This is a very old house but owner has done her best to keep it as much updated as possible. In the B&B - you are served breakfast in the room. Hence, you are not at liberty of how much u want to eat and what. I would have preferred help yourself stuff. If u are having a sharing bathroom... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June There are a total of 8 rooms in this B&B and we stayed in room #5. There are two twin beds, a table, mini fridge, and sink in the room. Washroom and shower are shared between the upstairs guests I believe. We expected to have issues with timing the washrooms in the... More

The B&B is run by a formidable 80 something lady full of beans and energy. There is a funny smell as you enter the B&B but my room was fine. I had the room on the ground floor right at the back of the house, which I believe is newer than the rest of the house. The room was minuscule... More

On a whim I travelled to USA & Canada from Australia & found booking accommodation easy until I tried to find somewhere in Banff with 48hrs notice! Mrs Cowan saved the day; her B&B is fantastic value.

If you want to be charmed with old world style and service by Mrs C. look no further (she's a sprightly 80 odd years young, opening her home to welcome guests. My husband and I stayed in a large clean room ( two small double beds), a shared bathroom with other guests that didn't bother us. Hot toast, croissant and... More

I stayed for 5 nights. The room was a good size for 1 adult, there was a mini fridge and a hand basin in the room. Mrs Cowan the owner is very polite and easy to talk to. The B&B is only a short walk to the centre of Banff and also very close to the local trail heads in... More

If your not looking for much but a place to stay and lay your head down then this is it. Great value compared to everything else in Banff. The room was cozy and comfortable but a little crowded with the table and chairs where you eat a nice breakfast. The restrooms/showers being down the hall was never a problem. The... More

I spent some days in Canada and I love their b&b, but this one was absolutely the worst because of the very snob owner and the condition of house. I didn't sleep all night because of noisy of the old fridge and air system that worked all night. The room was little and datated, but clean. There wasn't a breakfast... More

While other B&B's have been more luxurious, this was was fairly decent for the price. The rooms were clean, the host was nice, and the breakfast was okay (croissant, tea, jam). Whiles the bathrooms are shared, they were clean. The location is very good (few minutes from the main street). Definitely worth staying at if looking for good value for... More
