Wonderful hosts + great location + fantastic breakfast

4.4 on July 23, 2016

My wife and I booked fairly a last minute trip to Victoria and were lucky enough to find a room at the Abbeymore. It's a lovely spot, in a cute residential neighborhood with beautiful homes, but a short walk (~2.5 km) from the harbor. We stayed in one of their garden-level suites, which were all that were available on such short notice. The room was very clean and comfortable, and would be perfect for a longer stay as it had a full kitchen. Next time, I'll try to book earlier and stay in one of the more traditional rooms upstairs. Our hosts, Anne & Ian, were lovely. Very warm and welcoming, gave us a lay of the land, very responsive to anything we needed. The breakfasts were delicious and substantial, in a sunny room at the front of the house. The front porch was probably my favorite part, a great place to just relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the amazing Vancouver island weather. Thank you!


Lives up to its incredible rating

Oh yes, this is perfection in the hospitality industry. The owners know the meaning of customer service and they are there to please you in every way they can. This beautiful heritage building is well maintained in and out. It was dreamy to come back after a day’s outing and walk up the idyllic path, past the flowers, to our suite on the bottom floor. The well-stocked kitchen allowed us to make a quick meal and dine in the comfort of our cozy living room. Everything was so impeccably clean. And the breakfasts, on my, just divine! Plus chocolate chunk cookies to enjoy in the afternoon and a glass of port to end the day in the grand living room. On cooler evenings, one has the option to sit beside the fire, all set up and ready to go with a light of the match. No detail overlooked here. Located in a safe neighborhood, it is a 25 minute walk to downtown. Street parking is available in addition to the lot beside the house.


Our favorite B&B

5 on July 07, 2016

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in Victoria at Abbeymoore Manor. Anne and the whole staff was so welcoming, friendly and helpful during our quick stay--one of the staff helped us figure out the bus changes to get back and forth to Butchart Gardens. The whole feel of the Inn and our room was wonderful and we even had a heated bathroom floor (ok, now I want one in my house). The breakfast was great, without feeling we couldn't eat for another week. Abbeymoore has a bunch of open snacks and drinks which made us feel right at home. After staying at more than a dozen B&B's, mostly in the US, Abbeymoore is our favorite!!


Fantastic Service

4.6 on June 29, 2016

We stayed at the Abbeymoore B&B in June 2016. We spent 4 nights and we were not disappointed. The rooms were very clean, well kept and inviting. The breakfasts in the morning were outstanding. The location of the Abbeymoore was very convenient for visiting the many attractions in and around Victoria. Finally the staff were excellent and very helpful with everything. I would highly recommend the Abbeymoore Manor. Thank you for a wonderful mini vacation. - Kevin & Lori Holland


Very professionally operated in an extremely friendly way

Not just a mom and pop operation which provided very friendly service without being intrusive.


Excellent!

Stayed twice, once back in November 2015 and again this year for my birthday. The rooms and location are amazing, the service is outstanding, and the food is absolutely delicious. I'm not one to normally get up in time for breakfast, but I was always up a bit early to make sure I didn't miss out on whatever special the chef was cooking up that day. Can't say enough good things! -John


The best by far

5 on June 04, 2016

We stayed at Abbeymoore Manor about seven years ago and really enjoyed so much about our experience. Since then we tried a different B and B each year in Victoria but none compared. This year we went back to Abbeymoore because it is by far one of the best B and Bs to stay at. The owners have thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable from robes and book lights at the side of the bed to the freshly baked cookies and snacks that you can take away with you for the day. The breakfasts are a culinary delight and Ian and Anne go out of their way to make your stay memorable. The staff is always friendly and keen to answer questions, point you to local restaurants or suggest sights to see. This is one B and B that I would highly recommend.


Beautiful inn, delicious food, go above and beyond to make you feel welcome

5 on May 12, 2016

My wife and I stayed at Abbeymoore over a long weekend and had a lovely time. The inn itself is a gorgeous home that is very well kept and beautifully decorated. Our room was very comfortable and big, with a huge and comfortable bed. The breakfasts each morning were fresh and delicious - homemade scones, fresh fruit and yogurt, omelettes, fritattas. But above all, Anne and Ian really made the stay extra enjoyable by their warm hospitality and willingness to go the extra mile to attend to our every need and make our stay wonderful.


Phenomenal

4.6 on May 10, 2016

We stayed for 5 nights in one of the garden suites. This heritage home was so charming, while modernized for comfort. Simply lovely. This home away from home was everything we hoped for and more. An incredible quiet beautiful historic area of Victoria. The breakfasts were like none I've ever had, incredible. The hosts and staff were so welcoming and kind and helpful. We walked a lot, as beautiful parks are close. The whole area/neighborhood was a pleasure to stroll through. Beautiful houses everywhere, with yards to match. Walked to restaurants two evenings for very nice dinners. Lovely veranda to spend some leisure time reading, having tea. Staying at Abbeymoore is an experience you don't want to miss out on.


Best B&B in Victoria

3.8 on April 03, 2016

We stayed for 3 wonderful nights at this B&B and we will definitely be back. Abbeymoore Manor is located close to everything. We road our bikes and left our vehicle parked for most of the time. Very clean, great food and amazing hosts. Thank you.
