“Very nice room in lovely B and B”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

Our room was large and comfortable in this lovely old but beautifully detailed and furnished home.The private bathroom was huge--way bigger than ours at home. Lovely breakfast room with good hot and cold breakfasts (we were catered to very graciously and served special vegetarian omelets) and excellent coffee. We felt very welcome and at home. The only drawback is that the house fronts an extremely busy and constantly trafficked multi-lane road, so it was fortunate that parking was available in the alley behind. We were surprised at how quiet our room (at the back of the house) was given the busy road.

Room Tip: take a room in the back of the house

I was expecting a B&B, but this place is more like a very nice boutique hotel. Nothing wrong with boutique hotels, just not where I prefer to stay.
Positive:
-The best mattress and bedding I've experienced outside of home.
-Beautifully appointed
Negative
-The front units are 50 feet from a six lane highway. They have done what they can to minimize noise, but six lanes of traffic is too much to make go away.

I'd give them an excellent on the room, a poor based on sleep (because of noise), and an average on breakfast ( two pieces of bacon and, ((by 9 o'clock)) a slightly old tasting entree.
So, unfortunately, it averages out to ..... average.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back.

GranvilleBB, Owner at Granville House B&B, responded to this review, 17 November 2016
Thank you for your positive comments "best mattress and bedding I've experienced outside of home", which is high praise indeed! I am sorry you had a poor sleep. Our room description states: "Although Elm (Junior Suite) is our noisiest room at traffic level with Granville Street, there is no commercial traffic, public functions, sirens, car horns/alarms, sea plane & helicopter noise associated with most all downtown accommodations." Although Google Maps shows Granville Street as Highway 99, it is a commuter traffic only STREET with a speed limit of 50kmh (30mph), making this the slowest highway in North America. We recommend all other suites for light sleepers, or to just close the Elm bedroom window at night. Randy

Granville House was my first experience of a B&B as I have always preferred the more impersonal atmosphere of a hotel. I was pleasantly surprised! I liked the freedom to come and go that the key-code access offered us, loved the large comfortable bed with the luxury linen and choice of pillows. The bathroom was beautiful with plenty of room for personal toiletries and a window that opened! Although I really appreciated the air conditioning and ceiling fan, I was so happy to be able to open a window. It was great to find a fridge in the room (complete with bottled water which is another of my personal musts) and the large closet with a safe was very useful.
The house was beautifully clean and tastefully decorated and we were happy to observe the 'shoes off' policy - we don't wear shoes in our own home so would not expect to keep them on in someone elses!
We were visiting our daughter who lives within walking distance of Granville House B&B so the location was absolutely perfect but it would have been equally convenient for sightseeing in the city.
Our hosts were on holiday themselves for most of our eight night stay although we did meet Randy at breakfast on our last morning. However, the knowledegable Shandy and delightful Leica (apologies for the possible mis-spelling) took good care of us in their absence.
We have stayed at Granville's sister property, Hycroft, on a previous visit when we needed the flexibility that a self-catering suite offered and we would certainly stay at either property again.
Thank you for a very enjoyable and comfortable stay although, having read the rave reviews, we are very disappointed not to have experienced the 'dutch babies' at breakfast - maybe next time!!

I can't say enough good things about Granville House. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The premises are spotless. We stayed in the Birch suite and it was very comfortable and quiet. In fact, the bed was more comfortable than my bed at home! The breakfasts are fantastic whether you go for cooked or continental. The location is very convenient and the neighborhood is fun to walk around in. i would definitely stay here again and would recommend Granville House to anyone planning a trip to Vancouver.

Would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone travelling to Vancouver!! Can't wait to return someday!! Very nice property with great service. Room was nice, clean, quiet. Loved all of the extra touches like slippers and robes, i-pod dock, bottled water in fridge, fresh cookies every afternoon. :-) Breakfast each morning was fantastic!! Love that the hosts are into healthy eating/living but also provide delicious food (I've become obsessed with steel cut oatmeal since staying here!). Bus stop is nearly right outside the front door and it is a straight shot into the city. Hosts were very helpful with recommendations (dining, things to do, etc.) and transportation questions. Cannot say enough good things about Granville House B&B! Thanks for a fantastic stay!!

We have stayed at a lot of bed and breakfast establishments, but this was the best one so far in our far flung travels. We chose the junior suite to stay in because we liked the en suite bathroom best from the pictures. Both the bedroom and bathroom were great. The door code allowed for easy, secure in and out of the home. The shoes off policy was a little off putting at first, but considering their beautiful white carpeting throughout, it was certainly understandable. The owners were available but, at the same time unobtrusive. Breakfast was delicious with a different homemade entree each morning. The afternoon cookies we were always greeted with after a busy day out and about were greatly appreciated. If all bed and breakfast establishments were as beautiful, well maintained with great management I would never stay in a hotel again. Thank you so much for a great experience.

Room Tip: I think that the junior suite has the best bathroom, but that is just my assessment from the picture...
