We visited in high season, July 2013. We wanted to stay in a more reasonably priced place than the $200 + others were charging. We paid about $140/night. We did NOT expect a $200 room when paying $140, you get what you pay for. This B&B appears to be an older, maintained, 2-story house, that's been converted to squeeze in as many bedrooms as possible. It's located in a residential neighborhood surrounded by houses. The neighborhood looked good and I felt safe. This B&B is in sight of the main street in Banff where all the shops & restaurants are located - a 2 minute walk. We stayed in 2 different rooms, the owner told us we got the 2 smallest rooms. The rooms were clean and slightly updated, and VERY small, just big enough to fit the double bed and a small TV (one of the rooms had a small table & 2 chairs). The bathrooms were tiny. The showers were the size of those in small RV's. The shower curtains draped into the shower pan which I thought was not hygienic. They supplied only 1 small bar of soap per room. There was no air conditioning, thankfully it's cool in the evening in July, we opened the windows. It was noisy outside late into the night with people talking and partying. Again, you get what you pay for so best not to expect an extensive breakfast. There was cereal & milk, but I only use almond or soy milk, so no cereal for me. They did not have decaf coffee, so no coffee for me. There weren't enough hard boiled eggs for all the guests so we missed out, disappointing. The plain croissants were good. There were toast, apples & bananas, and small containers of yogurt. The owner was helpful, as was the female employee who was very friendly and knowledgeable about all there is to do in the area.
