Tucked into a beautiful valley in Banff National Park, this resort set against a postcard-perfect backdrop of craggy mountain peaks comprises a historical chalet and a batch of red-roof log cabins beside the Pipestone River. Décor includes pine furniture and a pile of logs to keep the wood-burning fireplace crackling all night long. The hotel’s Temple Mountain spa is a true sanctuary, while the on-site, award-winning restaurant pairs fresh produce and local game with 25,500 bottles and more than 2,200 labels from one of Canada’s largest wine cellars.
In the Area
This stretch of the Canadian Rockies is known for superior powder, and three top-notch resorts are located within Banff National Park: Mt. Norquay, Lake Louise Ski Area and Sunshine Village. Between the three resorts there’s almost 8,000 acres of skiable terrain and mountain peaks that are so epic the United Nations has declared the area a World Heritage site. Best of all, this northern latitude rocks one of the longest ski seasons in North America, from mid-November until late May. Come summer, the resort puts you within striking distance of a handful of great golf courses, including Stewart Creek Golf & Country Club, Silvertip Golf Resort, Canmore Golf and Curling Club and Banff Springs Golf Club.
How to Get There
clean room, nice private location. The staff made room up multiple times during the day. Its located near a beautiful stream and view of mountains. train nearby, but if doors are closed not a problem. Nice little pub on the premises. Nice pool and workout room.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay recently. The location, service, staff, attention to detail and the sumptuous food were a much welcomed relief from the incredible numbers of people in Banff National Park. Literally an oasis of calm and relaxation in one of the worlds most scenic areas! Well done Post Hotel.
Extremely nice and quiet resort. Rated number 3 in Canada! We had a loft room, with very comfortable suite area (with an actual wood burning fireplace). All restaurants were close and extremely good. Nice menu selection of native meats and well presented.
Stayed on the (non-rail) quieter side and found the bedroom worked well though with no A/C it did get too warm on our second night which adversely affected sleep quality.
Service in all aspects was at least Very Good
Overall feel is of staying in a top class hotel
Unique hotel with Swiss ambiance within minutes of Lake Louise. Great and welcoming staff. World famous wine cellar. Lovely rooms. Staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. Over three days the restaurant amazed us with the quality and variety of their food. You can’t go wrong staying here.
