Lovely for our wedding night

4.6 on July 25, 2016

We had a wonderful time at the dashwood manor, we stayed in Dorset and it was nicer than we'd imagined. Heading up the stairs through the historic manor was part of the charm. Michael and David had left us a sweet note as arranged to pop in to take a few photos between our ceremony and reception. There was also a bottle of champagne chilled and two glasses with a blackberry in them, a welcome treat! We woke up to the gorgeous ocean view and the smell of bacon. Breakfast was better than we'd hoped for and the service and the view from our table were excellent. We'll be back!


Truly Five Star Experience

5 on July 24, 2016

The Dashwood Manor Seaside Bed & Breakfast is truly a five star experience. I'll break it down into the various components: Location: The inn is located directly across the street from the beach and a park with beautiful views. It is also walking distance to a lovely little village with shops and restaurants and a short drive into town. The Inn: The inn itself is a beautiful historic one-of-a-kind mansion that has been lovingly restored. Our room was a spacious and elegant space with beautiful well-maintained wood panels and ceiling, a kitchenette and a fireplace. Even the bath products were special. The breakfast: The breakfast was made to order each morning, delicious, fresh, and beautifully presented. The Innkeepers: The innkeepers were friendly, helpful, and informative. They made excellent recommendations and reservations when needed, and were always available to answer questions but never made us feel they were hovering or intrusive. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer!


Wonderful B&B

Gorgeous location looking out over the coast. Immediate access to the beach and seaside walkway. Fantastic breakfast and lovely rooms with 19 century charm.


Excellent B&B

5 on July 20, 2016

Outstanding and very well situated B&B on the waterfront of Victoria including great oceanviews. The B&B is imbedded in a tranquil neighbourhood. It is very close to Cook Street Village or Beacon Hill Park. Victoria Downtown is within walking distance. Beach accesses are very close by, too. Second time there and we would return for a third time.


Great B&B

I had a wonderful stay at the Dashwood Manor. My husband and I came for our anniversary and Michael and David were fantastic hosts. The room was comfortable and had a phenomenal view of the Olympic Mountains. The breakfast was hardy and delicious and we got great advice on places to go and see from the hosts. They even brought up a little champagne and strawberries to help us celebrate. Can't wait to go back!

We always look to see if The Dashwood is available for our stays in Victoria. great location 2 minutes from the busy downtown yet in a spectacular location with views of the ocean ! The breakfast room is a quiet oasis and the food is an adventure and really tasty ! Our hosts are excited to share their city with us and always are asking if we're having fun.
