The food was wonderful but we especially loved the care with which our hosts recommended restaurants and sightseeing in their Vancouver. The gardens were lovely. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable. We would definitely seek out Bee and Thistle for a future stay!

I cannot recommend the Bee and Thistle enough! Where do I start?! My family and I booked two rooms, the Lions Loft and the Ivy Room. Both rooms were beautiful, so quaint, clean and spacious. Both rooms had gorgeous fireplaces and access to balconies over looking an amazing view of Vancouver. Rooms are stocked with all the travel essentials you... More

We spent three nights in "Florence's Room" in late July, at the start of our journey in Canada. The room was beautifully appointed and furnished, and the hand-made soaps, beautiful cookies (delivered daily), coffee machine and fridge stocked with free snacks very much appreciated. Breakfast is plentiful and varied, with Lynn's fantastic scones and muffins the highlight for me. The... More

This was the first time my husband and I stayed at a B&B. It was delightful! The Bee & Thistle was very private. The room was beautiful with a comfy bed and a peek of Vancouver! It is within walking distance of several good restaurants. The food was as good to eat as it was pretty to look at. Our... More

We booked 'the B' for our honeymoon, and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Lynn and Michael were excellent hosts, and their breakfasts were delightful! The rooms were quaint and all necessities were accounted for. The location, right off 'the drive' is near bus stops, the skytrain, and, most importantly, the great vc foodie scene. If you have any...

This is a truly exceptional Bed and Breakfast. Lynn and Michael have managed to get it just right. A perfect balance between personal, homely touches and luxury. You can feel the love, care and attention that has gone into everything as soon as you walk through the door. I stayed in 'Molly's' room, which had all the features and amenities... More

Our staycation at the Bee & Thistle was perfect! It was very clean, comfortable and charming. The fresh cookies in our room were a tasty treat, and the breakfasts were equally delicious. It's steps away from the eclectic neighbourhood of Commercial Dr and is really easy to get to by transit. Lynn & Michael were so thoughtful and were such... More

The 'Bee and Thistle Guest House' is truly a gem in a peaceful and pretty area of Vancouver. Thanks to the owners' gracious hospitality we felt at home as soon as we stepped through the door. Their beautiful home is individually decorated combining modern elements with carefully chosen antiques reflecting Lynn's eye for detail and Michael's warm-hearted nature. Lynn is... More

We stated for 3 nights and had a very relaxing time. Mike and Lynn helped us each day with possible itineraries and fun spots. Lynn handled reservations for us on the whale watching tour. Seemed very above and beyond. The rooms were comfortable and great bathrooms as well. The breakfast was fresh and beautiful, with great muffins and fresh coffee.... More

We really loved this B&B and our stay in the Lions Loft Suite. It was quiet, spacious and spotless with a well appointed kitchen. The room had its own balcony with views of downtown and the well established community where it is located. The bed, linens and pillows provided a very restful nights sleep. The breakfast was wonderful. We had... More
