When we were looking for accommodation, I found the Bed & Breakfast site for Canada.
This is an excellent site that covers the whole of Canada.
All the listing's have been checked and approved.
On our road trip around British Columbia and Alberta, we stayed at B&B's booked through this site for the whole journey, and we never struck a bad one.
They were cheaper than other accommodation, we stayed in some of the most beautiful home's with fantastic view's, and best of all, we met some really lovely owner's who were as interested in us and where we came from, as we were of them.
It was our first time of B&Bing, and definately not our last after the wonderful time we had!
After some exploring at Drumheller we arrived late to Calgary and had a bit of trouble locating accommodation in the city centre. We decided on the Port o Call although unlike most Best Westerns it didn't have kitchen facilities OR a free breakfast. There were several eating options on site but not necessarily at the lower end of the price scale.
We had an awesome room on the 7th floor and the staff were exeptionally friendly and helpful and there were numerous facilities including free wifi. There were a few fast food restaurants in walking distance and a free shuttle to the airport. We walked (1-2km) to the train station to go to the Zoo but taxis to the city were about $20.
This would be an option if we returned to Calgary.
A wonderfully honest and welcoming host in a location that is outside of town and extremely quiet yet close to the airport. Free wifi and our room had everything we needed including microwave and fridge, TV, pool table and more. Definitely recommended.
We did have well water which may be a consideration for some. The food is fabulous.
We were travelling from Banff to Edmonton and stopped for the night in Jasper at the Best Western. It was another 2 storey room with a kitchen and balcony with an okay view. There were gardens and a restaurant on site but we bought food to prepare in our room. The distance to downtown could be walked but isn't overly close. Whilst this room was nothing flash it had everything we needed and if I was in Jasper I would consider staying here once more. Free wifi.
Very comfortable. This hotel is within about a 2 km walk of downtown Banff slight up toward Tunnel Mountain. We had a 2 story room with a full kitchen and a great view out on our balcony. The waterslide, shop, laundry, parking, etc means that anything a family, couple or single could need is provided. Free wifi also. I definitely recommend this accommodation and will stay here again if I visit Banff once more.
When we drove in for the first time there was a herd of Elk within metres of our car. That was exciting for 2 Aussies.
For my 5-night stay, all the hotel staff with whom I interacted provided great service. The food was very nice. I regret not getting into the exercise area, pool, or hot pool area.
Pretty easy walking distance to downtown Canmore.
Great small B & B. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Within a short walk to town, just above the river. Very nicely renovated. Would definitely recommend!
Nice, clean hotel with modern aethestic. Located in Old Strathcona, central to many restaurants and pubs. Great for nightlife, though parking is a bit of hassle since it's all valet and takes 15-20 minutes to get your car. Definitely enjoy the later afternoon wine tasting - great starter to the evening!
We had some trouble deciding on where to stay in Banff. We wanted something clean and relaxing and a decent price. We opted for the newly completed Fox Inn and Suites on the main drag coming in to Banff from the southeast. Just completed in June of 07, we still had some workman to maneuver around but it wasn't a problem. With everything brand new, we enjoyed the stay at the attractive stone facade structure. The unique hot tub area was not yet open but will be a popular spot for this hotel. The in house Chili's restaurant was a nice amenity and they served a delightful complementary continental breakfast. Prices are steep everywhere so if you're going to pay over $200 this is a nice place and an easy walk to town in the evening. While the rooms were quiet for the most part, request a room without an adjoining door if they are available. That was the only downside to the hotel in that the adjoining doors seemed paper thin. We would definitely stay here again.
Check out their unique hot tub/jacuzzi area. It is located on the basement level with an open ceiling to the sky above.
Although we had arranged to arrive rather early (to explore the badlands and hoodoos around Drumheller) the welcome was not very warm and it seemed if we were not expected at all.
Our (air-conditioned) room was spacious and had a good bed. We had a shared bathroom and it is no problem if you have to wait on the other guests. But if the same happened when we wanted our breakfast it is rather strange. It seemed if this B&B served only one breakfast at once; a little bit frustrating if you have to travel a lot that day.
The B&B is located very close (walkable distance) to the city centre and restaurants in a very quiet neighbourhood
The most charming part of this B& b are the beautiful and flowering gardens with fountains and ponds. A perfect place to relax in the Canadian sun and to read a (travel) book.
After a long flight from the Netherlands we didn't like to phone the hotel for the three shuttle bus and decided to go by a regular taxi. Just for a couple of km's we had to pay CAD 25,-
The hotel looked (a little bit) outdated, didn't smell too fresh and the rooms were rather small.
Located outside the city you 'only' can walk around and also in the hotel is not much to do. You may understand we were not very satisfied.
Breakfast (buffet) was good, but rather expensive.
We took the free shuttle bus back to the airport to pick up our rental car.
Be aware, they do have just one shuttle bus and it may take soem time before you can leave to the airport.
With a map of Edmonton on my lap and turning left and right many times we reached Catchick’s Bed & Breakfast. After unpacking we made a chat with our host Tony Catchick and it turned out he had worked in a milk factory in our hometown Apeldoorn in the Netherlands.
If you don’t like a cooked breakfast better tell it Tony the night before, otherwise you will get your baked potatoes and eggs and … on your plate the next morning. We just could save a pot of tea.
We didn’t have to worry about our payment, because our host charged automatically our credit card.
The main reason to choose for Catchick’s was its location very close to the West Edmonton Mall. And indeed it was just 1 minute drive.
We were here for a brief stay when some friends invited us to their wedding, which was held here. The hotel facilities were excellent.
Though we did not have a room with a lake view, we did have a view of the nearby mountains.
One of the best Hostels for wilderness stays in western Canada. Has everything from male/female dorms to private family rooms. Kitchen facilities and livingroom. We have stayed there numerous times with and without our children. Open year round. Facilities for cross country skiing and ice climbing in the winter and a hiking a fisherman's paradise from April til November. Abraham Lake is located west of Nordegg and offers spectacular fishing for Rainbow Trout and Steelheads 6-12 lbs.
Serentiy and peace of mind. All electric and water facilities available for cooking and washing.
What a dream this place is. A day's hike from the main highway through Banff National Park brings you to the lodge. Each party is assigned their own cabin. Breakfast and dinner are provided. You can pack a sack lunch for your day's excursion. Cabins were very comfortable. Ours has a splendid king size bed! Outstanding food. We are vegetarians and each day the cook would prepare a special dinner for us far better than I can usually find in my hometown. Great hiking opportunities. Hot showers available in an adjacent building.
