The multiple buildings at this hotel make it feel more like cabins than a hotel. Great mountain, wood architecture. Large outdoor hot tub, nice bathrooms in the suites. 15 minute walk from restaurants downtown Banff if you are quick. Beautiful slate bathroom floors. Heated floors in the larger suites.

Great place to stay in Banff for a cottage experience. The rooms do utilize a wood burning fireplace so if you are bothered by the smell ask to get a room without when booking. The rooms are especially good for couples that want to have a romantic experience, balconies and seating on lower levels make for good coffee talk.

Beautiful top floor room with fireplace and deck backing onto the forest. Vaulted ceilings and spectacular bathroom. That's the good. The not so good...yes, the walls are thin but we went during an obvious downtime after Easter and the place was dead. We lucked out. We could hear people checking out or cleaning the room next door as clear as...

I took my husband out his birthday. Check in was super easy and pleasant. Our room was gorgeous. I love the river stone fireplace. Service by everyone we encountered was top notch. I would definitely stay here again in a heart beat. Even called to make sure everything was great an hour after we checked in.

The main reason for the trip was a one day meeting. But I stayed an extra day, and enjoyed the amenities. The meeting facilities were perfect, with a beautiful view. The Buffalo Mountain Lodge is so quiet! Walked out of my room a few time, greeted by friendly Deer, just passing through! I used a few of the services available...

Attended a wedding and reception at this Lodge. A great place for a wedding or just a get away. Wonderful staff made our time there very enjoyable. Restaurant fare was very good with something for everyone. Excellent location within walking distance to Banff. The rooms were a pleasing mix of mildly rustic with full amenities. The only minor criticism is...

Excellent stay again at Buffalo mountain lodge - love the real wood burning fireplaces and the breakfast was amazing. Stayed with a 4 month old who loved to watch the fire and was so handy to go for a walk on the trails beside the lodge

Absolutely amazing, the service was top notch and the food was delicious. The real wood burning fireplace was perfect for the spring weather and was always stocked. There were a few small amenities that weren't available (kettle and extra blankets), but I would highly recommend going. Well worth it!

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
