We have stayed at this location many times over the years and it never disappoints! Romantic rooms with wood burning fireplaces makes our visit perfect every time. All the staff is great & very accommodating & there room service is also very good for the people who just want to stay close to the warm fireplace.

As soon as we walked in, we were greeted with amazing customer service. The staff went above and beyond during our whole stay to make sure we were comfortable. A big shoutout to David who took us around to view a new room to potentially upgrade to (which we did) and who also drove the shuttle service to downtown. The...

We had a lovely time here. The room was comfortable but unfortunately smelt of log fire smoke. It's a nice gimmick but you end up stinking of smoke when you wake up in the morning​. The food and drink in the restaurant were tasty, and the hot tub was very nice.

We stayed here a few years back and loved it and have raved about this property to friends/family. However the hotel has not been kept up since our last visit. The room was so dirty and stained and furnishing in bad repair. You didn't even want to sit down on the bed or chairs as you were you're of and...

My son (18) and I stayed here for a week of skiing and really enjoyed it. We upgraded to a premier room and it was great. Well appointed, clean, lovely bathroom with great shower roll top bath, heated floor, incredibly comfortable beds and an awesome working log fire. There's a small but very cosy bar area with a great fire...

I arranged for our company's corporate meeting/dinner to be held at Buffalo Mountain lodge and I also recommended for my colleagues to stay at the hotel. The hotel needs a "refresh"!!! Very dated. It was so beautiful 20 years ago so I hope they will invest the money to bring it back to life.

Best experience we've ever had anywhere, we'll be back! Once you're there you never want to leave and don't really need to. The lounge is cozy and has a great wine list and the dining room has amazing food! Then you go back to your beautiful room and cozy up to the fireplace!

We were at this hotel for a Friday Saturday night. The beds and pillows are super comfortable. We were in a room with 2 queens and a fireplace. The room was pretty tight with the 2 chairs in front of the fireplace. I found it funny that the room had earplugs but after sleeping there it was understandable. When the...

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
