Great location at Great Price

Loved the hotel's location and the free breakfast each morning. Within easy walking distance to all the shops. No charge for parking was a bonus. Only downside which is likely typical of most hotels in Banff was lack of air conditioning. This could be an issue for people who real like to keep the room ultra cool.

Banff Beauty

We loved our stay in Banff. We enjoyed The Ptarmigan Inn's location in town as it was close to all the shops. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was friendly. We saw lots of elk and mountain sheep just a short drive from town.

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.

Odd but enjoyable hotel

First off, the hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a perfect location...just a pleasant walk from downtown Banff. Lots of nearby restaurants and a Safeway is just a block away. The hotel is attractive from the outside, but oddly built in the interior. Narrow hallways and rooms that are satisfactory in size...although I think a bit overpriced. Still, I liked it and would stay here again depending on the availability of other choices. Wireless internet dependable.

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!
