“Great Location”
Reviewed 1 September 2011

Great Service but have had better, We stayed in the Cameo room which was on the third floor ... The room was lovely, but needs a ceiling fan as the little table one is not enough. The soaking tub ... Very Strange One person can fill it & soak but you are in a sitting if you need to rinse (say under arms, the water is not high enough!) If you wanted to wash your hair, you had to rinse with a tacky old pitcher ( A hand held Shower would have made a much classier choice) The toilet paper is the cheapest roughest anybody could find. The breakfast left alot to be desired ... the muffins were very dry, the fruit cups were not even made with fresh seasonal fruit, There was no juice or milk offered just coffee or tea ( not even water offered ) & I am sorry but bagels & lox's is not a gourmet breakfast. The gate broke ... and we could not enter, except thru the gate outside. When I went to complain the night help did not speak enough english to understand, we parked outside the gate and took our chances. This location is close to many attractions & you could walk!

Room Tip: Think twice, alot of other choices nearby!

This is a lovely quiet place to stay in an historic area of Victoria BC. The house is well maintained and spotless. The host was welcoming. The breakfast provided with the cost of the stay was delicious! The house is filled with lovely period antiques. The bed was comfortable. The stairs to the room were very steep. There is no a/c of course, but a fan was provided. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return soon!

Room Tip: The tiny room on the top floor has steep stairs in order to get to it, but the room itself is lovely...

Right from the beginning, Amethyst Inn provided us with a warm welcome and loads of local information to make our trip memorable. Carlson was a genuine host who is always smiling and took interest in our travels and stories. Breakfasts were delicious and the dining room is beautiful, as is the rest of the house, so well taken care of. The neighbourhood is lovely, and a walk, or quick bus into downtown is easy.

My husband and I travel extensively but have never received such wonderful service as we experienced at the Amethyst Inn. The historic house is beautiful , but the staff are exceptional. Every morning we had a gourmet breakfast which was substantial enough to satisfy us until dinnertime. Carlson was the ultimate concierge and host, he made our stay so pleasant we opted for another 2 nights. Secure parking in the beautiful grounds (at no cost, unusual in Victoria) allowed us to leave our rental car, safe and secure while we explored downtown on foot. I look forward to our next visit !

Room Tip: You will be happy with any of the rooms, they are all unique but equally wonderful

True to there pictures, it was a beautiful victorian house. Service was above and beyond our expectations. We had our wedding in the parlor with family and friends. Couldn't ask for anything more. It was perfect!

I came to Victoira for an conference meeting for 2 days. I normally dont stay in B&B but my colleague find here online and talk me into staying here.
We emailed and called which took a while to get a final qoute with the date and final pirce we asked.
We was told the inn is under new ownership now and was closed for 3 months for renos. And now they just opened , luckily we are the first customers they had!! We booked a cheaper room but was upgraded the suite because the inn was empty.
The new owner gave me 15% disscount on their reg rate. They are humble nice people I did enjoy their company during the best B&B breakfast served I've seen.
The inn is surrounded by mansions, fireplaces with Minton's tiles, ceiling rosettes, and original ceiling and wallpapers.....different but great experience for us.
