My granddaughter and I were traveling together on the occasion of her 21st birthday. Our four night stay at Dashwood Manor came toward the end of our two week trip and we thoroughly enjoyed Victoria, Vancouver Island, and this B&B seaside inn thanks to the exceptional service provided by our hosts. The room (Camelot) was a good size for the two of us and overlooks the bay and the Cascade mountain range in the distance. The wifi worked very well. We made good use of the refrigerator. We never even turned on the tv, but can attest to the comfort of the sofa and chairs nearby. Camelot is in the third floor attic, so some may be put off by the stairs or low hanging roof lines. We were not as climbing the stairs added to our daily exercise. Daily exercise is a good thing after the ample and beautifully prepared breakfast served here. Although removed from downtown, Dashwood Manor is within walking distance of several restaurants for lunch and dinner and shopping areas. We walked all over Victoria and one day measured more than nine miles. That was excessive, but so worth it to walk along the seaside, through an historic cemetery, up the hill to the Lieutenant Governor's home and gardens, further up the hill to Craigdarroch Castle, and back to the inn for a rest before walking up the street to dinner. Another lovely walk is along the David Foster harbor pathway, an extension of the national park trail, that takes one along the fascinating Victoria coast. Our hosts arranged tickets to gardens we wished to visit, a carriage ride, and dinner reservations. They provided annotated maps. They highly recommended the nearby Beacon Hill Park and we concur with all their recommendations. All of the green buttons in this review should read "outstanding" but no matter how many times I clicked, the site would accept only "exceeded my expectations."

Just a totally wonderful vacation. David and staff gave us great suggestions for things to do and places to eat while in Victoria. Had a great view of the ships coming in and the kite festival. Even saw a submarine.

Our 3 night stay at Dashwood Manor B&B last week was absolutely fantastic. The B&B is a classic historical landmark, well appointed and maintained. The views from our room of the ocean, directly across the street, were amazing. Most of all, the attention to detail, service and hospitality from David and Michael was truly a memorable experience. I highly recommend Dashwood Manor and will definitely return.

I loved everything about this B&B. The 2 most important areas exceeded my expectations: quality bed linens and clean bathroom. The bed was so comfortable, I found it difficult to get out in the morning. My room (Somerset) had a private balcony with a view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Olympic Mountains in the distance. Plenty of windows allowed great light throughout the room and the large bathroom. Breakfast service was impeccable. Finally, the location of the Dashwood meant that I had to walk through Beacon Hill Park to get into the downtown/Inner Harbour area. This was a lovely walk, with fountains, peacocks, flowers, grassy meadows, trees, and even deer. It made sure that I got lots of exercise each day, which is a good thing. A taxi from downtown to Dashwood Manor was under $10.00 Canadian, if you prefer not to walk. Great B&B, and I will return, and recommend to friends and family.

Michael and David are the perfect hosts. The property is unique and has a wonderful ocean view. The atmosphere is welcoming and calming. I appreciated having detailed restaurant suggestions in the information book that is in the room.

The house is taken care of so well it is like stepping back in time. Innkeepers were very friendly and made us feel right at home.

The hosts are very welcoming and the location is great. Just a 10 -15 minute walk from the downtown area, Dashwood Manor sits on the very edge of western Canada on the strait of Juan de Fuca. The breakfast room is light and airy, and the breakfasts are delicious and presented with flair.Our room was spacious and well suppled.
