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.
Tunnel Mountain Trail
We undertook two planned hikes. The first was the …
... so cool that they let me be so close to them, just a couple of metres away. It was an amazing moment.
I left them to it and carried on down the trail. Something started squeaking and again it was time to investigate. I found a ground squirrel in a tree at just about eye height. Cute little thing had a poorly eye. He was quite happy for us to stand and look (or squint in his case) at each other for a while but he wasn't a fan of photographs and ran ...
... but had second thoughts as we drove up. by the time I got there I wish I had... Spoke with an Egyptian chap who was a limo driver and who'd previously worked at the la di dah Fairmont. He'd moved 20 yrs ago and fell in love with the place so stayed. Walking uphill would warm me up quick enough ........ I couldn't walk fast enough to warm up, my hands were freezing and so was my face. There was a restaurant at the top and then outside a boardwalk meandering up to a lookout. ...
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th We left for our trip to Banff at 12:30 p.m., expecting it would take the afternoon to arrive in Banff, a mere one hour from Lake Louise, because we would be making stops at falls and lakes along the way. Although the weather in Lake Louise was rainy this morning, it was expected to clear by afternoon and by our arrival at our hotel, the Banff International. I must admit that while our weather has not been bad, it has not ...
... we see the beauty of the Victoria Glacier and Lake Louise. The setting of the Fairmont Lake Louise Chateau is truly magical. It's lunchtime and as the weather is a tad cold and we cannot access our rooms yet we take the opportunity to sit in the Lakeview Dining Room for lunch and feeling very decadent as some sun comes through the window, we stay there for a couple of hours indulging in the breathtaking view from this best of all lunchtime ...
