If you are arriving by car you will need to purchase a Parks Canada Visitor Pass. This can be done at the Banff & Lake Louise Tourism site before arrival.
If advance purchase is not an option for you, and if you are arriving from the East you can stop at the Park Gates.
If arriving from the west, you can purchase a pass from the kiosk next to the Banff Visitor Centre.
Check-in is between 3:00pm and 8:00pm.
Arrivals outside these times can generally be accommodated. If it is early and your room is not ready for check-in you can register and leave your luggage so you can enjoy the rest of your day.
Park at the front for check-in; however, as parking at the front of the property is regulated and limited we will likely assign a parking space at the rear of the property.
If we ask you to park at the front of B&B for the duration of your stay we will report the Model/Make/Colour ad license plate information of your vehicle to the Town of Banff so you do not receive a ticket.
You can walk almost everywhere in Banff from Tan-Y-Bryn, or even take Roam Transit, but if you prefer to drive you should be aware that there is now a charge for most Parking in the downtown area. See Town of Banff for details.
Lake Louise is a popular destination for visitors to Banff. Parking at lakeside is limited and there is also now a charge. Consider taking Roam Transit to popular sites like Johnson Canyon and Lake Louise.
