New Years in Victoria

The Humboldt House was convenient to everything my husband and I wanted to do during our stay. We stayed in the Floral Room and it was everything a bed & breakfast should have and more -- breakfast delivered to your room at the time you specify! We had a wonderful stay and expect to be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Humboldt House, particularly the breakfast, spa bath and complementary wine and truffles. David was a very gracious host and kindly let our friend park in the guest parking area while she showed us around Victoria.The B&B was within a comfortable walking distance from the bus terminal and the Clipper Ferry Wharf.

We have stayed in B&B all around the country [USA] and this is certainly in the top 2-3. Everything was outstanding - location, amenities, room and furnishings, food and hospitality. Will certainly stay here on next visit to Victoria. Other words that come to mind are: romantic, private, peaceful.

Fantastic stay in this beautiful B&B

We had an amazing stay at Humboldt House on the first night of our honeymoon trip through Vancouver Island. The room was exactly as described and very clean and comfortable. The jacuzzi tub was a great way to end a day of exploring Victoria. The breakfast in the morning surpassed expectations being delivered to us in a picnic basket. The coffee was fresh and hot and we were impressed by both our crepes and eggs benny - everything was delicious! The location cannot be beat and I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Great amenities

Located in the heart of Victoria the Humbolt House was a relaxing oasis. Breakfast of choice was excellent and delivered to your room.

Quaint Victorian

We stayed 2 days in the Floral Suite. It was very comfortable well appointed. The staff was extremely helpful and cautious. Our breakfast was excellent and served promptly. If we are in Victoria again we will definitely stay at the Humboldt House again.
