I booked this Inn primarily based on other tripadvisor reviews, and the great price compared w/ other hotels/inns in Victoria. I was really happy with the rooms, the food was delicious (and there's tons of it...you won't go hungry here). Sue and Zen are warm, charming, open hosts who make you feel right at home. There's no awkward conversation that maybe you might fear staying in a B&B. Sue gave us a wonderful overview of the area, a little history lesson, a ton of restaurant recommendations, and you basically feel like you have a "home" to come back to each day. I really liked my room - ground floor w/ a great spa tub, a really comfy bed, and fresh-made cookies in the room. My mom had a room with a sitting area, fireplace, and a king bed. The rooms are spacious, there's lots of good storage should you need it. I loved that you can walk from the back of the property to visit the floating homes, and you have a great view of the city of Victoria (as you are, in fact, across the Harbour from downtown Victoria). You can walk a seaside path all along from the Inn to the wharf/Inner Harbour. It's not a short walk, but nice and long, full of lovely people walking their dogs, jogging, and otherwise enjoying the beautiful surroundings. I would not stay any place else should I get a chance to return to this lovely island.
