“Never Mind Home Away From Home - I want this to be my HOME”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

"Ruff, grrrreat, ruuuffff, brarkk, Miikka and Be-Be are gr8t! Nice trees, river and parks," churped Louis the Poodle about his multiple stays at Westways.
Dogs = YES. Let Jonathan know in advance.
Host = Jonathan. He has seen everything in the BnB industry. A host of phenomenal grace and character.
BEDS = best beds in the West. You will have the sleep of angels or CEO's. Whatever your pleasure.
BREAKFASTS = unbelievable. Many a weary traveler from afar has been sent on their way fortified with a hearty breakfast perfectly cooked from Jonathan's kitchen and served hot. Don't be frightened by the volume of goodness and the options for your breakfast. It is called a Bed and BREAKFAST! A set rotation in place. Try to wake up Sunday morning for EGGS BENNIE!
LOCATION = cannot get any better. You are in the downtown southwest core, close to Safeway, Shoppers Drug Mart and Paragon Drugs. Fourth Street restaurants, bars, pubs and little shops are three blocks away. Five blocks from The Stampede / Saddledom. On the bus and LRT routes.
HERITAGE / HISTORY / WI-FI / FLAT TV / BLUE RAY = in every room.
PARKING = 5 in the back unlimited in the front. The opposite of a mullett.
BATHROOMS = no sharing. each of the 6 rooms has their own toilet, sink, shower and / or bathtub

Room Tip: Top Floor Rooms: Scollen Room = hot tub, full deck, faces the busier street. Mission Room = nice s...

Hosts very friendly. Breakfast excellent. Nice atmosphere and rooms clean. The B & B is one of the few remaining older homes (with character) on a street which has been taken over by multi-story condos/apartments. Our room was tiny but comfortable. The location was perfect for the Stampede because of its easy walking distance to the grounds. If your willing to exercise you can even walk to downtown (a little over a mile away??) Note: There is a charge (because of credit charges to the owner) for canceling the reservation during the stampede which impacted friends who needed to cancel for medical reasons.

Thank you for taking the time and effort in writing this review. Regarding cancellation fees for bookings during Calgary's biggest festival, unlike other festival destinations where they have a policy of no refunds at all. We, on the other hand, will try to resell the room and if successful, refund the prepayment except for $150.00 charge. This charge covers our expenses, time and commissions paid to online travel agencies in reselling the room in a short period of time.

We would encourage guests when they in advance, plan and prepaid a trip, take out travel insurance to cover any expenses incurred through cancelling the trip.

I enjoyed a delightful three night stay at the Westways B&B during the Calgary Stampede. In the lovingly decorated house, keeping its 1900s character, my room had everything I'd have possibly needed and more. Breakfast at the beautifully appointed dining table felt like Sunday dinner at Grandma's with all the best old china out to make it a special occasion. The breakfast was to die for! A colourful fruit plate and a creative, hearty main plate. The communal dining table made me feel I was sharing a special meal (which I was) with interesting new friends. Perfect a solo traveler.

Jonathan and Graham were friendly, helpful, gracious hosts.

A bonus: it's about a five minute walk to the Stampede grounds.

Next time I go to Calgary, I know where I'll stay...at the outstanding Westways B&B.

Its certainly the first time I have had a (great!) cooked breakfast served on china with orange juice in a crystal decanter, surrounded by black and white photos of family members and old Hollywood stars! The Westways is certainly eclectic, and we enjoyed our stay (albeit one night only). Jonathon is a great host, striking the balance between engaging with guests when help is needed, and giving you your privacy, and its a good location for centre of town and the Stampede.

We love this place! The breakfast is to die for and the hosts are incredibly hospitable. Not to mention the adorable greeter dogs, Mika and Bebe. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable and each room has its own private bathroom. You always meet interesting people over breakfast and make new friends from all over the world! It is also very well situated in Calgary with many of Calgary's finest restaurants within walking distance. There is also a C-Train station within a 15 minute walk to take you wherever you want to go!

Very late review Jonathan, sorry! This is a great little place to stay. Jonathan was nice to talk to and even spent some time telling me about the old black and white photos in the dinning room, because I thought they were so interesting to look at. The breakfast was very, very good. The two little dogs very cute. I enjoyed Calgary and this was a nice location very close to shops and good places to eat you can walk to.

Undoubtedly great location for access to the Saddledome, as well as 4th Street for some bars and restaurants. Our room was very small, and there was something about the place that just made me feel very awkward, definitely could not relax there. I prefer the anonymity of a hotel.
