Marketa's Bed and Breakfast offers a unique taste of traditional hospitality mixed with European flair. As soon as you walk into this heritage home built in 1912, the panelled walls echo a different era. An era of Edwardian comfort and hospitality, a place to rest and recuperate after a day investigating the many treasures of Victoria BC, the garden city of Canada.

A beautiful experience all around. The staff and accomidations were top class. The Heritage home so well kept, the location so convieniant. Breakfast, so delisious and made to order. Our freinds have been advised of our experience and are anxious to stay at Marketa's on their next visit to Victoria. We will certainly stay at Marketa's again.

From the first phone call, I felt welcome. Gerel had my room ready and warm. It was perfect as I was very tired. Dar and Gerel work together with a pride that shows. The room was so inviting and there is a sitting area beside it. The bed was so comfortable. And the breakfast was a choice. I choose the Eggs Benedict and they were so good and my daughter had the pancakes. It was all perfect.

A lovely period house used as a b&b. Amazingly friendly, lovely ladies ran breakfast, including Marketa on occasions, offering a nice, freshly cooked menu. We had en suite facilities, but you could probably get a cheaper rate if you shared. We were there 10 days and loved it! Happily recommend to anyone. Well done Marketa!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Marketa’s a week ago. The location is perfect; easy walking distance to Inner Harbor, Beacon Hill Park, Downtown and Fisherman’s Wharf. The breakfasts were delicious and prepared with great care and joy. The staff were great. We picked the Budget Queen Room, which was described as “a snug fit”, and Marketa reached out to make sure we understood that there wouldn’t be “lounging” space in the room. It was snug, but it was very clean, as was the en suite bathroom, and we weren’t there to spend time in our room. It served our purpose. That being said, when we come back, we will book a larger room, but we highly recommend Marketa’s and the staff (women) who make it a special place.

Marketa's is an older home and the rooms are small but the welcome and the character of this place is large! We loved our room, the honeymoon suite, and the weather was hot in Victoria but there was a unit in the room that we could have it as cool or warm as we liked making it very comfortable. The breakfasts here are divine and the coffee is excellent. It is within walking distance to all of the harbour and downtown area of Victoria and easy walking to many eateries as well as the sea wall walk along Dallas Road. The location is excellent, the character of the place and the staff are excellent and we will stay here again.

A place where the mornings are always full of cheer, Market's bed and breakfast, a place so dear. Where the hospitality is warm and pure, And the breakfast spreads keep me coming back for more. As I sit down to a feast so divine, I'm reminded that life's simple pleasures are mine, The aroma of coffee, bacon and eggs, Is a symphony that tickles my taste buds and begs. I'm thankful for everything you do, For your love and care, for your kind hearts so true. Thank you for welcoming me like family, For creating an atmosphere that's warm and homely. Your attention to detail is second to none, From the crisp white linens to the bread freshly done, Market's bed and breakfast, where dreams come true, A place where I find comfort, and bask in gratitude. So here's a little thank you, from the bottom of my heart, For the joy and love you bring, right from the start. Market's bed and breakfast, you truly make my day, And that's why I keep coming back, each time to stay.
