Spinnaker's has several buildings with rooms, so my comments relate to the room I stayed in and the B&B generally.
Overall, Spinnaker's is an above average B&B with nicely decorated rooms, below average location, with the added bonus of a good brewpub.
The B&B is situated in a commercial waterfront area, about 5-10 minute drive from the downtown waterfront area that everyone visits; it may be a 20 minute walk to downtown along the waterfront. There is nothing attractive around it, Spinnaker's is it.
We stayed in the Heritage Guesthouse. The furnishings are attractive and generally comfortable. The room is clean. No TV or Internet in room, but some might welcome that. I don't know how the other rooms are, but you'd describe ours as "cozy" or "cramped" depending on your size! Bathroom was roomy, however, with jacuzzi and "rainfall" style ceiling shower. Heritage House rooms/suites are set away from the water, and have no views to speak of, but we had an outside sitting area adjacent the driveway.
Staff is very friendly, but you should be aware that the same "frontdesk" staff supports the brewpub and bakery. The bakery shop, which is in the same building as the brewpub, is great. They have a computer guests can use to access the Internet.
The Brewpub may be the highlight of staying there. It's two doors down, with great harbor views upstairs. They craft brew 8 or more of their own beers, and it was fun sampling them all while slurping down fresh local oysters. Victoria closes it's doors early, so Spinnakers made for a nice place to wind down after a day whalewatching or walking around Butchart Gardens.
