The Odenthals' B&B is chalet-like from the outside and has treasures like spinning wheels and an array of paintings in the interior. We had the room with two beds, which was immaculately clean, spacious, and comfortable. The beds were suitably firm and there were extra blankets and pillows. Unlike many places in Canada, this home has screens, so we were able to sleep with an open window. The shared bath (There are only two rooms rented at a time.) is also immaculately clean with white, fluffy towels, a good shower and two sinks. I liked the fact that there were drawers in the bathroom to put your toiletries in. The location is perfect: a little over two blocks from the town center on a quiet, well-lit street. Nearly everything is within walking distance. Breakfasts were outstanding and daily included just about anything one might want, for example,yogurt, fruit, eggs, breads, cereals, cheese, ham, juice, tarts, muffins or sweet breakfast breads, juice, tea, and coffee. All of these good qualities would in themselves deserve a five-star rating. However, the main attraction is Mrs Odenthal. Freda is a quiet, but sparkling woman who has developed the skill of walking that fine line between being warm, helpful,and friendly, but not intrusive. If we return to Banff, there is no doubt that we would stay with her again. We have already recommended Odenthals' to our family and friends. That the price is right just elevates the experience to a wonder!.
