Welcome to Victoria's Victorian Jewel. This 1892 Heritage Home is located just 5 minutes walk from the ferries, the ocean, downtown shopping and Victoria's major attractions. Albion Manor is situated in a beautiful private garden and features spectacular architectural details. Enjoy the comforts of newly renovated, modern bathrooms (some with Jacuzzi tubs), private entrances, balconies and patios all in a superb heritage building tastefully decorated with antique furnishings and paintings. Relax in the Peacock Parlour, on the large covered veranda or in the Obelisk Garden after your gourmet breakfast in our Victorian dining room.
Step back into a different century in this elegantly styled classical Victorian bedroom. Curl up in our king-size bed and dream of days of yore. The king bed can be made into twins if you prefer. There's a very comfortable sitting area with HDTV and VCR. Watch for details of painting done by Fernando. His stuff is everywhere. If you stand still too long, you might get painted! wonderfully spacious room with high ceiling, king-size bed with carved headboard and sofa-bed.
Enjoy an end-of-the-day glass of wine in your private sitting nook, on the patio that looks out into the Obelisk Garden that glows in the golden light of sunset and overlooks pear and apple trees. The room is filled with drawings and water colours of Seville, Fernando's home, many of them done by Fernando himself. The queen bed, dresser and night stands are French walnut from about 1870. It is a beautiful set with some of the best carving that we have in the house.
The outdoors is indoors in this garden room that has a private garden entrance. The camellias in the garden turn each window into a bouquet. Relax in this beautiful room that captures the bright morning light or enjoy coffee on the patio that leads out into the Obelisk Garden.
Henry VIII wished for a lot of thing. He wished he'd been more understanding. He wished he'd been a better husband. But more of all, he wished he'd slept in this room. The bed was seen in a number of movies and TV series. It's been rebuilt and refinished for us, but how we got it is another story. The ceiling is beautifully painted by Fernando himself with scenes and characters taken from old Pompeii. We have lots of Packages that you may want to consider for that special occasion.

My husband and I stayed here last summer for 2 nights. We are still talking about what a lovely time we had at Albion Manor. The hosts were very welcoming and attentive. We stayed in the room, Henry VIII, and were enchanted by the decor. Our bed was very comfortable and the jacuzzi was a nice reprieve after walking around all of Victoria. The meals were also very tasty. We would highly recommend staying here!

This historic house has a wonderful array of rooms with amenities to cover most needs. We had the downstairs suite with kitchen facilities and a door to the back garden, which was perfect for our needs. There is convenient parking and the inn is within walking distance of many visitor attractions, several restaurants, and a full size grocery store. The hosts are welcoming and the food is excellent.

First time in Victoria, I choose this promising Bed and Breakfast for two nights in order to visit Vancouver Island. We arrived very late but everything was prepared with a nice welcoming note. I had choose the Gargoyle cottage and it was extremely comfy ! On the following morning we were welcomed by Fernando and Don, and invited to share breakfast woth two other guests in the amazing dining room. Well, I don't call this a breakfast but a very fine, delicious and nonetheless well feeding meal ! (Special mention to the warm blueberry scones !!). As we were leaving too early the next morning they even prepared us a bag with a strong snack in it ... What to say : it was a perfect beginning for our holidays, I just regret not having stayed more, as they made us feel like at home. I probably will come again on our next trip in this area.

Our hosts were so sweet and welcoming. From the moment we arrived we had happy smiles on our faces. This place was so rich with history and close to everything. Even in the poring down rain that never stopped, our time was wonderful and thanks to a clean, nice place that was so interesting and comfortable. No matter what our eyes looked at, there was something unique to see. The gormet breakfast will be hard to beat in the states.Thank you, Fernando and Don for making our first visit to the BC memorable. We will be back. Sincerely, Jim and Vicki Boyle-Redlands CA

We were pleased that a friend and recent visitor to the Albion Manor B&B steered us to this unique and delightful place. Cordial hosts, creative decor, proximity to the center of Victoria, and memorable breakfasts and fellow travelers, made this a most enjoyable stay.

Staying at the Albion Manor was a wonderful treat in the middle of a two-week camping road trip.The Manor is located in a quiet neighborhood, close to downtown Victoria. But it's not the location that makes it so wonderful, it's the hosts, Fernando and Don, and the love and attention they have put into making the Manor a truly exceptional place to stay. Large, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfasts, beautiful gardens, relaxing patio and warm hosts. What more could you ask for?

The owners of Albion Manor are lovely and amazing people. They treat their guests with honor and respect. The Manor is so beautiful that I didn't want to leave to get dinner. The garden offers space for peace and solitude to read or a bottle of wind and a deck of cards. I stayed in Renoir and everything was perfect. If you want a place with beauty and humor and art and amazing breakfast, then this is your place. Enjoy!

Wonderful accomadations, food, and location with very friendly proprietors. Within easy walking distance to the attractions of the inner harbor including Fisherman's Wharf and the ferry docks. The gardens around the home are gorgeous and our Henry VIII room was perfect.
