We were warmly greeted by our hostess, Lorraine, who made us feel so welcome and at home. We had booked the Rose room on the main floor for my elderly mother and the Camellia room on the second floor for the rest of my family. Both rooms were spotless and had private bathrooms. Loved the decor in each room. Bedding... More

Lorraine is a fabulous hostess & friend. Lovely homemade breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, orange juice, fresh muffins, I can't remember all the yummyness that was served. My husband and I stayed in the Camellia Room, it was upstairs and had a private bath (jacuzzi tub). The Queen Bed was so comfortable that I had the best night's sleep. Being... More

We met the most marvelous lady who just happens to run the Cottage Pirouette. It's in a charming neighborhood within walking distance of a park with a boat launch, beach,and. rock wall suitable for climbing. There we got to see a leopard seal up close and personal. The bus stops just out the front door if you choose to ride... More

My wife and I booked this B&B for a little vacation in Victoria after a family wedding in Surrey. The Pirouette is in Esquimalt just south of downtown Victoria, about a ten minute drive away. When we first arrived, our hostess Loraine met us and welcomed us into her house. We had booked the Sakura room with a king bed.... More

I have been to Cottage Pirouette four times and plan on continuing to stay there. The atmosphere is caring, comfortable and the interior elegant and well designed. The owner is particularly sympathetic. Once I arrived with a broken ankle and she was very helpful. She meets the needs of guests who have dietary restrictions and is generous with her time....

We stayed at Lorraine's Bed and Breakfast last August. Going to Victoria during high season was a challenge and we were happy to stay at her home. Just some minutes from downtown, a friendly hostess who recommended places to eat and sites to visit. A cup of tea was a nice welcome. The B&B has got affordable rooms. We walked... More

Thank you MunichMoira; We are thrilled when someone remembers their happy holiday experience and takes the time to share it with others. That Canada's west coast provided you with a refreshing ocean experience makes us even prouder for setting up our B & B here. A large portion of our business is return guests, so I guess we're doing something... More

What a lovely B&B we happened upon. On a whim we drove to Canada and didn't have lodging reservations but were so happy we landed here. We were warmly welcomed and made to feel right at home.

My husband and I stayed for six nights over the Christmas week and received a special rate for the Camelia room. We thoroughly enjoyed Lorraine's warm personality and her invitation to allow us to come and go as we pleased. Breakfasts were most generous and delicious. Having a kitchenette available to the guests was a great convenience. The room on... More

We stayed there for two nights at cottage pirouette during the summer. From our longttrip in west canada (four weeks) this was, unfortunaltely, not the best location we stayed in, by far. The room, bathroom and location were quite old fashioned (with some broken items) and we didn't feel the welcome that one could expect from such B&B. Top of... More
