      I didn't like the fact that all the balcony on each floor were connected. Never felt safe enough to open our balcony door....Weirdest situation for hotel I've ever seen.

      view of river

      having to walk outside to pool

    • Group of friends

      The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was awesome as you are walking distance to town. the nightly rate was very reasonable.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The rooms were well equipped but could use a microwave.

      The fact that they charge $10.00 for internet access.

    • Family with children

      Excellent location, rooms are a little old but clean, swimming pool is superbe, carpet all over the hotel needs to be replaced

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      The location is definitely the best part of this hotel though the rooms were clean and the view over the river was also nice.

      The room was way overpriced for what you get but I'm guessing they're charging for the location and not the hotel itself.

    • Family with children
      6.6

      Low key but comfortable

      Hard to get a good night sleep in room facing the river with the noise of the trains all night.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Great location, very quiet, staff was friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend the Bow View Lodge as a great place to stay in Banff

    • Group of friends
      8.2

      The beds were the most comfortable I have had in a mid-range hotel.It's clean, staff helpful and it is great to be able to use the facilities next door( pool, hot tub etc). Location is wonderful, a short walk to the main street. Good location, comfortable and good value for your money.

      No air conditioning. The screen was off our window and the room was too hot. Thank goodness for the fan provided.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      The location is excellent, it sits across from the Bow River and is a block from downtown. It has balconeys to sit out and enjoy the beautiful view. Parking is good and the hotel is within walking distance from all the ammenities. It is surrounded by lots of trees, but the river location is the best feature. Front desk staff were very pleasant and accomodating.

      The hotel is dated and we neglected to request a room with a balconey, assuming they all had them, but the first floor doesn't, so we were a bit disappointed. Rates for the rooms are given in pretax dollars, so don't be surprised to see another $30.00/night tacked onto the room rate (I'm sure all Banff hotels are the same)

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      This hotel is in an excellent location. Only a short walk to the town centre.Very comfortable rooms.

      Although the bedrooms were very well decorated the lift and corrridors were in need of a little freshening up.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      Location to Banff townsite and location next to Bow River (ask for river view room)

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      my family and I liked the beautiful vista from our rooms, can't beat it except at the Banff Springs\ Rimrock Hotel.

      We really liked the hotel better when there was a pool and restaurant on site.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Its location is very handy. Since it is close to the Bow river, we have had a few enjoyable walks along the river side.

    • Single
      6.6

      good location - within walking distance of main street and restaurants

      not what I expected for Banff AB - resort town - hotel was not a resort
