We stayed at the Poplar Inn for three nights in June to attend our son’s wedding, which took place at the Banff Springs Hotel. This was our first stay at a B&B. The Inn’s location is very central, just a short walk to everywhere we wanted to go. Even our most distant destination, the Banff Springs Hotel, was only a...

We stayed 4 nights in this well located B & B close to Downtown shops and restaurants. Susan was a perfect host providing super breakfasts and stimulating conversation from a fellow world traveller. Our room was very comfortable with a adjacent kitchen/ lounge area for guests with tea/ coffee making facilities. Susan was able to offer useful tips on where...

The Poplar Inn is a great choice for travelers to Banff who appreciate a convenient-to-downtown location that offers hardy breakfasts, beautiful rooms with very comfortable beds, and the enjoyable conversation of a world-traveler hostess like Susan.

We recently spent 5 nights with Susan at The Poplar Inn. We've never stayed at a B&B before and weren't sure what to expect. We loved it! Very charming home and hostess. Met a wonderful couple from Denmark whom we shared meals and hospitality with. Wonderful breakfast every morning, amenities for preparing your own lunch or dinner. Very close to...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights for our honeymoon, and it was one of the highlights of our trip! From the minute we arrived we were made to feel like we were in our own home. We had our own bedroom and ensuite, and enjoyed having our own seperate entry to the home so we did not...

Pleasant stay with Susan at her B&B. Easy walk to downtown to shops and restaurants. Good breakfasts. Great advice about attractions from our hostess who is a native to the area. Gateway to Banff National Park, Lake Louise and others points north.

We stayed with Susan while we sampled Banff's ski resorts. Susan is a charming hostess, very accommodating, and we had her all to ourselves. Nice room. The b&b is a short walk to restaurants and just across the street from the bus station for heading to the slopes. I would definitely stay with Susan again and would recommend her b&b...

We don't often stay at B&B's; we are a bit more accustomed to hotels, usually 5 star in fact. For a change we thought we'd stay at a B&B in Banff, and it was a great experience. We had a concert late that night, so the separate entrance was nice. The room and bathroom were very clean; always good to...
