          • Older travelers
            10.0

            We really enjoyed the room with the balcony. It was very spacious and relaxing. The continental breakfast was very delicious and well supplied and the room service was excellent.

          • Older travelers
            9.0

            Good location, friendly helpful staff and near town centre.

            Room was opening onto atrium, therefore no window to open and poor privicy through net curtains.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            I loved the location. Bathroom was clean.

            No room safe; older mattress; "free" breakfast was sub-par

          • Single
            8.2

            Proximity to the town of Banff, free buffet breakfast.

            Hotel layout a bit convoluted.

          • Family with children
            8.8

            Breakfast was very good.

            Shower noises from other rooms - maybe upstairs.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Excellent hotel, good location, only complaint was the rooms were very dark.

          • Couple
            8.8

            Great breakfast buffet which is included in the room price!

            We booked 3 mths in advance and they put us in a first floor room right beside the squeaky/noisy/rusty service elevator which they ran one night until 11pm! When I complained they looked at me like I was the crazy one! They stopped it but it took a fight! Totally unacceptable. I have been staying at this hotel every year on business for the past 5 years but I will never stay there again!

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Location. Close to amenities. Comfortable beds.

            No air conditioning in the rooms. One small little fan and no air circulation with window open.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The staff were very friendly on checkin and throughout our short stay. Ptamigan Inn offered free wireless internet and free local calls which came in handy for verifying our plans during our stay. On checkout they held our bags while we went into town to collect our hire car. They were very accommodating of our requests

            The bathroom was very small

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            unfortunately, we were there for only one night. We would definitely stay there again if we get a chance to visit Banff in the future. The staff were excellent and the restaurant very good.

            the trains kept me awake during the night, but I am a very light sleeper. My partner slept soundly.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            The location.

            We booked 3 months in advance, for 5 nights, a 'Superior' room. We were given a room that had a vending machine and an ice machine along one wall (outside the room) and the air con system at the exterior wall. We were so tired on arrival that we didn't notice, but got very little sleep in this noisy room. Checked out the next morning. Staff did offer us one of their best rooms for the remainder of our stay, but we felt that we should have been given better service initially, especially considering the length of our booking. We did receive a discount on the room charge.

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            The Hotel was close enough to walk everywhere which I liked.

            The Hotel itself is very old and in need of some re-doing and updating. No time like the present.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            The hotel is very close to main stores and restaurants and has an indoor parking lot.

            The hotel does not have facilities (fridge and/or microwave) and is not suitable for families with small kids.

          • Couple
            7.0

            Easy access

            The climate inside the inn was not very satisfactory. It was way to hot, and couldn't cool down.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Desk clerks were friendly and immediately responded to concerns and questions. The location was great.

            Didn't like the location of the restaurant. Felt like it was in a basement.
