My husband and I stayed there for 5 days during New Years, and I must say what a place. First of all, the B&B is in the perfect location just a few blocks from downtown. The house is beautiful and the breakfast is amazing and it is very romantic . Everyday you get a menu and you choose what you... More

My husband and I honeymooned in the Oriental Room. It was very quiet, with a (massive) comfy bed, large hot tub, fireplace, and reliable wireless. The B&B is very well located, just a few blocks from Victoria harbor and the downtown shopping district. Lots of great restaurants and pubs are nearby. It's walkable from the ferry and also provides free... More

We have stayed at Humboldt House - and its satellite property White Heather Cottage, 15-20 times. Both are wonderful. The proprietor, David Booth, is an extraordinary host. (The location of HH itself is the perfect walking distance from downtown so that it is very peaceful and quiet. The Cottage is a drive from downtown but only steps away from Dallas... More

My boyfriend and I celebrated our "meeting anniversary" at the romantic Humboldt House B&B this December, just in time for all the Christmas festivities in Victoria! It was a very windy afternoon when we first arrived at the quaint Humboldt House, located very close to the heart of Downtown Vancouver (it was a 5 minute walk to the Empress Hotel).... More

I have been here several times and I just can't stop coming back. I generally go late November or early December because I love how magical Victoria is during the holidays. It really comes alive. The service here is fantastic, easy parking and SO close to downtown it's a short walk. The breakfast is absolutely amazing, so cute the way... More

We booked the Humboldt House for our 40th anniversary celebration. There are many very good things about this B&B; with just a few tweaks we would rate it excellent. We had a very welcoming greeting from David, who offered sherry & cookies in the library before showing us to the Mikado Room. We loved the wood-burning fireplace and the small... More

This is a lovely heritage house with each room decorated to a theme. All rooms have large jacuzzi tubs and wood burning fireplaces. Some rooms are larger and brighter and some are more cozy. The owner David is very friendly and willing to accommodate and you are greeted with sherry and cookies in the library when you arrive and there... More

A beautifully decorated Victorian style hose. The rooms were very comfortable and each had a jet tub with hand shower (no stand up shower). Price was reasonable, the breakfast was great! Location was within a reasonable (not short but not out of reach) walking distance to downtown and much less to Beacon Hill Park. Each room came with a nice... More
