Rooms very comfortable and well appointed. The owners were very helpful with local advice and amenities (refrigerator for snacks, leftovers, cookies, tea). They had storage for our tandem bike. And the breakfast was the best B&B fare we've ever experienced. Tasty with a capital "T", and enough to take leftover pastries as a snack during the day's riding.

Ashcroft house was the best stay of our 14 night trip. The home is very comfortable. Our room had the most luxurious king bed and was very roomy. The breakfast was the best. No need to have lunch after that 4 course meal. Paulanne makes scones that are to die for. She gives you a bag to pack up leftovers for the day. We had to leave early to catch the ferry but didn't have to worry about missing breakfast. Paulanne gave us two bags of food to take which carried us for the next 2 days. Anything you need to know about Victoria, you can find out from Paulanne from restaurant recommendations to places to see. You can even get your Big Red Bus tickets from her. The location is perfect, only a short stroll to the gorgeous Beacon Park and also the waterfront. We couldn't have chosen a better place.

Great place : a few meters from the sea with view over Olympic mountains ; not far from Victoria downtown (nice walk to get there, along the water, or straight on). We had the suite on ground floor : beautiful bathroom, large room with comfortable king size bed (and sofabed for our daughter), plus a kitchen where we could cook when needed. The breakfast was gorgious : somewhat too big for our appetites, but we could take with us what we did not eat and have it for lunch or dinner. And our hostess was so kind and helpful. Really worth the price.

We recently stayed at the Ashcroft B&B and we had a wonderful experience there! Our hosts Paulanne and David were very welcoming and they have created a beautiful and relaxing B&B.

We stayed in the Orchid Suite for two nights. When Paulanne first showed us our room, we were most impressed with the spacious bathroom. It had a comfortable two person soaker tub and a shower. The colours of the room had an old, but also modern feel to it. The Orchid Suite also had a good sized kitchenette which was nice to have. We didn't use it much during our stay, but it would be very handy to have if you were to stay for a longer period of time.

Our hosts were very accomodating and we really appreciated the little details they took to, in helping us enjoy our stay there. They recommended a great place called Ferris' Oyster Bar & Grill for dinner, which was perfect! We tried the upstairs part of the restaurant as the downstairs was full, but it was exactly the kind of place we were looking for =)

I had read some reviews about this b&b before booking it, and had heard about the delicious breakfasts they served. The reviews were totally right and we had amazing breakfasts on both mornings! Paulanne's baking was incredible Her scones were my favourite =) You definitely won't be hungry till about dinner time, after having one of these breakfasts!

This B&B is definitely a place to check out =)

I have just returned from a week in Ashcroft House, what a great experience it was. I felt like I was at home Paulanne and David made me so welcome the breakfast was wonderful and so filling I could never manger lunch. I was in the Wedgewood room and it was perfect from the wonderful large bed to the robes and slippers provided. If I ever go back to Victoria I will make Ashcroft House my home again.

What a privilege to stay at the Ashcroft House, and an even greater privilege to be served by Paulanne and her sumptuous four-course breakfasts! This B&B is very beautiful, warm, inviting, and radiates with so much positive energy. Our bed in the Sheldon room was so comfortable and cozy, we ended up sleeping 10 hours on our first night! We were so refreshed and rejuvenated the next day, we decided to walk from Ashcroft to Craigdarroh Castle which took us about an hour. Then from the Castle, we strolled to Chinatown and stopped at the shops on Fort St. and continued on to Inner Harbor where we had dinner. When we returned to the house at night, it was so nice to plop down on the oversized leather sofas and relax in the living room. We have stayed in nice B&B's before, and Ashcroft is the best!
