    Great hotel in an amazing location

    Absolutely loved this hotel! The location right on English Bay was perfect. Just a short stroll and you're in Stanley Park. At check in we asked for a room with a sofa bed so our teenagers could have separate beds and they happily obliged. Wow the room was enormous! Plenty of room for a family of 4 and a great walk in cupboard to store our suitcases every day. We ate breakfast in the hotel every day and it was delicious. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Hotel is in a great location opposite the beach. It’s in a nice area, which is important as there are some parts of Vancouver you don’t want to end up in (the east side, eg E Hasting St). It’s quite an old hotel so the exterior isn’t as glamorous as some of the newer ones. But the inside is fine. The room we were in was very clean, spacious and well decorated. It has a bar area at the front and the staff were very friendly. They had a live blues band on that evening and there was a great atmosphere. The only reason I didn’t give it full marks for amenities is because it had no swimming pool or gym. But otherwise excellent in my view.

    Great location o. English Bay - perfect for exploring Stanley Park on foot in particular. Good food and attentive staff. Bedroom could have done with a little refurbishing, but was okay.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Old fashioned and TIRED. It needs modernising

    Impossible to get seated at breakfast. Seated not served!! “We are busy”! Shocking attitude from staff arguing with me when all I wanted was to be seated. Room dingy. Paint avocado!!!! No charging points by bed. It is resting on its laurels. Major overhaul needed. I shall not be returning.
