“A wonderful stay in Vancouver!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We stayed at O Canada House for 3 nights in June and couldn't have been more pleased! We stayed in the North Suite. Our room was very clean. The clawfoot bathtub was wonderful to soak in after a day of sightseeing. Breakfast was fantastic! Every evening there was a new baked good to snack on. The innkeepers were very helpful in suggesting restaurants, attractions, etc. for us to do. We walked to Chinatown from there and it was a pleasant walk. I highly recommend this B&B. We couldn't ask for more!

Room Tip: The north suite was over the parlor but we were never bothered by noise. Big bathroom and big bedroo...

You couldn't do any better! Everything is perfection. Clean rooms, perfect location, great staff, great breakfast. Everything but a cat in your lap. Try this place first. Also, if you rent a car there is parking.

I could not recommend O Canada House more enthusiastically! I have stayed there twice in the past year and both times it was an immense pleasure. It's close to downtown and within walking distance of the shopping district and train stations. I enjoyed talking to the other guests in the sitting room, or over breakfast, about their interests and travels. The kitchen/pantry is generously stocked with beverages, freshly baked cookies and cheesecake, and snacks. The hosts have been engaging, smart, gracious people who know how to cook a fabulous breakfast! O Canada House treats its guests right. If you are looking for character, warmth, and the feeling of a cherished home away from home, look no further. You will create happy memories here.

Location, location, location! We walked everywhere during our stay. Quiet and pleasant neighborhood, but outstanding dining and shopping were within 4 blocks and the breakfasts at the house were fantastic. The entire staff made us feel at home and they were very helpful with planning our daily adventures. We enjoyed the conversations that we had with them and our fellow guests.

This B&B exceeded our expectations. The room we stayed in was clean and bright with beautiful accents such as the maple leaf etched window in the bathroom and beautiful lamps. The historical charm was palpable and the home preserved beautifully throughout. The staff were truly fantastic. They offered to make whatever we wanted for breakfast and were very friendly and courteous. We certainly felt special. Breakfast was amazing! My favorite was the smoked salmon omelette with cream cheese, asparagus and spinach. I certainly have a sweet tooth and loved the little cup cakes and cookies that were available. The cookies were soft and chewy white chocolate macadamia nut. YUMM! Sitting in the front room sipping sherry and reading about the original owner of the home (Who incidental wrote our first version of O'Canada) was like stepping into another place in time. It was very romantic, so much so that my finance actually picked the front sitting room to propose in. (Instead of the revolving restaurant downtown) I certainly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet romantic getaway but still want easy access to the city. Everything was walking distance so we didn't have to move our vehicle once while we were there. We loved coming back from the hustle and bustle of downtown to step into the serenity of this beautiful home. We can't wait to go back.

We arrived late at night to find we had mixed up the booking dates-entirely our own fault. The manager was just superb, and found a space for us. The house was full of character, in a traditional Vancouver style. All amenities were just fine, and the breakfasts were excellent-my partner had her gluten free needs attended to in every detail. There are a variety of restaurants nearby, and a in the neighbourhood, a gem of a preserved housing estate...all in the old style.

We have just had a holiday in Canada in which we stayed at some delightful and very special B and B's. This was our last stop and we really were very disappointed. The house is quite run down and needs decoration all over. Breakfasts were poor and not as described on the website. The coffee was weak and the juice was definitely out of a carton. They did claim to have snacks available all day. They were home baked cakes but they were of a very poor standard, and on one occasion very undercooked!
To be fair our bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. The sink outlet was blocked and although we were told it would be fixed, it was still blocked when we came back in the evening.
One of the highlights of our 3 week Canadian holiday was the friendliness of our hosts in the different B and B's we stayed at. Sadly this was not the case at O Canada House. There was absolutely no personal touch and it is very much overpriced. The location is central.

We try our sincere best every day to ensure our guests’ comfort and enjoyment. Danny and Steve, both accomplished chefs, produce imaginative and delicious breakfasts every day to the raves of our guests. If you are expecting bacon and eggs with toast it’s not what we normally serve but just ask and we will provide! We pride ourselves on a spotlessly clean home, comfortable surroundings and an outstanding location, all of which are clearly pictured and defined on our website. O Canada House is an award winning restoration with a notable heritage. There is always someone available to answer your questions, give directions or suggestions to all Vancouver has to offer or just for a friendly chat. Every once in a long while, we have a guest that will not be pleased, it is with our unhappy regrets.
