Exceeded Expectations

Charlotte was very responsive through the entire planning process and made sure to check in on us day-of. She was also very accommodating with our pups being in the wedding party and making sure there was no food/drink in the room that would conflict with this.

We went with the cougar creek buffet and many of our guests commented on it being the best food they had had at a wedding. Keith, the head chef even stopped in to make sure everything met expectations. We had the poutin bar and pizza as a late night snack and it was amazing, no one could even tell we had requested vegitatian gravy.

Owen.C was our bartender and gave the best service we have ever experienced. Was very engaging with the guests and on top of what was going on, even providing estimates on bar tab upon request.

Some of the guests from the wedding next door started hanging out at our wedding and playing games. Since we had an open bar and they did not as soon as they started coming in Owen approached me to see if I wanted them to be able to order from our bar since it would end up on our bill. We did not. He was very observant and tactful the entire time while directing the other guests to their own bar and offering top tier service to our guests. My mom ordered a drink for one of the ladies she was talking with and he went as far as to ask her if the bride was okay with it. I've never seen someone offer so much care and consideration in their job.

Caleb, the manager, checked in multiple times. Seeing if we needed more food, making sure everything was going smoothly and made the day stress free with his attention to detail and amazing staff.

We have not got our professional photos back yet so enjoy some Polaroids from our guest book!

Wedding Reception

Our reception at Coast Hotel ended up being wonderful and all of our guests had a great time! Our coordinator was responsive through all stages of planning, and the day of staff were all incredibly friendly and happy to be there. Pricing was reasonable for Canmore pricing, and our wedding suite was romantic with bubbly, a special treat, and rose petals setup when we arrived. They also gave us a special treat for our dog which was appreciated.

Thank you for making our day special!

We had our wedding reception here last month at their restaurant, Table Food + Drink in their private room. It was such a good space for us, we all had a lot of fun there!
Charlotte helped us with the details and planning, she was very patient and went above and beyond to answer any and all questions. We had a set menu and everyone loved the food! The Banquet staff serving us including the Banquet Manager were so nice and patient, they served us all night and everything went without a hitch!
Special thanks again to Charlotte and The Banquet staff for going above and beyond to make our day special! Thank you!

A Great Reception Venue

We had a great wedding reception at the Coast Canmore. It was well priced and the food was delicious. We had a hiccup with the time slot we had for setting up decor and the staff there went out of there way to make sure that everything went smoothly! The venue looked great and the staff were kind and quick to reply to me. I would definitely recommend the venue.

Such a great experience overall!

We had a great experience hosting our wedding reception at the Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre. Our wedding coordinator Charlotte was easy to communicate with via email and super helpful during the final planning steps. The service team during the reception were all friendly and the entire night ran smoothly thanks to them. The hot canap茅s, appetizer, main course, and dessert was all so tasty! The poutine bar was also a huge hit among our guests. Would highly recommend booking at the Coast Coast Canmore Hotel & Conference Centre for your wedding reception!

Perfect Venue

We held our elopement dinner here with some close family and friends, and my husband and I were over the moon with the excellent service and delicious food. Communications with the coordinator leading up the event was often and informative and everything was laid out clearly. The private room at the table was a great size and had everything we needed. Thank you so much again!

Perfect reception space for our wedding!

We had booked with the coast a little over a year before our wedding, and we鈥檙e very pleased the day of! There had been a few minor hurdles as with any wedding day, but the team was quick to help us out. I felt taken care of by the catering team as they always checked in with me when I was walking around! Food was excellent and everyone raved especially about the salmon! The coordinator did a wonderful job communicating with me as they had changed teams halfway through our time with planning, and honoured multiple changes we had made to the contract. When finalizing our bill and giving our feedback the coast was eager to hear where they could grow as a team and look to best serve me in any way possible.

The only thing I will comment on and noticed made getting ready the day of the wedding a little difficult was the size of the rooms. Otherwise the hotel rooms were just what we needed.

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!
