We stayed at Bonaventure for two nights and very much enjoyed it. Pat and Bruce were friendly hosts and were very accommodating, especially with our late night arrival and flexible breakfast time. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable and located in a quiet neighbourhood. The hot breakfasts were fantastic (my boyfriend particularly commends the sausages) with a great selection...

We spent 3 nights at this well appointed B&B. We enjoyed a lovely full breakfast each morning with a menu that varied daily. Our hosts were very interesting and knowledgeable. When we mentioned that we were artists, it was suggested that we visit the Leighton Art Centre. An excellent choice. Pat and Bruce were well travelled and kindred spirits. We... More

Stayed here for two nights and this place is great. The accommodation is in a fully self contained area downstairs and is nicely furnished and very comfortable. Breakfast upstairs with Pat and Bruce is a very family affair with good food and interesting conversation. Location is in a very nice neighbourhood and access to downtown is easy. A large shopping...

The B&B is comfortable with everything we needed: convenient to our south Calgary destinations; sitting room for reading or watching TV; convenient washroom; and pleasant bedroom. What makes this a great, as opposed to good destination is the hosts. The pleasant conversations around the breakfast bar with Pat and Bruce were easily the best part of our trip west. I... More

A contemporary home located in an established quiet neighbourhood just minutes to McLeod Trail, and shopping, business and transportation routes. Sitting around the kitchen island, my wife and I enjoyed pleasant breakfasts with Pat & Bruce including some lengthly converstations about international travels.

Bonaventure is a lovely B&B made perfect by the wonderful hosts, Pat and Bruce. They are so helpful. The twin room is small but functional and the bathroom and living room have everything you need (fridge, kettle, microwave, TV).
