Set a 10-minute walk from downtown, Banff Caribou Lodge & Spa is a mountain lodge hotel with log and stone architecture and a cosy feel. Inside, the rustic look continues with a tall stone fireplace, chunky wood coffee tables and timber-beamed ceilings in the lobby. The resort has one of the largest spas in the area (complete with six treatment rooms, a hot tub and a steam room), a compact fitness room and the well-respected Keg restaurant has a lengthy steak menu.

The big plus here is the free facilities, which include heated indoor car parking, Wi-Fi access and morning tea and coffee in the lobby. Guests can also request free passes for the local Roam buses, which will take you into the centre of Banff.

Renovated in 2011, rooms are simple mountain retreats that overlook either the hotel courtyard or the surrounding landscape. The furniture is rustic wood, and beds are made up with fluffy duvets and colourful cushions. Most rooms aren't huge, but some have balconies. Upgrade to a suite for more space, a Jacuzzi bath and a gas fireplace.

Located in the Banff National Park, there's plenty to do all year round. Take the Banff Gondola up to the top of Sulphur Mountain for mountain views and access to the South East Ridge Trail. In the winter, spend the day on the slopes at Norquay (a ski resort five minutes' drive from Banff), and during the summer, try your hand at canoeing on Bow River.

Couples massage was well worth it!

Rooms are a bit small. Hot tub and steam were excellent. Fitness facilities were very small. Couldn’t get on the elliptical because my head hit the ceiling!
