Loved the Barclay House

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed May 6, 2024
Great place to stay in Vancouver. Very welcoming environment, a great location, and the breakfast is perfect. The host was amazing and it made our trip very enjoyable. Will be back the next time I am in the city! Very easy to book online, loved the stay.

Such a beautiful place to stay. My fourth time here and it never disappoints. Dennis is a wonderful and friendly host. Great rooms and close to downtown but still nestled in a beautiful neighbourhood. Great breakfasts and wonderful coffee.

We have stayed in dozens of accommodations in Vancouver over the decades and Barclay House B & B has been the best overall for our needs. What have we appreciated?
1. Location - central yet quiet
2. Affordability - great value in the shoulder season
3. Lovely Breakfast - a fantastic bonus!
4. Comfortable bed
5. Conscientious host
If you are looking to experience a taste of Vancouver life, Barclay House is perfect. Walk or jog the enchanting streets of the west end under the beautiful tree canopy. Visit Stanley Park by bike or on foot. Explore the robust international food scene of Robson, Denman, and Davie Streets. Access SkyTrain or other public transit to explore further afield.

Room tip: Parking available by arrangement with operator, though you won't need to drive once here

We stayed in Barclayhouse B&B for four nights and it was awesome.
The room was clean and spacious, the breakfast delicious and Dennis and his staff super nice. Also it’s really close to the city center. 10/10 we will definitely come back!!!!

This is a nice old vintage house (1904). Unfortunately the exterior of the building, the front and back yard are neglected and deteriorating. The house next door is identical, but it has been updated and renovated. If this were done with the Barklay House it would extend its lifespan and provide quiet, tasteful accommodation for guests, only a couple of blocks from shopping and entertainment on Robson Street. It is not hard to imagine what would happen to the house if nothing were done to improve and update it.
Our room consisted of two rooms and a bathroom. One room with a bed and one room with a day bed, a chair and a TV. Watching TV with two people was awkward.
There was a coffee maker in that same room. Nice to have stemmed glasses for our wine. Something we rarely encounter in other places of accommodation. Our room was too hot even with the windows opened a crack. There was no way to control the flow of hot air coming out of the register.
The dining/living area is cozy. It is filled with an eclectic assortment of furniture, both contemporary and traditional. A computer and printer are located on one side, below an attractive stained glass window. The carpet in the room is due for a replacement.
Our breakfast was OK. My wife got the gluten free toast she requested. I was served a 'bagel sandwich' filled with tomato, boiled ham, fried egg and processed orange cheese. Not the greatest. The diced melon served in an oversized martini glass was refreshing. The coffee in a thermos type pitcher was good. No juice, milk, tea or water were offered.
The woman meeting us, showing us to our room and serving us, was pleasant in a polite and quiet way.
In all, the place has elegance and a mix of quaint and funky.
Would we stay here again? Maybe. Especially since it is in a quiet neighbourhood close to commercial streets. Also, judging from two solo women guests, it is probably a safe location for single females to stay at. A real plus in a large city.
We did wonder if the Barklay House is designated as a heritage building. If it is, there might be some city funding for some of the required upgrades.
For what it is worth.

Room tip: It was hard to give the Barklay House a higher rating than 3/5 because of its condition The place has great potential.

Had a great stay at Barclay Bed and Breakfast! Dennis was a great host! The Christmas decorations most especially the Filipino lantern was awesome. Feeling nostalgic! We enjoyed, had fun and the best breakfast. We love how breakfast is served first class.

Room tip: Walking distance to high-end shops and boutiques and restaurants! Also you can stroll in the Kitsilano Beach. The area is well lighted.
