Couldn't have asked for more.

Wanted a quiet room to enjoy some quality time. Stayed in the Cambridge Room. The double soaker tub was a real treat. Christy was great. Very accommodating. Let us check out a little later so we could linger with a casual breakfast. We'd definitely stay again. Good value for a pretty idyllic spot. Thank you!


Waterfront Getaway

4.8 on October 14, 2017

I stayed for one night at Dashwood Manor and had an excellent restful stay. The waterfront location is very scenic, with lots of nice walking trails. The walk to downtown is only about 20min which is always nice, but if you plan to stay in that's just fine. Whether you plan to stop for a night, or have a weekend getaway you will not be disappointed.


Great Location

5 on October 08, 2017

This B&B is in a great location next to Beacon Hill Park, close to the water, and within easy walking of downtown Victoria. Rooms were clean & quite and the owners are very helpful. They recommended places to visit & eat. The breakfast has done really good options too.


We know now why the Dashwood is rated so high as a B&B

5 on October 04, 2017

As tourists in a beautiful Victoria that we knew nothing about, the Dashwood family helped us navigate to all the places we wanted to go.Our room was luxurious and we looked out on the sound with it's ocean side promenade that we really did enjoy walking with the natives and their dogs.The park is right across the street a short stroll to downtown with David's directions to a haberdasher.The level of help to find everything like the best pizza or how to get somewhere is five star. Don't go to bed too early or you will miss the incredible magic replenishing cookie jar.M&I loved Dashwood & Victoria. When can we have an incredible breakfast that is so artfully presented again.A level of love and acceptance is present in all of the employees & guests. M & I will surely come back.


Nearly ideal B and B experience

Outstanding place, people and experience.


Wonderful boutique hotel in a great location

3.6 on September 18, 2017

David and Michael truly know how to run a good boutique hotel and it's a real shame they can't continue with Dashwood. We were welcomed and felt at home from the moment we stepped in the door to the moment we left. The hotel has been kept in keeping with the era in which it was built (we sincerely hope this never changes as the heritage is vitally important) and yet the rooms are classy with all the necessary modernity required. We had the Dorset room with the balcony looking east and made full use of it when we could. Breakfasts were well prepared, freshly cooked and each room was given a specific time to arrive for breakfast - this is an excellent idea as it saves the customers waiting excessive times for their meals and keeps the pressure off the serving staff and kitchen. The guys also booked our whale watching tour ahead of our arrival for us so that we got a guaranteed booking slot. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from downtown if you put a bit of pace on, for a more leisurely stroll I'd give 30 minutes. This gets you right into the harbour area where there is plenty of restaurants. However, just a 10 minute walk down Cook Street is also a hive of activity and shops and restaurants. The airport was a 40 minute drive on a busy Tuesday morning. A great hotel, with great hosts.


Lovely Canadian B&B w/water view

4.0 on September 17, 2017

We stayed in the Dorset room which had a lovely partial view of the Straight of Juan de Fuca and Port Angeles. Every morning and evening we were entertained with the joggers and dog walkers. There was a small balcony with a table and 2 chairs to sit and enjoy the lovely ocean breezes. The room was large and comfy with a small refrigerator and sink in suite. We enjoyed a sitting area and TV. The innkeepers provided a vast array of brochures and periodicals for dining and entertainment in Victoria. The bathroom was large with separate shower and tub. It had a nice dressing area for the ladies. The sink was small, but functional. Breakfast was adequate, but not abundant. The service was overall excellent and the innkeepers made every attempt to satisfy the guests. We both enjoyed our long weekend at the Dashwood B&B. It was a great spot to explore downtown Victoria, a short 15 minute drive away.


We loved staying here!

5 on September 12, 2017

It was great to be right by the water and the Beacon Hill Park. We had a wonderful view of the water from our balcony. Our bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and well-appointed. It was nice to meet David and breakfast was delicious. Our server was Asia who was lovely. We were celebrating our anniversary and we greatly appreciated the small bottle of champagne left for us in the room. Delicious cookies are at reception in the evening.


Lovely pleasant stay just outside the city

4.8 on September 10, 2017
