We stayed At Wit's End for two nights at the end of June. The entire basement of April's house is guest rooms. Normally we don't look twice at basement rooms, but took a chance based on a recommendation and good TripAdvisor reviews. We had a queen bedroom at the back of the house. It has a huge window. You'd never... More

A common room for dining, sitting by the fire, and conversation about what hike to do next. The biggest room is the one with 2... More

What an absolute delight! April is a stellar host providing a safe and clean "home away from home". The location of this B&B really can't be beat. It's so close to town but also to so many destinations within Banff and surrounding areas. We had everything we needed and more from available snacks to lotion in the bathroom. Oh, did... More

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.
