Attractive property, but a bit 'tired'. Our unit could have used a punch list of small items that needed to be tightened, dusted, repaired or switched out. Someone else checked into our room right after we arrived - the staff left a lovely cheese plate that night. Classy move in an otherwise so-so stay.

Buffalo Mountain Lodge is a great place for a quiet getaway in the Banff National Park. It's location, near the top of Tunnel Mountain Road sets you apart from the village's hustle and bustle. The staff are friendly and quick to help out when necessary. We will definitely look at making this our stop for future trips to Banff.

Room was just ok. Not sure when the last time the rug was vacuumed as there was lots of dust behind beds and table. Fireplace was a nice touch but fire would not stay lit.. cheap firewood. Was looking forward to outside hot tub but when I got in, it was just lukewarm. Another guest asked front desk to turn...

Love the location and used the fireplace every night - wonderful! It was a slower time and we were put in one of the older units which were very dark inside. The ice machine didn't work for two days and the hot tub was basically warm bath water. They put a mini fridge in the place of where there was...

My husband and I stayed at the Buffalo Mountain Lodge as part of a Backroads cycling trip, and it did not disappoint. The rooms were cozy and inviting, and the lodge itself was in a perfect mountaintop location. The morning breakfast buffet kept us energized for our cycling days, and we had a delicious evening dinner to kick off our...

Despite the limited amount of parking space at this lodge, this was an amazing experience from the time of check in to checkout. Friendly and helpful staff to greet you. The room was very clean. Our room had a patio with a good view a wood burning fireplace with free firewood which was already setup in a bucket for us....

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
