Midway between Banff and Lake Louise, in the heart of Banff National Park, you'll find a breathtaking location and the perfect getaway resort - Castle Mountain Chalets. Beautifully designed and furnished individual chalets are where you will relax in this nature lover's paradise.
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.

All was good at the Lake Louise Inn. We had a 1 bedroom and it was perfect for our family of 4. The room was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The food in the restaurants was very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

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.

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.

This year round luxury resort is styled after a Scottish baronial castle and offers guests spectacular mountain and valley views, a championship golf course during the summer, unparalleled skiing in the winter, and an award-winning European-style spa, the Willow Steam Spa.
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.
