Victoria by the Sea is one of those places you can hardly comprehend: quiet, sleepy, unbothered by the world outside its borders, seemingly remote and with a population in winter of only about 100, believe it or not. Time seems to have stood still here as the appearance of the Orient Hotel (the only hotel in town) seems to confirm. The hotel certainly has charm but seniors need to be aware that there are only moderately lit stairways to the upper floors, the rooms are not spacious (nor are the bathrooms: our small sink would even have made British tourists gasp) and there is no air conditioning which this summer, particularly in the upper floors of the hotel, would have been most welcome. And yet, and yet.... You can't help but like the place. The room furnishings were varied

As others have written, we were a bit concerned by the somewhat run down appearance of the hotel from outside.. Inside we were pleasantly surprised by the decor and the well taken care of interior. Each room is decorated differently with a small sitting room upstairs between a couple of bedrooms. Our sink was small and tucked behind the bathroom door. However, it did the trick. We moved the large comfy chair to make room for our suitcases. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. The owner told us the hotel is called the Orient because at one time Victoria was a bustling port with many ships from The Orient; hence the name and oriental influenced items in the living room.

Thanks for your review. Yes,the exterior does need some tlc. We had a miserable spring this year and painting plans had to be put on hold. fingers crossed for a mild autumn.

Had a two night stay in the beautiful village of Victoria. Don’t judge a book by its cover, the hotel looks a bit run down from the outside and gave us concerns. The room we had was spacious, clean and large. The bed was so comfortable, we slept so well. The house itself is beautiful on the inside with elements of luxury there. Yes, the blinds could do with replacing and it isn’t the most modern of bathrooms but it had a great shower. Breakfast are fabulously cooked - just be careful that greedy other guests don’t eat all the wonderful muffins! The home made jams are heavenly. We had some very rude neighbours on our first night, talking very loudly both late at night and early morning. The walls are not thick or soundproof so you do need a considerate neighbour, which we got

This B&B requires a love of Victorian decorating which might allow you to overlook the little inconveniences like the smallest sink I have ever seen, other than the one that fit on the top of a toilet tank in Japan. Our room was bubblegum pink and we had a hard time fitting our two large suitcases in the room (in NS and PEI for over 2 weeks). Owners were very nice and breakfasts were delicious, though.

Hi Cindy, Thanks for your feedback. Yes, it was hard finding a sink that size, but anything bigger would take up much of the bathroom. We do have some rooms that are quite a bit larger, and we try not to place those with longer stays in the smaller rooms but sometimes there is no way around it. I hope the charm of our village made up for the cramped quarters. Oh, and the pink is not my favorite either. Autumn is here and this room is first on my list for a facelift. Any suggestions?

We spent two nights at the Orient in Victoria by the Sea, PEI. Our room had 2 twin beds, very comfy. Nice big windows for sea air, ceiling fan, nice décor in blues. Our breakfasts each morning were tasty. Enjoyed a nice quiet stay here and would recommend to others. Lots of history at this hotel too!

Thank you! We love the quiet nights that our little village provides. Of course, with autumn here, it's about to get a whole lot quieter. I hope you can make it here again. Cheers!
