Adorable and Family Friendly.

5 on July 10, 2014

We stayed in the Garden Room. My husband and I traveled with a four year old and an infant, and I should mention it was our first time in Canada and at a bed and breakfast. Our stayed was phenomenal. We wanted to stayed away from downtown, and closer to tranquility. This Bed and Breakfast is adorable and clean. It is only a block away from the water and a ten minute walk from the shops. Hospitality was an "A Plus". The in-keepers were so friendly and helpful. First example, our plain was to depart four hours after check out time, so the in-keeper agreed to store our luggage for few hours before our taxi cab would pick us up. Also, our taxi driver took a while to arrive, so the in-keeper went out of her way and offered to take us if the taxi driver would not show. She left a terrific impression on us, and would definitely come back few years down the line.

Charming B&B

Fantastic stay

4.6 on June 28, 2014

Our stay at the Oak Bay Guest House B &B was only 5 days but we couldn't Have asked for better service. The staff and the owners were very personable and went out of their way to please us. The kindness that was shown was amazing. Egle took us for a drive around to show us some sights because I don't drive any more. She also drove us to the Hospital because I had some health issues. She told us to call her when we were finished and she would pick us up, which she did. You couldn't ask for nicer people. Breakfasts were always Great! and the muffins to go too. Would definitely recommend to others. Our special thanks to all of them Linda & Allan

Great Bed & Breakfast

Ruhig gelegenes Inn mit Viktorianischem Charm

3.0 on June 21, 2014

Wir haben hier am Anfang unserer Reise 3 Nächte verbracht, angenehm ruhig etwas außerhalb von Victoria, in Oakbay kann man auch schön spazieren gehen. Ein Auto sollte man aber haben, wennam abends in der Stadt essen gehen will. Die Suite bot durch das zusätzliche Zimmer mehr Platz, der kleine Balkon liegt eher unattraktiv zum Hinterhof. Authentisches, Viktorianisches Gebäude mit entsprechend älteren Badezimmern, funktioniert aber alles einwandfrei. Die Matratze war allerdings durchgelegen, daher leider das unbequemste Bett auf unserer längeren Reise. Sehr nette Gastgeberin, das Ftühstück wird. An einzelnen Tischen serviert, angenehm, dass man dadurch Zeitlich flexibler ist, aber dafür auch keine Unterhaltungit den anderen Gästen, wie sonst in einem B&B. Sehr empfehlenswertes Restaursnt mit schönem Blick in Laufweite an der Marina, (schließt schon um 21:00!)

First time at a B&B

Guest House Delight

5 on February 03, 2014

Beautifully maintained historic building. So many photos and decorative pieces to study and stimulate the imagination concerning bygone days. The sun room upstairs is a delightful surprise with coffee, tea, hot chocolate always available. The tin of cookies was a temptation!! Breakfast was amazing, prepared and cooked to order. We received a muffin "for the road" as we left the dining room. Will definitely stay again.

Beautiful and Coxy Bed and Breakfast

Nicole and Mario are doing an incredible job at the beautiful B&B. Nicole's breakfast is the best and with the everyday changing menu, you will never get the same food twice. She is extremely talented. The house is very comfortable, clean and very quite. A must place to be. Keep it up. Mike
