We celebrated our anniversary at the Manor and could not have made a more wonderful choice. The Staff were exceptionally kind and helpful. We would recommend this Seaside Manor to all and hope to return again.

Loved our stay at Dashwood Manor!!

5 on August 20, 2018

We are four best girlfriends from college and it's hard to find a room where we can all stay together, therefore we were thrilled to stay in the Camelot Suite where there was one queen and one full-sized bed along with a sizeable living room. (It being sort of an attic suite it did take a day or so to stop hitting out heads where the ceiling was low.) The breakfasts were quite sophisticated with a small starter and a hot main. It was just enough food to get us going. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommended!


Seaside downhome manor away from the crowds

4.6 on August 19, 2018

We were able to experience the best of the “city” of Victoria five minutes drive from the manor, while waking up to the sounds of the sea in the mornings. The Manor was the gracious residence of an old world wealthy family. We felt “at home” because of the exquisite bed linens, high quality mattress and fine bath soaps in our suite. We slept with the door ajar to our balcony and the sea would lull us to sleep. The sausage and egg breakfasts were individually prepared and featured fresh fruits and pastries each morning. Ann and her assistant Sandy pampered us. We would definitely stay here next time!


Charming B&B

Lovely Respite

My friends and I felt welcomed and I particularly appreciated the quiet respite from the hustle and bustle. I loved the view from Camelot.


Sleeping like queens

5 on August 02, 2018

My mom and I where traveling from Calgary and this was our last and most pleasant sleep.Thanks to Ann and her kindness our stay felt just like being at home due to the design,comfort and food. We slept like queens in a unique 1900’s beach front view bedroom. The next morning started with a bright sunrise and homemade breakfast for each of us. Even though our stay was short, we had the full Victoria experience!
