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

We stayed at the John Lewis House and were very pleased with our choice. It was our first B&B experience and it could not have been better. The location of the charming house is ideal. It's a nice walk to the heart of Victoria. The house is decorated in a cozy style. Becky and Bob are friendly and very helpful.... More

The two lovely people who own the John Lewis B&B are a lovely English couple with impeccable standards. The rooms are warm, cosy and welcoming. The food is absolutely outstanding, the best B&B breakfast I've ever had with freshly made blueberry muffins, home-made granola, a cooked breakfast and an array of fresh fruit. The building is beautiful with a very... More

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

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!
