Greystone Bed & Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 November 2011

Spent two nights here, traveling solo, last weekend in the Kitsilano room. The room itself and attached private bath meet all requirements for physical comfort, e.g., a great bed, adequate hot water, sufficient room (for two people). Breakfasts were delicious, including a hot dish (eggs Benedict one morning), several kinds of fresh fruit, baked goods, cereal, coffee, tea, and juice. What stood out most was a sense of camaraderie with the hosts and the other guests. Grant and Lee were most helpful in making plans to see local points of interest, find restaurants, etc. The wide-ranging discussions around the breakfast table with the other guests and Grant were a high point of my visit.

My wife and I stay here whenever we visit Vancouver. Our last visit was Nov. 19th, 2011. We find it very well located for getting around anywhere in Vancouver. The friendly atmosphere, happy hour by the fire and most gracious hosts Graham and Lee make you feel right at home. The breakfasts are absolutely the best we have had at a B&B anywhere. We are going back again soon and will never stay anywhere else. Recommend it to anyone. Thanks so much Graham and Lee for another wonderful visit.. Mike and Holly

My husband & I stayed at the Greystone B&B from November 11-14, 2011.
ARRIVAL: Not only did they accommodate our very late arrival (12:30AM) but there were fruit & cookies in the room when we got there. After a taxi ride from the airport ($27.00) we were greeted by Graham & shown to our room with no hassle no fuss - just welcoming & easy. Just what weary travellers want?
BREAKFAST: Fantastic hardly covers it. Graham had asked us the night before when we wanted breakfast & when we sat got to the table there was a selection of fresh fruit & berries, yoghurt & cereals along with juices, coffee & tea. After we settled in with that each morning, there was a hot entrée. On the 3 mornings we were there, we had blueberry pancakes, egg frittata & whole-wheat pancakes, with sausage/bacon & fruit decorations. Extremely good.
ACCOMMODATIONS: The pictures do not do the house justice. It is a beautiful old character home amongst several other character homes on tree lined streets. Just walking around the neighbourhood is a treat. Lush gardens & trees with beautiful architecture everywhere. Being from a very quiet rural area, my husband & I were impressed with how quiet it was. You would never know that you were in a large bustling city like Vancouver. The bedroom that we had was very tastefully furnished in a quaint teddy bear them (though not ridiculously so) with a small ensuite bathroom & a deck that lead to the back gardens. As we were there in the rainy season many of the plants were dormant, but the lushness & greenery were so wonderful. The little deck outside the patio doors was so inviting, even upon our arrival after midnight I still sat out there for a few minutes enjoying the peacefulness. I can only imagine what it would be like in the "non-rainy" season. The only SLIGHT issue we had was that the mattress was soft so you tended to slide to the middle! Though this is so minor, I feel foolish even mentioning it!
The breakfasts were served in the dining room on china & with silver bowls & pitchers. Not only did this feel decadent, but the attention to detail, all the whilst keeping within the character of the house & furnishings, shows an attention to detail that in bar none.
We did not partake in the "happy hour" wine & cheese as we were out touring so I cannot make comment on that.
The location was perfect for its beauty, as for proximity to amenities, as we had relatives pick us up & transport us everywhere, again I cannot make comment on that.
IN CLOSING: My husband & I are relative newcomers to the B&B experience, but are certainly sold on it now. You pay much the same as a hotel, but you get a fantastic breakfast on top of that so economically they make sense. Also, the home atmosphere of your rooms makes it more comfortable than a hotel.
We were worried about privacy though, do you really want to have to sit in a stranger's house & make awkward conversation when you are on holidays? That was a question we ( & I think most others) ask. The B&B proprietors very much take their cue from you, if you want to be chatty they will chat, if you don't, they leave you alone. And your room is very much your own, so privacy proves to not be an issue at all.
The "around the table" breakfasts though are wonderful; we met a couple from Australia & another from the USA & had wonderful conversations all 3 mornings, sharing experiences, etc. That is not something you get going down the hotel restaurant.
All in all, we highly recommend the B&B experience & in Vancouver, this will be the ONLY place we stay in the future.

My wife and I recently spent a week at Greystone while visiting her family in Vancouver. It was our second stay with Graham in his lovely house. Besides having very comfortable and charming accommodations including lavish breakfasts, we very much enjoyed morning conversations with an interesting assortment of other guests and our hosts. All in all, a very friendly and comfortable home away from home. I highly recommend.
Thank you,
