“Enjoyable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2005

I was aware of the Barclay House for years, but had no reason to stay there. When the opportunity arose, we took it. We stayed in the Penthouse, which was quiet and well-appointed. Breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed talking with Patrik and Rob. The wireless internet wasn't working, but we were there to rest, so, in the end, it wasn't a big deal. The location was ideal for our visit, being in a quiet neighborhood, but close to Davie Street. Having parking was a definite selling point for us.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2005

We were disappointed. Our room was intensely hot during our stay and also we were bothered by paint fumes as they were painting the basement to turn it into a new room. The owner was barely there. The girl who was in charge tried to bill us twice for the room. Service seemed shakey generally.
On the plus side: the rooms are huge; it's incredibly convenient to Robson, Denman and Davie streets; the food is very good.
But it really isn't the best in town or even close.
