Brewster’s Mountain Lodge: “Comfortable hotel in the centre of Banff”

This is a very big hotel right in the centre of Banff. Very convenient if you want to explore Banff National Park.

We were very pleased with our room: very big, two queen size beds, nice bathroom and everything very clean. Only remark: there wasn’t any air conditioning in the room, only a fan. It wasn’t very warm when we stayed in Banff, so we didn’t mind.

The hotel offers a whirlpool and a sauna, which sadly we didn’t had a chance to try, because we only stayed for one night. The facilities looked very clean though.

Sadly the breakfast was a big disappointment. First of all, it was kind of hard to find the breakfast area, which had no windows, had terrible impractical chairs and was not cozy at all. There were almost no breakfast options to speak of. No eggs, bacon or charcuterie. The only thing I liked was the fresh fruit salad and the yoghurt. A super healthy breakfast, it was.

Staff at the reception was very helpful en friendly. It was no trouble at all to make some bookings for us.

Stayed August 2015. You can find my review about Brewster’s Mountain Lodge also on TripAdvisor. My scores: value 4/5, rooms 5/5, service 4/5.

Sulphur Mountain: “Stunning views”

You can either hike to the top or take the gondola. We were lazy, so we took the gondola. The gondola is quite expensive, but will get you on the top in no time.

The views on Banff from Sulphur Mountain really are incredible, extra bonus points for the reconstructed weather station and the interesting information about the Cosmic Ray Staion.

Highly recommended.
