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

Thistledown House is an gorgeous B&B set in a beautifully appointed property. The food is incredible, the staff is absolutely wonderful. The property is quiet and tranquil, and we had a wonderful time in the living room sitting and visiting with people from all over. The breakfast is absolutely amazing. Our room had a decadent old style tub, but a... More

I wanted a special place to stay with my daughter for some bonding time. ThistleDown is an absolute dream! Beautiful inside and out, the 95 year old house and gardens were a pleasure to view. We stayed in the room Under the Apple Tree, with a sitting room and bubble jet tub. Very peaceful and quiet, with a view of... More

Stayed at the ThistleDown bed and Breakfast for our Anniversary. Our room was listed as Pages, beautiful room, remote controlled fireplace. Large comfy bed and spacious bathroom with a deep soaker tub. Wifi worked well and good parking space. Service was excellent. Breakfast was a three course fine dining meal. Owners were approachable but not intrusive. Manager Liz was also... More

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!

From the moment we stepped into the Thistledown House to the moment we left, our experience was amazing. We had the queen bedroom room with out own fireplace, is was beautiful. 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
