So close to the Parliament Buildings, Inner Harbour, Empress & BC Museum and all the busyness that goes with it and yet so very quiet, set on a residential side street. Nestled between two other homes this old Victorian home offers the perfect location for a romantic getaway... If it's first class you want and wanting everything new, it's really not for you.

You can't beat the ease of walking to all the harbor sites and restaurants. We stayed in the first room facing Kingston street, and the only sound was from the horse-drawn carriage going by. Our Asian host, Douglas, went out of his way to accommodate our food allergies. Because the breakfast menu choices are a little odd, make sure you ask questions, don't assume. i.e. The scone is not a scone but more of a flat cinnamon roll, and the scrambled eggs are swimming in olive oil and sesame seeds. The leaded and stained glass windows in the Inn are beautiful along with the period antiques. The bathroom with a jacuzzi was clean, and the king size bed was pretty comfortable.

It was a delightful experience staying at the Haterleigh Heritage Inn on our girls getaway weekend! The vintage home was nicely appointed for a comfortable stay. The Victorian style home is within walking distance of the ferry and all of Victoria’s beautiful downtown sights. Our room on the second floor was comfortable and tidy. Our host, Douglas, was very hospitable and accommodating and a very good cook! We enjoyed a full (and delicious) breakfast each morning before beginning our adventuring for the day! I would definitely recommend a stay at the Haterleigh Heritage Inn If your visiting Victoria!

My husband and I were really forward to staying in this beautiful, historic Victorian B & B, having booked it months in advance for a 6 night stay in March this year. Upon our arrival at the correct check in time, we were given an unusually cool reception, something that is uncommon for this kind of accommodation. Having said that, we are a clean cut couple in our 50s, and have travelled worldwide, stayed in numerous B & Bs in North America and in Europe. The innkeeper showed us our room, gave us a briefing of the rules of the house and took our full payment on our credit card. We left our luggage in the room and after perusing some tourist brochures and maps, we went out to enjoy the city of Victoria. Returning to our room around 7pm, I went to the bathroom and as my husband had left the seat up, I lowered it gently and both the lid and seat fell off the toilet. At this time, I had a better look around the bathroom and was taken aback at how dirty it appeared. The room was decorated in numerous Knick knacks that were coated in a thick layer of dirt and dust. Even taking into account that this is an old Victorian house, I cannot understand how it is possible to expect guests to overlook dirt such as what had accumulated on everything in this room. We didn’t see any other rooms, so this is just a review of the room that we were given. In our usual pleasant manner, we approached the innkeeper, explaining that the toilet seat would need replaced or repaired and could he please have the room cleaned. To our dismay, we were asked to leave the property....that this was low season and that there was a Sandman Inn and many other motels and hotels available. He added that it was not possible for him to call a plumber to repair the toilet (the toilet seat had fallen off) and that he could not have a cleaner come until the next day. At that point, we realized that the innkeeper wanted us gone. This was the most abrupt and rude treatment that we have ever experienced in all of our travels. At 7:30pm, we were basically “homeless” on the streets of Victoria!!! Thankfully, a quaint boutique hotel nearby was available for 1 night. We then had to restructure our entire vacation, which all in all turned out wonderful. We did get our money refunded, but this still did not make up for the inconvenience and the stress of being left without a place to stay on such sudden notice. Fortunately, we are savvy travellers and took this in stride, chalking it up to one of those bizarre experiences that we could laugh about later.....much later. I am posting this review as a warning to other travellers. Obviously, we will not recommend this place to anyone, ever.

Interesting B&B in a central location, so easy to walk to the harbour. We had a spacious quaint room with coombed ceilings,a balcony and comfortable beds. The breakfast options were unusual but it was clear the host was going to great lengths.
