A wonderful stay in a wonderful town

4.8 on October 11, 2017

We could not have been more pleased with our stay. The check in was simple and efficient, the room was spotless and extremely comfortable and the breakfast was perfect. The town of Sidney was wonderful with great walks looking over the Strait, the most awesome sun rise and fun shops. Location for going to Butchart Gardens, Victoria and the ferry made everything stress free. A great couple of days. Look forward to going back there in a couple of years time

Thank you so much for hosting our stay at your B & B while we were in transit from our Gulf Island home to TO to visit our newest grand baby! The service was outstanding and we really enjoyed your establishment! We received the help we needed (without our asking) with our bags and found the room lovely. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet and inviting. Thank you so much for making the start of our vacation so delightful!

wonderful anniversary stay

4.0 on September 19, 2017

Our stay was only 2 nights but we enjoyed it. The room was beautifully decorated and the hospitality outstanding. Small hotel and maybe not to everyone's taste but we liked it.

Lovely Inn.

4.4 on September 19, 2017

Extremely friendly reception. Very close to all things happening in Sidney. Would stay again and recommend to others. Only negative was absence of room with King bed.

A hidden gem

4.6 on September 13, 2017

Very beautiful B&B that proves to be the a top B&B in Canada. Did not disappoint, would definitely return again if in the area. Walking distance to downtown and pier. Very friendly and helpful staff. The complimentary evening sherry was a nice added touch. They didn't miss a thing.

Wonderful, simply wonderful!

I just returned from my second stay at the Beacon Inn at Sydney and can not say enough about how wonderful this little gem is. From the cozy, comfortable rooms to the superior staff, breakfast and service, it is without a doubt a destination I will be returning to over and over again. Sydney is a quaint little town with shops and beaches to explore and just a short distance to the Buchart Gardens and city of Victoria. Fantastic!

Clean, Quiet, Secure and Delicious Breakfast

4.6 on August 23, 2017

My friend and I stayed at the Beacon Inn at Sidney while attending a conference. The location is very quiet and close to amenities. We were able to walk to our conference location and other venues with ease. The entire building and room was beautiful and very clean. Sid, at the front desk, was very welcoming and helpful. I appreciated the security lock on the front entrance door that added to the separate room security. I was only able to stay for breakfast one morning. It was delicious! The following morning they made me a breakfast grab bag to take to my early morning meeting. Nice touch! I am really fussy about my pillow and usually bring my own. I didn't bring it on this trip and missed it. I would definitely stay here again.

Delightful stay

Our time at the Beacon Inn was perfection and grace. The staff were attentive and friendly and always willing to offer a helping hand. The room we stayed in and the entire Inn was beautifully decorated. We will return!

Fantastic B&B

5 on August 13, 2017

I was fortunate that Beacon Inn was able to accommodate my need for a one night stay at the last minute. The Inn was a wonderful choice - very gracious reception. I was accompanied to my room where all the amenities were explained. Unlike some B&B's the rooms were very quiet - no spillover noise from other rooms. It is very convenient for walking to restaurants and shopping. I will certainly be back in the future. Ginny
