We stayed here so we could go to the Passion Play. Everything was very clean and we we retreated very well. Beds were comfy. I would ask for a back room as the front room had a lot of road traffic noise. Breakfast was really delicious! A great place to stay.

Stayed here, on a 1 month driving tour of SW Canada and NW USA, whilst we visited the excellent Royal Tyrrell Museum superb dinosaur collection. After a long, long 300 mile drive from Cranbrook BC that day, we were very pleased to be so warmly welcomed despite our late arrival. Our hosts couldn't have been more hospitable, helping us in...

We stayed with Lynne and Mike at their welcoming B&B, and were very happy there. We'd had a long day, with Drumheller being our first Alberta stop after flying into Calgary. A good nights' sleep was just what we needed and we were not disappointed. The bed was wonderful, and the room had everything we needed. The brekkie the next... More

We stayed in the Hollywood room and the bed was comfortable and the room had every thing we'd like. It was a great location; Mike and Lynne were excellent hosts. The breakfast was tasty: eggs, toast, cheese, fruit, muffins, coffee.. a great start to a long day in Drumheller. We'd definitely stay here again.

Taste the past is a great place to stay if you are going to Drumheller. It is close to the Royal Tyrell Museum. Our hosts were lovely. They made us feel very welcome. They were knowledgeable about all the things we wanted to do in the area. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful! It was a very filling breakfast. We... More

A friend and I stayed in the "Jessie Gouge" room with two single beds and ensuite with a shower. Very spacious room and very comfortable beds....after a long day of... More

Couldn't have started our little getaway any better ... at arrival we were being greeted as if we were friends dropping by. Lynne and Michael are very charming hosts. The house is soo cozy! Located right in the historical centre of Drumheller ... and everything is basically in walking distance. We even walked to the Tyrell Museum, although you need... More

We only stayed one night, but wished we have more! This lovely B&B is centrally located on the main drag in Drumheller. Lovely, welcoming hosts. Rooms were spacious and lightly decorated -- with lots of room for you to put your stuff. Hosts Denise and Dennis have thoughtfully provided luggage racks for suitcases, so you don't have to be scrabbling... More

The couple who currently runs this place is wonderful, but it is currently up for sale. Hopefully to people who take over are equally as lovely. The location is excellent for all the attractions near Drumheller, and the breakfasts are amazing! If sleeping in is part of your vacation plan this may not be your ideal spot, as I believe... More
