Thank you so much for having us to your quaint B+B! We had a lovely visit here. It was so wonderful to go for a walk downtown and do a bit of shopping and eating (Market and Brava Bistro). Most of all we enjoyed sitting on your beautiful patio enjoying wine. Reminiscing of the past, present and future, and giggling like little girls again from summer camp where we met 38 years ago!!

We enjoyed the river walk and loved the gardens at the library. We even caught a glimpse of Princess Kate (Middleton). Your breakfast certainly trumps instant oatmeal! Love sitting on the deck.

August 25-27, 2010
Thank you very much for this pleasant stay in your cozy Victorian museum with so many details of antiquity to discover in every step. We will have to come back to find out the rest, and maybe one or the other tale about them. I am sure there is a story for every china piece and picture or spoon. (Needless to say that the breakfast was marvellous, well suiting the surrounding). Best wishes for you.
Helga and Rupert (Viernheim, Germany )

June 22-26, 2010
Thank you for your warm and gracious hospitality. You are very kind and conscientious. I loved how quiet it was, and the bed was very comfortable, especially with that beautiful, fluffy comforter. Loved the soaker tub and bathroom décor. What an amazing ceiling light fixture! And by the way, I think your apron should say “Danger! You won’t want to go home and eat your regular, breakfast after eating mine!” And loved that amazing yoghurt topping on the fruit cup as well as the music! Thanks for such a comfortable stay and refuge to come home to after my long days at the facial massage workshop.
Rose ( N Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada )

Jacquie ( Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada )
August 11-12, 2009
Having had to wait so long for us to arrive, you still managed to make us feel so very welcome; even providing us with all we needed. Whatever must we have looked like having spent 10 nights camping in a tepee prior to our visit! Your attention to detail to ensure that all our needs were met has been incredible. We agree wholeheartedly with all previous comments regarding the breakfasts. The room arrangement suited our needs perfectly and I am glad we were able to enjoy a little time in the oasis at the back. Your eating and activity recommendations were perfect. Thank you. If we ever return to Calgary or know of someone who is visiting, we will certainly recommend that they stay at Mount Royal B&B Thank you.

After cancelling our visit to you in 2008 due to a ruptured gastroeremus muscle (12 week on crutches) we were delighted to arrive in 2009 and share you exquisite home. We loved the Garden Side Room and patio so comfortable- just like home. Your breakfasts were just fantastic which matched the general ambiance of your home. Your help and advice regarding places of interest and eating out were most helpful. We very much look forward to see you again in the not too distant future. Kind Regards and Many Thanks,
Peter and Marilyn ( Worcester, Hartlebury, England )
June 25-27, 2009
Thank you for having us to stay in your lovely home. Having read through previous comments I can only repeat what others have said- comfortable bed, wonderful breakfasts, and excellent host. You made us feel welcome and we loved the peace and quiet after the bustle of crowded city streets. Every Band B we stay in is different, making them far more interesting than boring old hotels! Long may you continue in your endeavours, we wish you every success for the future. Kind regards and many thanks.
Bill and Keitha (Wanganui, New Zealand )
June 19-21, 2009
What a terrific job you do! A house is just a house, but you make your's a true home. All the extra little touches are very special. The food was delectable and Marcus thought the cradle full of stuffies was really interesting. Of course the armadillo was a big hit.
Rita (Victoria, British Columbia, Canada )
May 19-20, 2009
Charming house. Splendid food. Comfy bed. What more could I want? For my wife to stay here with me next time! Sincerely,
Doug (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada )
May 11-13, 2009
Many thanks for your kindness and hospitality during our short stay in your home. We have never experienced such a B&B before- truly unique. The breakfast experience was something else- Margaret especially enjoyed the special tea.
The room was very quiet and the bed very comfortable.
Special thanks for letting us drop off our luggage earlier then booking-in time and for keeping it until our evening flight. All the nice little touches were appreciated and the map you provided was most helpful.
Neil and Margaret (Glasgow, Scotland )
April 1, 2009
Your house is very unique with things like the wood bird cage and the portraits on the walls. Truly original pieces... For me this week has been quite stressful because I am in the process of moving which is never very fun but being here made it somewhat easier! Thank you.
Kathleen ( Calgary, Alberta, Canada )
March 4, 2009
As I write this with your flower bedside pen, it seems to say it all! You have a beautiful, interest filled home with so much attention to fine details. We are grateful that you enjoy cooking, as you must to produce such inticing and original breakfasts. "Explosion" I mean! Thank you for sharing what you have created with us. An amazing "interval" as we have left our daughter and family in Summerland BC and now head off for the biggest leg of our journey, home to the U.K. Our best wishes to you.
Robin and Sheila ( Radlett, Hertsford, England )
February 28- March 1, 2009
We have thought about many things while staying here at Mt. Royal B&B: how interesting it is to be in a space created in a different era.; the way in which objects speak to one another and "about things"; how much fun it is to talk about food and eat it? And share recipes and tips ("fat is good and tasty"); the excitement in discussing common interests gained through travel and observation of treasured local things. Thank you.
Janice and Jack ( Camrose, Alberta, Canada )
December 14, 2008
My stay at your lovely B&B was warm and welcoming. I love all the wonderful attention to detail, the stuffed animals, the origami swans. Thank you for thinking about my welfare. Merry Christmas to you.
Judy ( Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada )
September 12-13, 2008

Andrea and Chris ( Dewsbury, England )
September 9-11, 2008
We have so enjoyed our stay in your lovely B&B. Your location is so quiet and perfect for exploring Calgary on foot- we walked for hours. It’s hard to believe one is so close to the city in this quiet oasis. Your breakfasts are simply fabulous, as were your suggestions for both dinners. We especially appreciated your kind offer to let our UK cousin Jill prepare for her return flight yesterday afternoon, well after your check-out time. Many thanks for making our visit to Calgary all it has been.
Jane and Bob ( Grand Forks, Canada )

Jill ( Guildford, Surrey, England )
August 24, 2008
Without any doubt this is the Rolls Royce of B&B accommodations! An exceptionally well-appointed and comfortable establishment. We particularly enjoyed the patio area off the Gardenside Room- most attractive- oh, and hot chocolate- what a treat!! To omit the breakfast would be a catastrophe- What a quiche- and homemade! Thank you. We’re well set up for our flight to Toronto.
Natalie and Garry ( Perth, Australia )
August 19-20, 2008
You provided us with a most welcome oasis of tranquillity in the midst of our road based journey of discovery. We were able to relax and enjoy this wonderful, period home so close to the busy city centre where every detail is beautifully, lovingly, planned and presented. Thanks for everything.
Dorothy and Rod ( Eccleshall, England )
August 11-12, 2008
We were totally mesmerized and excited to be in such a lovely place. You’re attention to detail in providing such a quiet, cozy accommodations was exactly what we needed.

Many praises to you.
Angela and Toby ( Winnipeg, Canada )
August 10, 2008
What a wonderful experience! Your place is amazing; loved every little detail; you did a remarkable job decorating. I totally appreciated how spotless your place is. The breakfast experience with the soft music in the background totally added to my digestion of the delicious food. Thanks.
Lois ( Vancouver, Canada )
July 9-11, 2008
Thanks so much for sharing your delightful home with us! We especially enjoyed relaxing on the garden deck after a LONG journey, and the welcoming, cosy atmosphere, sherry on the night of the thunderstorm when we arrived "home" cold and tired from a day out. Hope you find time to relax after Stampede Week is over- pretty noisy and busy place after Victoria! Your home was a quiet retreat!

I enjoyed my stay at Mount Royal B&B. I especially appreciated the location, the attention to detail; the Fireside room is lovely and the bed luxurious- and the quiet at night. I’ll definitely recommend you to my friends who pass through Calgary.
Pauline ( Montreal, Canada )
June 19, 2008
Thank you so much for your hospitality. Just what we needed after a long flight from the UK. The breakfast surprise was delicious! Attention to detail is second to none. The bed was so comfy (a home from home) and your gardens are a beautiful retreat. Thanks again.
Rebecca and Patrick ( Swindon, England )
June 5-9, 2008
Thank you seems like an inadequate way to express my gratitude and appreciation for a most wonderful stay in your lovely home! Everything was superb- the room, the breakfasts (they were amazing), the hospitality, the extra care and attention. I will highly recommend this place to all I know. And thank you for your kind words and encouragement. You are very special and very caring. Each guest is privileged to have spent time in your home! May 2008 be a great year and may you continue to be blessed with your health and much happiness! You deserve nothing less. Blessings always. Warm regards.

Your bed and breakfast was absolutely delightful! Every detail was taken care of, from the chocolate mint on the pillow to the bathrobes and slippers. Your service and attention to detail was professional and wonderful. I felt like a pampered Queen here. The back deck is amazing, off the Gardenside Room, and breakfast was the best I have ever had. Your receive 5 stars out of 5 in my books and when I return to Calgary in the future, I will absolutely stay here again. Sincerely,
Julie ( Richards Landing, Canada )

What a quaint and exquisite B&B we have found in the busy Calgary center. Superb breakfast and elegance is what we experienced. Thank you for all this treasure that we take with us.

What a delight! I did not expect to be pampered…. But I was! The breakfasts were culinary artistry. Certainly, I will tell all of my friends about Mount Royal B&B! Thank you for a fabulous experience.
Kelley ( Edmonton, Canada )
April 17, 2008
This was a great experience! Your B&B is a hidden gem. We loved the selection of music coupled with the beautiful surroundings. This was a welcome change from staying in hotels. We will be back!
Rick and Wendy ( Cochiw, Canada )
April 12, 2008
Your quaint bed and breakfast was the most perfect retreat for Fred and me. The ambiance, the service, the beautiful bath were far more than we expected. The highlight of our trip was to be the formal gala we attended, however your elegant home far surpassed the event. Thank you for so graciously opening your home to us.
Cheryl-Ann and Fred ( Sherwood Park, Canada )

Thanks for all the hospitality. You are great in helping people in need. I sure will stay here with you when my missus arrives. Thank you for all.

Thank you. I very much enjoyed my stay here. All was so quiet and peaceful. I loved the touches of Victorian décor in the home. I hope to come again.
Patricia ( Saskatoon, Canada )
December 4-7, 2007
I loved staying in the Fireside Room. It was comfortable and quiet and a little oasis to return to each evening after my workshop. I felt like I was staying in the home of a good friend whose house keys I had while she was away.
Thank you, thank you! The stay has made me feel replenished!
Joscelyn ( Edmonton , Alberta , Canada )
September 11-13, 2007
Thank you for providing such clean, comfortable, beautifully furnished accommodation for our first two nights in Canada . The breakfasts were attractively presented, full or interest and very tasteful. The little brown puppy dog, which was on our bed from the start, was an especial favourite! Best wishes.
Anne and Dick ( Hampshire , England )
August 21, 2007
I notice when I enter the room that there is a chocolate on my pillow. I pop it in my purse for "later". I flip through the guest book. People have been very pleased with their stays. They repeatedly mention the breakfast. Something to look forward to. There is music playing when I arise, soft and harmonious. Fresh, I find out later, orange juice in a crystal goblet awaits me. After the bath I arrive from breakfast at the appointed time. What is that hint of spice in the strong black coffee?
Pansies are edible, aren't they Or is it a violet? Is there anything else I need? Phone √ . Hairdryer √ . Everything is orderly. I like the collection of antique spice tins… and the Buddha, the bird cage, the little table with the leaf arrangement.
I call my friend, but she hasn't had her coffee yet. So I have time to write this… It's a sunny, windy day in late summer. I'm so glad I found this place to stay… and on such sort notice too. Thank you for your hospitality.
Diane ( Salmon Arm , British Columbia , Canada )

It was like coming home. Thank you for such a warm welcome! I wished I could stay here longer. Such a lovely home, so beautifully decorated, so many wonderful details. I love it.

Thank you so much for the beautiful room. We came straight from the airport after a 9 hour flight, and your lovely home and welcoming hospitality made us instantly relax- what a great way to start a holiday.

Peter and Juliet ( Wellingborough , England )
July 19, 2007
Thank you for a quiet and elegant home, just off the bustle of 17th Avenue . It was easy to reach all the Calgary attractions- the Stampede, Heritage Park and the Olympic area. You will definitely not need to eat lunch after eating the breakfast. We would recommend this B&B to anyone we know.
Peter and Juliet ( Worcestershire , England )
July 14, 2007
Thank you for your kind hospitality, helpfulness and friendliness. We have enjoyed our stay tremendously and appreciate you going out of your way to help where ever you could. A lovely breakfast and peaceful house that we found so relaxing. A wonderful place for our last place to stay in Canada .

A perfect start to our special holiday in Canada . After travelling 20 hours the elegance and comfort was much appreciated. This morning we have time to relax and enjoy our surroundings. Your welcome together with everyone we have met since arriving last night has been heart warming. Looking forward to our month's adventure in Alberta and B.C. Hope all goes well during the Stampede. Will be back and would happily recommend this oasis of peace and calm. The breakfast was gourmet. Thanks.
Pearl and Frank ( Tipperary , Ireland )

Thanks for being a part of our Calgary visit for our very special celebration- my granddaughter's graduation from medical school. We found the location was close to all the activities… a big help!

Great work! We really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of your B&B, both comfortable and quiet. You have a nice personality for this business- you really made us feel at home. Of course the breakfast was fabulous! I loved the presentation and the fine china, silverware, etc. Take care.
Ed and Deb ( Edmonton, Alberta, Canada )
October 14-15, 2006
Your lovely and inviting website led us to your superb B&B. We appreciated the perfect location so close to trendy 17 Avenue- Uptown Calgary- just a short walk to Fire Escape ceramic studio, where we spent the afternoon being creative. What a wonderful accomodation in your heritage home with tasteful furnishings, a luxurious suite with relaxing atmoshere. We’ll try to copy your delicious breakfast wonders at home. Thanks for making us feel so safe and at home in this vibrant and exciting city.

What a thrill and a delight for Rob and I to spend our 15th Wedding anniversary here with you. This house has always felt so warm and inviting and is a treat to see the B&B the first time. When we moved in here as downstairs tenants in 1991 it felt like a vacation, with the immaculate garden in the front and the “secret” back yard deck. We thoroughly enjoyed living here for 4 years until we purchased our own home in MountView, Calgary. We married on August 4, 1991 and began our 15 years journey (so far) of wedded bliss. When I discovered that you had converted “our suite” to a B&B I booked us in to surprise Rob as an anniversary gift, and boy was he surprised! It is such a treat to re-visit here and experience the same feeling as when we first saw our suite. The décor and furnishings are tasteful and detailed, we had a very enjoyable time. Our dear friends completed the surprise by joining us for dinner at Brava Bistro. What a wonderful experience for us all. Thank-you from the both us for a fantastic rememberance.
Rob and Shelley ( Calgary, Alberta, Canada )
July 22-24, 2006
What a delightful B and B! We arrived in Calgary after our marathon trip (Alaska Cruise and touring BC and Alberta) and could not have found anywhere more perfect for the last two days of our holiday. Your attention to detail and the special little touches make for a truly memorable experience. We loved the wonderful suite in which to relax and the gourmet breakfasts. Many congratulations to you. All the best.

July 8-10, 2006
What a serene setting! You certainly made me feel comfortable and “at home” during my business trip! Breakfasts were delicious and the fresh flowers thoughtful. I love the garden area and would consider returning in a few weeks just to see everything in full bloom! Thank you for providing a home away from home. Good luck!
Michelle ( Edmonton , Alberta , Canada )
June 26, 2006
This was such a great way to end my Alberta adventure in Lake Louise and Yoho. After 3 full days of biking and hostels this was the perfect way to wind down and relax. All of the beautiful pieces of art, furniture and collectibles create an environment that made me feel welcome and comfortable… and the yard is done amazingly also. My glass of sherry before dozing off was also much appreciated! Thank- you for the hospitality.
Louise ( Toronto, Ontario, Canada )

April 09, 2006
Thank you for a relaxing time. The breakfasts were wonderful. I looked forward to them every morning. We also ate at some great nearby restaurants at your suggestion. This location was great.

This is our second time staying at your beautiful B and B. We fell very much at home and will certainly return again. Thanks for the superb breakfast. Your standards are excellent! And I am going to try your new fruit recipe. Thanks again and we will tell our friends about your beautiful B and B.
Reid and Grace ( St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada )
March 27, 2006
Staying with you has been like having our own private pied-a-terre in Calgary. It was wonderful having someone else make breakfast for a change, and to be the guest rather than the host. We appreciate the extra touches too. Your location was great as well, and we’ve enjoyed our daily walks to the Saddledome as well as to downtown and Kensington. When you’re next in Ottawa, we would be delighted to see you at Shirley Samantha’s B and B.
Cynthia and Paul ( Ottawa, Ontario, Canada )

“A thing of beauty is a joy forever”- thank you for creating and sharing such a beautiful space with myself, and other travellers far from home. But most importantly, thank you for your kindness, warmth and generosity of spirit- all things that shall be returned to you tenfold!!! You've turned a hectic business trip, (with a conference that started far too early in the morning- thank you so much for accomodating me), into a lesson on the art of living- beautiful breakfasts set to music, the cholocate on the pillow… and countless other details and kindnesses- thank you for being such a wonderful ambabssador for Canada!
Alison ( Halifax , Nova Scotia , Canada )
October 17, 2005
This has been a wonderful start for our 2-week vacation. It felt as if we had the house to ourselves and with attentive and gracious attentions to details and our comfort. Breakfasts were outstanding- and we never needed lunch. We enjoyed the city- this is a perfect location for walking anywhere and for our out-of-town drive to Drumheller and Wayne. We will happily return Thank you for sharing this beautiful home. Warm regards.
Frida and Jack ( Carlsbad , San Diego , California , USA )
October 3-5, 2005
What a wonderful discovery- a gem of a spot tucked away in the hippest part of town- what more could a traveller ask for? Café's and boutiques at your doorstep. Downtown's a stones throw away, an elegant setting and peaceful nights of sleep. If that weren't enough, just wait ‘till breakfast! Thank you for your warmth and kindness and for having the taste and sophistication to have created such a delightful oasis. Your attention to detail and to crafting this environment was greatly appreciated.
Chris and Collette ( Toronto , Ontario , Canada )
September 21, 2005
Thank you for the hospitality. This was my first stay at a B+B, and when I arrived Saturday night, I was skeptical. After Sunday morning's breakfast, I was sold on B+B's. The peaceful atmosphere was very relaxing. Thanks for a great stay.

Quelle délicatesse et le souci du détail de notre hôte. Tout est parfait et impeccable. Pour finir nos 3 semaines de vacances nous ne pouvions demander plus. Bravo et ce gîte mérite 5* sans hésitation. Nous parcourons les gîtes depuis 15 ans à travers le globe et c'est la raison pour la quelle nous n'hésitons pas à vanter celiu-ci. Félicitations à notre hôte; il est impeccable.
André and Francine ( Laval, Québec )
August 26-27, 2005
I'm finding it very hard to find words to express our thanks and appreciation that haven't already been said so eloquently by your other guests over the years. However, we do have the dubious honour of being your first guests to turn up a day early. We arrived late on a Friday night, and you were just about to go to bed, but after the initial shock we were warmly welcomed and looked after so well. Thank you for taking it all in your stride and welcoming us into your home. We will be singing your praises back home to everyone we know.
Nicola and Miles ( Bristol , England )
July 27, 2005
What I found here was a B+B with real capitals. Hospitality is raised here to the level of art. Seriously, I thank you so very much. I had a wonderful stay in Calgary and one reason for that was that I fell here, as we Flemish say, with my behind in the butter.
Lieve ( Toronto , Ontario , CANADA )

My wife and I love to stay at B+B's and have done so in France, Italy, Australia, Canada, and the USA . Yours is tops in service, atmosphere, and decor. And price…most reasonable!! This is like staying at a great Mom's or Grandmum's place. Thank you so much for all your kindnesses and I wish you all the best in the future. Yours is the perfect place for an artist or art lover to stay, close to all the gallery streets, close to good ethnic restaurants, everything. I will stay here myself next time in Calgary , and recommend it to all in Ottawa and Saskatchewan , my home province.
Russell ( Ottawa , Ontario , Canada )

January 28-31, 2005
Top marks for your attention to detail!! You have a special knack for making your B+B a home away from home. Congratulations, and may you have many guests and much praise for lots of years to come. (We'll even give you credit for the balmy above zero temperatures in the midst of winter.)
John and Ruth ( Blomingdale , Ontario , Canada )
November 18-20, 2004
I had a wonderful three nights' stay. Comfortable bed! Love that bathtub. I also enjoyed admiring all the little touches that have gone into creating this atmosphere- the salt and pepper in miniature silver garden pail and watering can, the tiny Santa in his house on the windowsill above the tub. It reminds me of searching for treasures in those children's “I spy” books. The breakfasts were excellent, especially the gorgeous presentation. You were helpful as I found my way around Calgary. Thank you.
Patti ( Whitehorse , Yukon , Canada )
October 7, 2004

Michael and Charlene ( Edmonton , Alberta , Canada )
September 7-11, 2004
Bed and Breakfast? How about “Lap of Luxury”?! Charming character and warm ambiance describe both your excellent accommodations and hosting. Then there's the food that's TOO BEAUTIFUL TO EAT, BUT TOO DELICIOUS NOT TO! Thanks for making me welcome and at home in Calgary !
Jasmine ( Port Coquitlam , British Columbia , Canada )
August 23-24, 2004
Thank you for hosting me these past couple of days. Before coming here I heard stories about your ability to put up amazing meals and it all turned out to be larger than life. I am no expert in B&B's as this is my first time staying at one, but I am pretty sure that whatever B&B I go to from now on will look pale in comparison. Thanks.
Jasprit ( New Delhi , India )
August 3, 2004
Thank you for a lovely nights stay. I wish I could have stayed longer and explored more of Calgary . I hope the rest of my accommodations are as good as here- although I think that may be too much to wish for. Many thanks for an amazing breakfast.
Jon (Chidester, West Sussex, England )
July 15-19, 2004
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Staying with you is much better than a “home away from home”- it is a luxury. We greatly appreciated your warm and friendly hospitality and thoroughly enjoyed your fantastic breakfasts. We survived your Calgary heat wave and loved the Stampede. Thanks again-Love and Best Wishes Sarah and Michael (Pembroke Dock, Pembrokeshire, Wales )
July 13-15, 2004

June 27, 2004
After five hours flying and even more time in airports, followed by seeing all I could on foot, of your beautiful city- the comforts of your thick towels, hot water and gentle bed have been restorative. And your hospitality! This has been a lovely place to stay.
P.S. I can't believe I ate the whole breakfast! It was superb! I may never eat again and die happy.
Coreen ( Lebanon , Connecticut , USA )
June 25-27, 2004
What a treat! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Your breakfasts are amazing, we were the envy of our cohorts who foolishly stayed in a hotel! Your home is a treat. We hope to see you again next time we're in Calgary . Chris and Martin ( Spruce Grove , Alberta , Canada )

Thank you for the wonderful trip. This was the best and most relaxing business trip I have ever had.

I will definitely recommend your place to all my friends and I hope I can come back soon.

A magnificent home provided by a welcoming, interesting and equally magnificent host. I was travelling alone, for the first time every, and was nervous, but felt safe and secure in your haven here. I appreciate all the care you've put into making your B&B such a warm and restful place to be!
Anita, ( Winnipeg , Manitoba , Canada )
April 25-30, 2004
I have never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast place in my life, but coming to Canada for the first time, I decided to be adventurous. At first, I was a little nervous because B&B's were new to me but right away my fears were calmed, making me feel right at home and like I belonged. In the words of many African American people in the U.S. “This place is the bomb”. “The bomb” means awesome, incredible, wonderful, amazing. As a host you are a bomb as well. And oh, my gracious, … what can I say about those amazing breakfasts. Wow!! I mean I was treated like royalty. Breakfast service was elaborate and each morning I waited in anticipation to see what delicacies were being whipped up in the kitchen. The house is very warm and welcoming. Everyone should be so fortunate to have the privilege of staying here. I felt as if I were home… safe, welcomed, and well fed. I hope you stay in business for a long time because I will definitely be back. Many blessings,

I have stayed at other B&B's in Calgary and I have to say yours tops the
list! Your home has an amazing warmth to it! I'm not sure how you captured such a great feeling of comfort, but don't change it! The breakfast was truly amazing- the best I've had! I would certainly come back and recommend you to anyone.

Thank you for everything. Either the normal ones or the “experimental” ones, all the breakfasts were perfect (I'll say as delicious as Belgian chocolates). I think that you could be raised to the breakfast's “master degree”. Thanks also for the advice about how and where to go to visit and what to buy.
I'll finish those words with a Brussel's expression: “Ces peis sont de toffe manneken”.
Thanks and see you for my next trip to Calgary .

Thank you for a most comfortable bed, a most delicious breakfast, a most well-stocked bathroom, a most comfortable atmosphere and your most gracious hosting! We loved Calgary and enjoyed catching up with our Toronto friends who have moved West. Your great, central location allowed us to explore 17th Avenue and enjoy the many shops.

Thank you for a very pleasant stay at your lovely home, so ideally located, just a stroll from the city centre. Your breakfasts were a special treat, and your hospitality most enjoyable. The sitting room is very welcoming at the end of a busy day, a peaceful haven in which to unwind. Thanks again.

I depend upon the good graces of strangers when I travel, but I don't always expect warmth and hospitality. The food and the accommodation were excellent, of course. But I appreciate most how I felt at home. Hope to see you again soon.

Thank you so much for marking our first ever at a bed and breakfast an enjoyable experience. You are a very warm, welcoming and gracious host and everything is so immaculate. One can tell you've taken great care with the décor- the antiques are beautiful, and the gourmet breakfasts outstanding. Thank you for all the pampering. We wish you continued success and will happily recommend the Mount Royal Bed and Breakfast to family and friends.

We had a lovely stay! The private deck was a wonderful space and the comforts of our room very decadent (especially the wedding anniversary surprise for us!)
Thank you for the attention to detail, your friendly personality and a great weekend.

Your place is truly a home away from home- with much better food. Keep me a copy of the first printing of your recipe book.

What a beautiful and clean place to stay! Loved the breakfast, and check out the built-in ironing board. I'll be back!

Exceptional…. What more can we say? We thoroughly enjoyed our stay @ Mt. Royal . The old world charm and gourmet breakfasts will linger for days and most likely months to come. Your tireless efforts and attention to our many questions and your knowledge of the local history provided us with a great introduction to Calgary .
The proximity of so many great restaurants and shops certainly added to the enjoyment of our visit.We will be back, slimmer, and ready to enjoy. Thanks so much for making this the highlight of the summer.

Madeleine and Janne came from the sticks in Sweden with no expectations and were fortunate enough to land at your place. We have enjoyed the atmosphere of your place so much, and have to leave with mixed emotions. You have spoilt us rotten, and it will take us a while to get back on track again.
Your beds are great (that's important too…) and your breakfasts- they will stay with us for a long time. As will the notion of feeling welcome into your charming place, we thoroughly enjoyed our chats on the porch. Thank you so much!!

If bed and breakfasts were rated this would definitely be a 5 star. Food excellent, and you are so thoughtful and kind. Had a wonderful stay, and enjoyed our little chats.
Thank you for making us so comfortable after a long journey.
Off to hike and wear off the big breakfasts!!!! Many best wishes for the future. Hope to stay here again ASAP. Thanks once again.

Thank you for your hospitality, generosity and great breakfasts. I have enjoyed a very comfortable and productive time here (and Alberta Supernet thanks you). Your fine establishment has an old world charm and proves that traditional values of class and grace are always in style- Again, Thank you.

Do you believe we finally came to stay? After having you come to stay at our B&B many times, it was so nice to be on the other side. Congratulations on your B&B. It looks great! You've done a wonderful job; breakfast was yummy! We will definitely recommend your place to our friends and family. From two B&B owners to you- you're place is the epitomy of what this business should be! Thanks for everything, especially for making our anniversary special!

I'm so glad we braved wintry roads and came from our B&B to stay overnight at yours. I must say, you've done an exceptional job in setting up your B&B. It's lovely, and so comfortable. The food was superb and the fresh orange juice was a special touch. Thank you so much for your generosity and hospitality.

Thank you for wonderful breakfast and nice hospitality. The Mount Royal B&B is most beautiful B&B in Canada , if not in the world. I was lucky to stay here.
Thank you. I hope I stay again when I come to Calgary .
