When my husband and I stayed at the Rimrock for 2 nights, we had the Sweet Dreams special, which included breakfast each morning in the Primrose dining room.

We have had it many times in the past, including during Covid-19.

On the weekdays it's menu orders only, weekends has a small buffet. Friday morning we ordered from the menu (scan a qr code) and our meal was excellent. Two perfectly cooked over easy eggs, toast, sausage, bacon and cubed hash browns. Also comes with a carafe of coffee (and to go cups) as well as orange juice.

Our server was attentive and we were offered freshly made jam to go with our toast. You do have to ask for salt and pepper, so make sure you do ahead of time as we had to wait with our food getting cold for our server to bring to us.

Saturday we tried the buffet - the food is behind plexiglas and you have to shout a bit to ask for what you would like. Omelettes are "pre made", 3 types so if you want something specific you have to ask your server (we didn't know this). It was a bit disappointing from "pre Covid" so we will stick with the menu option going forward/next time.

With the Sweet Dreams promotion, the cost of breakfast is added to your room and removed at check out. Just need to pay a gratuity.

We love our breakfast at The Primrose, the food is delicious, service good and views spectacular! Looking forward to our next visit.

We had our post-wedding dinner in March. Due to Covid-19 each household had its own table and they made a special 4-course menu for us so it really felt like we were celebrating our wedding. The staff went over the rules and restrictions with Covid-19 and though we were sitting at our own table we didnt feel like strangers as we saw our family and friends enjoying the dinner at their respective tables. Food was amazing. We had a server by the name PJ and his service was excellent. Explained everything on the menu. It was perfect! This wasn't the first time at the Rimrock. We love going here. Will keep going there over and over again.

Enjoyed 2 breakfasts at The Primrose while staying at The Rimrock Resort Hotel.

In the past we enjoyed the buffet breakfast but this stay was during the week so we enjoying trying meals from the menu.

The Rocky Mountain Breakfast was outstanding - lots of food to fill you up for a day of hiking and exploring Banff. Unlimited refills on the most fresh orange juice we've every had, a carafe of coffee & "to go cups" as well.

Very attentive service & stunning views from your table.

Would like to try dinner sometime but we've always enjoyed our breakfasts here.
