We actually stayed in this establishment much earlier than is listed. We found the house filthy and unkempt. Ashtrays were over-flowing and beer bottles abounded. The shower did not work in the communal bathroom and the drain in another private room was plugged. The owner was drunk and disheveled. The female staff was more interested in getting under a blanket... More

Thought the place was great. Nice interior, with some minor repairs still on going. Had the loft room, and it was great. The pool table was a very cool touch. The staff were very nice, and breakfast was wonderful. The cook made what we asked for, in this case waffles, woth a side of fruit. The food was good, as... More

Even staying 6 weeks in Canada this accommodation will be the only one I write a comment about. I booked the room with the jacuzzi and really enjoyed it after a couple of weeks in backpackers and budget hotels it was a great delight spending an hour with the sun shining into the bathroom, sitting in a jacuzzi. The staff... More

Having decided to go to Calgary I searched Trip Advisor and found this B & B. It had many negative reviews from last year and this year. It had also been highlighted that things had changed for the better. I placed this as my wild card for my trip through Canada, I was not sure. On arrival I found that... More

We were very pleased with our experience at Elbow River Manor! The house is a lovely old Mission home with much of the original wood and period details retained. The inside was spotless and neat as a pin. Our room had 2 very comfortable double beds with our own bathroom across the hall and plenty of lovely fluffy white towels... More

I inquired of this bed & breakfast via email initially. I had many questions about possible restrictions due to the allergies associated with bringing my 20-month-old baby. I received a warm email back saying allergies were no problem and that I was to call them to make the arrangements via phone and put down a 50% deposit via credit card.... More

We had heard good things about this B&B from the Lonely Planet so thought we would give it a go. We gave the B&B a call (as it requests on their website) and we got through to the owner (or so he said). Apparently he couldn't take bookings so we would have to call back another day to get 'the...

We were travelling through Calgary for the Stampede. The location is great for walking to the Stampede grounds but that is all that is good about the place. The entire building and grounds need to be cleaned up. It is worn and tired looking. The interior is dimly lit and if you arrive in the evening there probably will not... More
