The best place we have ever stayed in our travels. Beautiful clean rooms, beautiful lounge and gardens, friendly and helpful staff, and five star breakfasts. Diana and Alex are friendly and helpful. You can't ask for more!

Our stay was wonderful. The Marco Polo inn was beautiful inside and out. Hosts Deana and Alex made our stay a very memorial one and we plan on going back to enjoy their wonderful hospitality. I would highly recommend the Marco Polo in to anyone looking to stay at a bed and breakfast in Victoria. Everything was great from the...

This beautiful mansion was apparently a gift to a new bride in 1923. From the moment we drove into the driveway, we knew we had found a special place. We were met by Alex (Alejandro), and his lovely wife Diana. Alex conducted a thorough orientation of the property which allowed us to feel at home within minutes. The rooms are...

We stayed 3 nights at the Marco Polo. Hosts Deana & Alex were wonderful and could not have been more attentive and their breakfasts were to die for. We were in the Silk Road room and it was beautiful as were all their other rooms. We will definately return.

We stayed in the Alexandria room for four nights this June. Can't say enough about the old world feel, the service, a five course, homemade breakfast, the grounds and even the tame deer in the yards. Eliza, Alex and Deanna couldn't have been nicer. The chocolate every night on our bed was such a nice touch. Even soft music playing...

Took a quick trip to Victoria with my aunt and stayed at Villa Marco Polo which was a wonderful experience. We stayed in the Alexandria Room which was on the second floor. It was very clean and looked exactly as it did in the pictures. I liked the location which is a few minutes away from the city in a...

The Villa Marco Polo Inn was absolutely fabulous from the rooms, grounds, facility, 5 course breakfast, and overall service. We enjoyed our stay in the gorgeous Zanzibar room, with a true spa like bed and bath. Dianna welcomed us after their normal hours due to a late arrival and took her time to ensure we became familiar with the sights,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A leisurely game of bocce, a glass of amarone, a stroll past the reflecting pool of an Italian Renaissance garden, a massage in a romantic penthouse spa. Tuscany or Umbria perhaps? In fact, the exotic Villa Marco Polo, one of Victoria's most sumptuous inns, is located in Victoria's elegant Rockland quarter. This classically designed Victoria Inn, built in 1923 as a gift to a young bride, remains a favourite romantic getaway and wedding venue. ... more   less
