“Wonderful B&B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

We stayed at Dashwood Manor for 2 nights in early September. We have nothing but superlatives to offer about the experience, the hospitality, the accomodations, and the breakfasts! We've stayed at B&Bs in the US, Canada and Great Britain, and this was truly the best B&B experience we have ever had. Because we booked only a few weeks before, the only rooms available were the "smaller" rooms, the Tudor. The room was actually quite large, with a sitting area, a kitchenette, a full bath and a very comfy queen bed. Across the road, there is a walking path and a path down to the sea. Cook Street Village and Beacon Hill Park are just a short distance away, and Victoria Harbour is only about 25 minutes walking distance. We hope to return to Victoria again, and would not consider staying anywhere but Dashwood Manor.

Due to a cancellation, we were very lucky to stay one night (09/14) at the beautiful Dashwood Manor (thank you Ian for the recommendation!). David was very charming, helpful and took good care of us, a perfect host. Our room was very neat and spacious with a great ocean view we believe, just the weather... (right David? ;-) Coming back from dinner, there were freshly baked goodies on the counter - just great! Thank you David, we can only recommend the Dashwood Manor!

4 of us took the trip to Victoria for the Celtic Thunder concert.We had the good fortune to stay at the Dashwood. From the well appointed, comfortable rooms (with mountains of pillows) to the artistically presented delicious breakfast overlooking the water, our stay was outstanding. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and the whole atmosphere was enchanting, almost like stepping into another time. We will definitely be returning soon.

Room Tip: not a bad one in the house!

Our first time BnB-ing and what an experience it was! Dashwood offers a stunning manor with warm inviting rooms. Perfect location close enough to down town to walk but far enough away to be peaceful with great views of the ocean right across the road. Great hosts that know the area and know how to make you feel at home. We will definitely be back :)

We stayed here 3 nights. David welcomed us the first day when we checked in and was very helpful throughout our stay. We were on the third floor in the Somerset room. Our room was clean and quiet. We were surprised that we didn't hear any noise in the hall or any rooms. There was a balcony from our room with a view to the harbor. Breakfast is served every morning in the dining room and was very good, unfortunately we were not able to enjoy breakfast the last morning due to an early morning ferry.

We walked to downtown (15-20 minute walk) a couple of times each day and the park is directly across the street. We enjoyed the location and preferred to not be right downtown. There are also restaurants on Cook St just down the street, we stopped at the market to get some fruit.

Across the street next to the harbor is a path and steps to walk to the water which we did one day. It was a nice, relaxing stay for us and we found everything to be amazing!

It was also our anniversary during our vacation and David left us a small bottle of champagne and glasses to celebrate, which we thought was thoughtful.

We found Dashwood Manor to be a wonderful place to stay while exploring Victoria. It exceeded our expectations with a luxurious bed and clean, well appointed room. In the room's two vintage chairs, we had a view of the water and also a cozy spot to witness an amazing lightning storm. Orcas even made an appearance just offshore one afternoon! Our hosts, Michael and David were congenial and have the gift of creating a warm and welcoming environment. The breakfast room is fresh and bright with windows which look out over the gardens. This historical home is located across the street from a nice, paved walking path and is conveniently located near some terrific eateries. The only negative thing we noticed was that when water was being used in other rooms, it could clearly be heard, but it was not bothersome. We look forward to going back again!

Thank you for your wonderful review.
We are currently looking into a possible solution to quiet the flow of water from the bathroom in question. We should have this rectified once the bathroom renovation is complete.

We look forward to your next visit to Dashwood.
Sincerely,
Michael & David

I have been to Victoria many times and stayed in various hotels but I can honestly say that this was the best for me. While there is no pool or spa or other ammenities, they do not matter. The room was huge and inviting. I stayed in the Dorset Room which had a kitchenette available as well as a balcony which was fantastic to use during the day when I just wanted to sit and read and write. Breakfast was out of this world and was included in the stay. You had a choice from 4 items and I tried them all during my visit. I would recommend them all. Location was fantastic as well as I didn't want to drive anywhere. The Manor is across the street from the seawall and is on the corner of Dallas Rd and Cook Street. The Cook Street Village is within walking distance and I even walked to downtown Victoria. About 15 minutes. But the best part of Dashwood Manor are the hosts. They make you feel as if this is your own home. You can come and go as you would like and are not restricted with any hour. Even though the name says it is a Bed and Breakfast, I would call this more like a boutique hotel. It was an absolutely amazing stay and I would come back over and over again.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so if that is a problem, I would stay on a lower floor. There are three levels...
