“Great location and easy to use”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

I travel a lot and stay in many hotels. I only use the Manor House when I travel to Vancouver because the experience has more of a home-feel that is far more comfortable than typical hotels.
Check-in and out is easier than in a hotel. Value is solid. Location is great, as it is close to everything that I need. Parking is available when I arrive with a car.
It is easy to be a repeat customer and they accommodate my last minute reservations.

I recently visited the Manor Guest House and it is a pleasure to share my observations.

The Manor is a beautiful Edwardian heritage house – a joy to behold. I love the layout of the home, the beautiful woodwork and the charming rooms.

The gardens are fabulous (thanks to Brenda the charismatic owner who does the garden design herself!). Coming or leaving, one cannot help but stop and take in the beauty of the flowers. Or, better yet, sit and relax in a comfy deck chair in the quiet upper garden and enjoy a beautiful day….

The location is excellent - right in the heart of the city, 2 blocks from public transit and walking distance to downtown, in a safe area of heritage houses and lovely greenery.

And that brings me to the staff –– the people responsible for making the guest feel so welcome and at home. From the ladies who serve the sumptuous and delicious breakfasts, to the maids who do a great job of cleaning the rooms, to David, the onsite manager who is professional and dedicated, the staff is excellent. They manage to be present when needed, but not at all intrusive – wonderful traits for guests who value their privacy. I appreciated David, in particular - he was always available to help, provide useful information on the City and places to see and he seemed genuinely concerned that his guests enjoy their stay. And not to forget the owner, Brenda, who is responsible for the quality and welcoming atmosphere of this guesthouse. Kudos to all!

I highly recommend the Manor for your next stay in Vancouver. My visit was a delightful experience.

My husband and I had our first visit to Vancouver and stayed at the Manor Guest House. It was a lovely experience! The manager was very friendly and professional, the accommodations were first class and we enjoyed the breakfast, treatment and the Vancouver experience completely.

Travel frequently and decided to go against the grain and instead of the somewhat impersonal hotel I usually stay at I chose a B&B.

If the Manor Guest House is any indication of what B&B's are like overall, then I am sold on them for life.

It had the comforts of "home" yet also offered me the quiet, personal time I needed to get things done.

The Manor is nestled in this little hamlet of tree lined avenues surrounded by busier streets that offer everything one could think as well as the downtown core being just minutes away.

The Manor staff was friendly, yet not too personal allowing me the anonymity I prefer, or maybe I'm just use to by staying at hotels.

The breakfast was fantastic. Multiple choices that are thoughtfully prepared with health the focus and priority. Being lactose intolerant, the kitchen staff was quick to offer a milk substitute and to inform me of the ingredients in each home-made dish.

Had some good weather while visiting Vancouver and had the opportunity to sit in one of the many gardens the Manor offers with comfortable deck chairs strategically placed to maximize on the sunshine. The gardens are on an upper level from the street offering a quiet, relaxed atmosphere nestled amongst a rainbow of assorted beautiful flowers.

The manager was friendly, informative and funny without being routine. You can tell he loves his job and the rest of the staff greeted you with genuine smiles everyday.

I would not hesitate to return to the Manor, and from now on will choose a B&B over a hotel when traveling. Thanks again!

This is my second trip taking my students and some children to Vancouver and our second stay at Manor Guest House. Honestly, this is a great place to stay and many friends in Taiwan are planning to book with them after our recent trip, which I posted on FB.

I feel this is a really beautiful garden B&B that is family/children friendly. We not only had a great time in Vancouver (3 week stay) because of it's convenient walking distance to Canada Line (subway), but also because of the many friends we made there.

As many people mentioned the breakfasts were amazing. During our 3 week stay, we had five star breakfasts that never disappointed and never repeated. It was also during these breakfasts that we met many of the other people staying there and the friendly staff. I feel people were just so friendly not matter where they came from because of the delicious breakfast and the great surroundings (big, interesting garden).

Besides being convenient, the neighborhood felt really safe to our group. As our main form of transportation is walking, this was very important.

We tried another place during our last trip two years ago, but we couldn't wait to get back to Manor Guest House this year. At the end of the day, it is the place that we called "home". Many of our students even cried when we were leaving.

It is not the newest option available, but it is the place where we felt really welcomed and a sense of family. This is the most important thing I feel I want my family and students to experience in Canada. I wouldn't change this for anything.

My husband and I recently had a wonderful stay at The Manor. We live in Vancouver but had given our home to visiting relatives. So we decided to take a holiday in our own city and chose to stay at a B&B that had been recommended to us.
David, the manager, as well as Brenda, the owner, warmly welcomed us. After unpacking we had time to sit out in the lovely back garden, where we enjoyed some leaf-filtered sunshine and bird song. That night we slept soundly with the windows open (no screens but few bugs anyhow). The mattress was superb. Breakfast made by David was delicious from the juice and coffee through the omelette and muffins. What a great 2 days of 'vacationing at home'.

We stayed at the Manor guest house for 9 nights from Aug 29 to Sep 7. The location of the guest house is quite good, being well connected to bus and train services. Quiet, excellent neighbourhood with access to restaurants and super marts.

Brenda, personally met us on the afternoon we had arrived and David, the Operations Manager, was most helpful and ensured that we had a comfortable stay. He attended to our requests and gave us very useful guidance on places to visit. He even managed a last minute request for us. We didn't really have too much time for sight seeing as we had gone to settle our daughter at UBC. Still, it was very useful.

The staff were very caring and helpful and pleasant. It was nice to see their smiling faces in the morning. The breakfast was good to get you started for the day.

Overall, full marks for attitude and helpfulness.

The main wing is better than the adjoining wing which needs some renovation though - been told that a renovation is in the works. On the other hand, the adjoining wing is quieter, independent and more suitable for long stays.
