On arriving after 25 hours of travelling, we were, met, introduced to our slippers, and guided to our room All the usual facilities were available and we had a pleasant patio to the rear. The owner proudly collects corkscrews and has amassed a considerable and valuable collection. Breakfast is an event with guests sharing a dining table. An interesting cooked... More

Although the Corkscrew generally requires a 3 night stay (which is understandable) we were able to stay for the one night we tarried in Vancouver on this trip. This is an amazing B&B and a beautiful old house. The owner has done a wonderful job of restoration, complete with fabulous woodwork and stained glass windows. We were warmly greeted by... More

I absolutely loved staying in the Inn. The neighbourhood is safe and the Inn is only 1/2 block to 2 blocks away from major bus routes. I was taking classes on Granville Island and was able to catch one of three various bus options and between busing and walking, was able to be there within 20 minutes or less. My... More

My husband and I were guests at the Corkscrew Inn for several nights recently and we really loved it – in fact I think it may have been one of the very nicest, if not THE nicest B&B we’ve ever stayed at. The experience begins with the physical setting. There is a book on their coffee table that shows in... More

It was barely an in and out stay for us so I cannot actually say much about the place but whatever experience we had there was perfect enough to leave a good impression on me and my wife. Rooms were comfortable neat and affordable and they even served us a good early breakfast before vacating. For what we stayed, it... More

My fiancé and I stayed here in August for about 3 nights, I believe in the Arizona room (downstairs below the kitchen). We really enjoyed the arts and crafts/art nouveau details and interior, the very comfy bed, nice bath, good location, yummy breakfast. Since we stayed downstairs from the main living quarters, we appreciated the fact that guests were wearing... More

Our 5 night stay at The Corkscrew Inn was a delight. The Inn is a visual feast, with stained glass windows throughout, lovely new bathrooms and comfortable rooms. We were totally spoiled by our host, Karen. We visit Vancouver a few times a year, and will never stay anywhere else now that we have found the Inn!

location was perfectly located between UBC and downtown. Karen was a great host and gave us valuable directions to city sites as well as super breakfast. Room was clean and comfortable. Can't think of a think to change.

The Corkscrew Inn is located in a wonderful neighborhood in Kitsilano and is close to the beach and lots to see and do. The house has a lovely garden setting and is beautifully remodeled but was a disappointment beginning the moment my daughter (who lives 8 blocks away), my grandaughter and I stepped across the threshold and were "greeted" by...

We had three nights here a few weeks ago. Karen was super helpful with local knowledge. The style of the place is very tranquil and the breakfasts are great. Our room was spotless. This is also a great area to stay in when visiting Vancouver. We would definitely recommend this place.
