Celebrating a birthday at the Banff Springs hotel and this was the icing on the cake. Everything was yummy and the view was spectacular - we were seated right by the window. A wonderful experience and a great way to end our visit.

We attended Afternoon Tea at the Rundle Hall. It was a lovely time. The meal was designed by Chef Darren McGrady, who has served Queen Elizabeth II. It was delicious! Our server, Samantha, was a lovely girl. She was very friendly.
It was disappointing that we were unable to change teas without a $6 surcharge, as other Fairmont's do not charge for changes.

My friends and I had a wonderful time! The service was fantastic, the food was delicious and lots of varieties to try! The tea selection was impressive and delicious! We will defenitely come back again! Have to give a huge thumbs up to the chefs for being able to cater to my gluten free friend so well! She never felt as if she was missing out, and thoroughly enjoyed her experience as well. Thanks for a fabulous afternoon!

We went for a mother/daughters high tea and all three of us loved every aspect of it. Our waitress was lovely, very attentive and personable. The food was excellent and unique. The view of the mountains and valley was stunning. The locale in the Banff Springs was second to none. Highly recommended in all ways!!!!!

My grandson and I enjoyed our afternoon tea. The food was delicious! The view out the window of the Rundle lounge was beautiful. The staff was friendly and attentive.
We look forward to returning sometime soon to enjoy another special occasion.

a beautiful experience: royal afternoon tea. the view is stunning and the service was lovely. the only only thing i would personally change for myself would be to ask if it was possible to have more of the mini sandwiches and less cakes and sweets - the desserts were beautiful. it i can't consume that many sweets in one sitting. it was fine, the server packed them very nicely for me to take away.
this was truly a lovely experience!

We had a great time (we were actually the last to leave...). We ordered a bottle of Prosecco but our hostess forgot to bring it. After reminding her about the order, she brought 4 glasses filled with the wine and the bottle. I feel the bottle should have been opened at our table, not at the bar and our glasses filled at this point. I don't think we drank as much tea since we had the wine and it came after our teas were served.
The food was very tasty and the desserts were all great.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Royal Champagne Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel on October 11, 2016. The presentation was perfect, the food delicious and our server was delightful ! The little cakes and other dainties were almost too lovely looking to eat- almost! There was a terrific variety of tea sandwiches with creative fillings. Everything added to the specialness of the day; my 65th birthday ! We would definitely recommend this event to anyone who enjoys being spoiled ...

We have visited the Rundle Lounge for Afternoon Tea several times. And, we have enjoyed each visit. We particularly enjoyed this visit because we were able to have the "Royal Tea" commemorating the recent royal visit to Canada. Everything was very well presented and the royal connection to each sandwich and cake was well explained.

I was visiting my son in Calgary from my home in Nova Scotia, and wanted to offer him a special occasion that we would both remember. The Afternoon Tea was that and more. Wonderful ambiance, the most attentive and friendly service, and the food and tea offerings were lovely. Thank you so much!

I reserved afternoon tea for my daughter and I to celebrate her 13th birthday. We were treated with such kindness, from making accommodations for a food allergy, to being seated at a table by the windows so we could see the beautiful view. The nicest treat was when the waitress brought out a special piece of dark chocolate cake for my daughter. She felt so special and important, which was the whole point of bringing her to tea.
Our waitress was lovely and kind and very attentive. She knew the story behind each of the sandwiches and desserts.
The food was simply amazing. I will forever remember the roast beef sandwich and my daughter will remember the tomato and sage cheese bun. It was all very delicious and decadent.
Having afternoon tea in the Rundle Lounge with my daughter truly was a highlight for me and a memory that will be with my precious daughter forever.
Thank you so very much. We will definitely be back.

First the atmosphere, scenery, environment, decor etc etc is like no where else. Such a gorgeous place!
Food was very good. The first course of fruit was lacking, it was barely a spoon full of diced berries and ours was missing the curl of dark chocolate that others had. I would definitely improve on this being that it's such a fancy establishment - kind of silly. Otherwise the food was delishious! I had the vanilla orchid tea and it was very very good
The gals were slightly under staffed and some of our party was very late so we were waiting. The good took quite a while to come out between courses but I believe high tea is meant to be enjoyed with long conversation so no issues here! Would recommend it for sure ( bring your wallet 😬)

I was actually thrilled to be spending my birthday at the fairmont banff and experience the afternoon tea with the breathtaking view, I requested that I wanted the mountain view because it was my birthday.
They did grant my request,but I was disappointed with our server,she was a bit dull to begin with and she didn't even ask me whats the occasion . Which actually that day was my birthday. Thank God for the good food and the overall stay at the hotel was great. Except for this,Im really quite disappointed. Now, my friends are asking me "how was the afternoon tea at fairmont banff springs" I was not that thrilled anymore to be sharing my experience, maybe I just had a dull server,who can't even smile.

The Sandwhiches and desserts were delicious, but you are no longer allowed to change the flavor of tea that you have; which seems outragious considering how much you are paying for the experience. We defenetly did not enjoy it as much as last time.

Beautiful views with excellent service. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. I liked that the typical afternoon tea fare had it's own little spin (i.e., the smoked salmon quiche was excellent). We were there for 2 1/2 hours and didn't feel rushed at all.

Two women with infants came in immediately after us. I paid what I did for an elegant, quiet, very special time. It wasn't. The servers were very nice and the food was very good. But elegant? Refined? Quiet? Special? No. If the possibility exists for that to happen to you, don't make the reservation there. There are plenty of other places in the same hotel to get what you want.

Stunning scenery from the rundle lounge, very friendly staff, attentive and informative waitress with an excellent choice of teas. Afternoon tea served in separate courses - eg sandwiches first, then scones and lastly, pastries, nicely presented and very good quality. If I had to choose I would prefer everything to be served together in what I consider a more traditional afternoon tea but nevertheless a very enjoyable afternoon in a setting few could rival.

Great views from the Rundle lounge and a cool experience to have fancy afternoon tea with beautiful finger foods for sampling. So much food we couldn't finish the desserts and opted to pack them up. We will keep this in mind for special occasions in the future.
