We absolutely loved our stay here at Barclay House for our
first every visit to Vancouver. Everything was wonderful -
perfect! The bed was very comfy and we loved everything in
our room, including the tasty cookies. The breakfasts were
fabulous. The décor in the home was great. We loved all the
beautiful mirrors, artwork. Thank you! J & R Moskalik (Edina,
Barclay House - what will we remember? Among many small delights
was the way the shower is constructed so that I can adjust
the water flow, hot and cold, with my toe! It was akin to
stepping into the pages of Architectural Digest when we first
entered "our" room. The case of grey, white, and seasonal
colored carpeting is so restful and the table lamps with their
modern play on traditional form is/are a good finish. How
nice to have original gallery worthy decorating the 1st floor
rooms. As for the food, gourmet comes to mind. The staff was
bright and cheerful, enlightened and informative.. Vancouver
is a favorite city for us and God smiled on us to send us
to Barclay House Bed and Breakfast in Vancouver. Will share
it via "word of mouth" to others. - J Hast & M Lax
Wonderful house and so welcoming. Décor - Fabulous. Food

How do you start planning a trip all the way from Netherlands
to Vancouver? We searched the internet and found this place,
which looked nice on the pictures. So we called, talked to
Dennis and made our reservation. On arrival, The Barclay House
surpassed our expectations. It wasn't just a nice place, it
was stunningly beautiful. Someone with great taste had done
a marvelous job decorating the room (Haidaway) and all the
staff went over board to make us feel so very welcome. The
breakfast, the daily cookies and last but not least the champagne
on arrival & prior to departure that we are savoring now as
I am writing this, exceptional! This is just the beginning
of our trip through BC and I am convinced the competition
will have a hard time holding a candle to your much appreciated
high standards. Thank you all for making this stay a memorable
one! - R & S Biermans (Netherlands)
Thank you so much for providing such a lovely place to stay
- the champagne and cookies were a very effective pick me
up after our journey from the UK. The décor of the house is
fabulous and we very much enjoyed being looked after so well.
Thank once again and very best of luck for continuing as well
as well as you've started! - J & A Fulford (London UK)
What a wonderful experience here at Barclay House Bed and
Breakfast in Vancouver. We had a terrific stay and will spread

I want to thank the entire staff here at the Barclay House
for our wonderful stay - The Garden Suite was so lovely. The
colors, the little details, the incredibly comfortable bed!
We had a great time here in Vancouver. Busy, busy days filled
with wonderful attractions; and it felt so great to "come
home" to this house. I've given the address to so many cab
drivers, it feels like I live here… oh, and the cookies are
a great midnight treat!! I'm so glad the internet lead us
to this fantastic place. - Cat & Trin (San Francisco, CA)
We are so impressed with how you have though of everything
and offered it in such a beautiful way. So many fine things,
but one of the best was sitting comfortably on the front porch
and having visiting friends join us one afternoon. We know
"Southern Comfort" but this was more comfortable even. - A
& J Williamson (Chapel Hill NC)
From "The Peak" to "The Beach", the Barclay House was the
perfect place for an 89 year old, mother and daughter holiday.
We loved the breakfasts, cookies, décor, and kind hospitality,
but most of all, enjoyed our "serious porch sitting" after
a hard day of touring Vancouver. Thank you so much! - A Janty
& Marion Stutz (Madison, WI)
We had such a wonderful stay in The Peak Room! It was the
perfect starting point for exploring Vancouver and taking
a ferry ride up the Sunshine Coast. We felt very pampered
and well taken care of - thanks for a great vacation! - K
& D Kimelman (Seattle, WA)
We could only stay for one night, but wish to come back for
a longer visit. All the small details added up and made us
comfortable. We're even going to try to get the same sofa
(Garden Suite) for our house! - Ann Marie and Jonathan (Thousand
We loved our stay, comfortable room, good food, and we had
good weather! A perfect spot! Many thanks for the hospitality.
- M & M Baumber (London, England) and S & D Selwood (London,

end of our holiday. Bike riding and the Grouse Grind (suicide)
were great. Just as your Bed and Breakfast is. Keep it up
like this, thanks! - L & G Gouda (The Netherlands)
Thanks to Dennis and staff for such a wonderful place and a fantastic

Best Bed and Breakfast ever. Best staff, delicious cookies
that make me put so much kgs on… Duvets, so comfy. Manager,
what can we say about him? Friendly and always there when
we need. Need some wine? Dennis: "OK, I'll get it". It took 20
minutes, crossing the city, the wine arrives… The deco is
awesome. I feel I'm at home or visiting a very close friend.
Thanks for making my staying an awesome time. Looking forward
to come back. - Bella, Gloria, Luiz (Rio de Janeiro, Brasil)
