Ideal location in scenic Banff
Due to its unique and perfect location, guests were able to have a relaxing yet convenient stay. The property is far enough from the noisy crowds but accessible and close enough to travel all the major tourists' spots within Banff. Moreover, it is located near the woods where guests can witness the magnificent view of nature.
No air-conditioning system
Guests were disappointed with the lack of an air conditioning system inside the rooms. It was quite hard for guests to function normally inside the rooms especially during hot season. There was also no proper ventilation, so the rooms had hot temperature despite opening windows or turning on the fan.
No reception area provided
Most of the negative reviews were from guests who were annoyed with the lack of proper reception or front desk area. Guests had to walk a few blocks away just to register so it was inconvenient for them to cross the street especially those who have mobility issues.
Unsatisfying pool facility
Previous guests had issues with the outdoor swimming pool as it was closed or under maintenance most of their stay. It was also quite far since it was located at the back of the property so guests had to make an extra effort to walk across the street just to use the pool area.
