English bay is in the midst of high rise bldgs in the city very close to Stanley Park. It has car parking, wifi, and serves aperitif. Alberto and crew serve a freshly made hearty and delicious breakfast. Alberto is very helpful in taking care of what you need and provides a daily 1-pager as to what's happening in the city....

We stayed here for three nights and found the whole experience wonderful. The location and staff (Alberto and Jacob) were fantastic. Cycling around Stanley Park was very safe with dedicated cycle lanes. Restaurants were plentiful and we enjoyed the two in the park especially. Would definitely stay again LandG Sydney

We visited the Inn after our cruise. We had stayed near Canada Place prior to the cruise and wanted to try an new area after the cruise. The Inn is situated very close to both the English Bay beach and Stanley Park. It is in the middle of a residential area so it really feels like you are staying with... More

What more could you ask for in a B&B?! The English Bay Inn has it all! The staff is exceptional – friendly, charming, and helpful! The accommodations are beautiful, clean, spacious, and comfortable! Breakfast is a feast for all of the senses. A beautiful garden with a covered terrace and comfortable chairs is tucked away behind the house. Add to... More

We stayed at the English Bay Inn, which describes itself as an "Upscale B&B", for three nights in room 3. We were warned that this is the tiniest room in the building so we have no complaints and, in fact, we managed very well in it. It's about 200 sq. ft. in area, the bathroom is too small to fit...

When booking a reservation here, if you are aware of the hotel services that are not available to you, you will have a fantastic stay and enjoy every minute of the inn. The inn is quaint and is located in a residential area surrounded by apartments. You don't feel at all threatened when walking the neighborhood at night. Road noise... More

What a wonderful stay! We love food and artistic details, so we were riveted by Alberto's amazing breakfasts, as well as the lovely presentation and the overall decor of the inn. Alberto is a very gracious and attentive host--the best!

We stayed at the English Bay Inn for the last two nights of our trip to Vancouver and Whistler and what a treat it was. Alberto is a fantastic host and provides the most delicious breakfasts, beautifully presented and different every day. Self check-in was very easy once we had phoned for directions (the explanatory email had got misplaced). Our... More
