We arrived by float plane and walked to Spinnakers. Could have taken a taxi but walking was totally doable. If you can walk 20 minutes of flat ground, you can stay here without a car. In summer the water taxis are fun and reduce some of the walking. Nice Quiet part of town. Friendly staff and Awesome food. My only... More

We actually came here for our (very small and private) wedding and it was absolutely perfect. The staff were wonderful, the room was beautiful and the food was AMAZING. We had dinner and breakfast here (not to mention the beer and truffles) and everything we tried was incredible. We couldn't have asked for better service or a better location or... More

This is a great little guesthouse! We stayed in the historic house room 4 and the room was a good size with a very comfortable bed. The included breakfast meant that you could order anything off of the menu, everything we tried was delicious! The staff were super friendly and the beer and truffle tasting were much appreciated! We will... More

We loved this gorgeous guest house just down from the pub. Its warm and welcoming yet a bit like going to an old family home. The open fire in the room was fabulous, and a really large bathroom. Bed was very comfy and it was good value. Staff were very nice. Breakfast was amazing! As were our dinner and drinks... More

Great location - a 10 minute walk gets you to downtown Victoria. Wonderful food, friendly staff. We didn't realize breakfast was included - you can't go wrong with anything on the menu - which made this an even better deal! My only criticism is that I hate showers with wrap-around curtains - because when the shower gets going they "wrap... More

Thank you so much for making our first time away from our children in a long time so special!!! Normally the heritage style of accommodation is not our style;however,this was so cozy and comfortable that it grew on us. The real fireplace was a wonderful addition as well as I have not had one since I was a child. The... More

I have stayed at the Guest House for 7 years now, approxmiately once per month. It is very comfortable, cozy, accessible to everything downtown and close to the ocean. The food at the restaurant is very, very good.

We stayed in Room 1 of the Heritage House at Spinnakers. It was clean and beautiful, full of charm and warmth. We loved the huge bathroom with the wonderful deep tub, the hardwood floors and the beautiful furniture. We truly felt spoiled as we were given a complimentary beer and truffle tasting at the pub as well as complimentary breakfast... More

We stayed in the guesthouse with the garden view and really enjoyed how quiet and private it was. The bedroom was clean and comfortable and the bed was quite comfortable as well. Our only complaint would be that the bathroom needed some serious updating. The shower head was positioned in a way that I actually sat down in the shower... More

My partner and I make sure to have dinner at Spinnakers whenever we're in Victoria, we've stayed twice now in their heritage house and both times were great! The rooms are cozy, the house is quiet and a short walk to the restaurant. Spinnakers has an incredible variety of beer and great cuisine, we've never had a meal we didn't... More
