This B&B is absolutely fantastic. The breakfast is unbelievable. I had the eggs benedict both days we stayed there. We stayed in the gazebo suite and we spent a good amount of time in the room because it was so fantastic! It's also within a couple blocks of all the neighborhood amenities. If you like B&B's, this place is a... More

My wife and I stayed two nights in the Garden Suite at the Humboldt House. We had a great time. The room is recently renovated and nicely furnished. We loved the private back entrance, as it made it very easy to come and go. Breakfasts were delicious (our favorite was the eggs benedict), and David's Terrible Truffles were terrific; we... More

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
