          Banff Castle experience

          Reviewed
          by (22 reviews) , Australia Flag of Australia

          Beautiful castle set amongst a forest, mountains, golf course and lake. What a setting. Staff so attentive - (Canadians know what customer service means). Everything is BIG - though being such an old building the actual rooms are not - though perfectly adequate. ( why stay in your room?) bed comfortable - breakfast superb. Great place to experience the Rockies.

          Very comfortable beds and all you would want, including beautiful views out to the mountains, and river below. this place is built like a castle, nestled in the hills near the township.

          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.

          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.
