We had two rooms for our party of three: the Newport and the Tapestry and both were excellent. Our stay was amazing right from the warm welcome to the chill out in the afternoon in the gorgeous sun room (wine glasses are provided and so is free tea and coffee). The decor is faultless and reminded me of a very...

We stayed at the Oak Bay Guesthouse after a long day of cycling from Sooke to Victoria. I can't imagine a warmer and more relaxing retreat had we payed three times the rate. Our room was tastefully furnished, sparkling clean, comfortable and quiet. Our hosts Derek and Egle were attentive to our needs without being intrusive. We slept like princes...

My wife and I were invited to family wedding in Calgary, a city we've visited before. We thought why not fly to the coast while there, having never visited BC.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the quiet, safe community of Oak Bay, where wealthy Victorians have been escaping the hustle and bustle of Victoria's Inner Harbour and the Empress Hotel for over a hundred years. Be only minutes (and a world) away from all the Victoria has to offer. This Victoria Bed and Breakfast, located in BC, Canada, is a gracious 1912 Victorian Home. The home was converted to the Newport Inn in 1922 and has been accommodating travelers to Victoria since then. There are 9 rooms and 2 suites, all with private bathrooms (10 of the bathrooms are en suite). Free breakfast. Sun lounge is perfect for an afternoon cup of tea or snack. A fireside lounge is cozy for an evening glass of wine. Oak Bay is a walkers paradise. Easy walking distance to Oak Bay Village, Oak Bay Beach Hotel, Oak Bay Marina, Victoria Golf Club, Royal Victoria Yacht Club, Willow Beach and almost countless parks. Close to University of Victoria and Camosun. Enjoy the tranquility of a traditional English home in the heart of Oak Bay Village, steps from the Salish Sea. ... more   less
