Wonderful stay at the Dashwood manor! Fantastic breakfasts and attention to detail. A few steps from the ocean and Beacon Hill parc. Beautiful and comfortable rooms with breathtaking view. It takes approx 20min walk to get to Victoria centre.

This large house is in a great location very close to the beach/ coast with great views across the sea to the mountains beyond and just 6 minutes taxi ride from down town. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable. It is under new ownership, in the last 5 months, and the owners are delightful and work hard to please in any way they can.

Breakfast was cooked individually and was delicious.

They also have plans to make a number of improvements once they get into a quieter period and I am sure this will be done carefully and tastefully.

Our bathroom was small and in need of some renovation and we have marked the place down for this reason.

We and our friends stayed 2 nights and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Kensington has great views and Park Lane was large with side views out to sea

This property is under new ownership as of April,2013.
The two owners, Michael and David, are outstanding hosts. Check in was very quick and David helped us with our luggage.
We stayed in the Dorset room. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable and the accommodation was very spacious. We were visiting with another couple who stayed in the Somerset room. They were also very pleased.
Breakfast is ordered from a menu and our breakfasts were exceptional.
Each platter of food was a work of art and the flavours were wonderful.
The location couldn't be better.
The next time we're in Victoria we wouldn't even consider staying any where else.

I planned my friends' wedding in Victoria and finding the right place for them to stay on their wedding night was very important. We certainly made the right choice in the Dashwood Manor!

The owners went out of their way to accommodate us and make everything just right. There were flowers and a card in the room upon our arrival and Champaign and glasses with strawberries in the fridge.

The Manor is beautiful and the scenery unbeatable as the room overlooked the ocean and Clover Point. I understand the breakfast was outstanding.

Thank you for making the day special! I highly recommend the Dashwood Manor!

Background: I am a frequent traveler (3-4 week long trips per year). I also frequent B&B's. This visit was with my mother.

Arrival: We arrived mid-afternoon and were greeted by David. Check-in was quick and he helped to carry my mother's suitcase up to the third floor. My suitcase was lost somewhere in San Francisco and wouldn't arrive until the next day. We stayed in the Dorset room. We originally reserved the Tudor room, but the owners are re-doing the rooms and asked if we would like to switch to the Tudor room and have two twins beds. The addition of the balcony and views sold me, so we made the switch. This was changes prior to our arrival. :)

Room: The room was comfortable. The views were splendid and the cool breezes were lovely. I believe some of the other rooms in the house are better updated and I would recommend those. I know the owners have plans to re-do the Dorset bathroom in the Fall, so look forward to that! The bathroom wasn't horrible. It was very clean, just awkward. The vanity and mirror are very low. You have to basically sit in the chair (provided) to see in the mirror. The bathroom was quite large, so I think David and Michael will come up with a much better layout.

Breakfast: Fantastic!! These gentleman know how to start the day of right. A plate of goodies is provided to start along with coffee/juice/tea. Everything is constantly refilled, which is lovely. You can also order an omelet, french toast, eggs/bacon, yogurt with fresh fruit with different sides. My mother enjoyed two omelets and then eggs/bacon. I enjoyed two days with yogurt/fresh fruit and then french toast. All of the food was delicious! I have stayed in B&B's across the globe, so that is saying quite a lot!

Also, breakfast is served between 8-10am. It was a full house when we arrived, so we needed to pick a breakfast time on the first two days. We weren't thinking how early we would be up the first day (switching from east coast time), so we asked to be accommodated early on the first day and David jumped in to help the kitchen staff stay on track. Sorry David! We did appreciate it!

Staff: We mostly spoke with David. He was very friendly, easy to carry a conversation with and was ready to lend a helping hand. We enjoyed our conversations about David and Michael's past adventures and their future endeavors. Being in hospitality is a tough business, but both David and Michael make it look easy.

Location: I chose to stay here because I had a car for sightseeing and I like being able to wake up to a wonderful freshly prepared breakfast. I also like talking with the owners and getting to know the area. Without a vehicle, this location isn't really close enough to downtown or major bus pick-up/drop offs. The views of the beach are lovely. We checked out the path and loved seeing all the dogs enjoying themselves off leash.

Enjoy your visit and tell David hello!

Room Tip: Wait for the Dorset bathroom to be updated. Fall/Winter 2013.
