“Local and relaxed holiday in Banff- a home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Friendly owner, Pascal,greeted us on arrival and even had our room ready for us even though we were extremely early! After a 12 hour overnight bus journey, we were delighted to have access to our bedroom! We stayed in a room with a queen size bed and single bed, the rooms were very cosy with TV and WiFi! Pascal spent time with us explaining and drawing out the local hikes for us! An employee named Em was very helpful to us too and had a lovely breakfast spread ready for us the next morning! Home made cookies and kitchen access with tea, coffee and hot chocolate made our stay in the lodge feel like a home from home! I would highly recommend staying here!

The girls who work there are nice, but the place itself does not accord with the writeup. Our room is tiny and one could barely fit into the shower stall - we are quite small girls to begin with! Would not stay there again for th

The welcome by all the staff is excellent and very friendly.The boss knows very well the region and gives excellent advice on all actifiviés it is possible to do. We had problems with our rental car and he came with us to the agency for help.
Thank you for everything and we look forward to returning.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful. The breakfast is very good.

The place is nice and quiet. The rooms are quite small, but clean and decent.
The service is very good, the hosts are very friendly. Breakfasts are not the strongest thing in this hotel, but still ok: fresh coissants, which are really good, apples, boiled eggs, yogurt, toasts, jam, 2 % milk, cereals, tea and coffee. Not a wide selection of food but still you can find something to eat.
Location is a real advantage of this place - just in 3 minutes of walk from the center, but quiet, easy to reach everything.
Parking lot: not enough room for all guests, but we parked easily near the hotel.
On the whole I recommend this place to travellers who are not very fastidious about their food and size of their rooms.

First of all, the most outstanding feature is the helpfulness and kindness of the staff! Thank you for giving good advice on where to go for a scenic drive or walk.
As far as the room and breakfast service is concerned, we were disappointed. The room was too small, hardly any space left to put your baggage/ jackets or to move past each other, the shower/toilet was tiny and breakfast quite simple. If you like home-made croissants or muffins for breakfast, maybe you'll be happier, but I could do without it and have a greater choice of other stuff instead (I fully agree with what JuniperSpring wrote here before). Also, the breakfast room was rather cold and there was no service, which had the charm of a hostel instead of B&B.
Of the side-streets in Banff, Cariboo Rd is still rather busy and many (loud) people came walking by at night or cars were passing. As we were staying in the room on the ground floor with the only window facing to the front, we woke up several times due to that noise. The room was not looked after, the little garbage bin in the toilet not emptied, even on the third day (of course we got a new bag when WE brought it to the reception desk, but that's not the point, is it?).
All in all you can argue that Banff during summer is very expensive and you get what you pay for; and if you have never been to that area or to Banff, the endless patience of the staff for their guests asking questions, seeking advice up to the point of needing guidance to almost every single aspect of their stay, Blue Mountain Lodge is the place to be. But if I had planned a little earlier than beginning of July (for August) I might have gotten something better. Our last stay in Banff 10 yrs ago in another B&B was definetely better.

It was really nice! We had a really nice welcoming and the recommendation where to go in Banff where great.
If we go to Banff again we come here. The breakfast is okay but the service make it perfect.
The rooms are small but the house is a 100 years old take care that you tell them how tall you are :-).
Or it maybe get a little tight.
Thanks for the great time.

If you want to have a great time in Banff and meet nice people who like to share their passion of the area, you couldn't find a better place !
Pascal, Pauline and Thea will be there for you !

The B&B looks like a family house, where everything is friendly and easy.
breakfast is good, with homemade croissant and very good muffins.
The rooms are not very big, but cosy and well decorated. I advise you to choose the cowboy bungalow where you can discover with fun the cowboy spirit which is all around the city !

But the best for you is just to try it yourself, so go for it !!

A Banff lover ;)
