Good location

The location for this bed and breakfast is great. The breakfast every morning was also very good. Room were clean. But there is no screens on the Windows, the shower in the South Suite is very small, and no unused plugs to charge your phone. I ended up using the plug in the bathroom. Also there is a dog onsite that is not friendly, and I own 2 dogs and have never had problems with dogs in the past.

Great B&B in downtown Vancouver

O Canada House is a beautiful Victorian property in central Vancouver. Susanne and Alexis could not be more welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was delicious and the homemade cakes and cookies, available all day are very difficult to resist. A lovely stay in the "Cottage" we only wish it could have been longer!

We stayed here for a single night in April to see a show in Vancouver. The location is extremely convenient and breakfast was outstanding. You cant beat the value - I wouldn't stay anywhere else for a trip to Vancouver.
