When looking to make a reservation for the Jasper leg of our BC driving tour we turned toTripAdvisor (as usual) but found the reviews for hotels a bit mixed and nothing stood out. This prompted us to look at the B&B's which is something we have not done before. Here we found a different story with many of the properties receiving excellent reviews. We choose All Seasons Accommodations.
Fellow Brits should understand that a B&B in Canada is nothing like the stereotype B&B in the UK. The ones we experienced on this trip were of a very high quality and our understanding is that this is the norm. We learned that an 'accommodation' is actually a step down from a B&B in that it is a room/suite in a private house. This one did not serve breakfast.
On the basis of excellent TripAdvisor reviews we certainly didn't feel we were taking a risk in staying here but even so we were very pleasantly surprised by what we found. It was really very nice indeed and ideally situated in a residential street, one block from Jasper Main Street. Our room was the Maligne Suite which as other reviewers have said, had a private entrance, a comfortable queen bed and an ensuite WC/shower. There was also a microwave, fridge and tea coffee making facilities. Everything was spotlessly clean. We actually quite liked not having breakfast as it gave us added flexibility to follow the advice of other reviewers and use the Bears Paw bakery. Everything that has been said about it is true.
We are also very glad to endorse the glowing references others have given to the excellent hostess Gaetanne who told us everything we needed to know about Jasper and the surrounding area.
For dinner try Karuso's which is opposite the railway station - we did and we liked it.
We also very much liked Jasper - a smallish town with a really nice feel about it, and an excellent base for exploring the Jasper National Park. Watch out for the wildlife, you are very likely to see elk, deer, and a bear if you are lucky - we were.
To conclude, we have no hestiation in highly recommending All Seasons Accommodations.
