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... More

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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

This inn is a very enjoyable B&B type establishment (and not to be confused with the very different English Bay Hotel that’s located on Denman Street). This inn’s location on Comox Street is perfect. It’s on a pleasantly quiet street, but only 2 blocks from busy Denman Street with its plethora of restaurants and shops and it’s only a 2-3... More
