Beautiful cozy "lodge feel". Loved the wood burning fireplace in the room. Amazing spot just far enough away from the real busy part of Banff. About a 20 minute walk into town Beautiful scenery. Pet friendly rooms available.

I get away to Banff every year to recharge, and this year was at the Buffalo Mountain Lodge. Great and comfy room, loved the fireplace. The staff were all very nice and any help I needed was fast. I will stay again.

Wow... it has been a year already for us on our 50th b-days since our first trip to Banff. We stayed here after reading so many reviews and working out pricing and so many things. But I still think about this place off and on yet. My heart is in the outdoors. I loved this property and it was every...

We got a gift certificate for this hotel so we used it and we regret it. The room smelled like burnt wood (I am not a camper.. this is why I stay in a hotel). The ottoman had a huge hole (a burn from the fireplace), the walls were dirty, the tile in the shower had small black hair all...

Overall impressed. Staff are excellent and food was good. My mother had mobility issues and they went out of their way to assist her with shuttling too and from the main lodge. Would recommend to others as a great place to hold a wedding or family reunion.

Stayed at this Place many times, and I keep coming back. Staff are very friendly and the rooms are nice and cozy, after we checked in they came to our door with a Card and fresh made cookies from the kitchen. Which was a nice touch.

Very friendly helpful staff. New units comfortable with natural fireplace and plentiful wood as disposal for warm stay. New units on top floor with cathedral ceilings relatively small but enjoyable. Older units on lower portion of property should be replaced.

For over $300/night you would expect they vacuum between stays. We found a playing card, an ear plug and cheese of the floor. The Carpets were FILTHY. Only clean thing were the beds (we think) for $259 we found an amazing condo place in Canmore. Luxury, mordern and clean. Banff is overrated. Only good thing, they did not charge us...

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
