Positive Reviews

positive:

Everything in Banff within walking distance

Several guests comment on the central position of the hotel, and how it meant that they could easily walk to anywhere they wanted to go in the village.

positive:

Terrific views

Of course the guests come to view the Rockies, and many guests found that they didn't even need to leave their rooms for that view. It seems that the hotel is designed to take full advantage of the setting, and most of the guest rooms have Rocky Mountain views.

positive:

The hot tub and sauna

While the pool is also appreciated by the guests, it seems it is the hot tub and sauna that they most enjoy, especially after a day skiing or boarding in some pretty cold temperatures.


Negative Reviews

negative:

Much confusion surrounding breakfast

There was much confusion surrounding breakfast in early 2016. The High Country Inn had until then been offering a free deluxe continental breakfast for some time before then. It seems the policy has changed and several guests were disappointed to have no breakfast included, or even available, in early 2016. It seems that breakfast will become available again, but no dates have been set as of February 2016.

negative:

Some problems with parking

The underground parking has been described as both very cramped and as having insufficient bays. Guests with SUV's or trucks, especially, had a hard time manoeuvring and fitting into the parking bays.

negative:

Quite a lot of noise from within and without

Many guests complain of the hotel being a fairly noisy environment. The problem seemed to be both that they were disturbed by noise when trying to sleep in their rooms, and more generally that the public areas of the hotel were just loud.
