“Hope to go back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We had a wonderful stay, it was our last night in Canada and we wish we went there earlier.
Its nice and quiet, it was great talking to Johanna and Derek, lovely people. We got a great breakfast(and apparently everyone staying there thinks the same). Hope to go back in a few years!

Back again to Lavender House - a most enjoyable experience. Johanna and Derek go out of their way to ensure that you feel at home. Excellent breakfasts. The Serenity and Tranquility rooms allow use of the kitchenette with easy access to the unit through the side door. Room and bathroom were very clean - only down side was the distance to the bathroom. Well situated in New Westminster with easy access to transit. Excellent value. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Serenity or Tranquility rooms on lower level allow use of kitchenette and separate entrance

Johanna made our stay most comfortable and warm. Breakfast is excellent and the experience very positive as she is very outgoing, informative and very congenial. The location for those needing to be on the East side of Vancouver, couldn't be better with all amenities close by

Never before have I felt as much a part of the family as when we stayed at the Lavender House.

Johanna, the B&B hostess, went above and beyond our expectations in every sense. She was friendly and helpful, and so conscious of the needs of her guests. We were greeted with flowers from the garden to celebrate our anniversary, and were welcomed to our home. The breakfasts Johanna prepared every morning were incredible, and the accommodations were spotlessly clean, luxuriously appointed, and completely comfortable. A private bathroom (thoroughly renovated and quite modern) matched to each bedroom ensured our privacy, and the numerous antiques and vintage pieces of furniture set a tone well above our expectations of any B&B.

The location in New Westminster provides easy access to the sights and attractions of Vancouver, but the neighbourhood is definitely higher-class than the more urban areas. The gardens are gorgeous, and the unique trees (like the monkey puzzle across the street or the holly tree a couple of doors away) make the City of New Westminster an attraction in its own right.

We stayed at the Lavender House for a couple of nights on our way to Victoria, sleeping in one of the basement rooms. Perfectly comfortable and luxurious. On our return a week later, we chose one of the upper bedrooms, also nice, and with a bathroom next door. Both were wonderful (although I found the mattress in the upstairs room to be a bit too soft for my taste). There's no TV on the second floor, but personally I didn't miss it. Besides, there's good wi-fi throughout the house.

When we left, we felt very much the we'd made a new friend, and that we'd be welcome back at any time. We would stay at the Lavender House again in a flash. I am sure you will find no better accommodation in the greater Vancouver area.

Johanna and Derek's local knowledge and willingness to help with our plans were invaluable in maximizing our short stay in Vancouver. New Westminster is a great area to stay, quieter and relaxing to return to each day. Everything we wanted to do was easily accessed by the public transport systems. The room was lovely, and the kitchen/sitting area a bonus. Little touches made it a comfortable and honey stay. A cooked breakfast was a sustaining start to the day.

Room Tip: We stayed in Tranquillity. We had a little walk to our bathroom. The bathroom was closer to Serenit...

Thanks so much for both your review and for staying with us. I wish when we renovated the house we had been in a position to add a couple of extra bathrooms to make it easier for our guests but at the time we hadn't planned on opening as a Bed and Breakfast and the costs involved were pretty high too. Thanks too for leaving the bus passes you had left over. They have already been used by another guest who was very grateful for them. I hope you pass this way again.
sincerely,
Lavender House

Lavender is a comfortable and cozy place! Johanna makes us feel at home as if were part of their family. My room was spectacular, clean and comfortable and plus(!) with a private bathroom! Breakfast is the best ever and ever, everyday she improves her cooking skills! it was a pleasant, relaxing and quiet stay, which enabled me to prepare for my Virginia Woolf's Conference. Thank you so much!

Room Tip: Rooms at the basement are best, in my opinion.
