“Comfort & privacy plus!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Extremely comfortable and well thought out establishment. Dennis and staff are most welcoming and will assist with all enquiries. Breakfast included is the best my wife and I have encountered whilst travelling around Canada. Barclay House is well situated which enables easy walking to shopping etc.. We would definitely stay here again and recommend you do to!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Haidaway room which has a lovely Jacuzzi! This is below the main house thus has its...

We only stayed for one night, but this was one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed at. Dennis, the general manager, is a delight, with a cheerful presence and wonderful spirit. We arrived a little early, and he let us into the room to change and leave our suitcases in the most accommodating way. The room itself was terrific, with a whirlpool bath, refrigerator, good lighting for reading in bed (really important to us) and plenty of room. Nicely decorated as well. The breakfast was super. If you typically stay on a 4+ star hotel, this is a real alternative.

Room Tip: We had a basement room which sounds dreary, but had plenty of natural light, lots of room, and a big...

Dennis and his staff provide great rates, quaint rooms and the best service possible. The Barclay House is the perfect hideaway right in the heart of Vancouver.

Te rooms are always spotless and te food is always delicious!

this was our first time in Vancouver. We decided to stay at the Barclay house and it was truly an awesome stay. Dennis was the perfect host. the breakfast both mornings was absolutely delicious. we had fresh cookies in our room at night which made it a perfect treat at the end of the day after sightseeing. Room was clean and very spacious and comfortable. Felt like home. Location was perfect - walking distance to everything. Close to the dock for our cruise. Dennis went out of his way to help us out. Very quiet and relaxing. Would stay there in a heartbeat if traveling to Vancouver again.

We stayed 2 nights, the breakfast was 3 courses - little portions. The house is romantic, the room smal - we had king size bed - with a second room with tv etc. It is in a neighbour-street mostly quiet.

For our last night in Vancouver before going back to France, we chose this charming yellow house near Stanley Park. Our garden suite was very nicely decorated and very quiet. The bed was very confortable, we arrived on a sunday evening and everything was perfectly organized, even cookies on a plate on the bed!!
The parking space in the back of the house very useful!!
Breakfast was a moment of joy with our host Dennis who was so friendly and helpful. Beautiful dining room too!
Next time we go to Vancouver, it will definitely be the FIRST place where we'll stay!!.

We found Barclay House through friends in San Francisco in 2009. It was such a romantic spot that we got married, then and there, in the living room and have returned each year since to celebrate. The Garden Room is cool and quiet despite being on the street level. It has a room separate from the bedroom that will accommodate six easily for cocktails. We stayed there one night because Haidaway, our favorite, was not available until our second day. Haidaway, also on the ground level is steps away from a secluded garden patio where we sipped wine at the end of
the day. Dennis has been the host for all of our visits. This year a delightful team of Japanese women joined him to serve the scrumptious breakfast and, without being seen, refresh the room magically. As usual Dennis greeted us near the end of breakfast to help us plan our day walking in various parts of this wonderful city. He always found something new and different whether it was sightseeing, shopping or dining. Barclay House is a must for us when we are in Vancouver!

Room Tip: Trust Dennis to provide great advice on which rooms are available. In our case it meant changing roo...
