Helpful, go the extra mile. Great breakfast, room, and people. It was the first we stayed in and the best experience in Vancouver for us. Great staff really could not do enough for us. Booked a taxi for us. Ensured we had everything we needed. Just so good when your tired after a long delayed flight. Thank you

Lovely house with excellent accommodations. The breakfast was quality with a variety of both healthy and decadent choices. This is definitely a business rather than family home, but the staff work hard to ensure a comfortable stay. The location is much closer to downtown, so there were street noises. Our biggest disappointment was the entire third floor is one suite, and as in our case, one loud guest or group can ruin a good night sleep. It sounded as if people were holding up then dropping full suitcases on the floor above us. Several times it actually caused our windows to rattle.

Really enjoyed O Canada B&B. Good breakfasts (usually multiple choices) and different each day (we stayed 5 nights). Very friendly staff. We were there early April so small staff of 3, two with whom we frequently interacted. We stayed in The Penthouse which ran the full length of the house and was the only room in the attic. A really really large room nicely isolated from the rest of the B&B. I think the usual target audience would be a family but it worked out great for just the two of us. B&B offers reasonable walking distance to convention center, Canada Place, and downtown. We also walked from B&B to Stanley Park to do that loop. Bitterly cold wind the day we walked so we did not walk much on the outer most path until we were around the western edge and had joined the sea wall section for the walk back. Also because of the cold on a subsequent day’s walk we elected to not walk to a water taxi on False Creek but instead walked down Abbott St. We were going to walk around False Creek but even walking out of the direct wind was too cold. In summer using the water taxis is a lot of fun (go to Grandall Island for example). B&B has I think 6 rooms and 5 parking places but most visitors when we were there had no car so no problem reserving a parking space for our stay. We left the car parked at B&B for first 4 days and decided to take the gorgeous drive up towards Whistler on the 5th. The part that follow the coast has some fantastic views. We had a wrench thrown in the works on that last day (a Monday) when we got a robo call from Canadian health authority asking why one of us did not get the randomly assigned arrival day COVID test 5 days earlier. Good question since we shot thru Canadian Customs in less than 2 minutes with our Nexus card. No one there mentioned a random test requirement. Had about an hour panic figuring out how to meet that requirement but solution was pretty simple. Lifelabs.com will do a test that the government requires and that required us to go to their lab near airport to have it done. I wasted much time trying to do this online. Much better to call their FlyCleqr COVID testing Vancouver number for their location on Russ Baker Way. 1-800-431-7206. There was no charge for the test. So we still got to do our drive toward Whistler and specifically to Squamish for the Sea-to-Sky gondola which on the clear day was a fantastic spot for grand views. Really enjoyed our stay in Vancouver and got one good story out of it. Close to the hotel is Guu a Chinese cuisine cafe. Not l like any Chinese restaurant I had ever been in. I struck up conversation with a guy in his thirties who it turned out was, with his partner, a sculpture design firm called LeadPencilStudio.org. He mentioned one of their pieces got chosen to sit in front of inbound USA travelers when they reached the US customs booths. I asked for a description and he politely ignored the question with a smile and “you’ll see it”. And indeed I did as it filled up the view through my windshield as our papers were checked in Nexus lane. A very cool sculpture.

O Canada House is a delight from the second you arrive. It’s a beautiful old home full of character and antique furniture. The staff made us feel at home. There’s a pantry available 24/7 with coffee, tea and snacks. The breakfast is delicious and the bed was very comfortable. All the small details add up to a perfect stay. We are absolutely delighted that we decided to stay here. We were only here for two nights but wish we could have stayed longer. The location of this wonderful B&B is perfect

We had to come to Vancouver for business so needed to be downtown. We chose O’Canada due to its location and the reviews. The lead up to our trip was not good, highways destroyed by floods meant we had to fly, snow storms delayed our flight by 10 hours so to arrive at this lovely house was a blessing. Such a lovely clean, characterful and comfortable room and en-suite! The king bed was so comfortable, we had a great nights sleep. In the morning we had to race out early for our appointment so thought we likely had missed breakfast but the staff were so accommodating and cooked us up something when we got back. The staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming, the accommodation great and the location ideal for downtown Vancouver.

Super nice service. You feel like home in this traditional Canadian house. Best place to stay with a family (big penthouse suite). Very comfortable bed in a cozy and clean room. Home made breakfast and fire place for cold winter evenings. Good location in the city center.

Fantastic all round! We stayed in the Penthouse which was absolutely beautiful! Very spacious with two extremely comfortable beds and bedding, I struggle to think of anywhere I have stayed with better beds! Room was very well equipped and SO quiet! For the middle of a city I was amazed at the peacefulness of the place. Then there’s breakfast, wow! Just fantastic! You choose the previous night between a sweet or savoury option, and I have to say every morning it was delicious! Crepes, waffles, pancakes - mmmm! There is also a pantry with freshly made cookies and cake, plus a fridge with juices, the cookies are fab! I would highly recommend O Canada House, very homely and comfortable. Spotlessly clean, really friendly staff, very comfortable and peaceful. I would certainly return if I revisited Vancouver. Thank you for a lovely stay!

We enjoyed our one night stay at this quiet charming well maintained B&B with secure parking available. The owners were accessible, pleasant and clearly care about the details. Sherry, muffins and a stocked pantry are a nice touch. Charmingly decorated for Christmas. Be sure to ask for full description of planned breakfast from owners when checking in since waitress' sketchy description did not convey the thoughtful integration of the appetizing breakfast plate.

Beautifully restored 1897 property. Antique furniture throughout with each bedroom being decorated differently. A warm, cosy, relaxing atmosphere has been created within the whole property. Front and back garden areas soothing to sit in. The kitchen area is open at all times for guests to partake of hot and cold drinks along with homemade baked biscuits and cakes. A wonderful served breakfast is provided in a beautifully presented dining room. All of this is inclusive in the price which was extremely reasonable. In a nice part of downtown Vancouver in a leafy street and close to shops. Very highly recommend. · Did not dislike one thing.

The plus sides are: the location is good, walking distance of downtown and West End yet fairly quiet; there's a lounge and you can help yourself to coffee/tea and cookies etc when you want; the clientele all seemed very nice and chatty; the person who checked us in (Michelle) and the breakfast waitress were friendly and helpful. On the down side the decor is tired and furnishings shabby- particularly in our room which had depressing, old, rather ragged dark brown carpet. Some of the fairly random bits of old furniture were broken, eg a chest of drawers which you couldn't use because the drawers didn't open. The only electrical point near a mirror didn't work. The owners are obviously obsessed with sugar- there's sweets everywhere, cookies and cake in the kitchen and the breakfast offer is overwhelmingly sweet and sickly. Despite saying clearly on arrival that we didn't eat sweet stuff for breakfast, the only yoghurt available to eat with fruit was sweetened, one "course" was cake and eggs and half-cooked veg were served atop something described as olive oil and parmesan great but which turned out to be a sweet cake with a sugar topping- just unpleasant with a fried egg on it! After politely and apologetically making it clear once again that we didn't want to eat cake, we were served eggs and toast next day though the toast was still quite sweet. I felt that the cook seemed to take against us for our preference despite us being perfectly polite about it so I was rather uncomfortable. Why not have a healthy option available routinely- there are lots of people who might not say anything but really don't want to eat like this.
