Wonderful rooms, great breakfast, superb location

This bed and breakfast are located on a beautiful stretch of the beach- the views are amazing and the rooms are lovely. Michael and David are the best hosts ever! They are helpful, kind and Michael makes amazing breakfasts!

A rare find!

This was my second visit this year and, as always, was so enchanted. Michael and David are warm, caring and genuinely welcoming. You feel more like 'family' rather than as guests. The Manor is exquisitely furnished and maintained with beautiful gardens. The fabulous location directly across the Strait allows for lovely walks by the water, Beacon Hill Park, and a short walk to downtown Victoria. The Cook Street Village which houses the Manor has many delightful independent shops and vendors. I cant wait to return. Thank you fellas!

A wonderful place to stay

The Dashwood is a wonderful place to stay in Victoria! I can't recommend it enough. The breakfasts are wonderful, the rooms are lovely. The breakfasts are amazing. And the views are gorgeous. It's right beside Beacon Hill park and has lovely areas to walk.

Gluten free gods!

David and Michael are warm, informative and gracious hosts. The manor is steeped in history and has everything you need for a relaxing visit. But honestly, what will bring us back is their sumptuous and thoughtful gluten free breakfasts! I'd all but given up on having a yummy breakfast but at Dashwood I was served the most amazing gluten free warm and delicious breakfast donut, cinnamon bun and blueberry muffin and those were just the beginning! Many thanks David and Michael! We'll be back!

First Class Hospitality and Accomodations!!

Enjoyed a 3 day stay and visit. Michael and David were wonderful hosts with impressive attention to detail, a fantastic breakfast, and super comfortable rooms. Lisa should also be complimented as a key member of the team! Will not hesitate to recommend and we look forward to our next stay in Victoria.

Arrived late, to find everything set up and ready for us. Nice spacious room, with all the fluff. Woke up to a beautiful view of the ocean and mountains. Amazing made to order breakfast then strapped on the running shoes. David spent time with us, showing us where we should go and then we walked, walked, walked. Beautiful 3 days. You could not ask for any better hosts, thank you Michael & David!

wonderful location and comfortable B&B

We had a wonderful stay at the Dashwood B&B. The rooms were comfortable with amazing views overlooking the water, everyone was extremely helpful in recommending sights to see and restaurants that were very good. The breakfast was outstanding. I would highly recommend the Dashwood for a comfortable get-a-way.

Charming get away , great surrounding

The location of this charming Hertage Manor is hard to beat, especially if you like walking as we do. I It is right across the street from the ocean , a short walk to quaint Cook Street Village and a bit longer walk to downtown , the harbour etc. The rooms are individually and tastefully furnished with antiques in keeping with the ambiance of the Manor. Brekfast is a great start for the day, served in a cheerful parlour with views across the water. All items of the menus are absolutely delicious and professionally presented. Some years ago we had been at this B&B and are excited to see how much it has improved. Michael and David, the new owners , are great hosts, very professionally, friendly and accommodating. We will be back!

We LOVED our stay at Dashwood Manor!

This lovely B & B (really more of a boutique hotel) had it all! A fabulous location, right on the water, and wonderful ambiance. We stayed in the Dorset which was on the top floor and had a lovely balcony and view. The pictures on the website, as nice as they are, don't even do it justice! Even the sheets on the bed were wonderful! I loved the quaintness of the rooms and the old world charm of the house itself. How sweet to come in at the end of the night and see a tray of cookies on the desk with serviettes for a late night snack. The breakfast was to die for! Terrific presentation (yes I had to photograph it) as well as being delicious. The dining room was very elegant and I enjoyed the jazz playing softly in the background. Seriously? I didn't want to go home!
