“not too welcome here”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2008

We and several other family members spent Christmas here and had rented several rooms. We were not welcome to use the common room as advertised (we all had to cram into one of the guest rooms to socialize together) and actually felt rather unwelcome in general. It was much more like a European guest house or a hotel than a typical North American bed and breakfast, and was definitely not what we had expected.

The hosts weren't blatantly rude to us but definitely weren't overly friendly either. They were also very noisy early in the morning, and the shared bathroom was rather awkward and not always clean.

  • Liked — was within walking distance to some businesses
  • Disliked — hosts were not very friendly, not allowed to use the common room, noisy, shared bathroom

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2008

The owners were warm and welcoming and helpful during the stay. The location is a few minutes walk from the main street, quiet and felt safe.

I seemed to be the only person paying to stay at the time, allowing me full run of the shared bathroom and free internet. The internet is a good edition to the place although the computer is rather slow, there is also a guest fridge on the ground level.

A perfeclty good place to stay, I've stayed in nicer places but much worse too, I'd say its slightly above average and would happily stay again.

  • Liked — Free net access and helpful owners
  • Disliked — A bit dark around the ground floor

My 3 nights at Casabanff were comfortable and breakfasts delicious. Other guests were interesting to talk to around the breakfast table...you don't usually get that in the big hotels!!Rooms were basic but clean. A bit dreary to spend too much time there but if it's just for sleeping and breakfast I would recommend it.

  • Liked — Breakfasts
  • Disliked — Room was a bit dreary and outside garden unkept.

Owners are loud with their TV and music - Also, tend to be very rude. The beds are extremely uncomfortable - the matress is 6 inch foam on wood slats.

This is a great find in Banff, recommended by friends. Excellent price, made even better by the excellent breakfasts, as previous reviewers have mentioned, you won't leave hungry!! Really sets you up for the day with all the homemade food. Owners were lovely.Rooms are basic, but when you're using them as a base, then it doesn't matter, they were clean & comfortable. Lovely to be able to have a bath aswell!!

Stayed June 2004

My cousins and I just came back from Banff and we are so grateful about the experience staying in Casabanff B&B for six nights. First of all, both John and Magi (the host) are very kind, nice and passionate. At the moment when we checked in, we knew that we made a right choice. Both of them are very acquainted with the ways to have fun in Rockies. Following their suggestions, me and my cousins have a lot of fun there even without a car.

Staying in Casabanff, you definitely don't want to miss the wonderful breadfast prepared by Magi. Sometimes, we did not even know where to start because there are various choices on the table. We admire Magi's homemade Jelly , Muffins, pancakes, biscottis, cakes........so much. After breadfast, we never felt hungry before 3:00pm.

Having travelling around so many countries, I have to say that Casabanff is the most wonderful one in my personal B&B experience. If I have chance to visit Banff again in the future, I will definitely choose to go back Casabanff.

Great B&B. very personal, guests have breakfast together on a big table. The breakfast changes every day: eggs with baccon, pancakes, cookies and cakes...

The owners know Banff very well and they can give you good tips what you could do in the National Parks.

The rooms are clean, but already a bit older. Awesome Kingsized bed!

We had a good time and I would go there again! The room for 2 was C$80 plus tax.
