We spent the weekend here and have nothing but great things to say about this inn. The staff was extremely accommodating. Because we had to leave early for the Rock n Roll 10K, they fixed us a special breakfast and Jacob was kind enough to completely remake our bed when I told him I had feather allergies. We loved the... More

We stayed in the 2-floor suite. They have a wonderful system for checking in that is very well outlined in the email welcome letter. The room was beautiful and the hotel is in easy walking distance of several restaurants and the beach. IT was very nice reconnecting with a city we haven't been to in 30 years. So we were... More

Love the location! within walking distance to Stanley Park and lovely streets to walk around. The breakfast is excellent. It is good to sit with other guests and chit chat about each others travel experiences and share views and ideas. The staff is friendly and professional. We had a big room (#5) which had a sitting area downstairs and bedroom... More

We arrived very early and although the room was not ready they happily looked after our bags and set up our access. The rooms were immaculate and included a great folder full of recommended places to visit, restaurants and bars, including maps for each. Recommended highly.

The best bits - the breakfast, at a table that is set as if you're on the set of Downton abbey! The staff at breakfast were friendly and attentive. The location - just a few minutes from Stanley Park and a fifteen minute walk from the ferry to Granville island. The neighbourhood has a nice feel to it and there... More

To explain my title: On one level the English Bay Inn offers the best of a great B&B; it also has its foibles. The best: extraordinary breakfasts, both in quality and quantity; a very attractive dining room; Alberto is a delightful host in the morning (more below); its location a couple of blocks from Stanley Park, and from "downtown" West...

This relatively old property is completely covered into a boutique upmarket B&B style hotel with common sitting and dining rooms. Very well furnished, everything in good order and spotlessly clean. Superb location a few minutes walk from Stanley Park and English Bay itself, downtown is not much further than a 15 min walk. Lots of restaurants on Denman St a... More

Stayed in Room 3 (on my own) and Room 6 (basement suite with my husband and two kids- age 2 and 7). Rooms were lovely, well appointed, comfortable beds.

We booked room 2 for our first 2 nights in Vancouver. Our bedroom was a good size with a very very comfy bed and a good sized ensuite shower room with plenty of room to move around. The B&B is in a great location as it is one block from English Bay beach and the same from Stanley park, so... More

Stayed at the English Bay Inn for 2 nights at the start of our trip to BC. Great location, kind staff, fantastic breakfast fare and clean rooms. The room we had was somewhat small and "cozy" but full marks for everything else.

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.
