Trutch Manor Tourist Suites
Ranked #71 of 91 Victoria B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 13, 2010

We just returned from a week's stay at Trutch Manor in Victoria, it was great! Trutch Manor is a beautiful Victorian mansion located about 5 blocks from downtown, within walking distance of local shops, restaurants, Beacon Hill Park, Government House and the ocean - no need to rent a car here. Les and Marilyn Tipton are terrific hosts, making us feel right at home with a five star breakfast each morning, and arranging for any excursions, sightseeing tours and restaurant reservations. Trutch Manor is immaculate, warm and friendly. We would highly recommend it to any couple wishing a quiet getaway, but close enough within walking to many of Victoria's sights.

I agree with all the other reviews regarding the food (outstanding!), the beauty of the Manor as well as the area, convenience, and value. The reason I would not return is because of the demeaning, rude attitude of the owner, Les. He is someone who needs to get out of the hospitality industry because if you cannot be patient and kind to tourists who happen to be paying high prices to stay in your B&B, you should change your line of work. He snapped at us several times, over MINOR things. Marilyn on the other hand is welcoming and charming. I think he needs to take some customer service or even anger management training as it is very problematic behaviour. Would not return or recommend. Sorry.

We were delighted with Trutch Manor. The rooms were bright and decorated with interesting antiques. Comfortable beds and furniture. The kitchenette was very useful. Marilyn and Les oriented us to the neighborhood and many sites, shopping opportunities and restaurants within walking distance, complete with a map. They are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was outstanding, thanks to Marilyn's gourmet touch, and the conversation dynamic thanks to Les's sense of humour. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and stayed an extra night. We will return, and we heartily recommend this bed and breakfast establishment .

Again, ' The Trutch' lived up to our expectations. This was our fourth visit in eight years or so and our recent stay was just as enjoyable as the first. Les, the owner who has consistently been most personable and welcoming remembered us from previous visits. Maralyn's breakfasts are to die for! The selection varies daily with the focus being on fresh items produced locally. We love the location amid all the lovely older heritage style homes with the downtown area being within walking distance ( a good but most pleasant walk) and the the proximity of the quaint Oak Bay village. Am already looking forward to our next visit!

We have stayed at Trutch Manor on more than one occasion and we have enjoyed every visit. Les and Marilyn are great hosts with a wealth of knowledge about Victoria and the surrounding area. Our last stay was for 10 days and Marilyn never served the same breakfast twice. The breakfasts are home made and delicious, you may need to skip lunch because of the generous portions. We have always felt welcome and we appreciate Les' candor and sense of humour. The suites have all the amenities that you would need and the location is great. We highly recommend this B&B and look forward to our next visit.

Great location a 10 minute walk to the Inner Harbour. Our suite was spacious and clean the only problem was we couldn't stay longer. Marilyn produced wonderful breakfasts and Les gave us plenty of ideas on where to go during our stay, make sure you take Les's tour of Victoria views are fantastic.
