“Clean, comfortable, efficient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2007

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of two weeks in the rockies. The hotel is on a busy road in Canmore and is pseudo English country pub in style.

Check In - efficient but not exactly welcoming. We had stayed places that were much friendlier and it does make a big difference to the overall impression of a place.

Room - We had a large suite with a jacuzzi bath. The kids had a twin down the hall. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable with all the amenities you could want after a day hiking, fridge, TV , hairdryer etc. However, no air con - which makes it very stuffy in summer. Its also noisy when the windows are open. The hotel also has laundry facilities for guests - which for us was ideal as we were travelling light. The kids room was cramped but fine also.

Food - We had fish and chips in the bar. The fish was nice but the chips were burnt - although this seemed to be a feature of chips in this part of Canada so I guess we can't blame the hotel!
The big disappointment was breakfast - a cold buffet! If you want bacon and eggs you need to go elsewhere.

The hotel is more suited to older people but it was fine as a base for us as we were out hiking all day in the surrounding area. Canmore has loads of good restaurants so I would eat out rather than in this hotel. I'd recommend the Drake Inn and Murriettas.

We booked the Victoria Room thru the internet. We were disappointed. The fire place is on a timer that your could hear ticking away (not very relaxing). The website mentions lush robes, perhaps a few years ago they were, we found them to be ragged and stiff. The tub however was great, and was clean along with the bathroom. The dinning room was closed during our stay, and the Inn itself seemed like a ghost town.

  • Liked — How clean the bathroom was
  • Disliked — The smell

Once again, we loved our stay at the Georgetown Inn! We won't stay anywhere else while in Canmore! The staff are efficient and friendly, the inn is very charming and wonderfully decorated, the breakfast is fantastic as is the dinner we have had at the pub/restaurant located at the inn. The rooms are extremely clean, nicely decorated, very comfortable, and it has always been a peaceful stay while at the inn! We highly recommend the Georgetown Inn!

We booked an Elizabeth room on the hotel website after reading the good reviews on trip advisor in January. The room was 201 on the front of the hotel, the railway line clearly on view, the room was very small, it was neither glorious or refined, there were no comfortable armchairs as in the picture on the hotel website, the decor was not alluring and elegant, there was one old well worn easy chair and a desk with a hard wooden chair.
We returned to reception straightaway and reported the mistake, we've booked an Elizabeth room with the two comfortable armchairs as in the picture on your website, we were told we had been given an Elizabeth room. We asked to be moved to the room we had booked and were told they were all taken, we explained yes by us, we booked in January, the staff member was polite and gushing but insisted we had the right room and there were no other rooms available. Half an hour later the same staff member appeared at our room with an old easy chair, the springs had gone in the seat, the room was too small really to accommodate this chair, again she was very polite and trying her utmost to appease us..
The room had a fridge and a sink and was very clean, as was the bathroom. If you are a light sleeper you will hear some train noise through the night, a room on the back would have been our choice, if one had been available. All of the staff at the hotel were polite and friendly and as explained above went out of their way to try and accommodate. On returning home we have looked again at the website which confirmed to us that we have definately been duped at the Georgetown

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Canmore but this was despite rather than because of our welcome at the Georgetown Inn. We had perhaps been spoiled by the friendliness off staff elsewhere but we dealt with two people during the majority of our stay and both were disinterested and unhelpful.
Our room was spacious and well decorated but the luxury bathtub caused leaks through to the room below so we only used it once before being phoned by maintenance and asked not to use it again. No-one apologised for our inconvenience at the interruption, or at the fact that we could not use the tub that we had paid extra to treat ourselves with.
The road and railway were fairly close by, but noise was not an issue.
The breakfast looked promising but once again the staff let the side down. The buffet was not replenished (one slice of dry-looking pineapple was all that remained!) and we had to wait for ages before giving in and asking for tea (no-one attempted to ask us if we would like a hot drink). We stayed for four nights and after the first two terrible starts to the day we decided to forgo the free meal and pay for breakfast at a nearby cafe.
Having said all that, we may have been unlucky with our staff (other reviews on this website have been complimentary about the service), On checkout we did actually make a complaint (something we would rarely do) and, to her credit, the lady we dealt with (a new face) was friendly, apologetic and gave us a discounted rate as an apology. Apparently it is notoriously difficult to find and retain staff in Canmore.
We could appreciate what the owners had intended to do with the Georgetown Inn, but our stay fell far short of this ideal.

  • Liked — Spacious, clean room.
  • Disliked — Service, especially at breakfast

Rented a room for my parents so they could visit my husband and I why we were in canada. GREAT room for the money, staff was not very attentive to answer questions, and gave wrong information about transportation. But the accomidations more then make up for staffing issue.

I would highly recommend this hotel/ inn for anyone visiting Canmore. As already said by others, the staff were very friendly, the rooms were very quaint, comfortable and clean. We had a wonderful room facing the street in Canmore with beautiful mountain views and no noise.
The free breakfast in the morning shouldn't be missed. Everything is very well stocked with plenty of hot and cold choices. The fresh fruit was delicious.
Great choice
