“Wonderful breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Very nice B&B, lovely hosts, clean & comfortable room. Breakfast was wonderful, with the homemade scones & muffins to take away if you didn't have room after the other two courses. Dave was particularly helpful with his itinerarys of all the best to see in & around Canmore & Banff National Park.

The Ambleside Lodge was our first B&B during our holiday in Canada and we were spoiled from the beginning!

Sue's breakfasts were amazing and extremely delicious! It’s no punishment to wake up with the smell of fresh scones and muffins in the morning…

Our room (CPR) was very convenient and clean. We felt right at home, as well in our room as in the entire B&B.

Sue and Dave are terrific hosts; they provided us with loads of suggestions and even a Dutch route description for sightseeing in the neighbourhood. We also could borrow towels for our visit to the hot springs.

The location is also perfect; Canmore is a cosy town, located at walking distance from the lodge and nearby Banff.

We certainly can recommend this B&B to everyone and will definitely come back if we get the chance.

I've stayed in many B&Bs and the quality can vary greatly from one to the next. Ambleside Lodge was one of the best I have experienced. The location, within walking distance of downtown Canmore, was great. The house itself is beautiful and the room (Wilderness) was exceptionally clean and cozy. There were two fans and the breeze from the bathroom windows kept the temperature very comfortable. The room had all the small touches, right down to the little chocolates and the small in-room fridge. Sue and Dave are excellent hosts. We had booked with Ambleside after e-mailing around to see if someone could help us arrange our transportation to/from two different trailheads for our thru-hike to Mt. Assiniboine. I probably should have looked more closely on the map because I had no idea just how far apart the two trailheads were! Dave and Sue helped us park our car at Mt. Shark trailhead and then drove us back to the B&B, which turned out to be a TWO HOUR affair. Dave then drove us the next morning to Sunshine trailhead, which was another 20 minutes or so from Canmore. Needless to say, it was a huge help to us and was certainly beyond a) what we anticipated and b) what any B&B host would be expected to provide. They also helped us to arrange a shuttle bus up to Sunshine Village, which we had neglected to book in advance. Dave was also a great resource for information about hiking in the area. I would also like to add that the breakfast was delicious (even the glasses on the fruit cup were rimmed with sugar) and Sue plied us with muffins and scones to take with us on our hike. A great experience and I would highly recommend Ambleside B&B to anyone looking to stay in the Canmore area.

Myself and granddaughter stayed at Ambleside lodge, a and found it very clean, comfortable and cosy. Would definitely consider staying there again, if ever in the area . Sue and Dave were great hosts and made everything so easy for us.
Canmore is a very pretty town, great views. We loved every moment. Thank you Sue and Dave could not find fault at all.

Room Tip: If you want comfort, cleanliness and such good service, choose Ambleside lodge

We stayed at Ambleside Lodge for 3 nights in late June. Canmore is a nice town with good restaurants and within easy walking distance of the BB . Breakfasts were fine as was the help on excursions from Dave.
However we did have some problems.
Our room the wilderness room was very small with no windows that opened and the only ventilation was from the bathroom. The room is also over the lounge and the TV kept us awake each night,
There had been alot of rain before we arrived and the river was very high, the BB has a sump pump in the basement which on one night ran every 5 minutes. It was so noisy at 1 am we got up and moved to an empty room at the front of the house. The noise seemed to track up through our room and the move was an improvement. The next day we moved to the CPR room which is larger has a window that opens and was quieter. if you intend to stay here i would suggest you ask for the CPR room.

At Ambleside Lodge everything fits perfect:
very nice and cozy accommodation and with such nice hosts like Sue and Dave you really feel at home, like staying with your friends or family. Every day started with a very delicious breakfast (the scones, yummy), with fresh fruit, juice, hot meals, so great - thanks to Sue. Dave gave us very useful and detailed informations about places of excursions (for us in German) and it was fun to report at the evening about the completion of our "day's mission".
Canmore is a good place to stay for visiting the Banff National Park, because all places can be reached with short driving distances. Canmore is a nice town with small shops and good restaurants. From Ambleside Lodge the town centre can be reached within short walking distance.

This was a great place to stay at the start of our holiday with Sue & Dave happy to give us advice about walking routes, weather forecasts etc. Dave is a fantastic source of walking knowledge, and with experience of mountain rescue in the UK is fascinating to talk to. His current experience as a hill walking guide helped us to understand the local area before setting out. Canmore is a lovely area and much quieter than Banff.
