We stayed two nights in this beautiful B&B. We got a very warm welcome and Sue took her time to show us all the places to visit or eat at to make the best out of our short stay in Victoria. Our room was cosy, spacious and clean and we had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the beautiful view... More

This place is truly a 'home away from home'. Sue and Zen are warm and welcoming. Sue's gourmet breakfasts are delicious and beautifully presented. Lots of privacy and you may come and go as you please as you have a key for both your room and the front door. I stayed in the wonderful Kingfisher suite with a huge 2-person... More

This is a great B&B. Comfortable, clean rooms, great hosts, and amazing breakfasts. Just 2 mins walk is the ferry to town and its only 40 mins walk back around the harbour. Sue and Zen were very helpful with directions and restaurants. The breakfasts were quite different to what we are used to but that appears to be the norm... More

As soon as we arrived at Across the Harbour we knew we had hit the jackpot. Zen & Rundle welcomed us and showed us to our room as Sue was busy welcoming other guests. The room was gorgeous, well set up (lounge area, bed and huge bathroom) and as a treat Sue's home-made ginger cookies - delicious! Sue then sat... More

This B&B, is the best that I ever visited. The rooms are great and very clean. The couple who manage it are out of this world, there is not a thing that will not do for you. The breakfast is a 5 star plus quality. If you want to be treated like royalty at a great price, this the place... More

This year we decided to visit Victoria on Vancouver Island as part of our week long vacation with friends. We were very pleased with the hospitality of our hosts, Sue and Zen, and how they made us feel at home. They attended to our every need and gave us inside tips on restaurants, attractions and fun things to do. We... More

Sue was a super nice hostess. Nice room. Great breakfast. Our room was adjacent to dining area. We spent a day hiking the Iron Mine Trail in East Sooke --- it leads down to an idyllic cove and rugged trails along the rocky coast.

We had a three night stay at the Across the Harbour in June. The location was fantastic as were the hosts. As the name suggests the B and B is on the other side of the harbour to the main part. However it is very easy crossing the harbour on water taxi's although we preferred the walkway that takes you... More
