I enjoyed my stay. The room was large, comfortable and very clean. The scenery was spectacular and the snow in the morning made me feel like staying another night because of the sheer magical quality it brought to the area.

Manager was rude... Did not have the time of day for us. Said he was too busy with an empty counter.... Held up our departure while he stood around. Was not overly friendly. Very bad last impressions.

This is a great place to be a bit further from the craziness of Banff Ave. Lots of amenities from recreation centre (includign pool and climbing wall) and some good food options on site. Only a 15 minute stroll to the centre of town of Banff

We stay at the Banff Centre every year and love the totally different experience of staying a short walk or drive from the town centre. As an art and music campus, with food and wine close at hand, it is always inspirational, with great hikes out of the door.

The facility and programming at the Banff Centre are amazing. Truly wonderful. The location is a bit away from town, but quite peaceful. The hotel needs a refresh (old appliances, old bathroom with a running toilet, old pillows). Housekeeping was mediocre I'd say (my bed was not properly made ever with the fitted sheet on the bottom). Most of the... More

This is a fantastic facility for the arts. The Banff film and book festival is a great event with super people and the best setting on earth for inspiring artists. Breathtaking views and all these little cottages for artists to work in their craft. It was warmer than normal and made for excellent walking weather. They served delicious fruit water... More

Staff were friendly and room was very comfortable with a relaxing forest view. The walking trails around the centre are nice as are the pedestrian walking paths. MacLab restaurant has a simple menu with a good variety of choices. Currently a building is under construction, so a couple of pathways are obstructed.

I wish I'd had more time to enjoy everything. The conference centre is gorgeous with views of the mountains and the food was very good. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I've been three times and this time I stayed in Lloyd Hall, which is about to be renovated, so it's a little older than where I normally stay.... More

The Banff Centre presents so many great opportunities for a night out. We love the small, intimate venues where you can see the faces of people on stage without a jumbotron. Staying at the Centre makes for a very relaxing mini get-away from Calgary. Will definitely stay again.

“Several rooms have balconies. Campus has several buildings including restaurants, gallery, wine bar, hosts music and performance events. Fantastic facilities, great pool, climbing wall, fitness centre. 10 minute walk to town. Rooms are kept in good condition. Hiking trails and views in every direction. A different Banff experience from busy downtown.”
