The Humboldt House is Victoria's most romantic and private B&B located in the heart of Victoria offering views of neighboring St. Anne's Academy and its historic apple orchard. Five of our beautiful themed guest rooms have a large Jacuzzi tub and each have wood-burning fireplaces, allowing you to relax by firelight in your private Jacuzzi. Complimentary champagne & chocolate truffles await your arrival, and a gourmet champagne breakfast of your choice is delivered to the privacy of your room each morning.

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.

This lovely B&B is centrally located so you can walk all around downtown to restaurants, the waterfront, historic buildings and gardens. Service was excellent and private. On arrival we found sparkling wine in the room refrig with 2 wine glasses on a table, each holding a chocolate truffle inside. Fantastic breakfasts delivered to your room in a basket - privacy with flare. Room was comfortable and nicely decorated. The step-in jet tub was fine for me but a little hard for my 6'4" husband to get into. Reasonably priced, lovely accommodations. Would return to Humboldt House again.

This B&B is centrally located within walking distance to the downtown and park. Breakfast comes in this wooden box in your room. You open the door and breakfast is served. The breakfast was amazingly wonderful. The wood fireplace was a wonderful addition. Loved this place and will definetly return.

A lovely walk from the Ferry, and a central but peaceful location. We are not big BAnd B'ers ( usually too fluffy) but we found Humboldt House a pleasure. Lovely decor and the folk there ( we met David and Mira) wonderful. We are looking forward to returning!

Special occasions, such as anniversaries, birthdays, etc., need a very special setting to fully celebrate the occasion. Victoria, B.C.'s Humboldt House B&B more than provides the setting. You come away knowing you have been pampered with a unique service. A wood burning fireplace, in-room jetted tub, gourmet breakfast privately supplied to your room, leaves you with the knowledge you have now lived the "good life." The only thing remaining is to start your search for another reason to visit this outstanding getaway.

This B&B was different than others we have stayed in because the delicious gourmet breakfast was delivered to our room through a two-way pass through. We were able to eat in our pjs and not have to hurry down fully dressed to a dining room. If you like to chat with other guests (we do too, but loved this idea) this might not be for you. The host David is a pastry chef and he makes the chocolate truffles (with champagne) waiting for you upon arrival, plus the pastry with breakfast and the pastry treats set out every day in the "library". There is a jacuzzi and fireplace in every room. [Some guests might not like the hand held shower in the jacuzzi but we didn't mind.] David was extremely friendly and very helpful with places to go and restaurant suggestions. The B&B was very close walking distance to the wharf, the Empress Hotel and the government buildings.

The Humboldt House B&B was very charming and clean. The breakfast that was severed was outstanding and plentiful. The owners were friendly and helpfully and very knowledgable about Victoria and area. Would recommend this B&B to all my friends and family. Defiantly would stay there again on my next trip to Victoria.

Privacy in a quaint old Victoria setting. Humboldt House will not disappoint. Sip brandy in the library, walk the quiet streets, stroll to fabulous Beacon Hill park or nearby tourist sites.
