My bride and I were looking for a place to enjoy the first days of our marriage, in other words, to honeymoon. We wanted to have a place that would be romantic, quiet, and close to fun attractions that we could go and enjoy. The Humboldt House is a perfect place and we are so glad we found it. David... More

The other reviews are right: this is a great place to stay, only a few blocks from the inner harbour. David, the innkeeper, really knows how to please his guests and run a good inn. I stayed for two nights in Edward’s room, which has a jacuzzi tub, and a fireplace. Note: this tub may be difficult for some people... More

The Humboldt House is a beautifully restored, well-maintained Victorian decorated with antiques and period furnishings. It's in a very quiet location a few blocks from downtown and Beacon Hill Park. A delicious gourmet breakfast is delivered privately to each room, with a choice of three or four menu items and at your choice of time (within a window of an... More

Firstly, I was saddened to see a 'For Sale' sign out front. Hosts were lovely, gave us ideas on restaurants, and the truffles we ordered were the best we have ever eaten. Breakfasts were huge and perfect, as was our room. We stayed in the Edward Room at the front upstairs of the inn. Street noise was not a problem... More

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

We staying in the Celebration room, on arrival we were greeted at the door by a very friendly employee who gave us all the information we needed for our stay. 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.
