We stayed in the Newport Room for four nights. There is no TV in the room, but we enjoyed meeting other guests in the common room. As with other multi-room guest houses with just one TV in a common area, guests were afraid to put the TV on for fear of disturbing the other guests who were reading or doing crossword puzzles. This suited us just fine. The guest house has a wonderful library and we both managed to finish a book during our stay.
Breakfast time is flexible within a time window, and Egle is also flexible in terms of adapting the menu to suit your own food preferences and allergies. Giving us a scone or muffin to go each day was a nice touch.
You can walk from the guest house into Oak Bay village or to Oak Bay Marina. The OBGH is in truly a wonderful location and we would not hesitate to stay there again.
