Magnificent Georgian Italianate mansion built in 1885 for the former Provincial Lieutenant Governor, E.G. Prior. Located less than 5 minutes by car from the centre of town and 2 blocks from Craigdarroch Castle and Government House. Beamed ceilings, highlighted with ornate plasterwork, elegantly furnished rooms with private baths will immediately make you feel welcome and comfortable. Lovely full breakfasts are served in the dining room.

This is an amazing house with a warm, friendly gracious host. Room was large, beautifully decorated and the king bed very comfortable. Joan and her lovely daughter Rene served a scrumptious breakfast of fruits, eggs and bacon in a gourmet manner. We shall definitely return.
