“Great place to stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2010

Vic and Barb were wonderful hosts, very helpful and accomodating.
We had the smaller room which was comfortable. Private bathroom is just down the hall.
There is a nice lounge area for guests of both rooms. With having the lounge area it made the smaller bedroom fine as you did not have to live in there. The lounge had a small fridge and microwave which was very nice. Location was also great! Very quiet area and yet close enough you can easily walk to downtown Banff. There is a hot breakfast each morning which were very tasty and such a treat to start out the day that way. Private entrance which was nice as you did not feel like you were bothering the hosts when you came and went. We would recommend this B & B as it is a very good price and a pleasure to stay there. Thanks to Vic and Barb for making our stay with you so enjoyable.

A lovely B&B at the top end of town. Well furnished and very clean rooms. Excellent breakfast. Hosts make you feel at home and are very knowledgeable about the area. Top value for Banff.

Great location as it is within walking distrance for the centre of Banff. We used this Bed And Breakfast as a base for a four day stay and it was ideal. We found Barbara and Vic very welcoming and knowledgeable about local hikes and sights as well as the night life in Banff.

My husband and I stayed at Wit’s End for 3 nights in July and enjoyed it very much. The B&B is located in an ideal spot in Banff. Most of the hotels are located north of the downtown and as a result, that area tends to be crowded and has the potential to be noisy. At Wit’s End is located just across the Bow River in a section of town where many of the permanent residents live. It was a short and lovely walk down town through the Administrative gardens and across the bridge. We stayed in one of the two en-suite rooms and it was very spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and the hosts were very knowledgeable about the area and made several helpful suggestions. I would highly recommend this B&B.

This b and b is very good and is located close to the centre of town . We had a huge room ( very quiet) with its own en suite. There is a big guest lounge where you are free to make coffee and chat to other guests.

Vic and Barbara are terrific hosts who have lived in Banff for a long time and are very knowledgable and helpful.

The breakfasts are very good - fresh fruit and scrambled eggs and hash browns.

As we had to leave very early before breakfast on our final morning Barbara made us ham rolls with a drink and biscuits to eat on our way to the airport which was most appreciated.

Stayed here for a night after we arrived a day late due to airport issues in the UK. We were only charged for one night, which was very kind after we'd booked for 2. The room itself wasn't large, but we had our own bathroom which was very nice across the hall, and there was a large lounge area shared between the three rooms, which was spacious and had lots of useful information. It can feel intrusive in some B&Bs to sit out in the lounge area if that's where the family sit, but this felt more like our space, and had tea and coffee facilities, which was good and not always guaranteed everywhere.

Barbara and Vic were very welcoming hosts. The rooms were very comfortable with very nice bathrooms. There is a well stocked guests lounge. The rooms have their own entrance under the main house. People with mobility problems might have a little difficulty with the steps.
This was a great introduction to the quality of Canadian B&Bs . Barbara's breakfasts are particularly good with different omelets every day and scones.
The B&B is well situated in a quiet area, but an easy walking distance from the town.
