“Wonderful place and hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2007

Everything that the other reviewers have said is true. Ann and Ned are very gracious and helped us plan our activities in Victoria. The bed is very comfortable, the food wonderful, and the location great. As was pointed out, this is not the location for downtown nightlife but it is the place for relaxation. We walked with one rolling suitcase from the ferry and it wasn't bad. Took a taxi back the next morning due to time restraints - very inexpensive at $6 for both of us. An example of their hospitality - my husband left his insulin in Seattle and we didn't realize it until we were off the ferry. When we asked Ned about pharmacies, he called the nearest one and made sure that they would give us the needed medication when we arrived. Wonderful, generous people. We will definitely stay here again!

Stayed July 2007

Heathergate House Bed and Breakfast in Victoria, BC Canada

The owners and on site hosts Ned and Ann have perfected the Bed and Breakfast experience. Upon arrival we were greeted with home made cookies and tea. We had a room with a king bed, down comforter and in room bath that was spacious and charming. The breakfast was made fresh every morning with your choice of either a full English breakfast or the breakfast of the day which offered pecan waffles, blueberry muffins or scones. The buffet was set with silver serving pieces and offered home made jam, granola, fresh fruit and more. They served both coffee and tea and home made cookies were kept in a jar for snacking any time of day.
The location was perfect, only 2 blocks to the harbor or to public transportation. My husband walked to downtown early every morning (while I slept in). Ned made all the arraignments for our sight seeing every day. This was a great help! We did not have to do a thing, just enjoy ourselves.
Victoria is beautiful and there is plenty to do, whale watching tours, Butchart Gardens (a must see) and lots of golf courses.
The temperature is mild and the scenery is gorgeous. Victoria is easily reached by Ferry from Seattle or Vancouver and is great for a day trip or a week. We loved it and hope to return. NK

We read the previous review and though it too good to be true.
But it was actually spot on. We, too, were greeted with an English style afternoon tea with those great home-made cookies. Just one word of caution - as the previous reviewer mentioned Heathergate is situated a "short walking distance from the harbour". That is OK once settled in but don't try walking there with a couple of suitcases as we did - get a taxi. Yes, Ann and Ned are perfect hosts, breakfasts are very good with plenty of variety. Their local knowledge was most helpful. Our room was just by the main entrance with its own little patio with table and chairs. The room itself was delightful with its flowery wallpaper and very comfortable bed. We would have no hesitation in strongly recommending Heathergate House.
No good for lively night life and discoes etc but I rather think that those type of holidaymakers are not likely to go for a B&B in a residential street.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised with such wonderful hospitality by the couple that own this B&B. Upon checking in we were greeted with home-made chocolate chip cookies and wonderful ice tea in their garden patio. Every morning we were treated to our choice of 3 different wonderful breakfast options. Ned and Ann were so helpful with dinner & visitor suggestions. They also let us borrow a blanket for 2 picnics we took. This English-styled B&B was a short walking distance away from Victoria's beautiful Inner Harbor, yet it was located on a nice quiet, residential street. We loved this place and would love to go back again. We've never experienced hospitality like this before.
