Great place to stay if you don’t mind sharing a bathroom! The host are very friendly and helpful. The place is very clean and a you won’t leave hungry, they serve a very big breakfast with lots of variety!
We stayed here as a family (myself, husband, 18-year-old son, 21-year-old daughter) and booked both beautiful rooms at the Grateful Bed B&B. We were Ted and Joyce's first booking after Covid-19 allowed for domestic travel in B.C. We're normally a family that loves to fly to exotic destinations, but decided 2020 was the year to get to know and appreciate our own backyard. From Vancouver, we had never travelled to Prince George, but this year incorporated it as one destination on our "get-to-know part of B.C." vacation. As I planned the holiday, I tried to find unique accommodations that would suit my family's wish list: welcoming, interesting, personal, spotless, and, well, maybe Canadian. The Grateful Bed definitely fit all these criteria. The two rooms and bathroom and private kitchen area are bright, welcoming, had a great decor, and are spotlessly clean. When we arrived, there was cake and a beautiful chilled pitcher of iced tea - most welcome on a very hot day. The breakfasts on both days were certainly the best I'd ever experienced in a B&B anywhere. My daughter is vegetarian and had so many options to choose from. Beautiful berries were part of each day's breakfast in the fruit salad. One day a vegetarian frittata, another pancakes. There were sausages, hash browns, Irish soda bread (everything homemade), jams and jellies... muffins... sure I'm forgetting something. And in case you were somehow hungry later, there were snacks in the fridge! The property has an impeccably-kept garden that was in full, radiant bloom for our visit at the end of July. Joyce and Ted are amazing hosts and were there to answer any question or concern we had. We loved Prince George, too. A fantastic community with tons to do - we checked out the rail and forest museum and the Ancient Forest one day, another day we visited beautiful Fort St. James. Prince George itself has so many parks! We found the locals super friendly and will definitely return. If Prince George is part of your next travel plan, I highly recommend the Grateful Bed B&B and its hosts, Ted and Joyce. I'm sure, as we found, it will be your "home away from home."…
This B&B is a gem. The welcome from Ted and Joyce is very warm, they are perfect hosts. After checking in we enjoyed a beer with Ted on the deck, swapping stories of the UK and Canadian music and sports scenes. It felt like staying in someone's home rather than a B&B. Whilst we went out for a walk Ted washed our filthy hire car without us asking. It was sparkling when we came back, in fact the whole place sparkles, it is spotlessly clean. Breakfast next morning was to die for and set us up for the long drive to Prince Rupert. We cannot speak highly enough of this B&B, truly excellent
Had a restful time at the Grateful BnB. Had such a great nights sleep that we woke up a couple hours earlier than expected. Everything felt very clean and crisp which we really appreciated. Breakfast was delicious and hearty which was a nice surprise as we were only expecting a continental meal it made for great value overall. Joyce and Ted were friendly and laid back people. As far as BnB’s go I don’t think these guys can be beat with their exceptional hospitality.
On an off road motorcycle trip from Vancouver to Anchorage, we had the chance to stop one night in the home of Joyce and Ted. Fans of 70's rock and Irish humor and spirit, you will be delighted. Joyce wil make you feel at ease with a glass of wine and her favorite game of guessing your age. If you think you look young, Joyce will leave you no hope. The breakfast filled us for an entire 500km of trails to Smithers: great home cooking. A great souvenir on our trip
