    Very Accommodating

    We had an outdoor ceremony at the Nordic Centre in July '22, and then the reception at the Coast Hotel in Canmore.
    Manon (at the Coast) was super helpful and really made all the pre-planning go well. The ballroom looked absolutely gorgeous when we got there the day before, and we were allowed to set up all of our own decor (centerpieces, garlands, etc.) the night before, so that was a HUGE stress reliever! The only problems occurred during the reception and dinner; the timing of things was not great. The hors d'oeuvres were about 30 min. late, and when the DJ announced the cake cutting, nobody brought the cake out, so I had to go to the kitchen and ask for it. The hors d'oeuvres and buffet were very delicious, however, and the whole atmosphere was just wonderful! The bar manager was very helpful with the wine that we supplied, and the bar tab ended up being lower than I thought, which was a nice surprise! Our room was super nice, and the hotel staff also very friendly. I would definitely recommend the Coast to anyone wanting a wonderful ballroom reception!

    Amazing venue & great experience

    We had a small wedding in Canmore. Working with Manon to plan our special day was very easy! She helped us get everything done, and was very flexible with us! The food was great & the ballroom was amazing. Catering staff also did a great job to make sure we had everything we needed and more. Very affordable solution for a small wedding in the mountains and we did not sacrifice any quality!

    Gosh Cheyenne, we are blushing. Thank you so much for this lovely review! It was a blast hosting you and Marco for your special day! Wishing you both the best.

    Had our wedding in July.

    We had our wedding July 29. The planner was professional and responsive. The day of the event, the kitchen staff were okay at best. The food tasted good but it wasn't hot. They took over an 1.5 to cut the cake which was unfortunate because hurts already left. Had to tell them to bring.the other dessert out which also took a long time. Tables took a long time to get cleared. The bar tender was unprofessional. Wasn't knowledgeable about drinks and couldn't do simple math to add up drinks. Carpet in the ballroom was dirty . The rooms guest stayed in and lobby are nice and clean.

    Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre's reply:

    Dear Ainsley,
    We were shocked to read your review given you had indicated to us directly you were happy with everything. We pride ourselves on delivering quality food and service and we are sorry we didn't meet your expectations. Wishing you all the best for the future.
    Warm Regards, The Coast Wedding Team

    Outstanding!

    We had our ceremony and reception here. It was such a pleasure working with Laise and all the staff involved throughout our wedding! My guests really enjoyed the food, the gentlemen working the bar were great, and the front desk folks were very accommodating. They went above and beyond by providing two ballrooms for us to set up the day before. So there was no worrying about having to switch the rooms around midway through the day. We had a wonderful wedding at the Coast, highly recommend!

    To all the COVID brides on a budget, this is the place!

    Hi Louise,

    Our wedding was amazing!

    Our wedding was amazing and a lot of it was thanks to the awesome staff at the Coast Canmore. Everyone was so professional and helpful and prices were very reasonable.

    Jessica and Misty were great and made sure everything went off without a hitch. They responded to all of my questions and comments and made sure I was at ease throughout the planning process. The weekend of our wedding, they were able to accommodate storage for our decorations and cake and made sure everything looked beautiful. They also had the option of a backup indoor ceremony space for our outdoor wedding (we didn鈥檛 have to use it) which really put our minds at ease when the forecast called for rain.

    The best part of having our wedding here was the food! The chef is absolutely incredible and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. Even if you don鈥檛 have your wedding here, you should eat at the restaurant in the Coast Canmore at least once. So good!

    The space itself was nice and although the carpets and curtains weren鈥檛 quite in our colour scheme, a bit of up-lighting and dimming the chandeliers made the ballroom look absolutely stunning.

    I would definitely recommend the Coast Canmore and can鈥檛 thank them enough for making our day so memorable.

    Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre's reply:

    Hi Sydney,
    It was great to work with you on making your big day special! I'm so happy to hear that everything went off without a hitch, and that the food was just as enjoyable. The kitchen staff work so hard on creating tasty dishes for our guests, I have passed your kind review along to the rest of our departments. We wish you a lifetime of happiness in your new chapter!
    Kind Regards,

    Excellent Place for a Cermony and Reception

    We recently had our ceremony and reception at the Coast Canmore and it was prefect! Christian and all the other staff were so accommodating and helpful to make our day exactly what we wanted. Christian was super easy to arrange the venue with and put all my worries at ease with every conversation!

    Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre's reply:

    Dear Shonna and Jessie,
    It was a pleasure working with both of you! Your calm dispositions and great attitudes went a long way in ensuring a lovely wedding event.
    Wishing you both all of the best on behalf of the Coast Canmore. Hopefully we can welcome you back next year for your anniversary!
