This was the perfect location to stay in Vancouver. It is on a quiet street, but centrally located. Walking to any type of restaurant I wanted was easy. Walking to Stanley Park was also close. It was easy to walk to downtown also. Breakfasts were really good with a lot of enjoyable discussions. If I ever make it back to... More

Lovely Victorian House kept alive by a charming couple who will also provide great conversations over breakfast. Conveniently located: Davie Street or Robson Street 5 min walk. Enjoyed my stay very much.

We stayed here on our last night in Vancouver, and it has a wonderful, individual feel to it. No austere lines and minimalism here: this is all wonderfully dark polished wood, rugs and densely patterned wallpaper, along with walls lined with books, books books, giving it a seriously Victorian feel. We were staying in the Whistler room, with a massive... More

The B & B is decorated and styled in 1900's fashion. It takes you to another time that is quite captivating, fun and feeling at home. The room we took was the Whistler room, plenty of space, queen size bed, spacious cabinets, enough mirrors, a washstand, shower with toilet. There might be a problem with the bathroom size for big...

Having arrived after a 10 hour flight it was great to receive such a warm welcome. Our hosts were generous with information about their favourite parts of the beautiful city of Vancouver. Our room was a good size with a private bathroom and although we arrived when it was very hot outside 30-35C the room was kept fairly cool by... More

We spent 2 nights in the Whistler Room. The house was built in 1899 and seems like a good example for the era. Location is a primary appeal of this property as it is in a relatively quiet west end neighborhood with easy access to public transportation and the hop-on-hop-off tour trolley or bus. The room has a very small... More

The location is perfect. In the middle of the interesting, West End neighbourhood. Our hosts provide the right balance of information-sharing and privacy. The house is warm and friendly. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Delicious breakfasts served every morning. Wonderful coffee! Great place to return to after exploring the wonders of beautiful Vancouver.

Wonderful. If you are after a treat with a relaxed / laid back atmosphere, but with absolutely spot on comfort, cleanliness and quality food, then you should seriously consider staying here. Delightful. I want to go back, just to be able to sit and talk again with the best B&B hosts ever. AND it's a great location. So many great... More

Ashby House is one of the original West End Victorian houses in a quiet tree-lined back street very close to Central Vancouver - 5 mins from Robson Street and 10 mins from downtown - with free parking just round the corner. The bed was comfortable and our room was OK - we had a private bathroom which was next door,... More

Stayed at Ashby House for 2 nights in May 2012, could have stayed in Vancouver for a week I loved it so much. No TV or radio is fine here, but I missed being able to find out what the weather was going to do that day, in order to dress appropriately. The MacNeill Whistler room was on the first... More
