We only stayed for one night, but loved the cozy atmosphere & friendly staff. Breakfast was wonderful and we were made to feel very much at home. We will definitely come back & hopefully take in one of the cooking classes.

We felt like we were staying with friends - very gracious and considerate friends - when we stayed here. A comfortable and quiet room, excellent restaurants at your doorstep, delicious breakfast, friendly and helpful staff and free bikes to explore the town - why stay anywhere else in Canmore.

A beautiful b & b with everything you need. Great, central location in Canmore. Would definately stay here again. Delicious, homemade breakfast. Bikes available to ride. Love the Miele coffee machine!

Please save your money...because if you can’t afford the luxury of being here don't bother coming. From the moment I booked in to the Paintbox Lodge, that was the impression I was left with. Some friends and I went there to celebrate a bachelorette party so we booked two rooms and a cooking class. According to the conversation I had... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It will make our business better. After feedback from hotel guests staying at the lodge during this bachelorette, our staff debrief and based on my personal interaction with your group, we have made changes to our booking policies. We no longer host bachelorette’s without renting the entire lodge. In this... More

We stayed at Paintbox for 2 nights and so glad we did. Why stay in Bamff when you can stay in a much nicer town, and an excellent B&B like Paintbox. Right in the downtown area, restaurants are close by . The place is like a lodge with lots exposed wooden beams. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet.... More

My wife and I stayed at Paintbox Lodge on the 1st June 2015. We arrived late in the evening but had contacted the Hotel prior to leaving the UK to let them know our plans and several days before our arrival they sent an e-mail with instructions and pass number to gain access. The Hotel is in a great location,... More

We are a little different at the Paintbox. We are a bed and breakfast that feels like a boutique hotel. As we don't have staff onsite 24 hours, we do a self check in for our late arrivals which can feel strange and kind of fun. All our rooms are a little different. And the Miele coffee machine is often... More

I highly recommend the Paintbox lodge. My wife and I stayed there two nights as part of a four day weekend in Banff National Park area. We stayed in "The Loft" one night and a regular room the other. This is a quaint lodge in a great location with walking distance to Canmore's shops and amenities. The included breakfast is... More

we discovered the Paintbox Lodge online, and decided to try it out on our way to Kelowna. A beautiful, quaint diamond in the rough - located in the heart of downtown. The service, the rooms, and all the amenities far exceeded our expectations. We will definitely stay here again.

I just stayed for one night at the Paintbox lodge with my mother and grandmother whilst they were over visiting for the UK. I booked the lodge after seeing pictures that a friend shared, I messaged her immediately to find out where it was as it looked beautiful!! We found the lodge and we were lucky enough to be able...
