I swear Ian would cut off his own leg and graft it onto a guests if he thought it would improve their stay at the Abbeymoore. I challenge patrons to think of something you need (or even just like on a whim) that wasn't already anticipated. Fresh white chocolate cookies...anytime. Port at 2AM for an evening perambulation...well, you have to be sure it isn't the sherry also at your disposal. Breakfast (gratis) includes just about every foodstuff: meat to dairy to yogurt to fresh fruit to steamed veggies to rolls baked on site... No criticisms. No hovering either. Just a masterful performance by a true Master of the House.

OK - Just for the record I will not cut my leg off for a guest!

Of course all of us at Abbeymoore will do our very best to ensure your stay with us is enjoyable, memorable and downright special which is why so many members of the TripAdvisor community honour and humble us with so many great reviews.

On behalf of myself, my partner Anne, Michelle & Stephanie thank you! We couldn't do this without your appreciation and support.

My husband and I traveled from eastern Iowa to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Ian & Anne, along with the entire staff go out of their way to make sure you get the best of what Victoria has to offer. Great things about the Inn; location (easy walking to downtown), amazing breakfast, snacks (cookies, cakes), neverending port, chocolate around every corner, super comfy beds, heavenly sheets, beautiful rooms and sweeping front porch (to enjoy that book you brought along for travel). Stay here!!

Dear LV,

Thank you for taking the time to share your positive experience at Abbeymoore with the TripAdvisor community. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and would recommend us to other travellers however we are sorry that we failed to "blow you away" as we try to do with all our guests.

With regards to our breakfast room seating options I think it is important to point out that we offer both individual tables for two as well as a large "family style" communal table were guests can sit and enjoy the company of travellers from around the world. Like you this is where I like to sit when at a B&B but this is not true for everyone.

At Abbeymoore we want each of our guests to feel comfortable so luckily we have both options. Your visit to Abbeymoore was in August when the weather was great and we were able to offer breakfast "Al Fresco" on the large front porch. This popular space allows for a series of 5 tables for two but they are close enough that we typically find that conversation between guests occurs naturally.

As well as offering two types of breakfast seating we offer two distinctly different styles of rooms.

Our five heritage bedrooms are all located on the third floor. They all have en suite bathrooms and each room boasts a unique amenity such as a deck or a fireplace or a clawfoot tub. These rooms are decorated in heritage style and are very popular with folks looking for that style.

Our Garden Suites are spacious 1 bedroom suites with all the modern amenities like TVs, telephones, kitchens etc. The decore is not as "heritage" but they are typically described as gorgeous by guests. They offer easy access as they are located on the ground floor and have private entrances located on their own private patios. The patios are 2-3 steps below grade as can be seen on the photos on our website. Folks looking for more space, easier access (less stairs), modern conveniences and even cooking facilities find everything they need. Additionally longer, self catering stays can be easily accommodated in our garden suites.

At Abbeymoore we consider ourselves lucky that we can offer such a broad range of options to our guests and we do our best to make sure each guest enjoys their stay with us as the way they prefer.

auf Wiedersehen!

The B+B is located Close to the City Center in the wonderful neighbourhood of the Government House in a quiet street. The beautiful historic house provides several rooms and two Garden Suites. Eventhough the Garden Suites are large and have a separate Living Room with Kitchen and a nice Bathroom they are located "half Underground".
Breakfast was very good and the Service was helpful and knowledgeable about Victoria activities and Restaurants.
We usually prefer a breakfast room with all guests sitting at a single tabel to exchange experiences and ideas. This is unfortunately not the case in Abbeymore where all guests sit at small separate tables.

My husband and I stayed at Abbeymoore for three nights. Abbeymoore is an outstanding bed and breakfast inn. The accommodations were beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The owners and their staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. They were warm and friendly, and yet they did not pry into our lives.

We enjoyed the veranda, library, and spacious livingroom. WiFi was available, as well as a computer and printer. The breakfasts were gourmet and presented beautifully. Beverages, fruit, and fresh baked cookies were available 24/7. Ice was provided upon request.

If we ever revisit Victoria, it will be mainly because of Abbeymoore. I yearn to return to Abbeymoore.

This B&B is truly special. Hosts Ian and Anne know what they are doing, and a great job it is. We stayed in one of the garden rooms. The coffee was the best we've had in Canada. Breakfast was superb, with menu's, and even the wasp got great food. The restaurants recommended were spot on right for us. We walked to and from the city centre, which was a bit of a stroll, but the route was fine even after dark.

We enjoyed our stay at Abbeymoore Manor very much. It was the first time either of us had stayed at a B&B, and it was wonderful! Anne was a great hostess, and the rest of the staff were gracious and helpful. We were made to feel very comfortable. Lots of little treats and surprises to make you feel special! The only down side was having to leave the room; next time, I will have seen everything in Victoria I want to see and so will be able to stay in the room. Yippee!
