“A different sort of hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

Arundel Mansions is a different sort of place. It is quite Victorian, but charming. It is a collection of sizable apartments in an old building in the centre of New Westminster. The apartments are very spacious and comfortable, with bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen. The beds are good, and even though the skytrain is close by, the noise is minimal. The elevator leaves something to be desired, but it works. There are restaurants nearby and the skytrain station is less than 5 minutes away for those who want to get in to central Vancouver. The price is about the same as one would pay for one room (with no kitchen) in a standard hotel. We have stayed there twice, and my wife, who is usually quite picky, is very comfortable there.

This rental property has the potential to be a fantastic place for travelers...but is in need of major remodeling. There is plenty of space in the rooms but you do feel as if you are taking a step back in time with the outdated furniture, lighting and spotty internet. As travelers from outside of Canada, we relied heavily on internet to guide our trip and so it was frustrating to not be able to access the internet from our apartment during our stay at the mansion. When we called management to report the issue, they did not have a solution. Also, our room was directly above the Sky Train which yes, is convenient for traveling but is terrible for a good night sleep.

We travel to Vancouver a couple of times a year. Eversince our friends told us about this place in 2008 - we never went back to a chain hotel. This place has a charm to it, every room is decorated differently. You feel that you are somewhere in England. Well, probably because the owners of this this hotel are from England- Glynn and Myrna - they are amazing hosts. If you ever need an advice on where to go dine, or what to see in the city - ask them, they will recommened only the best. The hotel conviniently located a couple of steps away from the Skytrain- that takes you to Vancouver's center in just 20-25 minutes. There is a boardwalk with a few restaurants/bars by the Fraser river- a good place for an evening walk or a morning jog. My favourite part of the room is the clawfoot bath tub... It is very hard to find baths like that in the hotels nowadays. So, for all of you people out there who like to soak in the bubbly bath with a glass of wine - this is a place to be. They even provide you with a free bottle of red as a thank you gift. I recommened this hotel to everyone I know, and don't know. Your stay at Arundel Mansion will be rememberd forever, and you will want to come back again and again.

We are about to stay at the Arundel Mansion for another week! This will be our 4th year in a row to have the pleasure of staying at this quaint, home-like place! It is conveniently located to Sky Train which one can take to downtown Vancouver, etc. We have flown in and used local transportation in the past but will be driving (from San Francisco Bay Area) this time and plan to park it in the locked parking lot provided by Arundel. One can now take Sky Train to/from the airport or have the owner pick you up at the airport for a fee. The historic building has been updated for the comfort and pleasure of its tenants. It is truly like a home away from home with a small kitchen supplied with dishes and cookware, refrigerator, microwave oven and a stove. There is a dining area with a stocked china cabinet and a living room area with a comfortable sofa and upholstered chairs. The living room has a large bay window from which one can look out onto the Fraser River plus watch people below if the orientation of the unit is such that you have the River view. An old style elevator takes you to the upper floors. The raised old style tubs in the bathroom do have a shower for those who prefer showers. However, the shower curtains tend to close in on you while you shower. We have resolved this by bringing along small magnets to fasten the curtain to the inside of the tub and a small clip/clamp to fasten the ends of the curtain to the water pipe at the faucet end. The bedrooms are large and the beds comfortable. I wear earplugs so the Sky Train noise does not bother me while my husband sleeps well without them. Wireless connectivity is available at no extra charge. We find the rate for the unit to be reasonable. The owners are delightful and very personable with great attention to detail. Greeting us each time is a bottle of wine with 2 wine glasses on the dining room table and a vase with fresh flowers on the coffee-table in the living room area. We are looking forward to our stay for another week at the Arundel Mansion starting Sunday!

Room Tip: Top floors are quieter. Request room with a view of the Fraser River.

We stayed at the Arundel Mansions as a stepping stone to finding permanent accomodation in Vancouver. Our 2 week stay was very enjoyable, economical and really felt like a home away from home. We had everything we needed to cook and relax and thoroughly enjoyed the period furniture and overall charm of the apartment. The skytrain and a great supermarket are both a short walk away. We were prepared for the noise from the Skytrain and did not find it to be excessive. There was also some construction noise but again it quickly became background noise. I would highly recommend the apartments to anyone looking for Vancouver accomodation, especially if they want to enjoy some charm rather than a shiny, modern hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the soutside are closer to the Skytrain and probably noisier
