“A wonderful gem, terrific hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2010

John Lewis House in Victoria, British Columbia, is a wonderful gem within a 15 minute walk to downtown. It’s close to the Parliament Buildings, waterfront and the Historic Empress Hotel. A beautiful heritage home with two charming rooms to rent. The beds are very comfortable and each room has its own bathroom.

Hosts, Bob and Becky are wonderfully accommodating and can make recommendations on places to dine and things to do and see. Breakfast was amazing. Homemade granola, jams and jellies, fruit salad, yogurt, toast and a lovely crepe fortified us for the day of sightseeing. If you’d rather sit on the patio and enjoy a glass of wine this is the place to do it with a pretty garden in the back or a large veranda out front. We would highly recommend John Lewis House and will definitely visit again.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2010

My husband and I traveled to Victoria on our honeymoon and stayed at John Lewis House for 1 night. It was marvelous! Becky and Bob were wonderful hosts. They were very flexible in terms of our arrival time and cooked a fantastic breakfast for us in the morning. The house is charming (albeit a bit creaky) and is a 15-20 minute walk to the downtown area. I would recommend this bed and breakfast!
