We loved that the house was near the top of a hill with almost complete privacy. When we were walking up the walk to check in there was a deer grazing in the front yard. We stayed in the room with the private bath, and everything was spotless. There is a huge deck off of the dining area that is... More

We stayed here two weeks ago for 6 nights. At first we thought it might be a bit long, but in the end we wished we could have stayed longer! There is so much to see and do in and around Victoria, and when you are tired of all that this is an oasis to rest and relax. Incredible breakfast,... More

Off the beaten track but well worth the effort. Now 6 months since I was there but I still think about Jos, Donna, and their lovely home frequently ..... photos of their home are on my screen saver ... I smile a lot when I recall their friendliness and hospitality. Makes me wish I could get back to Canada more... More

We stayed here recently for 2 nights (married couple plus adult friend). The location is a little of the beaten track, but is really beautiful. The hosts, Jos & Donna are super friendly and gave us great information on what to see and do. The house itself is very nice and comfortable with great views. You won't want lunch after... More

My husband and I stayed at Arbutus Hill B&B for two nights recently and it was just fabulous. Our bed was incredibly comfortable, our room was decorated quite nicely, and environmentally friendly toiletries were provided. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, providing maps and recommendations for different activities. The breakfast was *out of this world*. Hands down, the best breakfast... More

We stayed 4 nights at Arbutus Hill, and our group of 5 had all 3 rooms. Jos and Donna are amazing hostesses and prepared a delicious breakfast each morning. The setting couldn't be more perfect. We spent a lot of time enjoying the birds and other wildlife. We highly recommend this spot to anyone and hope to return in the... More

We stayed with Jos and Donna for 4 nights at the start of our third trip to BC and we wish we'd found them before now. They have a lovely home in a very quiet neighbourhood amongst woodland (which includes arbutus trees) on top of a hill- the name says it all. Their home was lovely, their food even better... More

If you think you are on the wrong way - you are on the right way. Very charming place with brilliant hosts! Perfect breakfast, fantastic scenery, nice rooms and big bathroom. Perfect located for day trips around Victoria. - a real B&B jewel.

We planned a stay of three nights in the Victoria area but didn't want to stay in a standard "cookie cutter" hotel. We found this wonderful bed & breakfast and couldn't have been more pleased. It is close to everything but feels like it is off in the woods. The food was excellent and the hosts were so helpful. It... More
