We always look to see if The Dashwood is available for our stays in Victoria. great location 2 minutes from the busy downtown yet in a spectacular location with views of the ocean ! The breakfast room is a quiet oasis and the food is an adventure and really tasty ! Our hosts are excited to share their city with us and always are asking if we're having fun.

Wonderful Inn

We really enjoyed our stay at Dashwood Manor. The location is great--across the street from the water, but an easy walk to downtown Victoria. Cook's village, a neighborhood commercial district, is only a couple of blocks away, and has great restaurants and other services. David was extremely helpful in giving us suggestions on where to go, what to see and do, making reservations, etc. Our room was beautiful, and very spacious, with a nice sitting area. Breakfast was delightful in the dining room overlooking the ocean.

A piece of heaven in Victoria!

David & Michael were perfect hosts with great advice and never steered us wrong on where to go or what to see. Becca was the best server art breakfast, always looking after you to assure your satisfaction. We would highly recommend the facility, an 11 on a scale of 10!

Best B&B ever

5 on June 05, 2016

Anyone going to stay in Victoria needs to stay at the Dashwood Manor. Everything about it was wonderful. The breakfast was unbelivable, the presentation was outstanding and the food itself was great. Very comfortable and spacious rooms. The location is perfect, right near the ocean and you can walk to all different restaurants. Michael and David are great hosts. We are already planning our next trip there. Jerry and Mariellen

Outstaning B & B in Victoria, B.C.

4.8 on May 31, 2016

David and Michael run an outstanding B & B. Service was great from the moment we walked in. Breakfast was very good. The location of the B & B can't be beat, great view of the water and across the street from a beach park and from the other corner Beacon Hill Park. Very peaceful setting but only a 20 minute walk to downtown and even less to local restaurants. We look forward to our next stay at Dashwood Manor.
