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.

Great location, tastefully done!

  • 4 of 5

We spent five nights at Banff bear. The unit is very nice with comfy beds. We did not have a car and walked to town every day. It's only a couple of blocks and close to the river trail and bridge. Owners were very nice!! We would recommend this property.

My brother and I stayed for 10 nights in Feb/March. We found it was clean and tidy, helpful owners and very convenient for walking to Banff Avenue for dinner etc.

If we're back in Banff again soon, will definitely look at staying here again.

Thanks

We had a memorable experience!

  • 5 of 5

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!
