“A great choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We loved our second time at this lovely Victorian B & B on a quiet sidestreet right in downtown Vancouver with great breakfast, free parking and within walking distance to so much, (Robson St. shopping, waterfronts, Canada Place, convention centre, Stanley park, etc) and for such a good price! We enjoyed it just as much as the first time and will be back for sure. It's elegant simplicity and it really is a good deal and a lovely stay.

Room Tip: All choices are good, if one is available. If there are vacancies don't be surprised if you are...

We went for a short weekend stay to get away, and it worked wonderfully. Dennis, the manager we dealt with was super-friendly and very attentive. We've seen 3 of the suites, and they're all wonderful--neat, spacious, comfortable. But the biggest plus is the location--no more than a 30 minute walk from anything you'd want to go to downtown, and lots of stuff is much closer than that. The neighbourhood is quiet and neat. If you've never been to Vancouver, this is the place to make your home base!

Totally enjoyed this wonderful B&B. Fabulous location on charming, heritage Barclay Street, close to shopping and restaurants on Robson Street. Within walking distance of Stanley Park, Englishman's Bay and the Vancouver Conference Centre, Barclay House is ideal for either business or a holiday. Beautiful Victorian house with a great sweeping porch for relaxation. Dennis, the ever-helpful host, supplies cozy blankets for a night on the porch or ample umbrellas for a walk in the rain. Delicious breakfasts served efficiently so you can chose to get on your way or linger and relax. Comfortable, well-appointed rooms.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, choose a room on the street side.

I didn't stay here long enough. I pretty, modern and quiet room with a comfortable bed and lovely seating area. The location was perfect to walk and drive all over the city. The hosts were lovely. I loved the many windows in every direction and I think I would have really enjoyed the front porch had the weather been a little nicer. I feel the reviews of breakfasts being "wonderful" were a little overstated - we had some watermelon balls, a store bought blueberry muffin, and a store bought bagel with egg, cheese and ham on it. It was fine, but I feel bad for skipping Chinatown dim sum for a breakfast I could have made at home.

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.

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.
