“It was heavenly!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2011

Paulanne and David are fabulous hosts in this elegant, cozy B&B! Our room was gorgeous with the most comfortable king-size bed and king-size bathroom complete with a deep double soaker tub, candles,shower, cozy robes and anything you might need!!
The breakfasts were scrumptious and they even provided ziplock bags so we could take scones and coffee cakes with us for a mid-afternoon snack!!
We couldn't ask for a better place to stay and it's hard to leave!!

We spent a wonderful night here, with our 3 older children and my 2 elderly parents (including a blind father!), after a long day at a family Christmas party. This was the perfect place to rest and recover, all our varied needs were provided for and anything else we wanted (pizza delivered to the door, for instance) easily available.
The breakfast was everything advertised and more - even doggie bags for the home-baked pastries we couldn't manage on top of all the other wonderful food.
Many thanks to Paula Ann and David for their excellent hospitality and caring attention!

This B&B was a fantastic find. We received a first class welcome and our room was fantastic, a lovely bed and good size bathroom. As for the breakfasts, what can we say, they were an adventure for the taste buds and beautifully presented. Look out for the hummingbirds in the tree outside the breakfast room window. The property was well located only a 10 minute or so walk to the centre of Victoria, if you take the direct route, or a pleasant stroll into Victoria along the coast.
What really made this B&B stand out compared to the others that we stayed in during our trip were the little add on’s. There was complimentary bottled water available in a communal fridge, there were always home made cookies available, there was a computer with internet and printer available for the guests use and there was a pleasant communal area to sit and relax.
The B&B was far better than any 5* hotel and Paulanne was so helpful, always interested in where you were going and giving advise on directions and times.
If we ever come back to Victoria we will certainly stay here. Thank you so much for making our stay in Victoria so enjoyable.

David and Paulanne were just the perfect host and hostess. The house is charming and beautifully decorated, with each room a delight. Our bed was fabulous...I'd like to own it. Paulanne's breakfast was nummy and generous and they both gave us great info to help us enjoy Victoria. The location is terrific, too. We stayed in a more expensive place the previous night and feel that Ashcroft is a much better value. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

My wife and I stayed here two nights and we will certainly be back. Our room was quite large with a private washroom. The common area was one of the most welcoming we've ever encountered, and the breakfast was absolutely fantastic! It's not very often you are served a four-course breakfast with authentic homemade English scones - how fitting for Victoria!

The location is great - easy to find and within walking distance to the ocean and inner Victoria Harbour.

**Bonuses: We've stayed at a few B & B's, but what we especially liked about this B & B was the tea, coffee, water and access to guest computer (and wifi) that was available anytime, in addition to M & M's, cookies, and sherry downstairs. Lastly, our room was 'made-up' during the day, which we did not expect.

We give top marks for value because the location, at this price-point, with breakfast included, the finer Victoria hotels just don't compare.

Paulanne and David couldn't have been more accomodating. they welcomed us with open arms and took care of us. They were the ultimate hosts and this was from the very start of the day with a breakfast that couldn't be beat until we came in late and poured ourselves a glass of sherry to take up to bed at night with some excellent cookies. The Ashcroft House was a wonderful place to stay and I would recommentd this place to any and all who are headed to Victoria.

We have tried many Bed and Breakfasts in Victoria and have settled on this one. Friendly owners, huge delicious breakfast, comfortable clean rooms, what more can you ask for ? Street parking is available and close enough to downtown's many amenities. No need to waste any food, either, baggies are given out so you can take a pastry with you to savour later.
