We stayed 2 nights in the 'garden room' which was a decent size and had a nice window seat that we could rest our luggage on top of. The garden room was quite warm, if not hot when we arrived. We found the room to be dusty in some places, the bathroon was not as clean as we would have expected and the overall quality was lacklustre. We did have a fridge, which I originally thought was a nice feature however, it had an odd smell and ended up transferring onto our water bottles.
Upon our arrival, Helen did provide a tabletop fan to cool our room down but it didn't really work and made for an uncomfortable sleepless first night. We did mention it to her the next morning, and she actually put in a window air conditioner later that day which we appreciated and made our last night of sleep much better.
The b&b itself is nicely decorated, with a charming garden & breakfast area. The b&b is in a good location, has free parking and is situated in a quaint neighbourhood, within walking distance to Queen Elizabeth park and an easy 5 minute reach to Cambie St which has many restaurants, cafes, etc. Helen was nice & friendly enough and I liked her Irish accent. The breakfasts were basic but adequate enough to fill us up (though we did get a muffin on our last morning, which we enjoyed).
Overall, we thought this b&b was subpar and overpriced.
