We went to Banff to ski and the Douglas Fir Resort was a fantastic place to enjoy before and after the day. With the generous breakfast shopping offered at the beginning of the stay to the waterslide by night, the kids had a great time. Saw lots of elk right outside the window of our room. And, enjoyed the fireplace in the evening. Short drive up to Sunshine! Will return again.

Thank you so much for your review. Our Cook Your Own Breakfast package is a hit with a lot of families for the convenience it provides with groceries already in your fridge on your arrival. Be sure to check out our variety of year round packages if you’re thinking of staying with us again in the summer. We hope to see you again soon.

What a great way to spend time with family! Our one-bedroom with loft unit was roomy enough for 6 to sleep comfortably- and for all 14 of us to gather for a casual meal.
My only complaint is that the upstairs loft tended to get too warm.

Thanks!

This place can't be beat for a fun get away with family and friends. Ski all day and enjoy the watersides and play centre in the evening. Our kids love this place. Very inexpensive and so much fun.

The Douglas Fir Resort was a great get away for our family of five including three boys under the age of six. We stayed in a loft condo which was a bit rustic, but had a very convenient/practical layout with all the amenities a family needs. The loft area had 2 full size beds (for the boys) with separate washroom and wall mounted TV. The main floor had a combined kitchen/living room with wall mounted TV including access panel, wood burning fireplace and balcony, separate bedroom with a third TV for the parents and a full bathroom. The total area of the unit was not large, but the space was well used and did not feel cramped. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs.

The indoor playground and the waterslides were great entertainment for our boys and only a short walk from our room. Overall, the resort provided great value.

This is the first time posting a review on this web-site, but after the valuable information that I have gained previously from the TripAdvisor, I felt compelled to contribute.

Room Tip: We preferred a top level loft condo further away from the reception

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay with us. We certainly have enough to keep a family busy (especially with three boys under five) and it’s great to hear our in-room amenities as well as our pools, watersides and giant indoor Playzone kept everyone entertained. We hope to see you and your family again soon!

We stayed the last weekend of Jan and dont have a single complaint about this place. This was our first trip to Banff and would return to this hotel in a heart beat. Great Kids play place, Waterslides and great friendly Staff. We had deer come right up to our sliding glass door and they even let us pet them- once in a lifetime experience and great pictures. We enjoyed having a full kitchen in our place and enjoyed the wood burning fireplace. The suite was clean, beds werent too bad and they even had a little store and liquor store on site which is convient. When we make a return to Banff one day I will Only Stay Here.

Room Tip: Room 177 is in a great location and thats where you can sit and see all the deer eating and they will come right up to you.
