How refreshing to find this hotel that has a smart room lay-out that actually is made for a couple. A table with (count'em) two chairs so we could play cards instead of vegetate in front of the t.v. They definitely provide superior comfort, quality & service in every way. Thought we would only be getting a continental breakfast in the... More

Fabulous hotel in Blairmore! It is very new, has a great decor and rooms are large. We had a double room (2 queen beds) with a small kitchenette. The bathroom was a little tight but nothing too bad. Would totally recommend this hotel and for small town Alberta - it was excellent! We missed the complimentary breakfast and the GM... More

Just stayed at the all new Kanata hotel in Blairmore. This is a brand new hotel and the rooms and staff are excellent. Would highly recommend and will stay again in the future. The breakfast is your standard continental breakfast but the service exceeds others.

My husband and I spent Christmas time at this hotel because we have family out in Blairmore.

This appears to be a new hotel, or newly renovated. Doors open with swiping your key, nice feature. Nice keurig coffee, microwave in room. Comfy bed and pillows. Flat screen tv. Front staff is very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.
