Premium King Guestroom
During our stay at Carriage House Inn we opted to stay in the Premium King Guestroom which was perfect for our needs and provided a very comfortable night’s sleep. With fantastic city views, aesthetically pleasing decor, spacious and comfortable furniture we almost didn’t want to leave to explore the city.
Furnished with a large window, it was a brilliant way to wake up in the morning and seeing those views. It comes with a large king size bed that was honestly so comfortable we really did struggle to get up in the mornings. We had our own large and modern ensuite bathroom, table & chairs, air-conditioning/heater, plenty of power points, coat hooks, mirror and of coffee machine.
What you get
The Inn comes equipped with free toiletries, strong Wi-Fi, fluffy pillows, clean towels, soft linens, coffee making facilities, fridge, 43′ flatscreen TV, bluetooth clock radio, inform safe, iron/ironing board, complimentary breakfast and plenty of space for you to relax in.
The Outdoor Pool & Jacuzzi
The outdoor pool is a superb way to unwind and relax after a hard day of exploring the city. With fresh clean water, plenty of sun loungers, towels and a view of the hotel its the best spot to be. Not to mention it also has a jacuzzi right next to it too. Perfect!
The Fitness Centre
Still want to keep fit while away on the road? Then the inn has the perfect gym and fitness centre for you. It comes equipped with everything you could possibly need including free weights, bicycle machines and treadmills.
Explore the city
The city is only a short drive away or around a 30 minute walk, here you will find plenty of shops, malls, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Its quite a large city compared to most of the surrounding towns and well worth making the most of if venturing into the mountains.
The Public Library
This library is definitely well worth a visit purely for its architecture and also to continue the book theme of this B&B. All joking aside, this library truely is remarkable and it is often packed out with locals and tourists alike.
By Ollia Macarons & Tea
If you fancy a bit of a treat and delicious lunch time snack then I would highly recommend heading to Ollia for some delicious macarons and tea. There are plenty of flavours to choose from and its such a delightful atmosphere, with the option of learning how to make them as well.
The Calgary Tower
Every major Canadian city has an impressive means to get a birds eye view of all the action and Calgary is no different. One of the best ways to orient yourself around any city is to get above it all and the Calgary Tower, some 1228 meters above sea level gives you a 360 view of the city. Once your breath has been completely stolen, head to the second observation deck and enjoy a cocktail, some appetizers and the best view in town.
The Calgary Zoo
Canada is home to a number of highly respected zoos, and the Calgary Zoo has not only joined the ranks, it leads the charge in terms of successful breeding programs, diversity of animals, research dollars and educational programs. The Calgary Zoo will take you on a journey through the heart of Africa with Hippos, Mountain Gorillas, Giraffes and anything else you might find on the Serengeti. Come get a feel for Canada’s wilderness and watch playful grizzlies and mischievous mountain goats.
Catch some ice hockey
You can’t go to Canada without seeing an ice hockey game. With 7 NHL teams and millions of fans across the country. The province of Alberta is home to two Stanley Cup champion teams, the Calgary Flames and the Edmonton Oilers, home of the ‘Great One’, Wayne Gretzky. If you have the opportunity to visit Calgary between the months of October – April, treat yourself to some of the most exciting, fast-paced hockey in the league by seeing either team play.
Heading outside of Calgary city centre, you will need a car to reach this utterly unique and quirky landscape. It is well known for its dinosaur fossils with plenty of museums to check these out. Plus the actual landscapes themselves are truely remarkable and will leave you looking out across the horizon mesmerised.

This Inn is a great place to stay due to its central location, and the perfect place to stay while in Calgary. I am so glad that we chose to stay here for a nights – it’s the chillest place in the town with everything you could need.
The room was fantastic, we had a super comfortable night sleep and really enjoyed watching the sun rise from our bed and large window. The pool was my favourite feature as it was a great way to chill out and relax. The staff are also so friendly; they can honestly not do enough for you to make your stay that little bit more comfortable than what it already is.
You will want to spend longer
The city we found was sleepy but there are plenty of things to do. It is surrounded by beautiful parks and countryside which are absolutely breath-taking and you will find yourself soaking them up the whole time you’re there. When you throw in the close proximity to the shops, bars, restaurants and all of the other attractions you are onto a winner!
If you are in Calgary, Canada, and you want to have a unique Inn experience, I would highly recommend Carriage House Inn.
