So loved being at Along River Ridge. The rooms are big and cozy and have every amenity you can think of. The hosts are wonderful caring people who go out of their way to make sure that your stay is memorable. The breakfasts were wonderful, offering a lot of variety. We will definitely return again and again. Very good value for our money!!! Luv you both lots!

Room Tip: Go for the King size bed! it is truly the best sleep I have had. The room is bright and spacious and...

This B&B is on the river and offers a peaceful setting and view, the breakfast was very good and the hosts very helpful. The bedrooms were clean, but the ensuite was separated by a curtain, which we found less that private, but besides that it was decent value. They also offered a pool table, hot tub and tea and coffee amenities.

Although the bedrooms and bathrooms were a little small, for the most part it was a wonderful place to stay. The view from the back yard is spectacular, certainly not what one would expect to find in the middle of a big city. The breakfast each day was delicious and beautifully presented. Lots to choose from including hot and cold cereals, yogurt, breads, fresh fruit and a delightful hot entree every morning...something that is hard to find in Canadian B and B's. The entree was always something different each day, and we looked forward to that. Merrill and Diane were very accommodating and helpful with ideas of where to eat dinner and how to get around. Since our rooms were in the basement, sometimes it was hard to fall asleep because we could hear noise from above us, but eventually it quieted down, and the beds were very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this establishment as a reasonable and comfortable place to stay with plenty to do (everything from a pool table to a hot tub).

Room Tip: The floral room downstairs had more space. Hardly any space to open suitcases except on the bed in...

Bedroom seemed to have all the amenities I might possibly need, as did the two common rooms (hot tub, pool table, fireplace, games, books, internet, coffee/tea, & more). The deck overhanging the Bow River is just lovely. Breakfast was great (bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, dry cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese, coffee/tea, orange juice & maybe some other things I've forgotten). Hosts were pleasant people that I think I would like to know better.

i have been to other bnbs in calgary and trough b.c. and alberta and this one is the best breakfast by far..lots of variety.... hostess was attentiv..e asked if we wanted more,,
, 3 layer tall fruit and pastries presentation ,,able to ac tually cook an egg soft boiled and edible scrambled eggs that were not hallf raw as others have ...some only serve 1-2
small pancakes with a tiny fruit cup or 1 item like oatmeal...this breakfast would last you until late afternoon..if you like a bnb to actually serve a real breakfast this is it...i am so tired of going to fancy bnbs to only receive small undecooked food with distant /cold hosts
- we stayed in a room with jacuzi and steam room
-great directions downtown
nice mall close by restaurants
lots and lots of space at bnb to find a corner if want to get out of room for a change of scenery
-feel you are in country... beautiful rivrer view from breakfast table
felt at home here that we were not intuding and free to go anywhere to lounge around
attentive hosts who are not indifferent or overbearing
a true bnb great food great bed great hospitality
an example to all others

We got the room at the front of the house with the kingsize bed, hot tub, steam shower, flat screen tv, dvd player. It was a place of luxury and it was super clean. The breakfast was delicious, they provided many fruits, eggs, different types of toast -- it was a lot! The hosts were very friendly. I would definitely go back. It is definitely worth the money.

Stayed here during Stampede week. 20 minutes or so on transit system, station was only around 5/6 minutes from B&B,

Merrill & Diane and very good hosts, and were very informative about the area. We had the new suite at the front of the house, and it was wonderful and quiet. Breakfast - very good and varied plenty things to eat. Good position along the rive - pity we didn't have the time to enjoy it with our busy schedule.

Would recommend this - much better than being in the city AND better then being in a hotel
