This was a wedding venue. The wedding dinner was excellent but the service was poor. The room was a bit shabby and so was the rest of the lodge. Our room had chipped paint, rickety table and burns in the carpet. The staff were friendly and helpful. Brunch was dull and ordinary.

beautiful location, a little far from downtown Banff but still within walking distance. Staff were disgenous & cold but helping with a lot of information. The lodge brunch was nothing to write home about & seemingly overpriced. We had better meals in Banff. The room was average... The bathroom was not updated & the kitchenette had a tiny fridge but...

We had a Premier King Bed room, with wood burning fireplace, heated bathroom floors with huge tub and separate shower. The room had everything one needed, complete with the fireplace ready to light. There were many piles of wood that one could use to replace the burnt logs, although the in-room wood was replaced daily. The staff was very friendly...

Pretty sure the upstairs neighbors felt it was a requirement to walk their baby elephant from 5am to 11pm and then give it water via fire hose, or at least that's what it sounded like. After a similar experience in Revelstoke I was smart and picked up earplugs and nyquil for this hotel stay. The lodge area is nice with...

My husband and I always plan a romantic get away to the mountains in March. We booked a king size room, it was on the upper level, with a mountain view, oversized bathroom with heated floors and a claw foot tub. Beautiful room, with bath robes, and a gorgeous wood burning fireplace. We loved sitting in the big leather chairs...

My wife and I stayed in a King Room Premier Suite in February. The suite was in perfect condition and made a relaxing weekend getaway for us. The dining room is very classy and the wood fireplace set the mood for being in the Canadian Rockies.

We stayed here for a wedding last Fall and really enjoyed our stay. We had the upgraded room and it was absolutely worth it - how beautiful!

The wedding venue was nice. Food was good for the wedding. But the rooms are not good. They make it so you have to pay an arm and a leg to get a nice working room. The plumbing is extremely loud. Woken up lots over the night cause of it.

Buffalo Mountain Lodge was fantastic. It's set about a mile up Tunnel Road from the town of Banff. The service was great at every level. Of all the pleasant surprises, the best was the free shuttle between the Lodge and Banff. It was like a personal taxi service. We used the fireplace in our "apartment" every night. Rooms were clean...

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
