A wonderful B&B. As soon as our booking went through, the hostess got in contact with us by e-mail and made us feel welcome, so we started to look forward to our stay long before we arrived. Cassandra is a very accommodating and understanding hostess - we had booked for three persons, but our daughter ended up spending time at... More

I recently stayed one night and chose this B and B because of the location to the Queen Margaret School, on advice from locals. The bed was comfortable, the house warm. I loved the Christmas decorations and enjoyed chatting to Cassandra and the breakfast. Duncan has a limited range of accomodation and I would recommend the Holmesdale Bed and Breakfast.

Went to Island Folk Festival held in Providence Farm, July 24-27 2015. A 10 minute drive from Holmesdale House B&B. Even though we arrived earlier than the appointed arrival hour, Casandra accommodated our early arrival request. This allowed us to have a long rest before the start of the Festival. Our room was on the first floor and the room... More

This was a very comfortable, peaceful B & B in the Cowican Valley, BC. The Hostess was personable and welcoming. She accommodated us with an early check-in without any displeasure. The house is an 1880's Victorian which has been tastefully preserved. Our room was very comfortable with a queen bed and spacious ensuite. A very comfortable stay. Delicious pancakes and... More

My family and I stayed at this wonderful B&B for one night while attending a wedding over the weekend, and had a very nice stay. Our room was large and had an adjoining room with a single bed which was perfect for our preschool aged daughter who loved "her room". Cassandra was very kind and accommodating and made us a...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. It is really appreciated. And thank you for mentioning the potential issues for someone with mobility concerns. We do clearly indicate on our website that as this house was built in 1881, there is no way to make it handy-capped accessible. However, it has happened that a guest... More

This is a beautiful old house - the oldest in the Duncan area, that has been converted to a B&B. Cassandra, the proprietor, keeps it in tiptop shape. She was always helpful and friendly. Like most old houses, there are some oddities. The door handle on our en suite bathroom was mounted so low we had to stoop to reach... More

My traveling companion and I stayed at Holmesdale House for several days in early fall. What a great, comfortable experience. Cassandra was a wonderful hostess, and the full hot breakfasts were divine. We have stayed in two other B&B establishments in BC, and Holmesdale House was by far the best. As avid Geocachers, we were in geo-heaven as well with... More
