The reviews are in for Trip Advisor’s 2011 Travelers Choice best Canadian B&Bs and 6 of the top 10 are BC Bed & Breakfasts, and 4 of the top 10 are Guild Members. The hard working winners are ThistleDown House (North Vancouver), Abbeymoore Manor (Victoria), The West End Guest House (Vancouver) and Apple Blossom B&B (West Kelowna). Trip Advisor awards mean a lot to B&B innkeepers because they are based solely on guest reviews and cannot be bought or self-nominated. The fact that 40% of Canada’s top 10 voted Bed and Breakfasts are members of the British Columbia Bed and Breakfast Innkeepers Guild is a good indicator of the quality of our members and their dedication to providing guests with enjoyable and memorable stays.
Each B&B is unique. That is, for me,what makes staying at B&Bs particularly fun since I KNOW I can count on Guild members to be top quality in both accommodations and service and yet so very different in design, look and feel.
All BC Innkeepers members are also Tourism BC approved and many are also Canada Select rated. The most important thing about great B&Bs is simple: we innkeepers love what we do, so we do it very well.
Speaking of owners, hearty congratulations to the Innkeepers: Anne, Ian and Michelle at Abbeymoore Manor; Ruth and Rex at ThistleDown House; Evan and Ron at The West End Guest House and Jeanette and John (pictured) at Apple Blossom B&B!
Where ever you go in British Columbia you can “rest assured” your BC Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers Guild members will make your stay a special one.
