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

Two weeks in a BnB. Great breakfasts. Great location. Friendly staff. Tree lined street, a minute from the sky train and busses but quiet ... Downstairs room. Reach all of Vancouver from the transit system. Internet and wireless. Never a problem. Plenary of markets and restaurants within a few minutes walk. A great city to walk ... When the weather...

We stayed four nights in room 3 at Douglas house. The sink is just inside the room, and toilet and shower in small cubical. I noticed that the room beside us did not have the nice updated furniture and bedding that ours did, so was happy that we lucked out in that regard. Breakfast was nice along with the host.... More
