Activities/Attractions: Vancouver is the largest city in the province of British Columbia. It's surrounded by water on three sides and is nestled alongside the Coast Mountain Range. Vancouver is home to spectacular natural scenery and a bustling metropolitan core, and boasts one of the mildest climates in Canada.

A beautiful city on the west coast of Canada, Vancouver has a clean and safe downtown with a multitude of stylish shops. It offers ample sporting opportunities from sailing to skiing, or just walking round the giant Stanley Park that reaches out from downtown towards the North Shore.

Visiting Vancouver can be as diversified as you would like to make it. We are situated by the ocean, and by the mountains. Hemmed in by natural beauty, our greatest value is this proximity to the majesty of our surroundings.

"My first impression upon entering was," Wow, this looks better than the pictures on-line." Evan, one of the inn-keepers, greeted us warmly and showed us our lovely room with extra-long twin beds. That night and everyone thereafter we came home to warm cookies, a clean rooms with all the extras. There was even a laptop for use by guests to check e-mail, etc. Evan and Ron were graciously helpful, always happy to give directions, offer advice about restaurants and genuinely happy to be serving us. Finally, I must mention the breakfasts, which were unique each morning consisting of no less than 3 courses! Such a lovely place attracts wonderful guests; we met and talked to many interesting people during our stay. We loved Vancouver and felt we'd hit the jackpot with the West End Guesthouse!"

"This was one of the most enjoyable Bed & Breakfasts that we have ever stayed in. We know Vancouver very well & usually stay with family & friends but decided to stay the last 5 days in the West End close to the Galleries as the Apartment we usually stay in was not available. A Blessing in disguise! The antique decor was tasteful & comfortable. Everything was clean & well maintained. Then, of course our favourite time was the Breakfast club, starting our day meeting new & wonderful people while being served a Fabulous gourmet breakfast with pleasing presentation. We found ourselves lingering at the table enjoying the company. The West End Guest House has a warm & inviting ambience with friendly staff who are always available to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We highly recommend this great Home away from Home."

"Just returned to Scotland after spending two nights in this lovely guest house. Cannot be faulted, loved everything about this place. Breakfast was out of this world, and we really loved the home baking. The sherry and ice tea served on the deck added something special to wonderful place. Staff were brilliant and could not do enough for us. Loved the welcome card, the personal touch made us feel great. If you're planning a visit to Vancouver this place is a must. Thanks Evan for a wonderful stay!"

"A perfect start to our honeymoon. We stayed in the Terra Queen room, bed, steam shower and deco were just delightful. Breakfasts, sherry, sweets and cookies are the extras that make the West End stand out from the rest. Evan, his staff and the house were warm and welcoming and the location was unbeatable."

"We have stayed in B&Bs around the world and have never been disappointed. West End was one of the best we have stayed at and that is not easy when you are a group of 4 couples. Evan Penner is a wonderful host. All of our rooms were tastefully decorated and comfortable as are all of the public rooms. We had Room #8 (formally Terra Room) and highly recommend this room. This room is very large, has a fireplace and steam shower in the bathroom which my husband thoroughly enjoyed at the end of a long day of sightseeing. Breakfast was delicious, sherry served in the afternoon, coffee, tea, snacks available all day. One night we were too tired to go out and brought home wine and cheese and sat in the living room and had our own party. It was great. If you are able to get a reservation at this very popular B&B do not miss the opportunity."

"Quiet, relaxing, amazing breakfasts, friendly, most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, in walking distance from Stanley Park, Robson shops and great restaurants. Ron & Evan are great hosts, see to all your needs and make you feel at home. I highly recommend and will surely return. The warm cookies at the end of the day are delicious."

"The location is excellent and the room was extremely cozy. The amenities were better than a hotel and gourmet breakfast was simply delicious. I enjoyed meeting other guests at breakfast and they were also raving about how they had found this 'treasure' of a Vancouver. I would highly recommend staying here if you enjoy meeting others and want to shop on Robson Street. It's a deal!"

"My partner and I stayed at the West End Guesthouse for three nights and let me say, what a delight! We stayed in the Grand Queen Room in the top floor. How wonderful it was to have chocolate snacks and a special card written to welcome us. Although I love staying in high end hotels, I will definitely stay here again. Ron and Evan are generous hosts always with a warm smile! You can't find this experience anywhere else."

"It really was superb, Evan the owner and his very friendly team actually provided all the little homely touches that we didn't even know we needed but were fantastic when they arrived. The food was beautifully presented and always delicious and exciting. The rooms were all beautiful, we sampled 3 of them and we wanted for nothing whilst we were there. The Situation is perfect for Robson Street shopping and Coal Harbour with Stanley Park being just a short walk away. We would definitely recommend to anyone and on our next visit to Vancouver would not stay anywhere else. Check out their fantastic web site for photo's and information. If you read this Evan, Thanks Again for making us all so welcome."

"It was in June when we stayed for four nights at the very comfortable West End Guest House, and remember well the exceptional breakfasts served by very friendly staff. Sharing a large table with others meant we could share experiences which added to the enjoyment."

"The West End Guest House is a charming, beautiful, and luxurious B&B. The staff is very professional yet friendly and attentive. This is our fifth visit there ... we just can't wait to come back. The location is perfect: Most Vancouver attractions, such as Stanley Park, Canada Place, Davies Street, for example, are very close within easy walking distance. I like the fact that the house is in a very quiet neighborhood. The super clean rooms are well appointed with beautiful and comfortable furniture, and the beds are fitted with the most comfortable linens, feather filled comforters and pillows. The beds are so comfortable, you will have a hard time getting off bed! There is one thing guaranteed to get you up and running: the most delicious breakfast you'll ever have! I highly recommend the West End Guest House. Kudos to Evan and Ron for making this B&B such a pleasant and memorable experience."

"I must say that the West End Guest was an excellent choice for my week long stay in Vancouver. It was in the heart of downtown yet its location was an oasis of charm and quiet in this vibrant and growing metropolis. The breakfasts were wonderful and the "Cozy Double " room fit my needs perfectly. The location was ideal as a base for exploring the surrounding countryside of BC as well as the numerous delights of downtown Vancouver and its suburbs. The opportunity to meet and speak with the other guests is another treat and enriching part of the travel experience when you stay at a B&B of this high calibre. When I do return to Vancouver the West End Guest House will be my preferred and number one choice as far as accommodations are concerned. Evan and his staff are superb. Prepare to be delighted and beguiled by this delightful B&B!"
