I was close to the town centre.
On our arrival staff were friendly and helpful however the other staff didn't really go out of their way to say good morning etc or engage in conversation and they are "front of house" staff.
That we could use the pool at the sister hotel. It was very very clean.
Decor needs some upgrades but great value for the price.
The river view The river walkway
The property is older, but is well kept with polite and helpful staff.
The gym is next door at the sister property and isn't much of a gym.
The location is great, near the downtown, but in a quiet place by the Bow river. The room is very clean and well maintained. The staff is helpful and polite.
On a cold day the heating system could not get to the temperature we wanted...
River view and access to downtown Banff was a benefit to this accommodation. Will chose this again.
Walking distance from all the restaurants and pubs and right beside the Bow River. It made for a great getaway.
Although the riverside room was lovely, it'd probably be nicer in the summer. Simple and clean room. Basic toiletries of one shampoo, lotion and a bar of soap. We always bring ours so we didn't mind. I suppose if there were four adults and needing more it wouldn't be a problem to ask the front desk. It needs a bit of a contemporary lift but if you don't mind the maroon carpet, colorful wallpaper and gold lampshades then it's good! Location was great-walking distance to main street. Friendly gentleman at the front desk. Good value for the money.
Our double beds were both very firm. My husband joked that somebody forgot the box spring goes under the mattress! However, both our parents have stayed here on different occasions and had a good night's rest so maybe it was just our beds. Our kids slept fine though...and even with the train passing by at night. Balcony was nice but no privacy. My son could walk the whole length of the third floor balcony as the partition was only a bar. Wifi isn't free but it's probably contributing to the price of the room. Otherwise, it was a good stay. I'd recommend it to others and would stay here again!
River view was really nice Good value for the rate.
Loved that everything was within walking distance. Staff friendly and helpful. Our room was clean & comfortable and big enough for the 3 of us to enjoy. Will be back for sure!
When we went the weather was chilly but we will be back in the summer so can enjoy those Bow River views.
Location, balcony overlooking the river was beautiful!
Rooms are small and could use a little renovation but overall good!
The best part of the stay is the coupon and use of ammenities next door at the bow lodge, plus view is good facing the bow river
It is a rather run down hotel for the money you pay ...terrible pillows too!
The room was very clean, a bit dated decor but very comfortable bed. Walking distance to town centre.
the room was very clean and the location is very convenient.
the room we booked was a river view room, but the actual one we got is just a regular room with no view.
no free wifi
We like price and place.
the use of a light bar with 4 plugins that needed delicate manipulations to keep everything working
i liked that the room had a river view for a fresh start of a fine day.
restaurants weren't exactly 'near'. walkable distance though.
Close proximity to downtown, beautiful view on river side, staff very friendly and helpful, access to pool and restaurant is good but it's in another building
No room service, odd bed arrangement (we thought we had a kind or queen, turned out to be a full size with another single size in the corner), thin walls could hear other guests very easily
The service was great, location was awesom and I had the best trip to banff this time around. This hotel is one of my favourites for sure!
I didn't like that the wifi wasn't free.
Location and price!
Rooms were small and decor outdated. No continental breakfast.
Staff were excellent.
Furnishings, televison and rooms are a bit dated, need to make more modern. Elevator wasn't working off and on.
Good location for walking to downtown!
Needed more pop machines
The location was perfect, our view was spectacular! We enjoyed being able to use the Banff lodge facilities, the eucalyptus steam room was awesome! I had read reviews saying the rooms needed an update and while they are a little outdated it didn't bother us, we didn't go to Banff to hang out in our room. The bedding was new and comfortable and that's all that really mattered to us. We will definetly stay again, I will be booking for christmas again next year immediately and requesting our same room :)
Close to Bow river and shops. Friendly staff.
Wi-fi needs upgrading. Often dropped out very slow.
