“Great Place to stay”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

This B&B is within easy walking distance to harbour and evening dinning. There is a welcoming sparkling wine and truffles and sherry in the lounge for guests. The room we had was spacious and well appointed. Your choice of breakfast is brought to you in your room. This is different but works well. We would recommend the eggs benedict which come with fruit and croissants.

What an amazing B&B! We are from the area and just needed a quick get-away and the Humboldt House was the perfect spot! The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean. The truffles upon arrival were delcious. The breakfast was delievered to our door at our requested time and could not have tasted better. We will be back again and again!

Room Tip: Windsor Room was on ground floor so we weren't concerned about people below us.

We stayed 3 nights here and it was such a pleasure. Breakfast is a special treat not only because it is so delicious but it's delivered directly to your room though a pass through. It was the perfect refuge from the city. Birds signing in the morning, soft sounds of church bells in a Japanese themed room. Such a different experience froom a hotel and we throughouly enjoyed our stay!

The room was romantic and lovely (surprised at no shower, but the jacuzi tub was what we really wanted anyway...). The food was fantastic, and delivered via a dumbwaiter so no need to greet someone at the door for room service. Delicious and cozy. Since we eloped, the owners and other guests became our wittnesses and added to the impromtu wedding so beautifully. Will have to go back for anniversaries and other visits to Victoria. Love it!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would be an excellent choice.

This was a great location as we were close to everything and enjoyed beautiful walks downtown. Our room was breathtaking and made this into the whole old Canada experience. The wood burning fireplace had the aromatic cedar wood to burn in it and relaxing in the jacuzzi tub made this an excellent place to unwind, relax and leave your stress behind. The breakfast was another experience and I still miss them. Beautiful breakfast which I won't go into detail and ruin the surprise. Discreet and great proprieter as he was always there when we needed something but otherwise invisible.
I would highly recommend this as a romantic getwaway or a place to unwind from the daily grind. I left my troubles behind in about 15 min. We were able to walk every where and only needed transportation to and from the airport. We were witnesses for a couple who had there wedding ceremony in the parlour - it was a beautiful place to do this.
I can't think of anything I would want different about my stay at Humboldt House.

My husband and I spent this past Christmas as guests at Humboldt house b&B and it exceeded our expectations. Our first time staying at Humboldt House, we decided to stay in the Gazebo room and it was just beautiful. The house was peaceful, festive and the hosts were warm and inviting. We felt at home and relaxed and loved the opportunity to have our own little cocoon with a comfy bed, crackling fireplace and jacuzzi tub. The idea of breakfast being passed into our room in a basket was perfect as we could lay in bed and wait for the little knock at the door...what a treat. You can select your breakfast the night before and choose the time you would like them to deliver it to your room. We loved just getting out of bed and eating in our pyjamas in the privacy of our room. We now consider this place our little get away and can't wait to return. I'm going back for mother's day with my daughter and some lady friends and would recommend it to anyone looking for a heavenly hideaway.

Room Tip: The Gazebo room was very spacious but we sneaked a peek into some of the other rooms and they all se...

A devine retreat from modern day life. Ideally situated the Humboldt house is in the perfect location for both business and pleasure. The surroundings were luxurious and the breakfast divine. No need for awkward breakfast chat in a shared dining room, a delightful layered basket of delicious treats was privately delivered. In room jacuzzi tub, roaring fire and David's handmade truffles, it doesn't get much better. Quick walk to all the sights of Victoria. Go visit - you won't regret it!
