The Westways Scollen Room was named for Father Scollen, the first English speaking missionary in Alberta and the first missionary in the Calgary area. Father Scollen was deeply involved in negotiating Peace Treaties 6 and 7 between the First Nations People and Government of Canada. In 1873 Father Scollen founded the initial Catholic Mission in Calgary right on the banks of the Elbow River. Calgary’s 25th Ave SW from 4th Street to the Elbow River was once called Scollen Street in honour of Scollen’s influence in Calgary’s history.

“It was a living version of Downton Abbey! Easy find in the city, was greeted immediately at the front door by one of the owners who showed me to my room which was upgraded to the room with my own private sitting room! The entire home on every level has fantastic heritage photos that help with the era of this home which is over a hundred years old and has all the characteristics of a heritage home. Not only does Westway have a four legged furry friend but that this quaint B&B is dog friendly! Another big bonus is just five minutes away walking distance is a fantastic dog park along the meandering Elbow River with views of downtown. The next morning I awoke to many delicious smells coming from the kitchen where the owners were preparing a personalized hot breakfast that included melt in your mouth scrambled eggs along with a superior portion of bacon and sausage plus freshly cut fruit and your choices of yogurt or cereal. Always making sure that I was happy with my breakfast and keeping my tea constantly warm which as a tea drinker is very impressive! Westways B&B was a fantastic little gem found in a big city and will happily come back again and again!!”
