River Lee Executive Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed 19 May 2011

After a recommendation from a friend we decided to have our first B&B stay ever. It was lovely. The house itself is very clean and well decorated. Our rooms were cozy and the beds had fantastic linen. Bathrooms stocked with plenty of towels and your choice of luxury ammentites. Breakfast each day was amazing. This is not typical hotel breakfast fare. A modern eggs benny one day and veggie and brie omelettes the other. Fresh berry and stone fruit salad both days. Fresh muffins available all day. Huge DVD selection to watch a movie in your room. Free wifi. Laundry left to be done and returned that evening (at no charge!) The stay was a perfect combination of the comforts of home and staying with a beloved Aunt who wants to look after you. This is our new place to stay when in Calgary.

We stayed in the property next door, River Lee. We had very large suite, as the place is so popular, it was the last room! Large bed, large bathroom, plus a futon/settee, good large TV, desk!

Full of charm, decorations, trinkets, artwork it is really up market. Dianne cooked muffins, omelletes, there fruit, coffee. The service was so friendly, we could have borrowed bikes, a raft for the river, and the advice for local stuff to do was great. Highly recommended.

Lovely grounds, pond/waterfall, benches to sit in, flowers etc. Best part of Calgary, in my opinion, and a walk over the pedestrian bridge to the main downtown area.

We stayed in the River Lee Summer suite, which is at the top of that house, with its own bathroom. Self checkin was a good idea, but wasn't necessary for us as we arrived mid-afternoon and Diana was about the house getting things ready. She was friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and cooked a good breakfast. De's suggestions for walks and activities in the area were a terrific idea and ended up forming the basis for a great 3-day stopover in Calgary. We didn't have a car, but that was no problem as the location was superb.
The Summer suite was carefully stocked with all the things we'd be likely to need, and as an occasional solo business traveller I could see it would be a much more comfortable option than a chain hotel, and was well equipped for business as well as leisure. Having the sofa bed out, which was our choice, did make the suite pretty full, and as the weather was hot we appreciated the fan that was provided. The rest of the house is beautifully decorated, and the garden was a highlight - lovingly tended and well-landscaped, it was great to have breakfast out there or just chill with a book. I understand some of the other reviewers' reservations, as the house is cosy and some rooms share bathrooms, but I think the positives outweigh those quibbles.

We had a wonderful stay at the sister property River Lee Bed & Breakfast. Both heritage homes are beautifully restored. The owners have a real sense for creating a very warm atmoshere without the stuffy frills of some B&Bs. The location (within walking distance to Kensington) must be easily one of the best in Calgary . Kensington Village is a bustling artsy part of town with lots of great shops and restaurants and a funky cinema. The B&Bs are on a very quiet tree-lined side street with beautiful historic homes. Diana and Deanne are very warm and helpful hosts and service is great (anything from great breakfasts to laundry service, complimentary gym pass, crayons and colouring book for our daughter, bycicle use and yoga mat). Two hidden gems! Our favorite in Calgary!
