Great wedding venue: excellent food, especially breakfast and picnic basket lunches. Bride and groom wanted food from many varied locations they had lived, and B&B came through! We also needed a babysitter at short notice (same day) and owner arranged this.

We spent a night here on March 9th, very clean, well put together place. The owner is very friendly and caters to the needs of his guests. They upgraded is for free to the honeymoon room. Breakfast was great, brought right into the room. We will return for sure. I recommend a stay here to anyone.

Fabulous place that catered to every need and whim of the bride and groom. From special Mexican after ceremony to a to a wonderful buffet style morning after breakfast. The host put no undue pressure or urgency on any part of the gathering.

This little hotel has such a rustic European style. The employees were welcoming and friendly and their breakfast was delicious. We would highly recommend this hotel when travelling to Banff & Canmore! It's perfect for a weekend get away for couples.
