Great B&B

The inn was wonderful. Very nice rooms, convenient to Bouchardt Gardens. The only thing that happened negative was that the rooms that I was guaranteed were not available. This actually worked out better since the rooms we were given was on the ground floor. A member of my party had a bad knee.

Fantastic stay at the Beacon Inn

What a lovely B & B. Every little detail was thoughtful, from the homemade brownies, coffee/tea station and sherry in the lounge, to the sprig of fresh rosemary in the bathroom, to the bath amenities and decor. Delicious breakfast, helpful and friendly inn keepers, lots of information available about Sydney (we appreciated the book of menus). Walking distance to downtown, yet located on a quiet street. Comfortable bed--everything was perfect! Would definitely recommend to anyone spending time in lovely Sydney by the Sea.

Consistently excellent

My most recent stay at the Beacon Inn was wonderful, as usual! The setting is elegant and welcoming, and the staff are consistently helpful and friendly. The breakfasts are delicious and the rooms are gorgeous, just like the remainder of the Inn itself. I've been going to the Beacon Inn approximately twice per year for the past five years, approximately, and it feels like a second home to me. I hope to return many more times in future.

Staying at the Beacon Inn exceeded my expectations. We were warmly greeted, our room was uber comfortable and the 'celebration basket' was just perfect. And then to top it all off we had a spectacular breakfast. When I go back to Sidney I will definitely stay there again and I would recommend it to any and all my friends.

Beyond our expectations!

Our 35th wedding anniversary at Sidney and the Beacon Inn could not have been anymore wonderful. Honestly we had some hesitation about staying at a B&B. Decided to take a chance after reading on-line reviews and getting a recommendation from the owner of the local whale watching company. Sure thrilled that we listened! Beacon Inn is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay, and the room decor is very impressive. And gotta say, the service provided by Warren was AMAZING and unsurpassed. He is courteous, kind, soft spoken, a great cook and so very welcoming - he made the experience special. THANK YOU WARREN!!!

Lovely B & B in Sidney

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!
