Stayed here during a conference, excellent location for that, and very good accommodation. Not close to a lot of tourist stuff (except UBC based- Museum of Anthropology, Nitobe Gardens, Wreck Beach) so chose a different location if that's what you're after.
One bedroom suite had a lot of room, no tub in bath but very nice shower. Granite counters there and in kitchenette, which give you idea of level of accommodation. Bed and bedding were great. Service at front desk and cleaning staff excellent.
It was unusually hot while I was here, no air conditioning but good blinds and big window/sliding door kept it nice and cool. Only issue was noise- with all the windows open, the sound of late night returnees from events/bars was loud, and in the mornings the sound of suitcase wheels on the exposed aggregate walkways was annoying. However, looking out at the trees in the courtyard made me feel like I was sleeping in the forest, so it balanced.
The food included in the bed and breakfast package was mediocre and boring, but the Gallery Lounge in the same building as the included breakfast has excellent food and all day breakfast for student cheap prices.
