My husband and I had a quiet get-away at Across the Harbour. The room was wonderful, Sue and Zen were wonderful, and the breakfast was fantastic! Such a lovely location, captivating view and beautiful garden - close to downtown but away from the hustle and bustle. Highly recommended - we will be back!

From the first time I spoke to Sue on the phone, I felt like she was welcoming her own friends. Sue and Zen were terrific hosts! They spent time chatting with us and helping us to plan our time in Victoria, providing maps and recommendations of things to see and do, of which there are many in this charming city!...

What a find! We found this B and B on the internet, and were certain it would be great when we talked with Sue on the phone. We weren't disappointed!

My fiance and I had booked two nights at Across the Harbour while we were on our first visit to Victoria and we loved it so much we extended our stay for an additional night :) The location was perfect for us- it was far enough from town to be peaceful but close enough so that we didn't think twice...

Close to downtown, on the walking path, with great views and Sue- one of the best innkeepers we've come across. She sat us down with a map right away, and let us know the best way to get to everything we wanted to see, the locals favorate places to dine, and some don't miss gems that you may not otherwise...
