“I can't imagine staying anywhere else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2010

My mother and I booked a room here after a rave review from friends. The charm and luxury of our stay superseded our already-high expectations! The location is quiet and residential, but mere minutes from the Empress and the Inner Harbour. The house is impeccably maintained, with a stunning yard, charming details in every corner, and a fabulous blend of lovely antiques and intriguing modern art. We stayed in Room 2, which had an antique bed set (very comfy!), a sitting room, a large bathroom, a sunny kitchen space, and our own verandah and door out into the garden. Needless to say, we had plenty of room to spread out. We loved exploring the home and all of its treasures. Our hosts, Don and Fernando, were gracious and friendly to everyone, and very accommodating to the needs of other guests. The breakfasts were divine, and creative, but with a nice dash of tradition, added to by the delicate dishware and formal dining room. I liked that we felt as if we were stepping back in time, but without things being stuffy in the slightest. The atmosphere of the Albion Manor is warm and welcoming, rather than stiff and stilted. I will certainly be booking a room here on any future stay in Victoria. This B&B is a true gem.

Fernando and Don operate a uniquely wonderful Guest House which is beautifully decoarted and has been refurbished to original splendour of 100 years ago. Each room is quite different and we were able to select our room in advance on their website. Breakfast was something else - a goumet treat of lightly curried fruit in creme frais/almonds followed by Granny's Bread (more like a cake with nuts, apricots and choc chips) then srambled egg on asparagus & ham topped in a hollandaise sauce. From the calorie point of view, pleased we were only there one night!! Albion Manor is conveniently located just 5 minutes walk from the Victoria Clipper Terminal and maybe slightly longer into the main town. 100% recommendation!

The Albion was very comfortable....great claw foot tub in our room, comfy mattress and nice porches to relax and read on. Nice location a bit away from the center but near Fisherman Wharf. We loved the nearby restaurants recommended by the owners: The Superior and Santiagos. We will return when in Victoria!

On our recent visit to Victoria we were delighted to stay at this wonderful B & B. A charming house, with a lovely garden, and a great location within walking distance to many attractions.

We had an awesome room which included a sunny kitchen and an outdoor garden area. We looked forward to our delicious breakfasts which were served in a beautiful dining room. The entire house has the feel of old world charm and is full of interesting artwork and furnishings. Owners Don and Fernando helped make our stay enjoyable and we would recommend this B & B to anyone visiting Victoria. We will definitely be back.

Don and Fernando provide such a lovely experience at the Albion Manor.
The rooms are all amazing, with each offering unique facilities. Our very large suite included a lovely small kitchen area and private access onto a terrace and into the garden.
Breakfasts were very special with unusual but delightful food and the tea in bone china cups was especially welcome after so many drinks out of styrene cups over our trip.
The location is excelent being just a short walk from the inner harbour and the city centre.
The best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in.
