This bed and breakfast is better than we expected. The breakfast is freshly prepared with a choice of delicious options. It is in a quiet, leafy street but only two blocks walk to the train, shops and restaurants. Staff were efficient and friendly.

We decided to stay in Vancouver on the tail end of the Alaska cruise. When I started looking for a hotel, I was shocked how expensive everything was (last time I was in Vancouver in the 1985), especially as I was trying to find something comfortable for my wife and me and two of our late-teen sons. Douglas House seemed... More

We stayed at the Douglas Guest House for almost a week during our recent visit to Canada. It is situated in an area of lovely homes, and is strategically located for convenient transportation to all areas of the city. The Canada Line (subway) is only two short blocks away, and bus routes are steps away or no more than a... More

We were disappointed with our stay at the Douglas Guest House. The positives are the location ( close to major highways and transportation) and the cleanness of the rooms. However it ends there if you compare it to other Bed and Breakfast that we have had positive experiences. Another review stated that "the owners" were out. The owners do not... More

This is a lovely property nice rooms and clean. Unfortunately owners were away and cleaners were left to deal with guests arriving which I'm sure is not quite the same. But we did enjoy our stay and would recommend. It is a good location near to town hall so easy to get train to downtown and has good choice of... More

We were at a conference in west vancouver. Douglas house was clean and comfy. Nice omlet for breakfast while I sat outside on the back deck. I would most definitely stay there again. It felt like home. Easy to get to our room on check in, lovely staff and comfy beds.

I stayed in the Penthouse Room. Though the house is old, the room was clean and very spacious with two separate bedrooms, small bathroom, balcony, small refrigerator and microwave. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets and bathroom linens clean and new. Being on the top floor meant that I was not bothered by the sounds of other guests.... More

Many thanks for your detailed review of our penthouse suite, it is a lovely suite, but I have passed your remarks on to the owner with regard to putting retractable shades on all of our sky lights. We really appreciate your constructive comments. Sincerely Leslie Lewington More

We originally reserved through bookings.com for Cambie House, their sister property. We called to check on something and were asked if we could stay at Douglas House instead which actually was more convenient for us. Everything here worked out fine. The William Room was a fair size and had a private bath (better than our initial booking). The bed was... More

Thank you for the valuable input you gave about your stay with us, at the Douglas Guest House. We are glad you were so amenable to the change in room, as we service a lot of guests from the hospital in the winter months, and they sometimes have to extend their stay without much notice. The bathroom issues have been... More

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

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
