I have stayed in a number of hotels in the Bow Valley over the years and this was my favorite hotel by far. I used to live in Banff and was not familiar with this property before staying at but my wife said it looked good so off we went.
First I love the location. Many of Banff affordable hotels are right down on Banff Avenue which can be very busy and loud day and night. I go to Banff for piece and quite not to listen to tour buses all day and drunk kids all night. The guest house is just across the Bow River in a quite residential area. It is close enough to walk to the town centre but far enough you cant hear any of it. It is placed at the foot of one of the mountains which means wildlife often come right down to your window.
We also like the friendly like family treatment we received from all the staff. There is a large open dinning area that has huge windows. This room is great for either talking to fellow travelers or just staring up at the peaks of the Rockies.
Just keep in mind this is a guest house and not a typical hotel. It looks to be a converted home so sometimes your bathroom might be just down the hall rather then in your room. Also it is an older building with creaky floors and a bit thin walls. You likely will hear your neighbours time to time.
