If you're a fan of Hemingway or you're just looking for a quiet, clean bed and breakfast you'll enjoy Hemingway by the Sea. A half hour walk will take you to downtown Victoria. Charley & Patty, the owners treat you like visiting friends.

We stayed 2 nights. Pat and Charlie are gracious hosts. They greeted us at the door and were on hand for breakfast. The Key West bedroom is large and the bay window gave us a view of the water. It has a ceiling fan, which we did not need during our early September visit. Beautifully carved antique bed and side... More

A clean and charming room in a beautiful building in a very nice and quiet area of Victoria, walking distance by the Center of the city (about 30 minutes walking). The owners Patty and Charlie are very kind and efficient in answering every question you have.

Charlie is a very, very kind host and did serve us delicious ‘customised’ breakfasts. The rooms were very spacious and loaded with facilities… in a very quiet environment. Our host was also very helpful and gave us good advice.

Very very nice couple welcomed us. Room very clean and some view out the window. Bathroom was outside the room, but privately for us. Parking near the house. Breakfast was more than good. Lots of stuff to choose from, even for us, lactose intolerant. The owner was more than helpful when we needed assistance to find our next accommodation. We... More

The Tudor style b&b was very clean and well kept. We thought that Patty and Charlie were simply charming and have done an amazing job in the short time they've had the b&b. We didn't spend much time there (mostly sleeping!) as we were in town for a wedding but the space was quiet and clean. The hosts were incredibly... More

This B&B is located in a very quiet area, minutes away from downtown Victoria. Richards is a great host, that takes care of you like your were family. The rooms are spacious and very clean, but could use a little bit of an upgrade in the recent future (e.g. our bed was a bit squeaky and the mattress quite hard).... More

The previous TA reviews were misleading as they were quite positive. I felt the BB was very, old and outdated, and was horrible value (especially for Kenya room). The new owner did not welcome feedback. There was no outside space guests were able to use and other nicer insides paces were off limits to guests although pictured in other reviews.... More
