“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

We were visiting Victoria with another couple and chose Albion Manor based on trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The B&B is unique, and an experience in itself. The decor is eclectic but it adds to the unique charm of the inn. Don and Fernando were wonderful hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed the gourmet breakfasts and talking with the other guests over breakfast. The location is perfect for walking to most of Victoria's city sights, but the street itself is quiet. The gardens are lovely and Fernando uses many of the flowers throughout the house. Would highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Victoria without kids. We were is room 7. Our friends were in room 3. Room 3 was quite large with a sitting room and private entrance.

I try to avoid writing anything using only superlatives, but a commentary on our stay at Albion Manor will have to be the exception. We (two couples) spent two nights in Rooms 3 and 4, each unique and each just delightful: large, comfy, airy, and opening on to a shared living room with a PC for guests. The "formal" breakfast (at either 8 or 9 each morning) fell into the category of fine dining and fine chatting with other guests. Innkeepers Fernando and Don have made the house an art "gallery" that is warm, eclectic and fun. And, the gardens are sumptious. The property is very convenient to the central business area of Victoria, the government buildings and the Empress Hotel. We walked all over from the house. A stay at Albion Manor is a five star experience.

We arrived early in the morning and Fernando graciously stored our bags for us so we could go sightseeing. When we returned everything was already in our gorgeous room and the hospitality the entire time was just wonderful. We stayed three nights and didn't want to leave ever. The house is decorated so beautifully and the garden was a delight. We had room 8 in the front with a balcony overlooking the beautiful pond and flowers galore. We can't wait to go back. Thanks soo much Don and Fernando.

Room Tip: Every room is gorgeous and Fernando is beautifying each with his paintings but we loved room 8 with...

My cousin and I spent three nights at Albion Manor in the garden room suite with a private garden entrance. The suite was large, comfortable and very nicely furnished with beautiful unique pieces, as was the remainder of the Victorian house. The B&B gardens are spectacular with many flowers - gladiolas, roses, delphiniums, dahlias, hollyhocks, etc. - in bloom. The location on a quiet residential street is perfect and within easy walking distance of town and also very near several restaurants only moments away. We tried two of them (both recommended by Fernando), and both were excellent. Fernando and Don orchestrate to perfection. We were served several course gourmet breakfasts in a lovely Victorian dining room setting. Don arranged for tickets and bus transportation for us to Butchart Gardens. Fernando suggested activities we might enjoy. Our visit to Victoria was even more memorable thanks to Don and Fernando. I can’t imagine a more perfect place to stay or more gracious hosts.

Everything is a treat for the senses from Don's exquisitely presented breakfasts to Fernando's beautiful and whimsical ceramics and paintings. The innkeepers provide the perfect balance of congeniality and efficiency in a sumptuous, artistic environment.

From the moment you see this gem of a home you know you are in for something special. From the lush garden, full of flowering plants and a variety of original art pieces to the wonderfully painted Victorian home, your senses fill with wonder and joy. Meeting Don and Fernando makes it feel like you have finally arrived home after a long journey. Tiptoe through the house to see all of the incredible, original art work that will make you laugh and ponder. You will sleep like a worn out child on the comfortable beds after soaking in the enormous bathtub. Breakfast is served in old style tradition and the tastes and smells lead you to some of best breakfast you will experience anywhere. Did we enjoy our stay here? More than I can describe. We can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Okay there is no pool, I just swam in the giant tub! All of the rooms are special in different way...

We stayed in this exceptional B&B in Victoria for 2 nights. This is for sure a very special place: the beautiful garden, the colours of the house, all the art work, the tasteful and individual interior design and furnishings, the relaxed and friendly atmosphere - and, the best of all, the breakfast.
It's very well and centrally situated, no problems with parking. You can walk to all downtown sights from here.
Fernando is not only a great, fancy artist, but also a sociable host; Don prepared the best breakfast we had on our 3-week Washington State / British Columbia trip (lemon ricotta pancakes and salmon fritata). Breakfast is served at a wonderfully set table (very stylish in an old-fashioned way) and obviously the guests love the early-morning conversations with each other.
Clean rooms, good value - would definitely stay there again.
