              The hotel was much nicer than I expected. The interior was beautiful and our room was very clean and spacious. And I got a great price from Booked.net so I will definately stay there again.

            • Older travelers

              Good location with clean room and pleasant staff.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              The staff were very accommodating and the rooms were clean and comfy

              Parking was tight and the meals were very expensive. $12 for breakfast and $14 for a burger was a bit over the top.....also a lengthy wait before it was served.

            • Family with children
              6.6

              The staff.

              The hearing and air con system. The heating was very noisy and the thermostat had to long between the start and cut off so the temperature was changing very much. Cold air was dragging from the AC unit.

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              I really liked our room and it was a great price. I also liked that it was close to town.

              I didn't enjoy the drunk people running around the hotel floors and slapping our bedroom door at 3 am.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              Good location, clean rooms, no complaints, everything was fine and perfect for a stay to visit the surrounding area. I would say there anytime again

              No applicable

            • Family with children

              hide bed is very uncomfortable. no light on sidetable

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              The location and excellent views from the hotel.

              The bed linen top sheet was not the correct size or had shrunk. It was too small for the queen size bed. The sheet would not tuck in at the sides. If the sheet was pulled up high enough for a proper turn over the blankets at the top, it would not tuck in the bottom. It was therefore unhygienic as your skin would often come into contact with the blanket, which would not have been changed between guests.! This was mentioned to the staff but it seemed that this was the standard sheet used.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Our first night in Canada, my husband, mother (85) and my son and daughter in law from Cranbrook and we shared a lovely family room. It was clean, comfortable and warm. Friendly and helpful staff. We used the restauran adjoining the hotel and had a lovely and resonable priced mea. Good experience.

            • Single
              7.4

              There's an elevator for my elderly mother. The bed was very comfy. Spacious and clean. The restataunt is excellent and the staff are very helpful and accomodating.

              It was extremely noisy in the hallways and quite a few very Kate parties that were very loud way into the morning. Parking is a challenge

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. The hotel is within walking distance to downtown. The staff are friendly and courteous and the room we rented was clean with a view of the mountains.

              The facility was dated and needs upgrading. On the second morning of our weekend, there was no hot water when taking a shower so it was not a pleasant way to start the day. The underground parking was limited.

            • Family with children
              7.0

              The location .... on Banff av but still a little away from the heart of the town . Also nice room.

              The room heating didnt work too well ,,,but the pleasant staff made upi by giving us a portable room heater .

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              The room was very clean and the staff were awesome with us. We only spent one night but it was very quiet and relaxing.

              I didn't like that the hottub felt like it was in the lobby, that's why we didn't go down to use it.

            • Family with children
              7.0

              Room was nicely layed out for 4 adults

              The second bed requires replacing very uncomfortable

              Everything was amazing about this hotel. I would not hesitate to book with this hotel again.
