A Treasure with Special Touches

5 on September 24, 2016

If you are looking for a quiet space with beautifully presented breakfasts and special touches like home-baked cookies before retiring for the night, this is the place for you. My room faced the ocean and the quaint surroundings included everything I needed. If I were missing something, I'm sure one of the two personable owners or their capable staff would have raced to get it for me. The location is great with Beacon Hill Park across the street and some fun shops and great places to eat just a short walk away. Loved my stay and will definitely be back.

Can't be Beat!!

Nicest B&B we've ever stayed at. Just charming with a large room, comfy bed and ocean view. Michael and David went above and beyond in helping us with great recommendations that just suited what we were looking for. Their breakfasts were a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach, made to order every morning and served by charming young lady who was equally helpful. I'd definitely stay here again. Don't miss it.

Best B&B of our trip

4.4 on September 19, 2016

On our trip from Calgary through the Rockies to Vancouver Island we stayed in some very nice B&Bs. But this one was really outstanding. The location right at the sea was great, you could experience stunning sunsets just some steps away and after a short walk through Beacon Hill Park you are right in downtown. The rooms (we had the room "Cambridge") are lovingly and modernly furnished. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. The hosts Michael & David are very friendly and supportive and do their best to help you plan your day. Victoria was one of the best places of our trip and whenever we come back, we will definatelybook Dashwood Manor again.

This is an exceptional property; located near the ocean and Beacon Hill Park . Within walking distance of the central city and harbour. Breakfasts are divine. With the American dollar now at a very favorable exchange rate against the Canadian dollar - an incredible bargain!

The ideal B&B

Our group had the best of times and this was largely due to the beautiful Dashwood manor rooms and the wonderful service from our friendly hosts and staff.

Great B&B in Victoria

A lovely place.

Michael and David know how to take care of their guests. The heritage house feels like home and they have thought of every convenience. The breakfast was full of options and was delicious. They are available if you need them, but they know how to respect solitude. Well done, I might make my visit a yearly occurrence.

Perfect stay

Beautiful home in a beautiful location. Daniel was so kind and helpful to us and the other guests. Our suite had wonderful eclectic décor and a huge bathroom with a soaking tub. We felt welcome and taken care of by our attentive hosts. We will stay at the Dashwood again!
