We stayed just the 1 night in mid September enroute from Jasper on the way to Vancouver.The location is on the fringe of town in an estate high up on the slopes. It is covenient to the highway if you are just passing through but a distance from downtown. The home is impressive from the outside being in a quiet street. We were met with a warm and friendly welcome. We had the Rose room on the upstairs level. There is plenty of space with a king bed, good storage areas and an ensuite with excellent lighting and shower. There is also an array of special extras such as sherry, chocolates, fruit and the like. The furnishings and fittings are high quality however the decor is overpowering. There is an upstairs sitting room again nice but not our style surrounded with dolls. The outside patio is inviting and pleasant however the view is best from homes on the other side of the road.
Pat and Sam are pleasant, social and conversation is easy.
Breakfast was non negotiable at a late 8.30am to suit the hosts rather than the guests. Breakfast was very good with fruit served in a parfait style glass, coffee/tea is made to suit, eggs souffle in a round dish, however we found the setting of candles, background music, doiles on place mats and the feeling to be careful not to touch anything, more suitable for dinner rather than breakfast. They did accommodate my wife's special diet very well.
There are some eating places just a short drive down the hill but the prices are on the high side compared with the club hotel.
Yes this place is high quality and excellent value for money but it's more a magazine showpiece than a smart B&B. It was good for our purpose but we found it too pretentious for a longer stay.
