We returned to ThistleDown six years after our first visit and, despite knowing what to expect from the house and the innkeepers, we were knocked-out once again by the quality, the service, the food and, most of all, the people responsible for it. We wouldn't stay anywhere else when in Greater Vancouver and we look forward to being back again - and this time it won't take anything like six years before we are.

My parents had an excellent stay at ThistleDown House. They say that each room is an artistic experience, with imaginative decorating which is a joy to explore. The triple-glazed windows made their room very quiet. Tea time was wonderful, and breakfast was a four-course meal which took them ten minutes to describe. Tosh also met with positive approval… an excellent reference from folks who are not dog-owners. In closing, they both agreed that there was not one aspect of their stay which could have been improved upon… the experience was wonderful!

We stayed a four-day weekend at this B&B and it was absolutely perfect. The couple that owns it was polite, kind and absolutely lovely. Breakfast every day was a fantastic gourmet experience, the rooms were spotless and beautifully appointed, the house and the grounds are gorgeous and peaceful. The house is withing walking distance of the Capilano Suspension Bridge and within easy driving distance of downtown Vancouver, the Lions Gate Bridge and Stanley Park. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would recommend this to any friend or family member, but it isn't really suitable for children, pets or the disabled.
