This charming B+B I is pretty much in the middle of downtown. The residential areas are away from the shops and most traffic but only a couple of block from the main roads. My bedroom was spacious. The bed was firm, the shower hot and strong. The cat and dog are cute (and stay out of your way).. The hosts... More

This was the perfect location to stay in Vancouver. It is on a quiet street, but centrally located. Walking to any type of restaurant I wanted was easy. Walking to Stanley Park was also close. It was easy to walk to downtown also. Breakfasts were really good with a lot of enjoyable discussions. If I ever make it back to... More

Lovely Victorian House kept alive by a charming couple who will also provide great conversations over breakfast. Conveniently located: Davie Street or Robson Street 5 min walk. Enjoyed my stay very much.

We stayed here on our last night in Vancouver, and it has a wonderful, individual feel to it. No austere lines and minimalism here: this is all wonderfully dark polished wood, rugs and densely patterned wallpaper, along with walls lined with books, books books, giving it a seriously Victorian feel. We were staying in the Whistler room, with a massive... More

The B & B is decorated and styled in 1900's fashion. It takes you to another time that is quite captivating, fun and feeling at home. The room we took was the Whistler room, plenty of space, queen size bed, spacious cabinets, enough mirrors, a washstand, shower with toilet. There might be a problem with the bathroom size for big...

Having arrived after a 10 hour flight it was great to receive such a warm welcome. Our hosts were generous with information about their favourite parts of the beautiful city of Vancouver. Our room was a good size with a private bathroom and although we arrived when it was very hot outside 30-35C the room was kept fairly cool by... More

We spent 2 nights in the Whistler Room. The house was built in 1899 and seems like a good example for the era. Location is a primary appeal of this property as it is in a relatively quiet west end neighborhood with easy access to public transportation and the hop-on-hop-off tour trolley or bus. The room has a very small... More

The location is perfect. In the middle of the interesting, West End neighbourhood. Our hosts provide the right balance of information-sharing and privacy. The house is warm and friendly. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Delicious breakfasts served every morning. Wonderful coffee! Great place to return to after exploring the wonders of beautiful Vancouver.

Wonderful. If you are after a treat with a relaxed / laid back atmosphere, but with absolutely spot on comfort, cleanliness and quality food, then you should seriously consider staying here.

Ashby House is one of the original West End Victorian houses in a quiet tree-lined back street very close to Central Vancouver - 5 mins from Robson Street and 10 mins from downtown - with free parking just round the corner. The bed was comfortable and our room was OK - we had a private bathroom which was next door,... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.

“Room at the front faces the road, so can be a bit more noisy than the room in the back.”
