“Brilliant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

I can thoroughy recommend the Big Horn B & B. We stayed in the Honeymoon suite which is spacious, light and well equipped. The situation is ideal, being a short walk from the town centre and an even shorter walk to a supermarket. It is perfect for self catering, having everything you need to heat a meal or make salads. Breakfast is provided with a good selection of breads, jams and fruit. The owners, who live upstairs, are friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back.

Friendly service, clean & spacious, good breakfast with juice, coffee, pastries, muffins etc.
Ideal location (5 minutes walk into Banff), easy parking. Even saw an Elk walk past the house one morning!

Room Tip: We booked the 'honeymoon suite' which had a lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

Stayed here for 4 nights in June in the 'Family Room'. It was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The kitchen was also spacious with a good sized dining table.
Ann and Lawrence were excellent hosts and could not have been more helpful. Ann provided a good selection of breads, pastries, muffins, jams, cereals, juice, milk, tea and coffee etc for breakfast. We had taken a 'microwave egg poacher' with us on our travels - very handy!
Big Horne is well located being only about 200m from Banff Ave, where there is an excellent Safeway foodstore.
Thoroughly recommended.

This B&B is well run. We had a separate entry and large living space. Not fancy, but very clean and functional.

Everything was very clean and nice. The Big Horn B and B is a good value in expensive Banff. The lock on our door wouldn't work, and even the owner had a little trouble with it, but from the way everything was maintained, I bet they have gotten a new lock already. I had read about the noisy trains, but I never heard one during the night; we slept with a window open. There was a bit of a funky smell when we first walked in, but once we opened the windows, all was well. Anne seemed very nice and helpful. While you're in Banff, be sure to visit the fabulous pool at the Upper Hot Springs.

We stayed at The Big Horn B&B, in the Honeymoon Suite, for 8 days in August and found it 'ideal in every way'! We were in Banff for a family wedding and so there was a lot of 'socialising' going on with relatives and friends. The fact that we had our own private entrance & key meant we could come and go as we pleased. Banff Avenue (the 'heart' of Banff) is only a 5 minute walk away .

The accommodation offers the best of both worlds - the independence of your own little apartment but with the convenience of hotel-like service such as daily cleaning & clean towels provided every 2 days. The breakfasts provided each day were excellent and really set us up for the day -cereals;bagels/croissants;pastries;yoghurts;fresh orange juice;tea/coffee etc.

We found Anne extremely welcoming and friendly. We would recommend this B&B to anyone and would certainly stay there again if we return to Banff.

  • Liked — Location, facilities and the independence it gives you
  • Disliked — Nothing worth mentioning
