Had a wonderful time in Banff and the Poplar Inn was a great place to stay. Susan was a wonderful hostess and made us feel at home. She had wonderful stories of her many trips around the world and shared many interesting recollections of her husband and family from past years. The breakfasts were terrific. My wife had the misfortune... More

WE are so glad that we discovered The Poplar Inn to stay at while in Banff. IT is a lovely place and Susan , the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfy and immaculately clean. WE enjoyed our 4 nights there immensely. The breakfasts were varied and tasty. Susan is a life long Banff resident... More

The Poplar Inn was a perfect bed and breakfast. Susan is a gracious, friendly and accommodating hostess, who shared much information about the area with us. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast chats with her. The two guest rooms and private baths for each are perfectly decorated and most comfortable. The common living room/kitchen area is fantastic for two couples traveling... More

We stayed at the Poplar Inn B&B this March when we were in town to visit a friend. Having everything at ground level was a great relief over the often experienced narrow stairwell luggage trial. The king bed was quite firm which was right up my alley. We slept great and loved the convenience of our own ensuite washroom. The... More

A warm, friendly B&B. Susan is a lovely hostess, with lots of fun & funny stories to share. Delisciously delightful breakfasts served in a relaxed dining area. Private bath & very comfortable King-sized bed!

Accommodation at the Poplar Inn is clean comfortable and clearly designed so that visitors can be as comfortable as possible. The rooms are comfortable with a small deck so you can sit out. The dining room has a small kitchen and one is welcome to bring back food and eat, this made a welcome break from restaurant meals. Susan is... More

We had both of the rooms in this house as we were traveling with my parents. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the common area had beautiful mountain views. We enjoyed a great breakfast each morning and Susan was sensitive to our gluten free needs. Great location too with just a short walk into town.

This is just the 2nd B & B we have stayed at, both in Canada, and we were very happy with the setup. It was chosen because of reviews on this website and the look of the house. Position - fantastic. Very comfortable and cosy. Susan made us some lovely pancakes in the morning with probably the best cup of... More

This was the start of our 3 week Canadian trip and the only accommodation we had booked to stay for as long as 4 nights in. When we arrived we were met by Bev & Dale who were looking after the B & B while the owner was away. They then explained that there was a problem and the room... More

I was told by Bev that I had over booked. It is something every person in this industry dreads. Once it has happened all we can do is try to make it better. Bev did give you the master suite which is bigger than the B&B and the price was cut in half because it was my mistake. We all... More
