“Visit to Banff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

The Mountain Home is a lovely B and B with quality furnishings and amenities. It is located in an excellent part of the city in easy walking distance to the commercial parts of Banff. Breakfasts were good and varied by day. There are many positive reviews of this B and B and despite its location and qualify, I would not stay there again. Other reviewers have commented on taking your shoes off at the front door which as someone from a muddy, snowy, location is not unusual. What is unusual in not being allowed to roll your roller suitcases over the floors.
Breakfast was served with the kitchen door closed and little or no interaction with the hostess. When we asked about places to eat we were referred to the dining guide where some guests had put annotations next to restaurants they liked. Now she has lived there for a long time, wouldn’t you think some local knowledge would be welcomed and offered? One of the reasons you stay at a B and B is to get the local knowledge and friendliness of the host/hostess; there was none here.

Stayed for six nights as we wanted to do some hiking in the Rockies. Beautiful bedroom and bathroom, the most comfortable and huge bed and breakfasts were delicious. This B&B is only five minutes walk from the main street in Banff yet very quiet overnight.

We had to take our shoes off in the hallway and some slippers were provided but many looked like they had already been worn by others so best to take your own. Didn't find it easy to "connect" with Lynne but she seemed to warm to us after six nights.

...we left somewhat confused as never really experienced Lynne's hospitality over our three night stay. She was pleasant enough but never instigated a conversation (even when opening the front door upon our arrival) or explained about our room, the facilities in the B&B or indeed what there was in the town. This left us feeling intrusive when we asked about where a couple of things were. Breakfast was perfectly fine it was no better than scores of others we have enjoyed over the years and again there was no interaction between hostess and guests. It was left to us to make sightseeing suggestions and restaurant recommendations to each other.

Having said that the location just a couple of blocks from downtown and it's shops and restaurants was hard to beat and our room was welcoming, comfortable and spotless.

If you search for an excellent B&B close to Banff town center, but enough far away to have a quite room and an own parking lot for your car, Lynne's Mountain Home B&B is perfect. Elegant and Banff-Style rooms with a king size bed and a huge bathrooom. Especially the breakfast makes it worth to stay here. Start your day with fresh fruits and a glass of orange juice, choose between different cereals, yoghurt or jams. Of course you have to try the daily warm treat (one day sweet, one day tasty). Enjoy to sit with the other guests at the table and discuss the best places in Banff National Park.

Cosy rooms within from anywhere in or around Banff. Lynnes breakfasts were delicious and different both days we stayed with home cooked muffins, pancakes and nest eggs. Would definitely recommend a stay.

We stayed for 3 nights in the Rundle Room (which faces the front and has a fireplace). This B&B is only 2 blocks from the town centre and you can easily access the shops and restaurants. The room was cosy with a king size bed, free inclusive Wifi (very fast) and a coffee maker and fridge on the landing outside the room. There is a phone on the landing too which you can use,

Lynne was a lovely host and made us very welcome. Her breakfasts are superb and it is worth staying just for that! The breakfast spread included the usual cereals, toast, fresh fruit, yoghurt, orange juice and coffee. But she also offers a hot treat too - we had nest eggs one day, french toast with strawberries the next day and frittatas on the last day. Lynne also baked lovely cakes and scones which were simply delicious.

I would have no hesitation staying here again.

A very nice spacious room with a king-king size bed. We slept like babies. The breakfast was excellent, a different main dish every morning and plenty of fresh fruits. Coffee and tea were available all day. Nice to have parking space at the back of the house.

Room Tip: The room with the king size bed and en-suite bathroom is a very good choice.
