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 The charm and luxury of our stay superseded our already-high expectations!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.
