Due to an error, made through an Expedia booking (their customer services still hasn't replied to us), we were double booked on a Saturday evening in September, so unable to stay here. We were helped to find alternative accommodation and Ruth was marvellous in her resolution of this problem. ThistleDown House looked amazing and we were sorry we didn't get... More

… you don’t need to feel sad if you’re one of the rest, but if you find yourselves in this part of the world and you want to see how to run a top and end destination B&B you should make your way over to Thistledown to enjoy the welcoming hospitality and comfortable home of Rex and Ruth.

We were lucky enough to stumble upon ThistleDown House and it turned out to be the perfect getaway to help us relax. The owners are very welcoming, helpful and all around great hosts. Using public transportation it takes around 20 minutes to make into the downtown area, so it's still pretty close to everything. We were able to see everything... More

We have just returned from a great stay at Thistledown House. This is a beautiful character house with very comfortable rooms. The hosts are amazing - so warm and friendly. The gormet breakfast is out of this world. We had a great time sitting around the breakfast table chatting with guests from all around the world. The location is perfect... More

Stunning rooms, exceptional breakfast and amenities. Absolutely worth every penny. Ruth treated my girlfriend and I like royalty. I have literally never had a better experience at any hotel or bed and breakfast. Cannot wait to come back!

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...
