Perfect location to walk to many shops and restaurants, easy access to downtown Vancouver via public transit. Very welcoming and attentive hosts. They serve the best continental breakfast we have ever had. Recommend "The Bee and Thistle" for your stay in Vancouver and we look forward to our next visit.

Seldom do we write a review about a restaurant or a stay where our expectations were exceeded, but this one did. The facility was wonderfully fresh and clean, with exceptional amenities - in room laptop with wireless connection, flat screen TV with cable including music channels, and wonderfully comfortable bed. Hosts Michael and Lynn were most gracious down to the... More

Delightful weekend spent at The Bee & Thistle Inn. The staff is beyond amazing, especially Tory, who has an excellent talent to make a person feel like royalty. She accommodates in every way, always with a smile and a true cheery attitude. The Inn is delightful, well kept and quite pleasant. The holiday decorations were just beautiful. and show great...

We were interested in being in a gay-friendly area and after some internet research an area known as "the drive" seemed... More

We recently spent a couple of nights at the Bee & Thistle and it was an excellent choice. We stayed in the Ivy room. The bed was very comfortable and I didn't find the room noisy even though we were on the street side. The bathroom was very nicely appointed and we appreciated the complimentary snacks and drinks that were... More

We just spent 2 lovely nights at this beautiful and charming bed and breakfast. Comfortable beds, delicious breakfast(bring an appetite) and great amenities. This establishment was clean and inviting. I would both stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Vancouver. Just off "the drive" it is a true gem.

I was in Vancouver for 5 nights to attend a Maiwa workshop. My room was clean and comfortable. I loved the heated floor in the bathroom. The best part of my stay at the Bee and Thistle was the warm hospitality extended to me by my hosts. Lynn and Michael were away but Cheryl and Haigan were wonderful. Thank you... More

We had a couple of nights at the Bee and Thistle ( Ivy's Room) at the start of our trip in September and four nights in mid October ( Lion's Loft) on our way home. It was everything you could wish for and our hosts, Lynn, Michael, Cheryl and Haigan couldn't do enough for us. A short walk down to... More
