As a veteran traveler who's stayed at fine hotels and B&B's around the world, this place now ranks as one of my favorites. From the ideal location as gateway to Victoria, southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, to the beautifully appointed inn and friendly staff, I would not hesitate to recommend this delightful inn to anyone visiting the area.
My wife and I arrived for our three night stay, late in the afternoon and from the moment we pulled up to the property we were duely impressed. It was safe, clean, modern and well kept outside, and while checking in we were even offered some excellent sherry! The gorgeous room we requested exceeded our very high standards for quiet luxury, comfort and privacy.
Prior to delicious breakfast every morning, coffee and tea were waiting for us outside our door making getting prepared in the morning even easier.. And if you ever get to experience the Croc Madame for breakfast, you're in for a real treat! This is an authentic French-Canadian dish that my wife and I now make and enjoy at home. The staff were professional, attentive and very helpful, thus ensuring that our stay was everything we hoped it would be. And for the money we paid, we consider it an outstanding value that we'll be hard-pressed to ever find anywhere else.
All in all, this is one of the best experiences we've ever had at any hotel or inn and we can't wait to go back!
