Exceeded Our Expectations

David and Michael have done an amazing job of maintaining and gradually restoring Dashwood Manor. The location is superb and it was a treat to stay in this historic property. We would stay there again if we are visiting Victoria.

Amazing wedding anniversary...We want to live at the Dashwood Manor

5 on May 31, 2017

We just returned from our second time at the Dashwood Manor. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The first time we stayed on the main floor in the Windsor Oak. This time we stayed on the second floor, in the "Cambridge." OMG, the bed in this room is the most comfortable bed in the world. If the weather wasn't so nice, we would have stayed in bed all day long. The room was clean and the breakfast was delicious. The hospitality from Michael and David was perfect (again). They really know how to go above and beyond to make your stay that much more special. They are so much fun, and so knowledgeable about the area. I want to move into the Manor. I love it here.

It is a beautifully situated bed and breakfast in a romantic part of Victoria, BC. We loved the view from our room, and the breakfast was phenomenal. It is within walking distance of Beacon Hill Park. We enjoyed it very much.

Exceptional Everything!

Room, views, bed, choices of pillows, breakfast options, goodies left, decor, friendly staff, all was professionally done. Parking available, beach and park right there. Anywhere else would not compare.

Charming Inn

4.4 on April 18, 2017

Charming inn with lots of character. Our room had a fantastic view of the water and mountains, especially on a clear day. The owners were extremely personable and very helpful. They recommended and made restaurant reservations for us as well as a whale watch. Both were excellent and first rate - we would never have made such good selections. Having the park next door and the beach across the street were awesome. The walk to town is a bit long, but doable. Seating at breakfast if you are not first is a bit disappointing because only one table really has a view - I suggest that the table with a view could rotate through the guests. But the breakfast itself is delicious. I would definitely stay here again.
