“Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is our second visit to the Ashcroft House B & B and as usual it was wonderful. Dave and Pauline are extremely accommodating and gracious. They let us stow our stuff in our room even before it was ready, so we could go on a bike ride. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the extra scones made a nice afternoon snack. When we needed to disassemble our tandem, they allowed us to use the front lawn to do this and leave our bags on their secure porch, even though we had "checked out." We highly recommend this B & B!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Cotswold Room and it is spacious and cozy!

With little experience with B&B's, Ashcroft House was extremely pleasant. The bed was enormous and made me feel like the princess in The Princess and the Pea. The room was generously large given the era of the original home. It was near the shore and we enjoyed a scenic (though windy!) walk. The four course breakfast was so carefully laid we felt like royalty. Nice company at breakfast too although I'm sure the proprietors can't guarantee that. ;-D

We stayed in the Cotswold Room which is spacious and cozy and which has a nice private bathroom. The room was very clean and comfortable. Outside the room was a fridge (with free bottled water), and coffee maker + hot water for tea; the room had also its own coffee maker.
The breakfast was delicious with more than enough to eat and you are also provided with small bags to save e. g. a scone for later. Paulanne and David are such nice hosts, that you feel at home.
The Ashcroft House is close to the beach and downtown Victoria is within walking distance through a nice neighbourhood or along the beach.

Thank you to Paulanne and David for a memorable time at their B&B. The Sheldon room has the most amazing bed and pillows. Like sleeping on a cloud!! The breakfasts were gourmet and plentiful.....and then they send you out for the day with bags of fresh scones and other bakery items. We would definitely stay there again!!

Room Tip: Loved the Sheldon room.

We were so happy we stayed at this B&B, it was everything we hoped. Paulanne and Davis are wonderful hosts, and the location is perfect, close to the downtown,ocean and a great park. The rooms are lovely and a very comfortable bed, its in a quiet area as well so a good nights sleep is a given. Now I can't say enough about the fantastic breakfasts. You have to pace yourself or finishing the last course can be a problem. Take advantage of the little baggies that Paulanne puts out and save those muffins and scones for lunch or a snack.
This is a place I would return to next time in Victoria.

Kudos to Paulanne and David as wonderful hosts! Couldn't have been better! So pleasant and great balance of being helpful when you need them and allowing privacy and alone time when you needed it. Great location. Only downside is the bathrooms (private but small) but I would trade that every time for the location and other features of the room and house. Thanks again Paulanne and David! I would recommend you to everyone!

Lovely place to stay in Victoria, one block from a beautiful walking path along the water. Our hosts took good care of us providing reccomendatiions and a delicious breakfast. The bed was comfortable and the rooms and home were nicely decorated.
