We had a wonderful 4 night stay and found it very comfortable and in the best location ever! Wonderful hosts and brilliant view. Our hosts were accessible when needed, well organized and very helpful. The home is a historic gem in a superb location. Thank you.

The most wonderful, warm and inviting Bed and Breakfast in Victoria and I am sure, in Canada. David and Michael are the consummate hosts who are well versed in the art of entertaining and have thought of everything. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. S. Kent

This was our first time staying in a B&B and it couldn't have gone better! Fantastic location, reasonably priced and very friendly/helpful staff.

Charming, cosy, relaxing

The B&B was very close to the ocean which made for great scenery and also great walks around the coastline. It was very quiet and relaxing which also made the stay that much better. The breakfast was very good overall and we enjoyed it, the food was cooked perfectly and was very pleasing. Lastly the room was awesome, they were spacious and our room had a very nice view of the ocean. All the things you need were provided and it was a very enjoyable stay overall.

A great stay, once again!

Beautiful manor with great ambiance in a location that is hard to beat. A selection of several delicious breakfast dishes is professionally served in the cheerful front room of the manor . All of this plus the outstanding and very attentive service makes us want to go back soon.

A truly fantastic place to stay

A wonderful character house with all the comforts of home. It has spectacular views, a fantastic location, wonderful breakfast, great service, and hands on ownership makes this one of the best places to stay in Victoria. We will definitely stay here on our next visit.

We stayed at Dashwood Manor only one night as we were returning home from a longer vacation on the Island. Michael and David are fabulous hosts whose pride in their work is obvious, our room was larger than we expected, and the location of the Inn was perfect for us: long walks along the Stait-side trail, a nearby village with a good used bookstore and several restaurants (which we did not try), and an easy walk to the Inner Harbor, government buildings and downtown Victoria. I had felt that after 5 or 6 trips I was done with Victoria but this property has made me want to return. Note: My "value" rating is based on the favorable US exchange rate. Had we paid with Can. funds, I would likely give it 4 or 5 stars.
