I return to this B and B regularly as I am required to travel to the lower mainland for my work several times / year. Johanna always makes me feel like a special guest because everything she does is professional and first class. In addition to the great breakfasts, comfortable rooms and convenient location, I also appreciate the auto reminder I recieve a few days before I check in as well as the "thank you" I get soon after I leave. It's a first class B and B. I would recommend it to anyone.
We are so glad that you enjoy staying here. Thanks so much for your continued business and for this lovely review. See you again soon.

I stayed 7 nights in Lavender B&B and felt very much at home, to the point of missing the place when I left. Johanna and Derek are very nice and helpful, and gave me all the information and help that I needed. Breakfast was excellent and I enjoyed the company of the dog and the cat. The house is in a nice, quiet area and is in a convenient location. You can travel anywhere by public transport.

My husband Chris and I wanted one night to stop and relax on our way back from a visit with family in Vancouver. He found Lavender House on the internet and we are very happy to have stayed there. Johanna was an excellent hostess and hers and Derek's home was warm and inviting. Our room had a very comfortable king size bed and our breakfast was delicious! We had a living room area that was inviting to sit in and read. We felt much at home and very welcomed. Johanna suggested a restaurant called "Aldos", an Italian family run restaurant and the food was fabulous! The atmosphere was relaxed and our server Francesco made us feel at home. So with such a great stay, we're going back! Our room was $94 in the middle of summer. A great deal! Brenda and Chris

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found this lovely B&B. Many in the Vancouver area would only take reservations of more than one night, and we only wanted an overnight on our way to Vancouver Island. Johanna was the perfect hostess, taking care of all needs. We appreciated having access to a kitchen. Our breakfast was delicious and substantial. We highly recommend this B&B.

Thanks to Johanna and Derek, we were able to make the most of our time in Vancouver. New Westminster is a great place to base yourselves, a quieter area with easy access to downtown Vancouver and all the sites. Our hosts local knowledge and recommendations were so useful. The room had everything we wanted and the kitchen/sitting area was a real bonus. Sustaining breakfasts, and little touches that made all the difference.

This bed and breakfast was a pleasant surprise. Clean, comfortable in an excellent central location in New Westminster. The host was welcoming and the breakfast was amazing! I would definitely stay here again.
Thank you so much for your review. They mean a lot to us and are helpful to others considering a stay in New Westminster. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your business.

Lavender House offers great value. Johanna and her husband are wonderful hosts, who made me feel welcome during a three day stay while I was taking a course at the Justice Institute. She is an excellent cook and breakfast was delicious (and different) each morning. I recommend Lavender House without reservation.

I recently stayed in at Lavender House for 2 nights with my family. We got to see all the rooms and they were so clean and very new. I really liked how the rooms were decorated with pictures and small objects. Johanna and Derek are such a sweet and welcoming people. We also enjoyed eating the delicious breakfast every morning. My husband especially liked the ham and cheese omelette.This place is definitely more than B&B and I will absolutely come back here to stay in the future!
