Hemingways By the Sea Bed and Breakfast Inn
Ranked #24 of 92 Victoria B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 August 2012

The B&B is lovely, spacious and clean. The hostess is so pleasant, warm and inviting, you can't help but feel like a cherished guest. To top it off we enjoyed a delicious French toast breakfast with fresh fruit, eggs, croissants and raisin bread. Definitely a B&B I would go back again in a heart beat!

This was a charming place. Just a block to two from the sound with a pleasant park to picnic in. It was about 4 blocks from the bus line to downtown Victoria. This was a boon for someone who drove route 3 across BC. Madame Ilona went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. If you miss Hemmingway's by the Sea you miss the best part of Victoria, BC.

Love this place, Ilona was a great hostess and made the most wonderful breakfast. It was easy to find and quite. Would recommend to everyone, couples and families, Ilona was very accommodating to our needs and we had a family of four. Ilona was very knowledgeable about the area and had a lot of great ideas for day trips while there. I recommend you call her first to help you plan your vacation to Victoria, she can help you plan everything out.

My experience at Hemmingway’s By the Sea was comfortable, warm and restful.
Our hostess provided us with a large clean suite, tastefully decorated in period style and a large balcony. The view was breathtaking of the sea, large trees and a beautiful garden. Ilona provided us with Interesting historical facts of the house and adjoining buildings. We had an abundant, healthy breakfast in the elegant dining room. The food, china, crystal and cotton embroidered napkins made the experience feel as if we were in 19th century England.
Our hostess was generous, thoughtful and a pleasure to be with. She exhibited an excellent example of customer service and professionalism in the hospitality business.
For a quiet, clean and comfortable stay I highly recommend this delightful Inn.

Room Tip: The Hemmingway suite was lovely. The entire Inn was quiet.

Hemingways by the Sea was a delightful experience. We were treated so warmly and our every need attended to. Ilona knows Vancouver Island very well and was very knowledgeable in helping us plan our travel itinerary. Hemingways was close to everything and very convenient to come and go from. The breakfasts are very good and the room cozy. I will be back!!!
