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. You can also enjoy quick bites at our Buffalo Mountain Cafe.

Fantastic weekend stay. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The room we stayed in was the buffalo suite. It is newly renovated and clean. It is in a quiet location and easily accessible. We will be back!

Being in customer service industries, both my husband and I highly value customer service. Buffalo mountain delivers. Super friendly staff, especially the manager Tas always make us feel like this is our home away from home. The rooms are always clean, the views are amazing and we love that it’s not right downtown, so it’s a little quieter. Everything is right there. There’s a large open space with trails just outside door, a little cafe for grabbing a quick bite or the restaurant is a great option for room service. My husband especially enjoys the fireplace in the room. We’ve been to other hotels in Banff, but we keep coming back to Buffalo Mountain. It’s just better. Thank you from Chris and Armo

This place is a gem. Even with restrictions this holiday was a welcome retreat from the busy I deal with every day. Real wood burning fireplace and deep tub made each evening a luxury. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the food was fantastic. Wild boar and continental breakfast were my favourite. Walking inti town took only 15-20 minutes and the weather this weekend was perfect. I really enjoyed this place and highly recommend it.

Being my first time staying in Banff BML was the perfect spot. The surroundings are amazing. The rooms are beautiful and cozy. I love that the heating system is always on point. And you can light your own fireplace!. Everything was super clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They took everyone of my request with the best actitud. I'm already planning visiting again with friends.
