“Beautiful Fairholme Manor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2004

We've more than enjoyed our stay here. The Penthouse Suite is the nicest room we've ever stayed in, from the fabulous view, spacious surroundings, lovely decor and deck. The beautiful flowers added the final touch.
We really appreciate your cheerfulness & hospitality. We've loved all of your suggestions for activities and ways to experience your great city. We have had a wonderful time in Victoria and we are sorry we only had 2 nights to stay here. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. The fresh fruits were great and so were the Eggs Benedict & the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes!
In additon the setting was perfect ! There is no better place to stay!!

First, the room that we stayed in (and rooms that we saw) were quite nice. (We had the "penthouse", which had a full kitchen and more space than we could use.)

However, breakfast was a disappointment. We knew it was a bad sign when we sat down that the orange juice was from concentrate. It went downhill from there.

Especially given the price (275 canadian, I believe), we were not wowed by this place, especially given our expectations from the web site and other reviews.

For this amount of money, I would have rather paid $100 more and stayed somewhere like Sooke or $100-200 less and been equally satisfied at another B&B.

We stayed here, September 2003 for part of our Honeymoon. We loved it so much. The Inn Keeper was so nice and helpful, she made reservations at a tea house for us and recommended tons of things for us to do. The room was amazing, great views and always clean. I was so excited every morning for the gormet breakfast, so good. We wanted to stay another night but they were booked. I recommend this place to everyone and this is where we will go back.

I almost didn't book into this B & B because of the last review posted on this website. What a mistake that would have been! From the moment we arrived and were greeted by this charming innkeeper we were smitten! The inn is located in one of the most prestigious areas of Victoria and is within walking distance to downtown. The innkeeper and her staff are charming and the service is impeccable. The rooms are decorated to perfection and the gardens are best enjoyed with a glass of wine on a relaxing afternoon. Fairholme Manor is a gem!

I wish I could tell you about the Fairholme Manor, because it looks beautiful on the website, the price was right, and it has a great location.However, I can't tell you about it, because the owner gave away our room, so we will not be staying there. She also didn't tell me about it until I phoned (very expensively from Japan) to ensure everything would be all right. It wasn't. Perhaps if we have stayed there it would have been great. However, due to incompetence, we won't be staying there.
