We arrived at RP house a little late, Bing was nice enough to stay up a little late and welcome us when we arrived. Excellent underground gated parking which is a huge plus gave us a nice initial impression. He also gave us an "upgrade" from the Garden Suite which to be honest I;m not quite sure what the upgrade...

Stayed here for a night after booking with easy Rez, I was on a bike trip and sometimes get nervous at the places I stay as a bike I once owned was pushed over, but was pleasantly surprised when this place had a secure underground garage for my bike, the house itself was very big, the Maclean suite I stayed...

We stayed at the Robert Porter house in mid march 2012. March is considered low season and a quiet time for tourists. During the slow season, we learned that the rooms could be booked out for weeks or months at a time, with no meals supplied for those clients. We had booked 2 nights through Easy Rez and found them...

Picked the Robert Porter House mostly for location and it was perfect. Only a block or two to BC Museum and Parliament buildings and Harbor. This property not good if you need an elevator, as there are steps to bedrooms and also parking, which was free in a garage nearby. Was traveling with my husband and a friend, so we...

We booked the Robert Porter House for a relaxing weekend in Victoria. Our goal was to be able to walk to all the downtown areas. The location is perfect.. but set far enough away from the noise of the city. The house is a charming heritage home. Our room was beautiful, spacious and clean. It has a small private balcony....

The house was previousely managed by a British lady but now is managed by the owners. Basically, there are 5 ensuites in the...

We arrived just before dinner and were greeted by Ann, our "hostess with the mostest", who ushered us in and made us feel instantly at home. Our room was wonderfully comfortable and had a private patio. Ann's hospitality, friendliness and meal preparation add tremendously to our rating of 5 stars. We enjoyed our stay and when we left were a...

We so look forward to staying at Robert Porter House again for another 7 nights this June / July 2011 and seeing one of our favourite people, Anne Schlichter. September 2010 was our 4th trip back to Robert Porter House since 2006. Originally we had stayed there based on the close proximity to the many events Victoria has to offer....

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay at the Robert Porter House. From the moment I first spoke to Ann on the phone to book our stay, I realized that I made the right decision and I hadn't even been there yet. Upon arrival, a warm welcome by a very genuine hostess, in a cozy friendly home, quickly confirms...

  • A bit of the blind missing. The window faces an area accessible by other suites.
  • Wall needing repair in garden suite
  • Interiour of the boiler room that is adjacent to the garden suite.
