                                            • On site, we ate at the waldhaus and had a fantastic meal, service recieved at the hotel was AMAZING. Staff were friendly and enthusiastic, at least the bed was nice, the outdoor heated pool was incredile.

                                              Price of room was very expensive.

                                              The room was small, overfull of dated furniture, grubby , dirty.

                                              Reception staff not friendly to the point of being rude, tiny bathroom, tinest TV I have seen in decades.

The hotel is just amazing and staff are really nice and cant do enough for you. The spa facilities are really good and the beautician are polite friendly and professional.

                                              Room not very clean.

                                            • The mountain stone massage was too fantastic for words and the pool and spa area was free. Fairmont Banff was wonderful and the staff were very nice. Room service was also excellent and one great restaurant was the Saltlick.

                                            • Beautiful facility set into the mountains, the pool area is nice and the hot tub even better, the hotel in general the service and the great food. The staff are friendly and efficent, one of the best things about the Banff Springs is the Spa.

                                              Small rooms for the price.

                                            • Luxury in the mountains and awesome location. The Banff springs is amazing and staff is also very attentive and friendly. Afternoon tea in the same room is very nice, the outdoor jacuzzi is perfect for the crisp mornings and evenings, we noticed that Canadians use the word 'Perfect' a great deal.

                                              Food there was mediocre at best.

                                            • Great restaurants in town, outdoor surroundings are breathtaking and best hotel I have ever stayed at. The staff at the Banff springs are considerate and friendly, the rooms are spotless. Breakfast in particular is good value, facilities at this property are amazing.

                                              No tub in the very small bathroom and very expensive food. The large indoor pool was not very busy.

                                            • The mountain views were spectacular and the Maple grill in town was exceptional as well. Hotel was very nice and service was superb. The room was fantastic, huge and for such a great facility the food did not meet expectation. The heated outdoor pool was especially fabulous.

                                              The staff from the front doors to the lounge were not helpful at all, the bed was comfortable, not as comfortable as other Fairmonts I have stayed in and the small fridges were not set at an appropiate temperature causing the loss of medication.

                                            • More than just a hotel and quick service. Bathroom was small and did not compliment the beautiful room.
