We'd never stayed at a bed and breakfast before going to Abbeymoore, I didn't think it was the sort of thing I would enjoy, but the reviews we read were so glowing that my girlfriend and I decided to try it instead of a hotel when we were up in Vancouver for five nights. I'm really glad we did, because I loved it.

Where to start? The Rose room was amazing, just a beautiful room with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The breakfasts were delicious and healthy and we've been trying to recreate some of our favorite dishes at home ever since we got back. I really enjoyed all of the little touches like the travel books in the library, the movies in the living room, the cordial for night caps, the selection of teas and the electric kettle (you were right Ian, we ended up buying ourselves one for Christmas). The location is great too, it's a really nice neighborhood next to the Government House and near Craigdarroch Castle, just a quick walk to downtown Victoria.

The service though was above and beyond what we were expecting. Ian, Anne, and Michelle were all extremely friendly and helped us out with things like directions, restaurant recommendations, suggestions for activities, crossword puzzle clues in the morning, medicine when I started coming down with a cold, a bucket of cider on ice when we decided to stay in one day. By the end of our trip I didn't want to leave!

I'd recommend Abbeymoore to anyone, I couldn't imagine staying there and not having a wonderful time.

Room Tip: The Rose room is amazing. Great bed, fire place, and a huge shower.

Thanks David! What a great review! It's always fabulous for us to get 1st time B&B'ers so we can show B&B's are the "Better Way To Stay". Hope you are feeling better!

Cheers - Ian

We saw the reviews prior to our trip and we were really excited and expectations were high - but the impeccable service, charming interiors and indulgent breakfasts blew us away.

The moment we stepped into the manor and was greeted by the jolly Ian, we were charmed by the festive, warm, cozy interior and of course, Ian's cherry greeting :) We've also read about the daily baked bites, snacks and beverages available in the dining room throughout the day. So we snapped up some macaroons before checking into our room.

Location: It's a 20-min walk to downtown. Or a quick 3-5min cab ride for 9 to 10 bucks.

Room: We stayed in the Lilac room. Bathroom was much bigger than we imagined. Bed was really comfy with layers of velvety sheets. One thing that surprised us was the sheets smelling like candy! I really liked a red furry throw that was on the bed and asked Ian & Anne where they got it from. Apparently it was from Costco and pretty cheap so they decided to give it to me as a gift - thanks a mil!

Breakfast: Anne is definitely a talented chef. We look forward to breakfast every day. There's a nicely printed menu (with a small section introducing new guests / bidding farewell to older ones). There's coffee, a variety of teas, juice selection, 1st course and main course. What a treat! Ian & Anne were also kind enough to scale the portions down slightly for those who have a smaller appetite in the morning.
We overheard Ian saying that they try very hard not to repeat breakfasts for guests. The record was something like 27 days with a different breakfast menu each day for a long-staying guest!

We'll be recommending Abbeymoore to our friends. Really sad to leave but we hope to visit again soon :)

We've just finished 3 nights at Abbeymoore visiting family in Victoria BC and taking in Christmas in this lovely city. This Inn is one of the best we've stayed in and I can't recommend it enough. Ian, Anne and Michelle are wonderful hosts and looked after us from the moment we arrived. We stayed in the Rose Room and its probably the best Christmas room you could imagine. Lovely fireplace in the corner, amazing period furniture but with all of the modern conveniences from a king side bed to a rain head shower. Breakfasts were first rate 3 course experiences - Anne does a lovely omelette and don't miss the homemade thick cut marmalade. The location is perfect for us. Close to downtown - 10 minute drive at most and close to our family so its perfect. As well, the neighborhood is a wonderful place to take a walk about. First rate.

Room Tip: The Rose Room is the best in our opinion, especially for winter.

Although we only stayed for a night, we had a lovely time. From the warm welcome, to the cozy bedroom and the amazing, sinfully good breakfast, we enjoyed every moment. I loved reading my book in the morning in the common living room downstairs with soft jazz music in the background. I just can't wait for the next time we can visit!

Outstanding overall charm/character of the building, comfort, food quality/section, location and hospitality from Ian! If you're looking for relaxation and a experiential stay in Victoria this is the option, we'll be back! Jason
