    Amazing restaurants, great service & food

    We had amazing meals at the Fairmont restaurants. We went here after our wedding with a large group of family and it couldn't have been any better! Great service, drinks, food and views.

    Castle wedding

    The fairmont was a beautiful venue. I had to move my wedding once and they were very accommodating and professional. I wanted a wedding that didn’t require a lot of coordinating with different vendors and having it at the fairmont allowed for me to leave a lot of the little things to them. They have a fairly ridged structure however so if you have a particular vision be sure they can accommodate it as it is still an active hotel and tourist destination

    Gorgeous venue

    Married on the terrace outside with the most spectacular views and had our reception in the Ivor petrik room. I would recommend taking photos in the mt Stephen hall as it’s one of the most beautiful rooms I have ever seen. This whole hotel in general, inside and out is just breathtaking

    A Dream Come True

    I have wanted to have my wedding at the Banff Springs Hotel since I was five years old. It was a dream come true when we were able to book the Banff Springs as our venue. We were married on the Upper Terrace which was an absolutely stunning back drop to our ceremony. The food was perfect - it was without a doubt the best meal we’ve ever had at a wedding. But above all, the staff were so kind and accommodating to us and all our guest.

    So scrumptious

    We had afternoon tea at the Castle for our wedding reception. The food was absolutely amazing and there was ample and we had to get doggie bags to go as there was so much. Would recommend eating here for sure.

    Simply the best!

    The most gorgeous venue for a wedding there is! We just had issues with getting a hold of the person in-charge of catering a few times, but everything was sorted out. Services rendered were excellent.

    Amazing venue

    It’s expensive but worth it. The mountain view is breath taking. The food was amazing. Everything went mostly smooth. The rooms were incorrect but they fixed it for us. Although they said the outdoor terrace would be private and there was hotel guests outside taking pictures during our wedding and I wasn’t too happy about that.

    A Fairytale Wedding Venue

    Our dream wedding would not have been possible without this amazing venue for our reception. It was a fairy tale! The food was incredible, service impeccable in every way and it was so beautiful. I highly recommend it for your big day!
