We arrived from up Island, and our stay was only for two days, but this was an excellent choice. We wanted to stay away from the sterile chain hotels, with their "cookie cutter" rooms and amenities. Our choice of Coles Bay Resort was excellent, from the surroundings to the superlative breakfast in the morning!
I would highly recommend Coles Bay Resort, (and in fact have already done so among friends who regularly travel to the Victoria area).
We wanted a comfortable and quiet place near Butchart Gardens. Coles Harbour was that and more from Karey's delicious croissants in the morning to the lovely walk down to the beach area to watch the sunset. It was a quick drive to the Gardens and to the many restaurants in the area. Quite a memorable visit - thanks!
Amazing hosts who truly care about their guests! The cottage was superb and the preparation for our arrival was outstanding. Thought and care put into every detail. The morning croissants and fruit were a great way to start our day.
We stayed in the beautiful cottage/suite for one night prior to catching an early morning flight from Victoria airport a short 5 minute drive away. It was the end of our ten day vacation on the island and it was just what we needed in every way. Karey was so accommodating and kind. The suite was extremely clean and well equipped, and the beds were incredibly comfortable. We arrived to find all the comforts of home; plush towels, high quality bed linens and even a pack and play for our granddaughter to sleep in and fresh baked cookies out of the oven. Karey has literally thought of everything to make the stay a little piece of heaven. Thank you so much Karey.
What an amazing place!! The owners were extreamly accommodating and would try and help in any way they could. Very nice couple.
The place itself was very peasful and just a two minute walk to the beach. Very clean and had everything you would need or want.
Stayed here for a few nights, unit is a newly renovated spacious suite with two bedrooms, separate living room and a new kitchen. Hosts are very gracious and polite and provide a wonderful breakfast and respected privacy. Absolutely peaceful location on a side street near the water. I would highly recommend for a small family or someone needing a restful place in a warm setting .
This is a great location for a getaway to unwind from the city and explore beautiful Vancouver Island! The owners really make you feel at home and while we stuck with the included continental breakfast, it included freshly-baked muffins, toast, delicious fresh fruit and more and was delivered whatever time you set. There was also an excellent assortment of coffee, teas, and snacks available in the room. TV's and Netflix use are included so it is a perfect place to relax!
There is a beach with a stunning view of a bay and islands only a 5 minute walk away - great for a picnic or to watch the sunset. We took a taxi to/from the Sidney Ferry Terminal which was really easy and also took a taxi (~10 mins, $15) to the nearby transit station to catch a bus to downtown Victoria which worked great. Overall, this was an amazing place to stay in a great location!
