The John Lewis House was built in 1900 by master cabinetmaker John Lewis, who came to Victoria from Wales in the late 1890s. Evidence of his craft can be seen throughout the house, especially in the ornate mantelpiece and decorative woodwork in the living room as well as in the wood-panelled vestibule. We’re located a short walk from downtown and also the U.S. ferry terminals (Coho to Port Angeles, Victoria Clipper to Seattle).

Very pleasant stay in Victoria

4.6 on April 08, 2014

Becky & Bob are excellent hosts. They even helped us plan our transportation to Victoria from Vancouver in advance. They know the area well and are very helpful in arranging plans during your stay, if you so desire. Becky's breakfast are absolutely wonderful. The John Lewis House is very nice and conveniently located. We'd definitely stay again if we had the opportunity.

Bob and Becky greeted us warmly, ushered us to our delightful rooms upstairs and gave us maps for our next outing. The rooms were impeccable with lovely touches including fruit and chocolate! Bathrooms adjacent to each room were sparkling clean and in keeping with the historical charm of the home. Breakfast was beyond all expectations with utmost care for every detail, many items were homemade. As hosts, Bob and Becky can hold the highest standard for providing a perfect getaway.

The room was quite nice. The fresh fruit tray was a very nice touch. I am a very early riser so they were able to provide me a coffee maker for my room. Overall great value.

Wonderful Stay and Fantastic Innkeepers!

This is a beautiful little bed & breakfast just minutes from downtown Victoria. The innkeepers, Becky & Bob, are very friendly as well as being helpful regarding the area. The B&B was clean (and I'm picky about that!) and the breakfasts were absolutely wonderful!!! We would highly recommend staying at this great B&B.

Great bnb in a great location
