Down stairs to comfortable room, our own bathroom, shared kitchen/lounge area. Lovely breakfast. Wi-fi. April very welcoming and looked after us a treat. Even had an umbrella if we needed it!. Easy walking distance to town, enjoy a lovely meal and stroll home.

This B & B has an excellent location within easy walking distance of the town centre. We were pleased with our room which had plenty of storage space and a good sized en suite. We had access to tea/coffee making facilities & free snacks & cold drinks were provided. April was a very good host and the breakfasts were fantastic,... More

We stayed at this B&B based on TA reviews and were disappointed. The room, aside from the bathroom was full of dust..if you pulled the slat blinds it was caked on as was the bulb in the bedside lamp. April was very friendly and helpful. I don't fault her on 'her' take on a b&b but, we have stayed in... More

As I do everything I can to make all my customers stay an exceptional value... I am glad you enjoyed your breakfast, but very sad to hear other comments. 1. I do apologize for the "dust" in the room. All surfaces were cleaned the day before, including the blinds. Your stay happened to be while the trees in Banff are... More

This place is located walking distance to downtown and bow river falls and is about a 5 minute ride to the gondola and the hot springs. My room was clean and spacious and no other guests were there at the time, so I had a very quiet stay. Breakfast was amazing, and had a variety of food items. The kitchenette... More

Very clean and comfortable. April makes every effort and succeeds. She provides a very nice breakfast and the rooms come already stocked with useful items. There is a nice sitting area with a gas fireplace that is very welcome in cold weather.

At wits end was a fantastic find, the food was lovely with different dishes every day, April was very helpful and attentive to everything which made my stay very enjoyable, everywhere was spotlessly clean which for me was very big on the plus side of things. I hope to return in the summer with my husband.

Wow, the breakfasts are beyond scrumptious! Our room (at end of the hall) was very spacious, and everything was super clean. The kitchen area had all kinds of teas and snacks. Host April Wood gave excellent suggestions for hiking in the area. April and her husband Peter are both wonderful, friendly, and helpful hosts. We enjoyed talking with Peter about... More

What a find. At Wit's End was everything we want in accommodation. Great location, just a short, scenic walk into town, off street parking, spotlessly clean rooms and we met some very friendly fellow travellers staying there, too. There is an outside garden area and patio for relaxing in. And of course this is all possible because of the owner,... More
