My friend and I spent two nights - one at the beginning and one at the end of our six-day trip to Vancouver Island. Kennedy House was a great choice. Clean, quiet, well-appointed. One of the few B&B's we found that offered twin beds for two people. Very nice private bath. We appreciated the proximity to the Old Quarter of... More

My boyfriend and I spent one night at the Kennedy House B&B. We were greeted with warmth and given access to our room right away. The house was clean and quiet. All the other guests super friendly. We were given towels and bath robes as well as slippers. They even put out wine glasses into the room, let us lock... More

A friend and I stayed at the Kennedy House B&B for one night. This is a beautiful Victorian house on a quiet street. Our host was very accommodating and gave a a small but well furnish room to stay in, including soft beds, a Keurig coffee and tea maker and TV DVD. We spent the evening on the porch reading... More

We enjoyed our stay in that house very much since this is a very nice place. We stayed in many B&B since we travelled many places in the world, but Kennedy House is definately one of my favourites! Thank you for your hospitality and the very good breakfast.

Had a wonderful stay at Kennedy House. The most comfortable beds and gourmet breakfasts. We stayed for a week and found the location to be superb: close to downtown, the waterfront and all the amenities of a tourist town. A wonderful 90 acre park is just a few blocks away. We’ll be back, for sure.n Judith and David are wonderful... More

We have stayed at this heritage b and b many times when visiting the island and have had no problems with the service or the charges.
