We loved this B&B! The location was perfect and it was easy to get to other places. There were two convenient places for dinner, within walking distance. Our hosts were very accommodating, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Spent 5 days in Victoria and we chose the Oak Bay guest house to stay. This was a great choice, both from location, value and style of this B&B. We will for sure come back there in our next visit.


Beautiful period B&B

From the charming rooms to the fantastic service, it was the best stay I've ever had. Great food and wonderful people. Keep local businesses alive!


Wonderful B&B

5 on August 27, 2014

First off, Victoria is a great place to visit. And having a place to stay out In a neighborhood makes it much more so. But easy to get into downtown either by car or public transit. The Oak Bay B&B was perfect for what we were looking for. Easy walking distance to either the water front or the small shopping street in the Oak Bay district. The breakfast's served were out standing....some of the best we've ever had at a B&B. Would highly recommend the Oak Bay House!


Highly recommended

Nice old house with individual rooms. Our room was on the smaller side, but very comfy and clean. The breakfast is outstanding!!! Also, you always get some delicious muffins on the way. Great experience!
