Stay and enjoy warm hospitality in this Award Winning Guesthouse/B&B. Relax in the hot tub or sit on our covered deck, breathe fresh mountain air, and enjoy life at the pace it was intended to be lived. Our 5 European style bedrooms come with private bathrooms/shower and down duvet covered beds. Some of the other amenities we offer are a fully equipped guest kitchen, a cozy guest living room with satellite TV and a gas fire place, internet (WiFi), large deck with hot tub and BBQ, optional breakfast, washer & dryer (small fee), a storage room for bikes, ski/board equipment, fishing gear, etc., - and much more... The Smithers Guesthouse is located within five minutes walking to downtown shopping and restaurants, but still far enough that you can find and enjoy scenic walking trails, recreation parks and the famous Bulkley River (for Salmon & Steelhead fishing)!

Great Place in Smithers, B.C.

My elderly mother and I had a fabulous night at the Guesthouse - we just wished we could have stayed longer! Comfortable twin beds in a nice big room with a huge bathroom (big enough for a family in there). Clean, elegant, comfortable, fabulous kitchen, hot tub with a fabuluous view of the mountains, and the family who own the business are incredibly nice and helpful. And, Smithers is beautiful!!! A wonderful stay - thank you so much!

The best and cleanest place in Smithers

My friend and I stayed with you over the August (2012) long weekend and had a fabulous time. The guesthouse is absolutely a home away from home, and now my 'go to' when passing through Smithers. Everything is spotlessly clean and tidy as well, which was much appreciated. We didn't comment on the dining as we provided our own meals but enjoyed having a well-equipment kitchen in which to do this. Thank you, Wendy. We will absolutely be back!

This is a great and very clean guesthouse with cozy rooms, a well-equipped kitchen, a wonderful deck with barbecue grill and free internet access. The owner, Hans, is exceptionally friendly and seems to know everything about the area. The breakfast is a true highlight - fresh fruit, freshly baked bread and delicious cheese, really yummy! We really enjoyed our stay there and would always come back!

wonderful place to stay

I stayed there in August and it was the best accomodation during my 3-week trip. The rooms are cozy and very clean and the breakfast was literally the best I have ever had. They have a really nice deck with a beautiful lookout and I enjoyed a nice barbecue. You can see from all the little details that the owners Hans & Tina love their job. Unfortunately I stayed there only 1 night, but Smithers has so much to offer, so next time I'll stay longer!

Parfait Perfect

We stayed for one night in September, everything was perfect from the clean room and bathroom, to the superb breakfast and the very nice welcome of Hans and Tina. One of the best place during our 3 week trip in BC and Alberta A recommander chaudement a tout point de vue, une tres bonne adresse Jean-Marc et Gabrielle Alsace France

We wanted to stay for one night, but booked for one more. Such a nice place to stay and wonderful owners. Really willing to help you with all your questions. Nice comfortable rooms, really with very clean showers and toilets, very modern, but cozy at the same time! Really a recommendation for anyone who passes by Smithers!

One of the best places to stay in BC!

Unfortunately, we could only stay one nihgt at the Smithers Guesthouse. When I saw the house from the inside and particularly the large terrasse from which you can oversee the mountains, I wished we had more time to spend at this warmely decorated site! The hosts, Hans and Tina are extraordinarily kind and helplful. The huge breakfast is absolutely outstanding!
