“Can't Beat This”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We stayed in the penthouse at O Canada house on our last trip to Vancouver and can't rate it highly enough. The rooms were spacious and graciously furnished, with divine beds and lovely old world charm throughout. The breakfast was a highlight of the stay. Location was perfect,
within walking distance to everything and our host Dan was knowledgebale, courteous and very friendly. Beats hotels and apartments which are so impersonable. 5 star all the way. Thank you !!

Room Tip: The penthouse was awesome!!

We stay at O Canada House whenever we visit Vancouver. The location is perfect, on a lovely residential street but close to the hustle bustle of Robson Street and the other attractions of downtown. We've slept in almost all of the rooms, and they are all charming. The breakfasts are great and free parking is icing on the cake

The weather wasn't great but sipping sherry by the fireplace warmed us up! This was our third stay at O Canada House and we will be back for a 4th. The beds are comfortable (great pillows), the breakfasts are delicious and the extras including free parking, excellent WiFi reception and a help-yourself all day pantry with lots of goodies make this a very affordable stay in very expensive Vancouver. The location is a quiet street in the middle of all the action in downtown Vancouver, an easy walk to everything. Susanne and all the staff at O Canada House help you to feel like you at your own home. It doesn't get better than this.

Room Tip: I love the clawfoot bathtub in the North Suite

We just had our second stay with Suasanne at O Canada House. Having lived in Vancouver for 5 years in the early 80s I know the city well, but never stayed at hotels there. Having been back a few times over the last few years we have looked around to find just this. A home away from home!
Good beds, excellent breakfast, good company and the right homely feeling in the perfect location.
Book it!

Room Tip: North suite is good

We loved our stay at the O Canada House! The location was ideal with quick walkable access to Robson, Davies, Burrard streets with so much going on yet it was still quiet and peaceful at the house. The breakfasts were creative, tasty, hardy, and pleasantly served by the gracious staff. We stayed in the Cottage ... loved it ... gas fireplace, comfortable bed, high quality linens, private, and super-spotless clean. I have to admit we tend to go with high end hotels but thought we'd mix it up and try a B&B this time ... O Canada House may have converted us for good.

Room Tip: The Cottage is off the alley behind the main house so not connected. Access was a walk to the front...

Such a wonderful B&B in a very convenient spot right downtown Vancouver. Wonderful and very friendly service, superb and innovative breakfasts cooked by Danny. (Good luck to Cheryl who is just leaving to return to the Maritimes). Truly enjoyed the cozy lounge and especially the attention to details. Lovely to go in after a wet walk around the city and be able to help yourself to some hot tea or coffee and the delicious fresh biscuits, cookies or muffins.
Thanks very much once again!!

Room Tip: Any of them! All very pretty.

We had a wonderful stay at O Canada house. Home was decorated for the season, with fireplace going, and a charming room. Very quiet, and in a great location. Walked to a restaurant suggested by the staff, who also made our reservations.... Had a great sleep, and then an amazing breakfast. I would happily go back, it felt like a home, with the warm staff and little touches everywhere.

Room Tip: Ask for the front bedroom, very large and comfy
