Spend 3 nights in this lovely b&b, in an interesting area of Vancouver. Nice Shops and dining close by. The hosts are very, very friendly and helpful. Rooms are all special, nicely decorated and with even nicer bathrooms. You get all the support needed, and more. Breakfast is more Continental and "on the sweet side", but where do you get... More

Wonderful stay! Nice room, tasty breakfast, welcoming hosts in a interesting neighborhood with lot's of restaurants nearby. A good place to stay if you want a quiet place to rest up after a long day of exploring Vancouver. We can definitely recommend this place.

Very homey feeling inn. Lynn and Michael went out of their way to suggest activities, help with planning and give guidance for using the excellent public transportation system. Delicious and aesthetically pleasing breakfasts each morning, serving trays artfully decorated with flowers from their garden and laden with exquisite home baked croissants, muffins, scones and local produce. Comfy room with everything... More

The whole experience was heavenly. Our room (Ivy) was tastefully furnished and decorated, as was the bathroom. Breakfast was plentiful and of a high standard and the fact that things were decorated with fresh flowers added to the feeling that here was a couple who took exceptional pride in everything. The local area provided many opportunities for dining or even... More

My wife and I stayed recently and this is one of the best bed and breakfast experiences we have had anywhere in the world. Lynn and Michael are excellent hosts, the room (we had the top floor one, which is self catering though we were eating out) was beautifully decorated and there were even free snacks and soft drinks liberally...

My partner and myself stayed at Lynn and Michael's B n B for 2 nites after arriving from New Zealand prior visiting Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Likewise we stayed 2 nites prior returning home at the end of our Canadian trip. We felt at home the moment we walked in the door and quickly went into holiday mode. Lynn and... More

This was our first true B&B experience and now the bar has been set high. We stayed for 2 night in the Lion Loft room. Loved it. The location was easy to get to by taxi and by bus from downtown. And it was nice to be able to walk only a few blocks for many restaurant options on Commercial... More

Lynn and Michael have done an incredibly job with making you feel at home. As soon as I entered the Bee & Thistle, I knew it would be a very comfortable and relaxing place to call home. I stayed in Molly's Room which was perfect for just myself. Bee & Thistle was just a block and a half away from... More

My husband and I LOVED our 3 night stay at The Bee and Thistle. Michael gave us great advice for our daily touring of the city and drive up to Whistler. The breakfasts are memorable. Fresh, delicious. And we were very comfortable in the Florence room with lovely bathroom to match. Would return in a heartbeat.

We stayed for 2 nights. The Bee & Thistle is located within walking distance to a vibrant cultural neighborhood, Commercial Drive. Known for some of the best restaurants in Vancouver. The Guest House is beautiful, comfortable and very well organized. The rooms are cozy and well appointed with all the amenities. We stayed in the Ivy Room with a king... More
