Lilac House
Ranked #49 of 91 Victoria B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 July 2011

On a recent trip to Victoria I wanted somewhere quiet and friendly to stay and found the Lilac House B&B.

Tucked away near Sooke it has a lovely location away from the hustle of Victoria but within easy driving distance.

Lilac house is owned by Gail who is very welcoming and friendly. She made my stay very enjoyable.

My husband and I stayed with Gail, the landlady at the Lilac House, for 3 nights in August 2009. We picked a place outside Victoria on purpose. After arriving from Germany the day before we didn't only want to do sightseeing in Victoria but also wind down and relax a little and the Lilac House seemed like a place where you could do just that. It was!
We stayed in the large, nicely decorated "Suite of Angels" room with a huge ensuite bathroom. The metal frame bed was a little squeaky, but apart from that very comfortable. The house itself has a very inviting atmosphere. You feel like home. On a sunny afternoon we could sit on the large deck that wraps around the house - you could even use the jacuzzi if you wanted to. You might not want to book the other upstairs "Dreaming of Lilacs" room since it has an opening towards the main living room that can only be closed by drawing the curtains.
Gail is an extremely friendly, warm, welcoming and interesting person who had a chat with us every morning while preparing our delicious breakfast. The breakfast consisted of freshly baked scones or the like and an assortment of fresh fruit plus croissants every morning. For dinner, Gail advised us to go to the cozy 17 Mile Pub down the road, which we did. They offer very good home-cooked-style food at affordable prices.

My partner and I stayed at the Lilac B&B in Sooke. Gail the host was so hospitable. The moment we entered her home, she was so warm and welcoming. The house itself is beautiful and the location is perfect. We traveled by car to and from Victoria almost everyday-it takes about 20 minutes. We stayed in the Angel suite which came with a beautiful bathroom. The evenings at the B&B were so quiet and relaxing. Waking up to Gail's delish breakfast was amazing.
I highly recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking for an affordable homey, warm place to stay in and around Victoria.
Oh and the Illamas were so cute and fun to feed!
