Great location to relax, have dinner and enjoy a crackling fire after cycling the 1A Highway! We were able to park our vehicles in the morning, do the cycling loop and then come back to enjoy our quaint cabin in the Rockies.

Good Hotel

Reviewed By _andy_g_packwood

A very good quiet and comfortable stay. Breakfast was included which was a good choice of buffet items. The outside hot tub/fire pit area is very good for a late relax. The hotel is a good walk into the main town area, but is very handy for local buses to town, the Gondola and Miniwanka lake.

Staff are well trained - a credit to this hotel

Reviewed By alisonh174

Stayed for two nights while in Banff. Welcoming hotel with very friendly efficient polite staff. We could not fault our stay here. We used room service facility for breakfast, the laundry service and the hotel lobby /bar area for a meal one night and all experiences were first class service. The hotel was very clean and situated across from the hot springs and next door to the gondolas. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Wilderness Walk-Fairmont

We did the Wilderness Walk with Andrew, and he was absolutely fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, patient with our questions, and great with the kids. We were hesitant to do a hotel activity when there are so many other great things to do here, but this rates among the highest of the trip because of him.
