We stayed a couple of nights and had a wonderful time. The room was beautifully appointed, clen and comfortable. It's in a lovely, historic part of Victoria, within walking distance of the main attractions but on a quiet side street. The couple who run this B&B are warm, friendly and helpful. The service was great and I would recommend it... More

We stayed just for on night but it was fabulous. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was just delicious the next morning. The two host were very kind and very helpful. We will definitely go again as it is the perfect place to stay during your time in Victoria, BC.

We were very pleased with this inn. The room we were in (the Zen room) was large but mainly due to an excessively large bathroom (as shown in their photos). The bed was OK, maybe not as comfy as some of the beds in larger hotels nowadays but good enough. There is no TV but I believe they advertised it... More

We were recommended Ambrosia B&B, and we weren't disappointed. We had the best nights sleep in this very peaceful B&B, it's a grand historic house, and when we arrived we were offered a glass of sherry! It's about a 5/10minute walk from the main roads, in the quiet residential streets of the Victoria.

We spent a couple of nights here in August and enjoyed our stay. Bob and Dawna have a lovely home and were wonderful hosts. The location of the B&B is fantastic - just a short walk to the park and also to downtown. We were glad to be so centrally located...the daily and nightly walks were the best part of... More

Ambrosia B &B is located centrally to the inner harbor area of Victoria in a quiet and safe area. I was travelling on my own and felt very safe walking around at all times. Beacon Hill park is just at the end of the street and is a lovely park to walk through down to the water and back around... More

My husband and I loved every minute of our time at Ambrosia, which was sadly only one night due to our tight traveling schedule. There was nothing we could think of that could have made our stay better. Bob and Dawna are incredibly helpful, thoughtful, and approachable - and not in that creepy bed and breakfast sort of way that... More

We stayed the week before the Memorial Day Holiday and I can't say much for the weather, wet, cold and my wife and I being from sunny California but the hospitality of Bob and Dawna was outstanding. My litmus test is my sense of humor, we stayed in the Zen Room for 2 nights but had to move due to... More

We had a great experience at Ambrosia Bed and Breakfast! Our room, the Isis room was stunning, we had a hard time leaving it to go out and explore downtown Victoria. Our favourite part was a built in jacuzzi in the bathroom! The 3 course breakfast was delicious and the perfect start to a very special day. Both my partner... More

Brilliant location in Victoria - 1 block to Beacon Hill park, 2 blocks to Downtown and restaurants, 3 blocks to Cook St Village. We were delighted with the place. Breakfast was three courses and top notch every morning - almost silver service! We stayed in the smallest room, which was still spacious, clean, romantic and inviting. Classy decor, all amenities...
