The Poplar Inn
Ranked #10 of 28 Banff B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 30, 2012

We don't often stay at B&B's; we are a bit more accustomed to hotels, usually 5 star in fact. For a change we thought we'd stay at a B&B in Banff, and it was a great experience. We had a concert late that night, so the separate entrance was nice. The room and bathroom were very clean; always good to have a King Bed.

The breakfast the next morning was prompt, full and very tasty. No complaints at all.

Room Tip: Watch as to whether you will get a full breakfast in the low season (winter). We did.

We had a lovely time at the Poplar inn. Breakfasts were great...I mentioned that blueberry pancakes are my favorite...and Susan served them twice! The location is convenient to everything in Banff(walking). Susan makes you feel right at home and during breakfasts gave us a history of the Banff area.

We enjoyed Banff tremendously and the Polar Inn added to the enjoyment of our visit to the region.

My wife & I stayed 3 nights in September 2011 at Poplar Inn as part of a Western Canada tour.

Our hostess, Susan, served an excellent breakfast in the residents lounge area each morning. Susan was also a mine of local information mixed with stories from her family & childhood growing up in the area. We found Banff very touristy but Poplar Inn is nicely located off the main drag just down a couple of side streets and you are in Banff Avenue - maybe 5 minutes walk.

We stayed in the Larch Room on the ground floor which was very clean & tidy with a large double bed and a view out to the garden. Couldn't fault it.

We stayed for two nights in August. The room was nicely furnished, with a big comfortable bed and direct access to outside. The bathroom was OK with a good shower, although a bit cramped (and could do with larger towels!)
There's a nice residents lounge with a fridge, kettle etc, where you also have breakfast.

We stayed 3 nights with Susan in September. We had the Maple room - very comfortable, huge bed. Patio doors open onto decked area and garden which would be lovely in the warmer weather. Breakfast was different each morning - great home cooking. Susan is a great story teller and we found her really interesting with lots of local information - ask her about the bears and her apple tree! Thoroughly recommended - ideal location - near to several good eateries - try Melissa's.

Susan is a knowledgeable world traveller and puts together a splendid light breakfast. The bed is huge and comfortable. My wife got her best night's sleep since we've been on the road.

Room Tip: Either room is excellent with access to patio and yard.

We spent 2 nights at Susan's B&B. Absolutely fabulous location. A few minutes walk and we were right in town. The Inn is new and very tastefully decorated. The two room have their own entrance and eating area. Very convenient and didn't disturb Susan when we wanted to make a drink. Breakfast was very nice and Susan was willing to chat and talk to us about her experiences living for many years in Banff. She was a wealth of knowledge and helpful when we were deciding what to do each day. Would definitely stay there again.
