We were welcomed with warm smiles and a cozy clean room. We will definitely come again soon and tell all of our friends to do so too. The breakfast was fresh, creative and sustained us for the day. The location exposed us to a serene residential area with amazing marine views for our walks. Everyone we spoke to was friendly.

An old B&B, English styled with nice rooms. Breakfast was ok with toast, eggs and muffins. The people are nice too. Infortunatly it's far away from downtown Vivtoria. It can get hot during summernights, there is no airconditioning. We had a nice stay, but overall; I would not recommand it. But if you want a nice, relaxed and easy old... More

This B and B in Victoria is located in a beautiful location, a mere block from the ocean and just a short distance to Oak Bay Village. Our stay however, fell short of our expectations. Having stayed a few times in another B and B in Victoria that we enjoyed tremendously, this establishment could not compare. The owners / staff... More

We stayed in the Raphael room for three nights in July. The room was small but had an en suite bathroom. The breakfast each morning was delicious and the dining room accommodated quite a few guests. We walked to the Oak Bay Beach Hotel to have drinks and dinner in the evening . The neighborhood that the Oak Bay Guest... More

Another lovely and very British B&B Guesthouse in Victoria/ Vancouver Island. The Landlady is very open minded, helpful and offers awesome fresh made breakfast in the morning. We loved it. Parking places in front or in the back yard which is very nice for people who are traveling by car. Rooms incl. bathrooms very British and absolutely clean. And by... More

The Oak Bay Guest House is an old Victorian era boarding house converted to a B&B. Rooms such as ours, the Cottage, are quite small, and in need of some renovation. Again this room is directly across from the check-in desk and at times becomes quite noisy, but overall I would not consider the B&B to be noisy. Yes, the... More

We stayed in the Garden room, which is a small but nice room overlooking the lovely front gardens. Unfortunately, we missed the mention of the bathroom being "across the hall" (and 10 feet along the hallway); fortunately, bathrobes were provided! The bathroom had a good supply of toiletries, but the wall tiles are a most unpleasant shade of bright lemon... More

We stayed 1 night at this guest house in Oak Bay. There was on site parking, beautiful gardens & a great night's sleep in our suite. The breakfast next morning was excellent & we were delighted with 2 muffins to take-away with us. This is a nice area just outside of downtown Victoria, B.C. We had a great dinner at... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights with my husband and 2 adult children whilst visiting British Columbia. The Guest House is charming and with its décor and furnishings it feels just like stepping back in time. We stayed in the Club room whilst our children shared the Garden room, both rooms were cosy & warm. Breakfast on both mornings... More

This was my second stay at the Oak Bay Guest House and it was as good as the first. Lori greeted me pleasantly when I arrived and reminded me where the amenities were located - the dining room for breakfast, the hot drinks and cookies upstairs in the lounge etc. I was given the Raphael room which is on the...
