“A very relaxing place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2010

I am not sure why this place does not get more reviews. Consistent with other reviewers, this place is very comfortable, clean, spacious and welcoming. The owner Karen is very warm and welcoming. She provides a great variety of breakfast items including home baked bread. Her complimentary laundry service was such a help to us as we have been travelling for nearly 3 weeks with about 4 days to go.The place has a separate entrance so you do not feel you are disturbing the owners. There is only the one self-contained accommodation so no other guests to disturb either. The owner is relaxed and trusting- lots of towels, toilet rolls etc at your disposal. However, clearly you only use what is needed. There is a fridge and microwave so we were able to bring cold drinks, snacks and on the evening we arrived, we nipped to a local store, got some grub and chilled in the accommodation. Lots of reading material, maps and even a CD player is provided. We found this place to be value for money and we found Jasper much nicer and less touristy than Banff. If we ever came to Jasper, we would stay here again and give Banff a miss.

A one room B&B with self catering facilities. The two room flatlet on the ground floor is completely self contained with its own entrance and consists of comfortable lounge, kitchen/breakfast bar, bedroom and spacious bathroom.

Hostess Karen provides a delicious breakfast of fresh fruits, juice, home made yogurt and home made bread delivered daily. The kitchen is well stocked with teas, coffee, and cereals.

Located in the residential outskirts of Jasper, transport is essential to go downtown - a little too far to walk comfortably. Karen can advise on the local restaurants - a visit to the Bears Paw coffee shop is a must. Fiddle River and Something Else restaurants can be recommended.

Plenty of great excursions, walks and hikes from Jasper. Maligne Canyon beautiful. Columbia Icefield an hour away. Mt Robson in BC is also an hour away through the Yellow Head pass with stunning scenery and a great walk (hike) up to Kinney lake and beyond.

Highly recommended

This B&B accommodation consists of a ground floor flat in a house on a very quiet street in an affluent area of Jasper where we received a very warm welcome.

The large, well furnished main room had two settees, armchair, desk and chair, breakfast bar and comfortable bed. There was a microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge and coffeemaker with a good asortment of good quality cutlery, crockery etc. There was a good supply of books and magazines plus local maps and guides.

The large, pleasant bathroom was very well supplied with good towels, but the good shower was very tight for a manly sixfooter. A complimentary laundry service was also offered.

Materials are supplied for a self-serve continental breakfast and these were of good quality featuring a lot of home-made stuff.

There was an outside sitting area under cover in a small, secluded garden.

Cleanliness was of a high standard.

Wireless internet was fast. Parking was on street but presented no problems.

This was a quiet, convenient, comfortable place in which we spent four nights and can thoroughly recommend to others.

Columbine House, Patricia Street, Jasper.

Columbine House was one of a myriad of B&Bs in Jasper, where it seemed nearly every other private house was open for business. If there is a better one in Jasper, it must be very good.

With private entry from the road, our room/suite was on the ground floor of a timber house in a suburban street. L-shaped, the room was really well appointed, and spotlessly clean. The large sitting area had two big comfy couches, and what we thought was the world’s largest collection of guidebooks to Jasper and the Rockies. The kitchen area could hardly have been any smaller – but that’s a really minor quibble, and certainly not enough to put anyone off. The bathroom, however, was plenty big enough for two at the same time, and stacked with towels for use, if wanted, at Miette Springs.

In other B&Bs, we experienced a lot more interaction with the owners, notably at breakfast time. For some strange reason Jasper by-laws prohibit B&Bs providing cooked breakfasts, so there was none of that here. Here we only spoke to Karen on arrival and departure and one or two other times briefly, and merely heard others in the house, and their late-night dishwasher. We realised we were no more than paying visitors, a nice little earner for the rest of the household. If that’s what you like, this would be perfect for you.

Having said that, Karen was friendly and welcoming. Her provisions for continental were extensive, with beautiful home-baked bread, home-made yogurt, and the widest variety of cereals and drink sachets we’d ever seen.

All in all, a very good place to stay, and especially recommended for those who like to be left alone
