We absolutely loved this place! We likely will not visit Victoria often, but we wish we could. David is a wonderful attentive host, the room (Floral Suite) was lovely and comfortable with its own entrance. The breakfasts are (although I hate this cliche) to die for, and they are delivered to your room at the time of your choosing. The... More

Our stay in the charming Humboldt House began with a warm welcome as we were offered homemade cookies, chocolates and sherry. Our room (the Gazebo room) was spacious and clean. It included a sitting area with a working fireplace and Jacuzzi tub. We enjoyed a sweeping view of beautiful Victoria, where we were centrally located with harbor, museums & restaurants... More

This is a wonderfully/quaint bed and breakfast located about 3 blocks from the inner harbor area. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. The breakfast was delivered each day to our room in a basket, and clearly "made with love". The service was outstanding, and the owners went out of their way to do everything possible to make out...

The B&B itself is couples only territory but we rented the cottage for two nights .. what an amazing stay ! The team had stocked up the fridge to offer nice breakfast in the morning which was great. The cottage is spacious and lodges 5 people easily (3 bedrooms), also have a nice outside deck. Moreover, it is walking distance... More

Had an amazing night at Humboldt House in Victoria, BC. We had originally planned to stay somewhere else but at last minute it fell through. We went to visitors center and they recommended Humboldt House. Since we were booking last minute, David gave us a discount on room. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised!! A sunken tub with jacuzzi,... More

The breakfast delivered to the room was scrumptious. Homemade jam for the croissants, delightfully flavorful fruit, and the eggs benedict were perfect. It's located really close to downtown, so an easy walk, but far enough away to be quiet, in the middle of a residential area, and what seemed like a very old private school, St Ann's, I think it...

Stayed at the Inn for 1 night. Oriental Room has a Hugh comfortable bed but room Is looking a bit tired, and is in need of an update. Lack of stading shower a downside as one has to take a bath in a huge Jacuzi bath which in my opinion is a waste of water. Furniture in room although oriental... More
