We decided on this trip we would stay somewhere different. The High Country Inn didn't disappoint. The rooms were spacious and it was awesome having the little balcony off the room. We didn't notice much noise from the outside so that was definitely not an issue. It was a quick trip so we never got to try out any amenities.... More

You cannot beat the location of this hotel! It's in the middle of everything! We walked to all the restaurants & activities that we had booked.

As a family of 5 we had a pleasant two night stay at this hotel in Banff. The rooms were clean and spacious with lovely balcony views of the snow capped mountains above. The hotel is centrally located, a short walk to a grocery store and a fuel garage and a 10/15 minute walk into down town Banff. Parking was... More

Location, location, location!! Right in the center of all shopping and restaurants, you really can not beat the location. Very poor service and unattentive staff. Bathroom was terribly small in standard room. Really, TINY. Way too overpriced for the comfort offered, but then again, location here IS the key. Be aware this is a quite popular hotel with large groups... More

Good room close to close to the main downtown area. We enjoyed the small balcony; it appears all the rooms have this amenity. Since our van was a little too high for the underground garage, we parked in the back with no problem. Tyler at the front desk was very helpful with our numerous questions!

Like many of us who have travelled fairly widely, not much surprises me. As one who is used to the attentiveness and caring nature of Filipinos and Filipinas who thankfully staff a growing number of hospitality industry positions worldwide, to see an hotel employee who is the antithesis of this is a tad disconcerting. When we arrived at High Country... More

Was a little worried at first when we pulled up - but pleasantly surprised by the time we got to the room. Certainly not fancy, at first I thought my wife misspelled Fairmont haha But it's actually quite nice. Rooms were clean, had a fridge and better than normal TV/Cable. The lobby was quite plain and older, had fresh coffee,... More

Nice rooms with comfortable beds. We had a small balcony looking out towards the mountains. Huge TV, which there wasn't time to watch in beautiful Banff. Breakfast is not included but we had great breakfast at the adjoining restaurant. Within walking distance to downtown. We would stay here again.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel over Labour Day weekend. It is centrally located on Banff's main street and underground parking is available to guests.
