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...

Centrally located in Oak Bay, this charming guest house has everything you need to feel warm and cozy and appreciated. Egle should be beatified for her wonderful generosity and kindness, and Lori holds the fort strong when Egle's away. Breakfasts are delicious. There is a beautiful upper common room overlooking the cherry trees, the beds are comfortable, and the Times... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Oak Bay Guest House while visiting family in Victoria. The Oak Bay neighbourhood is Victoria's prime residential area, quiet streets, big trees, manicured yards, safe & secure. It is convenient to downtown with the sights to see there. The Heritage home itself is true to it's roots in furnishings and decor but... More

We stayed at the Oak Bay Guesthouse over Christmas so we could be close to family gatherings a short walk away. We stayed in the Oriental Room - roomy, with separate sunroom with small fridge. The bed was really comfortable, and just outside our door was a cozy sitting room with inviting gas fireplace. The house is authentically preserved and... More

This lovely, traditional inn is located in a beautiful residential neighbourhood offering tranquility and an authentic Victoria experience. We stayed in the Regency room which was charming and comfortable. The bathrooms have traditional claw-foot baths and shower with curtains. Yes, you can find more modern amenities in other hotels, but then you would be missing the entire point of visiting... More

The Oak Bay Guest house is a great place to stay. With eleven rooms, parking, a garden and two sitting rooms for use by guests ,it is the sort of place one is happy to spend some time - not just sleep and set out again as soon as possible. Breakfast is ample and home made . The rooms are... More
