While on a big road trip, my boyfriend and I decided to stay somewhere nice for a night. After seeing the pictures online I thought this place looked wonderful.
The room comes with your own fireplace which you obviously wouldn't use in the summer. There is no air conditioning and the bathroom was small. We had a tiny first floor patio that faced the road. The room was really cozy and cute but not what I thought we were getting. Our room came with a portable fan which we ran all night since it was so hot. You have to drive to get into downtown Banff but that's no big deal, it was nice to be a little out of town. I feel like you could get a different hotel of the same quality for a better price.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a peaceful retreat on Tunnel Mountain in Banff, AB. The lodge is surrounded by 9 acres of towering fir, pine, and spruce trees, yet just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the shopping, nightlife and restaurants that are on offer in downtown Banff. A favourite visitor pastime is to observe the deer and elk who frequently nibble on the lawn, right outside the lodge's windows. The lodge has 108 guest rooms, an outdoor hot tub, and several options for dining, making it the ideal location for a weekend getaway, wedding, or corporate retreat. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts' family of companies. Rooms at the lodge have fieldstone wood-burning fireplaces, cozy duvets, LCD televisions and Blu-ray players. Many feature patios or balconies. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect the mountain lifestyle in Banff-the accommodation is anything but 'cookie cutter.' The outdoor stainless steel hot tub is best enjoyed after an invigorating hike, bike or ski on one of the nearby trails-or perhaps to aid digestion after a sumptuous meal in the lodge's highly acclaimed restaurant, Sleeping Buffalo. ... more less
