Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We found the suite surprisingly spacious, twice the size of many hotel suites we have stayed in. The gas "wood" fire in the living area was not only kept us nice and warm but was also quite romantic. The beds were some of the most comfortable we have experienced in our travels and the bathroom facilities were clean with plenty of hot water. The separate storage room was a treat as our luggage usually clatters up our bedrooms.
Downtown Calgary was easily accessible by several nearby bus stops and the magnificent Rocky Mountains just an hour and a half drive. Our hosts met us on arrival and even drove us to the airport at the end of our stay. Perhaps the highlight of the stay was when our host drove us up to the Rockies and we were able to, not only enjoy the amazing scenery, but spend time chatting. The hosts provided valuable local advice on how to best enjoy our stay in Calgary.

Management response:

Thank you, Robyn and Bruce, for staying at Your Beautiful Gateway to the Canadian Rockies. Thank you for your good cheer, the dynamic discussions and for sharing your travelling adventure with us. See you again!

About the neighbourhood
Ideal location in the heart of Calgary. Parkdale/West Hillhurst is one of Calgary's most desirable areas. An older area, it is rapidly rebuilding with million dollar inner city beautiful homes. Our home is directly on North America's longest walking/bike path and a ten minute walk from the beautiful Bow River.

The Kensington district with small shops, wine stores and restaurants is a five minute drive or easy twenty minute walk. Downtown is a five minute drive.

Five minute drive to Highway One and you are on your way to the Rockies. Or head east an hour and a half to the great Alberta badlands.
