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.

Why Richard Norton-Hall chose Alberta

Though operating as a bed and breakfast the suite is let here for the exclusive use of this letting. Making this a private apartment in the mountains.

Richard and Allison could not have been better hosts. Our privacy was assured but when we needed something help was right at hand. The. Amenities were excellent and the location, on a quiet street, was superb! We recommend the Banff Bear to anyone who wants a quiet and convenient stay in Banff!

This B&B is in an ideal location in Banff! The accommodations were comfortable. It felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

The Banff Bear B&B was a wonderful location for our vacation in Banff. We stayed for 7 nights and felt as cozy as we would have been in our own home. Alison and Richard are wonderful hosts. They gave us privacy but were available when we needed them. Richard offered several great recommendations for hikes and restaurants. The B&B is located in the absolute best spot in Banff because it is less than a 10 minute walk to numerous trails along the bow river, tunnel mountain and downtown. Also the Banff Centre for the arts is within walking distance. The Centre has great restaurants and jazz in the evening. We highly recommend Banff Bear B&B!

Fell in love with Banff!

  • 5 of 5

Banff Bear was a perfect base camp for our family of four to experience the town of Banff as well as the park. We were minutes from everything that we wanted to see, within a short walk to town yet on a quiet street. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and tasteful, and Richard and Alison were lovely hosts. Honestly, our stay could not have been better!

Banff was great! The property was great! The owner was great!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Bear B&B for a 6-day trip to Banff, mainly to run the Banff marathon and to explorer the area for the first time. We enjoyed the small town, the great scenery, the cool weather, the friendly people and the marathon itself. The location was great. It was three blocks from Banff avenue, close enough for walking and far enough to be quiet. Richard took great care of us, providing detailed instructions and going beyond his duty to help us what we needed. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Banff.
