Lovely old house. Very clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast. Helpful friendly staff. Great central location. We stayed in a room with bath down the hall. This was not a problem, bathroom was always available. They have rooms with their own bath also available. Free WiFi was a bonus.

  • Liked — clean, friendly, good breakfast
  • Disliked — nothing

We stayed at Nelson House twice in August and September 2007. Great location close to Robson, Denman and Davie Streets and a pleasant walk to Downtown. Good breakfasts. Helpful advice. Laidback atmosphere. If, like us, you are older straights, don't worry about the 'gay friendly' tag. It makes for really interesting guests and breakfast conversations. They almost have to throw the guests out the door at 10.30am to get on with the cleaning. Staying here added to the Vancouver experience. Check it out!

This is the second time in three years that I have had the EXTREME pleasure of staying at the Nelson House B&B. This year I brought two additional friends along, to experience the wonderful hospitality. Located in the West End, it is close to Davie Street, the Vancouver International Film Festival, main bus lines and easy walking distance to many great sites of the city. David and his staff run a tight ship - wonderful breakfasts, clean rooms, engaging conversation and wonderful suggestions for sightseeing.

Would I go next week if I could? Without blinking an eye, YES! It should be on the list best places to stay in Vancouver.

We have stayed at the Nelson House five years in a row (soon to be six), and we love this little place. The location is great, in the heart of the West End, and it is a very well run, small guest house. Rooms are immaculately clean and well furnished. The breakfasts are cooked as well as earlier, continental breakfast put out for early risers. David and his staff run a very comfortable, friendly house. We will always be regulars.

The clientele is predominately gay and lesbian, but open-minded straight people are always welcome there. It's an easy-going house.
