“Arrive as a stranger, leave as family”
Reviewed 15 June 2011

We arrived just before dinner and were greeted by Ann, our "hostess with the mostest", who ushered us in and made us feel instantly at home. Our room was wonderfully comfortable and had a private patio. Ann's hospitality, friendliness and meal preparation add tremendously to our rating of 5 stars. We enjoyed our stay and when we left were a bit sad - we arrived as strangers and left as family. We highly recommend the Robert Porter House with its lovely Ann.

We so look forward to staying at Robert Porter House again for another 7 nights this June / July 2011 and seeing one of our favourite people, Anne Schlichter. September 2010 was our 4th trip back to Robert Porter House since 2006. Originally we had stayed there based on the close proximity to the many events Victoria has to offer. We have continued going back due to the fantastic service, great breakfasts and Anne's always very personable and helpful ways.
We have stayed in several B&B's across Canada and a few others in Victoia over the years and met many nice owner / operators, but have not found another person that's makes you feel as welcome as Anne.

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay at the Robert Porter House.
From the moment I first spoke to Ann on the phone to book our stay, I realized that I made the right decision and I hadn't even been there yet.
Upon arrival, a warm welcome by a very genuine hostess, in a cozy friendly home, quickly confirms that you have made the right decision.
We felt relaxed, comfortable, and cared for by someone who is very special and professional. Breakfasts were awesome.
The location, the home, and the room is all perfect but it is the attention to detail by Ann that gives you the feeling ( and not just in your tummy) that, wow I love this place and I am in very good hands.
We will be back!

We stayed here for our first night arriving from Seattle on the Clipper. We walked up to the Porter House in about 10 minutes. Ann is an exceptional hostess and our room was very comfortable and immaculate. The breakfast was delicious and you could choose from several selections. I liked having choices and any dietary needs are respected. We walked to the downtown Victoria area and had dinner at the Irish Times Pub and walked back easily. Ann gave great suggestions for stops along the way as we drove up the island.
We look forward to seeing you next year.
Ann, thank you for your wonderful hospitality.

came for the marathon weekend and was extremely happy that I got a chance to stay at this b&b. Location is phenomenal, the hostess Ann was extremely warm and inviting. She prepared a beautiful post marathon brunch for all participating runners who were staying at the b&b. The rooms are very cozy, clean and the bed was super comfortable!
I highly recommend this b&b.

This B&B is one of the best we have ever stayed at. The hostess Ann was warm and caring and made us feel very comfortable. She made an excellent recommendation to us for dinner. Our room was very clean, well furnished and decorated and we loved the private entrance. Breakfast was a real highlight with a customized menu for each person which is highly unusual. We will certainly return the next time we are in Victoria.

We have no hesitation in recommending this home for a short or long stay. Anne's warm welcome and hospitality was maintained throughout our week-long stay, and we left really feeling at home. Our room, the Beacon Hill West, was attractively furnished, spacious and comfortable, The breakfast menu was our choice, a wonderful and filling start to each day and there was always a "doggie bag" over to keep us going as we explored Victoria. Each day Anne helped us find our way, all the way to arranging a stop for the airport bus, a cheap and convenient ride. If we ever visit Victoria again, this will be our lodging of choice.
