I stayed here as an alternative to staying in a dorm room at UVIC. Not a hard choice is it really? Delightful property, with a great hostess and her staff. The breakfast's were a delight, with some excellent choices. Nice touch: They give you a takeaway muffin for the day. Appreciate that they offer to tidy up the room as... More

I was in Victoria for a week on business and am very glad that I stayed here instead of an impersonal hotel. The hostess and her staff couldn't do enough to make sure I was happy and comfortable. The ambience was great too. My room was absolutely charming but I also really enjoyed spending part of my evenings in the... More

We stayed two nights at this historical inn and thorough enjoyed the ambiance. It's located in a quiet treed neighbourhood a short walk to the waterfront. Breakfast was scrumptious and staff was most obliging and friendly. The lounge with tea/coffee readily available kept us comfortable during the evenings.

Last weekend was our second stay here. The Skater room with shower was our preference and it is next to the sunroom. The staff kept tea , cookies, and soft drinks stacked for our pleasure. The newly decorated chairs, couch, and huge tv were excellent. Flowers abounded in the gardens. Breakfast room with china and fresh flowers was so welcoming... More

Another excellent spring break. Oak Bay B&B is one of our favorite places to stay. Clean, quiet and close to all amenities. The muffins and coffee for the road every morning were very much appreciated.

We were met at the door of the Inn by the Innkeeper. A beautiful bright eyed Christmas spirit. She welcomed us and took us to our room and then decided she wanted us in a bigger private suite....The first room was fine and the second fabulous. All the rooms are named and decorated with Victorian elegance and each has its... More

Get away from the sameness of chain hotels and savour this thoughtfully appointed B&B. It is the best of both worlds with last century charm and modern conveniences. Decorated for Christmas like it is presently, it gave the impression of stepping back in time, in all the best ways. The sun room with its bar fridge, games, snacks, and books... More

Given that Victoria is being chopped up into smaller and smaller pieces, this B&B is truly the exception. One block away from the beach in Oak Bay, the location is ideal....quiet and away from the cit centre, but with amenities within easy walking distance. Local pubs nearby, walking along the ocean and virtually next door to Victoria's Golf course as... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Oak Bay Guest House. It is a beautiful 1912 character building with 11 guest rooms. Each room has it's own charm. We chose the Romance suite which was lovely. Our hosts, Mario and Nicole, were exceptional and made us feel right at home. The house has a large TV or reading lounge, complete... More
