Though a licensed B&B we let as two rooms to give you exclusive use of the suite
About Richard Norton-Hall
We are Richard and Alison. We are pleased to be the hosts at Banff Bear Bed And Breakfast. We emigrated from Yorkshire in England in August 2006 and were proud to become Canadian citizens in 2015. We also own and operate the gift store / gallery About Canada, on Banff Avenue. This is a store that is popular with locals as a place to buy neat Canadian made products which are ideal as gifts or for the home. We originally had the house at Otter Street built in 2008, for us and our 3 children. The last of the children left home, for school, in 2015. We did not want to move from a house that we love. It is a great house in a perfect location, so we repurposed the ground floor of the house to be a two bedroom bed and breakfast suite. We now look forward to welcoming you to Banff.

Great place with great location in Banff. Richard and Allison were helpful and welcoming.
Wonderful, no negatives. Would recommend it to any of our friends.
Thank you for the review John. It was a pleasure to meet you all. We may well see you skiing at Sun Peaks some day!
Best VRBO I have ever stayed in
Property is immaculate and exactly as described. Great layout and everything you need for comfort. Easy walking into town so great location. Parking on property so we just left car and walked for dinners to avoid parking in town
Property owners were AMAZING. We took a tumble hiking in the mud and asked for a bucket to wash some things in the yard. They brought a bucket, laundry soap and a drying rack. So awesome. Would highly recommend to everyone
Thank you for your review Michelle. We were glad that you enjoyed your stay, it was a pleasure to meet you all, and would love to welcome you back, if you visit Banff in the future.
Richard and Alison provided a warm welcome and orientation. They had lots of great recommendations. They checked on us during the stay to see how things were going and if we needed anything. The place was perfect for 2 couples. Very nice and accommodating and a great location. We will definitely be back. Thank you Richard and Alison!
The booking process from start to finish was seamless. Richard and Allison were very understanding when we arrived much later than checkin time.
The B&B is perfect for two couples and the location just a short walk to Main Street.
Very clean and comfortable. The breakfast provisions were ample and thoughtful. Overall a great experience. Highly recommend this property.
Thank you Joanne for your kind review. We enjoyed meeting, and getting to know you. We hope that the rest of your travels went well. Richard and Alison
Beautiful Banff Bear
The Banff Bear was sparkling clean and totally lived up to its description. We were minutes (walking distance) from downtown Banff and all of the fun and food that it had to offer. Thanks for a wonderful 2 nights!
Thank you Marcia for your kind review. We enjoyed meeting, you. We hope that your foot is healing nicely and that it didn't stop you enjoying your visit. We look forward to accommodating you if you come back to do the hikes that you had planned!. Richard and Alison
Wonderful accommodations with personal service
The accommodations were most comfortable. The amenities were plentiful. The owner was nice enough to provide us with starters of food and beverage. The owner lives upstairs and was always eager to provide whatever we needed. I would highly recommend this place. Very centrally located. It would be helpful to have a TV station listing as the "guide" did not work. Otherwise, we were very happy with our stay.
Thank you Bob for your kind review. It was a pleasure to meet you all. I also appreciate your feedback on the tv listing guide. The cable company don't provide one, but I will make one and print it off. Thank you again. Richard and Alison
The Banff Bear B&B suite is the perfect getaway for two couples, friends, or family.
Located at the foot of Tunnel Mountain in Banff, 5 minutes walk from downtown, the Bow river and the Banff Centre. The Banff Bear B&B Suite is the ideal private retreat after a full day of sightseeing, hiking, or skiing, or it can be your quiet hideaway where you can relax, and have some down time.
Sit out on the private deck, like a local, and soak up the glorious surroundings with views of Mount Norquay and Cascade Mountain. On occasion watch the deer and elk that wander the town site and graze on the lawn.
The suite has it`s own private entrance so that you are provided with complete privacy. The suite is yours to use throughout the day.
