You can't go wrong with this property as it's one of the best B&Bs we've stayed at. From our arrival, we were greeted with hot tea and freshly baked cookies that we enjoyed in their gorgeous gardens. The room was lovely, and we received turn down service in the morning and before bed. Breakfast was truly gourmet -- we received... More

The highlight of our stay in Victoria was the stylish Villa Marco Polo. It's a beautiful house situated in a quiet area. It has a most splendid garden, beautiful to admire and wonderful to sit in. The owners and staff make you feel at home immediately and gave the most interesting tips to do in the neighbourhood. The B&B and... More

Beautiful rooms, lovely gardens, and attentive staff made this a wonderful break. The food was delicious and thoughtfully prepared and the coffee was very good. I would recommend this inn to couples especially those looking for a romantic break away.

All the rooms are tastefully decorated with an eclectic mix of items from around the world and feature ensuites -... More

We are celebrating out 25th anniversary this summer and I wanted to take my husband, who is not a keen traveller, somewhere he would feel comfortable. This man of few words and many strong opinions, was jaw droppingly content and can't wait to go back again. The Staff, the rooms, the grounds, the hospitality; impeccable. Thank you!

Living in Vancouver you are in a busy hectic place. Victoria is one of our getaway places where the atmosphere is quieter and calmer. We could not have stayed at a more calmer, quieter, beautiful place than the Villa Marco Polo during our weekend away. Even though it is right in the city, you feel as if you are in... More

We loved our stay here. The staff are great. Even though we booked a smaller room it was lovely, comfortable, and well maintained. They thought of everything you could possibly need. They have a separate library with loads of books and tea. There are several other rooms to enjoy, and the back is a breathtaking garden to stroll around or... More

Our last night on Vancouver island was both beautiful and relaxing that felt like a step back in time with the vintage and elegant decor. Special touches throughout, exceptional service with a healthy delicious breakfast left us wanting more time at the Inn. Would love to visit again.

This was a great honeymoon spot. Not only was the property and rooms beautiful but the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast was also some of the tastiest things we have ever eaten. We were so glad we went there and would highly recommend it to anyone.

This special place keeps getting better. The staff are wonderful and very helpful. The rooms are as if you've grown up there, so warm and welcoming. Reading the other reviews....this reviewer feels whatever is said will be redundant. In a word....Outstanding.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A leisurely game of bocce, a glass of amarone, a stroll past the reflecting pool of an Italian Renaissance garden, a massage in a romantic penthouse spa. Tuscany or Umbria perhaps? In fact, the exotic Villa Marco Polo, one of Victoria's most sumptuous inns, is located in Victoria's elegant Rockland quarter. This classically designed Victoria Inn, built in 1923 as a gift to a young bride, remains a favourite romantic getaway and wedding venue. ... more   less
