“It really is that perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I’ve never written a review before but was moved to put my two cents in after staying four nights at the English Bay Inn in Vancouver at the end of May. It was idyllic. Great room, great breakfasts, great location, and great Greg. We stayed in some fancy hotels after leaving Vancouver, but they had no soul. We missed the interesting conversations with other guests over breakfast with über-host Greg orchestrating. It was the high point of our vacation.

I only was able to stay a brief time and needed a place to decompress from a cruise (sometimes too many people just tire me out). Greg, the most gracious host, provided the perfect setting, food and conversation. I left feeling great! Definitely plan to go back. Breakfast and Greg...what a fantastic combination.

My husband stayed at the Inn before and wanted me to experience the wonderful elegant way of the English Bay. First and foremost, Greg was superb! His style, manners and insight created an atmosphere of warmth and comfort. He opened 'his' home to my husband and myself. His hard work and dedication shows throughout in the Inn from the delicious food, decor and guest interaction. A very memorable stay. The location is also perfect to access restaurants, Stanley Park, and a variety of shops in Vancouver. If I every have the opportunity to visit Vancouver again, the English Bay Inn will have my reservation. Thank you------Cathy and Mike Merna, Columbus, Ohio.

We spent 3 nights here before an Alaskan cruise & it was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. The location was superb- just a few blocks from the beach, Stanley Park & Denman Street (full of every type of restaurant imaginable). Greg, our host, was wonderful, with great suggestions of where to eat & what to do. His little touches (fresh flowers on the table, bowls of chocolates, decanters of port & sherry laid out for guests at night. fireplace & candles lit for breakfast) just enhanced the experience. Breakfast was an elegant 3 course affair with such treats as homemade scones, fresh fruit, & eggs benedict with sockeye salmon! The breakfasts were so delicious & ample, that we often didn't need lunch. The whole place was tastefully decorated very clean. Greg made us feel completely at home. I can't wait to go back.

I am writing this review after a 4-night stay at beautiful English Bay Inn. I won't elaborate on the beautiful decor as the pictures speak for themselves, but I will elaborate on what a wonderful host Greg was! I was in Vancouver to visit a dear friend and although she wasn't staying at the inn, Greg invited her each morning to share breakfast with us at no additional cost. Each morning Greg prepared delicious 3-course meals all the while managing to entertain us with funny stories, restaurant recommendations, and more. One morning I raved over a specialty spice he used on the main entree, my last-day surprise, Greg had purchased the hard to find spice and gifted it to me before I left. I couldn't be happier with the management of English Bay Inn! You are sure to feel the same.
As a frequent traveler, my number one question is, "Is it clean?" I can attest that English Bay Inn is SPOTLESSLY clean. Without hesitation I wholeheartedly recommend English Bay Inn.

The host, Greg is wonderful, just the right mix of helpful without being in your face. The location is amazing if you love Stanley Park, beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants, shopping etc. Quiet and very safe neighborhood. Rooms are pleasant and updated recently. We had a peaceful two days that felt like a week, thank goodness!

Room Tip: Getaway suite is perfect if one of you wants to watch TV or read and the other wants to sleep.
