What a beautiful get-away ! Charming, classy, clean, non-intrusive, romantic, and peaceful. The breakfasts are first class and unlike anything you've ever had........guaranteed ! The accommodations are so comfortable and tasteful.......spacious rooms, large washrooms, crisp linens and a decor that is thematically appropriate to a by-gone era. But wait.........there's more !...........the staff are top notch and give you your space,... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Villa now three times and it just keeps getting better. Breakfasts are excellent and the house and gardens are lovely. We stayed 6 nights in the Zanzibar suite and loved every minute of it. Quiet street and close to downtown and Oak Bay. Can't wait to return.

A B&B-Place as you whant it to be. Beatutiful rooms, good service and really good breakfasts! The best with the breakfast were that it was four really delicious dishes but just enough food on each plate. Quality before quantity which I appreciate. Minus was not always working WIFI.

My husband and I exchanged our vows in the Villa Marco Polo gardens this past September. It was truly the most memorable day, filled with exquisite food, amazing staff and beautiful weather. We decided to stay 2 nights as it provided us with time to organize the day before, and we were given full reign of the house as we... More

My husband and I had long wanted to stay in the inn which our former Portland neighbor Eliza Bingham has owned and operated in Victoria for the past ten years, but the occasion for getting there didn't materialize until our twentieth anniversary this past August. Dunisia greeted us warmly at the door and during our stay did everything possible to... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights and truly loved it. We have stayed in many B&B's throughout the United States and Europe and certainly rate Villa Marco Polo ranks right up there with the best. It's located in a rather exclusive residential area a couple of miles from downtown. The room itself was very comfortable,... More

My wife and I spent three nights here on a three week fly-drive holiday to western Canada. The staff e-mailed me before we left England and advised me to book the ferry from Vancouver and not just turn up on the day (good advice as the ferries were crowded!). We had a very warm welcome from Diane. She showed us... More

We just stayed in the penthouse suite (Shiraz) of the Villa Marco Polo Inn (B&B). It had every comfort and was beautifully appointed. Located in a residential area with several other B&Bs just out of downtown, it was conveniently located with plenty of free parking on the street. The staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was an exceptional... More
