We just spent 4 nights in the British India room and found everything to be perfect. Clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated, quiet for sleepiong and a delicious breakfast every morning. We found Karen to be incredibly helpful, thoughtful, friendly and knowledgeable, truly the perfect innkeeper. For those that don't know Vancouver, Kits is a happening location just across the bridge from... More

This is an exceptionally clean and tastefully appointed inn in the best neighborhood to stay in Vancouver. Service is top flight as well. I inadvertently left behind my Cell charger, and Karen kindly mailed it to me in the States without a thought to charge me for the postage or inconvenience. A genuinely hospitable place, and frankly among the best... More

Probably the best B&B experience my wife and I have enjoyed over the years. The house, lovingly restored by Wayne and Sal is filled with little touches designed with the comfort and delight of their guests in mind. Take time to really look at the fabulous stained glass installed throughout the house and be sure to check out part of... More

My husband and I visited Vancouver for business and pleasure. I appreciated being close enough to be able to walk around the town exploring the unique shops and restaurants while my husband had his meetings. The Inn was a wonderful retreat after walking the afternoon away. Karen was very personable and did an awesome job with the breaksfast...the best I've... More

I stayed for a week while visiting for Vancouver for meetings at UBC during January. The Corkscrew Inn is a local gem, and I would certainly stay again. The Inn is quiet and comfortable, and relaxing during the evenings. It is also beautiful and appointed with all sorts of nice touches through out the Inn that make it an interesting... More

Just enjoyed a 2nd visit at the Corkscrew. The Manager, Karen, does a fabulous job at every juncture: providing a warm welcome, spotless well-appointed rooms, a delicious full hot breakfast, etc. The location is perfect for visits to the downtown area, out to UBC, around Kitsilano and for walks along the water or on the beach. The house was remodeled... More

A beautifully crafted home in a wonderful neighborhood with a lovely host - you cannot go wrong staying at The Corkscrew. My own stay was in the Edwardian room and it was beyond peaceful. I was able to comfortably do work on the desk while sipping tea offered in the main room (and there are cookies!)as well as take a... More

We loved being in a neighborhood, on a residential street, within walking distance of public transportation and also within walking distance to the parks along the water. The Inn is lovely, an artistic success really, with fine craftsmanship and well chosen colors throughout. Our room was comfortable and well appointed, with the added pleasure of a little outdoor balcony. The... More

The house is beautiful, a feast for the eyes. The location is amazing, the house is on a beautiful street, so close to the ocean and equally close to great shops and restaurants. Karen, the host, is super- friendly and helpful. She gave us lots of great tips. We had the Art Deco room, beautifully decorated and very cozy. We... More
