Comfortable, quiet, and homey. Could have minor improvements but all in all we really enjoy the time we've spent here. Looking forward to our next visit to Banff and to the Buffalo Mountain Lodge. Thank you!

This establishment holds high regard for an exceptional experience in the Rocky Mountains. The fireplace was so dope!! I recommend grabbing a couple copies of the local paper and maybe some lighter fluid just to ensure an easier fire. The bathtub is an old iron style deep as a snow drift. You can buy flower petals at the IGA grocery...

One of the most stunning locations I've ever seen. The service was top notch, the food was decent. The rooms are art deco, the bathrooms are a dream, very well designed. I am planning to go back next christmas. Worth every penny!

Excellent family venue with fun and romance in one. Seasonal decorations in entry were outstanding, service was exceptional and the hot tub and fireplace made it all seem magical! Room cleanliness was the only issue. Bathroom and bedding were clean, but rugs were overlooked.

I love this hotel as I was a returned guest. Normally my husband and I stayed at one of the premier rooms. However, this time we were handed no choice but stuck with the open studio room, which was a bit disappointing. I would not go back to that room again, but will return for the food and other rooms....

This was my second visit to BML. I appreciate the log cabin style and open wood beams, the friendly service, the hot outdoor hot tub, the wood burning fireplace, and the free shuttle to and from town. The only area I'll call out for improvement is the temporary staff do a mediocre cleaning job in the rooms and there's little...

My boyfriend and I had planned to stay only one day but we enjoyed the room so much we couldn't bear to leave, so we stayed on an extra day. We stayed in the premier room and enjoyed stunning unobstructed views of Mount Rundle. We had a roaring wood fire going for two days and it was paradise. Highly recommend...

My husband and I celebrated our overdue honeymoon at Buffalo Mountain Lodge over the festive season. This was our first trip to Canada and this hotel was the perfect base for our winter holiday.

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
