“Spring in Banff, Family Reunion, Fabulous B/B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We arrived for a 4 night stay on May 2 having just heard challenging news from the East. Robyn, our hostess, quickly responded as we reflected on the beautiful deck overlooking a fabulous mountain view. Tea for Audrey...and a very kind heart. Thanks Robyn so very much. Robyn, a professional masseuse and her partner Rob, former sous-chef at a high end Banff restaurant took over this Banff bed and breakfast just over a year ago, and their personalities and skills blend together to provide the best of traveller experiences. There are a variety of rooms/suites in this 'inn'....some shared washrooms, some ensuite. The place is kept spotless, the bed in Room 1 most comfortable, and the location on Otter Street, just 2 blocks from downtown Banff, perfect. The breakfasts vary each morning, prepared by Rob with Robyn's assistance, and are a perfect start to the day. There is a small fridge for wine-keeping. Robyn quickly related positively to visitors from around the world who were there on our occasion. Robyn provides masseuse support for skiers or hikers needing an extra stretch. While we didn't take advantage of this we did take advantage of the dining opportunity that Rob provides at dinner. The weather was warm enough for us to eat on the deck, and the dinner (3 courses) as nice a dinner as you can have.
Delicious Rob-made soup and salad, a wonderful main course, and Rob's home made ice cream to close it off. One morning waiting in a breakfast alcove overlooking the street I watched two white tailed deer stroll by the bed and breakfast......not unusual according to Robyn, In closing we would only stay at the Rocky Mountain B and B when returning to Banff. It exceeded everything we wanted and needed!!! And I haven't even mentioned the very reasonable cost for an overnight stay!!! You'll want to stay longer for certain!!! Free parking on site.

Room Tip: Looked at the suite at the top of the building.....very nice. Checked out the rooms on our floor...

I stayed here for eight nights and it was perfect for what I wanted. Lovely hosts, great breakfast (loved the cooked breakfast); clean room, comfy bed. Only a few minutes walk onto the famous Banff Avenue. Will definitely stay there again.

My sister and I stayed here for 10 nights and were extremely happy. The room was comfortable and very clean with plenty of room for all our ski gear. We didn't have a car but the distance to the ski shuttle pick-up is just a 5 minute walk so not a problem. Robyn and Rob are wonderful hosts - very welcoming and warm. The breakfasts were sublime, and I would highly recommend staying in for dinner too. Rob is an excellent chef. Really fantastic value and I would definitely stay here in preference to hotels in Banff from now on.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights and we were very happy. The hosts Rob and Robyn were very welcoming and hospitable. The room was clean and had adequate space for both of us, 4 bags and ski gear. We had an ensuite which was large and clean. I highly recommend having dinner at the B&B at least one night of your stay, Rob cooks an excellent meal and it was good value. The hot breakfast was also very nice. If you want a bit of extra indulgence, have a massage, it was very relaxing. Great value accommodation, overall it was no more expensive than a private room at one of the hostels in Banff but much nicer.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this charming B&B! An excellent breakfast gets you started in the morning (besides cereals and toast, a different, warm breakfast menu is prepared fresh every day). Owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. Take advantage of staying in for a delicious dinner prepared by the owner (we had Bison and it was excellent).

My boyfriend and I are in our 20's and were looking for a place to stay over New Years. We chose Rocky Mountain B&B mainly because of the central location and that one of the managers is a chef! The food was really great, service was excellent, and the house had a charming character feel to it. This B&B has maybe 10 guest rooms, light snacks available 24/7, message therapy, supper reservations, ect.. The couple that runs it does a great job, and really goes out of their way to make you comfortable. The only 'faults' I'd list was there was only shared bathrooms on the floor we were on, and it's not hard to hear others talking in other rooms when it's quiet. Other than that it's a great place to stay and very affordable!

Rocky Mountain B&B is situated near the centre of Banff but on a nice quiet street. We were in a downstairs bedroom with out bathroom a little down the hall. The room was clean, and it was handy to have a fridge to store picnic fixings.
Both owners were very friendly and helpful. The best thing about Rocky Mountain was the delicious hot breakfast- something different every morning! They were also very good to cater for me as a coeliac.
A good spot to stay.

The building dates from 1907 and has 10 guest rooms and a gorgeous main lounge and dining room. We use excellent ingredients, serve locally roasted organic coffee and vary our menu daily. This historic mountain home is warm and spacious. It was used extensively in the '30s by CPR work crews as a boarding house.

The Inn was fully restored in the late '80s and has had recent renovations to maintain its original character and substantial mountain charm. We have four suites, which suit small families, as well as simple and elegant double rooms. Our dining room and lounge are open to guest use during the day and there is a television in the lounge.
