A fantastic spot along the waters edge, and beside the Beacon Hill Park. Stayed in the Dorset and had a beautiful view of the Strait for morning and evening viewing. The park provides a great place for a stroll to look at the flowers, watch the Herons. Michael and David are great hosts that provide a welcoming atmosphere to the Bed and Breakfast, and helpful suggestions on both the dining and activities in the Victoria area. As for the Breakfast, excellent is the only word that can describe it, both from the food served, to the view from the dining room, to the service provided. Thank You Michael and David for making our stay in Victoria enjoyable

Beautiful heritage house

Bathroom very small. Hard to manoeuvre in. Wasted space for jet tub in main room. Noisy pipes and neighbourhood. Could hear voices at all hours. Hosts are great as was the breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here one night in the only room that was available, the Cambridge. It was lowith quite spacious with windows overlooking the ocean. It had the unfortunate big acrylic whirlpool tub in the corner of the room. We always grit our teeth when we see this in an old historic home. The bathroom in this suite is quite awful. It is tiny with an unbelievably cramped shower (and I'm a small person, my husband wouldn't have fit). Nevertheless, we loved the room which had a very comfortable bed, nice linens and furniture. The breakfast was extremely good. There is quite a good choice and the dining room is very pleasant withbits views of the ocean. The owners here are exactly what you hope for when staying at a B&B: attentive, personable and professional. We enjoyed chatting with David very much. In summary, we look forward to returning to Dashwood Manor for a longer stay, hopefully in a different suite with a nicer bathroom.

Delightful hosts! Perfect location!

We just spent two wonderful days at the Dashwood Manor. Great view from the Somerset Room- of both the seawall and Beacon Hill Park. Full of character, ideal location, exceptionally warm and friendly management. Very tasty breakfast.

Cambridge Room has a spectacular view of the ocean

We had a fabulous visit to Victoria and thoroughly enjoyed the Dashwood Manor Sea Side BandB. We received exceptional service from both David and Michael. Their breakfast menu offers an selection of delicious choices and the coffee taste great. Thank you for your hospitality. Cheers

Michael and David were terrific and very helpful making arrangements and recommending restaurants. Rooms are very spacious and offer spectacular views. Love the location just across the street from the ocean. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Relaxing and Beautiful

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The inn was clean and bright, and the breakfasts were delicious and filling. Our room was large and looked out over the water. We enjoyed strolling through the park on our way to explore the downtown area, and found a great little pub (for supper) and a market for snacks a few blocks up Cook St. We felt very welcomed, and the innkeepers gave us directions on how to catch the bus to Butchart Gardens. There is a great place to walk right beside the water, and we enjoyed being there with families and their dogs in the evening. We had a wonderful experience at the Dashwood Manor and highly recommend a stay here.

Great rooms, location and people

The Dashwood is close enough to downtown to be an easy commute but far enough outside to be out of the chaos of all the traffic and crowds. We stayed in the Camelot room which is up two flights of stairs, but well worth it. The room is spacious and has a great view of the sunrises, sunsets, and the ocean. The staff/owners are very easy to deal with and extremely helpful with everything from providing information to making reservations. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Victoria.

Nostalgic Return

My wife and I returned to Dashwood 18 years after our first visit (our honeymoon). We were immediately brought back to all the great memories we still have of that first stay, and we have some great new ones to add as well. David was fantastic in providing us with tons of local ideas for food, sight-seeing, and relaxation. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts that Micheal prepared, and are especially grateful for the hospitality and privacy we experienced during our stay. We were treated to a free upgrade without having to ask and my wife and I both felt that we received more than our money's worth. Thank you so much for improving upon our past honeymoon experience!
