We enjoyed our one night stay at this quiet charming well maintained B&B with secure parking available. The owners were accessible, pleasant and clearly care about the details. Sherry, muffins and a stocked pantry are a nice touch. Charmingly decorated for Christmas. Be sure to ask for full description of planned breakfast from owners when checking in since waitress' sketchy description did not convey the thoughtful integration of the appetizing breakfast plate.

Beautifully restored 1897 property. Antique furniture throughout with each bedroom being decorated differently. A warm, cosy, relaxing atmosphere has been created within the whole property. Front and back garden areas soothing to sit in. The kitchen area is open at all times for guests to partake of hot and cold drinks along with homemade baked biscuits and cakes. A wonderful served breakfast is provided in a beautifully presented dining room. All of this is inclusive in the price which was extremely reasonable. In a nice part of downtown Vancouver in a leafy street and close to shops. Very highly recommend. · Did not dislike one thing.

The plus sides are: the location is good, walking distance of downtown and West End yet fairly quiet; there's a lounge and you can help yourself to coffee/tea and cookies etc when you want; the clientele all seemed very nice and chatty; the person who checked us in (Michelle) and the breakfast waitress were friendly and helpful. On the down side the decor is tired and furnishings shabby- particularly in our room which had depressing, old, rather ragged dark brown carpet. Some of the fairly random bits of old furniture were broken, eg a chest of drawers which you couldn't use because the drawers didn't open. The only electrical point near a mirror didn't work. The owners are obviously obsessed with sugar- there's sweets everywhere, cookies and cake in the kitchen and the breakfast offer is overwhelmingly sweet and sickly. Despite saying clearly on arrival that we didn't eat sweet stuff for breakfast, the only yoghurt available to eat with fruit was sweetened, one "course" was cake and eggs and half-cooked veg were served atop something described as olive oil and parmesan great but which turned out to be a sweet cake with a sugar topping- just unpleasant with a fried egg on it! After politely and apologetically making it clear once again that we didn't want to eat cake, we were served eggs and toast next day though the toast was still quite sweet. I felt that the cook seemed to take against us for our preference despite us being perfectly polite about it so I was rather uncomfortable. Why not have a healthy option available routinely- there are lots of people who might not say anything but really don't want to eat like this.

We spent two and a half weeks travelling in BC and wanted a special treat for our last night. Rather than return to an impersonal hotel, I felt that a high quality Guest House would fit the bill nicely. I had read so many glowing reviews of O'Canada House on Tripadvisor (with frequent references to the wonderful breakfast!) so I felt I had hit the jackpot when I managed to secure a room. It was an expensive overnight at $385 dollars so expectations were high. Unfortunately it didn't fully deliver for me, and although it was a pleasant stay I wouldn't book again. Positive Points: 1) It's in a very convenient location right in the downtown area of the city and within walking distance of plenty of shops and restaurants, the waterfront etc. 2) The house is quaint and it's quite unbelievable to see this 100+ year old house standing proud in the middle of plots filled with high rise apartments and offices! 3) The staff on duty were all friendly and polite. 4) There's a lovely Sitting Room where guests can relax and mingle, plus there's full access to an area of the kitchen where you can help yourself to hot and cold drinks with muffins & snacks. 5) Off street parking is included in the cost of the B&B Negative Points: 1) The lack of choice for breakfast was the biggest disappointment to us. When we arrived in the dining room we helped ourselves to the muesli served up on the dresser with a nice bowl of fresh fruit pieces and a greek style yoghurt. Tea/Coffee, Juice and a hot plate where then served to our table without any choice of either being given. The juice was a orange/cranberry flavour and to be fair it was tasty. The hot plate varies from day to day and unfortunately it didn't appeal to either of us. It was a mixed pepper and sundried tomato frittata served with a sausage and side salad. My husband can't abide peppers, so when it arrived to the table I offered to eat his frittata and give him my sausage. The sausages were very highly flavoured (something quite common in Canada we noted) and the frittata had a large dollop of pesto sitting on top which I found overpowering. We had to ask for some toast to accompany the breakfast and when we finished up we both wondered what it was that had prompted the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor? 2) Our bathroom in the South Suite was very small. The shower enclosure would be a tight squeeze for anyone "bigger than average bear" and the missing shower door had been replaced by a curtain, which gave it a cheap look. Fine in budget accommodation but this probably the most expensive guest house I've ever stayed in and I thought that the decor and standards should reflect that. 3) Our bedroom was also small and it was the only time on our holiday where we shared a standard double bed, so perhaps we missed our space because of that! I would like to have offered a higher rating as there were good points about O'Canada House. However considering the price we paid and the anticlimax of breakfast I don't feel it warranted 4 stars.

We stayed here for four nights in August. O Canada House is in a central location, 10 minutes walk from the waterfront, the city and Stanley Park. Breakfast was yogurt and fruit with a set cooked dish that changed daily and a personal favourite was Grandma's Pancakes. The pantry that is available to guests has a selection of cookies, cakes, cereals and drinks and is always open. The staff were always helpful and friendly.A delightful quirky place to stay. Would definitely stay here again.
