“Welcoming Hostess”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013

On April 25, 2013 we stayed at the Oak Bay Guest House. Nicole and her daughters greeted us on an early arrival and welcomed us in to the Guest House. The house is furnished with numerous vintage pieces and put together quite nicely. The home is situated within walking distance to the Oak Bay shopping district and to the ocean. We were celebrating a birthday and were provided with knives and forks and plates so we could have the cake in the upstairs sun room along with a cup of tea. Breakfast was fantastic. Thanks for making us welcome.

Room Tip: Three of us stayed in the "Romance Room". Odd name for a room that accommodates three. T...

While attending medical appointments in Victoria, my wife and I stayed here and felt at home. Mario and Nicole made us feel like family. The rooms are very comfortable and elegant in old fashioned charm. Breakfasts are second to none. Gluten free available as well. We will return often.

I stayed with Nicole and Mario in April and with some dietary restrictions on my diet I find it sometimes difficult to get a healthy and good breakfast. Nicole is an incredible cook and has thebest Gluten free recipes. Everyday I was looking forward to come down for breakfast. The entire family is involved.. Just wow.... Run a huge place like this with three children, is not easy, but those two are doing an incredible job... Well done and keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Duchess is a great room and very very comfy

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Oak Bay Guest House which had everything I needed: proximity to the beach and Oak Bay shops, free wireless, delicious breakfasts, and a lovely host family. I will recommend the Guest House to friends and family and definitely hope to visit again.

Delightful young couple have just taken over the running of this B&B. Great location - close to beaches, parks, and Oak Bay Village, gracious hosts (Nicole and Mario are new to managing this property) and wonderful breakfasts.

This was a great choice to stay - quiet; great TV lounge/room for guests to enjoy. Microwave; teas; hot chocolate etc.. available in the guest lounge. Hosts were very friendly and ran one heck of an efficient Bed and Breakfast. Considering the amount of rooms available, I was surprised to how quiet it was. Very happy with my choice and will return when I return to Victoria.

Room Tip: Romantic room is gorgeous; on second floor - has little seating area and you hear no traffic in the...
