Thank you to Lynn and Michael for a great stay! I spent four nights in the beautiful Florence Room. The bed was comfortable, the bath luxurious and the Guest House itself is beautiful. Each morning I was treated to fresh baked goods (made to accommodate my dairy intolerance), home made granola, fresh fruit, hard boiled egg, juice, and tea or... More

We stayed in the Lions Loft which was spacious and comfortable. The Bee & Thistle is in a convenient location in a nice side road and would be perfect if you were to hire a car to get around. However the bus route into Vancouver from this location travels along Commercial Drive and though some of the very poorest parts... More

We had 4 lovely days at the Bee & Thistle. Our hosts Lyn and Michael were attentive and thoughtful, offering great sightseeing suggestions. Breakfasts were delicious with guests receiving a personalized sheet each day which welcomed new guests, gave you tomorrow's breakfast menu and included the weather forecast. Would highly recommend. The Molly room was lovely with a beautiful little... More

We stayed in the Lions Den at the end of September for 6 nights and enjoyed wonderful hospitality from Lynn and Michael. The bed was comfortable and the room had everything you need, including surprise baked goods with our coffee daily! The breakfasts are delicious and well presented (don't stay here on a diet!). We strolled to the train station... More

excellent king size bed in a quiet location a short distance from down town. So glad we chose this B&B and weren't staying down town, where we saw our first down and outs and some no go areas. Great breakfasts, helpful hosts and very comfortable rooms with all the amenities we required. Excellent restaurants that were close by and as... More

This property certainly deserves the #1 title of the best B&B in Vancouver. We spent two nights in the Florence room last week, having admired the property online for over 12 months. We were not disappointed. Lynn and Michael run a very well organised and welcoming guesthouse. The location is convenient for access to downtown and the airport, has many... More

We enjoyed our 2-night stay at the Bee and Thistle tremendously! The rooms were cozy and clean, and the bed was heavenly to sleep on. Our hosts, Lynn and Michael, were so pleasant and helpful. The breakfasts were tasty with homemade scones and muffins. The Bee and Thistle is close to public transportation so you can get downtown Vancouver very... More

The location is great! It's within walking distance, 2 minutes, from a range of wonderful restaurants and shops, and about a half an hour drive to... More
