Harmony House
Ranked #9 of 30 Richmond B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 September 2013

So i'm no stranger to B&B's and I decided to stay at one in on my trip to Vancouver BC. I don't know how this is claimed to be a "B&B" since Breakfast is NOT INCLUDED, moreover, if you do pay the 5$ charge you can have a continental breakfast. Pretty silly...

Linda the home owner is very nice along with her family that run the B&B, however they really need to re-evaluate their business model. I felt that I was staying at someone's except I was paying for it.

Pros
-Room was fairly nice and mostly clean (explained below)
-Nice looking property
-Close to lots of restaurants in Richmond

Cons
-Garbage still garbage in there with a rotting milk carton
-Shower glass has grim all over it needs some very strong detergent to get it off
-Shower head makes a hell of a noise
-Can be noisy if others are in other rooms (someone packed and left at 4:00 am woke us up)
-Had to ask for a sheet under the duvet, as I do not like sleeping on a duvet which is usually not washed between guests.
-NO BREAKFAST

Now to the owners of the B&B, I understand you still work full time, and you are supplementing your income this way, but you REALLY have to put some more effort in here.

Some recommendations
-Purchasing travel sized soap and shampoo for each guest is a minimal cost having shared bottles doesn't sit right especially since you can stay at a hotel for the cost of the room.
-Having a breakfast menu, and someone to make it for your guests a big part of running a B&B
-Installing a locking pad with a combination or something for the front door to allow people to get in at all hours is better than just leaving the door open.
-Collecting money on check out instead of all scattered times
