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.

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.

We undertook two planned hikes. The first was the …
... and a hearty thumbs down. All I could do is shudder in apprehension and pray for God in His mercy to bestow upon me a proper bathroom. One with a toilet that didn’t look like a bucket with a hole that went down eight feet and was filled with the worst that humanity has to offer. Oh, and maybe a sink. With soap. Such was not to be my luck that day and at the next breathtaking overlook, I held my breath and tried to handle it like the mature adult I am. ...
... I saw Willo and her group so told her I just had to dash upstairs which I did. Quickly put my thermal pants on and back down. Couldn't find Jaqi and our group so stayed with Willo. I'd forgotten my hat and thought I'd be ok with coat hood but Jaqi sent me back up for a hat. Talk about all the running around. At that stage I wasn't looking forward to the ice-walk.
Got out to Johnston Canyon and strapped on our cleates and headed off in two groups. I ...

When I was paying for my new hat (or toque as the say here - pronounced too-k) I overheard a guy in the shop asking about the hike up to the plain of six glaciers. Being only slightly concerned that I might look like a weirdo, I went over and asked him if he was on his own and would he like a hiking buddy. To my pleasant surprise he said he was and he would, what a great idea. I ...
... the surface. AJ and BJ looked off to the right and noticed a long line of beautiful black horses. The horses were four abreast with one horse on its own at the head of the column. Sitting straight up on each of the horses were men and women all dressed in a very impressive uniform composed of black trousers with a wide yellow stripe down each leg, a very smart red coat, and a broad rimmed hat on their heads. They heard the Daddy and his friends talking about ...
