It was AWESOME!! It far exceeded my expectations. The house is a delight with so many decorations to feast your eyes on. It was like walking into a dream. The breakfast table is just as the pictures and you feel like Lady Grantham from Downton Abbey. The room was great, fireplace and sitting area so cozy! Very comfortable king bed. A nice touch was the white bathrobes. We took multiple baths in the enormous jetted tub. The room is new and modern with old touches that fit right into the period. The best of both worlds. I would take a trip to Vancouver just to enjoy this house! By the way vancouver is a great city and this house is in the perfect location to walk to fine restaurants and the waterfront. We are gluten intolerant and Alberto made us perfect breakfasts and served one of the best breads we have had. We even got french toast the last day. It was such a treat to dine in this room. Alberto even gave us a map and showed us where to go, he was very helpful. And having the map made our driving experience much easier.

We booked three nights at the English Bay Inn to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We honeymooned here all those years ago and thought it would be romantic to return on our big anniversary. We were not disappointed! We stayed in Room #5. The bed was very comfortable and the jetted bathtub was wonderful. The booking and check in processes were easy. Alberto was friendly and kind. His breakfasts were scrumptious. We will be sure to come again!

This was an anniversary stay, our first at the English Bay Inn in 12 years. We were greeted warmly and Annette and John made our stay just wonderful. They're delightful people to talk to and cook a grand breakfast, too. The Inn is beautifully furnished yet cozy. Best of all, it's only a block to Stanley Park and excellent West End restaurants are within an easy walk. It's also easy to reach downtown and Granville Island by bus.

The B&B is spotless. Alberto was wonderful. The room we had was not conducive to "hanging out" in - one hard chair and a bed to high to get into. But, it was clean as a whistle and we were rarely in the room! Between the living room and the outside patio, there were several beautiful spots to read and relax. 2 blocks from beach and 4 blocks from restaurants, clubs, stores, etc. I enjoyed having breakfast at one large table in the dining room - unusual but interesting. Breakfast was decadent...

This is our 2nd time at English Bay with 2nd time under new ownership. Alfredo (house manager) met us at the door and was most friendly and accomodating. He gave us ideas of places to eat, things to see in the West oend of Vancouver. The breakfast meals were well prepared and most certainly ample. Eggs Benedict day one and a quiche on day two with both meals added fruit and muffins. Check out was easy. Though we used public transportation and didn't need Alfredo's help, we do know that he graciously helped another guest with taxi reservations. Alfredo always had a smile on his face and truly made us feel welcome during our stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4-day stay at the English Bay Inn B&B. The location is excellent, only a block from English Bay, and 2 blocks from the variety of ethnic restaurants on Denman Street. The neighbourhood is quiet and beautiful. Our room was #5, the loft. It is tastefully decorated, as is the whole house, and has an extremely comfortable bed. The gas fireplace offered a cozy spot, and the skylights allowed sunshine to brighten the loft areas. Alberto was a very gracious host who served full, delicious breakfasts (which were different every morning). We observed Alberto's hospitality in catering to other guests' dietary requests and in responding helpfully to their inquiries re: travel details. We highly recommend this B&B, and are hopeful that #5 will be available on our next visit to Vancouver!

Good B&B however room 3 is really only big enough for single occancy. Good breakfasts, sets you up for the day. Public transport a short walk away and Stanley Park is on the door step. Local area is well caterered for with many restaurants bars and coffee shops. Staff only available at breakfast. The B&B lacked tea/coffee making facilities, though I understand this is due to change.

From the moment we arrived, Alberto was the most gracious host. Our loft room was wonderfully appointed and access to the garden, from the fire escape, was a treat. With an evening glass of wine under the gazebo who would of thought there was wildlife in the city.....you'll have to find out for yourself! From enjoying a complimentary glass of port in the formal living room to the exquisite breakfast, where the conversation with other guest flowed effortlessly, we had an amazing time. The location was perfect with a short stroll to English Bay where the music of young musicians filled the air. This was our first B&B and we're afraid other B&B's might not live up to this standard. We will absolutely be booking here again. Cheers Brenda & Barret

The Inn traditional and homely in style although a litle squashed between larger blocks.Lovely garden back and front(former very private) and breakfast individually prepared and served - more than we could eat.Ideal location close to English Bay and restaurants/shops in Denman St. Due to change of ownership our booking had been lost so only had 2 nights instead of three but owner arranged excellent alternative accommodation for third night paying the difference in cost. They could not do more.

"Awesome location"
05/07/15 Bueller555 Honolulu
When booking a reservation here, if you are aware of the hotel services that are not available to you, you will have a fantastic stay and enjoy every minute of the inn. The inn is quaint and is located in a residential area surrounded by apartments. You don't feel at all threatened when walking the neighborhood at night. Road noise is minimal and its proximity to Stanley Park is a great feature. The breakfasts produced by Alberto and the team were outstanding and left us full and ready for the morning. Noise from other guests were minimal with the occasional closing of doors and footsteps during the evening. We were in Room 1 and the room was nice and clean and good for our purposes. The next several items that I'm going to list are not complaints, but simply meant to raise awareness of being at this B&B. Room 1 is a bit small and since we had two suitcases, space was at a premium. The inn is an older home and the floors in our room squeak quite a bit outside the bathroom. The room doesn't have a window, but does have double doors opening over the courtyard. We weren't comfortable with leaving the door open at night, so despite the cold weather, the room with the warm comforter made things a bit too warm while sleeping. Since there isn't onsite staff there 24/7, it is best to request for things or assistance during the breakfast service. The kitchen is off limits and there aren't hotel items like a small refrigerator or ice machine available to guests. There also aren't elevators, so be aware if you have difficulty with stairs. Bottom line is that if you want or need hotel service, then stay at a hotel. If you want a great experience of being almost independent in Vancouver while having great mealtime conversations with people fro all around the world then the English Bay Inn is for you. One last piece of advice is to heed the instructions that are emailed to you upon making you reservation and just prior to your stay. The instructions are clear and worked perfectly for us. A couple of guests were locked out upon arrival as they didn't have their instructions with them and needed other guests help to get them in. It's a great inn as long as you know what to expect. My only advice to the inn for Room 1 is to see if the squeaky floors can be fixed and replace the chest below the tv with a small dresser to give guests more storage. Also, a shelf over the sink would be helpful too.

"Brilliant little B&B"
04/15/15 Anne B Nottingham, United Kingdom
We stayed at the English Bay Inn for the last two nights of our trip to Vancouver and Whistler and what a treat it was. Alberto is a fantastic host and provides the most delicious breakfasts, beautifully presented and different every day. Self check-in was very easy once we had phoned for directions (the explanatory email had got misplaced). Our room (room 3) was beautifully furnished and had the most comfortable double bed as well as as selection of books to read and a helpful restaurant guide provided by the host and previous guests. The inn is perfect for a quiet get away as it is right on the edge of Stanley Park. It is also a short walking distance away from downtown Vancouver, so convenient for getting to restaurants, bars and shops.

We had a great time staying at the English Bay Inn. Alberto was a great host who cooks amazing breakfasts. The rooms were very comfortable and it was easy to do self check-in since we were running later than anticipated. The inn is located right by Stanley Park and is only a short way from Gastown and other downtown sites in Vancouver.

"True Gem in Downtown West End"
03/30/15 Kahyun E Camrose, Canada
During our holiday in Vancouver and Vancouver Island we stayed at English Bay Inn B&B in Vancouver, the Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, two other nice B&B's on the Island, Middle Beach Lodge in Tofino, and the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver for one night when we came back to Vancouver. Of all the nice places we stayed at, English Bay Inn B&B was without any doubt my favorite. I booked this B&B in downtown Vancouver, because it had really high Tripadvisor rating and good reviews, and it is located in quiet downtown west end right next to English Bay & Stanley Park and close to commercial streets. I saw really nice pictures of the B&B's on their website so I couldn't wait to stay there. When I actually got there this B&B was EVEN NICER in real life with elegant interior decorations, antique furniture, and warm and cozy ambience throughout the house. The moment I stepped into the house I could feel I was most welcome. We, me and my partner, stayed three nights in the room with two levels (Room #5 - nice sitting room in the lower level; another cozy little sitting area by a really nice fireplace, big comfy bed and a beautiful bathroom with lots of natural light in the upper level). Our room was just clean, clean and clean. All the fabric furniture was really clean as well. The bed was so nice and comfortable. We were awakened every morning by birds of Stanley Park chirping and the smell of delicious breakfast coming up from the kitchen. Every morning we were served most beautiful, delicious and nutritious breakfast in the elegant and charming dining room with warm and homey atmosphere, which would fit for nobles. We were served tea/coffee, fresh fruit salad, bread with jam and butter, and Alberto's finest pieces of culinary art consisting of egg dishes and salad. Everything was so beautifully presented and delicious. The breakfast was definately better than the quality of a five star hotel. We also had chances to meet with other guests at breakfast time and share ideas on things to do, places to go, nice restaurants, etc. Alberto and staff were very friendly and kind. I could feel that they truly cared for their guests and their priority was guests' comfort. Throughout our stay we felt we were most valued guests and most welcomed. I would like to give more than five stars to this B&B, but there is only five. English Bay Inn B&B was the start of our most wonderful holiday. Thank you very much, Alberto and staff, for making our saty so special. PS. One thing I would like to suggest is, you need to reserve a parking space when you book this B&B as they have 3 parking spots for 6 rooms.

03/02/15 Sue P Townsville, Australia
We stayed here for 3 nights in February en route to Banff, jasper and canmore. After travelling the world and experiencing pretty much the same bland "standard" room and service this was an absolute delight. The house is impeccable in its style and presentation and was one of the most homely experiences we have had, it was hard to pack up and move on. We accidentally left my husbands work pants behind and it was no trouble for Jacy to drive these to our airport hotel 2 weeks later so we could pick them up on our return to Australia, no charge!!!!!!!! If you are looking for genuine hospitality and a classy place to be then look no further. We will definitely make this our place of choice if we return to vancouver and have recommended this bed and breakfast to everyone. Job very well done English bay inn, you are a hidden gem.""""""""
