We stayed in the Mateo room, just off the kitchen on the main floor. It was clean and quiet. The staff were super friendly and went out of their way with the motto "Our home is your home." The breakfast was superb with Laura making excellent eggs, pancakes, omelettes. The home is centrally located so we were able to walk...

We stayed here and the construction across the street is noisy dusty and invasive. There are multiple old car and rev wrecks on the property and homeless people wandering the parking area. All and all, inexpensive but very poor value for money.

I usually stay with family in Vancouver, but when the flu struck them, I needed to find a place to stay with only a day's notice. I was there for business and needed a placed located within walking distance of Science World. I booked the room with bath based on the photos of the rooms online, preferring a hotel but...

We decided to do a last minute weekend getaway to Vancouver and booked a room at the Douglas House while driving towards the border. After booking the room I looked at the check-in hours and realized we would not be there in time. So I called the number and was able to arrange to pick up the room key and...

I've stayed at Douglas & its other B&B accommodations. Nice. Just across the Cambie Bridge from downtown. Decent hot breakfast. There is off street parking which is great. One thing that would be nice to see is some better than basic shower heads!!

Once we arrived at the bed and breakfast as they call it, they had my reservation wrong stating that I had a shared bathroom. But they changed it for us with very little problems, the rooms were nice but the bed was hard as a rock, the food its self was very limited on what you could get. But the...

This was our base in Vancouver, on two occasions. We had the basement apartments B on the first stopover and A on the second, both were clean spacious and comfortable, although the kitchens in both were limited in their appliances and cooking implements. The owners are not on site, so this is not a traditional b&b in the English sense,...

The Guest House was in a lovely quiet residential area but with excellent transport and easy walking to the main Vancouver areas. Restaurants and shops just on the corner. It has the added bonus of guest parking, as costs are quote substantial in Vancouver, Beautiful character building and very good value for the money. We had the Penthouse with its...

This was a good place to stay and catch our breath after a long flight from Australia. It was comfortable and quiet with a great breakfast. The other essentials are good pillows and a good shower. It is an easy walk to the train station as well as the river and access to Granville Island.

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
