Stayed here for a week and a half and had a wonderful time. We ate each morning in the Vista dining room which has floor to ceiling windows onto the stunning view. The mountains around the Banff centre are beautiful! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the food was superb. I highly recommend anyone who'd like to stay...

The stunning setting would have been enough to make my stay enjoyable, however every other part of this experience was excellent. Good food, excellent and friendly staff - and a nice surprise to have international servers including a few English. A thoughrouly beautiful stay.

A brilliant arts compound with excellent facilities, food/beverages and hospitality. Perfect place to use as a base to explore the surrounds of Banff, great views of mountains and meet some lovely people in the centre.

Banff Centre is just wonderful. The room was comfortable and had everything I needed. The staff were remarkable and the food was consistently delicious. I went with a trainibg workshop and trying to work around those incredible views was fiercely difficult! I look forward to returning!

Absolutely stunning place for workshops and conferences. The views from the Kinear Center rooms are amazing, and for a physical performer, the variety of usable spaces and practice theatres in Lazlo are so useful compared to an average hotel or convention center.

The experience at Banff started with an unbelievable view, and ended with this fantasy world feeling like home. The guest relations were spot on - I didn't feel like I was intruding, I felt like I was providing them with entertainment, and they were taking care of me in exchange.

Staying at the Banff Centre is great. The rooms are basic, but clean and the facilities and restaurants are excellent. If you're looking for quiet time away, with gym, pool or climbing wall workouts (with steam room and hot tub access), well prepared food at non-resort prices (except for the Three Ravens Restaurant & Wine Bar, which is five star)...

“Several rooms have balconies. Campus has several buildings including restaurants, gallery, wine bar, hosts music and performance events. Fantastic facilities, great pool, climbing wall, fitness centre. 10 minute walk to town. Rooms are kept in good condition. Hiking trails and views in every direction. A different Banff experience from busy downtown.”
