“One of the best B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2012

This has to be one of the best B&B we have stayed in. The B&B is located in a quite area yet only a short walk to a great choice for evening meals. Downtown bus (number 20) is only a very short distance from B&B.
The B&B is spacious, clean and you can see the effort of the owners in making your stay special.
The room has all you need and is free of the clutter and those annoying unnecessary cushions, which you don’t know where to put, that you can experience with some B&B’s. The room has a fridge with soft drinks and chocolate bars; there are also cookies on your bed when you return each day along with the breakfast menu.
The breakfast is 5* and would leave many top hotels in the shade for both taste and presentation. It must take hours to do and has the woe factor. Leave the diet until you get home!
To sum up there are no corners left unturned to ensure all your requirements are meet and you as quest are left felling special.

When I think of the Bee & Thistle I think of WOW.....we were totally and utterly amazed at the beautiful and tasteful decoration and the attention to detail and friendly atmosphere. We booked Florences Room which was just gorgeous and overlooked a lovely garden at the rear of the property. It was spotlessly clean and and bathroom was fabulous with a tub,and walk in shower. Each evening we came home to the menu for breakfast the following day and this also gave you the names of your fellow guests (a lovely touch) and also the most yummy homemade cookies too. You may be thinking a menu for breakfast? Each morning the homecooked 3 course breakfast was different and really set you up for the day with the most exquisite presentaton. The location of the B&B just off Commercial Drive was great. There are numerous restaurants to choose from (check out Lynn & Michaels blog on their visits to local restaurants) and it is so easy to get into the centre of Vancouver (either the SkyTrain, 10min walk up Commercial Drive or the 20 Bus, which stops at the end of the street). We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and Lynn & Michael left us a bottle of wine in our room and a card, it brought tears to my eyes we were totally overwhelmed by their thoughtfulness. I would thoroughly recommend you stay at the Bee & Thistle if you want luxurious surroundings, very friendly service and great location.....give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose Florence's Room as it is nice and quiet and over looks the beautiful rear garden.

The Bee and Thistle is a real find and like visiting the home of old friends. Lynn and Michael are so warm and welcoming and couldn't do enough to make our stay in Vancouver absolutely perfect. Their lovely home is stylish and comfortable and we loved all the little 'extras' such as delicious homemade cookies every day, complimentary goodies in the fridge, personalised messages on the menu, access to washing and drying facilities and access to personal laptop & internet. The quality, size and presentation of Lynn's breakfasts were amazing and the location perfect to walk to a wide range of shops and restaurants. Thank you Lynn and Michael you are truly warm, caring and helpful hosts.

Beautifully fitted old house with perfect balance between preservation of the heritage style and every modern comfort. The best bed. The artistically presented breakfast tasted as delicious as it looked. Thank you Lynn and Michael. Five star hotels have nothing on this place. Charming.

We regularly stay near Commercial Drive, to visit our kids, and this is by far the best place to stay - beautiful remodel of old heritage home, spotless, comfortable rooms and beds, welcoming hosts, huge (maybe too huge) breakfasts, central location but far enough Drive to be quiet.
