Stayed at the Barclay B&B for three nights and loved it! The location is great but it does require walking a few blocks before you can get to the Stanley Park. From the city center stations, it was about a 30-35 min walk with luggage – I highly recommend NOT walking if you’re lugging around luggage. It’s up and down in some areas and honestly, bus or cab it. You’ll be happy you did.
The house is super cute; it’s clean and the service is wonderful. Each day our rooms were neatly made and two fresh cookies were placed on our beds. We stayed in the garden suite which was separate from the main house (basement). It had a living area with a pullout couch — no tables to really eat though which was difficult if you were bringing food back to the room, but not a big deal.
The WiFi was kinda shoddy if you weren’t in the bedroom. The room had a fridge and a safe. It also has a lovely fireplace which is essentially what heat the room when we were cold. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was adorable and had all the amenities we needed – no need to drag your own hair dryer around, this place offers one.
The breakfast every morning was fresh and delicious. We had put in our special request when we booked and our breakfast was perfect each morning. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
If you’re renting a car, let them know, they have 5 parking spots where you can park. Street parking will get you a ticket within minutes, so don’t even risk it.
All in all, if I’m ever in Vancouver again, I will def stay here. Enjoy!
