      A beautiful old castle-like hotel. Plenty to see in and around the ground, with ample photo opportunities.

      The location is very special and the views are magnificent. This hotel is styled on an old Scottish castle. Very impressive but absolutely huge and much larger than any castle we have come across in Scotland! Our room was large and comfortable with all the expected facilities. Unfortunately they weren't very good at topping up tissues, toilet paper and tea bags but we have noticed the same problem at the other Fairmont hotels we have stayed in during our visit to Canada. There is a fantastic array of restaurants, but don't set your heart on dining in any particular one of them because you are more likely than not to find it is closed for a function! Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay very much. The service was generally very good and the servers polite and friendly. The overall feel was historic and a bit special, well worth a visit.

      This hotel is amazing. Our first room was 220 sq ft and too small. Then we upgraded and felt much better. Staff is great, views fabulous, and food is very good.

      Our bed is up 2 steps

      This is an amazing place to stay, steeped in 125 years of history and beautifully maintained and restored. The Fairmont Banff Springs is a castle with magnificent views, specialty shops and 7 restaurants. The staff were great and quite a few of them are Aussies.

      Every sort of shop and restraint is here too, 15 min walk, or a bus out front, to the centre of town

      Banff is beautiful. A small township with the Main Street just two blocks long is just the launchpad for nature's majesty. And the day was sparkling under clear blue skies and bright sunshine. It was warm! The morning served up the promised and needed sleep-in and by 10 we were out and about exploring the back yard of The Castle. The 15th hole of …

      The alarm did its job this morning and rattled us out of bed. Another early start in paradise and with usual efficiency the luggage was taken care of, checkout was invisible and the bus was waiting with the driver smiling and ready to deliver us to the red carpet entry of The Rocky Mountaineer for Day 2 on the train. We were farewelled by two …

      Yesterday we got up & headed along the 'back road' (1A) from Banff to Lake Louise. We have driven this road many times before & as well as only doing 50-60kmh, compared to 90kmh on the highway, it offers the best chance to see animals. We came across some nice deer in a low meadow (but no hunting in the National Park - Avni) & then hit …

After saying goodbye to Leanna, we headed off and made a short stop for breakfast at Denny's, then headed to Lori and Dave's place, where they showed me around their Condo. Lori has a great collection of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit memorabilia, many pieces I've not …
