Fantastic stay at Dashwood Manor B&B

4.2 on May 18, 2015

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.

Great place to stay!

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.

Great place to stay in Victoria

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.

Best B & B

Wonderful B & B. Rooms are first rate and are comparable to a boutique hotel. Michael and David are excellent hosts with a wealth of information. I highly recommend the Dashwood and will stay there the next time I'm in Victoria. My new home away from home.

A fantastic spot along the waters edge, and beside the Beacon Hill Park. Stayed in the Dorset and had a beautiful view of the Strait for morning and evening viewing. The park provides a great place for a stroll to look at the flowers, watch the Herons. Michael and David are great hosts that provide a welcoming atmosphere to the Bed and Breakfast, and helpful suggestions on both the dining and activities in the Victoria area. As for the Breakfast, excellent is the only word that can describe it, both from the food served, to the view from the dining room, to the service provided. Thank You Michael and David for making our stay in Victoria enjoyable

Beautiful heritage house

Bathroom very small. Hard to manoeuvre in. Wasted space for jet tub in main room. Noisy pipes and neighbourhood. Could hear voices at all hours. Hosts are great as was the breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here one night in the only room that was available, the Cambridge. It was lowith quite spacious with windows overlooking the ocean. It had the unfortunate big acrylic whirlpool tub in the corner of the room. We always grit our teeth when we see this in an old historic home. The bathroom in this suite is quite awful. It is tiny with an unbelievably cramped shower (and I'm a small person, my husband wouldn't have fit). Nevertheless, we loved the room which had a very comfortable bed, nice linens and furniture. The breakfast was extremely good. There is quite a good choice and the dining room is very pleasant withbits views of the ocean. The owners here are exactly what you hope for when staying at a B&B: attentive, personable and professional. We enjoyed chatting with David very much. In summary, we look forward to returning to Dashwood Manor for a longer stay, hopefully in a different suite with a nicer bathroom.
