Only 3.8 km from downtown, the Bee & Thistle is located in the Commercial Drive neighborhood―the “Drive”―a destination neighborhood for great food, art studios, theatre & music venues, charming coffee shops & award winning craft breweries.  City center is approximately 6 to 10 minutes by car―around $12 for a taxi―or 20 to 30 minutes by public transit.

Michael & Lynn

During your stay you will be pampered with a warm, friendly atmosphere that many of our guests say feels “just like home”, luxury linens, fluffy white towels, tea/coffee & delicious home made cookies, a refrigerator in every room stocked with snacks, and much more. Although we don’t offer breakfast, we are located so close to all the wonderful restaurants on Commercial Drive that it’s fun to go out and explore the neighborhood in search of your favorite breakfast.
