My husband and I had never stayed at a B&B before but, enticed by the mention of Hummingbirds, the chance to see a Bald Eagle up close and wonderful reviews we decided to give it a go at Graycliff. I am thrilled to say we were not disappointed! We reserved the Ocean View room and when we walked in all...

Just home from our first trip to Vancouver Island and thanks to Warren and Jan for the wonderful hospitality and welcome we received at Graycliff Cottage. This really is a special place coming home in the evening and sitting in the hot tub overlooking the ocean, the resident hummingbirds (The Eagles were away!) amazing star lit sky and Warren's fantastic...

On our first trip to Vancouver Island we decided to pamper ourselves and stay at a B&B. We couldn't have done better. Warren was a very welcoming host (his wife had time off), and was great in answering any questions we had as well as cooking up a great breakfast each morning. Highlights are the terrific views, the long walks...

Thank you so much for taking the time to send in this review. Warren and I are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay. The eagles have left now to take their baby (our 29th) away to feed at the mouths of the rivers, they will return the first of Oct. The hummingbirds are still coming and...

Great location, central on the island. Delicious breakfast and company. Hot tub looking out over the ocean. What a beautiful view, you can even see the cruise ships making there way up the coast. Feeding of bald eagles in morning great- be quick but they don't land just swoop through. We had the ocean view room with private deck and...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for our B&B. Warren and I are happy that you enjoyed the Oceansuite, the views, and the eagles. The baby eagle fledged 5 days ago and is very entertaining now. Hopefully we will see you again in the future. - Jan Matthews, Graycliff Cottage Oceanfront B&B

My wife and I just spent a night here as a little getaway. The view from the oceanfront room (and the back yard) is spectacular. Ocean vistas, hummingbirds and eagles are all there, very relaxing. The room was nice, bed very comfortable and the owners are very friendly. Breakfast was good and hardy. Great location for day trips to Coombs,...

Warren and Janette Matthews maintain a quiet bed and breakfast with a view to die for. Graycliff is far enough from Lantzville Road to be quiet and has its own pet eagles who are fed by Warren after a very good and hearty breakfast. The rooms are comfortable but we spent most of our time taking in the views of...

Stayed one night at Graycliff in August and couldn't be any happier for our choice. The ocean view was stunning and overall, the location for the house is beautiful and peaceful. After the long day we relaxed in the jazuzzi watching stars which was just perfect. In the morning Warren made us blueberry pancakes which kept us going late until...

Great place to stay, Warren and Jan have quite the property and to witness the Eagles having a morning breakfast just after we had ours was awesome.

We were lucky enough to stay 2 nights at Graycliff at the end of July. The experience was nothing short of amazing. From the most spectacular views to the comfortable Oceanview room to the great hospitality from Warren and Jan, this was just a perfect stay.
