Fantastic resort in Banff. Great proximity to downtown, but up in the mountains a bit. Good rooms, bathrooms a little small. Excellent staff and service. Food was good, but not great. If you want a nice resort close to hiking and natural beauty, this is it!

Can't say enough about this place. Accommodations are cozy, beds are amazing and the food fantastic! We had a hike during the day and came back and had a glass of wine by the fire. We went for dinner and both of us were empresses with our meals. I am Celiac and they didn't skip a beat accommodating me. Breakfast...

The location is nice out of the hustle and bustle of main downtown Banff on Tunnel Mountain, which is no trouble with the free shuttle service. We had a Buffalo Open studio room. Nice room overall except the bed. These rooms have a Murphy bed in them for the cost per night I think this needs to change. When you...

We checked in about 4.00pm after a super day at Johnson Canyon and a dip at the Banff Upper Hot Springs. We booked via "Bookit.com" for a rate of $129.00 plus tax. Checking was fast and easy. It was a super cute room with a queen sized bed and a fireplace that was ready to light. Great location up Tunnel...

Our stay at Buffalo Mountain Lodge didn't start as how we imagined for our honeymoon and first trip to Banff. When we checked in we were given a small room with two single beds. That being said, this was an obvious oversight by our travel agent and no fault of the lodge. We told reception the circumstances and spoke to...

We were pleasantly surprised when we pulled up to this hotel just a few blocks from downtown Banff. The room was well done in wood and had a fireplace with unlimited firewood just outside our door! Bathroom was first-class and very big. I would say it looks more expensive than it actually is. Be prepared to pay plenty if you...

After lots of research I thought I had found the perfect birthday setting in Banff.

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
