It is a great place to stay. Very clean and organized. All the staff were great with the exception of an Australian front desk staff member. She was very rude and tried to put us in an economy room when we paid for a luxury suite. She was also very rude at checkout. We are a young biker couple and...

My husband & I booked a premier room and it had a spectacular view from the balcony; I was sad it wasn't warmer so we could sit outside & enjoy it. We did, however, enjoy the fireplace immensely. We had a crackling fire and sat in the two cozy chairs and talked; such a lovely break! The spacious bathroom and...

The property is beautiful. Parking lot was tough to find parking spots close to unit in the evening after coming home. Rooms are very well thought out - the fireplace is a nice touch. Staff was professional and friendly. Food and drinks were great as well.

Our check in was pleasant and professional Because we have stayed in emerald lake I knew that our room would be rustic and older For $229 per night I would expect the room to be clean. On arrival blood and secretions on the wall beside the bed.

A great log-cabin like experience with convenient access to downtown Banff. Well maintained facilities, hard-working team members and an in-room fireplace made this stay memorable and enjoyable for the entire week.

I used to stay at the Buffalo Mountain Lodge every June for the Banff Television festival - this stay was enroute to my son's wedding and I found the lodge as beautiful and welcoming as always. The Premium rooms are spectacular; the food and wine wonderful. Only disappointment is poor access for older people. Still it was great to sip...

Overall, a very nice quaint setting with beautiful scenery. Cozy lounge and cute cabins. I love the fireplace in the room stocked with new wood wrapped in paper and kindling everyday to remove the chill on a cold Canadian winter day. I would come back again.

I was very pleased - the lodge is cozy and warm, the rooms have fireplaces in them, and the staff cleans and prepares a new fire for you each night. I highly recommend it, and I'll be coming back soon!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a peaceful retreat on Tunnel Mountain in Banff, AB. The lodge is surrounded by 9 acres of towering fir, pine, and spruce trees, yet just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the shopping, nightlife and restaurants that are on offer in downtown Banff. A favourite visitor pastime is to observe the deer and elk who frequently nibble on the lawn, right outside the lodge's windows. The lodge has 108 guest rooms, an outdoor hot tub, and several options for dining, making it the ideal location for a weekend getaway, wedding, or corporate retreat. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts' family of companies. Rooms at the lodge have fieldstone wood-burning fireplaces, cozy duvets, LCD televisions and Blu-ray players. Many feature patios or balconies. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect the mountain lifestyle in Banff-the accommodation is anything but 'cookie cutter.' The outdoor stainless steel hot tub is best enjoyed after an invigorating hike, bike or ski on one of the nearby trails-or perhaps to aid digestion after a sumptuous meal in the lodge's highly acclaimed restaurant, Sleeping Buffalo. ... more   less
