We are not B&B people and normally stay in hotels. We have had some less than satisfactory experiences in B&Bs previously.
When we looked at Banff and originally booked at 2 night stay, the Banff Boutique Inn looked OK and ticked the boxes that we needed while we were travelling for 5 weeks: Breakfast Included, Free WiFi, Parking, Close to amenities.
We got all of this and more...
At short notice we cancelled the jasper leg of our trip due to inclement weather and they were able to fit us in for 4 nights.
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment in the coachouse and had a great time.
The breakfast is basic but plenitful and like so many other places we have stayed at, you have to be inventive with your brekky combinations. I reality there are more options than we would normally have at home.
The owners and the staff were very helpful and took the time to give us advice, hints and tips for the local area and also nearby areas such as Johnston Falls and even Lake Louise.
We would stay there again and recommend this to others staying in Banff.

There is plenty of accommodation to suit all budgets and preferences as well as eateries and shopping.

After dinner we went to the lobby for the end of Christmas carols. They were passing out hot chocolate. Karen suggested I add my Baileys to that, which I did, and it was very ...
... to choose from so took a photo of four pair for her to choose from.
We then went across the road to Tony Roma's for dinner, went online and chatted again and she suggested we try for a deal if we bought two pair but decided on one if that didn't work. Went back to shop and tried but the girl said she couldn't do deals without approval from her boss. She tried to ring boss but no answer so just bought the one pair.
We then caught bus back to ...
... t work and then we thought we could hear the TV on, so we knocked and a lady answered. They had given us an already occupied room. The lady rang the front desk and they told me that they had us down for a different room number. They apologised and said they would meet us at the correct room and give us the correct card keys. The fellow helping us was an Aussie named Cam and he was most helpful as we asked him a few other questions about booking dinner. When ...
... of rest and enjoying the views, we headed down and the hike down took us only about 1.5 hours. Then we observed the ground squirrels for a bit, but most of them were hiding already. Finally, we returned to the parking lot and drove to our next destination.
The second destination of the day was Moraine Lake, another glacially-fed lake near Lake Louise. It is surrounded by ten tall mountain ...
