Arbutus Hill

356 Cyrl Owen Place , Victoria, BC V9E 2B6 Canada (Show map)


Located about midway between downtown Victoria and Butchart Gardens, a location that is quiet and scenic, yet within easy reach of all that Victoria has to offer. We serve a healthy, hearty, hot, home-cooked breakfast, and warm and helpful hospitality. We use environmentally friendly, biodegradable products for cleaning, laundry and bathroom supplies.

Incredible B&B with friendly, very helpful hosts, delicious breakfasts and perfect beautiful location

5 on September 22, 2015

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Arbutus Hill B&B. Jos and Donna were delightful hosts who prepared delicious and plentiful breakfasts. Their B&B was ideally located for us with a stunning mountain top view. Our queen sized bed was perfect for us....firm, yet comfortable with plenty of closet and storage space and a spacious bathroom too. We very much look forward to returning to stay here again. Many thanks for everything Jos and Donna. Warmest regards, Zoe and Don :-)

A B&B in the nature, you can see birds (small as colibri to large as woodpecker) as you have your beautiful breakfast, the room is very large and perfect, bath is enormous, breakfast menu changed every day

Excellent B & B

Hallo Jos en Donna Jammer, dat we maar 1 nacht konden blijven. Jullie wonen geweldig mooi, we voelden ons meteen thuis. We werden vriendelijk ontvangen, ondanks dat we te vroeg waren. Heerlijk geslapen en 's morgens een geweldig ontbijt. Jullie waren erg gezellig en gastvrij. Als we nog een keer in Canada zijn, komen we zeker terug. Bedankt voor alles Henk en Hanny.

Arbutus Hill Bed and Breakfast - Victoria, BC area

4.8 on September 24, 2014

We planned a stay of three nights in the Victoria area but didn't want to stay in a standard "cookie cutter" hotel. We found this wonderful bed & breakfast and couldn't have been more pleased. It is close to everything but feels like it is off in the woods. The food was excellent and the hosts were so helpful. It was very close to Butchart Gardens which was a nice extra for us, but stil very close to the activities in Victoria. We would certainly stay here again. Two of the rooms share a bathroom which was fine for us. The other has its own bathroom.

We would come back just for breakfast!

We loved our two night stay at Arbutus Hill, not a long drive from downtown Victoria and several other nearby attractions. Comfy bed, wifi, an access code so we could sneak in after watching spectacular fireworks at Butchart Gardens, and the cherry on top was delicious breakfast! Jos went above and beyond for the sake of food sensitivities. Thank you so much!

Very private, great hosts, excellent food. Room on the small side but very adequate and comfortable. Location is a little isolated, but quiet and restful. Birdwatching was great. We would stay there again.

A night at Arbutus Hill

Jos and Donna were delightful hosts for our short stay at Arbutus. We were in Victoria looking at real estate and they were incredibly helpful and patient with all our questions

Delightful, convenient and affordable

We loved this B&B. Jos and Donna are a delight and went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as could be. All of our dietary needs were accommodated over a fantastic breakfast, recipes exchanged!

Excellent in every respect. I would definitely stay again.
