This B and B in Victoria is located in a beautiful location, a mere block from the ocean and just a short distance to Oak Bay Village. Our stay however, fell short of our expectations. Having stayed a few times in another B and B in Victoria that we enjoyed tremendously, this establishment could not compare. The owners / staff... More

We stayed in the Raphael room for three nights in July. The room was small but had an en suite bathroom. The breakfast each morning was delicious and the dining room accommodated quite a few guests. We walked to the Oak Bay Beach Hotel to have drinks and dinner in the evening . The neighborhood that the Oak Bay Guest... More

Another lovely and very British B&B Guesthouse in Victoria/ Vancouver Island. The Landlady is very open minded, helpful and offers awesome fresh made breakfast in the morning. We loved it. Parking places in front or in the back yard which is very nice for people who are traveling by car. Rooms incl. bathrooms very British and absolutely clean. And by... More

The Oak Bay Guest House is an old Victorian era boarding house converted to a B&B. Rooms such as ours, the Cottage, are quite small, and in need of some renovation. Again this room is directly across from the check-in desk and at times becomes quite noisy, but overall I would not consider the B&B to be noisy. Yes, the... More

We stayed in the Garden room, which is a small but nice room overlooking the lovely front gardens. Unfortunately, we missed the mention of the bathroom being "across the hall" (and 10 feet along the hallway); fortunately, bathrobes were provided! The bathroom had a good supply of toiletries, but the wall tiles are a most unpleasant shade of bright lemon... More

We stayed 1 night at this guest house in Oak Bay. There was on site parking, beautiful gardens & a great night's sleep in our suite. The breakfast next morning was excellent & we were delighted with 2 muffins to take-away with us. This is a nice area just outside of downtown Victoria, B.C. We had a great dinner at... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights with my husband and 2 adult children whilst visiting British Columbia.

Centrally located in Oak Bay, this charming guest house has everything you need to feel warm and cozy and appreciated. Egle should be beatified for her wonderful generosity and kindness, and Lori holds the fort strong when Egle's away. Breakfasts are delicious.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Oak Bay Guest House while visiting family in Victoria. The Oak Bay neighbourhood is Victoria's prime residential area, quiet streets, big trees, manicured yards, safe & secure. It is convenient to downtown with the sights to see there. The Heritage home itself is true to it's roots in furnishings and decor but... More

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
