Guest Reviews of The Barclay House
"The Barclay House is one of our favourite local gems. My husband and I can't recommend it enough, especially for romantic weekends! Our last stay at the Barclay House was lovely as always - quiet, peaceful, and so relaxing. Dennis (the host and manager) is wonderfully friendly and incredibly accommodating. He also makes excellent breakfasts! Super filling, wholesome, and nutritious. My husband and I especially love to stay here because it's also so close to the heart of downtown Vancouver while still being lovely and secluded. Entering the home is like stepping into a secret garden, beautiful and magical. For those who want a romantic weekend in a heritage home with that period vibe (Victorian, Georgian, etc) - the Barclay House is the place to have it. An excellent place for anniversaries as well as proposals <3."
Charm in the City
"We have just spent the weekend at the Barclay and this accommodation was the highlight for sure...good neighbourhood, convenient for walking. The suite was very clean and comfortable. Denis was the consummate host serving up a delightful breakfast in the charming decor of the main floor. We will be back! J and C"
Amazing B&B in Downtown Vancouver
"We had an amazing stay here. Our host(Denis) was very kind, reliable, very helpful. This gem is located in Vancouver downtown. We stayed 9 days and didn’t need a car as everything could be done by walk from Barclay B&B ( Stanley Park, Robson Street for restaurants and shopping, Granville Island, Gastown, etc...) but for those who want to have a car, Barclay B&B has a free parking for their guest ( kinda rare in downtown).
We will be back here again while in Vancouver for sure. Highly recommended!"
Beautiful Place and Amazing Host!
"You can tell Dennis puts his heart into his B&B cause he makes the whole experience amazing! His balance of giving us the best stay possible while providing every COVID precaution necessary can’t be easy, but he does just that. The whole place from the room, the decorations, to the backyard seating area is thoughtfully put together to maximize his guests experience. Breakfast was made by him as well and it was delicious. Highly recommend! Will definitely be back again."
Centre of the City
"Barclay house is the grand old lady of Vancouver B&B's right in the centre of the city, charming, comfortable, convenient and affordable. During the pandemic the breakfasts have been cancelled, sadly, since they were great, but there are very good breakfast places a short walk away and the rates have been reduced to reflect this new reality. Parking is free with the room though, which is a rare gift in an expensive city. Usually a destination for Cruise ship travelers and others from all around the world, the Barclay House has become a favorite for staycationers from within Canada, until a vaccine is available. We ourselves live miles outside the city and use Barclay House as almost a second home whenever we need to get our urban fix. It's the perfect solution. Close to everything downtown, steps away from exciting Robson Street and minutes by car to all the must see spots such as Granville Island, English Bay and Stanley Park. It's a lovely spot. We think you'll really enjoy it."
