“What a wonderful time I had here !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

I was fortunate to stay here for 2 nights in September and had the same 3 couples at breakfast each morning - 2 from England and 1 from northern California. The conversations were lively and funny and a good time was had by all. Each of us ate at least one night at the St. James Pub - one had dinner there both nights it was so good.

Our breakfasts were excellent - Lynn is a great cook and one day was french toast stuffed with strawberries and the other was perfect little egg tartlettes-no crust (sorry Lynn can't remember what you called them) - perfectly presented with a thin slice of tomato cooked into top - very decorative.

Lynn makes all her own preserves - no pectin. We had a choice of blueberry, peach and raspberry and each was delicious! Fruit and toast - juice and plenty of coffee.

I stayed in the Cascade Room - nicely decorated - large bathroom with tub - spotlessly clean! A nice, relaxing chair where I read each evening and, although I never turned it on, there was a wall-mounted tv if you like to watch before bed. The bed was very comfortable and I slept like a baby after wonderful long hikes each day. I really appreciated the antiques - especially the pictures of Banff in earlier days.

I would highly recommend this B&B - Lynn was also very helpful with advice on what to see and where to go - suggested Johnston Canyon as our morning hike before it got crowded and then to Lake Louise for the hike to Lake Agnes Tea House.

You can walk to town from here for dinner and there is parking at the rear for guests. Also, there is a lovely patio in the back. You will really enjoy your stay here -

We stayed 2 nights in July 2012. The B&B is beautifully decorated, extremely clean, comfortable and close walking distance to restaurants and shops on Banff Ave. Lovely home cooked breakfast with tea and coffee facilities available all day. Definately a better option than hotel accomodation.

We spent week with Lynn and Ecki in their wonderful home. The room and amenities were very nice and the breakfasts were excellent. The house is also close to downtown restaurants. They provided lots of information and recommendations on things to do in the area. We highly recommend this B&B.

This B&B was a wonderful, friendly place to call home while visiting the beautiful sites in and around Banff. Lynne was a great hostess and Ecki had some great hiking ideas. Would definitely stay there again - close to main drag

We enjoyed a three night stay at this lovely home which is only a few minutes walk away from the main street. Room and en-suite very comfortable and homely with communal tea & coffee making facilities and fridge just outside the bedrooms. Lynne provided excellent home cooked breakfasts and delighted us with something different each morning. She was an excellent host and very helpful. Our grateful thanks to her for making our stay so memorable

From our 1st email enquiry, Lynne&Eckie were the first to respond, and in all communications ( especially as we were going to arrive late evening) they were efficient,polite and very very helpful. The accommodation is in a quiet residential area with Banff main street only minutes walk away. Bow river a short walkable distance too. The room and the en-suite was spotlessly clean and well equipped. A coffee machine and kettle at the top of the stairs was a very welcome attribute. Breakfast was in a lovely downstairs room with a well laid out table. It was nice to have different people from different places to chat to over breakfast. The breakfast was varied and plentiful, no need to start your day hungry. Top,top accommodation and if we ever returned to Banff - we would definitely stay here again. Thank you.

Room Tip: feel that they all will be good
