We had a wonderful time staying at this true rocky mountain resort. I highly recommend a room with a wood burning fireplace. The hotel was close to all the amenities of Banff, but in a nice quiet location. The morning breakfast was 10/10 and the hot tub was great.

Great rustic feel, friendly staff, and quality rest. Love the prepared wood burning fireplace, Rooms were clean, big bathroom that was well equipped, definitely an experience we will remember. Would highly recommend this for a wedding venue.

Wish the room was more updated and cleaner especially for the price we paid for our room. Also robes in the room would be nice too since it is an outdoor hot tub. The floors were not vacuumed and the mirrors were gross. But the view out our back door was amazing and so was the complimentray shuttle service!

The last hotel my husband and I stayed in during our trip to Canada. The hotel is on the road that goes up Tunnel Mountain (or Sleeping Buffalo Mountain if you want to call it by the name the First Nations People call it). It is just outside Banff. There is a bus that goes fairly frequently up and down... More

We enjoyed our stay in a premier room, which was large and quiet, with log fire, armchairs and huge bathroom. The only hotel we stayed in during our 2 week + holiday in Canada which did not have a small fridge, but not a massive problem. A kettle was provided on request for tea making but no pots of milk...

Great location and the front desk staff was very helpful. An easy ride to the start of the Gran Fondo, and we enjoyed the dog friendly room. My sister and I enjoyed a well presented meal at the Cilantro Mountain Cafe. It was a bit of a struggle to find garlic free foods the chef managed a great meal. The... More

Once or twice a year, I take off to Banff and I always stay on Beautiful Tunnel Mountain because it is quieter than the town and there are walking trails.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a peaceful retreat on Tunnel Mountain in Banff, AB. The lodge is surrounded by 9 acres of towering fir, pine, and spruce trees, yet just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the shopping, nightlife and restaurants that are on offer in downtown Banff. A favourite visitor pastime is to observe the deer and elk who frequently nibble on the lawn, right outside the lodge's windows. The lodge has 108 guest rooms, an outdoor hot tub, and several options for dining, making it the ideal location for a weekend getaway, wedding, or corporate retreat. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts' family of companies. Rooms at the lodge have fieldstone wood-burning fireplaces, cozy duvets, LCD televisions and Blu-ray players. Many feature patios or balconies. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect the mountain lifestyle in Banff-the accommodation is anything but 'cookie cutter.' The outdoor stainless steel hot tub is best enjoyed after an invigorating hike, bike or ski on one of the nearby trails-or perhaps to aid digestion after a sumptuous meal in the lodge's highly acclaimed restaurant, Sleeping Buffalo. ... more   less
