If you want to stay at Jasper area's finest and only 4.5 Star, drive to the east side of JNP and enjoy our lovely B&B. A full hot cooked breakfast is served to you daily in our dining room that overlooks the panoramic mountain view you see here. Big B&B rooms, king bed, sat TV, refreshment centers, all the amenities plus more, all private full en-suites/bathrooms. Glenda and Bob are extremely knowledgeable of the area. If you want to beat the hustle and bustle of tourists towns Wyndswept is awesome!

An instantly forgettable bungalow off a main highway. The Pansy Suite is dark, dated with furniture looking like it's from a 1970’s garage sale complete with brown plastic sofa, noisy old fridge & luxury “tea station” consisting of a jar containing a few economy bags. It’s like staying at your Nan’s! The website implied bears strolling past the window, but on arrival you'll realise the photo depicting this wasn’t even taken at “Luxury Bob’s” place. Wall mounted dispensers dribble no frills soap under the veiled pre-text of environmental credentials, refreshments not replenished during our stay & the absence of conditioner, body lotion, etc, penny pinching. The sink leaks, the bath drains only when the plug is manually help up, lamps don’t work & you get one cheap hollow fibre pillow. Sadly Bob’s enthusiasm isn't matched by culinary skill, this combined with economy ingredients makes breakfast an endurance test best avoided. "Rules" some of which feel threatening are everywhere - there's 30 do's and don'ts. We felt controlled & observed - the knock at 8.22 summoning us for breakfast was totally unnecessary, intrusive and offensive. There's nothing about Wyndswept that could be considered luxurious, the website & owners eagerness to “gild a very ordinary lily” misleading. It's overpriced even before factoring in the hosts need to control. Extensive roadworks make Jasper an hour away. Wyndswept is decidedly odd to the point of being disconcerting. Avoid our expensive mistake.

Really enjoyed our recent 3 night stay. Bob was a gracious and helpful host, giving us pointers as to where we might find wildlife and good places to visit. Breakfast was great. Others have said there is no choice, but Bob provides such a large and varied breakfast that there is something most will be able to eat. If not, I’m sure Bob would accommodate specific requests as well. We stayed in the Pansy room and it had pretty much everything we needed including a very large and comfortable bed, which for me is the key in any accommodation I stay in. This is a B&B property, not a five star hotel with all mod cons. It’s Bob and Glenda’s house at the end of the day. Lots of small things were provided such as towels to take to the hot springs at Miette and Bob lent us some bear spray for our adventures. We had interesting conversations over breakfast with fellow guests. Embrace it for what it is. Yes, it is 45 mins from Jasper but that’s very obvious if you do some research, read the website and look at a map. As for a previous comment about paying in advance, pretty much every hotel or Air BNB does that these days. Why is it a surprise? Bob, thanks for sharing your home with us. We actually didn’t spend as much time in the property as we thought as we were out exploring so much but it was great, nonetheless.

Clean, comfortable but not ‘luxury’; an ordinary property in a cul-de-sac off a busy highway. Parking space is taken up by the owner’s very large caravan & cars. The garage door is a tarpaulin, the pathway lined by tat & whimsy. The garden is a tiny border planted with pansies. A CCTV camera greets you at the door. The ‘Pansy Suite’ is dark; the furniture cheap & miss-matched with a plastic sofa, a noisy fridge & an TV cabinet that threatened to fall over if touched. The bathroom contained the ‘rules’ blue-tacked to the wall, strip lighting & wall-mounted dispensers of dubious quality soap. Breakfast at 08:30 whether convenient or not; the 08:23 knock at the bedroom door was a surprise & imposition. We'd been asked about dietary requirements but offered no choice thereafter. The ‘Chef’ (Bob - out of respect for whom this time was set) provided lukewarm: bullet-hard poached eggs, tough ham, chewy muffins, sautéed radish & pickled asparagus. We chose not to indulge thereafter & felt so unwelcome by the 'rules' & a feeling of being watched that we spent as little time there as possible. Fooled by the ‘luxury' marketing, we elected not to spoil our holiday further by argument. In hindsight, the unusual pay up-front and in-full stipulation should have told us that all was not as it seemed. Jasper is an hour’s drive away so there is little option but to accept what you find. In short, accommodation akin to a budget motel; not worth $245 CAN per night. We felt mislead and exploited.

Stayed here for two nights, highly recommended. Bob makes the most fantastic breakfast, and is a great start off for the day, where you can discuss todays plans and meet other visitors. We stayed in chickadeeroom, it is more than a room, it is like an appartment😊. Very clean and good coffee.

Wyndswept was just what we were looking for! Out of the bustle of Jasper, a drive through the wildlife rich area just east of mountains, and gorgeous views! Our beds were amazingly comfortable and we had a double recliner in our room. The whole house is impeccably clean and all our needs were taken care of. Breakfast both days was delectable. Bob is a wonderful host, cook, and guide. He knew all the places to go and even gave us some non-touristy places to see. At the bottom of the hill is a new micro brewery which we really enjoyed. Our only complaints about Wyndswept are the mosquitoes and the fact that we didn't meet Glenda, who is still recovering from surgery.

Response from wyndswept-bb, Owner at Wyndswept Bed and Breakfast
Responded Aug 9, 2017
Ohhh I know this year was a horrible year for mosquitos. We figure it was due to wet snowy long spring and lots of water on the ground then sudden heat!! Guests often want the name of our mattress brand as they are so comfortable. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm know Bob will appreciate your positive comments. Thank you! He does such an awesome job of creating breakfast I can no longer compare👍 Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate that as we know everyone has a busy life!
