Travellers' Choice
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.

On a tight budget, I almost felt stranded trying to find a room for one night in Victoria, BC. Fortunately, I found Marketa's B&B and had an amazing night. It was affordable, I had my own bathroom, in a cozy, clean, comfortable room. I woke up to the smell of fresh coffee & homemade muffins! Warmly greeted by friendly, kind faces- alongside an amazing breakfast! The home is in beautiful James bay and very close to the inner harbor/ downtown Victoria. I was able to park my car and easily walk to do my shopping. Thankfully, there is also a nice little kitchen for guests to use, so I was able to make my own dinner too. This place goes above and beyond great guest service. I was treated like family and I didn't want to leave! I wish I could have stayed longer and I am grateful to have found such a special place to stay.

The location of this B&B is excellent!! Walkable to many things and we had a great time. Breakfasts are very nice but don’t start until 830am which is a bit late IMO. Easy Peasy check in, we had one of the jacuzzi rooms and quite enjoyed it..but be aware that the jacuzzi takes up a lot of the room so not a lot of room for suitcases etc but we managed. Very nice shower in this room. Extremely clean for an older home and we noticed. Be aware that you will hear others enter their room etc because this is a lovely older home but the floor and stairs creak..which is normal. I would recommend

I naïvely booked this bed and breakfast based on pictures and reviews. I was allocated the budget room #4. The room contained Walmart style bedding, frayed and extremely old towels and the room was barely large enough to hold a bed. I suggested you do not book here and find another accommodation in downtown Victoria. We left immediately.

Dear Barb, I am glad that you call the review buyer beware. I really don't understand why you book the budget room ( the most reasonably priced room with breakfast in the area) and then scream at my staff to the point that you had to be escorted from the house. There are many who appreciate the reasonably priced room in James Bay. Here is an example of what another person thought of the same room: "Wonderful! Very comfortable bed! I loved the little outdoor access. I was grateful the staff let us park behind the property as there was a marathon going on in the morning. I ran the race and the guest house was perfectly located near the start line. Very friendly staff and the breakfast was gorgeous. I loved the delicious homemade muffins and the florentine eggs benny. Yummm! We walked everywhere we needed to go during our stay. Lovely!" Obviously, you did not pay attention to what you booked since each room has a picture and dimensions on the website. So, yes please pay attention to what you booking, and if you book a budget room don't expect the Empress suite.

I just love Marketas and the old charm of her place. This is the 3rd time I have stayed and nothing have changed. The amazing breakfast is still as tasty as years ago. Excellent location in the heart of the James Bay Peninsula. Easy walking everywhere. Staff is very helpful. Thank you Marketa, Dar and Ge keep up great work.

This is our second time back at Marketa’s B&B. We had the most wonderful time! Marketa and her team are so welcoming and helpful. Always there for us if we need anything. Beds are very comfortable and the breakfast is fantastic. We love the central location to everything as you can walk and don’t need a car. But also love that its a nice leafy quite street.

Property needs to be renovated. Very tired used up feeling. Dirty corners and paint. Rugs and throws that were very worn and used up. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was fresh. Flowers on back deck were fully blooming and lovely. Would not recommend nor stay here again.

Hello Bernadette, we already reply to your review on Expedia. The house is over 100 years old and obviously not your cup of tea. Sorry you did not like it. We do take care of the house and there are many who appreciate.
