We stayed again at our favourite "B & B" in Victoria - 3 lovely days. Vanessa was there to greet us and a pot of coffee was put on. We stayed again in the Lavender Room that has a huge deck with an umbrella, table and chairs. The location on Oswego St. is quiet and at the same time, within walking distance of the Parliament Buildings, Royal B.C. Museum, Empress Hotel, Inner Harbour and Government shopping. The breakfasts are fit for a Kaiser and the company is always engaging. We have stayed at Gingerbread Cottage four times now and will definitely choose Vanessa's again.
