“A Wonerful Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We stayed for 3 days in this wonderful B&B located in the heart of Banff. Jami is a perfectionist and a wonderful innkeeper. She is VERY knowledgeable about the local area and attractions. In addition, she made us "snack packs" for our daily exploration trips. You get what you pay for - search no more - this is the place to stay!!!

Room Tip: Both rooms are of excellent quality.

We stayed four nights in Jami’s (Thea’s) house. We stayed in a lot of B&B’s the last four years but this is definitely the highest standard we ever had. The room is a dream. All details are perfect it can’t be better. The whole house is very tasteful furnished.
The breakfast is a dream. We never had such a selection of fresh fruits. Each day another hot dish and Jami is a very thoughtful host. During the breakfast she asked us several times if all is enough and OK or if we need something.
Jami is also very helpful if you need information’s about hikes or whatever you need. We had some nice talks. She is very charming and friendly.
If we come back to Banff we will only go to Jami
Thank you very much for all Jami.
Best regards
Patrik & Petra (Black Forest)

If you would like to have a wonderful B&B experience, then this is your place to be. Located just a short walk from Banff city center, this place has four wonderful rooms. There is a great deal of attention, detail and love put in this place. And you feel right at home in the luxurious rooms.
We loved Jamie, her friendliness, her breakfast and her passion for her B&B. We would not stay anywhere else if we ever come back to Banff.

Although Thea's house may be a little more expensive than some B&B's it is worth it. The house is just beautiful, the room spacious, well equipped, comfortable and the whole place is extraodinarily clean and neat.

As other reviews have said, Jami is a perfectionist and no detail is left unattended. She is welcoming, and has useful local knowledge.

Breakfast was delightful - and the coffee station in the evening was very welcome.

Jami made an excpetion and allowed us and our friends to stay for justone night. We should have stayed longer and we would most certainly stay here again.

We spent three night at Thea's, four block off of Banff Avenue in Banff. We wish we could have stayed longer but they were booked. The property is so clean, well kept and Jamie the owner is a perfectionist and it shows in everything she does. The view out our window was fantastic. The breakfeast she served were amazing. Continental with something hot, pancakes or something along those lines. You are required to take your shoes off at the front door which should give you an idea of how much pride that the owners have to maintain the property for their guests. Once you park your car at Thea's you will not need it again if you are going to dinner or shopping around town. I would really recommend Thea's Place.

Thea's House B&B provided an excellent base for our recent 4 day stay in the Banff/Lake Louise area. the Inn is very conveniently located within walking distance of downtown Banff, the accomodations (Edith's Room) wer very comfortable, and Jami was a very courteous hostess. Breakfast had an excellent variety of fruits and cheese each day in addition to cold cereal and a hot entree. The hot entrees were well prepared, but not as imaginative as some we have had in other inns. All in all a very good location from which to explore the magnificant Canadian Rockies.

Thea's house is immaculate and the bedrooms are amazing! Vary large 4 poster beds and lots of space. Nothing is out of place anywhere in this B&B, all decorations are very tasteful and match the setting. Parking is available and you can easily walk into Banff for dinner. Jami knows the area well and is very happy to give advice about sights to visit in the area. Breakfast was our only issue I am lactose intolerant and a couple of times during our stay I was unable to eat the hot food, a choice would be nice as the rates here are expensive. Also be aware that all hot food is vegetarian.
