Comparing this B&B with others in the same price range, this was very poor value. A very ordinary continental breakfast, which we had to prepare ourselves and then were expected to wash our own dishes! Only 3 hangers in closet. Crumpled, faded (though clean) bedlinen.

Our accommodation is a year 2000 build apartment style, private, clean, spacious and separate from the rest of the house. It includes a large kitchen and dining area where guests are free to enjoy meals at their leisure. We offer a lower rate for those guests who prefer not to enjoy our continental breakfast, which includes selection of fresh fruit,... More

While attending the Canmore Folk Festivel the long weekend in August, my friend and I were lucky enough to come across Parkside Place Guest House as a home base for our stay. Parkside Place was a wonderful experience for us and we felt right at home in the very spacious and clean accommodations. We were fortunate enough to secure the... More

Our week exploring round Kananaskis / Banff / Canmore area was made VERY enjoyable by the QUALITY of our self catered accommodation. Hosts are helpful & knowledgeable. Modern home features comfortable bedrooms with ensuite & guest's lounge & kitchen, all separate from delightful young family living on upper levels. Enjoyed BBQ'ing occasionally & the many cafes in town a short... More

As mentioned by another reviewer, the rooms are located in the lower level of the house, while the hosts live in the upper level. I stayed in the Cougar Room, which is located below the kitchen. As you can imagine, any activity occuring in the kitchen upstairs is apparent downstairs. This is a problem if you are a light sleeper... More

Canmore is a moderately cheaper alternative to Banff and a nice, if slightly less convenient town to base your visit to Banff and Yoho National Parks.We would not have used Canmore as a base for the Icefield Parkway. Entered from the rear of the property, Parkside Place B&B is the downstairs area of a large "new" house, where the owners... More

Each or our two bedrooms feature a private full ensuite bathroom. Though ideal for two couples or family travelling together, we often have one couple in our guesthouse at any time. There is parking for two large vehicles or three smaller vehicles on our property, as well as on street parking 50 feet away. We always available and of course... More

We were fortunate to be able to switch to the Parkside Place Guest House for our last 2 nights in Canmore. We prefer the more personal nature of small accommodation providers and in this case we were not disappointed.. The location was quiet, the accommodation area of a very high standard and the hosts were extremely hospitable. If we had... More

Oh, this blessed vacation time! Just came back from a trip to Western Canada and have to share my impressions. We all know how important accomodation is when you travel: it can either make your vacation heavenly or ruin it. This time we got really lucky. We found this B &B place on the Internet and we could not have... More
