“The best place to stay in Victoria!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stayed at Dashwood for 4 days and 3 nights. It was wonderful! Our room - the Chelsea Room - was beautiful. The views from this corner room are truely amazing.

Our hosts were so gracious and the food - well, the food was great! Don't pass on the bacon or you'll regret it.

I am not sure if you'll get back this way or not, but if we do, there is no doubt that we'll stay here again.

Room Tip: Grab the Chelsea Room!!

Arriving at Dashwood Manor was like coming home. We stayed in the Chelsea Room on the second floor. This newly renovated bedroom and bathroom are slightly larger than the other rooms because it was the original master suite. Very clean and comfortable.There are several choices for breakfast and all are delicious and come with an ocean and mountain view. Michael and David are wonderful hosts. Dashwood is in the perfect location with access to the ocean beach and Beacon Hill Park, both, being just across the street. About 4-5 blocks north, you will find the Cook Street Village (neighborhood market, pharmacy, and many good places to eat.). Walk 3 blocks north on Cook to May Street and you can catch the bus. For $2.50 per day/per person, you can navigate through the city or to Swartz Bay. We highly recommend Dashwood Manor. You will want to read about its rich history and how Arthur and Eleanor Lineham came to settle at 1 Cook Street in 1912.

Lovely B&B right by the shore and Beacon Hill Park. The new owners are determined to make this already outstanding B&B even better. They are wonderful hosts, helpful with information and the breakfast is delicious. The place to stay in Victoria

My brother and his wife were celebrating their anniversary on the west coast of Canada. My wife and I caught a float plane from Seattle to meet them for the weekend. The Dashwood is a seven dollar cab ride from the city central. It is across the street from the water and Beacon Hill Park. The BnB is a beautiful old home, and the owners, David and Michael, were the best. We took the cheapest room in the place and it was absolutely comfortable. Being a century old home, the room was not 5 star hotel quality, but it was exactly what we expected. Breakfast is served every morning in a water view dining room with 1920s and 30s music softly playing in the background. We would sit for a few hours and enjoy the food, view, hospitality and ambiance. We wanted to play cards one night after a day of exploring and drinking. David and Michael brought a table and four chairs to my brothers much larger (more expensive) water view room. We will never stay anywhere else in Victoria.

My (now) fiance brought me here on a surprise trip to Victoria and proposed on the beach just in front of the Dashwood! It was a beautiful building and we had gorgeous views of the ocean from our room. We stayed in the Cambridge and it was lovely. Very comfortable and clean. The hosts, David and Michael were friendly and informative, helping us to decide where to eat dinner and giving us some brief history of Victoria and the Dashwood. In the morning we headed down to the sunny dining room for some breakfast. I ordered the herb omelette, and it was amazing. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. I have hopes of trying to duplicate it at home, but Michael did such a good job, I bet mine won't be nearly as good! I'm sure we will be back again. Thank you for a wonderful visit!

We love that you were proposed to across the street on the beach! Awesome!!!
The Manor omelette does seem to be one of the most requested items on our menu. :)

Set on the seafront in a leafy neighbourhood, this B & B already has marks in its favour. What puts it high up the scale is the attentive and charming welcome and service the owners provide. There is quite a wide choice for breakfast, which is well prepared. I appreciated that they could accommodate my schedule and serve breakfast before the 8 am appointed time. Highly recommended.

Michael and David are the hosts of this wonderful B&B and when we arrived had only been working on the manor for 6 weeks. So amazed at the great job they did...it is a bright and welcoming environment. The breakfast (so many choices) delicious and the service and attention impeccable. We were there as a family, my in-laws in one room and my husband, myself and my teenage daughter in a larger room. Wished we could have spent a few more days!
