We loved the situation of the B&B, close to the sea and the city centre. Victoria is so welcoming, and so was our hostess and her stand in - Mum! We enjoyed the variety of breakfasts and had a very comfortable room. It was lovely to meet up with other guests who shared tips on what to visit too.

Fisher House is the place to stay!

We stayed in the Eleanor En-Suite for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. Very comfortable, and the innkeeper, Jennifer couldn't have been more pleasant. The location in Victoria is convenient to all the downtown sites and restaurants too, without being in the middle of the hubbub. The breakfasts were delicious and always included a nice fresh fruit cup. We would definitely stay there again!

Victoria B&B

2.6 on August 03, 2015

This B&B was satisfactory, but nothing special. It has a good location and you can walk to several site in Victoria. Breakfast was marginal for a B&B - food seemed store bought and not very creative. Inn keepers were not very accessible to help and disappeared the minute they set out the breakfast. Price was reasonable.

Innkeeper Response
Yikes! Are you sure you were at Fisher House? If you were, please tell me what I made that day so I don't make it again. Store bought? Ouch. I make every breakfast fresh and put great care into the menu planning, so this is unusual to hear. Sorry about your experience. We usually come out to the guests several times to make sure everyone is doing well and has everything they need. Not sure what happened. We thank you for your review and letting us know how we can improve for your next stay. Warmest, Jen

Clean, quiet, and comfortable room. Good location within walking distance to downtown Victoria. Jennifer was a very good hostess, with good knowledge about Victoria, places to go and things to do. Breakfast was very nice and it was fun to visit with the other guests at the table.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! We always have such interesting conversations around the table-half the fun of a B and B! Thanks for coming! Warmest, Jen

Fist time to Victoria Getaway

From booking, which was seamless, to check-in, which was wonderfully seamless also, to departure, the stay was terrific. Jen provided great service prior to check-in, and upon arrival, she booked our whale watching, gave great restaurant recommendations, and directions. Room was clean, quaint, and breakfast delicious. Thanks Jen and Cal for a great stay!!

We stayed here only for two nights but we wished we could have stayed longer...Jennifer if a great host and really lovely. She provides us with a lot of information what to do in Victoria and her breakfasts were amazing. The rooms a really comfortable and clean. You noticed that here is someone working who really enjoys doing her work...That is so great!
