We have been to several B&Bs and this one topped it. Very professional, clean, and welcoming B&B. We spent two days in the king bedroom. Very spacious and comfortable. Relaxed in a nice hot crawl foot bath and slept in! Cozy living room next to our room to unwind and have a glass of wine.
Details such as having a small fridge for guests, bath robes, computer, tea/coffee and fruit basket downstairs, wine glasses available, shampoo/conditioner/lotion in rooms made our stay even more relaxing, almost forgot we were in Duncan for some business meetings.
A lot of thought and work has gone into this historical house to make it a wonderful place to stay whether on business and/or pleasure.
To top it off it's a great location
Highly recommend it.

I stayed at Holmesdale House for a few days over the holidays while visiting family. The house was beautifully decorated and cheerful. I have a number of dietary issues and Cassandra was able to handle them all and still made amazing food. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and cozy and made my stay very relaxing.

Room Tip: All the rooms have ensuites and the place is very sound proof.

I know that my review is late, but better late than never. We had stayed at Holmesdale Bed & Breakfast for three nights in August, and they were very accommodating. We had travelled to Duncan for a family funeral. Having missed one of the ferries and arriving late was no problem for them, even helping us with directions. We received a nice welcome & great hospitality for our entire stay. We received several great recommendations of events & such around town. The breakfast was wonderful each day, even on the final morning of our stay when we needed to leave extremely early. I would highly recommend for others to stay here during your next visit to Duncan.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 2, which also has another small room for an additional fee. It worked out wonderfu...

My husband and I spent a glorious five days at Holmesdale House while visiting our son. The breakfasts that Cassandra prepared were fabulous! She was also very helpful in suggesting places to go and visit.
Our room with a king size bed and ensuite bath was very comfortable and spacious. The sitting room outside our bedroom was very quaint and served our needs well.
Also, the location of Holmesdale allows you to walk downtown or to enjoy the many nearby trails.
We would highly recommend this B&B!

Wonderful people, sumptuous breakfast, great location. Very spacious and confortable. Our daughter missed a breakfast and they packed a breakfast for her. Very nice historic house. The owners were very helpfull and we enjoyed talking to them.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights. The bed was much better than those you find in chain hotels. The house has a great old feel but it's kept up very nicely. Would definitely stay again if I ever made my way back to Victoria. This location offers free wifi. Make sure you tell the hostess if you have an allergies to food ahead of time. We did not know what we would be eating the next day. Lucky for me it was nothing I couldn't eat and it was delicious.
