You cannot go wrong with staying at the Fairholme Manor. My husband and I enjoyed an elegant and regal stay from start to finish. Ross & Sylvia 'the hosts with the most' are gracefully professional and friendly. Welcoming and helpful. Very reliable in recommendations of restaurants that were all thoroughly enjoyed. These guys are all about class and style. The... More

So my girlfriend and I decided to do a weekend trip to Victoria for a quick girls' weekend. Usually I decide the hotel and have a tendency to go towards the 5 star hotels. A bed and breakfast has NEVER crossed my mind before, I always had an image in my mind about B &Bs that just didn't match my... More

We rented out the entire house last weekend for our family and got married in their beautiful garden. Everything was amazing: hospitality, charming accommodations, spectacular food, flowers, etc. Their passion and attention to detail left an impression on everyone. Thank you so much. See you next year at our anniversary!

We stayed 2 nights at this B&B this week and it was absolutely wonderful. Ross and Sylvia were fantastic hosts, very welcoming and so accommodating when we needed an early breakfast and late checkout. The room was spacious and the attention to detail was great, Fresh flowers everywhere and the breakfasts were delicious and substantial. We'll be back!!

Though we live in Victoria, my wife and I recently spend a couple of nights at Fairholme on a friend's recommendation to celebrate our wedding. We were both absolutely thrilled - the rooms (we stayed in two different ones) were beautiful, clean, and tasteful, with all we needed in terms of utensils, etc. and a gorgeous view. Beyond that, however,... More

The innkeepers, Sylvia and Ross, made us feel like we were at our own home. They treated us like family and were very attentive with suggestions, recommendations, and must see things in the area. Sylvia's breakfast dishes rank among the most delicious and creative offerings we have ever had. The jams, scones, and bread were beyond description in their taste,... More

Our four-night stay at the Fairholme was the perfect beginning to a month-long birthday celebration. Sylvia and Ross are wonderful hosts, easy going, full of information, helpful (including finding us a rental car on a moment's notice), warm and welcoming ... From our late arrival to our last breakfast. The rooms were clean, beautifully appointed, with every amenity, including Nespresso!... More

The Fairholme Manor Inn was a wonderful surprise, as my family came to Victoria, B.C., for the second time in two years -- the one-year anniversary of our mother's death. It was recommended to us by the Marco Polo Inn because they could not accommodate us, and we are very thankful that they did. On a peaceful street, adjacent to... More

The rooms are clean, spacious, well decorated. The garden is very well maintained, the breakfast is delicious and the area is so quiet that the birds and deer roaming quietly there. Owners Ross and Sylvia were very solicitous giving us the tourist information.

A big thank you to Sylvia and Ross for their outstanding hospitality whilst we stayed at Fairholme Manor. We were a group of 4, so 2 people stayed in the Rose Garden Suite and 2 stayed in the Olympic Grand Suite. Both the suites are stunning and have fantastic views of the ocean. The breakfast is superb and one of... More
