My husband and I stayed at Humboldt for two nights during our travels around BC. I cannot praise this place enough. Really friendly hosts and I loved the quirky features - for example the port and biscuits in the sitting/reception room (delicious by the way). The room was lovely and absolutely spotless. The huge Jacuzzi bath and welcoming mini bottle... More

We stayed in the Mikado room, but next time I think we will go Windsorian. The entire experience was exceptional. Sherry and delicious homemade baking in the front parlour for socializing with other guests if you so choose. Local phone calls can be made here and there are directories of Victoria amenities if you need them. Our room was meticulously... More

We were greeted by an employee who pleasantly told us about the house and showed us to the Floral Suite. The overall experience at this bed and breakfast as great thought we only were able to stay for two nights. The hot breakfast delivered to our suite the first morning was outstanding. We both ordered different crepes which came with... 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.
