        • Family with children
          10.0

          Our room was very clean and spacious. The bed and hide-a-bed were very comfortable. The kitchenette was very well equipped and clean. There were plenty of thick towels, lots of toilettries and just the right amount of water pressure in the shower. The hotel was easy to find on a quiet street and a 5 minute drive to downtown Banff. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And the water slides were a blast!!

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          It was in a gorgeous setting, surrounded by mountains. It was in a lovely place to go on long walks and see the nature around us. We all enjoyed the pool and waterslide. The staff was helpful, and extremely professional and accomodating.

          the kitchen was super small. Hard to open the stove and could not fit more than one person in there, but that just made it more interesting and kind of fun.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          The facilities are excellent - our young children loved the waterslides, pools and new indoor playground which opened early in the morning (which was great, as not all children sleep in!). The condo was not luxurious but basic, kitchen was tiny and the place could do with some updating, but certainly met our needs and was worth the money.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Everything about this hotel was great! It had a warm comfy feeling like an old family cabin, it was quiet and relaxing in the rooms. We did not even have to leave the hotel once we got there, my 18 month old daughter found everything to be a blast, from the huge playground to the waterslides. We will definately be coming back to this hotel on our next trip.

          No cell phone service for telus but it was nice to get away from the phone anyways, and wish the pool and slides were in the same area .. But still give Douglas fir a 5/5 thank you so much. :D

          The set up for the room is very good. The view and the warmth in the hotel is good for cold weather. and quiet.

          I was enquire about the iron and perhaps your stuff should offer the iron or I should ask for for it.

          it was great to be able to light a fire in the morning as you were makeing breakfast . and sit and watch the wildlife wander past your door as you ate.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          This is a great hotel! This is the 4th time we have stayed here and have loved it each time! The water slides and playground are fabulous for the kids and the 1 Bedroom Condo suits our needs perfectly! We have recommended this to our friends and family.

        • Family with children

          The room was very clean and was impressed with how well it was kept up of the years. Great place for the kids and all kinds of activities inside or outside.

        • Family with children

          Lots of sleeping room

          waterslide and pool area are old and seem dirty

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Loved the indoor play center and waterslides. Kids had a great time on both. Room was comfortable and clean. Great location.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Large well appointed room with a well fitted out kitchen area. Location is very good if you don't want the hussle and bussle of downtown into the evening. We found it pleasant to walk down to the town of an evening and make use of the free bus concession when returning later.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Pretty comfortable facilities and especially, the waterslide was good. My kids really liked it.

          The dishes, pots and forks were not so clean, I had to wash again.

        • Family with children
          5.8

          Family friendly. Spacious room for big family group

        • Family with children

          We enjoyed our stay. It was very comfortable, quiet and convenient to everywhere. We would definitely stay again.

        • Family with children
          5.8

          The water park was fantastic!!! The room size was good, and kitchenette useful.

          The floors hadn't been vacuumed, and the rooms smelt bad. Could do with a coat of paint.
