“Family Ski Holiday”
Reviewed 11 February 2016

Excellent accommodation only a short walk from downtown Banff. We had adjoining rooms which were clean and spacious with a kitchenette area. The complimentary breakfast offered a variety of option, but make your own waffles was the highlight!
Reception staff were very helpful and Sue gave us great information about skidooing.
"Chillis to go" restaurant was great and offered a varied menu to suit all tastes.
The hot pool was welcome after a day of skiing.
The ski bus stop to Sunshine, Lake Louise and Mount Norquay was at the hotel next door, so only a short walk with ski kit.

We stayed at the Fox on Tuesday the 9th of Feb. Immediately the Front Desk Agent was warm and welcoming. She also gave us an upgrade to a suite. Using the underground hot-tub was such a nice addition. Breakfast was delicious for being complimentary and a late check-out was given. No changes needed for this hotel it was lovely!

This hotel feels more expensive than it is because it is so nice! Perfectly located to have a nice walk to the main area of town. Our room was upgraded to a suite which was very nice as we were just there for one night. Very clean room and the staff was so friendly and helpful. LOVED the grotto hot tub! Would absolutely stay here again.

Rooms were smaller than expected but comfortable beds. Liked Grotto hot pools but leaned leg against light underwater while sitting on a ledge and sustained a burn from contact with light and skin. Liked free bus passes offered. Wish room had small fridge and/or microwave

We stayed in a one bedroom suite that could be accessed by the road adjacent to Banff Avenue, so we could park outside and offload the day's skiing gear easily. It is easy walking distance to town but we enjoyed Chillies Restaurant located in the hotel which served good food and beer. The grotto style hot pool was good and we enjoyed the relaxed style of the hotel

Always nice to stay here , there breakfast vouchers are nice . But they could do better on the food . Only protein was boiled eggs and yogurt . The rooms are nice and cabin feel . The pool is exceptional . Close walk to downtown . Close to many activities .

We stayed in the Fox hotel for 2 nights. On arrival at the hotel we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite. This was very spacious and consisted of a bedroom with 1 king size bed, a further bedroom with 2 double beds, 2 bathrooms and a lounge, kitchen and dining area. All rooms are accessed by a open corridor. The pool in the basement is excellent with good facilities. We ate breakfast in the hotel which was adequate but with little choice. The hotel is within walking distance to the town, and you can catch the local buses to the various attractions, the hotel provides you with a free bus pass. Staff on reception are very helpful, we would return to this hotel again if in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.
