Lovely birthday gift.

We spent a Saturday night at the site for my 61st birthday. The stairs were a little daunting, but we asked for the third floor for a good view. A little disappointed at how much the roof cut off the view from the Somerset, but in all other respects, the B&B was as a 'genteel, grand old dame". We were delighted with a nearby path down to the beach. Breakfast was a gracious affair. Staff were kind and attentive.

Beautiful property. Pleasant hosts

Why won't the site let me rate things Outstanding? We have stayed at Dashwood many times and will return soon. David and Michael do a wonderful job of making this wonderful old mansion seem like home. The breakfasts are amazing and they are always helpful in arranging tickets or giving good advice. The views are spectacular and our view of the Truck Parade was great. You couldn't find a better place in Victoria to stay.

Old world elegance.quiet although many guests. delicious and beautifully presented full breakfast. The location was amazing, across from the ocean and Beacon Hill park. We will go again and try one of the other rooms, which we were able ti tour. Each one was beautiful.

There is a reason we keep coming back!
