Could use a bit more attention to cleanliness in the room- taps/ window blinds etc
The frozen lake! The view!!!
Not much! We found some parts of the room dusty
Staff was fabulous and the hotel is beautiful!
Rooms are a bit small but we didn’t spend a lot of time in there! Outdoors is beautiful!
Really great mountain setting and nice skating area on the lake.
You are a captive of the resort. It is a 45min. hike to the "town" which is not Banff. The shuttle to town only runs at night and there is a taxi service but I don't know how reliable it is. There is no outdoor hottub, only an indoor pool full of kids.
