We usually stay in cabins when we visit Jasper so can’t say how Miette House compares to other guest houses in the area, but overall impressions were good and the house was neat, well situated and run by very warm and welcoming hosts. Located within easy walking distance from the town centre, the building is a tad featureless, but spotless and well maintained, with a couple of outside tables for guests to enjoy and plenty of parking on the street outside. There are six rooms, four of which are located in the basement, with nos. 1&2 on the ground floor. Ashley welcomed us and showed us to our room (No.1) and urged us to contact her if we needed anything. Although small, our room was clean and perfectly adequate for our needs, coming with a flat screen TV, coffee machine and bathroom with bath. The bed was comfortable and we slept well, though we did hear groups of people walking back along the street late at night and our room was close to the front door which could potentially have been a problem but wasn’t. Guests can also make use of the impeccable kitchen to store or cook their food/meals (no breakfast is provided and they are not licensed to operate an oven, but a microwave is available, as is a large fridge) and a couple of washing/drying machines which come in very handy if you are out hiking. The owners also run a restaurant (and offer a 10% discount to guests) and will store your bags for you if you are away on a multi-day hike. Miette Guest House is an excellent option for those on a restricted budget and provides better value/service than many of Jasper’s cheaper hotels. We highly recommend it.
