"Practically perfect in every way"
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... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"unique and well placed"
Overall excellent- staff (Alberto)very welcoming and helpful in every way, Room clean and comfortable. 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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming hotel great service"
09/11/14 Dave W
The English Bay Inn (not to be confused with the English Bay Hotel) is a charming bed and breakfast hotel located near to Stanley Park and English Bay. Easy walk to the downtown shopping areas. Very convenient for wide range of good restaurants, huge variety of ethnic and Canadian places to eat. The rooms are not huge, but have charm including things like four poster beds. There is a nice outdoor area to sit. The service was great, checkin was normally 4pm but when they heard we were flying in at lunchtime they suggested early checkin which was really useful. Breakfast was good, the service at breakfast was very friendly Alberto cooked a very tasty omelette and seemed very aware of the guests food preferences and allergies so tailored things to suit. The breakfast experience was interesting as it was served in the dining room with all the guests (7 when we were there) sharing a table which made for good conversation. There was also a separate table for two in an alcove if you are on a romantic couple trip or not a morning person.

We visited here this summer and found the location to be the best reason to stay here. The other guests were delightful and we enjoyed talking with them. No in room coffee or tea and no kitchen privileges were a drawback.

We recently stayed at the English Bay Inn during our trip to Vancouver. Our stay was absolutely amazing. We arrived early in the morning, way before check in, and the staff was very accommodating to get our room ready as soon as possible and called us when it was done. Alberto went out of his way to help us find our way around town, make suggestions on places to visit and help us arrange transportation. The breakfasts were amazing! Every morning there was fresh fruit and juice prepared and the dishes were absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants an intimate place to stay in a great location. We will certainly be back.

The location of the English Bay Inn is perfect. A lovely walk to Stanley Park and the seawall. Our host, Alberto, was charming as well as an amazing chef. We spent three comfortable nights here topped off by the best three breakfasts we've ever experienced in our B&B stays throughout the world.
"Magical location; charming property."
08/12/14 Lucinda P Sydney, Australia
The first thing which strikes me about this property is the location at English Bay. Surrounded by technicolour gardens and minutes from the beach, eateries and walking distance from central Vancouver this location is ideal for somebody who wants to be close in while still in a residential district rather than downtown. Rooms were spacious and tastefully furnished. Hosts extremely helpful and went out of their way to be of assistance. Full silver and fine china breakfast and great variety of foot. Comfortable pubic spaces given there are only 5 rooms.
"Wonderful stay !"
08/11/14 Susan P Ottawa, Canada
We stayed at the Inn for two nights while exploring Vancouver. The staff were welcoming and the breakfasts hit the right note - tasty and healthy! The location worked for us - we walked downtown and also used the bus system and being close to Stanley Park and English Bay was a plus. Highly recommend it as an alternative to impersonal large hotels.

My husband and I discovered this lovely place at the last minute. What great luck. The location is wonderful, the accommodations comfortable and impeccably clean and appointed. Breakfast is delicious and interesting every day and Alberto, our host, could not have been more gracious and helpful. I highly recommend the inn and hope to return.

Although the English Bay Inn B & B wasn't conventionally hosted by a couple, Alberto did a fantastic job at being a friendly and talented host. When we arrived he took the time and pleasure to give us the grand tour of the lovely late 1950's guest house. Common rooms were well appointed in gorgeous furniture and decor. We stayed in room 5 for 2 nights which was a unique 2 floor room with upgraded bathroom. Breakfasts were gourmet French toast loaded with fresh fruit and baked apple and eggs Benedict on day 2 both presented beautifully. Alberto was both charming and helpful and we would not hesitate to return.
"Fabulous Location, Delightful Inn"
07/18/14 pegrw KY
Located two blocks from the beach and Vancouver's sea wall, two blocks from Stanley Park, two blocks from a delicious assortment of international eateries, and two blocks from the bus stops. There cannot be a more convenient location. The Inn is nestled between two high raises in a charming, quiet, beautiful residential neighborhood. The breakfasts are delicious; served in a beautiful dining room. Fresh fruit, wonderful coffee and mouth watering entrees. We stayed three nights and each morning was different and yummy. A private courtyard in the back was wonderful to retire to for A drink and relaxing. Alberto our host made arrangements for us to park our car. If you will have a car during your stay be sure to let Alberto know in advance. I highly recommend the English Bay Inn.
"Charming and welcoming spot in great location"
07/13/14 JKS55 Andover, Massachusetts
This small, intimate, and beautifully decorated B&B is the perfect spot to walk to many sites in Vancouver. Alberto is there to welcome you and cook a wonderful breakfast with fruit and a different main dish each morning. We took advantage of enjoying the living room and the covered outdoor patio to enjoy a glass of wine and snacks. We were close to Stanley Park and the Seawall walk where we enjoyed walks in the evening along the water. The inn is set among apartment buildings, but there are a few other Tudor style homes in the neighborhood, especially the home across the street with beautiful gardens. If you want a full service hotel, then this is not the place for you. If you enjoy small and intimate spots where you can walk to restaurants and hop the small water ferries or water taxis, then you must come to the English Bay Inn.
