It has to be 5 stars all round - wonderful breakfast, comfortable beds with beautiful linen, huge towels and a great location and the added bonus of Rex who is a very interesting person. It is in a great location for all the sites in North Vancouver. I am into food and a fussy person when it comes to holidays... More

Four of us stayed at this BnB when we visited, with two of our travel companions saying this was their first BnB experience. We were greeted in the driveway by one of the sweet dogs who lives here. We met the other one shortly thereafter. We were then greeted inside and shown the house and the grounds. After getting settled,... More

This is a must if you travel to Vancouver. Beautiful home with very comfortable rooms. Moreover the staff is unbelievable. Ruth, Tex and Liz are so attentive. They serve a three course breakfast fit for a king and queen. Their other visitors are so interesting. Take some time in their lovely garden as well. These are wonderful people.

Staying at Thistledown was the best decision we made when we visited Vancouver. Ruth and Rex are the heart of Thistledown and every turn in the garden and every corner of their home tell the tale of their tender loving care. Thistledown is a couple of blocks away from public transportation, no need to bring a car. Terrific restaurants are... More

This was our first B&B experience and it was a wunderful experience thanks to the care and attention extended by Ruth, Rex & Liz. We were made to feel as though we were part of a family getting together after some time apart. Would I return if in Vancouver? YES. Would I recommend ThistleDown to friends and family members I...

Yes I agree with the hundreds of others you loved their stay here. The house and garden are quaint and lovely and the breakfast delicious. As mentioned in the subject line the noise from Capilano Road is evident. I cannot understand why there is some much traffic.

It's difficult to add meaningful words about ThistleDown House without being redundant, so read through the other reviews for more specifics. I endorse every 5 star comment. Rex and Ruth and Liz, as well, appear to love what they are doing. They each add their own personal flavor to the mix so that I can't imagine any addition that would... More

The hosts, Rex and Ruth, were genuinely welcoming. They were extremely informative about everything from places to visit for free to local restaurant choices. The building is historic with a beautifully planted garden full of flowers. The house is extremely well organised for guest needs e.g. residents 'fridge, honesty bar, etc. The rooms are spotless and well equipped. The highlight... More

Everything about this B and B is exceptional, from the warm and welcoming hosts to the beautiful and exquisitely furnished rooms and the spectacular three-course breakfasts. Ruth and Rex cultivated a wonderful atmosphere that led to several stimulating conversations with the other guests around the breakfast table (including a pair of newlyweds who had just spent their wedding night at...
