“Loved the Brass Bell”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2007

A very charming tri-cabin boat decorated ornately in Victorian style. Plenty of places to stow away below and above deck to simply relax, read a book, take in the view of the harbour. You're on the back of the harbour with a perfect view of inner harbour in front of you. The aft cabin has a small wet bar and t.v. with VCR. Older blockbuster movies are stored for viewing. Sleeping accommodations are cozy but not recommended for the claustrophobic. The marine bathroom is a hoot (the manager comes aboard and teaches you the ins & outs of the plumbing at the start of your stay) or there is a large modern bathroom/shower at the marina house you can use. It is quite chilly aboard, and due to voltage limitations you can only heat one cabin at a time - but this works given you're either in the sleeping cabin or sitting room. Breakfast is included at a nearby pub - really fantastic & hearty meals. Also included is unlimited passage on the mini-ferries across innerharbour, so you can leave your car for the weekend and simply make it around Victoria via swift/simple public transit and on foot. The mini ferry stops at great little take n'go fish houses so you can grab some traditional fish & chips and eat waterside or top deck with amazing views. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer - just to linger above deck and soak in the sun and views (i was there 2 nights).

  • Liked — cozy ambience
  • Disliked — only able to heat the cabin you're in, so cold to walk from cabin to cabin
  • Stayed September 2003, travelled as a couple
