Camilla house is "perfect" I have no idea why anyone would give less than 5 stars. In any direction in this area...you would pay a LOT more for a hotel stay (double or triple), and probably not have as nice of a room/stay. The home is beautiful...the room was beautiful...and the neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. You're also within walking distance of major streets like Broadway where you can catch bus', find food/restaurants, banks, other amenities. Also located very close to many visitor attractions...we never drove more than 5 miles to get everywhere we wanted to go. Julia is the sweetest and most accommodating. She will help you with anything. I saw some comments fussing about breakfast being too late (8:30), however...that is only if you want bacon, eggs, etc., Julia has the fridge stocked with juices, milk, cereal, fruit, breads for toast, etc. I get up at 5am and had everything I wanted/needed. Bet those fancy hotels don't give free breakfast at any hour. Highly recommend to anyone staying in Vancouver.

We were in Vancouver to visit our son who is a student at UBC. He lives in Kitsilano and this B&B was very convenient. The owner, Julia, was very welcoming and gracious. Staying at her home was like staying with a good friend or relative. We will stay there again. Our suite was very spacious with a large bathroom. The living room and dining room were very nice.

This B&B is in a great area, about 3 minute walk to the bus, which goes everywhere effortlessly. We had 3 rooms in 4 nights due either to overbooking or some administrative confusion. All 3 of the rooms were very clean,a with excellent quality beds. Breakfast was eggs and bacon each morning with 3 kinds of dry cereal, toast and coffee/tea options. Host was very motivated to be helpful Vancouver had an excellent range of interesting places to see and things to do.

We really liked the location it was close to UBC and the bus lines. Staff was was very pleasant. Parking was find your own on the street, but luckily it was available. Remembering that most of Vancouver does not have AC and this was the end of July, we were extremely glad that we were in the basement, even the main floor was very hot. It was cooler in the basement. We ordered a room with a private bath and got one, but were surprised to have to walk through a public hall to get to it.

I like to get up early, have a cup of coffee and a small breakfast and head out for the day. They don't serve breakfast here until 9am, which I think is late for business and leisure travelers. We had little interaction with the hosts and no orientation or invitation to the spaces available to us to use. I would not stay here again, nor reccomend it to a friend. For the cost, it was not worth it.

I would have liked to give The Camilla House a good rating because the tree lined neighborhood was nice and the other guests were lovely. However, we encountered the inn keepers negligence and were asked to pay for their mistake, which is a poor experience indeed. The back story - We booked and paid for our room through expedia assuming that the hotels their working with regularly update expedia with their availability information. Wrong. The Camila House did not update their information and were offering a room that was already booked. When we arrived, the inn keeper greeted us and told us that her husband had not updated the expedia system and the only room that was now available would end up costing an additional $100. Let's be clear, this is not the Four Seasons but a modest B&B outside of and across the bridge from downtown Vancouver. Unfortunately for us - the out of country travelers arriving after 10 PM at night - we had limited options and chose to stay and pay the extra money. Not once did this inn keeper simply say, "oh - our error, we placed rooms on expedia that were not available, please pay for what you agreed to, this was our mistake". Didn't say that at all, so therefore, I'll do it for them and write this review warning their future guests - call and check to make sure you aren't getting shafted with having to pay for a more expensive room (like double the price expensive) when you've pre-booked and paid through a 2nd party.

Good location for us as we were to attend UBC graduation at 8:30am the next morning. Room was clean but "private bath" means room down the hall, not in the room, so do bring a bathrobe (none provided). No soap in the shower, had to use the nearly empty liquid handsoap by the sink. Inside of house is nicely decorated but grounds need maintenance; there are weeds growing up in the bricks of the patio and steps. Parking is on the street nearby; seems safe enough. Hot breakfast not served until 8:30am so we missed that, but there is a coffeepot, bread, butter, jam, cereal, bananas, juice, yogurt. Had to take the coffeepot downstairs to the bathroom to empty the old coffee and rinse the pot out before making a pot for us early risers (kitchen not available before official breakfast time). Julia was cheerful and polite, but whoever does the billing isn't too careful as we discovered that we had been billed twice for the room, once the day after we reserved through hotels.com (expected billing) and again 2 weeks later. That is still being resolved (I hope!). Turns out hotels.com does not do the billing itself on B and B's but simply passes on the credit card information, so do watch out for that! Neighborhood is not bad, small cafes are only a short walk away.

We rented two rooms for a weekend for four people in our family. The house was quite nice, well maintained, and comfortable. Julia was very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is really nice, it's easy to park (which isn't the case in a lot of Vancouver), and there's business districts with good restaurants in easy walking distance to the north and south. We didn't try out the public transit, but some of the other folks staying at the hotel at the same time had, and it wasn't too onerous to get downtown on the bus. There's both cold continental and hot food offered at breakfast, and the fridge, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker are available 24/7, along with cold cereal, beverages, and whatever else is in the refrigerator for guests to use.

the breakfast was from 8:30 am to 10:30 am. it needs to allow for earlier start. the cook/manager was very polite and considerate,but could not keep up with a larger group. resulting in one couple needing to leave without a meal. when the breafkast did arrive, there were delightful sausage dumpling . the following day we had to leave by 8:00 am - therefore no breakfast for us. a querk -the toaster and coffee machine could not be used at the same time.

I booked a room expecting an ensuite. On arrival I was given a room in the dungeon with bathroom down the hall. The hotel was beautifull presented but the expectation that you would take your shoes off at the door was somewhat annoying. The B&B was well positioned between the city and the University.

The room was comfortable ,though we got bumped from our original King bedroom to a queen sized ,due to admin. mix up .No great problem though ,and room was very convenient by the front door .Place was quiet ,and easy parking available on the road .Breakfast was sociable with the other guests ,and cooked by the hard working owner .The circuit breaker blew when toaster ,coffee maker and kitchen equipment were all hard at work ,but the slight delay heightened our appetite .

The location was very convenient for our purposes; the room was small but adequate; the hostess was very friendly. The common areas were very clean. Our only concern was the level of housekeeping in our room. The card on the desk stated the room would be cleaned daily but we arrived back to unmade beds, uncleaned bathroom and full garbage containers. We had to ask for fresh towels. The second day the bathroom was cleaned and fresh towels provided but the beds were unmade. Also the card on the desk stated breakfast would be served at 8:30 but the hostess informed us breakfast was at 9:00. We would have preferred an earlier breakfast time.

This is a nice house, run by a nice couple. I arrived late in the afternoon on Halloween. However, they had left a note on the front door for me, telling me to call them as they were out trick or treating. When I called, they explained the door opening code. The house is clean, tidy, modern, and well kept. My room was really nice. The owners are really nice friendly people. I would recommend this place, without reservation.

Tout ce qu'on attend d'un B&B. L'hôtesse est très attentionnée, on se sent accueilli à la maison. Le quartier résidentiel est verdoyant, paisible, sûr, proche des transports en commun. Le bémol serait que certaines chambres sont situées au sous-sol, niveau cave, avec donc avec arelativement peu de lumière. Et les murs ne sont pas trop insonorisés. On entend ronfler dans la chambre à côté. Mais comme point de chute dans le quartier de Kitsilano, c'est une bonne adresse.

バスルーム付きの部屋を予約したのにもかかわらず、一度部屋から出て、廊下を挟んだ場所のバスルームを使うように指示され驚きました。もし、部屋の中にバスが欲しい場合はスイーツを選択しなくてはいけないんだそう。ランドリーは無料で使用出来、一度洗濯機に洗い物をしかけておくと後は乾燥までやってくださったので、大変助かりました。また共同ですが無料でパソコンを使用できるようになっているので、ネットでいろいろ調べることが出来、助かりました。無料WiFiの宿泊先は多いですが、自分で端末を持っていないと使用できないことが多いのでこれは本当に助かりました。近隣にはスーパーやTake Outの店も多いので、便利でした。バス停も近いので簡単に観光地へ行くことも可能でした。バス停が近いとはいえ、バスの通る大きな道からはかなり住宅地に入った立地なので、静かで快適に眠ることが出来ました。

abbiamo scelto questo b&b in particolare per la possibilita' di parcheggio. Avendo letto precedenti recensioni avevamo ben presente i pro e contro. Il quartiere residenziale e' tranquillo e gradevole e permette il parcheggio. La villetta gradevole ma le camere al piano inferiore (quasi sotto il piano stradale) possono dare sensazione di chiuso. La colazione, anche se spartana, meglio delle aspettative. L'usanza delle scarpe all'ingresso non ci ha dato particolari problemi.

L'accueil par une jeune femme au nom d'emprunt est agréable, mais difficile de dire que l'accueil était parfait, car trop bruyant. L'accueil se fait devant les chambres et sans respect particulier des besoins de calme des occupants. Quand on a 8 heures de décalage horaire et que l'on souhaite se reposer, c'est carrément impossible. C'est le principal désavantage de ce B&B.

"bring your own cleaning supplies and breakfast"
10/22/14 sarahR6171MQ Airdrie, Canada
On arrival our room was freezing cold, there was a bin full of used sanitary towels in the bathroom, a dirty towel and dust bunnies under the bed. I had to clean out the bathroom but did not tackle the dust bunnies as I had no equipment. The host told us the room would take hours to heat up as it had under floor heating. She handed me a blanket. The room had obviously not been cleaned between guests though the sheets had been changed. There were two skinny pillows on the bed so we had to track her down for those. The breakfast was listed as starting at 8.30am. At 9.05 the dinning area was filled with guests passing round a tub of cheap margarine and toasting old bread. A very small jug of terrible coffee was provided. We couldn't figure out where the cutlery or plates were. As we didn't want to eat off the table cloth, we went to White Spot which was very good. The next day, again after 9, we were presented with broccoli and scrambled eggs. There was also something greasy in a tall plastic tub. There was no fruit except bananas and no yogurt. Guests leave their shoes at the front door which soon led to a mountain of shoes which I nearly broke my neck on. Julia, owner? manager? was very nice but I thought she had never operated a Bed and Breakfast before. For the price the room was spartan, the bathroom looked as though in the middle of renovations as there were holes and plaster on the wall where the towel rail should have been. This B and B was over priced. I have stayed in numerous B and Bs in many countries and this one was by far the worst. I would normally not write a review like this but this was a special weekend and I would hate someone else to have to suffer through as we did.

"Don't expect a good breakfast!"
10/20/14 toofan27 Los Angeles, California
The owner of this bed and breakfast is not familiar with the concept of making breakfast. We got up early and didn't know where the coffee cups were kept. Wet spend sometime at the table waiting for the brekfast to show up! The lady in he kitchen was not familiar with the concept of how to make eggs or bacon. We stayed there only one night. I hope they have improved their services by now!

"Good Location in Kitsilano and Very Clean Comfortable Rooms"
09/19/14 ChooseTheBeach Washington DC area
We stayed here for three weekend nights while visiting daughter who recently started grad program at UBC. This is a very pleasant B&B in the Kitsilano neighborhood, a few blocks from the commercially active Broadway and 4th Avenue streets. Our room (the Rose room) was large, very clean, and very comfortable, with a large private bath and a king bed. Julia, the proprietor , was very friendly and helpful. Here the emphasis is on bed and not on breakfast. The breakfast includes scrambled eggs and bacon, cereals, toast, fruits, coffee and a limited juice selection. The breakfast hour starts a bit late - 8:30. Starting breakfast earlier, and including some fresh baked breakfast pastries would raise my rating. However, I would definitely stay again on my next visit.

"Great place to stay in Vancouver."
09/04/14 chaggers
Stayed here for 2 nights. We had a lovely welcome. Breakfast was nice with basic food in a fridge for whenever you are hungry, day or night. Free parking on the street and really easy to walk to McDonald Street to get the number 2 or 22 bus straight into Vancouver centre. Took 10 minutes on the bus, so easy. Loved the stay. A well looked after B & B with wonderful hosts. Thankyou.

"Disastrous"
07/16/14 Michael P Seattle, Washington
We thought Camilla House might be a good alternative to a downtown hotel for a wedding in West Vancouver. For the price we expected a comfortable, spacious room and a palatable breakfast. We would have been far better off in a second-tier business hotel. To be fair the weather was unseasonably hot for mid-July in but our cramped second floor room proved hotter than a sauna equipped as it was with windows that barely opened and an underpowered ceiling fan that simply recirculated that hot air back at us. It was inexcusable that additional fans or air conditioning had not be provided. The difficult night was made worse by rock-hard pillows. We were at the breakfast table early hoping for a breakfast to make up for the night's travail only to find a paucity of menu items, greasy undercooked bacon and poor quality sausage. The coffee and the conversation were the only positives. Recommend you avoid at the height of summer unless one books the basement rooms. Far too expensive for the quality rendered. Warning: shoes must come off at the door.

"Very good but overpriced "
07/06/14 VM95
Only issue I had was when we arrived they had not put us in the right room, so me and my cousin had to share a double bed which wasn't ideal. Julia was very nice however & it's in a quiet location not too far from Downtown Vancouver. Would stay again but not for as long as we did (2 weeks) as I'm sure that we could of found somewhere cheaper at the same standard.

"Nice Little B&B"
06/21/14 Fercoxy UK
This is a nice little b&b, in a quiet residential area, worked out well for us as we stayed 2 nights as part of a road trip (finding somewhere in the city to park can be expensive), parking was available it the street. Julia was very accommodating when we got back late one night and wanted to order take out. The breakfasts were fine, I informed her I was vegetarian which was not a problem. There is a no shoe policy inside the house which is fair enough, there is space to leave your shoes by the door and slippers to wear instead.

"14 years ago! (NOT May 2014--Had to pick a month)"
05/20/14 Tracy B Terrace, Canada
First of all, let me clarify! We booked with camilla house in 2000, for a 15th anniversary. Im sorry, but I can't remember the lady's name that we dealt with! I've just been reading the reviews and have to say I'm VERY surprised that there are some very bad reviews! When we booked, it turned out that camilla house was booked solid, but the lady said she has another house that she could put us up in! "The house where the cast of X-Files stayed when filming!" Its very obvious to me that its not being managed like it used to be! SADLY! Our experience was FANTASTIC!! We had been given a number to call when we got there, and the lady came and let us in......showed us around.....said she'd be back in the morning to make us breakfast! We had the entire place to ourselves. This place was very well decorated. It had a beautiful spiral staircase up to our room. The lady was apologizing because "the place needed updating"! Could have fooled me!!! It was gorgeous! The next morning she came back and made us the most awesome breakfast....eggs, fresh salmon, bagels, jam, coffee....to die for! Anyways, I am very disappointed to hear the service is not as good as it was back then! They truly knew what customer service was all about! I hope, for the sake of future customers, AND, for the sake of the owners of this company, that they look seriously at what they can do to change the bad reviews back into the reviews I gave it for what it was 15 years ago! That would be time much better spent than working to justify every action that the customer was unhappy about! Where I come from, "the customers always right"!! They are the ones that keep the business afloat! :). Something has to change drastically!

"Not recommended"
03/23/14 Kiggie99 Montreal, Canada
The room was very nice and the bed large and comfortable but I definitely would not stay here again or recommend it. Breakfast was late (9:00), skimpy, and we had to find cutlery, glasses, plates and juice and set the table ourselves. Julia made coffee but would not make tea, asking us to use a water dispenser in the hall which was awkward to use and the water tepid. There were 3 basic cereals and cheap bread, with some packages of marmalade and peanut butter; we were offered eggs and bacon which were adequate (though when I asked her for a boiled egg she left it on the stove while talking on the phone for about 10 minutes). We left the room for the morning, and when we returned in the afternoon the bed had not been made. The ad says specifically that rooms are cleaned daily, so I asked her if our room would be cleaned to which she cheerfully replied "Oh yes, we clean the rooms after you leave." The next occupant may be relieved to hear this. When pressed she did in fact make our bed and empty the garbage. I don't think this is actually the worst B & B I've ever stayed at, but certainly it is one of the worst, and overpriced for what it offers.

"An excellent stopover"

Very hospitable, comfortable and reasonably priced in the Kitsalano area of Vancouver. The owner greeted us with enthusiasm and was always trying to help. We arrived with some ski gear which did not deter her in any way.
