We popped in for lunch and a quick tour while in town. Food was wonderful! The atmosphere at the Rundle Lounge was relaxing and our table at the window had an incredible view! We look forward to staying here one day!

We went there for supper while our grand children attended a Christmas gathering for kids. The place is located in the Banff Springs hotel so the setting is spectacular. There was someone playing the piano when we got there so we thought the ambiance was great. Unfortunately as soon as we sat down they announced a two hour break, just... More

Wonderful atmosphere. We had gone after dark so I think it would be amazing to see the views in the day light. We had walked there from downtown. Definitely a decent walk but watch out for the elk bedded down beside the sidewalks.

It's all about the view as far as we're concerned. If you're lucky enough to have a window table (which we always wait for) you will have a breathtaking view of the valley, the mountains, and the golf course. We try to arrive late in the afternoon so we get to see the glow of the setting sun on the... More

As I wasn't staying at the Banff Springs, but wanted a good way to still experience it, I booked the afternoon tea on a recent Sunday in October. They were doing a special royal tea, with sandwich and cake recipes from the royal British family. The staff were excellent, and I loved my table at the window looking up the... More

Simply incredible mountain views from the lounge and balcony. A bit limited on the wine and whiskey lists, but there are lots of other options. Very comfortable seating for groups or a couple seeking a quiet spot. It does offer an afternoon tea, for those that are so inclined.

For the third time this year, we enjoyed the afternoon high tea offered at the Rundle Lounge in the Banff Springs Hotel. It was wonderful and decadent!
