The building is incredible in a fantastic neighborhood (it is worth visiting it by foot, the ancient mansions are awesome). Very nice rooms and clean, excellent breakfast. I had to get up early one morning for it was my graduation from university of victoria and the staff was able to accomodate me with an early breakfast, which was very much appreciated. Overall, it was a nice stay, but we did not get what we were looking for from a B&B; we felt we were in an hotel. I regret that the staff only led us to touristic areas instead of nices places where locals would go. We appreciated that they did not chase the friendly neighbor's cat from their garden; he was super nice and always seeking for attention.
