We read the description of this house and booked two nights. It was one of the most expensive places we stayed during a theee week trip. I was disappointed from the moment we arrived. I never revived the email on how to access the lock n had to pursue this myself. . Then the walkway to the house was overgrown, unkempt. The bathroom was very tiny. The view across the street could be wonderful But the windows were very dirty unfortunately. There's a gas fire place n tv with cable but no instructions . I never could find a switch for a fireplace. I asked for suggestions for restaurants n never received anything. There's nothing in the room about local restaurants but brochures in dining room about city attractions. Then the lamp in our room by the bed was broken n the posts on the bed were both wobbly. I would have checked out but I didn't want to waste time looking for another place.

Junior on-site staff do attempt to manage with a smile but have no authority to deal with serious guest concerns and humbly request that guests wait a few hours until they confer with absentee owners. We arrived at this heritage cornerstone property with due regard for the wide range of previous appraisals and years of travel experience with B&B residences around the world. View and location are remarkable and will hopefully will survive future ownerships though the recent acquisition doesn’t seem to be going well. During our three days we spoke with a couple who had faithfully visited annually for over forty years who were leaving to stay at a downtown Best Western for the remainder of their stay. By the end of our third night we wished we had followed their example. On arrival at 3 pm we found our chosen room to actually be located on the third floor up a narrow staircase but not yet ready nor was it on second return. After an initial night of rattling doors and windows ( no exterior door screens or AC) we asked about room transfer to an apparent vacancy to be told that this was not permitted due to demand on staff workload. Insisting that they confer with off-site management we were later phoned and drove back to transfer our luggage. The next morning after a night in bedding we were sure had not been changed we were advised of their need to transfer us for our third night due to room assignment conflict. We refused then offered to do so for waiver of fees for that night so to avoid their conflict with incoming guests. Again no ability for on- site decision. Each of the three mornings of arriving for breakfast to enjoy a decent view out the seaside windows it was interesting to watch the cook sitting on the front sidewalk having a coffee and toking a joint, then coming in dressed in sweats to help serve the room. Though a large historical residence you will find no common area, lounge or library. Two metal tables and decorative chairs are available on the front lawn though we would not sit there in case the hundreds of people passing by thought we might be responsible for the unmowed lawns and desiccated flower beds. The effort to extract all possible income out of the legacy of this residence is apparent though not an effort we will recommend to anyone. (One further memory just came to mind … while leaving after first arrival to unprepared rooms the handle for the front door came off in my hand)

I booked Dashwood Manor as a solo getaway for myself. My stay in the Chelsea Room was perfect. The room (amazing four-poster wooden bed) was well-appointed and comfortable. The full breakfasts were wonderful. The staff was helpful and always kind. I particularly enjoyed how quiet the manor was as well as the beat being literally right across the street. A great spot to enjoy the quiet, non-touristy part of Victoria in walking distance of the Harbour.

My husband & I enjoyed a wonderful stay at this heritage, well kept house. It's the perfect location for exploring Victoria by foot. Cook Street Village has a small market, liquor store, cafes/restaurants, a drug store & other unique shops. The Beacon Hill Park is amazing & the harbour & China town are comfortable walks. It's a great starting point for day trips including the ferry to Salt Spring Island. The penthouse was comfortable. Loved the views of the mountains, the strait, kiting, people walking/jogging/bicycling, dogs... & the access tunnel to the beach. The breakfast was good. But the service... "above & beyond" our expectations! We would highly recommend the Dashwood Manor for those wanting to stay in Victoria.
