Shayne and Carol have created an amazingly comfortable B&B in the countryside near Ladysmith. It is hard to rate as 5 is not high enough. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and beautifully kept and decorated. Plenty of privacy and in a quiet setting. Their hospitality is beyond belief. Lovely to share knowledge of the area and have great conversations. Shayne...

My husband and I went to Vancouver Island to celebrate his birthday. After much research I chose Blanket and Spoon based in part on the high ratings and we were not disappointed. Shane and Carol were very gracious hosts. Our room (the king room above the carriage house) was large, elegant and comfortable and the hot tub was a great...

Carol and Shayne have managed to create a very special place - beautiful, comfortable, with lots of privacy. We felt pampered right from the beginning. Shayne's breakfasts are out-of-this-world and Carol just radiates warmth and hospitality! I wish it was closer, so we could visit them more often.

Spent two nights here in early July. We stayed in the main house, and had two rooms plus a big washroom. The rooms were beautifully decorated with local art. Homemade pastries were available all the time as well as fresh coffee, tea or hot chocolate. But the main reason for staying here is the breakfast and the conversations that go...

This accommodation came at the end of several months of travel and it was exactly the 'wind down' that we needed. We stayed within the main house and accommodation comprised a lovely sitting room with a beautiful day bed, games, colouring books etc, then a huge bathroom ( iron and ironing board in the cupboard), water cooler, then into a...
