A pleasant stay ??

DAROHATH (Cairns, Australia) on May 17, 2024

We had 4 nights at the lodge whilst exploring Banff. The room was cosy, with a fireplace in the living area and a comfortable king bed. During our stay I found the staff to be very friendly. A couple of things to be aware of. Whilst it’s not far from Banff town centre, you are up the hill. We had a car, and it’s only a short 5 minute drive. Parking in Banff in March was ok, but I understand it’s incredibly tight in the peak months. The ATM downstairs didn’t work properly and actually held my card for some time until we contacted the operator. I’d avoid using as I believe it was not the first time. Overall, a great stay

Lovely stay - although definitely pay for the bus back from town as it is a 20 minute walk up hill. Excellent breakfasts in the restaurants and drinks in an evening.

Lovely stay

kingfan (Bourne, Lincolnshire) on May 16, 2024

Our wishes were granted and we arrived in Banff with a covering of snow ! We were met by very friendly staff at reception who gave us a map and pointed out where everything was including our room. We were grateful that ours was on the ground floor to save lugging cases up the stairs. The room probably wasn’t the cleanest (smeary bathroom mirror and dust on the coffee machine) but it was spacious and the slightly smoky aroma from the open fire felt very homely. The bed was comfortable and although I didn’t mind the pillows, my other half said they were too soft. We ate at the restaurant both evenings, staff were great and the food was fantastic. Would definitely return if we found ourselves back in the area.

A wonderful vacation in the mountains. Warm atmosphere, good service. And another nice bonus is a cool fireplace in the room.

A relaxing and exciting get away

Travelling in May can by interesting due to weather conditions but overall we had 20+ degree weather for 5/6 days of our trip. The views from the hotel are outstanding and worth the few minute drive up the mountain. Would recommend to anyone staying in and around the Banff area.
