My wife and I visited Banff in April 2011 and stayed at the Pension Tannendoff. We arrived mid afternoon and had no trouble in signing in and being given our room. (unlike many Australian hotels that wont admit you until usually 4pm) The inn had offstreet parking.
It is situated a little over 500m from the town proper. It is an easy walk and is flat the entire way. When we had to go into town from the Inn we always walked and found this exhilerating as on 2 nights it was snowing and was beautiful. There is a path which connects to the the main bridge which leads into town.
The rooms are of different standards and we had a good room a the far end of the upper storey. This room was comfortable and clean. It also had a toilet and shower. Many of the other rooms had shared facilities. We stayed from Wednesday night through Saturday night and found at this time of the year that the first 3 nights were very quiet and had relatively few guests. Saturday night was very busy and a lot noisier with many families staying to ski. People were easily heard at night in there rooms or using the toilets.
This is not the usual b & b and is more a hotel style inn. The staff were aussies and were extremely friendly and helpful. They suggested things to do and rang and booked some of them for us. Breakfasts were always good and tea and coffee were available during the day.
Our daughter was and still is working in Banff and the attractions we enjoyed were: the dogsledding (although expensive), the gondolier, the hot springs and of course Sunshine ski fields. We found The Elk and Oarsman Pub great value for lunch or dinner and had a great atmosphere.
Overall we loved Banff and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pension Tannanhof
