“Extremely Charming, Lovely Place”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

My wife and I just got back from a week's stay and loved it. The place is extremely charming. We stayed in a Victoria Suite which had a jacuzzi tub and a refrigerator. The bed was extremely comfortable. The 3rd floor location was very quiet, we never saw another guest on our floor. The hotel is located on a strip with several other hotels, restaurants, convenience stores, gas stations. Beautiful views of the mountains wherever you look. The town center is a ways a way - but you could walk it if you had the energy. Chances are you'll have a rental car, so no worries. There's a nice English pub style restaurant attached with seating outdoors. We loved the fish and chips and also had a great breakfast there. The staff was extremely pleasant and friendly. Would definitely do this again. Just keep in mind, it's an old hotel but very comfortable. So don't expect a brand new 'modern' property. It was exactly what we wanted for our getaway!

Room Tip: 303 was a good one.

This is the era of the George!

The Georgetown made our wedding dreams come true without much notice. We adjusted our wedding date to suit and we lucked out. From the moment my normally obsessive fiancé contacted Judy to long after we became man and wife our expectations were exceeded effortlessly. And we didn't even rehearse a thing.

If you are reading this and are still in planning mode you should seek out Nomi Whalen - living local legend and marriage commissioner extraordinaire.

The Georgetown staff was wonderful, the BBQ buffet incredible. Our Victorian rm had surprisingly good A/C and ventilation, had to be 30C on our day. The only disfunction was the toilet was a fair distance from any sink but the suite more than made up for this ageless quirk.

Considering the history of this Canmore landmark it is an incredible value (also check out their great stay&plays). No pool or outdoor spa's and you don't pay for them. No ballroom or DJ facilities but the dining room accommodates 30-35 ppl nicely and the pubs selections are deliciously affordable.

Simply Spectacular - We can't wait to celebrate many anniversaries with the new old George - Victorian style!

C&R

Room Tip: Our Victorian was amazing

After a wonderful outdoor ceremony in town, we and our 30 guests had an amazing evening meal and reception at the Georgetown Inn. The staff and management were extremely accommodating and helpful in all of our needs.
The Catering Manager Dorian, was particularly helpful in answering all of our questions, meeting all of our needs, and making sure that the whole evening was flawless.
Special mention also goes to Guylaine at the front desk, who was very accommodating and always had a smile.
We, and the majority of our guests, also stayed at the Inn for several nights. Without exception, everyone was very happy with their rooms. We (the bride and groom) were spoiled with the bridal suite on the 3rd floor… It was perfect… always clean, tidy and comfortable.
To put it simply, we were very satisfied with both the stay and reception, not to mention the delicious meals at the restaurant in the days surrounding the wedding. We would highly recommend the Georgetown Inn as a small wedding venue; for its quaint charm, its professional staff, its excellent food and comfortable accommodations.
Georgetown Inn, we cannot thank you enough for helping to make our wedding event special, successful and fun!

Room Tip: The jacuzzi rooms are wonderful for couples.

Thank you Georgetown Inn for providing us with the most amazing venue for the wedding. The intimate and quaint setting and venue was just what was required for a small wedding. The staff were extremely helpful and catered to all our needs and last minute changes. The ceremony was held out by the patio and the swing and tree lined walkway was perfect fort he ceremony and photos. The dinner was held inside and perfect for a small wedding of approx 40 people. My room was clean and the bed comfortable. I opted for the cheapest of the rooms and was pleasantly surprised by the decor. Quaint. If you want all modern and sleek, this is not the hotel for you. If you want cosy and intimate, then it's exactly the right place.

We found the Georgetown Inn in December and decided to contact them for an upcoming wedding. From the time we contacted them until the wedding they were amazing. When we arrived it was above what we could imagine. The staff was amazing and so accommodating. They took the time to ensure that we liked our rooms and helped us settle in. Each of the rooms had a unique, quaint and romantic flair.....a perfect place for a romantic getaway.....or a small and intimate wedding. As for the wedding...it was wonderful! We hosted the wedding on the patio with appetizers and drinks to follow....with dinner to follow in a vintage room. The food was delicious...we all put on a few pounds....I think my favourites were the stuff Yorkshire pudding and for breakfast the French toast. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is reasonably prices, quaint and has a wonderful staff. We are planning a trip this winter so we can enjoy the fireplace, and jacuzzi with a perfect view of the Canadian Rockies!

This passed weekend my brother got married at the George Town Inn..it was in one word, perfect!! The staff is so welcoming and the hotel is like stepping back in time. The gem of Canmore. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and sweet.
I think I gained a couple pounds from the amazing food at the little pub in the hotel. The French toast? Oh..my...gosh! Fantastic!
Once again I want to say how great the staff is! They were helpful and so accommodating. The dining room we held the reception in was perfect for a small intimate wedding.
Thank you so much Georgetown Inn for making my brother and sister in laws wedding so great and thank you for such a wonderful stay! We will be back, and most definitely will recommend you to all that we know!!!

You should stay here if you plan to be in Canmore. The building looks like an English inn and the decor inside matches - pub and all. Our room was very cute, quiet, and tea and cookies in the room along w/ a microwave and refrigerator. We ate outdoors at the pub - great fish and chips. The receptionist gave us great directions for an evening stroll along the river. I really, really liked this place!

Room Tip: The railroad goes through town but we didn't hear it.
