Enjoyable stay

4.0 on October 24, 2016

A lovely inn with well appointed rooms and very attentive staff. We enjoyed the extra amenities at the inn including sherry in the lounge in the late afternoon and coffee, tea and treats available during the day. It's a great location: the waterfront walkway, restaurants, shops and even a movie theatre are a short walking distance away.

Cozy and friendly service

Beautifully decorated rooms and service to tailor all needs

Comfy B&B

3.2 on September 20, 2016

Lovely B&B, comfortable linens and amenities. Highly recommend. One note of improvement; please eliminate the dated fake flower arrangements from the rooms and parlor areas. They take you back to the 80's, not nostalgic really, and so easily replaced with faux fruit or simple fronds. It's worth $10 for a live plant in the dining room!

Excellent B&B by the Sea

From the warm welcome, to the smell of baking in the oven when we entered the home, to the well appointed room and amazing breakfast, there is nothing bad to say about this B&B. It is close to all kind sof shops and the ocean. And, if you have a ferry to catch back to the BC mainland, the B&B is well located for a short trip.

Best B&B on West Coast

Great Inn. Very nicely appointed, clean, well maintained and comfortable. Much better than a big hotel. Free parking, nice breakfast. This was our second visit. Highly recommended.

Wonderful stay!

My Husband and I had a wonderful story at this lovely Bed and Breakfast. The location was perfect for taking a stroll along the water and in a quiet area. The breakfast was just delightful. Our room was very comfortable with everything we could possibly need for our last stop in Victoria. Thank you for such a perfect end to a perfect vacation!

Calm and Courtesy in Sidney

4.2 on July 31, 2016

The the Beacon Inn was quiet, extremely comfortable, and very conveniently located. The staff was courteous and helpful. I had forgotten my phone charger and they immediately loaned me one. Tea and brownies in the afternoon, a glass of sherry at 5 pm, and a delicious breakfast in the morning were wonderful. Especially good was the excellent light for reading in the bedroom. Most hotel rooms have dreadful lighting, but the Shaw room where I stayed had good reading chairs and good lighting. This was my second stay and I will return.
