Magical!

My sister and I stayed here for two nights in different rooms, and we both loved our rooms. The rooms are charming, clean, and very comfortable. The owners are friendly and gracious. We plan on staying here in the future, but hopefully for longer, it is a wonderful place! There are cafes within about a 10 minute walk, and a beautiful ocean view walk just out the front door. Highly recommend.


Enjoyable stay

We only stayed one night but enjoyed the evening. Michelle made us feel at home. The Manor had just enough updates to make it modern without losing the feel of the era. A beautiful heritage estate. We'll be back. P.S. Great gluten-free breakfast. R&N


Short stay - Home away from Home.

5 on April 22, 2018

My wife and I stayed with this beautiful and exquisite place during our short trip to Canada from Singapore in the month of April 2018. Am trying to find the best words possible here...One is already blown away by the wonderful Victorian weather and the scenic beauty, however, Dashwood Manor's location is mind blowing..overlooking the amazing water and the snow capped mountains from your bedroom window..nothing can beat that. The beautiful people who manages and runs this people are the best. One is only made to feel that you have come back home to such a lovely family. The warmth, hospitality, the way one is looked after a long travel and in case you missed your breakfast due to over sleeping.. you just need not worry..rest assured you will be taken care of like a baby. I have traveled and stayed in many parts of the world.. but this stay in Dashwood Manor will be etched in my memory for a real long time..I rate this as our no.1 stay. Home away from Home. And thanks to the lovely people that took care of us and the glimpse of Victorian hospitality we were fortunate to experience.. we have decided to move to Victoria. I totally slipped in mentioning the interiors, furniture and the way it is maintained. Every room has it's own style. We were just blown away and were transformed to the Victorian era. I can't stop writing about our lovely experience. In short - if you travel to Victoria, Dashwood Manor is the place you will feel at home. Michelle and team, we will always be in awe of the fantastic experience you gave us, specially those conversations with you. Love you guys.. R&J

A stay at the Dashwood

4.2 on March 14, 2018

Gorgeous location; the views from the suite were lovely, and the trail and beach were literally across the street. The area is quiet at night, despite the heavy use in the daytime. Superb hospitality from Ann, our host, who went out of her way to welcome us and make sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast was gourmet. Our room, the Chelsea, was large, clean and comfortable, if perhaps showing its age a little. Carved 4 poster bed was a work of art; mattress was acceptable, though pillows could have been a bit more supportive. There was a (small) TV, though we didn't use it. Parking is tight and awkward to get into/out of, especially if the Manor has a lot of guests and most of the spots are in use.
