My wife and I spent three wonderful days at ThistleDown House - a truly stunning B&B, and considering the lovely interior, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfasts (an understatement), and the warmth and knowledge of the amazing human beings that run it, the best buy in Vancouver!

Having a glass of wine in the winter garden room was such a relaxing experience. Our proprietors Liz and Rex were awesome. From a 3 course morning breakfast that... More

The house is a historical craftsman style which has evolved over the years. Our room "The Mulberry" was delightful with windows all around, featuring an en suite and... More

May be, one of the dogs came to see whether everything is... More

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

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!
