Tuxedo House B&B
Ranked #6 of 57 Calgary B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Glen was a gem, friendly, helpful and a good cook. Tuxedo House is beautiful, it's rooms are perfectly presented and its facilities including a lounge with tea and coffee are excellent. When you have just spent 14 hours travelling Tuxedo House and Glen are an oasis of calm after all that stress. Well done and thank you Glen. John and Valerie, England

One cannot wish to have a better host than Glenn, owner and host of Tuxedo House. We spent one night late August 2012 and we were amazed at the attention to detail and eagerness to please on the part of Glenn. All questions were answered patiently and humorously! The B&B is like home from home and everything is meticulous and absolutely spotless. Even though guests have to share a bathroom, one did not get the impression anyone else were using the facilities despite all rooms fully booked on the night we stayed. Breakfast was amazing. A real feast blending fresh and home made cooking.

With Glen the landlord waiting on the porch as we arrived, my first impression of Canadian hospitality, fantastic!
We were shown to our room, which was a lovely cool basement flat, fully equipt and very comfortable.
Glen is a true gent and excellent host and he was very helpful with advise for the stampede etc. The bus for town is easily taken a stones throw from the B&B.
Breakfast surpassed our expectations, immaculately presented and scrumptious! We stayed for three nights and had a different b/fast each day.
Lovely garden to relax. Would highly recommend a stop here.

Room Tip: If the basement room(suite) is available, then book it if you need to cool down after a hot day in c...

Tuxedo House was the last stop in our journey from Vancouver, and we had a great time there. Glen was very accommodating about the time of arrival (what time do you want to get here?) and his welcome was very warm. Within minutes he had us laughing - he is witty and perceptive with a real talent for putting guests of all ages at ease.

We had a double room and a twin on the first floor. These share a beautifully appointed bathroom with another double, but this wasn't a problem because each of the rooms has a washbasin. There were nice touches like having a stock of bathmats so each guest could have their own. There was also a bright and airy sitting area on the same floor as the bedrooms, with a kitchenette for making drinks. Our bedrooms were furnished well, and the beds were extremely comfortable.

Our breakfast (juice, fresh fruit, cereals, scrambled eggs, toast and preserves) was served downstairs, and we were joined by Glen and his other guest. We stayed talking long after we had eaten - and he brought a smile to our faces once again.

This B&B is beautifully located in a peaceful neighborhood. The garden is nice and offers a great place to relax. The rooms I’ve seen are comfortable, clean and spacious and the beds are good. Apart from your own room and the garden, the house also offers a nice common room, with a comfy sofa.
Glen is an excellent host, who makes you feel welcome and can provide you with lots of tips and all the help you may wish. His breakfasts are simple but great and his homemade jam with fruit from his own garden is delicious.

When driving to the area beware of the low speed limits enforced by cameras. Also, you need a parking pass to park on the street. Glen provided that. Locally, we found plenty of local places to dine. Our room was clean and spacious. The shared bathroom was large and clean, too. Every morning Mr. Grey served us with a large hot breakfast. We would return.
