Hidden Ridge Resort
Ranked #14 of 34 Hotels in Banff
Reviewed 9 August 2016

Our family stayed 4 nights. Even the firewood was prepared and ready, with kindling and matches. Well appointed and attractive. The enormous hot tub and pool were facing the mountains. Lobby staff were always available and willing to provide many free Popsicles to the kids. The kitchen was completed so we were able to prepare many meals. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate available 24 hours a day. Coffee packets delivered to the condo for making coffee. We really liked it!

Arletta F, we appreciate the time you took to review your stay with us at Hidden Ridge Resort. We're so happy to read that you enjoyed your 4 night stay with us and the facilities and services we provide. The wood burning fireplaces in all the suites are enjoyed by many of the guests. Our younger guests always enjoy the free freezies they can pick up at the desk, and some of the adults do too. If you ever find yourself back in the Banff area, we certainly hope you will return to visit us too.

The rooms are self contained and roomy. Only negative is noise from room above. So get an upper room. All rooms are in the 2 level form.
The pool is heated with a perfect setting. Very friendly helpful staff.
Bikes available to take a ride.
Has a bus at entrance to take to downtown Banff so you don't have to drive or park when it's busy.
Flowers everywhere

A quiet location, nice units with well stocked with crockery and cutlery, the room we had needed some repairs otherwise was clean and comfortable. The resort had plenty of parking including some undercover. The unit also had a lovely fireplace. Not too far from centre of town approximately 5/10 minute drive. Staff were very friendly, good for a holiday but in my opinion not so good for travellers who are only passing through as there was no breakfast available at the Resort.

Sukire, thank you for the time you took to review your stay at Hidden Ridge Resort. We're happy to read you enjoyed the facilities we provide in all the suites and throughout the resort. We do not have a restaurant, or breakfast in the lobby, here at Hidden Ridge Resort as all the suites have fully stocked kitchens for guests to prepare breakfast to their liking. We certainly hope we can welcome you back on your next trip to the Bow Valley.

These rooms have a full kitchen with plates, cups, pots, and pans. The common areas even have barbecue grills that you can use! Eating breakfast and dinner at the hotel will ultimately save you oodles of cash; yeah, I know you're on vacation and you don't want to cook, but eating out in Banff can be pricey and eventually lead to clogged arteries (poutine... case closed). Pick up your groceries at the IGA downtown; this place can be VERY busy, too, so be patient or go at an off-hour. There's a beer/liquor store on the same block, right behind the IGA too.

The actual rooms are adequate. I'd give this place a 5-star rating, but some details, comforts and conveniences were overlooked.

The pool and hot tub are heated; they're small, but not crowded. The views from the pool are spectacular. I do wish, however, that they'd ease up on their prohibition-era policies of alcohol at the pool. Seriously, if it's in a plastic cup or can, no big deal.

Despite being out of town, the location isn't that bad. The hotel has free bus passes for you to use, and I suggest you use them. Parking in downtown Banff is challenging after 10AM. The bus will take you through town and all the way to the sulfur mountain gondola. The front desk will give you a bus schedule, and the bus stop is on Tunnel Mountain Road, just outside the hotel driveway.

If I were just traveling as a couple, I'd probably stay at the Banff Fairmont. Hidden Ridge is REALLY good for families.

CCSconsin, we appreciate the time you took to review your stay at Hidden Ridge Resort. The BBQ facilities do allow you to save money and cook as healthy (or unhealthy) as you wish, it's completely up to you. The downtown area of Banff is very busy during the summer months. The hotels, restaurants, parking lots, and grocery stores are all teaming with people. We offer complimentary bus passes to ease the trip into the downtown core. Hidden Ridge offers the conveniences of the town because we're not far out of the downtown core, but you don't have the hustle and bustle of all the traffic and pedestrians. We do limit the drinks in the pool to only those we provide in the lobby, free of charge; coffee, tea, hot chocolate and water.
We have found this to be a successful approach in allowing all of our guests to relax in the pool while soaking in the stunning surroundings. We certainly hope to be able to welcome you and your family back on your future stays to the Banff area.

Peter C, thank you for your review of Hidden Ridge Resort. We're happy to read that you enjoyed your time with us. The hot tub allows you to soak and relax your muscles while enjoying the breathtaking views. Our BBQ areas are a feature many guests enjoy, and the staff gets hungry at times with the smell of freshly cooked grilled food. We certainly look forward to welcoming you back during the ski season.

Stayed here for 2 nights with another family. Comfortable with functional kitchen. Despite the resort being full and the units quite close to each other, surprised that the place was fairly quiet. Agree with other reviewers that the condo is a little dated but better than hotels we have stayed along Banff Avenue during peak season. The children enjoyed the wood fireplace. Highly recommend the outdoor pool/hot tub with a fantastic view of Mount Norquay in the morning especially since it was not busy at all. Appreciated having the washer and dryer as well. The resort offers free transit pass and bike rentals and is only 2.3 km to downtown Banff but is a moderate uphill hike from downtown.

We stayed in this resort last summer and loved the rustic appeal plus the outdoor pool area which has breathtaking view and a hot tub.The rooms were little outdated but because of the view I'll give this resort four stars and it's very close to Banff downtown that I always love no matter how many times I visit it.
