We stayed 4 nights at Barclay House while exploring Vancouver, and were really really pleased with our choice. Dennis met us at the door and helped us with our bags, and overall he was just brilliant: always popping in at breakfast to see how we were, and helping with suggestions of what to do and where to go. Most impressive of all, he managed to provide me with a wide selection of gluten-free goodies at breakfast, despite me (stupidly) only telling him I was gluten intolerant when we checked in (and not well in advance). The rest of the staff were lovely, so amazingly efficient and always smiling. We stayed in the Peak Room for the first 3 nights, followed by the Haidaway on the last night. Both were beautifully presented, although having previously lived in a basement flat in London for 5 years, I have to admit I preferred the Peak Room! As with all B&Bs the sound insulation is perhaps not the best, so if this could be a problem for you then try book the Peak Room (no-one above you!).
The location is very good: quiet and leafy, yet just moments from Robson Street; Stanley park is also about a 15min walk away. The rooms we stayed in were both equipped with fridges, kettles, hairdryers, toiletries... and even a bathroom scale in the Peak Room!
I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Vancouver, especially when considering the price of decent hotels in the area.
