Lonely Planet review
The Bow View is a workaday Banff option – older than most of the attractive log inns that line Banff Ave, but neat and tidy all the same. Without any surcharge you can use the fitness facilities and pool in the huge Banff Park Lodge next door.
Our independent authors have visited Bow View Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Banff Town.
