“A nice home away from home place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

My husband and I stayed there for our belated 25th Anniversary trip in mid September for 5 nights. Throughly enjoyed ourselves with the scrumptious breakfasts and the yummy afternoon snacks! We throughly enjoyed the fact that we could get to know the other visitors staying at the B&B, not like staying at a hotel and never meeting anyone. It was nice to be able to come back from the day's adventure and hear what other people did.

There is a reason why Buffaloberry Bed and Breakfast is considered #1 B&B in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The Inkeepers, James and Theresa are simply the best when it comes to hospitality, friendliness, accomodations and knowledge of the area. If you had questions about any hikes, attractions, restuarants, or just to see wildlife they had maps and info of where to to go.

The Buffaloberry is located in a good location of downtown Banff, so you can walk to restuarants and shopping. The B&B is spotless and everything was in good working order in our room.

This will be a keeper to tell our friends and family to go to if they get up that way. If we ever make it up that way again Buffaloberry will be the place that we will stay in.

James and Theresa are fabulous hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are superb and accommodation luxurious. Loads of advice on where to eat or spend your day including good hikes. If you want to know what to do if you encounter a bear just ask James!

My husband and I stayed at the Buffaloberry three nights in early September for our honeymoon and wished we would have booked a longer stay! It was such a better experience than the Fairmont Chateau at Lake Louise and the Post Hotel at Lake Louise where we had stayed during the first half of our trip to the Canadian Rockies. The hospitality and accommodations were top notch and the owners were as friendly as could be and they offered many informative suggestions (hiking, animal spotting, restaurants) and friendly conversations. The breakfasts were excellent and very filling. We also enjoyed siting out on the back porch in the evenings enjoying a bottle of wine and friendly conversation with other guests. The B&B is very close to downtown Banff, definitely within close walking distance. The house is also spotless and well kept. There is true pride in the Buffaloberry and we will definitely be recommending it to our family and friends.

We enjoyed our three night stay here - an absolute luxurious place to stay with all the amenities we could have asked for. Two excellent hosts, full of local knowledge along with fabulous breakfasts and snacks made it a very happy stay for both of us.
A real bonus is the off street parking and the rear deck for sitting out on when it's warm.
Wonderful and we can highly recommend the place.

It's been over 2 years since we visited this wonderful place and it is without a doubt the best place we have ever stayed. Every hotel is compared against this and we hope that one day we will be able to return. Theresa and James were so welcoming and helpful and gave us great ideas for some hikes. The breakfast was out of this world and it really is an experience to stay here - wow! Sorry it's taken so long for me to write this review but thank you for a great stay and we hope to return one day.

We stayed at Buffaloberry for two nights in early August and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Theresa and Jim are marvelous hosts, warm and genuine. The inn has an interesting contemporary design and is tastefully appointed. Breakfasts were wonderful: yogurt and granola, fluffy whole wheat pancakes, fresh fruit salad, and a bottomless cup of good coffee. The B&B is on a quiet residential street only a few locks from downtown. This is a great place to stay if you pass through Banff.

From start to finish our stay at the Buffaloberry B & B was extra-ordinary. The design of the house is ingenious and beautiful. It is tastefully and functionally decorated. Parking is so convenient. It is located on a quiet street extremely close to the busy bustle of Banff centre. Touches like lavender soap, the morning newspaper, afternoon snacks, complimentary water and other assorted beverages, large towels, daily service, guides and maps, plenty of books and reading materials, make this establishment special. I do not like to refer to the Buffaloberry as a "place" since it is more of an experience. The key to that experience is the skilled and kind attention of our hosts Theresa and James. They are obviously well traveled and know what is excellence and what is not. That experience shows in the manner in which they run the Buffaloberry Inn. They have just the perfect blend of caring attention and respect for privacy. Most hosts gravitate to either "absent from duty" to smothering control. Not here... you will value each interaction you have with James and Theresa yet never feel imposed upon.
And then there is breakfast!!! Absolutely the best ingredients (many local when possible), prepared perfectly, and presented pleasingly. Even my 15 year old loved the food..and she can be particular. I cannot believe that they are not trained chefs.
What probably impressed me most was their commitment to quality. They could have cut corners to save some money here and there but they did not. Everything was done top flight even if that meant a little more at their expense.
