We stayed there Friday night and had a wonderful continental breakfast the next morning. The room was comfortable, clean and charming. The Hosts were friendly. There is a beautiful castle within steps of their backdoor. We'd stay again.

I had a very mixed experience at the Craigmyle. It is in a very nice neighborhood, has reasonable rates, room was nice, home was nicely done and clean, and I enjoyed the breakfast. That said, I really wish the owners had given me a heads-up that my room was on the top floor, and that's not accounting for the steps... More

If one can experience 'homesickness' for a holiday B and B which one had just left yesterday then we have a serious case of it! :) Our cozy room on the top floor which looked out toward downtown Victoria was quiet, had lovely furnishings and a perfect bed. We loved the guest kitchen and fridge as well as being able... More

We're currently on the ferry returning to vancouver after staying at the craigmyle the previous two nights. We enjoyed wonderful warm hospitality in this charming location. It was a lovely home away from home. While we didn't meet the hosts, the innkeepers extended the warmest of welcomes. We throughly enjoyed the well prepared breakfasts.

We found this accommodation by a net search and were amused by the reference to Faulty Towers- no disappointment there. Check-in was painless, the room was as described on the sight and was one of the few that actually has a view of the castle. (If you have not toured the Castle and have any interest in history, architecture or... More

Thank you so much for your review! and confirming that we are not Faulty Towers. ;) Happy to hear you like our easy check-in and your room. You are so right, everyone should visit the Craigdarroch Castle. It's the most amazing structure and has unbelievable family story behind it. Plus, it's in our backyard!

We really loved our stay at The Craigmyle. It is a charming old B & B located in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. Our room was very small but cozy, and the bed was extremely comfortable, but the best part was the breathtaking view of the Craigdarroch Castle right from our window. We really appreciated the healthy and plentiful breakfast... More

We selected the Craigmyle partly because of the reasonable price -- it's almost impossible to find accommodations below $200/night during high season in Victoria -- and partly because of its sustainability policies (you wouldn't believe how many fancy-shmancy hotels we've stayed in that don't even bother to put a recycle bin in the room!). We enjoyed the homey ambiance of... More

Wow! Thank you for your review! We really appreciate your comments about the breakfast bar. We are making changes everyday and will take your comments about the hot food into consideration. Just because of the number of people we have for breakfast in July/August, on average 30/day, we opted for the breakfast bar. We are happy that you noticed our... More

Excellent hotel avec le charme en plus. Beaucoup de services comme l'acces à laveuse-sécheuse.

After my experience there, it’s hard to say enough bad things about The Craigmyle. I would encourage anyone considering staying there to think twice. I go on vacation to get away from my dumpy, run-down house, not to stay in someone else’s. This is an amateur operation in every way except the price. Arriving at The Craigmyle was a strange... More

The Craigmyle exceeded our expectations. We were met by Mireille upon arrival and immediately knew we were more than just another visiting couple. We enjoyed a recently renovated room; #105.
