Growing up in Seattle, I've visited Vancouver a couple dozen times in my life, always staying at a downtown hotel. Looking for a change of pace to celebrate my 50th birthday, I found ThistleDown House and decided to book a couple nights for my wife and I. As my title says, no more Vancouver hotels for me. To say we... More

Although I'm not what I'd call a B&B person, this place is amazing. My spouse and I have stayed with Ruth & Rex about a half dozen times over in the past decade or so (I say "stayed with" as opposed to "stayed at" because you feel like an actual guest in a friend's home, not just a person renting...

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

Had the pleasure of staying at this amazing B&B for my birthday. We were greeted by Rex the owner who was very friendly and gave us a tour of his amazing house. 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

The whole house and the inner architecture of the rooms have a good balanced situation. You can see that many things have a history and if you ask, Ruth will tell You something about . . . and in the garden You have an protected Island of quietness.

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
