Brian and Virginia offer a superb experience supported by their 'mentor' Christine. Without doubt Virginia presents the most memorable breakfasts in the most gracious surroundings and Brian brings fun and entertainment! A fantastic team and a brilliant business concept. Thank you for a brilliant experience!

This is a mixed review. The common areas of the house and the grounds I'd say were excellent; however, the room we booked, "Sweet Tibby's" was only average and in need of some repair. -- We stayed 3 nights at ThistleDown before our Alaska cruise. Even though the location is outside Vancouver the drive into the city only took about... More

Ditto on what others have already said. Liz has incredible culinary imagination that made our breakfast experience delightful. The only thing that surpasses her and Brian's graciousness was the company we met during our three day stay. While we thought we'd be out the door by 9 for sightseeing, we found ourselves still talking to our new friends from the... More

My wife & I stayed at Thistle Down House for 3 nights in May & from the moment we arrived when we were warmly greeted by Liz we knew our stay would be perfect. Thistle Down House is a peaceful oasis, the house is so beautiful & the rooms superb. We chose Mulberry Peek which was beautifully appointed with a... More

My three friends and I were very lucky to find The Thistledown, we were lost in Van north and found a very warm welcome and helpful advice from Lyn the manager. We also stayed the night before venturing into the city. It was bliss, very comfortable and spacious rooms, delicious food and attentive service, many thanks.

Thistledown House is beautifully appointed and has a welcoming staff. We appreciated the prime location within walking distance of the Capillano Suspension Bridge and just down the hill from Grouse Mountain. We were also just twenty minutes from Horseshoe Bay and the ferry terminals. The rooms really are lovely and the gardens are in the process of being improved but... More

Liz was so helpful in making our reservations. Brian and Virginia were the perfect hosts. They were attentive and very interested in talking to their guests. Brian helped us plan our daytrips. Virginia made very unique breakfasts that all the guests raved over. Such a decadent treat and the presentation was beautiful. The rooms were lovely and the gardens very... More

We have stayed at Thistledown House on several occasions and in almost every room. We have NEVER been disappointed! Rex and Ruth feel like family, better than family really because they are always calm, peaceful and provide the perfect getaway from the drama and business of life. I wish I could rate the food here as it is INCREDIBLE! Rex... More

Here's a peaceful oasis in a big city. Just a short drive from downtown Vancouver, my wife and I were up from Seattle wanting a restful option to welcome my parents from Australia. Wow, did we make a great decision. This is one of those rare B&B's where you walk in the front door and you know you're in for... More
