If you are looking for something different than a hotel you should try Spinker's Guest House. The rooms, while small, are very comfortable, with a very good bed and two excellent wing backs. The fire place is a pleasant touch in the fall to spring period. Guest robes are provided for relaxing. The spa-bath is pleasant. Parking is tight but... More

Outstanding beer, amazing service, delicious food, picturesque setting. This is paradise. Within walking distance of Downtown Victoria or a short boat taxi ride. Victoria has many great pubs, far better than most cities in North America, and this one is the best.

We enjoyed staying at the heritage house, but we found the front desk staff, while courteous enough, not that friendly. She was definitely in a hurry. There was just a bit of coffee in the jar for the French press, which was a surprise, because it should be one of those things that gets automatically checked. The server in the... More

Worth driving across the bridge for the local brew. Enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Nice view of the harbor. They have awesome taste in music (classic rock). One of the Highlights of our adventure into Canada. They had a yummy assortment of ciders too.
