A lot of smoke and mirrors. The summer suite is advertised as an en-suite bath with luxury toiletries, thick towels but actually only has a shower and grocery store toiletries, and normal hotel towels. If I had known there was no bath, I would not have booked. The room is so small there is no where for your suitcase except... More

My wife joined me for my second night at River Lee and didn't believe my rave reviews of Diane's breakfast, until she ate it the next morning. A gourmet breakfast that allowed for (and asked for) any dislikes/intolerances in food. Great accommodation steps from the heart of Kensington with all the food and beverage establishments one could hope for. Gourmet,... More

Deanne and Diane could not do more to make us feel welcome at this friendly b&b. There were fresh muffins, fruit and juice in our room on arrival. They helped us with directions, suggested things to do around the city, even provided a walking tour map which was very useful on our first day. The best part of our stay... More

Beautiful heritage house with lovely details throughout the house. I love the silk kimono and the garden. We had no problem getting to and from the Stampede grounds with public transit. There were lots of places to eat within walking distance. I think we reserved with Deanne and met Diane once we arrived. All communications went smoothly. They were both... More

The girls running this BnB, and the next door River Wynde, are very friendly people. Make you feel at home, can give you good tips on how to get around and what to do in Calgary (and offer free laundry service). We stayed in the Spring room, which felt a bit cramped (we had quite a lot of luggage). It's... More

My husband and I visit Calgary on roughly a bi-weekly basis and often book hotels. We decided to go out on a limb and try something new and it definitely worked out to our advantage! The River Lee Executive B&B had a great location, as it was walking distance from many trendy shops, pubs and restaurants. They had FREE parking... More

We have stayed at both River Lee and River Wynde for couple of times (4 times since 2006, 3 times in River Lee and one in River Wynde) and it's one of the main reasons we visit Calgary. Diane and Deanne are the warmest and nicest hosts we've ever met and they both create a very welcoming environment for all... More

Our family (2 adults, 2 kids under 5) stayed here on a short 3-day trip to Calgary. Our suite occupied the entire top floor with its own bathroom. Even with the foldout bed open the entire time, there was plenty of room. Breakfasts were to-die for. We easily explored the neighbourhood (fantastic) and city (downtown and the Zoo) without a...

The River Lee was the best surprise of our trip. Diana and De were the best hosts I have ever run into at a B&B. Diana's gourmet breakfasts were out of this world and here muffins are to die for. The outdoor patio is a beautiful space where we had our breakfasts. The two houses are located in a wonderful... More

After a recommendation from a friend we decided to have our first B&B stay ever. It was lovely. The house itself is very clean and well decorated. Our rooms were cozy and the beds had fantastic linen. Bathrooms stocked with plenty of towels and your choice of luxury ammentites. Breakfast each day was amazing. This is not typical hotel breakfast... More
