The Alpine B&B is an excellent base for visiting Banff. It's not large and breakfast is not fancy, but it is clean and close to everything. We walked from here to the Banff Springs Hotel, Bow Falls, the Cave & Basin, and downtown. Americans should note that this facility does not have washclothes as we know them - we were not terribly surprised since we have traveled in the Far East it is the same there. Great value!
