I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts over the years. None bring together Joan's many qualities. The house is a historical treasure. The decor is tasteful and elegant, all the way from the garden to each spacious bedroom in the majestic house. No compromise has been made with comfort. I particularly appreciate the plush comfortable beds and great quality... More

My husband and I stayed here on the recommendation of a friend of Joan's. We were uncomforable returning late at night as everyone appeared to be sleeping. We were disconcerted by the lack of locks on the door, TV, and telephone. The house is lovely and we were given the "grand tour". The breakfast while well presented was not to... More

Staying with Joan was a very pleasant experience, so much so that we changed our plans to stay longer. Excellent rooms and decor and the hostess was the icing on the cake. Will be planning a trip back just for a little escape from our Saskatchewan winter in very near future. Close to down town and easy to navigate around... More

Joan is a wonderful hostess, a great cook, and a lot of fun. This is my favourite place to stay in Victoria. Joan's mansion ( called " The Priory" ) is in the historical Rockland neighborhood a few steps away from Government House, the Governor General's official residence. If you are at all interested in local history, or just want... More

My wife and I recently travelled to Vancouver Island and had the good fortune to book a room at Joan Brown's Bed and Breakfast in Victoria. The house was magnificent, the rates reasonable, the room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast plentiful and delicious. But visiting with Joan was our highlight! This delightful woman regaled us with stories for hours.... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Joan’s this past October. It is a grand home beautifully decorated and full of charm. The rooms are comfortable and the food and atmosphere is superb. The experience made us feel like we were truly getting away. The B&B is located near Government House and within walking distance of downtown. Joan is a... More

The most fun ever in a B and B! Joan is as much a treasure as her magnificent Edwardian home. The perfect location, in a beautiful neighbourhood close to downtown filled with gorgeous old stately homes. Quiet, clean, super comfy bed. I had a room fit for a princess. She made the weekend truly memorable. I can't wait to return... More

Great value in a wonderful location for walking, visiting tourist attractions and getting downtown. This heritage home is full of antiques and fresh flowers and wonderful architecture, including a lovely sitting room off the dining room with beautiful... More

Visiting Joan Brown's is like coming back home. A warm and elegant bed and breakfast that makes "old fashion" a virtue. Not only is the b&b in a wonderful old mansion in a quiet residential neighborhood but Joan Brown is a mixture of your favorite aunt and your best friend. Whenever we hear of someone visiting Victoria we insist they... More
