We came up from Seattle for New Years for a family event, my sister got us booked at 'Oak Bay Guest House' which is just around the corner from her. They know the couple that run it and thought we'd enjoy the atmosphere. The Guest House is very cozy, English style Inn that looks and feels very' English cottage' authentic... More

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

This charming B&B in Oak Bay is just the gateway to relaxing holiday. The friendly host family offers a huge variety in the tasty breakfast. The rooms are clean, affordable and personalized. This Victorian guesthouse is just the best deal when visiting the capital Victoria.

We stayed for 3 nights in August, 2013. We stayed in the Garden Room which had the private bathroom just down the hall. It was reasonably priced and the bathroom in the hall was no problem - we had our own key and were the only people using it so we could leave cosmetics etc. in the bathroom. The room... More

A wonderful old home about 20 minutes from downtown Victoria. Located in a nice neighborhood where we two women felt very safe taking our morning walk. The hosts were lovely and helpful, plenty of directions and ideas for places to dine etc. The breakfasts are delicious, varied, and creative. We stayed in the cozy Garden Room, apparently the only room... More
