Beautiful place !
Everything was perfect
We did not get to have the breakfast :( I was hoping to stay in the main building but ended up in the Gate House. View was great. Room was great. Wish rooms were a little cheaper otherwise I would stay there more.
The location is excellent, pretty close to the Norquay ski resort and the Banff town. While you are having the spa in the outdoor pool and having the afternoon tea, you can enjoy the lovely view of the Rockies Mountain.
However, the hotel is too pricey, and surprisingly, you don't get an extra discount for the spa or the afternoon tea because you are staying here. You can simply buy spa tickets and afternoon tickets and stay at Banff other hotels to save money.
The hotel is gorgeous, impressive and in a beautiful forest, close to the town. Amenities are amazing. Staff/service was fantastic. It is very pricey but the price is not a surprise for this style of travel.
Liked it all. Can’t think of anything that could be better
Grand medieval style castle. Magnificent views over Bow river and falls. Close to town and Sulphur Mountain gondola.
Need to put privacy sign up until leaving the room. Cleaning staff a little hasty in entering before we had the chance to open the door.
