“Take the "Theatre Package"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

All in all, this hotel offers very good value. At less than $200 per couple we had a large quiet room with lots of character in a century+ old hotel, a small bottle of Cava on arrival, a $60 dinner voucher, 2 theatre tickets at the Playhouse (play was very good) and a hot breakfast (quiche). We were also able to sit outside with friends on the hotel's front step and enjoy the weather. Our entire stay was so enjoyable that we intend returning next year.

As first time Victoria by the sea visitors we found that the Orient's Dinner/Theater package provided us a way to have dinner and an evening at the theater that we might not have done otherwise. Our room #6 (really a suite) was very comfortable and quiet even though the Inn was full on our first night. Breakfasts were hot and filling, just what a B&B should serve. Take in the theater whether you are on the package or not.

Room Tip: Room 6 is a winner.

Just stayed at this B&B for three nights. It is a great B&B in a wonderful small village. The B&B was really clean and comfortable, and the home-cooked breakfasts among the best I have had in a B&B (Make sure you try the homemade rhubarb jam). The Owners, Wendy and Richard were friendly and quite informative regarding local activities. A great stay in clean well run accomodations.

Room Tip: We had a suite which cost a little extra, but it gave us extra space.

Room #5 was a good size with a very large bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The sitting room was okay for short periods.

Our room was up two flights of stairs at the end of June. It was warm and if you forgot air out the room at night and close the windows and blinds in the day, then the room got warm. In the evening, I could hear the conversation from the next room.

The best part was the breakfast. They made a special hot treat everyday.

Room Tip: #5 is a nice room. But check if they have air-conditioning if you are going to book in the summer...

A quaint room at the top of the stairs. Calming colors, a small but adequate bathroom, comfortable bed. A view of a tidal river. We purchased a package; room, dinner and theatre tickets, and had a great time.
Victoria-by-the-Sea is a quaint charming little town. We checked out the shops (a chocolatier, candles, glass, jewelry, antiques) before heading out to dinner and theatre. Breakfast the next morning was outstanding! This was our last day on the island and the perfect way to end our stay.

Our family booked the two-bedroom suite, which has a small living room, a private bath room, one room with a king (or Queen) size bed, and the other one with two twin beds. A great set up for a family! The owners are very friendly and helpful. Although it doesn't have the ocean view from the rooms, but we really enjoyed the stay there. It was very clean, cozy, and every room has been tasteful decorated. The breakfast was fantastic as well, we got served with the baked apple french toast with some fresh fruits. I have to say, this is the best French toast I ever had. Victoria is such a quaint little town, and everything is within walking distance. The only warning is that the most restaurants close around 8pm while we were there. I just wish I ordered something at the hotel before we head out for our walk to the wharf in the evening.

We stayed only one night in this beautiful 100 yr old hotel now a B & B. Really wish we could have spent more. We had the smallest but coziest room in the house. It is very quiet little town so no noise at all. We had the most amazing homemade breakfast. Eggs benedict, fresh fruit, all served on fine dinnerware. The tea room and the whole house are filled with anitques. We sat on the porch and played checkers while waiting for breakfast. If you are staying for any length of time, this would be a perfect location as a base to discover PEI. Wendy and Richard are great hosts and go out of their way to make sure that your stay is a memorable one. Will definitely stay again when we return to PEI

Room Tip: The hotel may not sit right on the ocean but the views are extraordinary and the rooms are very well...
