We stayed at this location our entire Christmas holiday which was an excellent choice.
The staff were amazing and the rooms were comfortable. We chose to have a mountain view room which was exactly as it is described as. The price was very reasonable for the Christmas holidays.
This hotel is in walking distance to the hot pools and gondala which was very handy.
The local bus came regularly to take you for a 5-10 min ride into town which was free otherwise the staff made regular complimentary runs into town if booked. The location of the hotel just made it feel that much more special as you felt remote without being too far from the town and the hotel was not too large so interactions with the staff felt very personable.
Santa made a visit on Christmas morning and it was very festive on Christmas Day especially. With a special festive cupcake delivered to our room on Christmas Eve.
The days leading into Christmas there was a skating rink prepared in the court yard area which was an added bonus.
We had breakfast at their restaurant every morning as the food was amazing. They had a high quality buffet every second night over Christmas which we had on numerous occasions at reasonable price.
I would definitely stay here again and am missing the buffet dinners.

The Rimrock is a gem -- a beautiful setting, lovely and clean hotel, fantastic staff, and a phenomenal breakfast. We truly felt like we were on vacation. Given the quality of the property and the service, we felt the rates were reasonable and an extremely good value. We would return to Banff just to stay at the Rimrock again.
