We stayed here recently for two nights and can highly recommend this lovely B&B. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff were very welcoming. The Thistledown is in the perfect location if you want to visit the suspension bridge and Grouse mountain. The only downside we found was the breakfast! It was a set menu which none...

Stayed here for three nights recently because we wanted to explore North Vancouver before our Alaskan cruise. Construction and busy traffic on Capilano Road made finding the entrance in our rental car a little tricky. You will have to navigate steps to the porch/front door with your luggage. We stayed in the Under the Apple Tree room. It had a...

We were striggling to find accommodation in Vancouver and had almost given up when we came across the lisitng for ThistleDown House. We were immediately impressed just from the pictures in the listing and then we saw it was located in North Vancouver right next door to the Capilano suspension bridge which just sealed the deal immediately. ThistleDown is the...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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...
