Simple basic and kinda poky overall. The renovations have been done on the cheap. You get what you pay for. My room was tiny and quite difficult to move around in. Banff is expensive and this is no exception. Very friendly owner and staff. Welcoming and looking to make sure you have a good time and stay. Very knowledgable on... More

Booked off the internet on our way to Banff. On arrival, we were very apprehensive about it being a "B and B" as that is not our preferred accommodation when travelling. Walking in to check in, still feeling a bit apprehensive about being in "someone's house". Checking in was a breeze with everything explained to us clearly by a lovely... More

We needed an extra day in Banff and a place for the night. Blue Mountain was kindly suggested by the information centre based on our needs for a budget B and B as compared to where we had previously stayed. This location is very close to downtown for those that need access. However on weekends, Banff is very busy and... More

At first I thought that I was going to kill myself by looking at the pictures but it is way better then expected. The beds are quite comfortable, most rooms include a LED TV (Around 28") and the washrooms are about average. The breakfast was great (Toast, Cereal, Muffins and more) the cookies were good as well. The cowboy suite... More

Do not stay here. The rooms are small, the walls are paper thin, the towels are THREADBARE, the bathrooms pathetic, the bedding terrible, the wifi non-existent. The bed was uncomfortable and the bathroom was tiny, old and grimy. We spent our night listening to drunken young guests banging around above us at 230am. A complete rip-off.

We stayed here for almost 2 months in November and December 2014 and felt right at home. The lodge has adorable small town charm with cute quilted duvets and timber paneled ceilings. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and willing to go the extra mile for guests, including making beautiful fresh breakfasts and cookies for afternoon tea. Definitely make... More

Great place to stay when you want to spend your money more than just accomadations. Very quaint and hopitable in a perfect location. Breakfast was excellent. Only thing that I did not like was the weak wifi signal coming to our room on the second floor.

We spent 3 nights and were in the 'Prospectors Room'. The room itself is cosy: once our two suitcases were on the floor it was a little tight, and the bathroom is little. But we knew this from the website information, and it was absolutely fine. The location is great: easy one block stroll to everything on Banff Avenue. We... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the lodge for a couple of weeks when we first arrived in Banff, before finding a place to live for the season and didn't want to leave! The staff there are super friendly, and will go out of their way to be helpful, offering advice on anything you can think to ask about! Our... More

Every time I come to Banff, I stay here. This is not a five star hotel, but a simple, quaint lodge run by some great staff. It's clean, cozy, comfortable and at a great price. I always find that this is the best way to travel. Kudos to the staff - keep up the great work!
