Great B&B in an excellent location

3.6 on March 03, 2015

We stayed at 0 Canada House on a weekend in February. The host and staff were friendly and helpful, as well as appropriately unobtrusive. The breakfasts were excellent. We really liked that part of the kitchen was open 24/7 for guests and was stocked with a variety of teas and snacks, including fresh-baked goodies. It was nice to be able to make myself a cuppa tea and take it up to our room before retiring. The main salon was stocked with maps and other materials we found useful in planning our walking excursions. Our room was comfortable. Though most of the rooms were occupied during the weekend, we didn't hear other guests while we were in our room. Much quieter than we expected. Also, we heard very few street noises. The location is perfect for exploring Vancouver, including Stanley Park. We didn't use our car all weekend. Parking was convenient -- right behind the building. All in all, a very good choice for a Vancouver weekend.

O Canada House Bed & Breakfast was a last minute find for a fun girls weekend. We had a wonderful stay in the cottage and thoroughly enjoyed speaking with everyone who helped to run O Canada house. Thank you for an absolutely lovely stay.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at O Canada House. We loved our room --spacious and clean-- and the front room and dining area are beautiful as well. Breakfast was delicious and staff were kind and went out of their way to make recommendations for restaurants and entertainment. We also enjoyed O Canada House's location -- its only a few blocks from the big buildings/hotels of downtown, but is set within a more residential area with apartments, restaurants, and cafes nearby. Two very cute and friendly dogs are occasionally to be found on the first floor, and we had a blast playing with them!

Wonderful place to stay

The hosts at the O Canada were welcoming, and made our stay wonderful...particularly our 4 legged host Daisy! We loved having a quaint house to stay at while having downtown within walking distance. The food was amazing each morning, and snacks available all day! I would definitely come back to the O Canada house!

Short but wonderful stay

We stayed at O'Canada house for two days in early November. We were welcomed by one of the staff and were allowed to check in a bit early, which was nice after a flight from the east coast. Finding such a well-preserved and charming house within a busy high-rise filled area was a pleasant surprise. We stayed in the North Suite, and were amazed at the spaciousness and appointments of the bathroom. The room was very pleasant and quiet. Our first morning was wonderful - we were one of two couples boarding so we had plenty of time to enjoy Danny's breakfast, have a nice conversation with Susanne, and meet Daisy. Both Susanne and Danny provided us with suggestions for the rest of our stay. For the warmth of the hosts and the charm of the house, you can't go wrong with O' Canada house.

Great B&B could not be better located.

This is a lovely bed and breakfast, just a couple blocks off Robson street. The staff is warm and friendly, and the rooms are lovely. Breakfast was delicious. I would definitely stay here every time I come to vancouver.

Friendly Convenient B&B

Very central location for Vancouver sight seeing. Chef prepared breakfasts outstanding. Good advice on restaurants and other activities.

A step back in time to peace and comfort.

We did not expect to be allowed in to the B&B as we were earlier than the suggested time, but we were able to leave our luggage and sit on the lovely cool porch, while we waited for our room to be prepared.The Penthouse suite was huge,(almost wasted on just two of us) and air con kept it at a good temperature.The beds were enormous; so even for a tall man & average wife, comfortably spacious. Bathroom immaculate, well supplied with toiletries and a good shower. Breakfast was novel to us, varied and generous.All the staff, without exception,were helpful, welcoming and gave the impression that nothing was too much trouble. In particular, Susanne was always on hand with supplies for the unexpected incident.(my glasses broke and I needed to put a screw in them) and she invited us to make ourselves a cup of tea when thirst hit us (we are English, of course!) A memorable stay, which we would happily repeat, given a chance.
