The building is cute, offering a couple of bedrooms, all with their own bath, which is very convenient. Priced reasonably in a fairly expensive city, it gave us an opportunity to relax at night, after extensive walks around Victoria. I strongly recommend walking over to the harbor along the water, rewarding views of the area. You should also take the... More

This place is very nice. Off the beaten path and quiet with good-sized rooms looking out over a garden to the harbor. There is a welcoming, well-stocked open-air common area on the second floor with books, snacks, DVDs, and coffee/tea makings. Patrice, the manager, is a force of nature!

The B&B is located in a nice neighborhood, 3 km from the City Center that is easily accessible by a beautiful walk along the Victoria Bay. The place is beautiful, with nice and comfortable rooms,...

Patrice was great! She greeted us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the house. She even set out all the walking path information in our room since we'd mentioned being walkers when booking. Easy access to harbor trail and water taxi pick up/drop off. The breakfast room is wonderful, try to snag the table right by the window... More
