Coming from the UK, we're used to quirky old hotels, so it wasn't the period features which won us over at The Craigmyle. The room was small by North American standards, but it did include a massive bed, which was very comfy, and a good sized shower room. However, if you like creature comforts, such as in-room tea and coffee... More

If you expect TV, microwaves or fridges - go somewhere else! The Craigmyle experience is that of a lovely old house (I understand around 100 years old) in beautiful surroundings. Craigdarroch Castle is directly behind the house in a nice old neigborhood and very quiet. The bedrooms are nicely done and excellent for the price (continental breakfast included too!). A... More

It's more like hostel than and B&B.Not worth more than $80 a night. But, to be fair, the positives first. We asked to change rooms and were accommodated immediately. Shower head and water pressure were good. There were fresh berries each morning. The common rooms are beautifully decorated. Negatives: Garbage cans are kept on the front lawn to greet you... More

So sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay. We really wish that your experience would have been different. Tom and Paul happily upgraded your room to a suite with a refrigerator and view of the castle at no extra cost.

Stayed here three nights. Nice to be in a residential neighborhood. Easy 10 minute walk to two excellent restaurants, Cafe Brio and Stage. Bus access by Fort and Yates Street to wharf area so we never needed to move our vehicle. Great breakfast included with lodging. Quiet sitting room. Small kitchen area to fix snacks, keep things in fridge. Owners... More

Our recent stay at the Craigmyle was fantastic! It was so nice to arrive and not have the hassle of checking in by a certain time (we arrived around 11 pm) and to come in to a beautiful suite with an amazing view of the castle. We brought some wine and were able to watch tv, relax and enjoy what... More

We were disappointed from the moment the door opened. There was no-one there to greet us (not even a tea tray set out (after all, it is Victoria). They did mention stairs, but we had no idea we would have to climb up three long flights of stairs to get to our room (one outside)! The room was nicely decorated,... More

My 3 days in The Garden Suite was amazing. It is self contained with a kitchen,bedroom, sitting and eating area. Not to mention the private patio. All with a stellar view of Craigdarroch Castle. This is definately going to be my place to stay when I am in Victoria next time.

We stayed for 5 nights and loved the location. It is in a residential area, close to downtown, and only 10 minutes to walk to our daughter's home--which was a big reason why we chose The Craigmyle. The service was friendly, there was a nice dining area, a great kitchen for personal use, the continental breakfasts were very nice, and... More

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
