This B&B accommodation is in the basement flat in a house on a very quiet street in an affluent area of Jasper where we received a very warm welcome.

The large, well furnished main room had two settees, armchair, desk and chair, breakfast bar and comfortable bed. There was a microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge and coffeemaker with a good assortment of good quality cutlery, crockery etc. There was a good supply of books and magazines plus local maps and guides. Karen is a wealth of information about things to do and see, as well as local walks.

The large, pleasant bathroom was very well supplied with good towels, but the shower was very tight for a manly sixfooter. A complimentary laundry service was also offered.

Materials are supplied for a self-serve continental breakfast and these were plentiful with home-made bread, jams and yogurt.

There was an outside sitting area under cover in a small, secluded garden.

Cleanliness was of a high standard.

Wireless internet was fast. Parking was on street but presented no problems.

This was a quiet, convenient, comfortable place in which we spent four nights and can thoroughly recommend to others.
