Excellent breakfast

Room was comfortable and breakfast was outstanding!

Our 2nd visit to Dashwood Manor was as enjoyable as the first

Our stay 5 years ago, under different management, was superb. I was hoping nothing had changed and I don't think it did. Still a beautiful building and view, great location, warm and welcoming hosts, delicious breakfast. The price was very fair considering the quality of the experience.

Fantastic Bed and Breakfast

It was an incredible experience to stay at the Dashwood Manor, and the hosts were wonderful. The third floor room we were in had a view that couldn't be beat, and the breakfasts were a dream to come down to in the morning. I appreciated the timings of the breakfasts and the advice from the hosts on activities in the area. The location was great - across the street one way to the beach, and across the street the other way to the beautiful Beacon Hill Park. Well worth it.

Charming B&B

Michael, David and the whole staff was so kind and helpful, we felt at home and relaxed. The whole breakfast experience was delightful! The perfect start of each day.

A lovely stay away from the crowds

Dashwood Manor is a delightful B&Ban easy twenty minutes' walk from the Inner Harbour and downtown Victoria. I recommend the Oxford Grand, a first-floor suite with a glorious view of the water. Excellent breakfast in a sunny room. Cook Street Village just up the street has shops, restaurants, and a pub. A great get-away from the touristy parts of Victoria.

Great stay with a view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca!

This was our second stay at the Dashwood. David and Michael and the staff were wonderful. We'd certainly like to return.

We enjoyed our second stay at Dashwood Manor. The Bed and Breakfast was under new management but the experience was as good as our first visit. We look forward to another visit for a special occasion.

A wonderful B&B in Victoria

4.6 on August 06, 2015

Michael and David operate a top notch B&B . The room was comfortable and attractive. We lived the location as it is 2 minutes to a beautiful walking path by the water and 2 minutes from Beacon Hill Park.

Wonderful stay at the Dashwood Manor

Extremely clean and peaceful, friendly staff and wonderful location minutes from the heart of the city. The view of the water is incredible.

Seaside Wonder

5 on July 31, 2015

My recent stay at the Dashwood Manor was simply, wonderful. The house itself is ideally situated with the sea on one side and renound Beacon Hill Park on the other. Set apart from the hustle and bustle of Victoria, surrounded by an a plethora of lovely shops, restaurants and cafes, it is ideally situated for any traveller. Upon checking in I was greeted by one of the owners, David who engages me in genuine and kind conversation, prior to showing me to my room. To be called a room is an understatement, what with the crystal chandeliers surrounded by a beautifully coiffured ceiling and magnificent wood work. The room featured a large sleigh bed, fireplace, jacuzzis, as well as a sitting room. Off of the main room was a small kitchenette and a three piece washroom. Awaking in the morning refreshed after a great sleep, I rose to see the ocean pounding away at the cods that draw a barrier between the Pacific and that of Victoria. Dressing and making my way to breakfast I was greeted by the most lovely serving staff, offered a full breakfast including my choice of eggs and bacon to pancakes to smoked salmon. The Manor proved to be more than a place to stay, more of a magical experience where one felt transported back in time to a day where hospitality was truly at its prime, set in a beautiful surrounding. This b&b will on the top of my list to refer friends and family to when passing through or visiting Victoria.
