We spent a couple of nights at this B&B, in the Blue Heron Room, and our experience couldn't have been better. On arrival, we were greeted warmly by Sue and Zen, and then, over a glass of wine on the beautiful heated patio, Sue gave us a really useful orientation about the B&B and info on Victoria and region; definitely a nice touch.
The Blue Heron room is spacious, tastefully decorated, and looks on to a very pretty flower-filled garden. The King bed is super comfy. I had some initial reservations about being on the first floor, next to the front entrance, but I needn't have worried. The room was really quiet, very private, and I slept perfectly. Don't hesitate for a moment about booking this beautiful room (the big jacuzzi tub is a bonus).
The breakfasts are not only huge and tasty, they are also works of art. You can tell that Sue puts in tremendous effort in their preparation.
Across the Harbour B&B is only a 5 minute drive from downtown, but you should really take the time to do the 30-40 minute sea side walk. It's easy, flat, and has wonderful scenery.
Best of all, Sue and Zen are gracious hosts and just really nice people. The next time we come to Victoria, we'll be staying at this B&B.
