This was our second stay at Barclay House and it was every bit as good as three years ago. The location is central with access to attractions within walking distance or transportation to outlying attractions close by. The Manager, Denis, ensures that you have everything you need and goes out of his way to assist. The house is gorgeous and... More

Barclay House is absolutely super. Dennis and his staff went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay in Vancouver. The room and the breakfast were first class and our stay here was all too short and we do hope we are able to visit again. It will certainly be top of our list. Thank you from Carole... More

My husband and I ended our two week honeymoon here. The B&B itself is beautiful. We had the "Peak" room and the entire upstairs to ourselves. The bed was very comfortable and the room nicely decorated. The breakfasts were just okay. They weren't anything special and didn't seem particularly fresh. The B&B is an easy walk to Stanley Park, downtown,... More

My experience with the Barcley House B&B was neither very bad nor very good - just average (like my rating). But my stay left me with mixed feelings, I believe mainly because the B&B has such a high rating on trip advisor and I do not see why... To give a feeling: What I found very positive: The owner contacted... More

Dennis is a wonderful host with helpful advice for visitors to Vancouver. We enjoyed the very quiet, central location, where you can walk to the city and waterfront.We stayed in the Beach room which was very clean, with a leafy outlook and well appointed.Please look at the website for the range of rooms as they are all different. The vintage... More

We stayed for three nights in this Edwardian house B&B in Vancouver. It is on Barclay St, a leafy road in the West End of Downtown where old houses mix with newer low rise residential blocks. Downtown proper and Stanley Park are within a ten minute walk. The frequent C23 bus along Davie St is probably best for getting further... More

We stay at Barclay house every time we visit Vancouver and we never miss our national day on July 1st. It's a five year annual ritual and this year is no exception. We continue to choose Barclay House because of its charm, comfort, price and location which is so central that we don't have to drive anywhere. We can walk... More

We loved our three night stay here at the end of a three week road trip. In a quiet residential road but within easy walking distance of Stanley Park and the delights of central Vancouver. Charming, hard-working staff, lovely breakfasts, peaceful, well-furnished room (The Beach), delightfully designed house and we took the opportunity to sit on the verandah and chill.... More

The Barclay is everything a B and B should be - gracious Victorian home, nicely appointed and well maintained with a welcoming host and staff. The location couldn't be better, two blocks off the main drag of one of the best walking/trendy areas of Vancouver. You can walk to the park and back and hope to burn enough calories to... More

When the U.S. comes to play soccer it's hard to find a reasonable hotel room. So this was perfect! Centrally located near Robson St. Walk to Stanley Park. Walk to stadium. Lots of restaurants and shopping. Home is lovely. Really nice yard to sit and read and relax - except at night when the skunk pays you a visit! Be... More
