Every guesthouse in Field has the impressive view of mountains and squeaky noise of railway. But this GH is spotless clean and quite inviting, kind of like grandma's cozy cottage feeling. The kitchen is very well stocked. Nice matching plates (unlike other places - a bunch of radom stuff). It has tea, coffee and a small bottle of extra virgin olive oil too! The garden is lovely
And has BBQ facility. The old couple who look after the guesthouse are friendly kiwis but they only stay in Field for a couple of months.
A couple of things to keep in mind. A) Forget the Grandma's TV. Read books instead. B) There is a shower unit but no bath tub. C) They don't accept credit card but cash or traveller's check. There is no ATM in town. D) The checkout time is 10 am not 11 am. In addtion, If you want to do some cooking, have your grocery done in Banff. The only grocery store in town has canned food and 3~ kinds of veggies. Nevertheless, the only restaurant in town is excellent.
In short, we definitely recommend this GH to our friends and families.
