A beautiful 1920's bungalow with charm oozing from every corner. We stayed in the smallest room as we were very late with our reservation, but the room was delightful. Breakfast was a gourmet treat. Very accommodating and friendly staff which went out of their way to assist us.

In August last year my husband and I toured BC for 3 weeks, booking lots of hotels and B&Bs through online booking sites. Some were prepaid, some were not. Anyway, we just stayed one night at the Thistledown in a beautiful room, and had a lovely day there. We duly paid for our stay before leaving and that was it.... More

We were traveling as a party of four and picked Thistledown House in North Vancouver because of its locations away from the city yet within an easy drive to everything we wanted to see. When we drove up we were surprised to find that the B&B was located on a fairly busy street and had limited parking for a car... More

My husband, daughter and I spent 4 nights in the Pages room in mid-July. The location was perfect for us (we were attending a family wedding at the Cleveland Dam and Grouse Mountain), but it was also perfect for getting to Stanley park and English Bay. The hosts (Liz, Virginia, Brian and Judy) we extremely welcoming and accommodating. The house... More

Based on my clients recommendation, I booked a stay at Thistledown on this visit to Vancouver. Hospitality was top notch, and atmosphere is spa like escape relaxing, without the shushings. Fantastic selection of scotch, beautifully hand crafted meals, and a garden worth a picnic in. It's well situated in the most ideal location to be within reach of everywhere you... More

I always love staying in bed and breakfasts and this one is the best I have been to yet! Not only is the location beautiful and pretty easy to get to from down town Vancouver, but the hosts and accommodations are ahead of the game. The rooms are spacious and clean but cozy. There is a beautiful garden in the... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is lovely, the people are charming, the rooms are nice and the beds are comfortable. There are places to walk nearby and we found it very convenient as we were catching a ferry. There were major road works going on outside but they didn't disturb us even though we had a room...

Wow, what a warm and inviting experience. The house and gardens are beautiful. Breakfast was on china with a printed menu. Amazing. They do this daily! This B&B sets a new standard. The grounds are well lit and perfectly cared for, and the house is beautifully decorated. What a great way to start out our vacation!

Staying in a B&B is the best way to enjoy Vancouver, and this was the perfect place! From outside to in it is stunning. Our room was spacious but had a homey feel at the same time. I truly enjoyed all the decor and you could tell that they pay attention to detail. Added bonus of a beautiful garden in... More
