Another reviewer said she felt like it was like her grandmother's home. I agree if your grandmother had lovely furniture and beautiful fireplaces. Another reviewer said that the breakfasts were always eggs benedict/florentine - but that is the Sunday morning breakfast only. I wasn't there on Sunday but I wish I had been since those are my #1 favorite breakfasts....

The experience was exquisite. I felt like I was in my grandmother's home with her warm smile and scrumptious breakfasts. Truly a home away from home. A "home base" to spend cozy days and evenings. I will be back very soon.

This was such a lovely quiet place to spend to long weekend. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were super tasty and the free muffins were a nice touch.The rooms don't have TVs but you can use the share lounge or bring your lap top and use their wireless.

We have stayed here numerous times due to its proximity to our relatives' home. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the stairs are creaky (which can be quaint or irritating, depending on your perspective). My gripe is really with the breakfast menu, which hasn't changed since our last visit. I'm sorry, a choice between Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine...

If you have never been to Oak Bay , Victoria, BC go there as quickly as you can as it is charming and largely unchanged from 1912 when this charming Guest House was built. Derek and his wife bought the place 4 years ago and have updated and transformed it into a wonderfully comfortable place to use as a base...

Our recent stay at the Oak Bay Guest House was the best home-away-from-home experience we've ever had. (Combined, the four of us have 282 years of experience!) The ambiance of the house is charming, comfortable, and relaxed, and the owners and staff are even more so. Since I'm a night-owl, I especially appreciated the upstairs sunroom where I could read,...

We stayed here just for one night during our 2 night visit to Victoria. We were offered a very warm and friendly welcome. Our twin room was perfect and the private bathroom was very clean and serviceable despite looking slightly old. We were informed of all the guest facilities, including a sun room with tea and coffee etc available but...

We had a great stay at the Oak Bay Guest House. The house is absolutely charming. Built in 1912 and added onto in 1922 to be an Inn, this house is definitely period perfect and demonstrates the architecture of the time. Our suite was very reasonably priced with a sitting room, large bedroom and a private bath. We slept soundly...

We were given a very warm welcome by Egle, and found the house to be charming and very comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and very substantial, and we were even given muffins to take with us. The garden is lovely and we spent a relaxing hour soaking up the sunshine. The sun room was a great meeting place for our group...

Don't skip the breakfasts - they are way beyond the normal B&B experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the quiet, safe community of Oak Bay, where wealthy Victorians have been escaping the hustle and bustle of Victoria's Inner Harbour and the Empress Hotel for over a hundred years. Be only minutes (and a world) away from all the Victoria has to offer. This Victoria Bed and Breakfast, located in BC, Canada, is a gracious 1912 Victorian Home. The home was converted to the Newport Inn in 1922 and has been accommodating travelers to Victoria since then. There are 9 rooms and 2 suites, all with private bathrooms (10 of the bathrooms are en suite). Free breakfast. Sun lounge is perfect for an afternoon cup of tea or snack. A fireside lounge is cozy for an evening glass of wine. Oak Bay is a walkers paradise. Easy walking distance to Oak Bay Village, Oak Bay Beach Hotel, Oak Bay Marina, Victoria Golf Club, Royal Victoria Yacht Club, Willow Beach and almost countless parks. Close to University of Victoria and Camosun. Enjoy the tranquility of a traditional English home in the heart of Oak Bay Village, steps from the Salish Sea. ... more   less
