“Convenient for the Location ..but that's all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

We went there because we had to go 1 more week in UVIC and it was the closest.
it's really well located, short walk both to the beach and to UVIC
BUT
we took the most expensive "suite" and still it's only one room in a garage of the house.
it's more a guest house, since you can't get breakfast in low season, and even if you want to, you have to pay.
The room is quite small and basic. Even if there is the equipment necessary, it's really not so nice. The room upstairs is really noisy 'creaking floor'.
I still think the room is really overrated compared to what we get.
But the owners are really kind.

Stayed April 2012, traveled as a couple

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2008

The owners of this house are very nice people, but they work full time, and the B&B is an after-thought at best. I was quite an effort to get power to the television, to get clean, dry towels, etc. Also, the breakfast advertised is evidently non-existent.

The good news is that it's very reasonably priced in an expensive city. The drive from the house to downtown Victoria is about 10 minutes, nearly all on main roads. There are also a couple of very nice little breakfast places within about a 5-minute drive. The neighborhood is residential, so there are only a few little stores down at the corner.

In short, I would only recommend this place if money is a MAJOR consideration.
