Who are we?

The new owners of At Wits End are Peter & April Wood. We have lived in Banff for too many years to mention!  We are excited to share our love and knowledge of the area with our guests.

When Peter is not playing in his garden..he is on the golf course. He plays over 100 rounds in our short season.   He would be happy to play a round with you.

April has worked in the service industry for over 20 years and will make your comfort and enjoyment her top priority.   When she is not working she is out walking the dogs.

And the dogs…our girls, Ruby and Jedda are very much a part of the family. They are happy to share the garden and fire pit area with our guests.

And the boys…we have two young men that you might bump into… Michael is busy working, biking, hiking, skiing or traveling.  Jack is at the golf course or competing in tournaments when not away at school.

I met Pete 3 years ago on the Banff springs golf course and he mentioned him and his wife had a BNB in Banff. My wife and I had the opportunity to experience the BNB in Jan 2016. It was wonderful , clean and well equipped . The room had flat screen TV , washroom well appointed. We would recommend this highly, also very reasonable.

Warm, welcoming and wonderful!!

After a long couple days on the road from Minneapolis, MN we arrived in Banff and were greeted by April- who definitely has the gift of hospitality! Our stay with Peter and April was relaxing, comfortable and more than an enjoyable experience. We were impressed with the flexibility offered to accommodate our morning schedule, and April went so far as to prepare breakfast ahead of time so we could take it with us when we left early! Always a delicious meal, whether we ate at the B&B or on the run. The room was comfortable and clean, and the yard was welcoming with several places to sit and relax with a glass of wine. We have already recommended this place to others considering a visit to Banff!!

Generous beyond measure

Jul 27, 2012 by Polly Aird

I had a car accident on our way back to At Wit's End for the second night. April, seeing the damage to the car, immediately brought out glasses of wine for us while Peter called the mechanic to set up an appointment for the next morning. The next day, Peter took me down to the mechanic, who pronounced the car not drivable, and then began a long string of phone calls to make arrangement for the insurance, tow truck, body shop, etc. As new guests were expected, we procured another place to stay, and April drove us and our luggage there in the late afternoon. The Woods were like family by that time! I cannot sing their praises more highly.

We loved it!!

We arrived at this b&b on very short notice and really were at our "wits end". We were welcomed like family and everything was first class. The suite was very comfortable with high quality bedding and a large bathroom. The kitchen in the common area was fully stocked with snacks and beverages of all kinds and the hot breakfast was awesome. There is also a lovely outdoor space for guests to use. Thanks April and Peter for a wonderful stay.

A Wonderful Stay

Thank you April and Peter for a wonderful stay AT WITS END B&B. We enjoyed our stay with you and indeed in Banff itself immensely! We both felt welcomed and at home with your great hospitality and would thoroughly recommend AT WITS END to anyone we know who is traveling out this way! We would definitely stay with you again. Thank you for everything.

A Warm Welcome..

After a long tiring 17 hour journey, Wits End is exactly the kind of place you want to arrive at. A warm welcome, a clean & modern bed and breakfast. We have been blown away by your hospitality, the delicious breakfasts to set up set us up for a day’s skiing, the packed lunches and the rides to the bus stop in the mornings, all of which have contributed to a fantastic holiday. I dislike large hotels intensely as they’re noisy and impersonal. I try and search out locally owned B &B’s and at wits end we definitely struck gold. The best I’ve ever stayed at. It really has felt like home. The Hospitality Industry is lucky to have you. Thanks very much April & Peter.

Thank you for the 5 star hospitality! We enjoyed our stay and loved the delicious breakfast and snacks you provided. We will definitely be back and we will be sure to let our friends know about your wonderful B&B. Thanks again April and Peter for your gracious hospitality.

“Convenient B and B in Banff”

Apr 02, 2012 by JaneTucson

My husband and I stayed with Barbara and Vic for three nights while on our road trip to National Parks. It was about an 8 minute walk from their B and B to downtown Banff which was was great. They gave us tips on hikes and even gave us a guide book for one day. Breakfast was plentiful and served at 8 a.m. My only thought here is that we couldn't get an earlier start to do and see things in the national park., so we wish it could have been served earlier.
I e-mailed Barbara early in 2009 and we developed a great friendship by internet. When we arrived I felt we were cousins! Great place to stay in Banff.

“Good location, most helpful owners”

Apr 02, 2012 by Rich Barton

Location is good - short walk to town centre, on bus route to gondola, hot springs, monstosity that is the Banff Springs Hotel. I'd recommend taking one of the good-sized en-suite rooms. There is a guest sitting room with fridge, microwave. comfortable chairs and lots of tourist information. Breakfast was excellent. Hosts Barbara and Vic are warm, friendly and do their best to ensure you enjoy your stay, with good advice on where to go, what to do and suggestions for where to eat.
