This inn is a home to two incredibly modest hosts, Kim and John. I am glad I stayed here as it provided a personal touch to my Calgary visit. The home is a 10 minute bus ride to the downtown business core and in the range of many restaurants to choose. I enjoyed my stay at the Westmount River Inn and have no complaints.

A huge thanks to John and Kim, our gracious bed and breakfast hosts at this lovely inn. We are a 4 person family and appreciated the 2 rooms connected by one bathroom setup, and all the free snacks and hot chocolate for our little ones. This place is truly unique with the master craftsmanship of the woodwork shown throughout the house. The place was very clean and close to everything we needed. We felt well accommodated and well at home.

Our time at the Westmount River Inn was a lovely stay and encounter I believe we were blessed with at the end of our honeymoon... The home faces the river and a view of downtown. hosts of this bed and breakfast were knowledgeable and helpful for our every need. Free parking, water, coffee and tea, and they gave us a free room upgrade on hearing we were on our honeymoon! The place is 10/10 for professionalism, coziness, and cleanliness ... Definitely recommend!

This was not at all what we expected. Unless you can ensure that you will get one of the large, beautiful rooms that are in the pictures...AVOID. We came into the house and had to take off our shoes. We instantly saw that this is a family’s home...personal things everywhere, lots of awkward clutter. We were confused about how the place worked—were we allowed to use the kitchen and living space? Nothing was explained. Going up to the room, we opened the door and were instantly disappointed. It was super cramped. Empty walls with holes where art used to hang, cheap mismatched furniture, and awful blankets (think Holiday Inn, 1992). When a pillow fell on the floor, it came out from under the bed FULL of disgusting dust bunnies. The bathroom was fine I suppose. They had a scratchy welcome mat as a shower mat, which was strange. The towels were super thin and scratchy. We would never stay here again. It was an awful way to start our honeymoon.

My husband and I recently spent two nights at this bed and breakfast. We took the smaller of the three rooms -- which is, in fact, much smaller than the other two that get the most play on the website, but there are pictures of it if you look. Still, it was a very comfortable room, clean with lots of cupboard space, good bedside reading lights, and a very satisfactory bathroom (with one of those fancy rain showers). The room has an in-room air-conditioning unit that is a bit noisy, but worked very well and the first day we were there the weather was very very hot, so the unit was much appreciated. We also had a good breakfast -- a tasty omelette with toast. I don't know if there were others staying there when we were there because the house has excellent soundproofing. By the way, the interior has extraordinarily beautiful woodwork on the floors and trim which the owner did himself. The location was most convenient for us, with easy access to Kensington and the downtown. I'd definitely go back, and next time might spring for the larger unit.
