Ashyby house is conveniently located in the West End. It also has parking,--absolutely necessary if you're driving. The hosts are charming and knowledgeble and breakfast is delightful. It's a great value for the West End.

I've stayed at Ashby House several times now over the last 5 years and keep coming back. For me, too, this is a home away from home. I can't imagine staying anywhere else, if I have the choice, for a number of reasons: First of all Mary Anne and Robin are wonderful hosts with lots of stories to share, and...

This was the first time I've stayed in a B&B. The experience was wonderful. The hosts made everyone feel right at home and there was no set time for breakfast.... a B&B that isn't stuffy nor up tight. The decor was tastefully done in the style and age of the house (1899, victorian). The location was awesome, centerally located in...

Ashby House is one of life’s shining gifts. The host team of MaryAnne and Robin are warm, intelligent, vastly experienced at B&B-ing, and intriguing, centered people to be with. The Victorian-Edwardian house seems to put its arms around visitors. King Cat Sampson is serene and invisible if you’re not a catperson, or available for lots of cuddling if that’s your...

When we first arrived at Ashby House we were greeted by the welcoming hosts, Mary Anne and Robin, as well as their wonderful cat Sampson. The house is located right downtown, just minutes away from great shopping (Robson street) and relaxed walks on the beach. I have to say, my favorite part of our stay was the breakfast. Every morning...

We'd stayed at several B&B's in the past, and have always enjoyed them for their comfortable accommodations, hearty breakfasts, and host insights into the area. Not here! When we first arrived the owner told us their friend decided to visit during our stay and they decided to give her the room we had reserved MONTHS in advance - which was...

Step back in time. Yes away from the shiny skyscrappers of "new" Vancouver remains a little oasis. An olde worlde home & way of life. Ashby house, over 100 years old& the timbers holding up well. An unusual restful place in a busy city. Met some fab interesting people during my weeks stay here in June 2006. Nothing was too...

Finally, a bed and breakfast that isn't uptight! It is fabulous to have found Ashby House and I am always telling people about it. You can eat breakfast whenever you want, you can come and go as you please and the conversation is excellent. I highly recommend Ashby House. You will enjoy it immensely.

I travel for a living, I've been across this country numerous times. Dealing with smelly places, communication barriers, and bad service is common place and those are just the cabs. If I never smell a bleached towel again, have a maid walk into the room when the "Do Not Disturb" sign is hanging or wonder why my non smoking room...

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.”
