Gorgeous place! I felt I was staying in the lovely home of a dear friend, rather than a paid establishment. Beautiful and tasteful antique furniture and furnishings throughout. As an interior designer, I really appreciated the thoughtful appointments and the wonderful ambience in every room. Thanks to Covid, I was not able to enjoy the lounge and dining areas, except to admire them while passing through but a delicious take-out breakfast was available as the alternative to sit-down service and my room overlooked the little courtyard oasis, which very pleasant. The hosts provided flawless check-in instructions and a binder of helpful information in the room that made for smooth sailing. Their Covid protocols are excellent and the whole house is very clean. Super quiet and walkable location with literally dozens of restaurants within a few minutes to a half hour from the inn. Also great proximity to Stanley Park. An excellent experience all round. Highly recommended.

We loved our stay at this bed and breakfast! So much nicer then staying in a hotel. Perfect location. We were able to walk to the beach & Stanley park, rent bikes, walk to restaurants and parking is provided If you reserve a spot prior to your stay. Check in is easy with no issues and we were able to check in early on your own. Coffee & breakfast in our room was also amazing! Thank you!!

We enjoyed our stay at the English Bay Inn. Room was clean and had all amenities we required. The location makes it super easy to walk to English Bay, Stanley Park and of course a tonne if restaurants. Unfortunately due to COVID, we weren’t able to enjoy breakfast in the dining room, but they offered breakfast in the room which was appreciated. Thanks again! Hope to see you again soon!

This bed and breakfast Inn is like a wonderful time capsule. As you walk up the drive and enter the property you feel like you are taking a step back in time. That’s not to say that modern comforts like WiFi and Netflix are not available, but the lounge and dining room are furnished and styled from a bygone age. Service is superb and the breakfasts are excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfasts are a delight as guests all sit around a large formal dining table and introduce each other and chat about their plans and experiences. A great way to meet fellow guests. BUT.............choose your room carefully, we selected room 3 and it is like a shoebox. We had luggage for our 3 week vacation and there was no room for our suitcases and hand baggage. We spent the 7 days we stayed in the property clambering around and over all our stuff and we were unable to unpack. We lived out of our suitcases. The tiny sink is outside the bathroom and I felt like I was shaving in a dolls house. Also, carefully read your confirmatory emails from the English Bay Inn so that you know how to enter the property if you arrive in the afternoon or evening. We would definitely stay here again, but we would choose a bigger room!

A fantastic oasis in Vancouver - perfectly sighted in an area that has a great vibe. The house is beautifully quirky and so carefully presented we felt at home straight away (a real tonic in these days of anonymous hotels). Breakfast was a communal affair and a great chance to chat with the other guests over good food and lots of coffee. Also the guys could not have been more helpful and attentive (showing real concern when our taxi failed to arrive on time and sorting it out for us).
