    really close to the ferry, buses and restos. very quiet. No tv so we had little to do after 9pm except go to bed. the farm around was neat with deers closeby. Buses to go downtown victoria or butchart gardens were very close to the B&B. Would stay there again. Joe the owner was very courteous and very helpful.

    The host joe was very friendly and accommodating. Just know however, that you do not get fresh linens each day. When asked they were brought right up. We liked being away from Victoria and very quiet night.

  • 4.0.Fair

    bed was comfortable and bathroom large and roomy however new windows required as unable to open any window - all been painted shut except one which was missing ... no glass! Whole property was run down and needed money spendng on it. Breakfast was poor and breakfast table had dog hairs over it. In the property's favour, it was very close to the ferry terminal.

    The bed and pillows are comfortable. Joe (host) is friendly and helpful. Perfect for a stay to be foot passenger to ferries - about 15 minute walk. Nice pub about the same distance away. Continental breakfast in morning. Best tasting blackberry berries growing wild. We really enjoyed the stay.
