The Mount Royal Hotel established itself over 100 years ago and took prime location in the centre of Banff. It’s a great place to explore the town as the shops and bars of Banff are on its doorstep with the ski shuttle bus stop just outside. Contemporary and luxury, Mount Royal Hotel is the ideal accommodation for anyone in search of that perfect ski holiday in Banff.

All 135 rooms are made up to meticulous detail, offering fantastic value for money and you’ll experience smiles all round with cheerful Canadian hospitality from the friendly staff.  Discover a distinctly Banff dining experience at Brazen a restaurant inspired by the trailblazers that defined Banff with a diverse menu of snacks, small plates and large plates, plus contemporary takes on classic cocktails. Or, if you’re in the mood to sip a craft beer or a glass of wine while sharing a charcuterie board, stop by the Cascade Lounge and unwind among mountain views.
