Abbeymoore Manor

4.8 on November 04, 2016

We stayed in the Primrose room for 2 nights--comfortable and lovely accommodations. All the staff were friendly and engaging and eager to offer suggestions for meals out and sites to visit in Victoria. We couldn't have picked a better place for our stay and will stay at Abbeymoore Manor when we visit Victoria again .


Wonderful surprise!

The staff were so kind and thoughtful! The food was delicious and they accommodated our special diet so well. I can't wait to come back!


Cosy, friendly and noble

We had a wonderful time at this grand noble inn. Everything was meticulously clean and orderly. The staff and owners were cheerful and polite. Our sleep was comfortable and quiet. The master bedroom is pleasant and fresh.


Wonderful B&B

4.8 on October 29, 2016

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home and part of the "family." We had a delightful garden suite with a separate entrance, lots of space, and a very comfortable bed. The location is great. It seemed that no matter where we wanted to go, it was less than a 5 minute drive. The breakfasts were unbelievably good and far exceeded our expectations. There were always freshly baked cookies,other nibbles and a variety of drinks available. Most importantly, Anne, Henry and Georgie were attentive, friendly,and responded to every request. We are looking forward to our next stay at the Abbeymoore Manor.


Doesn't get any better than this!

Have travelled extensively throughout Europe, Canada, Asia and the USA. This BnB would have to be one of the best we have stayed in during our travels. The staff are attentive, friendly, sincere and provide the utmost in customer service. The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The chef makes the most creative and tasty breakfasts. The BnB, in my humble opinion, is located in the best neighbourhood in Victoria, and is easily accessible by public transport should you choose.

We had one of the suites and it was so nice. The breakfasts were out of this world delicious. Ian was a great host every am. Would stay there again.


Lovely, wonderful B & B.

Abbey Moore is a beautiful manor. The house is a lovely combination of spacious, warm, welll appointed rooms, great fireplaces and porches, nice artwork and amazing comfort. The beds and sheets were wonderfully comfortable. Breakfasts were superb-- even better than the pictures! We loved th neighborhood and walked all over-- wonderful streets and gracious, interesting homes, the government house with gardens and deer across the street, the fairy village whimsically and carefully constructed in front of one of the houses, and the neighborhood castle. The innkeepers could not have been more friendly and helpful-- and the other guests we met were also quite friendly and very interesting. We loved our stay and give Abbeymore our highest recommendation. Beth and Bill from Maine


Very satisfied

5 on August 29, 2016

We had a very pleasurable stay at Abbeymoore Manor August 17 -19th. We were very cordially greeted by Georgie. She gave us a tour of the Manor and showed us to our room. We were very fortunate to stay in one of the Garden Suites, located on the lower level. It was 85 -90 degrees F while we were in Victoria and our room was most comfortable. Coming from Alaska, we were not used to the heat. The attention to detail from the cream left in our frig for our morning coffee, to labelled bags for taking those used once soap bars home was just amazing. There is nothing they did not think of that could have possibly made our stay more enjoyable. They were very helpful in recommending places to go for a close walk, as well as dining recommendations. The breakfasts were very delicious and almost too pretty to eat. If you are lucky enough to book a room here, I highly recommend Abbeymoore Manor!


Hated to leave

5 on August 23, 2016

What a wonderful place to stay in Victoria. Can't think of a negative except needing to leave as we could have settled in for the long run. The morning breakfasts were exceptional, the accommodations superb and the location relaxing. The staff became family from the owners and chefs to Georgie who made everything 'friggin easy' and the morning trivia challenge with Nicole. Can't wait to get back!


Great B&B - even for the Gluten Free

5 on August 15, 2016

Wow - amazingly friendly hosts and their breakfasts were gourmet! Especially important was the fact that they could cook gluten free / celiac sensitive breakfasts which looked and tasted great. It was just for my wife and I, but we also saw others come with families and it is suited to both. They were super-knowledgable about the area and provided lots of great tips. Our room (apartment style on lower level) had all the touches needed and we also appreciated the snacks area (soft drinks, coffees/teas, water, fresh fruit and snacks) which was open 24 hrs. Lovely front porch to chill out on or stay inside and read the paper. Location was great too - we decided to not get a car and walk into town most days or grab a bus or a taxi. Bikes would have also been a great way to get around, but we only did short rides while on a bike tour. All in all a great experience and we heartily recommend Abbeymoore!
