Had the best time here for 3 nights the day after Christmas. Got an amazing deal where our third night was free. The breakfasts were phenomenal, restaurant style and huge. I'm gluten free and they more than accommodated me. The place itself is adorable and cozy. Fireplaces and gorgeous details and is in the BEST location as a tourist. A... More

This place is a real gem. Doug is a great host and will ensure that you have an easy and comfortable stay. It was my first time staying in a bed and breakfast and it was lovely. There is complimentary port and sherry and the breakfasts are INCREDIBLE. He begins with a seasonal fruit plate, then some kind of breakfast... More

The English Bay Inn was absolutely wonderful! Definitely a superior experience in our books! Doug is an amazing host and a world class chef! The breakfasts were incredible! We enjoyed a very romantic setting with food that was out of this world. Doug even went out of his way to accommodate our dietary needs (we are vegetarians). The eggs Benedict... More

We've been around the world -- and been in many B&B's and Doug has the best French Toast we have Ever had, and let's not get started on the Eggs Benedict! Excellent location within easy walking distance of Stanley Park, and only a little further from Downtown and Granville Island. A delightful escape with beautiful decor, roaring fireplaces, and a...

A charming house with lovely rooms and Doug is an excellent host. The breakfasts are generous and delicious. West End is a great location, close to Stanley Park and Denman/Robson dining, and it's not far to walk into Downtown (public transport is also efficient). Thanks Doug for helping to make our Vancouver vacation so memorable

Located in West Vancouver on a quiet street, among a forest of gleaming multi-home towers, and within walking distance of Stanly Park, sits a classic bed and breakfast inn. The water’s edge is two blocks away. Excellent restaurants are within walking range. Public transportation, two blocks away, is frequent and will get you into the center of the city if... More

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary in September and we can't say enough about it. The home itself is gorgeous! We felt so relaxed and welcomed. Breakfast at the house with Doug was a real treat. He was so helpful in recommending places for us to get dinner and sight seeing too. We will definitely be going... More

We spent 4 days in this gem located in the center of any area you would like to access The rooms are a bit tiny but it is more than made up for in the service provided by Doug, the very ample, varied and tasty breakfasts he serves, and the quietness of the area. There is complimentary sherry and port... More

English Bay Inn's location near Stanley Park is its best attribute. Stanley Park is just a couple of blocks away and there are numerous restaurants in walking distance. Our room and the public areas looked a bit tired and our "garden" view was disappointing. However, Doug was very helpful, suggesting nearby restaurants and giving navigation directions. The breakfasts were quite... More
