The photos on the web site are attractive, bright and cheerful...but would not stay here again: Room dirty check photo for what I wiped up after checking in. No elevator, have to carry suitcases up three flights of stairs Didn't use fire place, had hard time breathing because room had strong smokehouse odor. Kept my suitcase zipped so all my... More

My boyfriend and I stay there each year for me to run the Banff Marathon. It is a quaint old home kept up well. The staff are very personable and always aim to please. The breakfast is good with boiled eggs, toast, cereal, fresh warm croissants, yogurt, homemade muffins, fresh fruit, several juices, milk, coffee, and tea. In the afternoon... More

the staff here couldn't be more helpful giving us many suggestions of things to do and see, booking a restaurant for us and even lending us bear spray! The rooms are very small as is the breakfast area, also very hot at night but for the second night we requested fans which helped a lot. Great position an easy short... More

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.
