There's nothing that the staff at Bow View Lodge won't do for you. From the moment you check in, the dedicated, friendly and knowledgeable staff is there to help you with most any request. The concierge can point you in the direction of entertainment venue, eateries, bars and the city's most popular tourist destinations.
A good family hotel
This hotel is happy to welcome families and offer spacious rooms and such amenities as adjoining rooms and babysitting services. Kids under 15 stay for free and the indoor heated pool, located just next door, is a boon, as are the many outdoor activities that are close at hand.
A great location
This hotel is located in a quiet part of the city, yet you are just a five minute walk from downtown Banff. With loads of restaurants, bars, eclectic and world-class shops within walking distance, you hardly need your car.
Needs an update
Although the guest rooms at Bow View Inn are spacious, the property is beginning to show its age. The water takes a long time to heat up and the carpeting and some furnishings are in need of replacement.
The walls are thin
The walls and ceilings at this hotel are rather thin which means that you can hear conversations from the rooms that surround you and footsteps from your overhead neighbours. For a quieter stay, be sure to request a corner room on the top floor.
Housekeeping is hit or miss
Sometimes the housekeeping staff at here is thorough and sometimes it really missed the mark. Carpets that need a good cleaning and dust in places long-neglected are the worst offenders.
