“What a disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We stayed in Cabin 1, which was extremely small, particularly for two adults and two large/medium sized dogs. The cabin had two double beds, but the lack of an adequately sized table would have made it impossible to seat everyone (there just wasn't room). The kitchen had a sink, a VERY old, small stove and a very small under-the-counter refrigerator. There was no microwave, no telephone, no HD TV. The bathroom was so small that one couldn't open the door without bumping it against the commode. A newer, small, pedestal style sink ensured very little room for toiletries. The shower was very small and dark. The hose to the hand-held shower head took up most of the head room, making it a very uncomfortable experience. The entire cabin was dark and depressing, with inadequate ventilation and no smoke detectors. There were inadequate towel racks, so we hung towels on chairs at the dining table and on the rod dividing one of the beds from the main seating area. Four nights seemed like forever. Never again. The location of Hillside is good, close to downtown, restaurants, etc.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

I stumbled upon the website while looking for dog-friendly accommodations I was planning with the wife. Took a chance and was pleasantly surprised.

The cottage itself is small (we had the second unit deeper into the property) but very cozy. There are two queen beds available to sleep 4, but the lack of an appropriately-sized dining table makes this a difficult option.

The proximity to Banff downtown was also great -about 10 mins to the Safeway grocery store and 15 mins to the heart of town, all times on foot.

The only thing in the cons column I might add is the place could definitely use a fresh coat of paint and a plumbing fix, but those are both minor details.

Definitely check this place out if you're looking for something different!
