Beacon Inn at Sidney
Ranked #1 of 8 Sidney B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 May 2007

My husband, myself, and my father-in-law stayed at this B&B in Spetember 2006. We absolutely loved it! Every part of our stay was wonderful, and we would love to return sometime.

First, booking and value:
We booked directly with the inn, and had no problems. In fact, I switched rooms after I had booked, without any trouble. My father-in-law stayed in the Pender Islands room, and my husband and I stayed in the San Juan Island room - both were lovely! We especially liked the jetted tub, and the fireplace was nice for chilly evenings. The price was great as well - we originally wanted to stay in Victoria itself, but found that the room prices were too high - especially as we needed 2 rooms. I was quite happy to find this B&B, and Sidney is not far from Victoria. Not only is it a pretty drive, but Sidney is an adorable, picturesque seaside town. Everyone was quite friendly, although be aware if you are "night owls" that grocery stores and restaurants in the area do close early.

B&B Experience:
The staff are quite friendly; they even gave me a vase to keep, for the flowers we had purchased at the florist around the corner. We loved the coffee and tea placed in the hallway each morning. (There is also coffee and tea available anytime downstairs, but this way, you can have coffee while getting ready in the morning, without going downastairs in your robe!) The breakfasts each morning were indeed gormet, and quite enjoyable, served in their beautiful dining room.

They also have a large book with menus from the various restaurants nearby; they can assist you in making reservations as well. We also chatted a bit with the other guests; everyone was friendly and easy to talk with.

Rooms:
As I said, the rooms are wonderful - no matter which one you choose. They are immaculate, and the beds are plush and delightful to sleep in. They do provide nice robes, and the bath amenities are good quality as well.

Side note: If you like lavender, don't miss the downtown lavender shop - I believe it's called "Saltspring Lavender". Also, do walk down by the pier.

Overall, we would not hesitate to recommend this B&B.

We spent a wonderful Saturday evening in Sidney, away from the hustle and bustle of Victoria. The location is great and there's a lot to do in this part of Vancouver Island. The inn was immaculate. We got to check out all of the rooms, since they weren't booked, and ours was the Orcas Island. Very nice bedding, fireplace was perfect, and the bathtub is something that I just covet. Not a jacuzzi, but a good soaking tub. The staff was friendly, very caring, and genuinely happy to see us. We'll be back!

Having stayed in the Empress Hotel in Victoria, I found that the Beacon Inn was not only cheaper but much much nicer in every way. The rooms are individual, they have character, amazing bedding, and the bathrooms are to die for. The service is top notch and friendly and the Inn is centrally located in Sidney which makes it easy to walk to everything.

This lovely inn is nestled in a quiet neighborhood close to downtown Sidney. Elegant and thoughtfully appointed, this inn made our stay on the island all the more pleasurable.
