Excellent position very close to the Museum of BC and centre of Victoria. Secure parking available close to the property. Very comfortable bed in the Superior Queen Suite and the accommodation is good but very open plan. Superb breakfast shared with other guests in first class surroundings. Lovely hosts with nothing too much trouble.

This B&B is just a short walk from the harbour in downtown Victoria on Vancouver Island. The couple who run this place are friendly, cheerful hosts. Our room was right at the top of the building and it was an enormous room. There is also a substantial balcony room at the back with a small fridge. I have never seen... More

Certainly not large or luxurious, but fine for a night or two.The hosts were very nice, the breakfasts ample and the location was... More

We stayed at the Robert Porter House during the Easter weekend. The B&B location is very close to the BC Museum, Government Buildings, and the downtown area where there are unique shops. The Beacon Hill Park is basically across the street. This is a very large park. Too bad we did not have time to explore. The Robert Porter House... More

Our hostess was extremely congenial, and accommodating in every way. Our suite, one of five, was very large and bright, and even had a washer/dryer set. The location was it's seller though! We easily walked every place we wanted to go.
