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.

Banff is a vibrant alpine town with a mining town heritage.
The current town is not the site of the original Banff but that is another story.
There is plenty of accommodation to suit all budgets and preferences as well as eateries and shopping.

... bear was HUGE, as in scarily huge – massively powerful shoulders and enormous claws that gleamed out at us from the photo. He is so famous that everyone in the area simply knows him by his designated number; bear 122. Fingers crossed we don’t come across him!!
The lake wasn’t always so popular. Known originally as Devil’s Lake, people tended to steer clear of it because it was rumoured to have monsters in ...
... were all pretty knackered by this stage but we figurdd we better keep going otherwise we would be out for the count. We jumped on the local bus to the Sulphur Mountain Hot Springs. Ahhhh so relaxing! By this stage the weather had cooled off a little and the breeze had picked up. Perfect for lazing in 40° natural hot springs. The spring were really busy. I can imagine it would be super busy in the ...
... and the lake itself. Another stunning view was duly provided here too, as it was surrounded by 10 different mountains within the Rocky range (which may be something to do with the valley it's in being called 'Valley of the Ten Peaks').
We didn't stay here for long as we were getting hungry, so after a few photos and a quick look in the (ridiculously overpriced) gift shop, we went to Lake Louise Village in search of good food. The girl in tourist information ...
... laying winter snow adorn the granite mountains making them a site to see. Our first scenic lookout point was right across Fairmont Hotel, what a stunning fort like hotel, of course it's expensive but this hotel is right above the Bow River. After some picture taking we parked the car and did some strolling down Banff Ave Town is pretty warm and very inviting. We did some window shopping and settled in a local trattoria for some delicious Italian food. It ...
