My boyfriend and I had planned a trip to Victoria, BC back in August. We had originally booked a stay at Oceans Island Inn Garden Suites although when we arrived and attempted to check in, we were told that the hotel overbooked us and had called all over town to try to find us accommodation on what is considerably the busiest weekend of the entire year -- Victoria Symphony Splash takes place this weekend. Luckily, the John Lewis House had a cancellation and we were put up in this lovely B&B for a night. Bob and Becky were such welcoming hosts, we immediately felt very at home. Their house is immaculate and beautiful. We had a lovely room, private bathroom and woke up the next day to a delicious breakfast spread, complete with homemade banana muffins (which they packaged up for us to go!). Bob was extremely knowledgeable about Victoria and happily answered our many questions about where to eat and what to see. All in all, we were ecstatic with the service we received at the John Lewis House. So much so that we did not want to leave to stay our 2nd night in the Oceans Island Garden Suites, as our original itinerary called for. The location was superb -- walking distance to downtown Victoria and situated on a beautiful quaint street close to the water. I recommend this B&B to any couple (young or old -- we are 25) or family looking for genuine service with a smile. We could not have asked for a better stay or better hosts. Bob and Becky most certainly made our stay in Victoria that much more memorable.
