Barclay House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 53 Vancouver B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 February 2012

We just returned from a long weekend at the Barclay House B&B in Vancouver BC. Superb accommodations with a central location close to Robson Street, Stanley Park, great restaurants and evening jazz...all within walking distance. Dennis was a delightful host, and morning breakfasts of homemade sweets, salmon benedicts and fresh fruit were wonderful. Pure indulgence in the heart of Vancouver BC!

We stayed for two nights at Barclay House B&B recently to attend our friends wedding in downtown. Barclay House was referred to us from a friend who stayed here before. And we would say it was a perfect place to get away once in a while. It's like a home away from home.

The service, the room, the food were PEFECT. everything was AMAZING! I would also recommend the Barclay House B&B to our friends.

Room Tip: Follow the tripadvisor reviews

Barclay House was a wonderful bed and breakfast. We stayed in the Garden Room. It was situated in the basement so I don't recommend it. If the other rooms are available, I would suggest to take those. It was a little musty down there. Dennis was great and very friendly. The location was great and it allowed us to walk everywhere.

Room Tip: Avoid the Garden Room situated in the basement.

When we entered the BarclayHouse in the Westend of Vancouver it felt like a resort destination..
The historical yellow house is beautiful and the rooms are furnished stylishly. We felt very welcome with a botlle of Sekt awaiting us, it maded us feel even more at home. A place to enjoy in a quiet neighberhood nested in the great City of Vancouver. Higher amenities standard than most hotel room with comfortable beds, high count linen and a lovely breakfast. I would like to recommended this place to all even the more demanding traveler

My girlfriend and I stayed at Barclays House in early December 2011. We arrived late in the afternoon to find that our keys were waiting out for us on the porch and our room had been upgraded free of charge. The house itself is possibly the prettiest that we saw during our entire stay in Vancouver and our room (the Beach room) was of a very high quality, with a great bed, bathroom facilities and a little drawing room area too. The hotel's location is unbeatable being as it is so central to downtown. We walked pretty much everywhere in the City during our time there (about 3 days in Vancouver) and it's also an extremely short drive to Stanley Park. The food at Barclay House was also very very good. Everything is fresh and prepared with care and attention to detail. I can't believe anyone could ever have anything but good things to say about this place and its high rating is more than understandable.

I'm a rural sort of person so staying in the heart of downtown Vancouver was a bit of an intimidating experience for me. From the moment we arrived at Barclay House any apprehension I may have been experiencing faded away and we had a terrific five-night stay for Grey Cup weekend.

We arrived in the late afternoon and everything we needed was waiting for us. All of our instructions were clear and detailed and as we were making our way to the Beach Room we met Dennis who immediately proved to be helpful and friendly, as he would be throughout our stay.

The room was immaculate and had a basket of cookies and champaign waiting. They thought of everything we needed to make our stay perfect, even having an iPod dock in the sitting area. Staying with two other couples gave us the advantage of being able to see a couple of the other rooms (Forest and Peak) -- each had its own unique charms. The bed was warm and inviting which was good because our room had a tendency to be a bit on the cool side -- fortunately we had a gas operated fireplace that made taking the chill off quick and easy.

The breakfasts were wonderfully prepared and served by Dennis. There is nothing to make one feel pampered quite like coming downstairs, sitting in the front parlour with the morning newspaper and then having breakfast served to you.

Dennis made a wonderful host -- always willing to answer questions, make suggestions and help out with resetting the power when the breaker tripped (which happened more than once -- too many hairdryers, ladies?). On the day of our departure he caught wind that we had to leave for the airport before the normal breakfast hours and he offered to have something ready for us early -- we were expecting some coffee and maybe a muffin but instead he actually specially prepared the same breakfast our later-rising friends would enjoy. You just can't beat that!

The Barclay House is perfectly situated right in the middle of the west end, meaning most things were easily within walking distance. Our rental car spent most of its time in the parking area at the back -- we simply didn't need it to get around all weekend.

I have no doubts that the next time we visit Vancouver we know exactly where we will be staying.

Barclay House Bed & Breakfast is a gem of a place to stay, they think of everything :-). We didn't want to leave! Our group of 6 stayed 5 nights making it an amazing Grey Cup Weekend! We had the Peak Room with the other couples having the Forest and Beach Rooms. All rooms were eloquently decorated with a cozy, warm ambiance. Barclay House is welcoming, BEAUTIFUL, bright and cheery! It literally twinkles :-) at night. There is not one thing I could ever complain about because it was Great! Great! Great! We loved everything from the fresh baked cookies left in our room daily, snuggly bathrobes, delicious breakfasts, champagne, to the umbrellas & chocolates at the front door. The B & B is conveniently located within walking distance of Shopping, Sky Train, Stanley Park, Movie Theatre, wonderful historical homes, a wide variety of restaurants and a quaint little groceteria that sells the best samosas ever. Dennis, what an amazing host, extremely helpful, charming and handsome, too! :-) We would definetly stay again and can not thank enough for making our stay in Vancouver purfect.
