Banff hotel
Enjoyed our stay, room spacious, clean and has everything you need. We were lucky to have room with balcony overlooking river. Would definitely stay again.

Great value clean hotel.
This hotel is very clean and well run. It is a simple, basic hotel, but right next door the sister hotel has a range of services, restaurants etc. It is only 2 blocks from main shopping, dining, but right on the Bow on a quiet cul de sac. Excellent value for money.

Cheap and cheerful
Basic but clean and comfortable and apart from one mrs grumpy gills, largely very friendly.and helpful staff. We had an adjoining room which on one night highlighted how unfortunately un sound-proofed the rooms can be, but at least the couple in the other room seemed to be having a good time! All in all, you get what you pay for and no real complaints here.

No frills and what I expected. Clean & convenient
Just what I expected from the other reviews. Only really used the room as a base and somewhere to sleep. Firm bed and lots to do and see around. Would have been nice for Wifi to be included, but not the end of the world at $5 a day.

Basic hotel, excellent location
We’ve stayed at Bow View for 5 weeks in total. It’s a great value hotel and in an excellent location. Fridge and kettle are handy in the room. Unfortunately we had to change rooms because of noisy neighbours (twice). And the room was absolutely freezing during a particularly cold spell, there were extra blankets and electric fan heaters available but it didn’t warm up until the weather improved. Great to use the facilities at Banff Park Lodge. Bow View is basic but good value.
