Even though over a pub, very, very quiet! Room faced front...

Thank-you for taking the time to send us your comments regarding your last visit at the Mount-Royal hotel.

I’m not sure what happened with your reservation but I was happy to read that my front-desk staff took very good care of you. We do spend quite a bit of time training our staff to better serve our guests. I’m glad to see that you went to the candy store, it is an institution in Banff. Next time you visit us, make sure to try Tony Romas located inside the hotel and their famous ribs.

Once again, thank-you for your feedback, we do take them to heart.

This is an older hotel with character. We stayed in a standard room which was small but comfortable. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of Banff walking distance to everything with an easy in easy out convenient parking lot. Area bus stop is right across the street for comfortable reliable transportation in the metro area if needed. Pub in the basement has good entertainment and is a friendly atmosphere.. Staff was very helpful.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

This hotel is in a great location. We stayed in the older part of the hotel in March (unusually warm March). It is still nice, clean and a good basic room that included a bar fridge, coffee maker and a tea kettle. The reason we have rated this a 4 and not a 5 is because the windows do NOT open in the old part. The room thermostat is set at 72F. I like it warm but this was too warm for us, so we turned it down substantially. After being so warm the first night and not being able to sleep well, we enquired at the front desk about the heat. We were told that the cooling system was not on in the winter (make sense) but the only way to cool our room off was to turn the heating system off. We did so on our second and final night to no relief. Had we been able to stay in the new part and open a window, it would have been great.

Room Tip: Stay in the new area of the hotel that has windows that open.

I was happy to read that overall, you had a good experience while you were at the hotel. We are an older historic hotel, some of our rooms do not have windows that open you are correct but most of our rooms do. We are currently in the process of renovating all of our room with new furniture’s, accessories, etc… I do agree with you that our location is unbeatable, seconds away from all that Banff has to offer.

Once again, Thank-you for your feedback and we hope to see you again.
