“A warm and welcoming B+B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We stayed at the Banff Avenue B+B for two nights.

The B+B was excellent with a good location in town. The hosts Jamie and Connie were welcoming and informative on what to do in Banff. The cooked breakfast was amazing and filled us up so much there was no need for lunch! The room, facilities and communal areas were very good.

An excellent B+B

Our stay at the Banff B&B was delightful. We couldn’t have asked for better hosts than Connie and Jamie. Not only were the breakfasts excellent, but Connie provided an array of snacks which were also very welcome. We enjoyed our downstairs room, which was next to the guest sitting room, and which was great for late night reading. There were many things to see and do in Banff, and the B&B was just a few blocks from the downtown area. We appreciated Connie’s recommendations for restaurants. While there, we discovered copies of Jamie’s book, The Advance Man, in the sitting room. We purchased a copy, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Great job, Jamie!

We felt like family. Everything about this place was great. Always there to offer help with our day trips, Super breakfasts. Turns out Jamie wrote a wonderful book which I purchased and it is a page turner. Very interesting and well written. I read a lot and the book is outstanding. We are from Illinois and our traveling partners are from Saratoga Springs NY.We were all thrilled with this wonderful home and the beautiful couple who shared it with us on a great trip to Canada.

This was by far and away the best b&b we've ever stayed in. Connie and Jamie are such thoughtful hosts, helped us plan our itinery to include things that took us off the well trodden tourist trail including some of Jamie's own walks. Room was spotless and breakfast was filling and lovely. We stayed in another b&b during our stay as Connie was fully booked, Connie's place was cheaper and better, don't stay anywhere else!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in mid August. Connie, the host, was great - very accommodating and friendly. We had the bedroom downstairs - very comfortable bed. We were surprised that each day the room was freshened up, bed made (even though I had made it), and all towels were replaced (used or not). Jamie who lives and works at the B&B was a wealth of information on what to see and do in the area. The breakfasts, although nothing fancy, were filling, tasty and more than adequate.

Banff Avenue is located on the main street, a couple of blocks from the downtown - excellent location for shopping, dining, and day-tripping! We would definitely recommend staying here.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2012 and loved it. I was down with a fever flying into Calgary and was thankful that we had such a comfortable room to rest.

Breakfast was amazing. We had different things every morning and each were great.

The house also has a history and the host will be happy to tell you more about it. Very interesting fire place.

Location: it is located on the main road Banff Ave. not exactly in downtown as it is a walk away. We drove downtown for dinners most nights and didn't have any problem finding parking. You can walk too.

Room tip: if you like quietness, ask for a room not facing the main road as the traffic is busy on banff ave pretty much throughout the day.
