“A Great B&B-Faultless In Every Way”
Reviewed 28 September 2011

A great B&B-faultless in every way. Connie and Jamie are excellent hosts who go the extra mile to improve their guests holiday. For example, Jamie spent time with us on our first day pointing out the best sights and hikes. He even lent me bear spray! Connie's breakfasts are superb and saw us through a days hiking before we felt hungry. When we returned there was always some home-baking and coffee in the kitchen. The location is ideal- about 500km from the centre of Banff- quiet yet convenient. It was our first B&B stay on our first visit to Canada and set the scene for our holiday. Connie and Jamie are excellent ambassadors for their country not just their B&B.

I stayed for 3 nights at Banff Avenue B & B on my recent trip to the States and Canada. Firstly, the location is perfect - being on the main road in Banff town, it is only a few minutes walk to the centre of town. The full breakfast each day is amazing and exactly what you need for a full day of hiking and sightseeing! Connie and Jamie are just lovely - they helped me work out what I wanted to see in and around Banff and made some great suggestions. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and if I ever go back to Banff, I would definitely stay at Banff Avenue again. Thanks Connie and Jamie - you helped to make my time in Banff very special.

Connie and Jamie welcomed us into their house and helped us to fully enjoy Banff and surrounds. This B&B is very clean and comfortable and Connie even provides home-made cake for when you return from a tiring day of sight-seeing. The breakfast is very expansive and there is ample time to share stories with the hosts and other travellers (three guest rooms with private bathroom in total). A must-stay if you are travelling to Banff. Make sure you ask about the very interesting story regarding the stone fireplace.

My wife and I just got back from vacation and a real highlight was our time in Banff. Beautiful area and the weather was especially nice. Connie, at the Banff Avenue B&B made the trip even better. Very nice accomodations, great breakfast every day, and helpful tips for sightseeing in the area. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: The downstairs room has a sitting room with TV that we used-like our own living room

Great location (short walk to Banff resaurants, gracious hosts, comfortable room and bathroom, interesting fellow guests from all over, hiking/sightseeing help, and even free loan of bear spray. We noted the good reviews of Connie's great spot on trip advisor before we went on our trip and we can only add kudos to what was said. The breakfasts were so filling and delicious that we usually skipped lunch. To top it off, the B&B has a great history (but you will have to stay there to find out about that.) Connie (and cohost Jamie) have many talents and hosting a B&B in the nicest of ways appears to be at the top of the list. Thank you,Connie and Jamie. for our loverly visit and hope you will call us when you come to Arlington VA.

Room Tip: The lower level room is the roomiest room.
