My husband and I stayed at the English Bay Inn for 3 nights in early June 2013 at the start of our 2 week holiday. We chose the English Bay Inn due to the price, location and excellent Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed.
After a 9 hour flight we were greeted by the manager (Greg) with a warm welcome and the news that as we had had a long journey he had upgraded us to the suite! This was indicative of the sort of hospitality on offer at the English Bay Inn and from Greg. He was very warm and welcoming and always on hand for information and a chat.
The room (Secluded Getaway) was comfortable and spacious and the B&B is well located a short walk from English Bay Beach (great for people watching), a variety of restaurants on Denman street and close to Stanley Park. You can probably walk into the centre of Vancouver but we got buses which were no problem (you can buy a pack of tickets at the 7 – 11 which is close to the Inn).
The breakfasts were fantastic; my husband doesn’t eat eggs so Greg took this as a personal challenge to find something for him to eat.
We hired bikes to cycle around the Stanley Park seawall and inside the park, however, I would recommend a mountain bike if you are going inside the park as the tracks are rough and we got a puncture.
I read with surprise that Greg has left the English Bay Inn and I wish him all the best for the future and good luck to the new manager, Greg will be a hard act to follow!!
