Very friendly and helpful hosts with lots of tips about getting around town. We ended up just leaving our vehicle at the B&B and walking downtown for dinner. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was a basic make-your-own but enough of everything that we were happy.

The room and bathroom were clean, and everything worked. But the description does not make clear that parking is well below the rooms, down steep steps. It would be okay most of the time, but in ice or snow, or for less-agile people could be an issue. Breakfast was a do it yourself project, with good ingredients, but we had... More

Thanks so much for the feedback Ruth. I've not received feedback before regarding the stairs to the patio you mentioned that are double wide, but I will definitely keep it in mind with guests that are not so agile in future, aways happy to help with bags etc. The B&B is closed in the winter. Wishing you all the best... More

My wife and I had the pleasure to stay in Mountain View B&B for two nights. First of all, our host - Edwina- was very flexible in terms of booking and check-in time. She didn't charge us in advance and accepted our earlier check-in. This B&B is perfectly located in a quite and beautiful neighborhood and still close to the... More

We arrived in Banff without a booking and were sent here by the Tourist Office. The B&B was in an excellent location, just a few short blocks from the centre of town and hosts Edwina and Kevan were very friendly and helpful. We had a small comfortable queen room with ensuite bathroom and the use of a common sitting room... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights. Edwina, the hostess, was very helpful and accommodating. The B & B was very clean and neat and the continental breakfast was a treat considering the price of meals as well as groceries in Banff. The location is also great. We would definitely stay at again and try and book well enough... More

My husband and I stayed at the Banff MOUNTAIN VIEW B&B during the 1st week of September 2013. The room was small but clean with a Queen bed, sink and shared bathroom. We decided to stay for 4 days as the house had a nice patio and garden. It also was convenient located close to the centre of town. The... More

Dear Sir/Madam, I am so pleased that you enjoyed some aspects of your stay in September, it's our most beautiful month in the rockies. I do apologize if the fruit basket was not stocked. I stock it daily but guests help themselves so I will make sure to check it more often in future. With regard to the breakfast offerings... More

The location of this place is very good and is only a short stroll to the nearby town centre. The rooms are clean and we had a decent private bathroom as well. The walls are extremely thin however and the noise from the owners above was very loud which made us worry about whether we would get a good nights... More

The place was tidy, but it felt more like a hostel than a welcoming B&B. The sign stuck on the wall in the kitchen telling everyone to clean up after themselves "because other people have to use these facilities as well" made us feel like we were in a student dorm and the walls were thin, so we could hear...

This b&b is a nice tidy place that felt homey with a very nice hostess. Although the stay was fine with no particular problems we thought it to be no more than average - breakfast was poor (no yogurts cheeses or egs just bread fruits and cereals - although we have to admit that we don't know what's customery in...

We stayed at Mountain View B&B in august for 3 nights. The bedroom was small but clean, comfortable and quiet. The communal living/kitchen area was great as it gave you space to spread out and relax the use of the free internet was very nice as well. Sharing a bathroom was no problem and taking care of your own breakfast... More
