Positive Reviews

Great location close to the centre of Vancouver.

This bed and breakfast is located in an exclusive Vancouver neighbourhood just outside of the downtown district. The centre of British Columbia's biggest city can be reached in less than ten minutes' by car.

Quiet premises make it easy to relax and unwind.

If you want to enjoy some peace and quiet while in Vancouver this place offers just that. The premises provides a great place to relax, with tranquil gardens and good soundproofing in the rooms. The surrounding neighbourhood is also very quiet too.

Tasty breakfast to enjoy each morning you're here.

Wake up to a delicious morning meal when you book a room here, there is plenty to choose from on the menu and all the ingredients used are top quality. All meals are prepared to order and large portions are provided so you won't go hungry.

Negative Reviews

Staff are not always around to help you.

Besides from when you check in and during breakfast, you might not see much of the staff who work here. Unfortunately this means that when you need something there might not be a member of staff on hand to help straightaway.

Cleanliness is simply not up to scratch here.

Not enough is being done to keep this place clean and tidy, with much more effort needed from the housekeeping staff. Many of the rooms have a musty smell which is rather unpleasant, so something needs to be done about this.

Proper maintenance is needed at this property.

This historic house has certainly seen better days, and not enough is being done to keep it in good condition. You're likely to encounter things like weak locks on the doors and worn out carpets. Some renovation work would do much to improve this place.
