“A spectacular stay at the John Lewis House!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2011

Bob and Becky were impeccable hosts during our five-night stay at the John Lewis House. The room and adjoining bathroom was clean and well tended, and every morning we were treated to Becky's exceptional, enormous homemade breakfasts----complete with baking to take away as snacks later in the day!

Even before the trip, Becky and Bob were very easy to communicate with via email. Owing to allergies, I wanted to ensure no pets would be there, and Becky let me know promptly that there were no pets at John Lewis House. Then, she even went so far as to inquire about food preferences, so breakfast would be perfectly tailored! And upon meeting both Bob and Becky in Victoria, they were friendly, understanding and helpful at all times.

The price was more than reasonable for our visit, and the location of John Lewis House was just fantastic: a short walk to downtown Victoria due north, and a short walk to Beacon Hill Park and the Beacon Drive In due west. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to any others thinking of staying in Victoria!

Shortly after of our arrival, Becky and Bob had sent us off with directions to walk downtown. At the end of the street, overlooking the entrance to the harbour, we watched a pod of Humpback whales feeding leisurely just off-shore. What a start to an enchanting evening in Victoria. If you're looking for a quiet, friendly place to stay within walking distance of downtown, we would definitely recommend Bob and Becky's hospitality. John Lewis would be pleased.

We enjoyed our stay with Bob and Becky at their B&B. They are very friendly and we felt welcome staying in their home. The John Lewis House B&B is located within walking distance to downtown, the ocean and surrounding historic homes at James Bay. Our accommodation was very clean and quiet. The bedroom was very comfortable and the adjoining bathroom had been recently renovated. Our homemade and 'fresh from the oven' breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day ahead. We would definitely stay here again.

This is such a great place to stay in historic James Bay!! You can walk to historic downtown in 10 minutes and to the ocean the other way in 5! The beautiful old house is meticulously clean! The bedrooms are lovely and quiet and very comfortable with your own bathroom! I had the best sleep! Breakfast was gourmet and all homemade. Fills you for the day! We felt so at home with the best of hosts! We definitely will be staying here for any of our visits to Victoria..Very close to being perfect!!
