Great location but cleanliness an issue

Great location, excellent amenities (including hot tub) but when we checked in the sheets had dried blood on them. Unacceptable even if the sheets were washed.

Over priced

Room is big but pretty old and a bit smelly. No a/c need to turn the fan and windows on 24/7 and even so still smell. Parking/lobby/room is not easy to navigate and signages are not too too clear, but once you know the floor plan and this becomes less of a problem. Internet service is just a joke! I tried in-room, lobby, restaurant, and .... extemely lousy. Breakfaxt is included and is good. Overall for ~$200 a night I expect something better. Pretty disappointed and my wife is upset for the overall quality this place has to offer.

Good Location!

We stayed 2 nights at the hotel, it is very conveniently located in Banff. They were, however, late to give us the room by 1 hour. The room was clean, but noisy. You can hear everybody talking in the hallway. So the late party goers coming back could wake you up!

not so good is my view.

The location was great , the breakfast was good, but the staff was average, they were to busy to take time to go through the hotel with us, for example the pool area theexercise are,etc,booking a room so long in advance should be moderate to great, i had to pay extra to get a room that was better, we were offered a split room, not a good plan, my husband did not care for that arrangem,ent so went and upgrade, that is my issue, will not stay there again. molly

Great Staff & Breakfast

We were scheduled to stay at the Rundle Manor. (Do not, I repeat Do Not stay there.) But the staff at Ptarmigan took us in and treated us very well; Sophie and Hugo were great. The breakfast was great and free. Only complaint was the AC/Heating Unit. Made a lot of strange noises.

Banff main road

Great location! But you need not to stay in the room and get out!!! Enjoy the walk around the hotel to browse and if you can get to the Gondola for a great view at the top!
