“Utterly awesome.”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

This is the perfect place to stay. I cannot praise it highly enough.
We were welcomed and looked after all week. The breakfasts were stunning and the house is beautiful. We chose this as the location for the first week of our honeymoon and we will always remember it fondly.
We were treated to mountain walks and disc golf by Dave which I can highly recommend.
Go there, really, it's a must!
Can't wait to come back!

We chose this B&B because some friends of us went there 2 years ago and recommended the place to us. It was the best decision we could make! The breakfast was fantastic, handmade by Sue every morning, while Dave prepared some recommendations for us about what to do this day. Both of them made us feel as if we were staying with friends and not at a B&B. The house itself is very comfortable and cosy, our room was not too big but also very nice and comfortable. The pity is that this place is so far away from Europe, but we are already saving money to be able to return soon!

This was our second stay at Ambleside, having visited 6 years previously. It was just as enjoyable as our first trip and Dave set out a great drive into Kannaskis for us - never saw the moose but did get to almost shake hands (paws) with a big grizzly. Great food and we can recommend this as a place to stay when in the Banff / Canmore area.

I have travelled all around the world and stayed at many bed and breakfasts, Ambleside Lodge has made it to my top 3. My sister and I were planning a little getaway together and found this b&b on the internet, it turned out to be everything we expected and more! The ambiance is warm and welcoming, the views breathtaking, rooms are clean and comfortable, and the breakfasts are just wonderful! Sue and Dave are wonderful hosts, it is very easy to just sit back with a glass of wine or a cup of hot chocolate and get caught up in a conversation. There is plenty to do in Canmore and Banf, if you didn't do your research before arriving no worries, whether it is where to go, what to do, what to see, where to eat......just ask Sue or Dave!

The title says it all! The 3 course breakfasts were stunning to look at and tasted even better! And if we couldn't manage the third course we were provided with a packed treat to savour during the day. Sue and Dave are lovely, genuinely warm people who share their home and their knowldege of the area with grace and generosity. I would not hesitate in recommending Ambleside Lodge and congratulate them on making our first few days very enjoyable indeed.

Room Tip: Both Wilderness and CPR are great rooms.

Very nice B&B, lovely hosts, clean & comfortable room. Breakfast was wonderful, with the homemade scones & muffins to take away if you didn't have room after the other two courses. Dave was particularly helpful with his itinerarys of all the best to see in & around Canmore & Banff National Park.

The Ambleside Lodge was our first B&B during our holiday in Canada and we were spoiled from the beginning!

Sue's breakfasts were amazing and extremely delicious! It’s no punishment to wake up with the smell of fresh scones and muffins in the morning…

Our room (CPR) was very convenient and clean. We felt right at home, as well in our room as in the entire B&B.

Sue and Dave are terrific hosts; they provided us with loads of suggestions and even a Dutch route description for sightseeing in the neighbourhood. We also could borrow towels for our visit to the hot springs.

The location is also perfect; Canmore is a cosy town, located at walking distance from the lodge and nearby Banff.

We certainly can recommend this B&B to everyone and will definitely come back if we get the chance.
