This property is no longer owned by Mountainside Luxury Resort since Nov 2011. New owners have made tremendous changes to revitalize the property into a clean and tidy boutique residence that provides peace and tranquility to those who look for total rejuvenation.

It was my first time to stay in a B&B with an unexpected level of quality like this, and now I begin to afraid that I can't find another B&B to exceed this one! It was the spectacular and relaxing view of the city, it was the homey and warm feeling of the lodging, it was the tranquility and peacefulness... More

We rented the entire home..thats right it is a house! We did get a really good deal, as in too good. We did arrive too early and we were willing to wait. The kitchen and grounds were at our use and we had a caterer doing the cooking for the entire weekend. The kitchen was filthy and the pool and... More

We are locals to Victoria, and stayed here for our wedding night. We had gone 8 months prior to our wedding to check it out, and must have hit them on a really good day that day, because it looked lovely, and was very close to our wedding reception venue. Being locals, we had many places to choose from, and... More

We stayed here having never been to Victoria before. It was OK. We called the place prior to booking and were told that it was close to downtown - it's not. When we arrived we assumed the person there would have some information about Victoria, she didnt even know the bus number that would take us downtown. At breakfast I... More

My husband and I had planned on staying here as part of our honeymoon in BC but changed our minds when we arrived at the property. Though the staff was very kind and understanding to us and the location itself is more of a very low 3 star hotel, I felt that other honeymooners should be aware of a few... More

My husband and I stayed at this resort in late May of this year. We were very dissapointed that both the pool and hot tub were broken for our romantic weekend and we did not find out until we got there, and we were offered no discount because of this. We stayed on the main floor by the breakfast area... More

I recently spent a long weekend at the Mountainside Luxury Resort. What a wonderful experience. It is a small bed and breakfast with very personal care, thanks to the house manager, Victoria. She ensured every detail of our stay was perfect. Mountainside is near the top of Mt. Tolmie and the view from my spacious private deck was amazing. I... More
