This was my first time staying at the Oak Bay Guest House. It was a lovely retreat! I stayed in the Oriental Suite, which had both a sitting room and a private balcony. The bed was very comfy, and the food was almost over the top! Really feel like it was a great value. One thing I'd recommend is to... More

Stayed here on our summer vacation to Victoria. I loved the old world charm and ambiance. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are excellent and they even give you extra muffins or scones as a snack for later. The rooms and furniture are old fashioned, that is part of the charm. I would highly recommend Oak Bay... More

The oak bay guest house has a certain old british charm. Nevertheless the rooms are too old and the bathrooms need to be renewed. Breakfast was good and the Stuff was friendly. The Oak Bay house is a bit far from the main Town center of Victoria.

Thank you for your review, we are always pleased to receive feedback. Actually the guest house has just changed hands and, although many updates have already been done, we are aware that there are still a couple of things that could be improved. It would be useful to know which room you stayed in so we could focus particular attention... More

Nice stay after the door was repaired. Breakfast was very good. The bus to downtown was only 5 min away. Only a pity that on Canada Day they forgot to ride us home. Well a taxi driver is always happy to being you away.

This was our 7th stay at Oak Bay Guest House. The owners are wonderful people and always make you feel welcome. The rooms are great and the breakfasts are fabulous, not to mention the muffins that they send you away with. Always a great stay. Highly recommended.

Another stay at the guest house and another enjoyable time. Room was well kept, clean with a comfy bed. Breakfasts on both days were enjoyable. One day it was a lovely french toast and another it was eggs benny. Vegetarian options were also provided. Great hosts. A go to for us.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the quiet, safe community of Oak Bay, where wealthy Victorians have been escaping the hustle and bustle of Victoria's Inner Harbour and the Empress Hotel for over a hundred years. Be only minutes (and a world) away from all the Victoria has to offer. This Victoria Bed and Breakfast, located in BC, Canada, is a gracious 1912 Victorian Home. The home was converted to the Newport Inn in 1922 and has been accommodating travelers to Victoria since then. There are 9 rooms and 2 suites, all with private bathrooms (10 of the bathrooms are en suite). Free breakfast. Sun lounge is perfect for an afternoon cup of tea or snack. A fireside lounge is cozy for an evening glass of wine. Oak Bay is a walkers paradise. Easy walking distance to Oak Bay Village, Oak Bay Beach Hotel, Oak Bay Marina, Victoria Golf Club, Royal Victoria Yacht Club, Willow Beach and almost countless parks. Close to University of Victoria and Camosun. Enjoy the tranquility of a traditional English home in the heart of Oak Bay Village, steps from the Salish Sea. ... more   less
