My husband and I came to Vancouver last weekend for two days for a last-minute sightseeing trip. My husband comes to Vancouver often for work and stays in larger hotels in the city, but I wanted something with a little more ambience. We could not have been more pleased with our time at the Bee and Thistle. Everything written in previous reviews about the food is true - amazingly presented and wonderful to eat. Lynn and Michael obviously love to cook and take great pride in the food they present. We stayed in the Ivy room, which was very comfortable and had everything to suit our needs. The Commercial District, where the Inn is located, has several nice restaurants and quaint shops and is an easy 5-10 minute drive from downtown.
Frankly, what makes this place truly worth staying at are Lynn and Michael. They are an absolutely lovely couple. On our last morning, we stayed for over 1 1/2 after we were done eating just chatting with them. Their priority is that people staying with them are comfortable and have everything they need. It is obvious that they love with they are doing and I predict that their business will only increase as word gets around. We had no trouble booking last minute, just because we visited off-season, but I have a feeling that would not be the case during the peak season.
I can honestly say that it is an excellent value, given the quality of the breakfast, etc. I have already recommended this Inn to my friends and family, and we absolutely plan on coming back. Truly wonderful!
