Very comfortable and clean room. They only have two rooms for rent, so you get personal service. The house is close to the park and shoreline walking path. It is also an easy walk to the harbor area and the city shopping area. Gourmet breakfast. Becky and Bob are wonderful hosts.

The John Lewis House B&B is located on the quiet end of Government Street, close to James Bay, yet just 15 minutes from the Empress Hotel, Parliament Buildings, and the Royal B.C. Museum. The street has a lovely, small town feel to it. My room was very comfy, and the bed wonderful. Becky and Bob had all sorts of information... More

We had a wonderful time staying in the John Lewis House. This charming old Victoria house is in a quiet neighborhood, only 10 – 15 minutes walk to downtown Victoria and 5 minutes walk to the coastal path and amazing views. Our room (upstairs) was cozy and comfortable with a bowl of fruits and chocolate in the room. The bathroom... More

The home was located near downtown Victoria and was a historical home featured on many carriage tours of the area. Our room was cozy and comfortable and our hosts prepared a delicious breakfast for us. We will definitely stay here again on our... More

Bob and Becky made our stay memorable. We were made too feel at home and they were very helpful from charging our toothbrushes to giving us local knowledge to make our stay one to remember. Best wishes. Brian and Jean

We stayed 4 days and 3 nights at the John Lewis House B&B. This was the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Bob and Becky were the most gracious hosts. They went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of, treated us like one of the family. Becky's breakfasts were the best and her... More

Welcome home. Of all the bed and breakfasts we've stayed in, this one had the most authentic feel. The simple charms that stood out for us: a bowl of fruit and snacks in the bedroom and a small vase of flowers, a plentiful home-cooked breakfast, homemade muffins for the road, and conversation worth sticking around for at the shared dining...

Spent three excellent nights at this charming, old Victoria home. Becky and Bob made me feel right at home as soon as I arrived and it felt like staying with friends. Great breakfast each morning kept me going all day and Becky's little fruit and chocolate bowl in the room was just the trick for a late night snack. Located... More

Superb location; lovely bed and room; great breakfasts (and muffins); lots of ideas about things to do; lent us maps; very comfy lounge with local papers; ad lib cups of tea, and most importantly, didn't poison my coeliac wife! Tea and coffee-making facilities would be appreciated by jet-lagged Brits.

I stayed at John Lewis House for 4 nights. The best thing about this B&B is Bob and Beckey's wonderful hospitality. I was an international traveller and it was my first time to visit Victoria. Bob and Beckey were very helpful to show me how to get around the town including the time table and connections of buses. Upon my... More
