Lovely B & B in Sidney

3.8 on January 19, 2016

We enjoyed our stay at the Beacon Inn. It is a nice location to enjoy Victoria and the Saanich Peninsula without being in the city. We were pleased with the quality of the rooms and the service. We would not hesitate to return there.

Great stay!

The old-fashioned style of the Inn was lovely - totally comfortable and cosy. The soaker tub in the bathroom was super. It felt like staying in someone's historic manor house - nice change from hotels. Very friendly and accommodating staff. I would stay here again.

A delightful spot

Beacon Inn is a delightful place to stay; we have stayed on more than one occasion and refer it to our friends. The ambience is warm and welcoming, the décor is tasteful and the breakfast is delicious. A great place to know about in Sidney.

Brief stay

Pretty little place, barely got to enjoy it. Got in late and had to leave at 4:30 the next morning for our flight out. Didn't get to enjoy breakfast, I'm sure it was good.

Beautiful hotel

Nice, clean room with a marvelous bed and a great bathroom. Very good service with lots of inviting, welcoming touches such as brownies, a sherry decanter and a coffee maker that makes truly HOT coffee. Everything was very clean and well cared for.

We stayed here the the night before flying out of Victoria. The room was beautiful and very spacious. The breakfast was very good. The location is excellent both for walking around Sidney and for getting to the airport easily.
