Beautiful seaside Victoria

The Camelot room was so lovely, large and comfortable. A great room for two sisters sharing the space for a few days. The breakfasts were outstanding, gluten free options included! Thank you David , Michael, Micheleand Lisa for such a lovely time visiting there. Very convenient also to downtown Victoria and Cooks Village.

Beautiful Location

My stay at Dashwood Manor was my first stay at a B&B! Really a wonderful stay in every way! Breakfasts were wonderful tasting and beautifully served! The service was excellent from everyone. The location is perfect right across from the ocean and within walking distance to a little area with shopping and restaurants! My room was perfect for me (The Tudor). The owners were wonderful very friendly and helpful!

Classy B&B

Best Location in Victoria, Fantastic Hosts

5 on October 02, 2016

First and foremost, Dashwood Manor likely has the best location in all of Victoria. The southern side of the house faced out over the water. Cross the street, and you are on the beach at Clover Point. Cross the street to the west, and you are in Beacon Hill park. For location alone, this would be the place to stay. Owners Michael and David (as well as their team members Lisa and Michel), however, do not rely on location alone to make your stay enjoyable. They are warm, friendly hosts who are extremely knowledgeable about area activities and restaurants. In addition, the rooms are comfortable, well-appointed, and immaculate. In terms of quality of service and quality of experience, this is quite possibly the nicest B & B I have ever visited. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. If you want to see the very best of Victoria, and be comfortable, well-fed, and a little pampered - this is the place!

By far the best B&B experience we've ever had! Fabulous location, service, food and accomodations. David & Michael and their staff are the very best!

Wonderful stay at Dashwood Manor

5 on October 02, 2016

Our stay in late September was our second at Dashwood Manor, and it surpassed expectations. Again, David and Michael were charming hosts, the service was impeccable and the breakfasts delicious. The Manor is located across from Beacon Hill Park and adjacent to the coast, offering great walks and views. David and Michael always provide good advice on where to dine and sites to see.

Envelopes You in the Victoria Vibe

4.8 on September 29, 2016

This is a great old manor house that captures the history and charm you expect of Victoria. Michael and David have done a great job maintaining the home's original ambiance, while making sure there are modern conveniences. The location was better than I imagined with great walking and beach access just across the street, fabulous restaurants just down the block and easy access to the freeways traveling to the Butchart Gardens and Hatley Castle. I can't say enough good about the herb omelet breakfast. Outstanding food and a view that can't be beat. We just wanted an easy getaway and Dashwood Manor exceeded our expectations. We had a great time! Thank You!

What a LOVELY stay!

We stayed two nights at Dashwood and couldn't have been more pleased. Our room had a wonderful view of the water and the mountains over on the Olympic Peninsula. The room was large and airy and the bathroom was huge. Breakfast was delicious and David & Michael were very helpful hosts with excellent advice about local attractions. I would definitely stay there again if I were going to be in Victoria.
