I was there in early July with my whole family. We had all three of the rooms. My in-laws were in the Honeymoon Suite, my husband and I in the Luxury Suite and my sister-in-law, her husband and their kids in the Family suite. I was surprised when we were looking for places in Victoria that so many specifically said... More

Owners were nowhere to be found when we arrived, they left a note for us on outer door & left key in our unlocked room door. Rooms are up about 20+ stairs, no one there to help with luggage or answer questions. It was hot in the room, had a ceiling fan, but the light stayed on with the fan,... More

I stayed in the lower room which was exactly as described and pictured: small, cozy, and clean. I was there to defend my thesis, so I was stressed, but they ensured my stay was comfortable, and how couldn't it be in this location?! Great breakfast and incredibly friendly and helpful staff.

My visit was very enjoyable. Each morning I would spend a bit of time on the deck watching the Canadian Geese, blue herons and other migratory birds that were visiting. There are also otters that I spotted. An excellent place for anyone who loves nature and the outdoors. I took a bicycle ride (Bikes provided) to Hatley Castle & gardens,... More

Comfortable room, clean & tidy, great location for going to Victoria or heading up the Jean de Fuca coast. Welcoming host and tasty breakfast provided. Near to local parks and close to the beach / coast.

We enjoyed our stay and the opportunities to spend some time at the uni gardens and cycling and canoeing around the locale. It was great to be able to prepare our own food, but if you dont have a car, come prepared with all your requirements as there are no local shops. The room would benefit from a facelift, but...

For those of you not familiar with our place there are 3 modern luxury suites and a couple of more affordable rooms. If you wish views, luxury and privacy please book one of our condominium suites. There are hundreds of shops and dozens of restaurants within minutes by car, however, when you arrive here on a bicycle everything will seem... More

The lodge is simply amazing, great location near Hatley Castle which is something we really wanted to see. Surrounded by nature, free kayaking, great view of beach boulevard and light house. Excellent family destination, especially when you have kids.

As our title suggests this B&B feels like a secret location, close enough to be part of a Victoria vacation, but far enough to escape the tourism trap of seeing an area without getting true exposure to the natural wonders of the place. Whale watching is nearby but the sublime experience of a bird watching kayak ride across the adjacent... More

Arrived after a long day of hiking and was grateful for the hot tub as well as the comfortable chairs overlooking the water -- a bird sanctuary. Watched herons and geese for a couple hours as we ate our picnic dinner. Comfortable bed and delicious breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer.

I spent a week at Birds of a Feather. The location is very idyllic. Once the day's activities are done, one can sit comfortably overlooking the lagoon and all its wildlife. It's very quiet, clean and only about 20 minutes from town. My bed was extremely comfy as well. The breakfast setting is classy and the food made fresh every... More
