The buildings on the property are great - old and interesting and the grounds are beautiful. When you look closer, it's a little run-down and both the inside and outside could use some work.

I took my grandson to the England Inn. We had taken his father at about the same age 20 years ago. It now has new owners and some renovations. Some of the old village that use to be part of the complex is gone. However, we had a delightful time. The upgrades were tasteful and did not detract from the... More

The minute we arrived, we felt like we were in England, without spending 9 hours on a transatlantic flight. The splendid manor house, the spacious well kept grounds, including a replica of an Elizabethan street and the cosy, charming rooms make this place a perfect get-away. The knowledgeable staff are friendly and accommodating. After a restful sleep in a most... More

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights here. The building dates from 1906 and is a lovely old mansion. We had a large room with a sitting area. We appreciated the tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Continental breakfast was served downstairs in the light, airy and updated breakfast room overlooking the garden. The croissants were excellent.... More

First off, I have to say WOW, WOW, and WOW! What an incredible place to vacation at in Victoria! I have traveled all over the world and have had the opportunity to stay at 4-5 star resorts, many hotels, hostels, motels and bed/breakfasts. While staying at those locations, I rarely received excellent hospitality and I didn’t experience staff that happens... More

We stayed here for two night and had just a fabulous time. Room are cute up rickety stair cases but really cool, quaint and charming. Room was everything we needed and more. Liked the traditional tea pot and cups in our room. We are from England originally and so this truly felt like we were back home. Nice reading area... More

Our room was huge! Like "Whoa! I feel like a princess!" huge. The room was so comfortable that while his mom and I had a three hour tea at the Empress, my boyfriend and his dad opted to hang out in our room all afternoon. Even with all that time spent at the inn, we opted to stay in that... More

My wife and I stayed here just for 1 night as part of her birthday celebration. The main section consists of a beautiful old mansion which was well kept. We stayed in the Queen Anne Room which was very spacious and and had a nice king size bed and a divan. The room was a little cool and there was... More
