Stayed for a month in four different rooms. Some rooms are better than others, but they all had their pros and cons. All showers were a little small. Free breakfast was great. Staff and owners were very kind. Right next to downtown (1 minute walk to Banff Avenue with all sorts of stores, restaurants and bars). Very cheap for location and private rooms.

... It was also crystal clear and you could see all the way to the bottom. There was a lone canoe on the lake and I tried to catch it in a few shots just to give some sense of scale which you lose in photos. It all seems so tiny when reduced to an image on a screen.

... much it is ok.
Arrived at Lake Louise and had a group photo taken before going to dinner 40 minutes later at a German/Swiss restaurant that had an amazing view of the Lake Louise and the glacier that sits above the lake.
The food was very nice but different and apparently the Swiss like fondues and traditionally have fondues at Christmas time.
... They were turned on, and were watering the whole block - house, garden, driveway and all. We don't think the words "water wise" have entered British Columbia's vocabulary yet, despite a very dry summer, and water restrictions in some towns.
We arrived at the most awesome body of water - Lake Shuswap - it's apparently "H" shaped, with around 500km of lake shore, much of the water edge covered by holiday homes and ...
... over six Rocky Mountain ranges was breathtaking - pretty cold out on the balcony but well worth it.
This afternoon, we travelled along the Trans-Canada Highway through the lush forest of Banff National Park to Moraine Lake, a glacially-fed lake in the Valley of the Ten Peaks. We were extremely lucky that the weather was fine as often this lake is cloud covered. A climb to the lookout was certainly worth the effort. It was mind-blowing - so beautiful ...
