Seriously, you can't book one of the cheapest private rooms in Banff, with a kitchenette no less, and expect luxury!
My suite had brand new kitchen, bathroom, paint and bedding (as far as I can tell). The bed and linen is the same you get in the Ptarmigan Inn... very comfortable.
The building... the hallways looked abused, the doors to the rooms and inside the rooms looked original and in need of replacing. The walls are fairly thin, you can hear a lot of movement and conversation from the fellow guests.
Unfortunately as well, there were two rooms of rowdy idiots having a party weekend on the floor below us. A call to the front desk quieted things down, but getting any sleep before 11 (the start of quiet time) was impossible.
I liked the convenient location, and the price, but will likely spend some extra money next time in Banff to stay at the Hidden Ridge Chalets, which are owned by the same company I believe. Much more quiet!
If you are young, budget conscious, and/or don't mind a bit of noise... Rundle Manor is perfectly fine.
I stayed there for Banff Bike Fest and there seemed to be quite a few other cyclists staying there as well. Put all the cyclists in one building next time and the partiers in the other!

Thank you so much for your review. You are correct we have just finished replacing all the flooring and redoing the bathrooms and kitchens, currently we are in the process of painting or replacing all the doors. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed these improvements.

Although we do our best to try and allocate guest to the appropriate areas, it is difficult for us to predetermine those here to party and those that are here to rest or better yet complete in our Bikefest, prior to check in and even then it is challenging. However we will take this into consideration and do our best improve these situations. Again thank you for your review, and we hope to see you again soon, whether at our sister Hidden Ridge property or any of our lovely hotels
