Do not use this "Inn" if you expect hotel amenities. This bed and breakfast turned up early in a search for Calgary hotels and with quite a high rating. In the description it comes across as a boutique hotel with a limited number of interesting rooms. It is not a hotel and has none of the levels of service one expects with a four star hotel. We prepaid for three nights, left after one night and checked in to a similarly rated (and similarly priced) well known downtown hotel. We were offered a reduction on a future stay. This is an offer which we are unlikely to have the opportunity or the will to take up. I feel that part of the fault must lie with the search engine: as a B&B this "Inn" might rate its stars, it should not be rated or listed as a hotel. For this traveller an expensive mistake.

This was an unexpected, amazing experience. The floors and woodwork were beautiful and shone like glass. The place was spacious and clean. The home owners very accommodating, including cooking breakfast for us. I would recommend this place time and again.
