The Balfour Inn
Ranked #36 of 54 Vancouver B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 May 2010

This is not a flashy hotel- it is the opposite. Probably set in the most exclusive neighbourhood in Western Canada... About 10 mins walk away from BC Children's Hospital - which made it really easy for us to visit our niece. They offer a discount for those who need a room to visit loved ones in hospital. Having stayed in many bed and breakfasts in England and Italy - you get a very average breakfast here - but it is in such a safe neighbourhood and we love to walk! The internet was a bit unreliable but it is such a big house... We found that sitting in the main reception room had good signal.

Reviewed 20 February 2010

Our room was very small, and the bathroom contained a handheld shower in a non-functional jacuzzi and multiple lady bugs scrawling around. We didn't have any amenities besides the morning breakfast and hotel towels. No toiletries nor blowdryer were provided. Breakfast was simple (eggs, bread coffee, and fruit) and the internet was spotty. Overall, not the idea of a romantic getaway.
