“The best kept secret in DT Cancouver”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

Dennis and his staff provide great rates, quaint rooms and the best service possible. The Barclay House is the perfect hideaway right in the heart of Vancouver.

Te rooms are always spotless and te food is always delicious!

this was our first time in Vancouver. We decided to stay at the Barclay house and it was truly an awesome stay. Dennis was the perfect host. the breakfast both mornings was absolutely delicious. we had fresh cookies in our room at night which made it a perfect treat at the end of the day after sightseeing. Room was clean and very spacious and comfortable. Felt like home. Location was perfect - walking distance to everything. Close to the dock for our cruise. Dennis went out of his way to help us out. Very quiet and relaxing. Would stay there in a heartbeat if traveling to Vancouver again.

We stayed 2 nights, the breakfast was 3 courses - little portions. The house is romantic, the room smal - we had king size bed - with a second room with tv etc. It is in a neighbour-street mostly quiet.

For our last night in Vancouver before going back to France, we chose this charming yellow house near Stanley Park. Our garden suite was very nicely decorated and very quiet. The bed was very confortable, we arrived on a sunday evening and everything was perfectly organized, even cookies on a plate on the bed!!
The parking space in the back of the house very useful!!
Breakfast was a moment of joy with our host Dennis who was so friendly and helpful. Beautiful dining room too!
Next time we go to Vancouver, it will definitely be the FIRST place where we'll stay!!.

We found Barclay House through friends in San Francisco in 2009. It was such a romantic spot that we got married, then and there, in the living room and have returned each year since to celebrate. The Garden Room is cool and quiet despite being on the street level. It has a room separate from the bedroom that will accommodate six easily for cocktails. We stayed there one night because Haidaway, our favorite, was not available until our second day. Haidaway, also on the ground level is steps away from a secluded garden patio where we sipped wine at the end of
the day. Dennis has been the host for all of our visits. This year a delightful team of Japanese women joined him to serve the scrumptious breakfast and, without being seen, refresh the room magically. As usual Dennis greeted us near the end of breakfast to help us plan our day walking in various parts of this wonderful city. He always found something new and different whether it was sightseeing, shopping or dining. Barclay House is a must for us when we are in Vancouver!

Room Tip: Trust Dennis to provide great advice on which rooms are available. In our case it meant changing roo...

Unbelievable stay at the Barclay House BnB over a long weekend, post cruise. The location was perfectly located to touring all around town. The breakfast was wonderful every day and the staff was so courteous and polite. The room was spotless, as was the entire common area of the BnB. Dennis is clearly a very talented inn-keeper that tries to please his customers. I would definitely stay there again. best wishes to Dennis and his staff for making our stay so wonderful.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Peak Room. The stairs are a little steep - FYI, if that's a concern.

We had 10 great nights at Barclay house. Can not recommend it more highly to potential guests. We stayed in The Peak Room which was beautifully appointed. The service from Dennis and his team was outstanding and we were really sad to say goodbye. Barclay House is really convenient to the harbor area and close to some great restaurants like Adeccio on Haro Street.
This is a great all round choice for those wishing to avoid big hotels.

Room Tip: The Peak Room is on the top attic floor and has lots of space and a spacious bathroom.
