This was our first experience staying in a B&B. We arrived late into Calgary and by the time we got our rental car and navigation issues sorted we arrived late into Banff. A call to April to let her know we were on our way but wouldn't arrive till about 9.30 pm was met with no issues. Was a pleasant... More

This is a great location just 5 minutes from the town centre with off-road parking. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Our bathroom had his and hers washbasins and a bath/shower. There is a large guest lounge/kitchen/dining area. This has a microwave and hot/cold water machine, but no oven or kettle. There is no sink, but dirty dishes and cutlery are... More

I was in Banff on business and was looking for a place to stay close to my conference at the Fairmont. Wits End was about 1/4 the price of the Fairmont. Not as fancy, but definetly quiter and more laid back. My room had everything I needed: queen bed, bathroom, TV and wifi. Nothing fancy, but it met my needs.... More

We planned on spending a couple of nights in Banff on our recent visit to Alberta and chose At Wit's End as our base while there. April had contacted us with a map to the location but it was very easy to find and in a great spot. We walked downtown, to the Banff Springs Hotel, and to the scenic... More

We stayed as a couple late June and were fortunate we were the only ones there at the time. April is a warm and accomodating host who supplies a substantial breakfast. Off street parking was ideal as we were able to leave the car and walk across the bridge to Banff central. Accomodation was clean and comfortable, certainly not luxurious... More

Great location. Could walk to the town very easily. Breakfast was fabulous. The room was simple but very clean and the bathroom was also clean with two sinks. Nice added bonus of a television in the room and a sitting area for all of the guests.

We stayed for three nights near the end of our rocky mountains section of our Canada trip. The position of our accommodation was excellent, a short walk into town either across the foot bridge or the road bridge. April the hostess was efficient and told us what to do where to go to eat etc. The breakfasts were good and... More

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

We stayed At Wit's End for 4 days in July 2015. They have off street parking for guests (a big deal in crowded Banff ) There are three bedrooms in the lower level for guests. 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
