Iconic stay in Banff
Buffalo Mountain Lodge was one of the best places we have ever stayed in. The room was very comfortable, despite it being near zero degrees outside at night. Service was top notch. Despite not having a kitchen, the staff were quick to respond, and helped to provide us with a mini fridge and kettle. We will definitely be back again if we were to visit Banff.

Good 6.0
The beds were comfortable
It was pretty tight quarters for a family of four. We definitely ended up with one of the smaller rooms on site. Pool was closed up until we arrived due to covid.

Brrrr but we still love the hotel
It’s our favourite hotel but unfortunately with covid the hotel has been slow so they have not been keeping the heat up... we arrived when it was minus 40 to a very cold room got moved to a cold room at least the floor were warm and never completely warmed up during our stay. Only way it would stay warm is to have a fire which unfortunately we didn’t keep the fire going all night and woke up to a brisk room every morning

Our stay
Rooms are big enough but everything was just a bit tired. Staff were friendly and efficient. Food brought to the room from the restaurant and it was amazing. The parking was limited but we managed.

I wish I would’ve asked for a room on the top floor, the noise from people walking up the stairs and in the room above was very loud. The wood was wet and wouldn’t burn. The staff was very nice and I liked the pillows.

Nice romantic stay
The place is beautiful and rustic and the wood burning fireplace was the biggest hit. It's too bad the hot tub wasn't open because of covid rules though.

Our happy place
Another wonderful weekend at Buffalo Mountain Lodge. I always appreciate the consistently positive feeling as I arrive and check into my room. The views are spectacular. The rooms are comfortable and inviting. And it takes just a few moments to feel relaxed ans settled.

Mountain Escape
Buffalo Mountain Lodge was such a wonderful place to stay. The crackling log fireplace was just lovely. We appreciated the room service (delicious) & didn't have to go anywhere. The bathroom was clean with L'Occitaine toiletries and heated floors. There was a huge free standing claw foot tub to soak in. We had a spectacular view of the mountains on the second floor (walk up), Would definitely return.
