As a 'picky' traveller, I could not find one thing to criticize or improve on. Having stayed here twice for an extended period of time, the service, breakfasts maintained its hight quality throughout.

My husband and I spent 1 night in Sydney to be close to the airport on our return home. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of Beacon Inn. It really feels like an expensive inn yet the room rates were very reasonable. We were upgraded to a beautifully appointed room which included a fireplace and whirlpool tub. The breakfast was wonderful.

Well decorated, (not cluttered but in an older style), ample food tastefully cooked and presented but with no choice (set menu), TVs have been upgraded to thin flat screens in the 2 rooms we stayed in, ample free parking, easy walking distance to all of downtown, free wi-fi, exceptionally clean and quiet, very friendly staff. On both occasions they upgraded our reservation without cost. They try very hard to make sure you have a wonderful experience.

My husband stayed here when on business and recommended it. I have only one (minor) complaint which I'll address below but there is so much to say in a positive light. Yes, this B&B is staffed and owners don't live on the premises but that certainly did not take away from the personal service and attentiveness of all staff members. They all remembered me by name, asked about my daily routine and made some very useful suggestions.

The room was very comfortable and clean. I hate places that are less than clean and this place did not disappoint. The room has every amenity, was more spacious than most, and the staff kept it tidy and clean during my 6 day stay. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

The bedding is top quality and sleeping was so comfortable.

The TVs are the only thing that really don't fit with this fine accommodation, but it didn't bother me because I was there to enjoy Sidney and area, not watch TV. The TVs are small and old but I don't see that as a negative.

Breakfasts were always delicious and prompt. My only complaint is that the breakfast meats (something different every day) are obviously microwaved to warm them thus the meat is hard and not appetizing. But the egg dishes (eggs benedict, souffle, french toast, omelet, etc) were always perfectly done and very tasty. I also liked that they served locally made blueberry syrup and a nice berry jam.

So, my stay was a pleasure in this clean, comfortable inn with plenty of attention to detail. I can hardly wait to stay there again.

We stayed just one night at the Beacon and were impressed by the comfort and style of this mock-heritage "B&B": really a small boutique hotel with nine rooms and featuring a full breakfast -- apple crumble and french toast the morning of our visit. The service was excellent: we had thought briefly of cancelling our reservation, as my spouse came down with a light cold the night before our departure; in spite of the fact that we were "locked in" by the B&B Association rules, we were told we could negotiate a refund later if we chose not to come. The morning of our visit dawned bright and sunny and my wife was feeling better, so we went in any case and were happy we did; the staff even upgraded us at no cost to a larger room. And the rooms we saw were large and bright and tastefully furnished with accoutrements brought in by the owners from their European travels. Our only concern was cost: we realize that this kind of small inn cannot survive on motel prices, but the higher end rooms were in the range of four-star hotels in the city.

This was a wonderful B&B. My husband and I stayed here in early August, with plans to visit nearby Buchart Gardens, the local bookshops and to bike on the Gulf Islands. We loved the comfy room, with the great bathroom that had a soaker tub. Everything was impeccably clean and the staff were exceptionally helpful. Russ, the owner, was available to provide us with local information on sights, ferries and he even went out of his way to take our bikes back to the rental shop for us. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone traveling to Victoria and the surrounding area.
