“Quiet, lovely home”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Humbolt house is on a quiet, private street in the heart of "downtown" Victoria. The owner was very helpful with arranging our plans even though we changed them last minute because of rain. Of course, the breakfasts are wonderful and I enjoyed the relaxed breakfast in our room. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: The celebration room is my favorite but the less expensive smaller room on the first floor is also...

The Celebration Room was beautiful & quiet! You choose your breakfast plus the time you want it the night before & it's delivered through the dumbwaiter in the morning! The breakfast is inside a picnic basket. The whole experience was awesome except for when the hottub started leaking downstairs but the owner was very prompt & professional. The chocolates & brandy in the old-fashioned crystal decanters all added to having gone back in time! Almost didn't want to leave the room to go sight-seeing!!

Room Tip: It is expensive but worth it for what you get. Very rarely run into other people that are staying th...

After 4 days on the Juan de Fuca trail it felt like heaven to enter Edward´s Room and see the lovely interior and the jacuzzi. Hunboldt House is located in walking distance to Victoria downtown and offers off road parking. David and his family were very friendly and helped out with everything we needed. The in-room breakfast was extraordinairy (try the crepes).

What can I say? The Humboldt House B&B is much more than a B&B..it is a home away from home (but with better service and much better breakfasts!) David and his wife are the key to this amazing nook of old world charm and service. Booking was a dream and David went out of his way to accomodate my needs on business (2 nights) as well as personally with my family.(3 nights) The suites are amazing c/w fireplaces, jacuzzi's and Victorian furnishings. The rooms were VERY quiet and private as this B&B is situated on a quiet street yet close to the harbour (10 minute walk) and all shopping (5-10 minutes walk.)
David has a wonderful breakfast menu which can change daily. Not the "continental" stuff of other establishments but eggs benedict with croissants, fresh fruit, orange juice (to go with your complimentary champagne), coffee/tea or his signature seafood and smoked salmon crepes .... all ending with a hand-made and exquisite truffle. This is by far the best kept secret in Victoria....but not for long!!!

Room Tip: The Edwards room is wonderful (for a couple) as is the floral room (for a family). The upper floors...

Can't say enough good things about this B&B. A bit pricey but the manager there, Dave, sure delivered it. So it's worth every penny. He welcomed us with tasty truffle and wine. He even let us choose which room to stay at and we picked a bigger one but in the end all the rooms are equipped with jacuzzi tub and very mood soothing music. The location is great. Will return for sure! Oh and Buchart Garden tickets are cheaper here too ;)

This was a very good bed and breakfast, with a central location. The breakfasts were large and delicious. My only complaint is breakfast is served to each separately to ensure quality and freshness, so you have to sign up early, or you have to wait until later in the morning to have breakfast. The room was smaller, but clean. I would definitely return, and recommend this bed and breakfast.

Loved it, will always come back...

We stayed Mikado room, very romantic (with a jacuzzi tub) but maybe a little dated.

Truffles and roses were a nice touch. Great breakfast, with four choices. Close to downtown and in a quiet area.

Awesome! Great job.
