Spinnakers upgraded us from a guesthouse room to the cottage (perhaps because I made my reservation 9 months in advance). We loved the cottage and could have stayed there longer than the five nights we had. The cottage was a small bungalow (1930s?) with a living room, bedroom, and remodeled bathroom and kitchen. The deck overlooked a beautiful yard with roses, fruit trees, vegetable garden, and bee hive. One afternoon, when we were relaxing on the deck, the chef came by to pick herbs. She said she was learning to be a bee keeper and the hive was just getting established. (The bees did not bother us at all.)
Spinnakers Brewpub runs the guesthouses and cottage, as well as making exceptionally good beers, baked goods, and chocolates. Every morning, someone from the pub brought our breakfast in a basket at the time we requested it. The baked goods, fresh fruit, and juice were delicious. After sight seeing during the day, we loved coming back to our cottage to freshen up, relax, and then walk down the garden path to the pub for dinner. The menu was varied and everything prepared well with fresh fish and locally grown vegetables.
Since Spinnakers is on Victoria's inner harbor, we could walk on the path along the water and be in downtown Victoria in 15 minutes. I highly recommend this unique place to stay.
