Barclay House Bed and Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2012

The room (Garden Suite) was large with an own entrance on the ground floor. We had on own living room with a couch & TV. In the sleeping room there is a electric fire place. All rooms were lovely decorated.

The location in the Barclay street is PERFECT. All Downtown restaurants, shopping sites, attractions and even Stanlay Park are in walking distance and the house is in a quiet area. In case you have a car, free parking is provided.

Dennis and all the staff is absolutely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay in the Barclay House B&B a lot. Ask Dennis about restaurant recommendations - we enjoyed all of his tips.

Breakfast is served in the main area of the house with 3 courses.

Room Tip: Garden Suite is very nice with own entrance.

I went to Vancouver for a 3-day conference, and i'm not one to have others choose accommodations on my behalf. I found this place at tripadvisor (Great resource as always), and trusted my fellow traveler's five star reviews. Got the Beach Room, and i could not take myself away from the place. I can't ask for more from a BB place. It was clean, and quiet. two things i need especially during conferences. The food served was okay, though i'm not much of an eater also. I'd definitely book again at Barclay's House this coming summer of 2013, as I've not really had the time to go around the place. Very convenient for people like me who like to walk around and see the community. Really close to where the action is - Stanley Park, the Granville Ferry and China Town! Kudos Guys!

I wanted to book 2 nights at Barclay House for early January 2012 and use a gift certificate I was given for one night's stay leaving me to pay for one night. I was informed that with the new owners were not honouring gift certificates issued by the previous owner. How odd and non-condusive to customer acquisition & retention. These new owners obviously do not understand the fine art of hospitality. It's unbelievable that with even a near full availability and commenting that "things are slow", they opted not to accept the certificate plus the one extra night to be paid - after all, someone paid for that certificate in the first place as well !

We regret that your gift certificate was not honored. Please take into consideration that accountability of previous owner was not endorsed to the new owner, if you're familiar with legalities, the deed of sale always have this quote "free from any liens, claims of whatever kind, nature from third person. I agree that it was paid for you but the payment isn't to the new owner and isn't part of sale as well. What was billed to you is for the service and accommodation rendered by the current management who precisely have different organization from manpower to supplies. We hope this clears the matter.
