We recently stayed at Villa Marco Polo Inn in Victoria and our entire visit was nothing short of exceptional. Diana and Alex were warm, welcoming and gracious hosts who genuinely care about their guests, which undoubtedly contributed to making our stay such a memorable and wonderful one. We stayed in the Zanzibar suite with its delightful Juliet balcony overlooking the...

It is very clean, I never experienced a 4 course breakfast...so easy to get spoiled~ The neighborhood is great, quiet, safe to walk around...(some friendly/wildlife can be seen from time to time)a young deer...

We came here for our honeymoon and it could not have been a better choice! The room we stayed in was big and comfortable and Diana and Alex were the most accommodating people. They always kept in contact with us and gave us the extra things we asked for and suggestions for dinner and activities! The place is beautiful and...

I really enjoyed the 4 course breakfast every morning. The Inn has great common areas and spacious rooms. We rented a car so the distance to any place in Victoria didn't matter but parking isn't always easy in Victoria. Great stay.

A beautiful setting -- really quiet at night. Our room had a fireplace and oversized tub with air jets. Our stay included a multi-course breakfast each morning. I wish we had been able to spend more time enjoying the environs. Would definitely go back.

Both the hosts and the property made this a fantastic experience. We felt welcome even before we arrived, as the hosts contacted us to gather info shortly after we made the reservation. The rooms have a lot of character, every room is different, we stayed at the penthouse, which is is spacious and has a great view. The common areas...

It was one of my best friends weddings and this could not be a more perfect place. Alex and Dianna were so helpful and kind. I had lost an earring and they took the time to look and exchange information. Even going the extra mile to follow up with me the next day to see if I had found it...

We had our wedding ceremony here in early July, the grounds and house were beautiful. Downsides were that the rainshower head in our shower did not work and even after we asked about it it wasn't fixed during our 3 night stay. Also we found it difficult to get a hold of the Inn Keeper at times, we had champagne...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A leisurely game of bocce, a glass of amarone, a stroll past the reflecting pool of an Italian Renaissance garden, a massage in a romantic penthouse spa. Tuscany or Umbria perhaps? In fact, the exotic Villa Marco Polo, one of Victoria's most sumptuous inns, is located in Victoria's elegant Rockland quarter. This classically designed Victoria Inn, built in 1923 as a gift to a young bride, remains a favourite romantic getaway and wedding venue. ... more   less
