Walk Into the Past in this Historical House with Modern Amenities
Built in 1906, our recently refurbished Heritage Registered Vancouver Inn has interior furnishings reminiscent of a by-gone time along with modern amenities such as refurbished ensuite bathrooms, a complimentary butlers pantry with refreshments and free wi-fi. A hall gallery of old photos of Vancouver, taken by the son of the first owner of the house "Edwards Family" remind us of how modern Vancouver has become without having lost its charm.
Vancouver is known for its conference facilities, if you are attending meetings in Vancouver please call for a convention or corporate rate.
Open year round.
LISTED AS ONE OF THE TOP 10 HOTELS IN VANCOUVER
Harking back to the days when the West End was Vancouver’s first residential neighbourhood, the 1906-built West End Guest House was once home to the Edwards family – some of their photographs of early Vancouver adorn the walls. Current owners Paul Wylie and David Birch have modernised the interiors and plumbing (all rooms are en suite), while retaining a period charm. The seven individually styled and named guest suites range from lush garden level (the Parisian) to cosy attic with skylights (the Pair and the Spare). Complimentary gourmet breakfasts, “sherry hour” and free Wi-Fi add to the charm. It is on historic Haro Street, and bicycles are available for trips to the nearby Stanley Park seawall, or Davie and Robson Street shopping areas. The parlour with hearth is ideal for winter contemplation, while the veranda and garden beckon in summer months.
"I love this place and wish I'd found it sooner"
I had a fantastic time at this warm, welcoming, and wonderful establishment (You can see why it's rated #1). In fact, the place is so great i wrote a poem about it.
"An Ode to the West End Guest House"
Although you might be a world traveler, your life is not complete until you've been to the West End Guest House on Historic Haro Street.
The Place is filled with antiques and there's Mozart on the wall. You will be treated like your royalty by David and by Paul.
You will enjoy delicious breakfasts served in splendid company. And you'll have sherry with your cookies or a cup of herbal tea.
The spirits of the Edward's clan smile on it from above because two gentlemen with taste and class restored their home with love.
Yes, you can search Vancouver city from the mountains to the sea, but I would bet my life you'll NEVER find a better B&B

"A true West End Gem"
Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Paul & David and as we entered we stepped over the threshold into another time. The walls adorned with rich history captivated me as we made our way to our 3rd floor luxury room peppered with personal touches it felt so comfortable clean and welcoming. We joined our gracious hosts for sherry hour in the parlour. A fun event that i will not forget soon. Oh Sherry! For breakfast David prepared a delightful 3 course, which included, a favorite of mine, How did he know !!? We we were luck enough to catch a glimpse of the space before they embarked on a small cosmetic reno to imprint their new journey within the house. Congratulations Paul & David I can not wait to return to enjoy your interpretation of the West End Guest House.
