Let's see ... easy to find, easy parking, easy to get in, spacious, great view, well equipped, friendly hosts. Excellent breakfast, prepared and presented flawlessly, if just a little on the large side (which is apparently the standard for B&Bs). Fair price. Good beds, with reading lights (yay!) Three of us took the upstairs as a unit, which worked very... More

Great first impressions of Canada! We stayed here the day we arrived in Canada from the UK. It is a beautiful home in a lovely setting, and welcoming hosts. Breakfast in the garden was superb. We only stopped one night, but would happily have stayed on longer.

We were very happy to book this B&B very last minute. The hosts were very efficient & welcomed us. We enjoyed the hot tub after a great day in the sun.

Stayed here in August of 2013, very accommodating hosts. Came back after a hard day Kayaking! Watched the Sunset whilst having a drink on the decking then chilled in the hot tub. Woke up to a a four course breakfast including a Smoothie, Yogurt, Blueberry Pancakes with sausages and then Coffee! Will definitely be heading back here in 2015!

The Arcturus Retreat B&B is a perfect place to get away for a weekend.

We were warmly greeted, made to feel at home. The accommodations were very attractive, and we felt pampered. The breakfast crepes were delicious and the views are outstanding! Wish we could have stayed longer, but alas the ferry at the bottom of the hill was waiting for us! Would definitely stay here again.

Dirty towel on bathroom floor the night we arrived!!! We told them on the last day and this was the response: we though it was yours. Interesting!!!! Check and clean everything before you allow guests in. And tge breakfast was enough for a young child, not adults. We do not recommend the place.

Thank you for your comments. We appreciate feedback on your experience at our B&B and strive to correct any shortcomings in our service. As we noted with your partner, the towel left in the bathroom should have never happened, and we were embarrassed that we had missed it.

Brilliantly positioned for the final ferry trip across to Horseshoe Bay. A welcoming, comfortable and friendly environment delivered by enthusiastic hosts. We made use of the hot spa which was a bonus after following recommendations for an evening meal. Our room was very comfortable and spacious with everything you needed.

Arcturus is just what a b&b should be: a clean and private room with an ensuite in a big house with hosts who strike the right balance between discretion and friendliness.
