“Great anniversary weekend”

Our weekend was most enjoyable and topped off by the pleasant and courteous staff and added touches by management. (Special thanks to Katy on the front desk and to manager David Pearson.)

This hotel is a most charming and comfortable place to stay in Banff – ideally located steps from the town centre, shops and restaurants and surrounded by amazing mountain views. Highly recommend and we plan to return!

“Great visit!”

We had a beautiful winter/spring vacation here in the king superior room! Location is central, staff was friendly as well as helpful, a discount booklet was included, and the view was incredible! The breakfast buffet had delicious options! Overall, definitely would stay again

“Ski Trip”

I didn’t personally originally want to go to Banff because I much prefer skiing in and skiing out I have to say the bus for all the local ski fields stopped right outside once we got to the ski fields put our skis straight on and onto the lifts. Really great time there came with a complimentary breakfast and we enjoyed eating and drinking in the bar at night.

“A delightful stay”

I’ve just spent a few weeks on vacation and stayed at the Ptarmigan. I would like to start by saying the staff that work at this hotel are amazing! They really do go above and beyond to ensure their customers are happy, whether its the front desk with room concerns, the breakfast staff or the two lovely gents that work on the bar. The rooms at the Ptarmigan have all just been renovated and are great, everything you could want. The beds are insanely comfy all equipped with an incredible amount of fluffy pillows. The housekeeping staff keep the rooms nice and clean throughout the stay, they even change the sheets every two to three days which is great.

“Ptarmigan Inn, Banff”

Hotel was very nice, staff very friendly. Rooms were clean and looked after. When I called to book the room, the girl I spoke with did some checking and found me a great deal, including breakfast each morning. The hotel is right downtown and an easy walk to all the other amenities. I would certainly stay here again.


“top value for money for the location and breakfast”

This is still only a 3 star hotel but for snowboarding Lake Louise and Sunshine this location is unbeatable. I could not believe the price as it is comparable to what we pay for a hostel in the snow at Thredbo (which says more about the prices in Thredbo). This hotel had the shuttles stop right in front (no joke, you could fall out of the reception area to the bus stop). Had a hot breakfast each morning before riding. It was included in the room rate.
