In our room was a small bottle of champagne, fresh... More

As promised truffles and bubbles on arrival. I thought that would be the icing on the cake for my girlfriends 30th bday getaway but the best was yet to come. The breakfast served through the hatch into our private quarters that resembled a room from a james bond movie might just have clinched it. We selected the breakfast from the... More

We rented the cottage (this is not on the same property as the Humboldt House). Thoroughly enjoyed it. David, the innkeeper, was wonderful to us. It is a three bedroom, but one room is only suitable for a single person. Washer, dryer, fireplace, kitchen, etc. a lovely little property.

Sometimes you luck out with your B&B, and we sure did with the Humboldt House in Victoria, BC. First, the location is right there. Only a few blocks from Government Street, the waterfront, right near the Empress Hotel and the BC Museum. Also, the house has a secure parking area to the rear of the property, which we appreciated.

The Humboldt House is ideally located in close proximity to the seaplane port, bus station and downtown Victoria. David is a considerate, gracious, and friendly host, and he and his wife have set up their B&B so that you feel like you are in your own home away from home. Your room is your domain and it is set up... More

It was our first weekend away from the little one. The food was great, people wonderful. I was the perfect distance from down town. The only suggestions would be bigger tables in the room. When the food is delivered its a bit tight on those tiny tables.

What an lovely experience! Greeted warmly by David even though we were quite early. Shown in to the Library and offered some homemade cookies and Sherry (which you can help yourself to at any time), then shown up to our quaint room with a comfy queen sized bed, wood burning fireplace and beautiful built-in Jacuzzi tub surrounded by windows. Awaiting... More

Absolutely loved our stay here. We stayed in the Oriental room because we wanted a King sized bed. Was a little crowded due to the size of the bed but that was fine. Was super impressed with the in room couples massage we had and David was kind enough to accommodate us in one of the empty rooms since 2... More
