Rundle Lounge - Afternoon Tea - Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel
All About the ExperienceI took my in-laws here and we had a wonderful time. Though there's a wide assortment of delicious food, there isn't much of it, so don't come too hungry (especially if you're a health nut).
It's a wonderful place to gather with a spectacular view. We had some great conversation and everyone was very relaxed by the beauty and comfort of the surroundings.
I also saw several (very well-behaved) children milling about, so it appears to be very family friendly.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMScenic View for a special dayVery delicious treats with about 10 different types of teas to try!
Just note they did not provide Devonshire cream which I have had at the Fairmont Empress in Victoria, but a nice whipping cream.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAfternoon tea at the Banff SpringsDelicious dainty sandwiches and sweets plus scones with strawberry jam and cream while overlooking the Bow Valley and Rockies mountains. our server was very knowledgeable about the 14 teas we could choose to sample, describing contents, origin and gave us the opportunity of smelling each one before we selected which ones to try.
Very quiet and restful ambience, it was great to actually talk to each other.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful!I took my mother to the Afternoon Tea at the Banff Springs, and it was FANTASTIC. The food was wonderful (delicious baked goods and small sandwiches- perfect with a pot of tea!) and the choice of teas was excellent. Beautiful view, also! Would definitely go again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty but PriceyA lovely setting with great views of the mountains. A good selection of teas with explanation from the server. Loved the scones with cream and jam. Would have preferred either a few more sandwiches and a few less desserts or a few desserts that were lighter and less sweet - it was a bit of a sugar overload! Also, the advertised price on the reservations page was $30 so we were dismayed at the bill which listed $42 per person. The water was also extra - it was a nice experience but not worth nearly a hundred dollars for two people.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
