Great place to stay in lovely location

Enjoyed our stay at Bow View Lodge. Beautiful setting overlooking the Bow River, and within walking distance of the picturesque town of Banff. Only drawbacks were limited parking and no breakfast included, but definitely a great place to stay.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Hotel is right in town with close walk to everything, but feels like a private location with proximity to the Bow River.

Great location

Bow View Lodge is located right across the street from the Bow River and is a block from all of the main Banff attractions on Bear Street and Banff Avenue. The room was clean and comfortable.

Dated room, but super comfort

The room has dated furniture, but it's clean and beds are very comfortable. That's all we need after a tiring day of hiking. The sister hotel next door has nice Jacuzzi, seam room and pool that we can use. The location is convenient to restaurants.

Just another basic motel

Close to town center, perfect if you're always outside enjoying the area and hardly in the room.

There really is a Bow River view.

This is a lovely lodge with a great view. It is in a very relaxing, quiet location, yet it convenient to downtown Banff. The room was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed my stay and highly recommend this lodge to others,
