Recent guest reviews

I booked through Orbitz and did not see the one line that stated my room would be located in a separate building. Regardless, I would have still booked the room because the pictures provided online were gorgeous and the idea of being away from everyone sounds like it’d be a little quieter anyway. This is NOT the case. The building separate from the main building the hotel calls the “annex” building. This building, as I have told the hotel, is basically a step down from any motel 6. My wife and I checked in around 4, but quickly went hiking and had a late dinner. We returned to the room around midnight and that’s when we really realized how poor of conditions the Annex building is. The carpet was all stained, the doorknob to the balcony was broken off, the lock on the bathroom didn’t work, the sink was cracked, no sheets were on the mattress and the comforter was covered in dog hair (we didn’t bring a dog), the smell was an unbearable musty smell, the list goes on. So here is the REAL problem with this hotel, I don’t expect a perfect hotel room, but I quickly read through the reviews to this place after the fact (that is my fault) and their are dozens of poor reviews ALL in regard to the Annex building. Furthermore, no picture on their website or any hotel site shows pictures of how poor the conditions are in that building. In fact, no pictures are even of any part of this building. It is a blatant misrepresentation of the product they are providing for their customers.

Bathroom shower leaked under the glass door so had to wipe up the floor. Bottom bed sheet had a hole, pillow case 3. One bar on veranda was missing, a small child could fall through. I did complain when checking out, and said they were sorry and refund 25%. Felt that was fair.

They did not clean the room once during our week stay. You could not turn around in the shower it was so small and narrow. Very overpriced. Excellent restaurant but I understood it was not part of the hotel.

Overall the stay was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The suite was spacious, clean and updated. The kitchen had basic amenities for cooking. If your major point if interest is in and around Canmore the location is very convenient. If going back and forth between Banff or farther then a car would be recommended.

All very nice. Restaurant excellent! However, they did charge my credit card for incidentals which I had none. Had to go through my bank to get dispute resolved and taken off my card.

I booked this hotel so our family could be together to celebrate a member's birthday. The suites are fantastic and worth staying in. Bit of a labyrinth getting to our rooms as this hotel as a lot of hallways. Pool set is nice except cold water pools are COLD. Child's pool was colder than expected but our toddler had fun. Their breakfast was not good--powdered eggs were used to make the scrambled eggs in their restaurant--yuck! But the bacon and sausages were good! Last note: extremely friendly staff make you feel very welcome. Definitely a place to return to.

When booking online I was told that check in was at 4pm but my fiancé and I tried our luck at noon. We were greeted with smiles (and lovely accents). When permitted to check in early, our room was upgraded from the basic to a suite, complimentary! I have never seen such a gorgeous room and view. We decided to cancel our plans for the day and just enjoy the room with the warmth of our heated fireplace and cozy interior design. We did leave a little after to grab some steaks to throw on the BBQ that came with the room! I would recommend this hotel to everyone and anyone, great for couples, friends and families. Also we adored the indoor/outdoor jacuzzi!! We will be coming back! But this time more than one night!

I'll talk first about the service, my room's air condition was not working I called the reception to find out a soltiuon and there response was not fast, the maintance came when they came and check the problem and they told me we can not fix the problem and there is no other room is available that you can stay in. They charged me more than the agreement. It is location close to the main highway ;therefore , you can hear all the noise that comes from the cars. There fitness center is very small ; smaller than an average hotel room and it does not have the necessary working out machines

All was well until checkout. A $20 "resort fee" was added to our bill, not listed on their web site. Overall with fees and taxes it changed a quoted price of $290 to $355. The pool was nice and location near Banff was a plus.

stayed only one night and had a very good sleep! wish i would have had more time to explore the resort.

Your expectations and the information provided by our front desk agents seemed to be missing. We are a very environmentally friendly hotel and ask our guests to contact our front desk or housekeeping if they would like a complete room cleaning every day. Otherwise it is done every 4th day unless a guest requests otherwise.
