Spectacular rooms with generous hosts

4.0 on July 28, 2014

We stayed In The Windsor oak room and it was stunning. The hosts were generous and helpful, very personable and friendly. The location of this inn is excellent- many lovely shops in reasonable walking distance. Parking may be an issue if you have a large vehicle but this is true for many Victoria inns. Breakfast was tasty and beautifully presented. We will DEFINATELY return to this lovely inn.

Perfect Place to Stay

My wife and I stayed in the Oxford Grand room. The room is very large and a great view of the mountains and water. The breakfasts has a lot of food including many different fresh fruits. We definitely want to come back here again.

Fun stay in scenic BC

My mother and I stayed in the Chelsea room on our vacation to BC from Seattle and it was awesome! Everyone we met were very helpful and friendly. Beautiful rooms and views!

Perfect spot to give visitors a taste of Victoria

We were so happy to have booked in here for one night with our guests from Japan. Service in Japan is consistently really high, this was their first trip to Canada, and we were hoping to impress them. The Dashwood Manor did not disappoint. Everything was handled professionally and very hospitably. Both rooms were lovely - we were particularly taken with the Windsor Oak room, the old dining room of the house, with a great two person tub and a nice view from bed. We all slept really well, the beds were very comfortable and the location is beautiful and quiet. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed watching hang gliders drift by as we ate. I have no hesitation in recommending the Dashwood Manor to anyone looking for comfortable, upscale accomodations in Victoria. I'm sure we will be back on our own for a nice overnight trip from Vancouver.

found just by chance while looking in the intrnet

Excellent location for morning or evening jogging along the rim. 15 min walking distance to the city (through the park). Very freindly hospitallity and lots of suggestions where to go, what to see, where to dine. Excellent breakfast served. Authentic impression of old Victorian style.

We stayed in the oxford room and it was beautiful. The service was fabulous, very friendly and kind. My husband I were surprised at how great the options were for breakfast, food was delicious. Great view, great experience overall will definitely go again.

Wonderful place

4.4 on July 10, 2014

We had a lovely 3 night stay at Dashwood. Our room, the Windsor Oak, had been the old dining room, and it was large, comfortable and had so much character. David was full of information about Victoria and the Dashwood, as well as being responsive to our needs, like arranging an early breakfast when we needed to catch a ferry. Although I didn't meet Michael, I know he is a wonderful chef - perfect poached eggs, and a lovely presentation every morning! The location is nice, too. The water is right across the street, and it was fun watching people and their romping dogs in the park during breakfast. You can walk to the Beagle Pub and shopping, but there's no bustle and noise at night when you want to sleep. We would love to stay there again!

Dashwood June 2014

We loved our six day stay at Dashwood Manor. It is a lovely old house that retains a lot of its former glory. The best part of Dashwood is the personable owners and staff who are helpful in every way. Breakfasts in the former music room overlook the ovean, and there are five delicious choices to choose from. We would highly recommend this B & B as it is on the ocean, a 20 minute walk to the inner harbour, and across the street from the park. There is no doubt you will enjoy your time there.

Perfect for a getaway

Delightful Seaside Mansion

4.4 on July 03, 2014

My three night stay at Dashwood Manor was delightful. David and Michael were excellent hosts offering helpful information on sights to see, nearby restaurants and preparing a delicious breakfast each morning. My room was very comfortable with crisp clean bedding and towels and a lovely view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mts. The mansion and garden are charming and well maintained. I have already recommended it to other travelers.
