Barclay house is the grand old lady of Vancouver B&B's right in the centre of the city, charming, comfortable, convenient and affordable. During the pandemic the breakfasts have been cancelled, sadly, since they were great, but there are very good breakfast places a short walk away and the rates have been reduced to reflect this new reality. Parking is free with the room though, which is a rare gift in an expensive city. Usually a destination for Cruise ship travelers and others from all around the world, the Barclay House has become a favorite for staycationers from within Canada, until a vaccine is available. We ourselves live miles outside the city and use Barclay House as almost a second home whenever we need to get our urban fix. It's the perfect solution. Close to everything downtown, steps away from exciting Robson Street and minutes by car to all the must see spots such as Granville Island, English Bay and Stanley Park. It's a lovely spot. We think you'll really enjoy it

The Pandemic is hurting a lot of hospitality businesses. That fact actually helps travelers who otherwise might not find room in this popular B&B which is usually sold out at this time of year. So if you haven't stayed at Barclay House before this is a great opportunity to enjoy a night or so right in the centre of Vancouver. It's only a very short walk to the prime shopping street in the city, Robson, and not a lot further to the waterfront at Coal Harbour, The Convention Centre and famous 5 sails at Canada Place and even the start of the iconic Stanley Park, although, depending on your physical condition you might want to rent a bike or drive to see the whole Park. plus there are many wonderful walks, drives and restaurant filed streets all around. Denman St., Davie Street, Granville Island, Kitsilano, not to mention all the wonderful beaches and Mountain views surrounding this spectacular city. Only a little further afield is Whistler and the amazing drive up the the breathtaking Sea to Sky Highway. And all this from the comfort of this classic Victorian era house in the heart of the city. Because of the Pandemic during our stay they did not serve their usual delicious breakfast but reduced the rate to make up for it. Phone ahead and ask for Denis Kusin to see what the situation is if you decide to book but, we just love staying there and highly recommend it. And, believe it or not, the parking is free, a great savings.

We stayed at this lovely B & B on our way home from Mexico. Had a very late check in and Dennis had our key and information waiting for us. This is a beautiful heritage home and the rooms are just lovely. Breakfast was delicious! We will definitely be back for a few days next time to take advantage of the perfect location and walk ability so many Vancouver sights. Thank you Dennis!

We stayed at the Barclays house for two day’s and were impressed by the visit. The staff were delightful and attentive. The room was clean and amenities were excellent. The Barclay house is a short walk to restaurants and shops and the public busses are easy to navigate. We were able to roam the city with no problems and return to a warm bed. The morning breakfasts are delicious and a welcome start to the day. Thank you Barclay house. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It was a weekend getaway with our closest friends for our wedding anniversary. It was definitely a HOME AWAY FROM HOME accommodations at The Barclay House B&B. Very homey, clean and comfortable. Walking distance to the Downtown area of Vancouver. Breakfast was made with love by Barclay's manager and chef, Dennis. He's very friendly and approachable and always ready to answer questions and give good recommendations where to go or where to eat. He recommended DON FRANCESCO RISTORANTE at Cordova St. Vancouver and he did not fail us. We will definitely come back again and yes, I highly recommend this place 101%! ❤❤❤
