2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The reason for the poor rating was that our reservation made in Feb was changed a few days before we were to arrive and we were bumped to Charltons with no explanation. That is not the hotel that we picked out of all the places that we could have chosen in Banff. The only good thing about Charltons was the room which was lovely. Overall very disappointed with how we were treated.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was clean with nice public areas. However, the dining was limited and the food not the best quality, for example, the vegetables were raw and the steak over cooked. Also, the sheets on the bed didn't fit and weren't large enough to tuck in which was uncomfortable. Overall though the hotel was fine.
