“How sad it is to leave this review”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

I really wanted to leave a stellar review because I loved Robin. But when we added it all up, her hospitality just wasn't enough to outweigh the negatives.

Pros: Rob and Robin are awesome hosts. The breakfast is delicious. They are very accommodating and helpful. There are cute, yummy muffins available any time at the check in area. The location is perfect. The price is very reasonable for that area. Dinner is available at the B&B. 3 courses for $18. We didn't try it but it's a great price.

Cons: Parking is less than ideal but manageable. We stayed in room 9 and every time we entered the basement are my husband and I injured our hand on the door because it sticks. The ceilings in the entry way have exposed pipes making clearance minimal for my 6ft 2 in husband. The bathroom in room 9 was the smallest I have ever seen. The A/C can not be adjusted in the room to suit individual temperature preferences. There is no tv in room 9.

Overall, just know what to expect when you book here. For us, the small space was more problematic because my husband is tall.

We choose a room with its own bathroom which was ideal for us. We parked our car in the back and walked easily to and from Banff many times. We enjoyed the hot breakfasts and the dining are was quite quaint and clean. After 8 no one was there so I needed a hairdryer one evening, which room 6 was not equipped with, and was unable to obtain one. Unfortunately, we found the beds to be extremely hard so not able to get a good night's sleep. We mentioned this to Robyn and she acknowledged this and hoped to replace them in the near future.

Room Tip: The website did a good review of the rooms so we selected room 6 because we wanted our own private b...

Very good B and B. Very reasonable with good access to a bath whenever required, good cooked breakfasts tasty and wholesome. We walked to town easily taking 5 - 10 minutes on level roads. Central location for drives with car and good parking. Helpful and sincere hosts. Clean and comfortable. Banff was lovely town to stay in with lots to do and see whatever weather is.
Few electricity points in bedroom as this was a house for railway workers built 100 years ago. However we managed to charge our devices and coped!
Would recommend this guest house to travellers .

Room Tip: If you like a private bathroom book this. We had use of shared bathrooms and found this fine. We h...

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights. Two at the beginning and two at the end of our vacation.
We found our room which had a kitchenette to be acceptably clean and comfortable.This is an older accommodation. The bed area and the bathroom are tight spaces in this room (# 9 , I think).
A solid, hot breakfast is included and served with a smile. I recommend scheduling dinner here during your stay. Dinner is delicious and reasonably priced.
Robin the co-owner/ hostess makes you feel like you are family which added a special touch to our stay. Prices for rooms are very reasonable for Banff.
We would stay here again in a heart beat!

Stayed here for one night during a trip to Banff and could not have asked for anything else. It was exactly what we hoped for and enjoyed talking with Robyn after we checked out. The beds were comfortable, it was within close walking distance to Banff Ave, but not right on it so it was quiet. Good breakfast, great hospitality and great value! I will be back for sure.

Room Tip: If a private bathroom is important to you, make sure you book a room that has one--they all don'...

We stayed at four different B&B during our one-week Rockies trip. This one could not be compared to other B&B because I don't think this one was up to the minimum standard. We stayed in Room 8. The room was very small, had some kind of smell, everything was old and surely needed an update. The so-called private washroom was outside the room. The washroom was very run down with many dirty spots. It just provided us a covered shelter to stay for one night. The breakfast was good but not enough to wash away our bad experience.

Owner's were friendly. It was only a few blocks to the main shopping area of Banff. Price was hard to beat. Breakfast was good with bacon, muffin, strawberries and potatoes, but I wish they served a little earlier. Owner recommended Nester's Market which my husband greatly enjoyed. Only reservation was the parking which was quite limited. We had to squeeze in behind the building. I loved their bathroom faucet, and the basement #9 worked out very well. One guest was noisy coming in around midnight but the noise was very short. We missed enjoying a hot tub and pool, but one does not expect that at a B&B. We picked this place because of price, and it is hard to beat their price for the Banff area.
Last time in Banff we got a fantastic deal on the Fairmont "Castle" which is not a fair comparison to make. This place is hard to beat for the price and location.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We are an intimate high-country inn situated three blocks east of Banff Avenue on Otter Street in a quiet residential neighbourhood. The building dates from 1918 and has 10 guest rooms and a gorgeous main lounge and dining room. We are the only B and B Inn in Banff to still serve a hot breakfast! 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. For the following forty years it was known as Douglas House and served as tourist accommodation. 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. We have private off-street parking to accommodate guests with vehicles. However, once you are in Banff many activities and walks are accessible by foot from the B&B. ... more   less
