“Loved the Granville B&B”
Reviewed 1 September 2008

We had a wonderful stay here! The rooms are clean & comfy. The bed's are wonderful. Each room has a safe & a flat screen TV. Pam & Randy the owners are friendly & very helpful. Eduardo, makes the most delicious breakfasts & speaks 3 languages. They have 1 hot item each morning (like a frittata & ham) plus fruit, cereal's etc. Having a code emailed prior to our stay to punch into the front door for entry was perfect ,since our flight was delayed 4 hrs & we arrived late at night. We were able to get right into the house & our room without having to meet with the owners. The location is great being a few minutes outside of the hustle & bustle of downtown & an easy 15 min drive from the airport. There are several gardens within minutes. We highly recommend this B&B. Their website has great photos of the house.

We felt very comfortable at this bed and breakfast. It was very clean, very comfortable and a perfect place for us to stay.

Pros:
They have a keyless entry system that allows you to check in on your own. The owners e-mailed us a code for the front door and our suite. We had a late arrival to Vancouver, so this worked out nicely for us. We knew we weren't keeping someone up because of our delay.

The house is very pretty and the common areas are clean and neat.

The room was spotless, very clean. The bed was comfortable with nice linens. The bathroom was spacious and immaculate with new fixtures. Robes were provided for our use and locally made lotions and soaps in the bathroom were a nice touch. The room was a good size and came with a television.

Parking was also very easy, right behind the house.

We unfortunately fell ill while in Vancouver and the owners were very accommodating, preparing a breakfast tray for me to take up to our room for my boyfriend who wasn't feeling very well.

The owners were very friendly and I enjoyed the breakfast that they prepared, a baked dish called a blueberry baby (sort of like a healthy bread pudding) and granola, yogurt, etc.

Cons:
The B'n'B is located on a busy street and it took us a couple tries to figure out how to pull into the drive to park. You'll get directions with your room code so make sure to review them. The room we got wasn't noisy though, even though we were on a busy street.

We were so happy with this place that after reaching another B&B in Victoria, we are really missing Granville House. The House is just so beautiful and me being a clean freak couldnt find anything to complain about. Randy and Pam are so proud of their place and rightly so. The room was lovely! It had a secure door, beautiful shower and bathroom. The fridge and safes made it feel like you were in a 5 star hotel. The breakfast was nice and the hosts so friendly!

The rooms dont all have TV but they made sure that we had some viewing pleasure through Apple TV.

You should definitely book a room here as you ownt regret it. 15mins drive to downtown. Great value!!

I wish I had a house like this!!

Thanks to Randy and Pam for a wonderful and memorable stay.

Thanks Sukhi & Raman, it was great getting to know you!

As of last week all of our suites now have TV's, (3 of which are brand new HDTV 32" flat screen in Birch, Cedar and Elm). Birch and Cedar have the Apple TV (as mentioned in this review), which features on demand programming on Pod Casts ie local/international news when you want to watch it, access to YouTube, guests can also purchase movies/tv shows to watch on demand using their iTunes account. We have also uploaded all of our iTunes songs that guests have access to also (12,000 songs). We are working with our contractor to have the cable TV rewired into these suites so they will have cable access in the near future.

Cheers,

Pam and Randy

This was our first B&B experience, and I must say that it was a great one! Pam & Randy were great hosts. The house is beautiful and lavishly decorated. The breakfasts were fantastic. They weren't your typical continental breakfasts. During our stay, we enjoyed Belgian waffles, crepes, and eggs Benedict, just to name a few. The individual safes located within the suite was a nice addition, something you don't even see in normal hotel rooms. The internet connection was strong and we had no problem connecting whatsoever.

The stay at Granville House was more than we expected. We will definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to friends that are planning to travel to Vancouver.

B & B in Vancouver, B.C. on Granville:

The "Granville House B & B" at 5050 Granville Street in Vancouver was such a "great find" for me to stumble in to. I was searching in VRBO.COM (vacation rentals by owner) to just find something more personable and less institutional than a hotel for my stay, but with a reasonable price. Originally, the Granville House was a very stately mansion of quality construction that was then transformed into a Bed and Breakfast. Pam and Randy Vogel, the owner's have done what I think is, an incredible job of building/ creating this bed and breakfast. Each room has its own electronic number code, so not needing keys was convenient. And, the morning breakfast was served in the common dining area of many tables set with linen and silverware. Incredible entres of eggs and cheese, sausage, fruits, breads, cereals, yogurts, and juices were provided each day. Our room was so spacious and very beautiful, using fine quality furnishings with muted and soft tones and colors. The bed and bedding was especially luxurious and comfortable. The den/study had a desk, mini refrigerator, coffee maker, and a sofa with a fold out bed, if needed. The bathroom was absolutely stunning with such unique and bold tile and design. The tub, the shower stall, the sink, the lighting, and all the fixtures were so artistic in design, it made me feel like "a piece of art", while you're using the bathroom. As if presenting a signature item representing the B & B, they also provided these large cobalt blue bottles of "purely saltspring" products which are a product of B.C., Canada. From the body wash in the shower to the body lotion and all the rest, they seem to be such a high quality of product. They even have order forms if you'd like to buy some to take home with you. During my stay, Pam and Randy were so genuine and obviously loving the B & B business. As we were "out of town" visitors, they were so helpful in translating for us ideas, suggestions, and "how to get to" directions in order to make our stay even more successful. I especially loved the location on Granville Street and being able to catch the bus right there. It took five minutes to get into Vancouver downtown by bus, so that was convenient. But, driving my car from the B & B was also convenient. I would highly recommend the stay. I would love to go again. Amd. some day I will.

  • Liked — High quality of furnishings and decor, food, linens, china, silverware, service, and an "eye to detail".
  • Disliked — Did not have a TV/DVD/Sound System in room for entertainment (they were working on it)

The house is in great condition, clean, modern, and has great ammenities. Entry to the front door and rooms is provided by code that the owners email you so you can come and go at any hour without bothering anyone. It's not the typical B&B scene but an excellent place to stay.

The bathroom was very nice with both a glass shower and separate tub. All ammenities are provided.

There was no TV in our room - not a problem for me.

I got up too early for the hosted breakfast but they left out cereal, bread, OJ, milk, and yoghurt so I was still able to eat. Other guests said they were served very tasty dutch babies.

I recommend highly for the more hotel-like B&B stay.

Upon arriving at the Granville House I was surprised to discover that it wasent quite what I had expected. It is situated on a very busy highway which is quite noisy. For the price it costs to stay here, you would expect to at least have a television in your room. There aren't any. The food is o.k., not bad, but quite basic. I found that it lacked imagination, and the eggs that were served were quite greasy. It would be nice to see some more imaginative choices for these prices. Things like smoked salmon, or a selection of different breads. The internet connection is not always reliable, and at times you need to go to the main room, to access the internet. Despite these inconveniences, I will say that the house is quite nice, and the beds are fairly comfortable. I have stayed at their other facility hycroft, and was much happier.

  • Liked — Comfortable beds
  • Disliked — The cost does not justify what is offered. Considering lack of amenities, the cost is too high

GranvilleBB, Owner at Granville House B&B, responded to this review, 17 November 2016
Since you stayed with us, we have added LCD TVs to each room, with HD cable box programming, and much faster internet service with routers on every floor for a more stable connection. We also provide a more robust breakfast menu, with many healthy options, available from 5am to 11am every day. Although Granville Street is labelled as Highway 99 on Google Maps, this would qualify as the slowest highway in the world with a 50km (30mph) speed limit. Only commuter traffic is allowed on Granville Street as commercial traffic is diverted to Oak Street. That said, we have added a sign to your Elm Junior Suite recommending "light sleepers should not open bedroom window at night" (open the bathroom window instead), or choose any of the 4 suites recommended for light sleepers.
