Hillcrest Ave Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 8 Ladysmith B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We chose to stay here for one night as we were in transit to the west coast of Vancouver Island, but we would love to stay longer in the future if the opportunity ever presents itself. This was one of the best b and b experiences we have had. Debbie and Darwin are excellent hosts, very friendly, comfortable talking to people about a variety of subjects, very attentive to their guests' needs. They suggested an excellent nearby restaurant (Inn at Brent Cove, as I recall) and other nearby attractions. The house is brand new, beautiful, and comfortable. The view from the deck, living room, and dining area out over the Strait of Georgia and islands is beautiful. The breakfast was fabulous, perhaps the best I've ever had in a b and b. There is easy access from the main road, but the house is far enough away from the road to be very quiet. There are beautiful gardens and the lot is adjacent to woods on one side. And for all this, the price is very reasonable, especially compared to the general cost of accommodations in this area. We would love to stay here again!

When we decided to make the move from Alberta to Ladysmith , we needed somewhere to stay until our house was ready to move into. Staying at Hillcrest B&B was an easy choice as my husband had stayed there in May during our house renovations. He raved about the comfortable accommodations and wonderful breakfasts. He was absolutely right! Clean, comfortable accommodations in a beautiful home surrounded by lovely gardens and fabulous breakfasts every morning. The cherry on top is that Debbie & Darwin are charming and gracious hosts whose hospitality leaves you feeling like you've stayed with close friends. While we love our new home, we miss breakfast with Debbie & Darwin.

Room Tip: The self contained suite is wonderful for longer stays.

My husband and I stayed for a night this August and they were wonderful hosts. We had cycled to their place mostly up hill and they were kind enough to give us a ride to a wonderful restaurant for dinner and told us just to give them a call when we were ready to come back. The room, breakfast and the warm welcome in their home was wonderful. We will book there again if we find ourselves in the area at any time.

My daughter and I stayed at the B&B for three days in late June. I was on crutches with a fractured ankle, but the hosts Debbie and Darwin were very accomodating and helpful, and the visit went well. The breakfasts were fabulous, the accomodation comfortable and spotless, and their place has a magnificent view.

Highly recommended.

Stayed at Hillcrest two nights this spring. Nice new home, spotlessly clean. Absolute gourmet breakfast! Ate so much had to spend half the morning relaxing with coffee on the sunny front deck overlooking the harbor... a real hardship! Thanks Darwin and Debbie!

We stayed at the B & B while doing some volunteer work. We were very warmly greeted both by the owners and their 4 legged feline friends. Very engaging and welcoming couple and easy to interact with. The breakfast was to die for and so elegantly served. A lovely home and wonderfully designed and welcoming. Thanks for the great overnight stay:)
