Our accomodation was in a large house adjacent to the Spinnakers Pub. The room is best described as cosy but clean, but with a nice little balcony out front. Breakfast is served in the pub, with a nice terrace over looking the harbour. We watched the float planes come and go. The open-top bus tour stop is nearby, good for... More

Amazing staff, who went above and beyond in assisting us this weekend. There were problems with our reservation, but they fixed it and then some! And the accommodations are lovely - close to downtown and quiet!

We were looking for a quiet B&B in Victoria and the pilot on our water taxi tour mentioned Spinnakers when we told him we were looking for a one-of-a-kind Inn. We were hesitant to take a look, given it is a brew pub as well, but are so glad we did. Claire was great and showed us around. Our room... More

Small, cozy room well appointed with fireplace and antique furnishings. The steam shower is a nice bonus. Delightful small balcony porch perfect for a glass of wine. Just steps to the brew pub for meals. Breakfast was outstanding! Complimentary beer and truffle tasting was a fun addition.

I won an overnight stay for raising the most funds for the ovarian cancer walk in September. I was amazed at winning and even more amazed at the quality of this place. The brew pub food is local and beautifully presented, the location is spectacular and the room luxurious. The staff is friendly, respectful and helpful. They have a restaurant,... More

Our flight from Calgary was delayed by 2 hours so we arrived 15 minutes before the pub was due to close. The receptionist very kindly took our food order for us as we checked in to ensure our food would be cooked by the kitchen, which was closing down for the night. She then showed us to our room which... More

We had a lovely stay in the beautifully decorated room which was quite large and comfortable. I loved the antique furniture which was very cosy and elegant. The restaurant was fantastic and we all loved the complementary beer and truffles. The breakfast was delicious and included in the reasonable price. I would definately stay there again.

I've been to Victoria many times on business and I've been to Spinnakers for dinner and beers. But I'd never thought of staying here....I'm going to say that I just didn't know it existed. Now that I do, I'll be looking to stay here on subsequent visits. The accommodation is in a restored Victorian house that's virtually next door to... More
