Nelson House B & B overlooks a quiet garden and Barclay Heritage Square. Our 3-story, 1907 character home has antique charm, fireplaces and stained glass balanced by personal decor that doesn't take itself too seriously. We offer five spacious guestrooms and a self-contained suite in a wide price range. All are comfortable, convenient and whimsically dedicated to the allure of world travel. Stay connected with free WIFI and cable flat-screen TV.
And relax! You are already where you want to be. We are a pleasant stroll to everything in downtown Vancouver: transit connections, the Convention Centre, Granville Island Market, Gastown, Yaletown, Chinatown, Stanley Park, beaches, the best clubs, restaurants and shopping.
In the manner of every classic “B&B”, we believe mornings are something to look forward to. Our full breakfasts are homestyle and healthy. For early risers, coffee, tea, juice & milk join a self-serve buffet of baked goods, cereal & fruits. Then, from 9 to 10:30 AM, we serve a hot entree that varies daily. Home baking, local and organic produce are our specialities. Most dietary needs can be met with prior advice.
The guest house is non-smoking. We co-host with “Zack”, our little Cairn Terrier. He visits the living room( to help with check-ins) by invitation only.
We do our best to maintain a clean, green B & B. Our high-efficiency gas furnace and state-of-the-art air filtration system removes allergens down to the size of the common virus. Not only is the house kept cosy, but the air circulating is actually cleaner than outside!
We give back. Nelson House B & B was the first bed and breakfast in Canada to partner with the Clean the World Foundation to recycle our used soaps in a world-wide program to save lives.
Top of the guesthouse is “Shangri-La”. This third-floor, open-concept suite is your own private and romantic getaway. Enjoy a relaxing lounge area with fireplace and 32" flat-screen cable, HDTV.
