We stayed at the Lilac room for one night. After finding the place in the quiet Rockland area, we had a very warm welcome by the Inn keeper. She showed us around the house, including pointing out the free soft drinks, water, snacks and self-made cookies for her guests.
The room was a jewel looking like not much had been done since it was created around 1912. Nonetheless all the modern amenities are available and at hand.
The Inn keeper told us the way on how to walk to the centre of Victoria and had good recommendations at hand for dinner places - also around the Rockland area. The area is so quiet that you can even leave the windows open over night.
Breakfast was a wonderful start in the day with a menu cooked by Ian and his helping hands in the kitchen. And it was simply a great experience and start in another day.
