The Bee and Thistle Guest in Vancouver, B.C.

We have been away at our niece’s wedding in Vancouver, Canada and everything was spectacular from the wedding itself to the sushi, the scenery and our wonderful family to name a few things we enjoyed.

After an exhaustive search we decided to stay at The Bee and Thistle Guest House in downtown Vancouver.  It is located on 1842 Parker Street, Vancouver, B.C.  V5L 2K9 and their telephone # is (604) 669-0715.

This was an outstanding choice and we enjoyed our time there very much. Every detail had been meticulously attended to and we were delighted.  The queen bed was heaven with sheets of at least 1000 threads with 4 lovely fluffy pillows with the same soft linens.  It was one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in.  They do not do breakfast but there is a fridge in your room with water, pop and snacks of all kinds and every day there were two large home baked delicious cookies at the end of our bed which were a different flavor every day.

Our room had a fireplace and Shaw TV.

For breakfast we were very near Commercial Drive which had lots of lovely places for decaf lattes and delicious bagels with a variety of fillings.  There are other quaint places to eat and shop within walking distance.

The antique armoire contained not only hangers but also an ironing board and iron and 2 umbrellas.

The bathroom was beautifully appointed with every product you could possibly need including make-up remover wipes.

The shower had the wand and rain shower and the water pressure was wonderful.

We had a lovely view of the mountains from our bed and all in all were very happy with our selection of Molly’s Room and the rate was $191.40 CDN per night.

There were two other rooms on our floor, Florence and Ivy and we had a peek in and they both looked lovely too.

My husband noticed a plaque on the house saying it was one of the top ten guest houses in Canada in it’s day.
