Ashby House Welcomes You

Heritage and Hospitality

Since 1986, Ashby House has provided a traditional, resident owner operated Bed & Breakfast experience.

Ashby House offers three rooms year round, and a fourth during the Summer. 

 Discounts apply during the Winter season and for singles, families with young children, returning guests and for stays of 7 days or more.

The 1899 Heritage house is situated in the heart of Vancouver’s West End, three blocks from transit on Robson or Davie Street, and a ten minute walk from the downtown Skytrain, (mysteriously, not in the sky but underground in the city centre) on the edge of Stanley Park.

Striving for a balance between comfort, hospitality and convenience Ashby House provides good food, central air conditioning, comfortable beds and the information you need to enjoy your visit to Vancouver.

Home: Welcome


Remember when life was simpler?

Ashby House Bed and Breakfast was started by Robin and Mary Anne in 1986, and before her death in 2022, they decided   Robin would carrying on in  the  style of a traditional B&B, with resident owner as host along with the world’s best housekeeper, Kelly. 


Ashby House was built in 1899, is heritage designated and has been lovingly restored by our family.


We provide comfortable rooms, excellent home cooking and over fifty years of Vancouver knowledge. All of our rooms have private bathrooms, central air conditioning and state of the art fibre-optic wifi.


Step back in time and see what life was like when our city was young. We encourage you to linger over breakfast, share your stories and meet the world.
