This was our third trip to Vancouver and The Barclay House where we had an intimate wedding
two years ago in their living room. The House is tucked away in a residential neighborhood. We stayed in the Haidaway for the second time. It is a spacious ground level room that could sleep four but is cozy for two. Its special feature is a jacuzzi. As soon as plans are conceived for a vacation we make our reservation; it is that special. The house is only 2 blocks away from Robson street where we find several of our favorite U.S. stores.

The best part of our stay is the staff. Arty and Dennis were there to greet us on our arrival this year. Once we were settled, we spent a little time talking in general about plans and any special needs. Dennis was ready with suggestions including a day trip to Victoria which was not in our thinking when we arrived. What a great addition to our usual wandering around the city. Somehow he came up with new and different things to do remembering our previous trips.

The highlight of each day was breakfast. Arty comes up with a delicious and creative meal every day. They are well presented and the servings so large that I took something away for a snack each day. I think I put on a couple of pounds during our stay even while watching the amount of food I ate. Part of his job was to supply us each with a fresh cookie snack at the foot of our bed each evening.

It was just like home without having to do any work. We cold not have done it better ourselves. This will be our home of choice whenever we travel to Vancouver.

My husband and I stayed at The Barclay House while we enjoyed Vancouver before taking a coastal cruise. We loved our time at The Barclay House MORE than the cruise!!! The stayed in the forest room and wow! What a comfy bed! We were overwhelmed with the great service from Dennis and Art. The breakfast was outstanding everyday. Our fab was the eggs benedict. Dennis had great suggestions for dinner and activities. Everything was within walking distance. Quiet neighborhood but close to thecity center

My husband, daughter and I recently spent five nights at the Barclay House. This is our third stay and every visit is most enjoyable thanks to the hospitality and friendliness of our host Dennis and the delicious breakfasts provided by Art. Breakfast usually consists of some fresh fruit, muffins and a hot entree, more than enough to carry us through the day. The location is excellent within walking distance ( a few blocks) of downtown , Stanley Park and water taxis to Granville Island.
The Inn is tastefully decorated and offers a more intimate environment than a large hotel. We stayed in the Peak Room which offers a day bed for a third person. It is on the top floor and is quite spacious. I read the other reviews about the noisy neighbours.The only disturbance we experienced was from annoying seagulls in the early morning.The problem was solved by shutting our windows. For those of you who like the B and B experience, Barclay House will not disappoint.

My husband and I stayed at this charming B&B for two nights and we were very delighted by our stay there. We were put in the "Peak Room", which is on the top floor. The bed was very comfortable with good sheets, large sitting area, skylights, and a good size bathroom. One minor complaint, the ceiling fan only goes on with the light, so we had to use the portable noisy air-conditioner.
The breakfasts we were served were delicious and we didn't go away hungry. Lovely presentation in a charming dinning room. Our server, Dennis was great and made sure we were comfortable during our stay there. He always had a smile and more than happy to help with whatever.
The B&B was in a good location. Quiet neighborhood and there was parking in the back. It was a bit pricey, but it was well worth it. We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Narrow stairs to the room on top floor, but like that it is a very large room.

We stayed here for 2 nights in the Forest room.Barclay House is beautiful and very well preserved.Our room was lovely with a very high but comfy bed.Breakfast was nice but a choice would be a good ! Dennis was friendly and helpful,checking out things on the computer and getting us a taxi etc.Downside was a very noisy man in the building next door who woke us up at 4 am shouting at some-one,so not much sleep after that.However Dennis said they will get that sorted.Also the room was a bit hot and we had to close the window due to the noisy neighbour.
