We stayed in the John Lewis House for three nights and totally enjoyed our stay with Becky and Bob. They make you feel welcome from the first minute you arrive. The rooms are on the upper floor and both have a private bathroom. Both, the room and the bathroom, were very clean. The bed is comfortable and although the rooms... More

This place is going to be hard to beat for the rest of our holiday. The location is excellent. Walking distance to parks, the water and downtown. The room & bed were superb. The washroom super clean. And the breakfasts... My goodness! There was no sacrifice on quality for quantity. Becky and Bob were fantastic hosts and have us plenty... More

We stayed for two nights at this lovingly restored house. It really is delightful in the traditional part of town, only 15 minutes walk from the harbor, slightly longer if you go through the park. Becky and Bob are great hosts and carried out an act of kindness for us. We had left our fleece jackets in our room. They... More

I stayed with Becky and Bob in June for 2 nights. It is a good location with an easy walk along Government St into downtown Victoria. My room was very comfortable and clean and great value. Whilst I had some amazing breakfasts during my holiday Becky's was my favourite including delicious fresh fruit, savoury crepe and wonderful fruit muffins to... More

We have nothing but good things to say about our stay. The room was excellent. The location is tremendous, as nearly every major attraction in Victoria is within easy walking distance. Places to eat are also close by - just chose the cuisine you like Not only do you get the flavor of BC life you get a taste of... More

The fresh flowers and fruit in your room are just a sign of the wonderful care that the owners take. We really appreciated their helpfulness and loved the big breakfasts! You will not find more delightful innkeepers!

Amazing B&B with a great atmosphere and very friendly hosts. Bob and Becky welcomed us to their home and treated us like old friends. The house is located in a quiet street a few minutes distance to the coast and walking distance to the city centre. They served us the best breakfast we had during our trip through Canada. Should...

This place is where it's at, unless you'd rather stay at some commercial you-know where on the beaten path. My husband and I love our children, but promptly left them with capable grandparents, at their suggestion, to take a long weekend in Victoria. Bob and Becky, clearly in their element as owners, ask you your interests upon arrival. Then, map... More

Becky and Bob make you feel right at home in their B&B. Much attention has been given to thoughtful details including a plush bed, thick towels, books to read, fresh flowers, fruit and chocolate in your room, robes for the bathroom two steps outside your bedroom, and a fine homemade breakfast served at a time you choose. The house is... More

I do love a good B & B and Victoria has some of the best. My recent stay at John Lewis House was further proof. Wonderful, friendly, accommodating hosts are absolutely essential and Bob and Becky were that and more. The house is lovely, has a great location just mins walk from Cook St. Village, Beacon Hill Park and downtown... More
