Great stay at the Dashwood Manor Inn!

4.4 on September 27, 2014

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of staying at Dashwood Manor for 3 nites and truly wished I could have stayed longer.I would recommend this to a couple or single.The only slightly negative thing I can think of is that it's a tad out of the way but this only adds to the charm.It was like being at a seaside resort in England-beautiful ocean view from my room, a nice large bed to sleep in and a wonderful unrushed and well presented breakfast to start the day with.The hosts Michael and David are charming and will help you with any questions you may have.Special mention to Cora who helps with the breakfast serving and rooms-she was a delight! My room- the Fairfield- was lovely and I was lucky to see a few others on the ground floor and they were huge (former apts. I was told).Please do not hesitate to stay here-you will not be disappointed!

This turned out to be our dream B & B!

We'd never traveled to Victoria before and we choose Dashwood because it looked "close enough" without being right in the busy part of downtown. What we didn't realize until we got there was that it is in an absolutely ideal location, easy walking to the hustle and bustle of downtown, but situated in a lovely little neighborhood with its own village center. Dashwood is right on the sea with easy access down to the beach for sea glass searching and watching the amazing sunsets, and it borders Beacon Hill Park with its beautiful rose garden and fountains. The view from our room was gorgeous and the room has two comfy wing chairs placed to take best advantage of the scene. Michael and David are the quintessential hosts, they treated us like honored private guests, with soft jazz playing in our room when we arrived. They even tucked two champagne glasses and a split of champagne in our room refrigerator when they found out that it was our anniversary. Breakfasts are delicious, simple and wholesome breakfast fare with plates filled with fresh fruit. We will definitely return to Victoria and we definitely will return to Dashwood Manor!

Wonderful B&B

Dashing Weekend at Dashwood

5 on September 18, 2014

My sisters and I celebrated being together with a trip to Victoria. Our stay at Dashwood was fabulous! The location looking out over the straits was breathtaking, and the beach trail walk into downtown was perfect in every way. Michael and David, the proprietors, were so helpful in making our stay easy and enjoyable. The delicious and beautiful breakfasts kept us going all day long. I plan to stay again at Dashwood and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a special place to stay in Victoria.

Wonderful B&B

Dashwood Manor provided us with one of our most enjoyable stays during our 8 week holiday. Our room was large and comfortable, with a great sea view. Breakfast was excellent. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. We loved staying here.

Honeymoon stay at Dashwood manor September 2014

4.8 on September 11, 2014

I can not recommend this B&B enough. We were on our Honeymoon touring around the west coast of Canada. We stayed in a lot of five stars hotels along the way and the service in this B&B was exceptional and better than some of the hotels. Our breakfast was delicious. Michael and David were great hosts. If you go to Victoria you should definitely stay here. Thanks guys for your wonderful service, Jennifer & Adam

Mesmerizing, a step back in time with a beautiful ocean view

4.6 on September 10, 2014

This is a relaxing location, close enough to enjoy Victoria, but away from the crowds. We enjoyed the local neighborhood restaurants (great food) and coffee shops. The people in the community were friendly and we felt we slipped into the everyday life of Cook Village. Leisure time spent on the beach and in Beacon Hill Park was especially enjoyable. B&B owners made every effort to help us with recommendations on sightseeing and restaurants. Dashwood Manor is step back in time but with the comforts of a delightful room.

My expectations were more than met.

Staying at Dashwood Manor for the first time, the visit has turned to be an unforgettable one with my family. The staff was always extremely helpful, and the location was really great. They recommended a nice restaurant for dinner, and the breakfast at Dashwood was delicious. The view from our room was great, and very clean and comfortable, personally, I really like their decor. Overall - Outstanding!!

Amazing place all around!!
