Our first stay at the Douglas Guest House was just lovely - super room, quiet, comfortable - bit of a nuisance having to walk down the corridor to the toilet and bathroom but we knew that in advance. Fantastic breakfast in a beautiful indoor-outdoor setting - and very friendly and helpful staff. So on our return a few weeks later,... More

I was stung four times over two nights because of a wasp nest in the attic with access to the nest from our room in the penthouse suite. We had a baby in the room. My wife couldn't sleep because of the wasps and fear of our child getting stung. Management chalked it up to a risk of the area;... More

bachelorbroad, Guest Relations Manager at Douglas Guest House, responded to this review

The management and staff deeply apologize for the very unpleasant experience these guests had, this was a very bad year for wasps in the city, and we were forced to call in the pest control people three times for this house, alone. They removed a large nest every time, and every time we were sure the problem had been eradicated.... More

On holiday. Good location. Good breakfast, friendly staff. Rooms are small, wi-fi internet connection is available but comes and goes. Basically our room "e" garden suite was small, had a musty smell and ants all over the floor and under the area rug. There is a issue. Owners name is Paul and he didn't deal with the issue properly.

There was nothing wrong with the Douglas Guest House but there was no personal touches, either. The lady serving breakfast was really nice and friendly and the owner stopped by once or twice but no interactions. We met other couples at breakfast and shared stories but otherwise it was a room to sleep in.

This place is close to the hospital, which is what I needed and I got a room at short notice. After spending two nights on a cot in my mom's hospital room this place was exactly what I needed! Clean, quiet, cozy. The breakfast was spectacular and super low key and casual. Will be back!!

Already when we arrived, we were surprised to find the house deserted. No one was there to welcome us. There was just an envelope taped to the door with our key and some notes. I am used to a more personal touch, e.g. welcomed by the owner.The room was nice, a large and comfy bed with a lot of cushions.... More

I found Douglas G.H. for some German visitors (staying at my B&B and Guest House in Rossland, BC). They liked it, and now I have spent a week there, while doing business in Vancouver. POSITIVE: It's easy to find (near 12th Ave/Grandview), has off-street parking and it's in an attractive central area near City Hall, VGH, shopping and bus routes.... More

We had such a wonderful trip in Canada but unfortunately our stay at this guest house was a disappointing finale. We had a basement room which was very small. The breakfast was awful- we were offered pancakes, scrambled eggs or omelette and, over the course of the days we stayed, we tried all three- our omelette was so bland we... More

I chose to stay here after reading comments & getting some guidance from a local contact who knows the area. I'd stayed in 4 Hotels and a Hostel in the US in the preceding 18 days. This Guest House was the most pleasant - as well as being very good value for money. For example, I found it more friendly... More
