We stayed with Ron at the end of a 5 week holiday using B&Bs throughout western Canada and Alaska. His breakfasts were the best that we experienced - beautifully presented and delicious. His local advice was always useful and charmingly given. Ifanwen is well located for walking into the downtown area and parking on site is available for one car.... More

Loved the location close to downtown and in the famous James Bay heritage home area. Ron the host really helped us enjoy the best of Victoria, with fabulous breakfasts in his garden setting to start the day, and suggestions based on our interests of what to see and do. Having worked years in the hospitality business in Victoria, Ron is... More

There is much to like about the Ifanwen Bed and Breakfast. First, we enjoyed two of the best breakfasts we’ve ever eaten, in great part due to Ron’s skill in the kitchen and meticulous care and attention to every detail of the presentation. The hardest part was choosing from the menu. I savored every bite of the sweet omelet and... More

Great location, clean and large rooms and a host who knows how to cook a fantastic breakfast fit for a queen or king. Ron, the owner is a font of knowledge and... More

Get ready for a warm friendly Canadian welcome and hospitality. This is a terrific find. Two large guestrooms, very clean and neat. Each guestroom has it's own bath. Wonderful breakfasts, you make your breakfast choice the night before. The host, Ron, is a great resource for area activities, restaurants and history. Ideal location a few blocks from the inner harbor.... More

My name boomed across the PA system as the ferry was about to pull out of Victoria Harbor. My first thought was my luggage was too heavy and I owed some kind of fee. Instead, I had the pleasure of sitting back down holding my jacket that I left behind at Ifanwen. Ron, the owner had rushed it down to... More
