“good location, bkfast & rms, but think can get better value for money elsewhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2007

To be honest, we didn't really feel that welcome when we arrived at Mountain B & B (I felt that perhaps Lynne wasn't in a good mood the day that we arrived).

The decor in the room that we stayed in was nice and the common areas are kept very tidy. We were told that if you are staying in the Norquay room (facing Muskrat Street), you may need to shut the windows at night because there can be noise coming from the street and sounds travel at night.

The breakfast was nice. Breakfast is self-serve. Lynne offered different hot items each day that we stayed. You get a few choices of cereal, fresh fruit/fruit salad, bread and condiments for the bread and one hot item (like scones and waffles). Lynne has a lot of quality literature available to guests to use regarding the area and we (and the other guests) found that useful during the time of our stay. Lynne has good knowledge of the area as well, so for those who don't know the area, she is a good source of knowledge.

Lynne has strict rules with regards to shoes in that you must take off your shoes in her place. Also, Lynne is very strict about breakfast times. From my experience, she will only serve breakfast between certain times during the peak season. I am not sure whether she is more accommodating during the off season.

The decor is nice, location is central and breakfast is nice, so if you are looking for above average accommodation, you will get it here. However, if you are really wanting value for money and from our experience someone who will go out of the way to really help you, I don't feel that you really get it here.

An unforgettable experience.We arrived late (9.30pm)with appologies to Lynne who was very gracious about it,were shown to the Norquay room which was beautiful and had a good night's sleep on a very comfortable bed.Breakfast was a choice of cereals,toast,delicious home made jams or special home made cooked items(and Lynne is a very good cook).It is about a five minute walk to the town and easy to avoid the present roadworks on the main street if you wish to travel further afield.We booked the accomodation over the internet so did not really know what to expect,but we enjoyed our six nights there and have no hesitation in recomending it to anyone wishing a more intimate,reasonably priced B&B.

We stayed for 2 nights in July 2005 in this very comfortable B&B. The rooms were all immaculate with huge beds. Lynne (hostess) was welcoming and very informative of what to do and where to eat in the area. The only problem was trying to get to check in within the restricted check in times (we we 20mins late, but Lynne was v. understanding!).

Her breakfasts were great, lots of choice and a continual supply delicious blueberry pancakes!

It is located 5 mins from the town centre, so perfect location if you want a night out in town.

The facility is about a block off the river and Banff Avenue. Spotless (take shoes off) and very comfortable. Breakfast was pleasant and more than filling.
Would stay here again. Book early. Oh, dinner at Georgio's was brilliant.

Stayed May 2005
