My wife, daughter & I had an EXTRAORDINARY stay for 1 week (end of Feb into March 2015). Dianne & Merril provided all the comforts of home PLUS more.... Exceptional value, views, location for us (close to University of Calgary) & tremendous breakfasts over our entire stay. Better than a 5-star hotel (by far) & at an exceptional value for... More

We have stayed at this BnB many times and absolutely love it. The people are no less than amazing and the rooms are unique, comfortable and clean. They have an incredible view of the river and serve a delicious breakfast. Definitely don't pass up this place!

Great value for money! The royal queen room comes with all the luxury you can imagine and more. The jacuzzi and steam shower are all you need after a day in the city! Great romantic spot and bus 1 stops close-by and takes you downtown in 20 minutes.

We have stayed at ARR many times over the years, and always look forward to our visit. The two upper floor rooms are spacious, with all the amenities, including a gas fireplace that turns the room toasty in minutes no matter what the temperature outside (-16C on our recent stay). We slept well, as a brand new mattress had just... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this Bed and Breakfast during a recent trip to Calgary. We feel it didn’t live up to the hype which is spruiked on the website. It was okay, but not fantastic. I found the bed to be soft and I slept well. My boyfriend prefers a firmer mattress and did not sleep too well.... More

We regret you did not have a fantastic stay at Along River Ridge B & B. We are really not sure if you have our B & B mixed up with another. We should recognize your name & also your photo that was presented to you at breakfast. We say this because - our guests always comment on our beautiful... More

This as been our second stay . It is perfect for us as we take the 2 lower level rooms and have the floor to ourselves. We have direct access to the back garden overlooking the Bow River and receive our friends in the living room with pool table. We feel at home with Merill and Diane. They make a... More

Our experience at this B&B was absolutely amazing! My family and I have just completed a coast to coast tour of Canada and stayed at 40+ different B&B’s. Along River Ridge is counted among our favourites and the best B&B we stayed at in that price range. It was the finer touches at Along River Ridge that placed them a... More

Prior to arriving at this B&B we had our car hire company cancel our hire vehicle and we had to change company (and the drop off place from Calgary to Banff). This was five days before our stay at Along River Ridge B&B. I emailed the owners that evening on the email address I had booked the room with to... More

This is a shocking review.It is the exact opposite to what our B&B & us as hosts & numerous other quests reviews represent. On check -in this person was very upset with how her car rental co. had treated her--exchange of car + location.--great increase in fee.We received NO cancellation from her (we have numerous contracts + a toll-free #)...

1st night of a 3 week trip across Canada and we could not have had a better start, the owners were very helpful with local information and the room was superb, breakfast was excellent and lots of it, we could not fault this B & B and would recommend anyone to stay there.

We spent a couple of nights here and honestly didn't want to leave. The hosts, delightful local couple Dianne & Merril, were really friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Merril even drove us into town to a meeting we had come to Calgary for. The room was huge with a fabulous spa bath and a really comfortable bed. But... More
