Great place to stay for several reasons. First I love the fact that it is up the Tunnel Mountain Road away from the busy streets of downtown. We like to take advantage of an evening walk down the mountain to have dinner and walk it off coming back. We enjoyed that routine. The lodge itself was great with a nice...

Excellent location and venue. Friendly, helpful staff. Loved the room I stayed in. Food for our meetings was great. The only concern was that the speaker system for our meeting was not working properly.

Overall the actual room was pleasant enough. The wood burning fireplaces are a nice touch, and was one of the main reasons this hotel was chosen. Well done on that. Stayed in a Buffalo Open Studio Room. The small kitchenette was well equipped. We were on the main floor, and there was a room above us (we were in 403)....

We stayed at the lodge with many other wedding guests for my son's wedding and we all loved it. In every respect it was a perfect place to stay in Banff, lovely homey well serviced rooms with open fires and cooking facilities, relaxed lounge with open fire and great restaurant with variable priced and affordable menu.

I was first a guest at Buffalo Mountain Lodge about 10 years ago and fell in love. I have returned many times since. I am always beckoned by the wooden log design, the wood burning fire places in the rooms, the slate floors, the clawfoot tubs, and the overall charm and ambiance of feeling like you are in a secluded...

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....

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
