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

We started our road-trip with a couple of nights at this wonderful B&B. We were given lots of helpful information when we arrived; of places to eat, visit, and activities to do in Vancouver. 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

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...
