Dashwood Manor Seaside Bed and Breakfast Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 4, 2012

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. The room was perfect: large, had a balcony with a view of the ocean, spotless room and a really comfy bed. The breakfasts were also outstanding. Fresh fruit, great cooked dishes, wonderful selection of tea. Dave, the owner, very personable; he created a welcoming atmosphere. We were impressed with all of the tourist info he sent to us ahead of time: list of recommended restaurants and another list of tourist attractions.
He made a couple of dinner reservations for us and provided a discount entry to Butchart Gardens. He also recommended a walking tour that was very interesting. If you want a really enjoyable B&B experience in Victoria, the Dashwood Manor is the perfect place.

Room Tip: We really enjoyed the Somerset Room--large bedroom, large bathroom with shower and separate bathtub...

We stayed here for 3 nights in August 2012 and had a lovely time. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were fabulous as was the view from the breakfast room. Dave was very helpful and provided us with great recommendations for dinner and day trips. The location is very convenient to the main Victoria attractions but still removed from the downtown bustle.

Room Tip: The Tudor Room doesn't face the sometimes busy street but still has lovely sea views.

It was our first time to experience wonderful bed and breakfast at Dashwood Manor in Victoria. My husband and I were very impressed with Dashwood Manor with a perfect location from the beach. It was like being in another century! The room and the bathroom, Chelsea were very clean and excellent, not a scratch or a mark on the walls or window shutters. The bed was very comfortable with all nice and fluffy beddings. We were so relaxed as soon as we walked into Dashwood Manor! We didn't want to leave as we were in a fantasy world instead of a reality world! The breakfast from gorgeous breakfast room with antique furniture and ocean view from Beacon Hill Park was superb! Sharon and Dave were the perfect host! Dave was excellent with recommendations how to get to downtown from Dashwood Manor. There are buses on Cook Street which take you to downtown. Excellent restaurants, grocery stores, Cook St liquor store and drugstore on Cook Street which are not far to walk from Dashwood Manor. Beagle pub on Cook St. was excellent as we stopped there for beer and snack on our first evening. My husband and I would definitely come back to Dashwood Manor in the near future. Thank you Dave and Sharon for our wonderful stay!

Dashwood Manor was a wonderful home base in Victoria. The room and bed were very comfortable, the breakfasts delightful and the proximity to everything was very convenient. We opted not to rent a car and walked almost everywhere. I recommend comfortable walking shoes if you are going to go that route, but we easily walked to and from downtown daily. We took a cab to and from the ferry with our bags, and took a cab to the White Heather Tea Room, but the weather and surrounding areas make walking a preferable mode of transportation. Dave and Sharon were warm hosts and made things easy on us with recommendations and helped make reservations. My husband with severe allergies remarked how dust free their lovely Heritage Home was - very clean!

This was our second trip to Victoria in 16 years. Our B&B of 16 years ago was no longer an option, so we were at a loss, until we found Dashwood Manor. Couldn't have picked a better locale - right across from the dog park, right across from the sea, right across from the Olympics, right across from Becon Hill Park, just down the street from Cook Street Village, and a short walk to downtown Victoria. Our hosts couldn't have been nicer. All of their suggestions were well received and appreciated (whale watching tours, time and tickets to Butchart Gardens, restaurant suggestions, etc.) The delicious, varied breakfast was a guarantee for us to return from our morning walks at a brisk pace. We felt as if we were on a honeymoon (37 years after the fact.)

Excellent food, warm comfortable room, the owner is extremely knowledgable on the Island. Breakfast room is gorgeous...The Manor is walking distance to everything, and the tour buses run right by! Very organized and all the owner's hard work is noticed and has paid off..

Perfect spot for our family reunion. Dave and Sharon were the perfect hosts. Their suggestions from what to do, where to eat and how to relax made our trip more enjoyable. Every breakfast was yummy and great beginning to the day! Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Suggest upper floor with water view. Very scenic overlooking the US.
