Spinnakers Brewpub & GuestHouse

308 Catherine Street , Victoria, BC V9A 3S8 Canada (Show map)


Located on Victoria's Inner Harbour, Spinnakers is a sight to see. We were a pioneer of the North American craft-brewing renaissance and are Canada's oldest brewpub. Our hand crafted ales are just steps away from our 1884 Heritage House. All of our Heritage rooms are fully equipped with double soaker jetted tubs, rain showers and fireplaces. When you come to Spinnakers you will feel like a part of our family. Come and experience a legend.

We were excited to find a B & B option in Victoria that included wonderful lodging and a brew pub together! The GuestHouse was just wonderful, very quaint and comfortable rooms, and the food at Spinnakers Brewpub was terrific, as was the beer! We would definitely stay there again!

fun stay at Spinnakers

What a great location. Wonderful walking area just outside our door. Room was quite small but adequate for our needs. Felt like an old fashioned boarding house. Breakfasts at the pub were outstanding.

Was concerned since this was a brew pub it might be noisy, but it wasn't a weekend and the room was actually located one lot away from the pub. Pub staff were very friendly. The full breakfast from any selection on the Pub breakfast menu was a definite plus. Room we requested had tight quarters and parking spaces were tight, especially if another driver did not park well. Passenger had to disembark beforehand, since typically only one car door could be opened.

Great choice, hope to visit again

Great heritage house next to the brewpub itself. Very welcoming. Good eats and drinks available. Jacuzzi tub very enjoyable. Rm 2 bathroom setup a little unusual, but it makes the original house work. Nearby water taxi pick up provides easy access to downtown and Fishermans Wharf.

Stayed three nights. Was in town for a triathlon. The room was huge, with kitchen setup. Location was great. Breakfasts were quite good as were the other meals. Easy access to craft beer was a definite plus!

Great Vacation in Victoria...Thanks Spinnakers!

Our first time visiting Victoria and we could not have asked for a better way to experience it by dining and staying at Spinnakers. The food was so amazing, we ended up eating breakfast and dinner there each night. The location was so great being right on the great seaside walkway and being 20 minutes from town. The room was adorable and super comfortable. We will be back...hopefully soon. Highly recommend this place!

Although the room we had was so tiny and had no closet or chest of drawers for any of our belongings, it was very clean and quiet. The staff was wonderful, as was the complimentary breakfast.

Great weekend

For some reason, I wasn't able to click on "outstanding" in rating service. Regardless, the dining roon service was outstanding. Breakfast was a high-point of the stay.

A fine weekend get away and excellent dining!

Celebrted our 15th wedding anniversary in Victoria and stayed at Spinnakers. It was all we hoped for, and the food was absolutely excellent.

Very impressive

The rooms (in an old heritage home) are beautiful, and being in a physically separate building from the actual pub and restaurant (although close) meant they are nice and quite. The rooms are large, and the little outdoor sitting area was pleasant. The bubble bathtub in our room was a nice touch. There's free wi-fi, coupons for breakfast in the morning at the restaurant, and the complimentary beer/truffle tasting tray in the pub was well appreciated. The food and drink at the pub and restaurant are outstanding. Spinnakers is about a half hour walk from downtown Victoria along a pedestrian only seawall, very pleasant, even in the rain. The only criticism I would have is that Spinnakers is not on the list of hotels that the airport shuttle bus goes too. However, if you're flying into Victoria take the shuttle bus to one of the downtown hotels (cost one way is about $30) and then either walk or take a cab (about $10) to Spinnakers. If you have time, public transit from the airport will also get you there ($2.50), but you have to transfer buses a few times.
