“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2011

We travelled as a group of three couples and stayed at Mountain View B&B for a week and it was perfect for us. While the rooms aren't very big, we had everything we needed and the price was very reasonable. The location is great, easy walk to the town centre and to walking trails like Tunnel Mountain. Edwina and Kevan are excellent hosts and were very helpful in providing ideas for sites to visit around Banff. We would love to come back again one day.

The Mountain View isn't a luxury B&B but is in a perfect location within 5 mins walk of Banff centre. The rooms are basic but have everything you need, two of them sharing a bathroom and the other with en-suite. We shared the bathroom and it was absolutely no problem and actually had a great shower (maximum 4 people sharing it so no queues!). And all the above comes at great value for Banff, it seemed like one of the best value places in town.

Also a quick thanks to Kevan who recommended an excellent restaurant (Earls) and also gave us loads of tips for our onward journey through the Rockies. The free internet and lounge area for guest use is also a great feature.

Clean, comfortable B&B within a few minutes walk of Banff town centre. Microwave, coffee machine, kettle, and fridge/freezer in a shared lounge/kitchen. Owner was very friendly and was happy to help out with questions. Room was small and was disappointed with the do-it-yourself breakfast (cereal, frozen bread, and a few sachets of butter/jam). Although the accomodation was fine, did not feel it was particularly good value for money and would look to stay elsewhere if we were to return.

This was a great location - it was only a short walk into the centre of Banff. The room was fine although not a lot of room once we opened the suitcases. Breakfast was a do-it-yourself arrangement wiith all the makings in the guest kitchen. This arrangement was great - it didn't matter what time you woke up. We had the use of the large fridge and a microwave. There was a a comfortable guest lounge with an internet connected computer. There were no 5 star frills like shampoos and handcreams etc but it was a very comfortable, very convenient place to stay.

Mountain View B&B is hosted by a very sweet family. They keep the accommodations extremely clean and the property's landscaping impeccable. We stayed there for a couple nights in the room with the ensuite bathroom and enjoyed it. The price was right, the location was excellent. We plan on returning on our future getaways to Banff.

The B&B is on the ground floor of this 3 story house. One room has an en-suite bathroom and the other 2 rooms share a bathroom. There is a communal living room which has a PC with internet access (there is also free wifi access) and a fantastic mountain view (hence the name I guess). The communal kitchen has a microwave, coffee machine, kettle and fridge/freezer. The kitchen is stocked with cereal, bread, jams, fresh fruit, milk and tea/coffee and you help yourself at breakfast time.

There is parking for at least 3 cars at the rear of the house and walking to downtown takes 5 mins and has loads of restaurants and shops to chose from. This is a good base if you want to visit the national parks in the south of the Rockies.

The owner of the B&B is really friendly (Australian lady) and came in every day to make up the rooms. The rooms and communal areas were always tidy and clean. This is a good place if you want to come and go at your own time without having to be restricted by breakfast times.

Friendly hosts sharing the back section of their house. Nice clean comfortable rooms and shared the kitchen facilities with the guests in the other room. Self serve breakfast provided. Only a short stroll to the town centre. Banff is a beautiful place.
