We LOVED our stay at Dashwood Manor!

5 on October 27, 2015

This lovely B & B (really more of a boutique hotel) had it all! A fabulous location, right on the water, and wonderful ambiance. We stayed in the Dorset which was on the top floor and had a lovely balcony and view. The pictures on the website, as nice as they are, don't even do it justice! Even the sheets on the bed were wonderful! I loved the quaintness of the rooms and the old world charm of the house itself. How sweet to come in at the end of the night and see a tray of cookies on the desk with serviettes for a late night snack. The breakfast was to die for! Terrific presentation (yes I had to photograph it) as well as being delicious. The dining room was very elegant and I enjoyed the jazz playing softly in the background. Seriously? I didn't want to go home!

A Perfect Oceanside Getaway

My husband and I spent a weekend at Dashwood Manor a few weeks ago. The location is ideal for those who love to look out at the beauty of the ocean and also the like to see the amazing amount of active people/dog walkers enjoy this area. Directly across the street from the Dashwood is a walking path that, for walking enthusiasts will lead you right downtown (takes about 45 minutes walking). The 'manor' itself is lovely and clean. We got there early and were able to checkin ahead of time which was great. The breakfast in the morning is a hot breakfast and the food and the dining room were impressive! Michael and David were present and very helpful to us and I loved all of the personal touches eg the homemade cookies waiting for us when we got home at night! We are booked to stay there again next month and would highly recommend!

We loved our stay at Dashwood Manor. The beds and linens are comfortable, the breakfast is amazing and David and Micahel are most welcoming.

Sad to depart! Will be back soon :)

Our stay at Dashwood exceeded our already high expectations based on the website description. The dining room service was exceptional, our room was flawlessly white, tidy and cosy. We were able to admire the gorgeous view outside in chilly Autumn as the balcony was quite sheltered. The location itself is amazing as it is beside Beacon Hill park, steps away from the beach, and a 2 minute walk to shops, cafes and restaurants in Cook St Village. Attention to detail did not go unnoticed. (Keep an eye out for late night cookies!) In addition, I am celiac and was very comfortable with the meal preparation as all staff were very well informed of food allergies and intolerances. We would love to stay at Dashwood again!

Our stay at Dashwood Manor was wonderful. Michael and David are charming hosts and the service staff was always helpful with warm smiles. The Manor is excellently located, with a walk along the coast across one street and Beacon Hill Park directly in front. David and Michael provided great information on local restaurants and attractions, and the breakfasts were meticulously prepared and truly wonderful.

beautiful city and beautiful stay

The Dashwood was a wonderful place to stay not only for the location next to the ocean and the pristine neighborhood to walk, but the romantic ambience it lended for our introduction to the beautiful city of Victoria.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

Cute little B&B with an awesome view of the water and Mt Olympus. Michael made sure we knew our way around town and provided recommendations on good local restaurants. The rooms were cute and very clean. Our only regret is that we were only able to stay one night!

My husband and I stayed at the Dashwood Manor for our 25th wedding anniversary celebration. We spent 5 nights. The Manor is absolutely fabulous. The hosts are amazing accommodating, the breakfasts are delicious, and the views are outstanding. I compared prices of other accommodations within Victoria and the Dashwood Manor was a great value for what you get. I would stay there again in a heart beat and would not hesitate to recommend the Manor to anyone in the Victoria area.

It was a real pleasure to return to Dashwood for our second stay. David and Michael are superb hosts who think of everything a guest needs. Michaels breakfast was again beautifully prepared, presented and delicious. Well done men. We highly recommend Dashwood Manor
