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

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 Location

The location and indoor parking made this hotel a good experience for us. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only negative was the noise from outside - we did have our window/door open since it was a bit warm in the room. It was a holiday weekend so the noise was not unexpected, the train that rumbles thru town it also really noisy but that cannot be helped. The hotel is not airconditioned, but a small fan was provided.

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.
