My husband and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary and wanted something special. We choose the Abbeymoore because of the reviews and it looked great on the website. We walked 3 blocks from the bus stop on Fort St. in the unusually cold Victoria weather, the house was decorated with lights for Christmas. Anne greeted us at the door with a welcoming smile and the house was warm and cozy. We were so surprised by the all that we saw. The house is so very charming, with the fireplace going and the Christmas decorations made it even more exciting. She showed us around the house and made us feel right at home. Our room (The Iris...which is in the front right of the house, with wonderful sunlight) was ready and waiting for us. The pictures on the website are lovely but when you are there it is so beautiful. We went out for the day and walked around downtown and went to the museum. The weather was so cold we decided to go back to the house and order some dinner and rest. Anne went out of her way to help us find just the right food to order. In the morning coffee was ready at 7:30 and I went downstairs in my Abbeymoore robe and poured a cup for my husband and I chose hot tea. Breakfast was served at 8:30 and we had stuffed French toast, bacon and fruit. The service and the food was spectacular! On Saturday we decided to walk to the castle which is on the next block over and then take the bus to Chinatown and Downtown for shopping. Came home late and our room had been cleaned and Anne had left a anniversary card with Truffles on our bed for us (Thank You! it was so sweet!) The bed was comfortable, the claw foot tub/shower was nice and we loved how the sunshine was in the room in the morning as we showered. Sunday morning breakfast was served by the ever so kind Ian, Eggs Benny with salmon, asparagus spears, tomatoes, yogurt, granola & fruit...oh my! We only stayed for 2 nights and wished we had a few more days just to hang out and relax at the house but we are already planning on taking a summer trip and will definitely be staying at the Abbeymoore. Everything was PERFECT!
