    Decent place. Small rooms, outdated furniture and extremely hard mattress. Friendly staff, excellent location close to the river and Banff avenue. Balcony is not private there is only a metal bar separating from each room.

    Accommodated well for our short notice trip. View of mountain and river breath taking. Close to walking of Banff. Mattress and pillows weren't too comfy but overall was adequate. Staff were all friendly.

    Have been coming here for over 30 years, when it was still privately owned by a couple. Place could use a facelift. Entrance needs upgrading, carpet needs vacuuming. Dried, dead flowers not attractive. Perhaps some natural boughs with simple bow could add to appeal.

    The Bow View Lodge is a perfect place to stay for the location. We could walk everywhere. The staff were very good & friendly. The only complaint we have is that the king bed was to hard, it felt like we were sleeping on plywood.
