Thanks to TripAdvisor contributors and their recommendations, we booked 4 lovely days at Oak Bay Guest House in August 2013. Nicole and Mario have done a fantastic job at making you feel at home in their lovely house. We were very happy with the room and the breakfasts are great, changing each morning. The dining room waitress, Joanne, is a sweetheart and is so cheerful.
We tried a number of restaurants in Victoria but found very nice ones in Oak Bay, both downtown and at the marina, just two blocks away. Oak Bay is a very beautiful suburb of Victoria, but very close to downtown. Beach Drive is one block away and you can follow it to the centre of Victoria. The scenery in B.C. is breathtaking and this drive downtown is one of the most beautiful we came across in our 2 week visit.

Room Tip: We very much enjoyed the Duchess Room, overlooking the front of the property.

My wife and I only stayed overnight, but had a wonderful experience. Mario was fantastic and the room was very comfortable Clean, quiet and exactly what we were looking for. We went out for dinner, had a great night's sleep and very much enjoyed the breakfast.

My favourite place to stay on Vancouver Island, whether I'm travelling alone or with family. Clean, quiet, and like a home away from home. Friendly staff, best breakfasts on the Island. Beautiful gardens, a walk to the Ocean and shops. Plenty to do in quiet Oak Bay, and the Guest House is close to it all. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I've only stayed in the Duchess and Garden Rooms. I prefer the Duchess when travelling solo.

The coffee was weak and so was the wi-fi but they are working to change both. The shower in the Tapestry room is very temperamental, can suddenly turn very cold. These are the only negatives. The hosts are extremely nice, very helpful, and have the right touch of being friendly and accessible without being hovering or intrusive. The breakfasts were very good, the bed was very comfy, the location is great. The neighborhood is beautiful and very walkable, there are great restaurants and pubs nearby, it is close to the beach, a great place to start & end bike rides. Easy access to downtown Victoria by car, bike or bus. We had a great time and will be back.

We stayed at Oak Bay Guest House for 3 nights during our trip to Vancouver Isle. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was clean and the beds were very comfy. The location was perfect, just 2 blocks to the ocean and minutes to downtown Victoria. Parking was free. Breakfast was delicious, my favourite was the freshly baked lemon scones. I would definitely stay here again.
