“Santa stayed here!”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

We are a company that has a business doing Santa photos in shopping centres for 6 weeks each Christmas. This year, our Santa came down from Edmonton and we needed a place for him to stay close to Southcentre Mall. I found Shangarry on the internet and booked Santa in for a 39 night stay. I could not believe what a wonderful welcome Josephine and her husband gave him and how they looked after him for his stay. His hours were long in the chair and he so appreciated being able to walk back to the Shangarry and relax before doing it all again the next day. Josephine made sure he had a great, healthy breakfast so that he would be ready to visit with hundreds of children that day. This was a rare find and when I arrived today to drop off the cheque, I was treated to a lovely cup of tea, almond cake and a visit with Josephine and her grandchildren.

We spent 2 nights recently at Shangarry and found it perfect. Both Josephine and her husband were most welcoming and helpful from our delicious greeting to last goodbye. Breakfast was a gourmet delight with a most beautiful different setting each day. Not one comfort or convenience was overlooked and Josephine is a great travel adviser for the area. We also enjoyed getting aquainted with the other guest and sharing a glass of wine with them to celebrate their arrival from England. Another plus was it location close to the Calgary light rail train which meant no searching for parking downtown.Our next trip to Calgary we will be returning to Shangarry B&B.

Having stayed in many Bed and Breakfast establishments over the years, I can say with confidence that The Shangarry is absolutely the best. The secret to its success is Josephine's charm and total commitment to making her guests comfortable and happy. Not only did she provide spectacular breakfasts in a beautiful setting, but also responded to my every need, even including driving me to various appointments. I could hardly believe it. Her husband went to the trouble of carefully wrapping a gift I would otherwise have had difficulty packing safely. Their many efforts were completely natural, as though we had been friends for years. It was a unique and unforgettable experience for me. I look forward to my next stay there!

Room Tip: I didn't see them all, but I'm sure that I would be happy with any of them.

Brilliant. Welcomed with tea/coffee and home made cake. Lovely home - exactly as described in the website. Tastefully decorated and clean & tidy throughout. We were made to feel like friends rather than paying guests. Well cooked, filling breakfasts were a treat to look forward to.
Good location: Walking distance to local shopping. Views over golf course from the living room.
Josephine and Ragu had first class, helpful knowledge of places to visit in the area.
Anyone thinking of setting up a B&B should stay at Shangarry first. They would then understand how to do it properly.

The most welcoming Josephine and her husband fully deserve all of the praise from the reviews on Trip-advisor. We were greeted with her delicious banana loaf and tea so we knew we were going to have a fabulous stay and from our arrival to departure we were made to feel as if we were part of her family and not just guests. Great food, nothing too much bother, beautiful home with hosts who made you feel that they liked having you with them. Delicious breakfasts set you up for the day and as previous reviewers have said all served on beautiful china and crystal. Can't recommend it highly enough and if you are lucky enough to go to Calgary you should try to stay here. It is only a 5 min walk to a large mall with great shopping and another 10 mins takes you to a quick C Line train into the centre of Calgary, much cheaper than parking in the City

Josephine Sital, owner and hostess of Shangarry B&B, is the special ingredient here. From the welcoming evening beer to the last evening port with mixed nuts and chocolates, she makes your visit special. Additionally her breakfasts are incredible and she is knowledgeable about everything in the area.
The accommodations are comfortable, but not sound proof. We met several interesting guests (part of the fun of a B&B) which was also artfully facilitated by Jo. We shared emails and hopefully will be able to visit each other again!
Dr. Sital's gardens are beautiful. The art on the walls is diverse and reminiscent of an art gallery.
It is no wonder there are many return guests.

Room Tip: We traveled with 4 people and shared a bathroom with 2 bedrooms in a secluded area. There are also...

W stayed at Shangarry from 8/22-8/24 and in that short time became friends with the amazing Josephine! Her home is beautiful and she opens up her home and heart to all that stay with her. She simply cannot do enough to make you feel comfortable! She serves breakfast on the most beautiful China and the food and ambiance is wonderful. We stayed at several B&B's as we travelled the Canadian Rockies (all top rated by Trip Advisor), but none could compare to the experience we had at Shangarry. Lanie C.

Room Tip: The downstairs ensuite room is best if you can negotiate the stairs.
