“Excellent base with good views and brilliant service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

We stayed for two nights in August

We enjoyed our stay here vey much, although we spent very little time in the hotel.

You know as you arrive that this is a good hotel, the service is excellent from the off. Bags unloaded, keys taken and checked in with maximum efficiency together with politeness and smiles (can ask for more). Parking is very simple so I wouldn't bother with the additional cost of the valet parking to be honest.

Our room was good, but while I would give the hotel 5/5 for everything else the room was the only point where it was a little lacking. The bath was small and not hugely appealing and there was no separate shower (only one in the tub). Also there was no free water in the room. Both minor quibbles and as can be seen from the overall rating, not that important to the whole experience. The bed was comfy and the bedding very ok. The view form the window I sure was lovely most of the time but we had heavy fog so was obscured.

The free bus pass to get into Banff is a great touch and very useful. The hotel clearly has many amenities but we did not really use them. We did however eat at the hotel. The different restaurants are perfect and give great choice and flexibility. We had a relaxed dinner in the lounge. Our server was fantastic and the food was very good and reasonably prices. Again the view, when not obscured was amazing.

Check-out was easy and again the staff were brilliant. I would recommend this to anyone.

This hotel delivers on every level. If you are like our family, you want to know that your choice of a vacation hotel will be a special place. And typically you know whether you made the right choice on the roulette wheel of hotel selection within about seven seconds of arriving: is this a place you will be excited to return to at the end of a day of hiking/biking or not? This hotel is awesome. It is very new and well maintained, the rooms are modern and luxurious and have absolutely spectacular views, and their is a great pool/spa area that our son loved. Also, the hotel is walking distance to great hot springs and the mountain tram up the hill. A great way to enjoy Banff!!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view. Often views at hotels are overrated because you will be out all day and man...

Great hotel with spectacular views of the Rockies wherever you are. Located outside of Banff a free pass bus is provided. The rooms are large and well furnished. The beds are really comfortable. The food is ok but the service excellent. Good base for the area.

Enjoyed a wonderful three days at Rimrock in August. Beautifully appointed room with great views (when the cloud lifted). All Staff we encountered were friendly and helpful from the valet when we first arrived, the concierge who gave excellent suggestions for touring and a special mention to Chas in the Larkspur Lounge. We used the free bus pass to explore Banff township one morning but spent most of our stay visiting the magnificent sights of the National Park and the Icefields Parkway. We would definitely stay here when returning to this area

Room Tip: Valley view rooms are wonderful

We spent 3 nights here at the start of our Canadian adventure and it was a really good experience - very smart public areas, a lovely swimming pool and comfortable rooms. The views and location were fabulous - we made good use of the complimentary shuttle service into Banff. The only criticism is that the Wifi was not very good - but this is just a small issue in the scheme of things. I would heartily recommend this hotel to anyone.

Beautiful location with excellent customer service. The resort is out of town but it only takes a few minutes to get into town and the hotel offers shuttle. It is close to some of the Banff attractions such as the hot springs and gondola. Overall best stay on our vacation so far.

We stayed for only one night as we traveled from BC to Calgary, but what a lovely night it was. Our room, while we didn't have the amazing view the other reviewers report, was large and well appointed. The in-room coffee was actually palatable. The bathroom had a lovely jetted soaker tub. I wish I'd been able to stay longer and explore more that the hotel had to offer!
