We have stayed at the Douglas Fir before and were able to see past the dated and dingy interiour for the charm and convenience offered by the wood burning fire place and kitchenette. The dinginess has given way to utter disrepair. The couch, which must be moved in order to access the murphy bed (?!), was on a slant due...

This go around the stay was much better. The condo we had was clean and comfortable. Dog friendly too! It was all about the kids this weekend so the pool and playroom were hits. It is awkward to get into the pool and playroom areas. I also found the change rooms too small/crowded. Woke up one morning to this beautiful...

Thought this would be a great place for a family stay, with the water slides and all..... We were so excited about the idea of having our own chalet nestled in the mountains for the weekend. We paid over $300/night. The bed was the original, I'm sure, from 1960 when the cabin was built. The box spring was so old,...

Our family had a great weekend at the Douglas Fir but the key reason was the pool area. We had rented a suite which was nice for our family of 6 although it felt like a step back to the 80's in finishes and decor. Also there is a lack of entries into the main building to access the pool...

We stayed here for a week and rented a beautiful studio. The morning view of Rundel Mountain was out of this world. The first day after our arrival it snowed. The mountain looked magical. The staff was extremely friendly, with heated garage parking, a lovely fire crackling when the moon just hung over the mountain it completely made our stay....

We waited too long in booking Banff accommodation (we really wanted Lake Louise but nothing there), and had little choice for our stay in September. For the price the Doug Fir was worth it. Good kitchen and facilities fine. A heating issue was resolved fairly well although it seemed to be an ongoing problem. We staying in the main building...

good place for younger children who appreciate the pool with slides and the play area. We stayed here several times over the years while the kids were younger and loved it, although outdated, worked well for us. We have not been to Banff for the last few years, and decided to come for a night, mainly for the pool/slides for...

We have been staying at the Lodge at Douglas Fir for at least 20 years now and we come here because we love the location with trails at the door step and the wood burning fireplace. When we checked in the two fellows at the front desk were fantastic. They were so eager to help and gave us one of...

We love the Douglas fir cabins. They are perfectly located In The middle of the mountains and Douglas fir trees as well as close enough to the town centre that you could walk or drive to pick up items. We usually reserve right on their web site so that we can pre order the breakfast or meal package. When we...

This is a great hotel in a great location! The large family suite was perfect for our girls weekend with 3 bedrooms, 6 beds, 4 bathrooms and open concept living area. The suite was very clean but could use some updating. Regardless the staff and amenities are wonderful. Booked again for next year which will be year #12 for us...
