My daughter and I were travelling to Lethbridge for her dance festival and we needed somewhere to stay for four nights. Everyone else was staying at hotels but we wanted the ability to go somewhere quiet at the end of the day and we always love a good B&B! The Norland did not disappoint and my only wish is that we were there in the summer to truly enjoy the beautiful grounds of the property. We stayed in the Queen room and it was clean and nicely decorated. We appreciated the owners keeping the character of this beautiful old house when they were renovating the upper floors. The beds were comfortable and it was a very quiet and peaceful setting.
The owners are lovely and interesting people and it was a pleasure to chat with them over breakfast. They made us feel welcome and were happy to provide information about the property and the town. The breakfast was hearty and plentiful and it was nice to enjoy it in the dining room overlooking the pool.
I would definitely stay here if ever we needed to travel to Lethbridge again and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place for people wanting some tranquility. I was able to see the other suites and the new apartment style rooms on the top floor are great and the other large bedroom on the second level was also really nice. Quick into the city but far enough to get away! Thank you Al and Karen, it was a wonderful experience!
