Vancouver is a very expensive place to visit. Graham runs a very nice B&B in a nice neighborhood. Parking is free. The breakfast is great. The rooms are clean and nice.

We just had a wonderful stay at Graham's house. Graham is a very nice person , so british humorous, who prepare unforgettable english breakfast.

This is a central place to discover Vancouver. Very quiet area with nice rooms and lovely hosts. Graham prepars a delicious breakfast which vaires every day. Graham and Lee are very warm-hearted and helpful. We enjoyed sitting with them in their garden in the early afternoon. A great place to stay and we would love to come back.

I usually stay in Hotels when in Vancouver on Business. Decided to try a B and B instead and found the Greystone to be a delightful place to stay. Beautiful area, access to walking trails, good food and the local cycling rental system. Did I mention the breakfast? It was fabulous. Will stay there again for sure!!!!
4.4 on July 17, 2017
Greystone B and B was so much better than any Vancouver hotel I have ever stayed at and I have stayed at most of them!!! Quiet room, great neighborhood and amazing breakfast to start the day. I highly recommend this place.
4.6 on July 12, 2017
Graham has been running with B&B for a long time and knows the hospitality business well. The location is great, in a quite neighborhood but still close enough to walk to many shops and eatery. I love his breakfast the best.
4.6 on May 30, 2017
This is a beautiful B and B with a super cute dog, lovely host and delicious food. We were extremely lucky to book the suite and enjoyed our stay in sunny Vancouver!
5 on May 13, 2017
Could not be bettered. So welcoming, including Watney, and helpful. Graham's breakfasts are amazing. He also went over and above the call of duty regarding our Vancouver Island pick up. Thanks for a great stay, Rob & Liz

Excellent quiet residential location close to West Broadway and transit system. Cosy home environment with beautiful yard and deck (a bit too cool when there to enjoy). The breakfast was a wonderfully fresh variety. Hospitality was a delight. Definitely will be returning on next visit to Vancouver!
5 on April 01, 2017
We had a lovely stay in the Kitsilano room. It was perfect for our needs. Andrew was a excellent host and breakfast was delicious and big! Location is perfect in Kitsilano, able to walk to many amenities.

Very homely retreat in central Vancouver. Felt like I was in a family basement apartment but much tidier and more cosy than my own. Lovely breakfast with a very hospitible host and nice touches such as fresh milk and fruit for us should we need a cup of tea or snack.
4.6 on March 02, 2017
This is a nice neighborhood easy parking, The breakfast is GREAT. The price is reasonable
4.6 on February 15, 2017
Graham is a great cook. The breakfast table is a great place to meat other guests and talk. The neighborhood is very nice. You get a lot more here than you would at a hotel
4.2 on January 08, 2017
We spend 5 nights at this B&B and had a lovely stay. Graham and Lee are very hospitable. Every morning Graham baked something new, beside the variety of fruits, muffins,etc. You can also join them during their happy hour later in the afternoon. I'm sure that one day we'll come back to this beautifull place.
4.2 on October 29, 2016
We were looking for somewhere to stay other than a hotel within walking distance of a family member's apt. This cozy, friendly B&B was the answer. It's in a lovely, quiet residential neighborhood of meticulously maintained older homes not far from several excellent restaurants. Our host provided lavish breakfasts featuring several varieties of fresh fruit, eggs prepared to order, a choice of breakfast meats, and fresh baked goods. We enjoyed lively conversation and tips about Vancouver restaurants and attractions.Our room was comfortable and cozy, with antique furniture and thoughtful amenities. Our host saw to our needs, arranging an early morning cab ride to the airport for us.
5 on October 26, 2016
This B&B has everything you need. Great location, very comfortable, all needs taken care of, clean and organized. Highly recommended!
5 on October 21, 2016
We stayed in the Rose Garden Suite whilst visiting family in Kitsilano in October. Everything was wonderful, from great accommodations, great breakfasts, great neighbourhood, walking distance to shops and coffee stops, and bus stops.. Nothing was lacking. Greystone will be our "go to place" on subsequent trips to Vancouver.
5 on October 14, 2016
My husband and I spent five nights at the Greystone B&B. Graham met us when we got in late on a Saturday evening. We stayed in the Shaughnessy room which was nicely appointed -- plenty of room for our things and a full bath. Breakfast each morning was great -- fresh fruit, yogurt, granola/cereal, and then a hot option as well. Over five days we had everything from eggs Benedict to eggy bread with fruit. The location is close to several bus lines, and a bike rental, so even without a car it's convenient. Graham and Leigh are gracious hosts and were able to give us lots of tips about what to see and how to spend our time. We'd definitely stay with them again.

Nice surroundings in villa quarter (much green), but dark because of basement.
4.2 on September 22, 2016
A charming jewel located in a quiet residential area, yet close to all that downtown Vancouver has to offer. Graham, the host, was most friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants and giving directions for the tourist attraction we were interested in visiting. The breakfast went beyond our expectation and was delicious! It was a very pleasant stay.
4.0 on September 07, 2016
Our stay at Greystone B&B was fantastic. Graham is an attentive host and is extremely helpful. He provided us with lots of tips on how to get around the city, where to go for a nice meal. The breakfasts were all delicious and plentiful (lots of seasonal fruits, delicious muffins and homemade pancakes and wafles). We'll definitely go back the next time we're in Vancouver as the location is ideal with lots of shops and restaurants nearby while being in a quiet location.
5 on September 06, 2016
Graham and Lee are gracious hosts, the location is perfect, the beds are comfy, and the breakfast is delicious.
5 on August 26, 2016
Wonderful hosts, beautiful accommodation, delicious breakfast, and very helpful advice on where to eat and how to get there. A beautifully cared for garden with a delicious glass of wine! Highly recommended.

Everything was outstanding
4.2 on August 10, 2016
We had a lovely three night stay at Greystone. Graham and Lee were perfect hosts and we particularly enjoyed our 'happy hours' in the garden in the early evening with our hosts and other guests. Location was good for local transport into Vancouver and there were many restaurants and bars within walking distance. Breakfast was another highlight - Graham produced some amazing culinary delights and we had to tear ourselves away from some interesting breakfast time conversations in order to see Vancouver!
5 on August 08, 2016
Leider hatten wir nur eine Nacht dort. Graham war ein lieber Gastgeber. Seine Weinverkostung "at 5 pm,, not later" war unterhaltsam und amüsant. Das Zimmer war einwandfrei und lieb eingerichtet. Wir fuhren wirklich mit einem tränenden Auge davon. Liebe Grüße Nicole und Bert

The facility is well kept, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was very tasty. The owner is sociable and helpful. The afternoon wine is enjoyable!
4.8 on July 14, 2016
My husband and I enjoyed everything about Greystone B&B. Our Shaughnessy room was very clean,cozy and tastefully decorated. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had a little private deck. Graham and Lee are exceptional hosts. They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The wine and cheese was lovely and the breakfast was incredible. The B&B is in an excellent location, close to shopping, good restaurants and the beach. Whatny the dog was a lovely added touch. It truly was a 'wonderful experience' and we can't wait to go back.
4.8 on July 01, 2016
Graham is an excellent host. Greystone is in the perfect neighbourhood to walk about and see some of the best of Vancouver. Centrally located and very comfortable.

We really enjoyed our short stay at the Greystone, we wish we could have stayed longer. The whole experience was very pleasant and we enjoyed getting to walk around the neighborhood a bit. Would definitely come back again sometime!
4.8 on April 10, 2016
This was our second stay at Graham's wonderful home, and just as enjoyable as the first. Breakfasts are super delicious, and Graham is more than helpful with to do suggestions. The neighbourhood is lovely, esp. with all the flowering magnolias. Quite accessible. Highly recommended.
4.8 on April 06, 2016
2 nights close to Granville Island where you are not only within walking distance to pathways, food, culture and shopping but are fed delicious food and you get to meet a variety of people in all walks of life.
3.8 on March 16, 2016
We stayed at Greystone on a recent weekend trip and enjoyed it immensely. The location suited us very well, and the proprietors were very accommodating when we showed up late due to border-crossing delays and traffic. The room was very comfortable, and the breakfast so satisfying that we skipped lunch. We also enjoyed chatting with the other guests, and of course petting the dog. We will definitely try to stay there again, and will make more of an effort to find B&Bs on future visits to other cities.

Can't enough about Andrew as he made our stay most enjoyable.
4.8 on January 25, 2016
Greystone B&B lived up to both its reviews and expectation. Graham went out of his way to make us feel welcome as well as providing us with all the help we needed. Gemstone B&B comes highly recommended.
5 on January 15, 2016
This B&B is a hidden jewel. Gracious hosts Graham and Lee make every effort to make one comfortable. Beds are soooo comfortable Rooms are super clean. Chef Graham's breakfasts are sumptuous and filling. (No scrimping on quality or amounts). We definitely will be visiting The Greystone again.
3.6 on November 06, 2015
I only stayed here one night but was impressed. This was the first time ever staying at a B&B for me. Adorable home and ensuite room was comfortable and homey. Super convenient to Kitsilano shopping district and public transport with a short walk. I should have given more stars but the home is just a teeny bit in need of a remodel. The private bathroom was adequate and fine, but a bit old. The host was a nice gentleman who made a very good American style breakfast (maybe Canadian?) but I was not so hungry. The main reason I tried a B&B was I was traveling alone and I'd hoped to meet and chat with other travelers. There were no other guests on this Thursday night and the hosts keep to themselves so I only really talked to their dog (who was a great listener!).
5 on October 15, 2015
This is my 4th time staying at Greysyone B&B and it was an excellent experience as always. It's a short walk to restaurants, bars and shops on Broadway and 4th, the beach, Granville Island and downtown.
5 on August 22, 2015
Great place - especially the breakfast. Thoroughly recommended
4.4 on June 07, 2015
It is always nice staying at the Greystone. Graham and Lee are wonderful hosts, and it is obvious they enjoy what they do. The atmosphere is very casual, so you can really relax and feel at home. Happy hour is a nice touch too! The Greystone is a lovely heritage home on a beautiful tree-lined street in a quiet neighbourhood. Being an old home, the rooms are "cozy", but we have never found the size to be an issue at all. They are clean, comfortable and well equipped. The breakfasts are a real feast, well above and beyond the average B&B. There is a huge selection of goodies on offer, including cereal, granola, fruit, yogurt, toast, warm muffins straight from the oven, juice, tea, coffee etc. On top of all that there is a full cooked breakfast. You won't leave the table hungry. We've stayed many times and have always had a great experience.

We had a very enjoyable stay in the Shaughnessy Room at Greystone. Graham and Lee were warm and welcoming, and Graham was very accommodating regarding some special dietary needs. The room was very comfortable (ummm, softest pillows!), with a lovely private deck. The neighborhood was lovely for an evening stroll, and the other guests were friendly and interesting. I plan to stay here again in the future.
4.4 on May 23, 2015
We didn't have as much time to plan our Vancouver trip as we would have liked, but that wasn't a no matter, because Graham and Lee were outstanding hosts, giving us several suggestions about what to do and see. Five days were packed with more food and activities than we could have expected. The breakfast was ample and delicious, and a great neighborhood within reasonable walking distance to shops. Highly recommended, and would definitely stay with them again.
3.8 on May 20, 2015
Wonderful location, friendly hosts and delicious breakfasts
5 on April 02, 2015
Our family of 4 loved our spacious apartment living for 2 days at the end of March - separate bedrooms for teens and parents, a place to spread out the maps and guide books or read a magazine (all provided), a kettle and tea to warm us on the cool rainy day, and a perfect location to explore the diverse area of Vancouver. We walked (with borrowed umbrellas) about 20 min to Granville Island,10-15 min to Graham's outstanding recommendations for dim sum, sushi and Indian restaurants, and then drove 15 min into downtown and also in the opposite direction into the UBC campus. Couldn't ask for a better location, a more delicious and complete breakfast and a more accommodating and enjoyable host! Greystone is a real gem!
4.8 on March 23, 2015
Stayed at this lovely B&B during a recent stay in Vancouver. Unlike the wet weather, was charming, warm and friendly. The location was perfect for our needs, in a quiet residential area, close to transportation. We had the "basement apt." which provided us with privacy and space. The breakfasts were more than ample and truly delicious. Would highly recommend.

another stay to this wonderfully hosted home away from home .Meeting other guests,to share stories.Then to part with another slice of life.Thank You Greystone

Well managed with a friendly style. We are very impressed.
3.4 on March 09, 2015
This bed and breakfast is very homey and cozy, the owner absolutely delightful and clearly enjoys and takes seriously the operation of the b+b. The house is old and creaky though so if you are a light sleeper, do be prepared to wake up when everyone else wakes up. In my case it was very early. It is all a bit quirky and cute for my personal taste, but it was clean and the bed was comfortable and the owner very helpful. It worked perfectly for my needs.
4.8 on February 04, 2015
This was an excellent B&B and we'll definitely be coming back. We felt really welcome and had gourmet breakfast each day. Loved it!
4.6 on February 03, 2015
Had a great time, in quiet street but in reasonable walking distance of shops, buses and beach. Suite was ideal for 3 adults with ample kitchen equipment. Would definitely consider going back if ever return to Vancouver.
5 on December 10, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay at Greystone B&B. Graham and Lee were friendly and gracious hosts and we loved having Happy Hour with them. The best homemade wine I have ever had. They are very interesting and kind hosts. The room was quaint and cozy and warm and the bed was so very comfortable. I could have stayed there for so much longer. Very good price, and a very convenient location to visit with our daughter attending UBC. We walked everywhere! The breakfast was so delicious and we were so very well taken care of. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. I look forward to it.
4.6 on October 11, 2014
Graham & Lee were really kind. My wife and I deeply thank them for their hospitality. Although the house was old, I could see they have made every effort to make the place clean and lovely. Most of all, We definitely enjoyed every breakfast. The food was beyond our expectations. Next time we get to have a chance to visit Vancouver again, we'll definitely visit here again.
4.6 on September 06, 2014
If you want to stay in Vancouver and want to feel home away from home, this is it! The rooms are clean and have private bathrooms, the breakfast is homemade, fresh and delicious (the owner is a great cook) and since the hosts have lived in Vancouver for so long they can always help to find your way and recommend things. All in all very lovely. It takes about 15Min to get to downtown by bus. Broadway with shops, restaurants and coffee places is close. You won't regret but come back the next time.
5 on September 05, 2014
Warm, friendly and a joy to get to know both Lee & Graham. Breakfast was a delight to look forward to. Happy hour out in the garden was a great way to unwind after a busy day. We look forward to returning again.
5 on August 26, 2014
Very relaxed and beautiful accommodations.
3.6 on August 08, 2014
Tout le monde le dit, on le confirme; on viendrait rien que pour les petits-déjeuners ! Nous avons occupé le "sous-sol" avec nos 4 grands ados (deux chambres et un canapé-lit dans le séjour); deux d'entre eux débordaient un peu du lit ! Mais la cuisine équipée était inattendue et le sens de l'hospitalité "so british" du propriétaire rachetait tout ! A distance "marchable" du bord de mer et de "La" piscine de Kitsilano, ainsi que d'un loueur de vélo... Tout ce qu'il nous fallait !
4.6 on August 07, 2014
A combination of a wonderful host plus equally engaging guests made for a lovely, but brief, one night stay here. Our room had a nice deck off the garden which added to our pleasure. The B& B (a very interesting house in it's own right) sits in a charming neighborhood and is walkable to many restaurants, etc. Most importantly, the breakfast was superb. Should we return to Vancouver, we will hope to stay here again - and for more than one night!
4.8 on July 27, 2014
Great location/rooms, awesome breakfasts, and Graham was a fantastic host !!
4.6 on July 22, 2014
Very welcoming. Lovely room. We really enjoyed Happy Hour in the beautiful back garden!
3.8 on July 15, 2014
We stayed at this lovely property for 4 nights. The rose garden suite is spacious, clean, well-equipped, and comfortable. The highlight was the breakfast; besides fresh fruits, new and delicious dishes were cooked for the guests every morning. The host was very friendly and helpful. We all enjoyed our stay, and will stay there again next time we return to Vancouver.
4.2 on July 03, 2014
We were given a warm welcome by Graham with a glass of wine and useful advice about Vancouver. Our Rose Garden Suite was really a complete basement apartment, including 2 bedrooms, kitchen and lounge, so would have been suitable for self-catering. Breakfasts were the best of our whole 3-week tour.
4.6 on June 21, 2014
The rooms and service were really good, and Graham was a helpful and gracious host. Wine at 5 with th other guests was a particularly lovely touch. By no means cheap, however you pay for what you get and will leave refreshed, and feeling that it was worth every cent.
4.4 on June 20, 2014
Extrem good hospitality by owner with best breakfast in town and afternoon "happy hour" in the garden with a self made wine. Enjoyed the nice talks (especially about soccer...) and good suggestions for sightseeing. Can fully recommend to stay :-) Frank, Daniela & Timo from Germany

Greystone was a quaint and charming bed and breakfast. Our host Graham was so delightful. He has a great sense of humor and goes out of his way to be helpful and accommodating. The food was also incredible. And the Kitsalano area was a great place to stay in Vancouver.

The owners are charming. The neighborhood is delightful. I would definitely stay again on a future trip to Vancouver. Ernest, Houston, Texas, USA

We had a very good time at the Greystone B&B. Graham served a wonderful breakfast every morning for having a perfect start in the day. We really enjoyed talking to Graham while having a glass of wine and getting the best Dinner Tips ever. Thank u for the nice time. Meli, Sonni and Dad
4.2 on February 20, 2014
We stayed in the downstairs suite and everything was satisfactory. Graham was exceptionally flexible and accommodating during the reservation process. We did not eat breakfast so I cannot comment on the dining experience. Would happily stay there again!

Our second stay here and just as enjoyable as the first. Great location in South Granville so no need for a car. Highly recommended.
4.2 on December 17, 2013
We think Greystone is an excellent plave to stay in Vancouver. Very close to everything you want to go to in this lovely city but far enough away to enjoy peace and tranquility. Graham and Lee were excellent hosts. They turned on a marvelous breakfast and were alway very polite and hospitable - and left us alone to our own devices! The room was very comfortable and warm and always terrific to come home to after being out during the day. We really rate it right up there and could not give it a better recommendation for anyone looking for a excellent B&B.
4.4 on December 16, 2013
I recently stayed several days here and cannot recommend it strongly enough.The owners are delightful and make everyone feel at home. Breakfast was like a friendly dinner party. I will certainly return.

My wife and I always enjoy staying at Greystone B&B when visiting her family in Vancouver. This year we wanted to introduce our new grandson to his Canadian family including his Great Grand Mummy, so we arranged to stay in Greystone's Rose Garden suite with our son, daughter in law and 4 month old grandson. There was plenty of room for all of us in two separate bedrooms plus a living room and kitchen. We enjoyed delicious and substantial breakfasts prepared by our wonderful host, Andrew (Graham and Lee were out of town). I heartily recommend a stay at Greystone B&B.
4.6 on October 23, 2013
We had a lovely stay in Greystone B&B - the rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable and Graham was an excellent host. We absolutely loved his breakfasts which set us up nicely for the day. It was a lovely area to stay in, very safe and quiet, walkable to Granville Island (and downtown Vancouver in around 30 mins) and near to lots of local restaurants and amenities. Graham and Lee were both very friendly and able to provide us with information and tips about how to get around and what to see during our stay.
5 on October 18, 2013
Hosts are wonderful people and they contributed significantly to our fond memories of Vancouver. Greystone B and B is conveniently located for evening dining and for accessing the city. Wine and nibbles (Happy Hour) for interested guests is a nice touch and we found ourselves timing our activities to ensure we could join our hosts for an afternoon chat each day.
4.2 on October 08, 2013
The B&B is located in a nice neighborhood, only a few minutes to the nex bus station to downtown vancouver and a short 20 minutes walk to Kitsilano beach. We enjoyed our stay very much. Graham is a gifted cook and very obliging.
4.6 on October 07, 2013
Hosts Graham & Lee Laxton were so welcoming. Their home is warm and friendly, and we thoroughly enjoyed our all too brief stay with them. Happy hour was a totally unexpected plus, with wine and snacks and Graham's stories were wonderful. Breakfast was above and beyond the usual, with everything from a huge variety of fresh fruits, home-baked muffins and sweets, to his awesome eggs Benedict, the best we' ve ever enjoyed. We will tell all our west-coast bound friends. What a find! Thanks Lee and Graham for an unforgettable visit to your beautiful city. Oh, almost forgot, they even let us leave our bags there after check-out so we had a safe place for them until our train departed that evening. Thanks again, Penny and Curt Murley, Long Island, Maine

Wonderful quiet neighborhood with on street parking provided us with a very enjoyable and restful stay in Vancouver. The breakfast was home cooked with lots of fresh fruit and baked goods.

Une excellente adresse sur Vancouver avec un bon rapport qualité/prix : un accueil très sympathique par Graham le charmant propriétaire, un petit-déjeuner très copieux et très bon, une propreté irréprochable. Les chambres sont situées dans un quartier résidentiel très calme, à proximité du centre ville (20 minutes en bus), du musée d'anthorpologie (15 min en voiture) et de l'aéroport (30 min en voiture). Et on peut compter sur les conseils de Graham pour avoir un séjour de qualité. Des Hauts-Savoyards ravis (France)

A great visit to Vancouver only made better by a stay at the Greystone. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about things to see and do in the area, the rooms very comfortable and clean, and we enjoyed a most appetizing breakfast. Will surely plan to stay at the Greystone again whenever we visit Vancouver.
4.4 on August 07, 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Vancouver during the British Columbia provincial holiday weekend in August. We chose the Greystone B&B because of its stellar reviews on TripAdvisor, and it proved to be a great choice! We arrived in Vancouver late Friday evening after a busy workday and several hours' battling northbound traffic from Seattle. It was a treat to find a fruit basket in our room and some gourmet chocolates on the bedside table. The room was a bit small (quite typical in this neighborhood of gracious, established and very well-kept older homes), but spotless and the bed was supremely comfortable. All of the amenities, such as toiletries, hair dryer, wifi, etc. were present. The house itself is lovely with beautiful landscaping, and the parlor and dining room were very tastefully furnished and decorated. Graham, the innkeeper, was happy to accommodate our request for a vegetarian breakfast. It was absolutely delicious! Homemade muffins of different kinds, banana-flavored pancakes from scratch and a delectable selection of fresh fruit& yogurt with plenty of good coffee and juice left us full and satisfied until dinner. English-style tea is served in the afternoons, with wine or a cordial.

Greystone was in a lovely, quiet area of town, but it was easy to walk (or drive) to restaurants or the downtown area. Graham was a very considerate host - breakfasts tasted great; happy hour was happy; and he had wonderful suggestions for things to do and places to go. Without hesitation, we'd recommend this as a great place to stay!

This B&B is in a great location and only a short drive to Granville Island, Stanley Park and downtown Vancouver. The garden is lovely and the home gives you a very cozy feeling. The breakfasts are outstanding and the host is so friendly and accommodating. There is parking on the street so no parking fees.

Home away from home with outstanding options for breakfasts all of which were simply delicious. Located so that we didn't need a car to tour downtown Vancouver. The host went out of his way to spoil guests. A wonderful stay.

Nothing was too much trouble. Afternoon tea and goodies provided on return from day out. Fresh fruit provided each day in our room. A pleasant place to stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Greystone. We got what we were looking for, lots of space to relax in the downstairs suite, and a clean and quiet location near Arbutus. Thanks to our host for a most enjoyable stay.

This is a very helpful, friendly,and well located accommodation. The food is home cooked, scrumptious and delightfully served. We almost wanted to cancel all other plans and hang out at Greystone with Maddie, Graham and Lee. The other guests were fun breakfast companions and we learned something from each. We will return for a third visit to Vancouver and Greystone.

I would stay here again.

My wife and I had stayed in the Shaughnessy Room for 5 nights in September of 2011, and enjoyed it so much we chose to stay at the Greystone B&B again when we returned to Vancouver for the first two weeks of October, 2012. This time, though, we stayed in the Rose Garden Suite because we were going to be in Vancouver for 10 nights. The suite's kitchen, living room and extra bedroom gave us plenty of space to spread out and feel at home. As I said in my previous review, the B&B's location is perfect. There are restaurants, pubs and grocery stores (handy if you're there for an extended stay as we were) a few blocks away on Broadway. On 4th, just a few blocks farther, is great shopping, coffee houses and cool cafes and pubs. You could even walk downtown. As before, Graham and Lee were great hosts and made us feel at home with the 5:00 happy hour. Graham's breakfasts are delicious and got our day off to a great start every morning. Once again, we left Vancouver planning to visit again and hope to stay at the Greystone again. When we're there, it feels like a home away from home.

This was our third stay at Greystone on our yearly visits from CA. We always enjoy the same comfortable room, the wonderful delicious breakfasts prepared by our host, and the interesting conversations with our host and fellow guests. My wife and I highly recommend Greystone B&B.

Our recent stay in the Kistilano room at Greystone B&B was cozy and comfortable. Our host, Graham, was extremely helpful with dinner recommendations and places to go/see, as well as how to get there! The bus stop is very close and makes getting to downtown/Gastown very easy. Breakfast each day was outstanding.
4.8 on October 19, 2012
I recently stayed at the Greystone B&B for the first time and loved it. I usually visit Vancouver on business trips to the University of British Columbia and to stay at a home away from home makes my travels so much more enjoyable. The property is beautiful: from the garden to the charming rooms and common area - everything reflects a lot of thought and love. Graham and his wife are perfect hosts and very intersting people who love to engage with their guests. Amenities are great. Graham's breakfast is to die for. In the afternoon they invite guests to a glass of wine in the living room. The location of the B&B is perfect for anyone who wants to escape the city while still being in a city (and of course for those who need to be closer to UBC!). The Kitsilano neighborhood offers plenty of great restaurants, shops, there is a great beach down the hill (1mi) and transportation to dwontown Vancouver. And if you come by car, parking is no problem at Greystone B&B. I will go back!

We stayed for a weekend with 3 daughters and had a good time. The space and convenient parking would be even more advantageous for a longer stay.
4.0 on October 07, 2012
We typically end up at the Greystone B&B at least once a year when heading to Vancouver. Here's why we keep going back: - Graham and Lee (and their fill-in innkeeper Andrew) are wonderful hosts; cheerful, accommodating, and eager to please. - The location is superb. It's in a quiet heritage district and is only minutes to Granville Island or downtown Vancouver. - For breakfast there is always a huge selection of cereals, muffins, breads fruit yogurt etc, plus there's a mouth-watering full hot breakfast of some kind too. You simply cannot leave the table hungry! - Being a heritage house the rooms are "cozy", but we really don't need anything bigger. They are always clean and comfortable. So if you want a homey, casual, un-pretentious and relaxing place to stay, the Greystone B&B is a good choice.
3.6 on October 02, 2012
I stayed at the Greystone for five nights. The location was perfect, especially for someone without a car, with public transit close by. My hosts were friendly, my room more than adequate, and the breakfasts superb. I would certainly recommend it to anyone travelling to Vancouver.

Very beautifull B&B, and very great welcome. The place of this B&B is very near to Vancouver Downtown (with bus), in a very quiet and green area. Very good welcome from his owner, Graham, and good artistic breakfast. To be recommended, perticular the suite with a kitchen for families. From 4 Frenchs family, who went in Vancouver in august 2012.

Graham at Greystone B&B did everything possible to make our stay welcoming and comfortable and the breakfast far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Greystone B&B!

Lovely character home in a quiet, leafy part of Vancouver, yet handy for Granville and Burrard. Close to Kitsilano. Nice room and en-suite. Fantastic breakfast. Will stay here again.
3.8 on July 30, 2012
Greystone B&B is conveniently located in the middle of Vancouver and close to the Broadway area but not in walking distance of Downtown Vancouver. Ideally you could get around by bike to avoid all those parking fees but with the hilly surroundings and the other traffic this could be challenging. The rooms are nice and tidy and Graham is giving his all for breakfast. We stayed for 4 nights in the Rose Garden Suite and thanks to the information provided by Graham we were able to see all interesting sites of Vancouver. Listen to Graham and if he points out an area that should be avoided do so.
5 on July 21, 2012
The owners of Greystone B&B are very friendly and go out of their way to make their guests feel right at home. The rooms are clean and spacious enough. Some rooms have a nice view of the front street and the trees. It is in a great location, close to all the major streets in Vancouver.
4.8 on June 27, 2012
We stayed with Graham and Lee for a few days in early June. A LOVELY spot, not too far from downtown Vancouver. Graham and Lee are excellent (!!) hosts, and the apartment is large, clean, fully-equipped and private. The breakfast offered with the rate is absolutely excellent ... certainly the best we had during our stay in British Columbia. We highly recommend a stay at Greystone, and should we ever return to Vancouver, we will definitely look to stay there. Thank you, Graham and Lee, for making our stay so enjoyable.

Graham is a delightful and responsive innkeeper. His communication with me was excellent right from the beginning when I would e-mail him with questions right through to the end of our visit. The accommodations were comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious (wonderful homemade muffins and a different hot entree each day). The B&B is in a lovely neighborhood and it's just a short walk to the bus stop that will take you to downtown Vancover is about 20-30 minutes. Graham often did little extras to help accommodate and welcome people in my group. Everyone enjoyed their stay.
5 on April 23, 2012
I was thrilled with the accommodation at Greystone B&B during my last stay in vancouver. The location is convenient and quiet. A quick ride to and from the airport; easy access to downtown. My room was cozy and the bed comfortable. I enjoyed 2 wonderful and filling breakfasts. I felt safe and welcomed from the moment I booked my stay until the moment I left for the airport. I found booking my stay easy using the internet. Graham and Lee were perfect hosts providing answers to all my multiple and seemingly endless questions. They provide an inviting, safe, comfortable and clean B & B. I would recommend Greystone B & B without hesitation.
4.8 on February 29, 2012
Graham greeted us at the door, welcomed us in warmly, invited us to a wine hour, was fantastic to converse with and ask about Vancouver - and this was all in the first 45 minutes. The room was spacious enough for us and cute, very clean, and comfortable. There is no curfew and the locale for us (away form downtown but still close enough to walk if need be) was great. The breakfast in the morning (at your time request) was phenomenal, and I wasn't hungry again until 4 pm...and this was after a 13 mile run and full day of skiing. Can't say enough goof things about our gracious host and his abode - all the other good reviews are simply true.
4.8 on February 17, 2012
Just a quick stay but what a joy. Food alergies make for a challenge for the host but you exceeded every expectation and made us feel at home. Warm inviting and definatly a place to stay and enjoy Vancouver from.

Excellent, comfortable accommodations. Graham Laxton is an outstanding cook and genial host.
4.6 on January 17, 2012
The single room accommodation is excellent for a sole traveler. It was very nice to be welcomed with a glass of wine and some friendly hospitality, as well as numerous practical suggestions. In keeping with other reviews, I found the breakfast to be outstanding and very efficiently served for those on a tight schedule. More food was offered than most could eat and each bite was delicious, particularly the fresh blueberry pancakes with maple syrup and bacon. An added bonus was the free street parking. I would return without hesitation.

We treated ourselves to a one night stay at the Greystone B&B. We were welcomed that early evening with a glass of wine and a great conversation. Graham and Lee were extremely helpful in recommending a restaurant on the nearby beach for a romantic dinner at sunset. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast the next morning was "over the top." Wonderful memories!

My wife and I stayed at the Greystone B&B for 5 nights and loved every moment of it. Graham and Lee are excellent hosts and have probably been the friendliest we've met out of the many bed and breakfasts at which we've stayed. Their beautiful house and gardens were clean and well kept and the surrounding neighborhood was amazing. The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and safe. We walked to local bars and restaurants every night without any worries. Granville Island, downtown and many other great things to see are also within walking distance. We're already planning our return trip.

This B&B is in a great location in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver. Graham and Lee are very welcoming and helpful to all their guests. We have stayed here three times and love it. The rooms are a good size and all have their own private washroom. My husband especially likes the Shaunassy room as it has deck doors outside. Graham always has a large breakfast that includes fruit, cereals, toast, coffee, tea, juice, fabulous home made muffins and always a hot main dish.

Graham and Lee's hospitality is legendary - and deservedly so. From helpful advice on what to do and where to go - to Happy Hour at 5pm (a lovely touch!) We stayed in the Rose Garden Suite which was really suited more to families than to our set up (2 x 80 year olds / 50+ year old). The steps in and out of the unit and the bathroom were a bit tricky for the elderly in our party. However it was very comfortable and cosy. Greystone is situated in Kitsilano, just south of downtown. We found the local transport easy to navigate and the buses ran very regularly. All in all, this B & B is very good value for money and we would most definitely stay there again. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it anyone looking for a quiet, friendly and comfortable home environment. (Maybe not the right place for the nightclubbing set.)
4.8 on April 09, 2011
One couldn't find a cosier B&B. How do you beat happy hour with wonderfully affable hosts, a glass of wine and nibbles beside a crackling fire, and a friendly dog at your feet. Breakfast had an amazing array of goodies: dry cereals, fresh fruit, muffins, juices, yogurt, homemade jams and, if that wasn't enough, a hot entrée. Can't recommend highly enough.

I was in Vancouver on some tough family business and had never stayed in a BB before. Graham and Lee treated me like family. A glass of wine by the fireplace and chatting with these two lovely people truly eased my burden. If I was to travel back to Vancouver I would not stay anywhere else. Nice quiet location and very well kept. Thanks again for everything--Jeff

Graham and Lee are wonderful hosts, and staying at the Greystone feels like coming home. Breakfast is wonderful, and "happy hour" is a very nice treat. The rooms are small (to be expected from a 100 year-old house) but very comfortable, and you really don't need any more as you also have use of the common areas. The rooms are clean in the housekeeping sense, but to be honest, the overall sense is that they are looking rather tired. The rooms could really use new carpet and a lick of paint to bring them back to looking clean and bright. Overall though the Greystone is a very good value for the money and I would not hesitate to go back.

This B&B truly has the feel of being in a friend's home for a visit. It's full of interesting stuff accumulated over a lifetime I would suppose. It's warm and cozy, and the host is an absolute charmer in a quiet, gentle way. He cooks up a darn good breakfast as well with lots of variety. It was a lovely stay.

Four of us visited Greystone in 18/19/20th June 2009 and had a very warm welcome from our English host Graham, and his lovely Canadian wife Lee. Our garden apartment supplied us with everything we required for our stay, including many extras. There were numerous brochures available helping us to explore Vancouver and the apartment lacked for nothing. We were encouraged to sit an oasis they called a garden and watch the visiting birds and just relax. Our hosts were so interesting and helpful and we enjoyed our Happy Hour times with them each day, not only for the wine and nibbles - but for the excellent repartee - explaining some of the local folk lore and traditions. We would love to visit again and thoroughly recommend this to anyone.
