As a solo traveller, getting 'Value for money' is important. I intended staying 2-3 nights only, because I was travelling around the National Park and was going to try staying in Banff. Wrong! I stayed 8 nights! I had one of the apartments. It was magnificent. A one bedroom apartment with a separate shower/bathroom, fully equipped open plan kitchen and... More

We wanted a quick weekend getaway to Banff and wanted the dogs to come. All of the hotels in Banff that were pet friendly didn't include any of the nice features that we were looking for (fireplace, big room, kitchette) in their designated pet rooms. At Castle Mountain ALL of their cabins are pet friendly! We couldn't believe it. The... More

My husband and I were married on Jan 4 2013 and found our way to Canada the next day. Many thought we were crazy for going to Canada at the beginning of winter but that's exactly what we wanted: SNOW! And boy did we get snow. We were even snowed in one full day.

Our family of 4 stayed in one of the two bedroom cabins here for 3 nights on our recent trip around the Rockies. We found it to be quite spacious and very comfortable, and very clean & tidy with all essentials provided. The setting at the base of Castle Mountain is just gorgeous, and the grounds are very pretty with... More

Let's start from positive things: the rooms are very beatiful and clean and the location is not bad as you are in the middle of Banff, Jasper and Kootenay NP. However there are so many problem that made our stay very bad (in fact absolutely the worst for us in 3 weeks in Canada). First of all the quality of... More

The lodge is rather new and we had a great suite with own living room and kitchenette. This is great after a long day of hiking. you are right between Banff and Lake Louise which makes the options so much wider than being in either location fixed.

We traveled there in hopes to stay 3 nights in mountain’s serenity. The first look at the accommodations didn’t disappoint us. The chalets look great, very clean and large. They are not inexpensive, but it looked like they offered the value to the money. Very soon however, we discovered that there was a railway trail almost adjacent to the cabins,... More

Dear Guest, I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay because of the trains. Banff National Park was actually built by the train system that came through the mountains, and as such the trains are a big part of the history. On our website we do make note of the trains and their whistle blowing to make guests... More
