                  6.6

                  location was beautiful, loved the rustic nature and the fireplace

                  aside from the bed being made and the toiletries being replaced the room seemed as if it hadn't been cleaned. receipt that had inadvertently fallen onto the floor was still there, towel on the chair etc. Parking was very difficult when we arrived, had to part well away from our room although we had numerous bags. Restaurant guests use lodge guest parking making things quite inconvenient for tired travellers at 10:00 at night..

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Quiet

                  Should explain about under floor heating system and how it works

                • Couple
                  5.4

                  I liked the fire place and the bed was super comfortable!!!

                  It s funny how they have the old houses on one side and the better ones on the other.Pictures on internet are diffrent from how it actually looks.The old side of Buffalo Lodge is not worth the money -it looks like 2 star motel... When I got there I had to excahnge the rooms and pay more money for the newer room that was only 40$ more than the old one.I have no idea why it says on internet that it s 4 stars hotel .They don t even have swimming pool.... I wouldn t recommend going to their steamer beside jacuzzi because it stinks like mold!!!!The washrooms beside jacuzzi are not clean and are stinky!!! Do not plan taking any food with you there cuz they don t even have a fridge inside.As I said it s not worth the money.

                • Family with children
                  9.2

                  Great staff and very comfortable room.

                  If anything the lighting in the bathroom and the small tv

                • Couple
                  8.2

                  The fireplace was a great treat as well as the clawfoot tub.

                  Older rooms - we had to ask for an upgrade to the newer area as we were very disappointed with the older area. Didn't like there was only one restaurant and it was very upscale. Not close to town to had to drive to town for all meals but one slurge.

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  Location and appearance of the room.

                  Bed was rock hard and could hear everything from neighboring suites and outside

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  Lobby and room both had great atmosphere. Fireplace in room.

                  A little far of a walk to down town in freezing conditions.

                • Family with children
                  8.0

                  The location and scenery were beautiful. The brunch was a treat.

                  We didn't appreciate our alarm clock turning on unexpectedly at 5:30 am. on the second night of our stay.

                • Couple
                  9.6

                  Room was clean, very nice and comfortable, and saw several mule deer in the parking lot.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Quiet, nice getaway location, romantic

                • Older travelers
                  6.6

                  Rusric style of the accommodation; fireplaces in the rooms

                  We have stayed before and found that the mattress on the bed had deteriorated considerably. The mattress was very uncomfortable - old and saggy, so we did not sleep well. Also, the hot tub was not working. We appreciated new towels.

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  The staff were super friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.

                  The breakfast options ran out and where limited.

                • Family with children
                  7.4

                  If you've got the right side of the lodge you'll have a very nice view which we've experienced & the location it's quite close to the centre of the city (Banff) with a lot of shops & restaurants.

                  None,only they didn't foreseen the two double beds as our booking+They've given us one king bedroom for the same price which probably cost more because of bigger space/more luxurious+ But it might go wrong,if they don't have other option available and luckily we have only 1 child to sleep together in the king bedsize,but how abt family with 2 children ?

                  The room was cozy and the services were excellent. The restaurant was fine dining quality and priced as such; a meal for 2 with drinks and wine will cost will start at $150. The hot tub and steam room are great, and the staff were always friendly. Down town is very close 5 minute drive, and the hotel is well serviced by the Roam bus service.

                  Don't expect a view of anything from the rooms.

                  The peace and quiet. The location, beauty, sound of the trees blowing

                  No microwave or mini fridge.
