    Friendly service upon arrival (upgraded to a better room as all standard rooms were booked) Clean rooms Great complimentary breakfast special all for a very reasonable price Would definately stay there again

    Great place to stay in a good location for a decent price

    The location was great, right in the centre of Banff. There was also a really nice vibe to the hotel. It was busy and bustling yet the health facility was quiet so you could find space to relax. It was one of the cheaper hotels of our holiday and was great value for money. Unlike lots of the other hotels around parking, breakfast (good selection of hot and cold buffet) and WiFi are all free. It was clean and I would recommend it.

    Outside our room was were staff accessed underground with what looked like large bins of rubbish...it was quite noisy!

    Desk staff very helpful and friendly. Easy access to town. clean and well maintained.

    On a very hot day dissapointed that hotel rooms do not have air conditioning. Although 2 fans were supplied one was broken.

    Fabulous

    Location to downtown restaurants and shopping was good. Health Club was very nice. Breakfast was good but a bit over-priced.

    Temperature of room was either too hot or too cold - couldn't regulate temperature to a comfortable level. Very noisy when other guests used their bathroom - woke us up early in the morning.

    Location is great and they have a bar/restaurant within the hotel.

    When we checked in we were upgraded from the standard room to the deluxe room. But in reality it felt like a downgrade!! Bathroom was not clean. There was dust and hair in the bathroom in some corners. The bath tub contained stains and was not properly cleaned. We thought of having a cup of coffee and we were dissapointed that the inside of the coffee maker was dusty, seems like nobody used it in a while. Just to draw comparison hotels like Extended Stay America are way better in cleanliness and cheaper. Unless u want to stay close to Banff I would never recommend this hotel.

    Facilities and location to downtown.....

    The fact that my room heating wasn't working and they supplied me with a small room heater, after i asked to be moved...not very impressed.and because of the noise of the Heater fan all night did not get a good sleep.I'm not sure if i will use this place again nor recommend it because of this.......I will be attending a conference in Nov19th & 20th and i was looking at staying in the Ptarmingan Inn......??????/

    Proximity to down town and the low cost.

    Fabulous

    Location; clean, comfortable, courteous and helpful staff, accessible, room well sized, thoughtfully designed bathroom.

    No way of controlling temperature of room; we found it too warm. Breakfast buffet dry and unappetising, but a la carte menu very good. Dinner menu-- better eats elsewhere.

    Exceptional

    The room was way clean and comfortable. The location is almost perfect, a big supermarket is like 1 minute walk. Spa (hot pool) was quite relaxing!

    We had problems because we once changed our reseration details online. We were not on the guest list at the check-in and the amount of our room charge was wrong at the check-out. But the front desk staffs were always helpful and kind. So actually that was no prob :)

    I was very disappointed. Looks great from the outside, but when you get past the front desk it was run down and dirty. I will not stay there again.

    not clean, confusing layout, underground parking was "scary"

    Good

    It was in a great location and the price was affordable.

    The hotel has no A/C and our room was small.
